Country House/Villa In Tranquil Setting With Exceptionally Large Private Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Holiday Home in La Alqueria, Nr. Alhaurin, Costa del Sol - Spacious And Totally Secluded With Spectacular Mountain Views

At the end of a long private drive, a spacious country house offering very comfortable accommodation. Relax in the gardens, swim in the large pool, enjoy an evening barbecue, read undisturbed under an ancient olive tree or walk along the grounds picking fresh produce such as oranges, lemons, grapes, pomegranates, figs, or avocados; and you will find yourself unwinding completely in this authentic Andalucian finca.

Situated in an idyllic rural setting the property is nestled in the fertile Gualalhorce valley, and the surrounding lush green hills create a magical backdrop that could only be Spain. You will enjoy complete privacy and yet it is the ideal base for taking part in a huge variety of nearby activities such as golf, horse-riding, tennis, trekking, paddle tennis, clay pigeon shooting, quad bikes, motorbike enduro racing, coarse fishing, day tips to Tangiers in Morocco, bullfighting, and beach sports - and exploring local markets, fiestas, 'ventas', restaurants & bars.

About the Owner

We love our finca and are really delighted it gives so much pleasure to others when we are not able to enjoy it ourselves.

We chose it after many years of searching because it is the most calming, relaxing, and beautiful place we could find, because the views of the gentle valley and surrounding mountains is fantastic, and because we find the 100 olive trees and the 250 orange, tangerine, avocado trees an incredible boon.

And whilst we are there we are totally secluded and away form other tourists, yet we are 20-25 minutes from an international airport and 5 minutes from a beautifully kept typical Spanish town.

A Sensational Villa

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I were lucky enough to stay for a week over the summer and what a fantastic week it was. This stunning villa was situated in an incredible setting, surrounded by acres of wonderful orange and lemon groves, with the backdrop of the beautiful rolling hillside in the distance.

The Villa was only a short drive from the airport which was such a blessing once we stepped out into the 35 degree heat. Even closer still was the charming local town, offering a wide range of traditional Spanish restaurants and fabulous al fresco dining. To be honest, the villa was so nice that we rarely left and didn’t get much chance to explore the town.

The villa itself offered a fantastic range of spacious accommodation with everything you could possibly need and it was all immaculately kept. The wonderful terraces to both the front and rear of the Villa provided us with ample space for barbequing, dining and entertaining or the there was always one of the of the various shaded snugs for us to quietly relax and enjoy a book.

The beautifully kept grounds provided acres of fantastic outdoor space, where we were able to stroll through the picturesque groves picking oranges, lemons, figs and almonds to go with whatever feast we were cooking up that evening. The sizeable front lawn which is enclosed by tasteful landscaping, provided a fantastic space for garden games including croquet and table tennis, all of which were provided.

…..and then there’s the pool! An immaculately presented crystal clear pool, overlooked by a stunning gazebo to provide some cover from the afternoon sun. The salt filtration pool allows you to swim all holiday without having to endure those painful chlorine eyes and the temperature was perfect. We spent much of our holiday here!

It is all too clear that the owners of the Villa make exceptional effort in creating a paradise for all that stay and they obviously have their guests best interests at the very front of their minds. As the reviews on the website are of such high quality, we had a good idea about what to expect. However, it is fair to say the we were totally blown away and that every single part of the holiday exceeded our expectations.

We would and have recommended this to so many people already and our only regret is that we didn’t stay for longer. Thank so very much for providing us with such a fantastic holiday!

An amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was even better than we expected, although the listings and photographs are clear, you have to visit it to experience it.

The villa is spacious and comfortable, everything that you need is provided. It is well maintained and very clean.

The setting is beautiful, surrounded by orange, lemon and almond trees, all of which we sampled….an amazing juicer available to use, fresh orange juice for breakfast on the terrace…….. it also went well with vodka in the evening. Beyond the grounds you are surrounded by beautiful views of the mountains on either side.

The pool was a really good size, also well maintained and surrounded with plenty of comfortable loungers.

I particularly enjoyed the grounds. Well thought out planting and landscaping in the large area from the villa to the pool. Beyond this you are surrounded by a large plot where all the fruit trees grow.

Excellent access to the airport and local town which has everything you need. We ate out many times, restaurants recommend by the owner, these did not disappoint..

I would recommend this to anyone with no reservations.

Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location and the most tranquil setting.

The house comfortably accommodates 8 and is suited to families, friends reunions, golfing holidays etc., beautiful pool and garden plus acres of orange groves and olive trees.

Only 25 minutes from Malaga airport and you are located in the heart of the countryside with mountain views. Just ten minutes drive to Alhurin, where you can find numerous good value quality restaurants and very good shopping.

This location offers everything from seclusion to easy access to busy local towns with plenty of activities from fiestas, golf and beaches.

Very highly recommended. Good quality accommodation.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We jokingly called the property South Fork (from Dallas) prior to arrival...it wasn't far from it! so well maintained, beautiful gardens, flowers, fruit, olives in abundance. Gorgeous home with character, comfort, everything you could possibly need, including the all important drinks fridge. Very comfortable sunbeds (8 of them), day bed, large pool, table tennis, ample rattan furniture, plenty of dining areas. Honestly faultless.

Fabulous location (follow the directions carefully, as its well hidden), only 10 mins drive or 1.5 hour walk, into Alhaurin El Grande with restaurants in abundance, our favourite being the amazing Santiagos Kitchen. Just 35 minutes to Los Alamos beach or Malaga (with Malagueta beach).

Our only regret, we didn't stay there long enough!

Thank you.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Second time here at this beautifully kept villa and its grounds. Had a another great two week vacation with my family. What i love most is the views of the surrounding mountains which you can see clearly from all sides of the property, particularly from the pool and the large back porch area where we bbq'd and dined most nights. We made full use of produce growing on the property from cherry tomatoes, herbs,(mint, oregano, rosemary and thyme) chillies, and citrus (for our mojitos, and gin and tonics! ). Lots of lovely places to visit all with a relatively short driving distance. A very peaceful place to be, if you dont mind the odd dog barking, the rattle of goats bells, the occasional baying of a donkey and the clip clop of horses on the dirt tracks surrounding the villa. I am very fortunate to live in Bermuda but this place is, for me, certainly another 'paradise'. The owners are clearly without doubt very caring about their villa and look after it with a passion for their guests to enjoy to and to enjoy without a care in the world!
