About the Owner

Hi, I'm Ian, the owner of Las Golondrinas.

I started off my working career as a development engineer. After 8 years I thought I would try construction. This paid off for me as I enjoyed work outside and the physical side of things. I also enjoyed working for the public. Our sons left home and we decided to change our way of life and looked at properties in the lower half of England's countryside, we came to Spain to visit our eldest son Barry and he took us to meet some of his friends in the Malaga countryside and we fell in love with the place, we made a quick decision and started looking for land and buildings in the Mountains, we went home and sold our house 14yrs ago, and we have never looked back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great experience. Enjoyed every second of it. The nature and the views are incredible! Malaga is amazing. Comfort we will return next year. Lots of love Bianca, Barry and friends in April 2010



"We would like to thank you deeply for your home. It was an incredibly fun journey. Especially the terrace, is like a fairytale. Thanks for all you've done." Lars and the family in May 2010.



"We never expected this. The pictures don't do it justice. Fully rejuvenated after a week on the terrace watching the ships entering and leaving the port. Thank you, absolutely brilliant!" Martin and his family, December 2009

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 10 but the house can accommodate 13-14 people and had everything you needed. The BBQ was just what we needed to eat at nights but there are local restaurants about 10 mins away which accommodate your every needs. The different spots to relax in the garden are fantastic and from the hammock the views of the mountains are spectacular. Malaga is only a 30 min drive away and the views from the house especially at night are amazing. Ian & Sally are the perfect hosts and took us shopping and helped with all our needs even cooking for us some of their favourite recipes. Their extended family of animals make the holiday so different and we loved the goats cheese from Paco the goat herder and thanks Sally for all the eggs!!

There are even games in the garden for all ages to have fun with!! Thanks Sally & Ian for a wonderful holiday! We will definitely be returning to this haven of tranquility!!

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Sally and Ian's house is very different. It is very Spanish and in a beautiful location. The views of the coast and Malaga are absolutely stunning. The local area is very picturesque and there are interesting places to visit. If you like walking you will love it.

Sally and Ian make the most delightful hosts and I can guarantee you will have great fun with them.

Los Golindrinos

  • 5 of 5

Simply one of the best Holidays I've had for years and one of the most stunning settings you could wish for.From the minute we arrived and were met by Ian and Sal we knew that we'd struck Gold.

The house has everything you need for a relaxing and peaceful time but you can be down on the coast and amongst the restaurants and bars in 30 minutes or less.

When we first arrived we had all sorts of excursions planned but after a couple of days we pretty much decided we had everything we needed right there and proceeded to chill like never before.

Ian and Sal know everything there is to know about this Idilic mountain setting and can point you in the direction of whatever you may require.The majority of which is produced locally.

The Sunsets are mind blowing and cool mountain breezes make the evening temperature perfect after a long hot day.

This place is MAGIC and we've already booked for next year.

Can't wait.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property and loved it. A romantic getaway with beautiful views of the mountains and plenty of space. The host was gracious enough to bring up their homade cheeses and we even had the opportunity to milk the goats. Great stay highly recommend.

wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Las Golondrinas. The house is lovely, clean and comfortable; we had all what we needed, including a romantic view! It is near Malaga, so we could enjoy day trips in the region. Some days we just relaxed in the house, swimming in the pool, walking in the sourranding area and cooking on the grill in the court yard. Ian and Sally are fantastic people and gave us the opportunity to taste some natural traditional food. I personally suggest the goat cheese, I'm fond of it! I even learned to make it, all passages, from milking the goat to..eating my cheese! It tastes best!I will remind this experience in Las Golondrinas for ever

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

There is a small organic farm close by where you can purchase fresh eggs, seasonal veg and goats cheese, we particularly recommend the pork. Farm visits and local excursions can be arranged upon request. Should you be interested in a more hands-on experience and would like to get involved in the daily running of the farm (for example, feeding the animals, fruit-picking etc.) you would be more than welcome. At a later date we are hoping to run a globe making school. An example of one of our globes is on display in the house.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is 15 km away in Malaga. Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Calahonda and Marbella are west of Malaga and also has two aquaparks with in. There are more covey beaches east of Malaga in Torre del Mar, Torrox Costa and Nerja.

Travel:

Malaga airport is only 25km away. Malaga port is 18km away. A car is essential. A map and directions to the property will be supplied. We can also meet you at the airport and escort you to the property.

Distances:

The property is located 18km from Malaga, which is a beautiful city famous for its many museums and art galleries, the ultimate being the birth place of Picasso and his museum close by. The house is also a very good base for daily excursions, as you can join the A7, E15, A45, and N340 coastal road within 15 minutes and from there continue onto Granada, Alhambra (1 hour 30 mins drive), Marbella and Puerto Banus (1 hour), Torremolinos and Waterworld (40 mins), and much more within easy reach.

Further Details:

Las Golondrinas is perfectly situated to offer easy access to the rich bustling culture of Malaga City, including: Pablo Picasso Museum - situated close to the site of Picasso's birthplace, featuring many great works by the artist. La Malagueta - the Malaga Bull Ring and associated museum. La Alcazaba - an immense 11th century Moorish military fortress built on the remains of a Roman fortress. Kelipe Centro de Arte Flamenco - intimate show of traditional Flamenco by husband and wife.Jardin Botanical, La Concepcion - the Historic Botanical Gardens of Malaga just down at the foot of the mountains 15mins . Feria de Malaga - Malaga's 9 day festival at the start of August. It begins with a great firework display at midnight on Friday, and from then on the city is filled with music and dancing, fun fairs and nightly concerts.

Ciudad Jardin the town passed as you drive in to Malaga has every thing you would need ,..chemists , internet cafe, the Mercadona supermarket , chinese and moroccan shops great for souveniers
