About Jane

Previous renter disappointed with the standard of properties that I have rented in the past! I have worked hard to provide a very high standard of furnishing and just about anything you would need for a five star getaway in our villa in Mijas!

I'm totally committed to you having a wonderful holiday and work on progressive and immediate improvement based on any comments that past renters may have.

Jane purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jane chose Mijas area

Amazing location and a stunning white Andalusian village on the doorstep - a part of the real Spain with some delightful mountain restaurants!

Far enough away from the ‘full English’ Spain but close enough for the occasional brash ‘Spain-innit’ experience should you wish it (doubtful!!)!

What makes this villa unique

Ultimate 5 star secluded opulence.

Guestbook comments from the owner


The Tripadvisor pictures of Viila do not do it justice. It was the housing high light of our 6 weeks in Spain with extraordinary views high on the side of the coastal mountain. Our only regret is that we should have stayed 2 wks instead of one. Jane & Graham cover all the bases with their very complete info on all working things in the Villa. None of the info on this Villa is an exageration. If there is a slight negative it might be mastering the roads to the Villa but the directions proved very accurate. If you are looking for a beautiful view, comfortable beds and furniture, a stones throw from a fun Whitewashed Village and a place you will remember, give this Villa a real good look.

Love villa, amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Torcal. The villa is very well equipped, clean and the furniture extremely comfortable. It's position on the Urbanisation Mijas La Nueva is excellent and the layout of the urbanisation is beautiful, more like a typical white pueblo. The pool is only a short walk away from the villa. It is extremely peaceful on the lovely terrace and the views are amazing. Lovely to be able to see Gibraltar and the Atlas mountains and the lights of Fuengirola in the evenings. There is even a sea view from the sofa! Mijas has something to offer for everyone. Open air concerts in the auditorium, many lovely restaurants and interesting shops. Walking in the Mijas mountains and lots of good places to visit a short drive away.

Jane and Graham are the best hosts we have ever experienced and we have spent many holidays in apartments and villas on the Costa del Sol. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done to make your stay a pleasurable one. Would certainly recommend this villa to anyone.

We really enjoyed our stay in mijas. Their house is located high on the hill with a beautiful view. It is only a 5 minute drive to the center of town with many restaurants and shops to choose from.

Graham was a gracious host and easy to reach, also Nadine the local contact.

The house has everything you need and more. There is a binder with all the info you need for the house and surrounding area.

Well worth the trip.

Very enjoyable stay. Clean, lovely views, full instructions for the appliances - would recommend

  • 4 of 5

As mentioned above, very enjoyable and would stay again. You obviously need a car and Mijas is a little to far to walk in the heat, but you should know that when you book. The villa itself had all you need, was well maintained and clean. Lovely views on an evening. Pool is close by and is again clean and safe.

A lovely villa with everything you could possibly need on hand.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in a lovely location on the very edge of the urbanisation at the top of the hill. A little daunting on our first walk to Mijas as we are two couples in our late 50s and early 60s but we soon got the hang of it and were pretty pleased with ourselves every time we made the walk in record time. We walked there and back on a couple of occasions during the day and on a night we walked there and got a taxi back for 8 euros. There are Two really nice bars 10 - 15 minutes away so you didn't need to walk in to the village every night.

The villa itself was perfect with absolutely everything that you could think of and all mod cons - including BBC on TV - perfect to watch the start of the olympics. They had really thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We also appreciated the welcome bottle of champagne which was a lovely thought.

The garden space was good too with a big table and lovely comfy chairs with a view over the whole of the area which was stunning and ideal for a glass of wine when the sun went down. The BBQ worked well and made a pleasant change from dining out. The pool was just a few minutes away as well.

The owners of the villa - Graham and Jane - were so helpful and really were prepared to help with everything over and above what you would normally expect.

I could not recommend this villa highly enough.

Owner's Response: Caroline, Thank you so much for your kind words and we're so pleased that you had a great holiday and found the villa had absolutely everything you needed! The walk into town is certainly a very scenic replacement for 30 minutes in the Gym and great that you were able to beat your previous time on each occasion! Please come back in Winter (the cheap season!) and enjoy some golf and evenings around the lovely log fire! Very Best Regards Graham & Jane

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. The owners have ensured that it is a 'home from home'. Clean, immaculately presented and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Stunning views and an amazing pool only a 2 minute walk away, that we had to ourselves 90% of the time. I really hope we can go back at some point. Highly recommend this beautiful place to stay - hire a car and you have so many places to visit on the Costa del Sol too.

Lovely relaxing villa

Another fabulous stay at this lovely, peaceful villa. Amazing sea views in a relaxing setting, with easy access to quaint Mijas pueblo and the coast.

Great attention to detail: the villa had everything we could possibly need and the owners were super-helpful.

Highly recommended!
