Overview

About the property

Townhouse near Mijas Pueblo, Costa del Sol, Spain

A glorious light filled townhouse with superb views of the coast conveniently located between the sandy beaches and restaurants of Fuengirola, and the traditional cafes and artisan shops of the charming whitewashed village of Mijas. There is a comfortable living area, free wifi, a fully fitted kitchen, cloakroom and large balcony upstairs, and the bedrooms (both en-suite) and terrace downstairs. From the master bedroom you can walk out onto the terrace in the morning and enjoy the sunshine and the views. The master bedroom also has a large walk-in dressing area with huge mirrors and wardrobes. Golfers can choose from over 50 courses nearby while tennis players are only 5 minutes from the lovely Lew Hoad Campo de Tenis with its fully equipped gym and delightful sub-tropical gardens. There's a beautifully maintained swimming pool (heated in time for Easter) set in pretty gardens with lots of sun loungers. There is good public transport with bus stops close by.

About Jane Hampson

I live in England with my husband and our two (almost grown up) sons. I started coming out to this area of Spain over 20 years ago to play tennis at the Lew Hoad Campo de Tenis just down the road. And I've been coming here ever since. Everyone is so friendly and we've made loads of great friends and had some fabulous holidays. So seven years ago we decided buy a house here that all the family can use, especially now the boys can come out on their own.

Jane Hampson purchased this house in 2009

Why Jane Hampson chose Mijas area

This is just about my favourite part of the world. There's fabulous sunshine, even in the middle of winter when England is dull and cold. You can explore the beaches, join in the buzzing nightlife down in Fuengirola or just watch the world go by from a cafe in the little square in Mijas. The views down to the coast are amazing. That's really what sold the place to me. It feels like being in an aeroplane. And talking of planes, Malaga airport is only 25 minutes away so you can come out for a few days and not waste a moment. If, like me, you love tennis the club at Lew Hoad's will make you very welcome.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with a friend's house in the same community, (did I mention those views!) and couldn't believe it when another one came up for sale. It's so handy for the airport. It's also on the bus route between Mijas and Fuengirola so you don't need a car all the time. The pool and the gardens are immaculate and the community is gated so you feel very secure. Inside the house the marble floors and air con keep you cool and outside there's a terrace and garden with sun loungers to relax and enjoy the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a fabulous week. Lots of sun, tennis and relaxing on your lovely balcony. Can we book for next year? (Jenny and Liz- tennis players from Surrey and Shropshire)



We were very happy all week and would certainly recommend it! We really liked the leather slippers by the way, and all bought a pair in Mijas! ( Stuart and Kath from Nottinghamshire)



What wonderful views and a very well equipped and comfortable house. We had a lovely time and I would certainly recommend it to our friends. (Barbara from the Netherlands)



We were very impressed with your apartment, probably the nicest we have stayed in and the weather was perfect. (Linda and Scott from Fife)

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting in the mountains. Plenty of places to visit nearby. Would highly recommend visiting mijas pueblo just up the hill with it's white washed buildings and stunning background. Would recommend a car to really get around although there are buses to take you places and a train service. Janes house is a home from home with a well equipped kitchen and everything you need and the view from the balcony is amazing.

Fantastic Comfortable Townhouse. Cool and Airy even in August.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last week July for 7 nights. Our family were in a villa half a mile down the hill towards Fuengirola and we wanted to be nearby. This apartment suited perfectly and slept 4 people v comfortably in a double room and twin bedded room. Both rooms were en-suite, one with a shower and one full bathroom. Equipped with everything we needed and beautifully air conditioned. Jane has included a really good guide to the apartment, surrounding areas and anything else you need to know about Mijas/Fuengirola. We really enjoyed Carvajal Beach and the beach restuarants for lunch, very reasonable. The apartment isnt really within walking distance to any shops or resturants but they can be reached by car very quickly....Aldi and Lidl on the road down to Fuengirola or the BP garage just as you get into Mijas Pueblo up the hill which has all the basics. We hope to visit again next year if Jane has availability and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to access Fuengirola or Mijas Pueblo without being in the middle of the towns. Thanks very much for a lovely holiday...shame it went too quickly.

Lovely townhouse

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and secure accommodation with all mod cons including British t.v. and free wi-fi! Views from upstairs balcony to the coast are marvellous! We did not have a car but the bus stop was only about a 5 minute walk away, and public transport to both Mijas Pueblo & Fuengirola was very good. An ideal property to chill out and we would hope to return in the future. Jane was a pleasure to deal with! 😎? 😎?

Lovely winter break

  • 5 of 5

Mijas out of summer season can be just as beautiful and give opportunity to seek out interesting back street bars and restaurants. We stayed in Janes comfortable and cosy town house which had everything we needed not to mention lovely bathrooms,comfortable beds and wifi.

The view from the lounge is fabulous and uplifting on clear days we could see Africa . We had a thoroughly relaxing break and will certainly return. Thanks also to Jane who was a pleasure to deal with.

Coast/Beach:

The sandy beaches and warm seas of the Costa del Sol are within a 10 minute drive and there are 40 miles of them to explore. Sample grilled sardines freshly caught as you stroll along the sand.

Travel:

Malaga, the nearest airport, is only 20 minutes away by car. There are excellent public transport connections. The bus between Mijas and Fuengirola stops close to the community. The train from Fuengirola gets to the airport in 40 minutes and then on to Malaga where there are connections to the rapid AVE system all over Spain. It's fast, clean and efficient! Taxis down to Fuengirola are easily available.

Distances:

Mijas village is 2km. Fuengirola is 4km. Marbella, Puerto Banus and Malaga are 30 minutes by car. 2-3 hours away are Ronda, Granada, Gibraltar and the short ferry ride to Tangiers in Morocco, North Africa.

Further Details:

There really is every facility available nearby. There are banks and shops in Fuengirola, with the world famous department store El Corte Ingles on the way into town and plenty of food supermarkets to choose from. For a fabulous night out the famous 'Valparaiso' restaurant and cabaret is just across the road. Fuengirola also has many bars, clubs and restaurants. Choose from traditional Spanish tapas bars or sample the many varied and inexpensive restaurants. Watch the world go by from a pretty cafe in Mijas, as the donkeys ferry their passengers up and down the cobbled streets, or browse along the artisan leather and craft shops. There are also attractions such as the Aquapark and Zoo in Fuengirola.
