Very relaxing

El Albergue is a very spacious and well maintain Villa. I would recommend to this to anyone (but I won't because I want it for myself). We have rebooked for next year and cant wait to return.

Fab villa

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a villa near to Mijas where our friends would be staying at their apartment. This villa proved to be a great find, roughly half way between Mijas and Fuengirola, 5 minute drive to Lidl to stock up on food and drink.

The villa itself is surrounded by well tended gardens, plenty of room to park. The property is well secured too.

Facilities, furnishings (indoor and out) are great. Made use of the fridge inside the bar the BBQ and of course the pool. Lovely size and ideal for cooling off and chatting to friends on the plush sun beds located around the edge. Kitchen and utility rooms well equipped.

All in all a great property which helped make our holiday a fab one.

Have recommended the villa to others since our return.

Thank you Graham and team.

A truly beautiful villa with boutique hotel feel

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the villa was superb. The description and the photos do not do it justice. The layout and facilities are faultless. It was beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean. Our favourite feature was the pool with it's 8 very comfortable sun loungers. The garden provided a welcoming and secluded oasis.

Graham and his management team were first class and so helpful.

When we could bear to drag ourselves away, we visited the white village of Mijas. It has great views, shops, restaurants, bars and donkey taxis.

We loved our holiday here and regard it as the best villa we have ever rented. For a property with all these features, it is very reasonably priced. We have already recommended it to friends.

Fabulous Villa with modern facilities.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fantastic. Located a 10 min drive from Mijas Pueblo and 10 mins from the beaches of Fuengirola and Benalmadena. Other towns are in easy reach along the costal roads.

Supermarkets and lots of restaurants are also a 10 min drive away. The inside is spacious with a very airy feel. The decor is modern, very clean with a quality finish to all rooms.

The kitchen is a good size with plenty of working space and storage, with a handy utility area at the back.

The outside space is great. We paid extra for the pool to be heated and the temperature was perfect . Our children (aged 4 and 6) loved it. There are 8 very comfortable sun beds, and 3 separate eating places , so what ever time of the day you can sit and relax in the sun.

Graham (the owner) responded quickly to any questions we had prior and during the holiday.

For us, (3 adults and 2 children - age 6 and 4) this villa and holiday was perfect.

Thank you Graham.

Perfect Bliss

  • 5 of 5

This property is a little more than just a holiday villa, well matured gardens, beautiful heated pool which is easily accessible, plenty of space to relax by the pool, so private and peaceful. The Villa itself is so well equipped, there is just nothing more you could want. Situated 5 mins or so out of town so a car is necessary, but not isolated. We spent 12 days wonderful days at Villa El Albergue two seniors with our two grandchildren, just pleased we found this lovely property. Hopefully we would love to return in the future. A big thank you to Graham and his team. Jo Mike and Children.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this villa. The owner Graham is lovely, great at communicating quickly and will do anything for you.

The villa is very clean and spacious. The pool is perfect and the option of heating it was a bonus for us as we had our 7 month old son with us.

Due to the location of a villa I would highly recommend hiring a car as there isn't much in walking distance.

The town of Mijas is lovely, typically Spanish where you can take a ride on a horse and cart, shop in the quaint little streets, eat amazing ice cream or just sit and people watch!

We loved our two week holiday!
