About the property

La Cala de Mijas & Fuengirola - Tranquil Location, Mountain And Sea Views, 5 Minutes By Car To Beach

Casa Katrin is a large Andalusian style villa with its own pool and beautiful terraces and gardens. We have a 4 person lift to our top floor terrace. The lift measures 120cm x 90cm and is big enough for wheel chair access or for persons with walking difficulties. Perfect for Mum with the buggy. We are situated in a peaceful location, semi rural, open fields to the front and wonderful mountain and sea views. We are in a private residential complex URB: Cerros del Aguila. A 25 minute drive by motorway from Malaga Airport makes it an easy transition to your holiday home. This region will appeal to all ages and interests, as Casa Katrin is near the golden, sandy beaches and warm Mediterranean sea. We are close to many golf courses and near landscapes of natural beauty. There are picturesque villages to visit which date back to Phoenician and Roman times and by contrast there is a bustling nightlife in Marbella/Fuengirola and other towns along the coast.

About John Isles

John and Gill Isles are a retired couple with two children Christopher and Katrin. We have named our villa after our daughter. We have had our villa for many years and our first family holiday in the villa was in July 1993. We retired in 2003 and decided that we have such a lovely house in Spain we must live there. To supplement our pension we move out of our house in the peak holiday period and make it available for vacations. We have a great routine each year to pack away all our personal effects ready for our guests. We say to one another each year another massive spring clean and lets get rid of all the clutter and things we do not want. Be our guest please visit and find out much more about Casa Katrin

John Isles purchased this villa in 1985

First class location and owners.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the property many times over the years and we have never been disappointed with out stay. John and Gill are amazing hosts and ever so helpful.

We have stayed with just the 2 of us and also had a full house. We will continue to stay at Casa Katrin for as many years as we are able. John and Gill should be proud of the property and the service they provide.

Thanks again both.

Mike and Samantha x

The nearest airport is at Malaga and is a 25 minute drive (mainly by motorway A7) to our villa. By car, Gibraltar airport is approx. 1.5 hours, Seville airport is approx. 2.5 hours and Granada airport is approx. 2 hours.

Car hire is recommended for Casa Katrin. If you wish tour Spain a lovely experience is to sail from Plymouth or Portsmouth with Brittany Ferries. This luxury overnight cruise will sail you to Santander and from there a leisurely drive, stop over night or an approx 10hr drive to Casa Katrin.


Mijas 15 minutes, La Cala 10 minutes, Marbella 20 minutes, Seville 2.5 hours, Granada 2.5 hours, Gibraltar 1.5 hours drive.

Further Details:

Every Wednesday. Weekly Flamenco shows organised by the town hall at midday in the main square in Mijas village. The entertainers are the municipal dance group and spectators are offered a free glass of Malaga wine, courtesy of the Mijas Tourist Office. Every Saturday from September to May. Free guided walks in the beautiful rural areas of the municipality organised by the Mijas Foreigner's Department. The walks leave Mijas town hall at 10am and last for between 2 and 4 hours. The rural guides, who speak English, have designed their own routes, which are designed for all the family, including dogs on leads. Just put your name down a few days in advance at the department in Mijas town hall or phone Ext. 244, 242, 220. In Mijas the following events take place each year.

June - La noche de San Juan (the night of San Juan) falls on the 24th of June, but sometimes the celebrations go on over a few days. This celebration of the longest night and the beginning of summer is held in San Sebastian Street in the Village and there is a spectacular fireworks display at midnight.

Corpus Christi is celebrated in the traditional Spanish way, by covering the village streets in 'romero' (rosemary). The village takes on a somewhat medieval air with the wonderful smell of these herbs and the overall traditional atmosphere.

July and August - Due to the higher level of the mountain village than down on the coast, the hot summer months are a wonderful time to enjoy balmy nights at the many festivals and concerts on offer. Amongst the many things to do are;

the Flamenco Dance Festival in July, when you can see wonderful traditional dance displays by local and national groups. A special Latin American Night in August turns the village square into a South American dance festival. You can join in the music and dancing for a hot summer night. The Spanish Theatre Festival is also held in August in the Mijas open air theatre.
