Tranquil Location. Views to Mountains and Sea from Large Balcony. Private Pool.



Updated: 22-Aug-2016
Spacoious villa with own pool. Sleeps 8. Set in extensive grounds with magnificent views in 3 directions. 15 minute walk to restaurants and shop.

Architect designed detached villa built in 2002 as a holiday home for 4 friends and wives in a beautiful valley within walking distance of the village of La Alqueria with shop, bar and restaurant, and close to the very Spanish towns of Alhaurin de la Torre and Alhaurin el Grande. Extensive grounds and large leisure areas. The villa has no immediate neighbours and the setting is both natural and tranquil with olive and carob trees, a natural rockery and the smell of wild lavender. Although close to the coast and the airport, you are more likely to hear goat bells than aircraft noise. Nearest golf course is 3 minutes drive, with many more nearby. Ronda, with the oldest bull ring in Spain and its famous gorge is only one hour away, and Cordoba (World Heritage Site), Seville and Granada can be reached in 2 hours by car or by train from Malaga Mainline Station with a local connection from Plaza Mayor (15 mins. drive) which has ample parking, a major shopping complex, cinema and bowling.

From the Owner

The villa site was bought in 2002 because of being just the right distance from the airport (25 minutes) to make frequent visits easy, but to have no problems with aircraft noise. Similarly with traffic; the resorts of the Costa del Sol are easily reached in 30 minutes, but we are remote from any traffic noise. Its situation means the villa is private, and has the most stupendous views across the valley. However, there are 2 restaurants, a bar and a shop within walking distance, as well as one of the prime golf courses in the area (especially for Colin!) The villa is the perfect place for chilling out, but is also within easy reach of the Costa del Sol resorts and the great cities of Andalucia if a little more excitement is required.
