About Malcolm Guy

We live just outside Chichester, UK and are both keen cyclists, spending weekends cycling the South Downs with local clubs. We have owned the apartment in Spain since 2004 and love escaping the British winters to enjoy some sun, relax and cycle the stunning routes through Andalucia.

Malcolm Guy purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Malcolm Guy chose Alhaurín el Grande

This is an ideal place to relax, quiet and with beautiful views and stunning scenery. It has something for all the family. Great weather, amazing all-year cycling, beaches, restaurants, golf, culture and authentic Spanish night life. It is also close to the historic towns of Seville, Cordoba and Granada.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is ideal for the beach which is only 15 mins away, but also within a two hour drive of Seville, Cordoba and Grenada and the incredible Alhambra Palace. But mostly we enjoy relaxing by the pool, on the beach or soaking up the evening sun with a glass of wine and a BBQ on the apartment's balcony. For the more energetic there are picturesque walks, 40 golf courses, some classic on road and off road cycle routes, horse riding and tennis.

The Apartment has everything you will need to make you feel at home, including satellite TV, Wi Fi, DVD and a fully fitted kitchen. Towels and bedding are also provided. You will need a car and these can be hired relatively cheaply from the airport.

lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

the apartment was lovely works perfect for family or group of 4+ parking space next to block, we had unfortunately the coldest night ever in march which meant having heating on which was fine, plenty of hot water for showers and all the bits you need in the kitchen for cooking, place is spotless, swimming pool great, golf course is probably the most challenging course with fantastic views. car is needed for most things but short drive away is a BP garage sells everything,

worth having local taxi number as bars are a good walk away but possible.

nearby bar The boma food and drink, los candiles restaurant steak house fantastic food. there is also a club house that does food and drink on the complex.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 week in the apartment cycling through orange and olive groves, golfing, hiking, and touring around. The apartment is good-sized, very comfortable, clean and well outfitted. We cooked often in the fully equipped kitchen with large fridge and freezer. The dining terrace is well positioned for sunny leisurely breakfasts with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. The roof terrace is large and very private. The communal grounds and pool are very nice, clean and well taken care of. The location of the apartment is for those looking for a quieter location within a short drive to busier more touristy costal areas. The closest town to the apartment, Alhaurin el grande, is a working town offering good authentic restaurants and small food shops. The owner, Malcolm, was very helpful in providing us with road biking routes and places and restaurants to visit. Malcolm's bike cage in the underground parking garage was very convient for storing our bikes. We highly recommend this apartment for a get away.

Modern, spacious, well equipped, comfortable with excellent views and a scenic swimming pool.

  • 5 of 5

This was my third visit to the apartment and Sandra's first. My impression of the surrounding Andalucian countryside, cultural hot- spots and authentic food only grows with each visit (and that's without mentioning the miles of sandy beaches and warm sea). We cycled in the mountains for several days of our stay and the scenery is varied with olive groves, almond and orange trees in the lower slopes and rugged mountain tops. The Spanish roads are generally very smooth and the drivers treat cyclist with more respect than I've ever experienced in many years of continental cycling. We had some wonderful impromptu food when we stopped in small villages which way exceeded our expectations. Look out for the lovely view from the square at Casarabonella and the houses built into the limestone in Setenil. The walk at Camino Del Ray has rightly won some tourism awards for it's vertiginous walkway clinging to the cliffs of the gorge, giving access to sights that most of us would never get to see. Cordoba is likewise a beautiful City - try the Turkish baths for a sense of what it might have been like as a Roman seeking some serious RnR. Overall a really great holiday location either for day trips or staying put by the pool with easy access to Deja and Marbella.... We're very much looking forward to our next trip!

Impressive Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a very good location giving easy access to the mountains as well as the coast. The roof terrace with its stunning mountain views is the perfect place to enjoy a meal in the glorious sunshine. There is a nice pool with beautiful gardens to enjoy playing and relaxing. Had a great stay and would highly recommend it.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was really lovely; clean, tidy and really well-furnished. The balcony and rooftop terrace were perfect for mealtimes, with fantastic views. It was also really nice being able to wander down to the pool during the day/evening. Would definitely recommend hiring a car for easier access to the local towns and beaches as well as day trips further afield. The apartment had a great collection of tourist leaflets and maps which came in very handy. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone!

A fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the apartment with 3 friends all cyclists - the apartment is fabulous, very high standard of fixtures and fittings - the block is very clean and well serviced with a great secure car park. the swimming pool and area is also very good. This area is great for cycling close to mountains and the beaches (and golf of course if you're interested).
