About Malcolm Hamilton

"Casa de la Buena Vista" was my home from 2007 until 2011 , however business required I move back to the Uk hence the Villa being now available for rent,

I now maintain the Villa on my frequent trips to Spain and make sure it is prepared correctly for the Holiday Guests.

The Villa is registered as a "Viviende Rural" with the Junta de Andalucia which means that the very high standards required by the Andalucian authorities are rigorously maintained and checked.

Malcolm

Malcolm Hamilton purchased this villa in 2007

Why Malcolm Hamilton chose Malaga area (Costa del Sol)

I purchased this property mainly because of it's spectacular position and beautiful views of "El Torcal" mountain and the surrounding countryside, I then spent 2 years refurbishing the Villa and installing a lovely swimming pool on the rear Terrace.

What makes this villa unique

Tranquility and total privacy with spectacular far reaching mountain views are all part of the reason to stay at "Casa de la Buena Vista"

Retreat from the hectic pace of your business life and just relax , the only neighbours are the horses and the eagles soaring overhead.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My Husband and I stayed at "Casa de la Buena Vista" in June 2016, the views were spectacular and the hilltop position gave the Villa a lovely feel, we enjoyed the local Restaurant and were always made to feel very welcome by Antonio the owner.

For us the Villa was paradise no noise, just lovely weather and a refreshing pool to cool off in whilst enjoying the views.



Malcolm the owner was extremely helpful and supplied our shopping in advance of our arrival. Everything was perfect , can't wait to go again.,

Rural Idyll

  • 5 of 5

If you're done with coastal holidays involving busy apartment blocks, and a shared pool. If you're weary of seeing towels appearing on sunbeds from 6am which shout "I'm reserved" and you're tired of crowded streets and the hard sell of tacky tourist trinkets...then may I suggest rural Andalucia. The views from this villa are truly spectacular. Here, there is privacy, peace and quiet....and, of course a pool of your own! My family and I have just spent a wonderful two weeks here and Malcolm (the owner) could not have been more helpful. You'll need a car, but within a few minutes drive from this villa you'll reach the little hamlet of Pastelero with its two excellent bars for drinks, tapas and meals at just a fraction of the price that you'd pay in a typical tourist resort. Within easy driving distance there are some beautiful places to explore including El Chorro, with its pine-clad mountains and turquoise lakes and El Torcal Park with its striking limestone rock formations. There are various whitewashed villages and towns and of course you can also drive down to Malaga and the coast within 40 minutes or so, or go north to the historic city of Antequera with its beautiful ancient churches and excavated roman baths. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa de la Buena Vista. Many thanks Malcolm!

Stunning views together with peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at this lovely villa. It's quite a rural location so fantastic if you want to get away from the rat race and avoid the typical commercial areas of the costa, lots of peace and quiet, fantastic views and scenery. It's at the heart of real Spanish culture ( not a McDonalds in sight!), there's a lovely restaurant ( antonios) about a 15 minute drive, very welcoming and fantastic food. The pool area at the villa was lovely and the outside shaded areas and bar area were super comfortable. I had my 2 teenage boys with me and wasn't sure if there was enough for them to do but between the pool, cable tv, Wi-Fi, walking and exploring there was plenty! Malcolm the owner could not have been more accomodating and the welcome pack was much appreciated, we'll definitely be back!

A Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We spent an idyllic week in this lovely villa. Set on top of a hill side the villa must have the best views in Spain. The outside space is fantastic: great pool; a bar area; complete privacy and numerous areas to relax.

Inside the villa is well equipped with satellite tv, aircon and wifi. The owner, Malcolm, left the best welcome pack we have ever had.

A magical place, we will be back
