Perfect setting for a long weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Can highly recommend this villa, which exceeded my expectations. Excellent setting, private, peaceful and close to Mijas and other towns. The villa was well maintained, well equipped and very clean. It was just the break we needed and came back very relaxed. The owner was very helpful and accommodating and answered any queries within a few hours. We will definitely be going back!

Comfortable Peaceful Rest

  • 5 of 5

A lovely ,well appointed villa in a very peaceful setting but close to everything you need.

So peaceful you just sat on the patio and listened to the birdsong. everything was clean and tasteful and it was a great way of thinking you lived here full time.

We are thinking of booking again.

Beautiful, peaceful hillside villa in Mijas

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth visit to Villa Saxham and it just gets better. Marie made every effort to make our stay perfect and answered all of our questions by phone and email speedily and professionally. It now feels like a home from home.

The villa was spotless as always and items like the oven and TV have been replaced with brand new models which keeps the whole place feeling fresh and new.

The pool and outside lounge area offer stunning views of the surrounding hillsides and there are ample comfortable sun loungers (no plastic ones!!) and comfortable seats for daytime sun worshipping and evening cava sipping.

The villa is situated a 2 minute drive from Mijas Pueblo which is a beautiful and historic Spanish town with lovely bars and restaurants. The beaches of Fuengirola and Benalmadina are 10-15 minutes away and although a car makes life easy there is a good bus service which stops outside the villa.

We cannot wait to book again with Marie in 2017.

Lovely Secluded Family Villa Near Mijas Pueblo

  • 5 of 5

For anyone wishing to explore the delights of Mijas Pueblo, you could do no better than to use Villa Saxham as you base. We can give no better recommendation about Villa Saxham than to say we returned there in late August 2016 just 12 months after our first stay in August 2015. The property is spotlessly clean, well equipped, and offers very comfortable accommodation. The outside is spacious, with a variety of seating options and zones, where privacy can be sought if desired when Families are sharing.

The owner, Marie, is a very welcoming host, even if your only communication is by email. She takes great pride in the Villa and will go out of her way to ensure your stay is a memorable one.

For most people a car would be considered essential, but being set well back from the main road which links Mijas with Fuengirola, the villa is ideally situated for bus stops to make the journey either way, and indeed the transport links between Malaga airport and the Villa are good enough for those who wish to abandon the idea of a car all together.

On arrival this year we were surprised to see how much had changed in the Pueblo over our previous visits. The revamped layout of the main square and introduction of a lift really does make the pedestrian experience a very satisfying one.

The Pueblo offers a wide variety of places to eat, but without doubt the one to beat, is the Aroma Cafe, which offers a really special ambience, best enjoyed once dark.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to anyone, and will no doubt return ourselves in the near future.

Terrific place for a well-deserved break

  • 5 of 5

Very nice villa indeed and perfect for our 10 night stay. Well appointed throughout with nice big beds, three bathrooms and plenty of room for the whole family. Excellent terraces and sun-bathing areas and all-day sun. Great views - on a clear day you can even see Gibraltar! We hired a car so can't comment on public transport - but it seems that a regular bus route runs close by with bus stop nearby to villa. Useful petrol station shop 500m up the road for any last minute items you need. We regularly went to Fuengirola/Marbella and found this to be a really good central location from which to explore. All in all it ticked every box - hence the 5 star rating. Hope to go back again.

Lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Saxham, it was definitely a home from home as soon as you walked in, with comfortable furnishings, lots of outdoor space, and refreshing pool for the hot days and playtime with the little ones. The views from the terrace are magnificent both ends of the day. With a bus stop going both ways, either to the wonderful white village of Mijas or to the coast at Fuengerola both a short journey away it is ideally situated even without a car. Marie is a wonderful owner who really cares that you have a great holiday, she couldn't have been more helpful or efficient - thank you so much.

From the Owner

We chose Mijas for the typical Spanish feel of the village and surrounding area. Plenty of great golf courses also played a part in the decision.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 24 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Mijas village at 1.5 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Mijas Golf course at 8 Kilometres Nearest Train : Fuengirola at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Mijas at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Molina de Cura at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Fuengirola at 9 Kilometres Car: recommended


Fuengirola and its beach is roughly 2 miles away


Malaga airport is approx 15 minutes drive.

There is a bus that goes from the airport port to Fuengirola and then there is a bus that will take you past the villa.


Fuengirola is the nearest beach. The village (Mijas Pueblo) is roughly 1 mile away.

Marbella and Puerto Banus is appox 30 minutes drive.

The village of Mijas is beautiful...little white houses lined with pretty blue flower pots of geraniums.

Plenty of restaurants and bars...shops and little places of interest.

Of course the famous donkeys should have a mention as they are such a big part of Mijas pueblo.

Very child friendly and children enjoy Mijas pueblo as much as adults.

There is an open air theatre at the top of the hill and lots going on in the summer.

There are plenty of good Golf courses in the area..the nearest is a 5 minute drive away.

There are some very family orientated beaches in the area.

`There is a large shopping centre down in Mijas costa with a good selection of quality shops.

Al Hambra is reachable but you need to book before your holiday as it is very popular and always busy.

Benalmadina is 10 minutes drive away and has a zoo plus cable car..also an amusement park that we like to visit at night as it is cooler.

Malaga has a lovely port and it is lovely to sit by the sea and watch the boats come and go over a meal.
