Amazing two week stay sad to be home 😪

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Villa Saxham and we had a fabulous stay. We had family coming and going during our time there and there was plenty room for all - at one point 8 of us! The villa is just as pics, everything you need and the pool just as inviting, not a lap pool but great for a cool off and for a mess about. Lovely and warm as well. I was concerned the villa may be shaded with all the trees but it is a sun trap from about 9.30, the sun moves round and villa is in full sun all day until sunset about 8pm the last glimmer on the pool - the sunshades are certainly welcome!

The walk to the village is def for fit people especially in the sun I did it a couple of times but my option was a jump on the bus €1.55 or a taxi about €6 and a walk back. Great spot for the bus stops two minute walk from he villa if that!

We didn't hire a car but managed getting shopping with a couple of trips to Mercadona (better than supersol), in Fuengirola and top ups at local shops in Mijas, lovely butchers and bakery.

Mijas Pueblo is as lovely, just as it was last year and we would certainly consider a return to Villa Saxham if we come back to Mijas and will recommend to friends. Many thanks Marie for letting us stay at your gorgeous villa we are very jealous 😊?

Memories are made of Mijas...

  • 5 of 5

A secluded, clean, spacious and very well appointed villa with fantastic views over Mijas Pueblo. The sun drenched patio is an ideal place to top up your tan or read that book you've meant to tackle under the shade of the pergola. The pool is a refreshing antidote to the heat of the day and the built in BBQ and outdoor dining area mean alfresco is the way to go! Mijas Pueblo is a delightful little 'white town' with plenty of excellent bars, restaurants and even a wine museum! The owners are extremely friendly, helpful and a joy to deal with. We can't wait to go back!

A home from home with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit and Casa Mijas and I can confirm it was as charming and beautiful as the first. The Villa is super comfortable and frankly I never tire of gazing at the mountain views. Can I recommend to anyone considering staying here, that you make dinner reservations after sunset, because once you've enjoyed a glass of fizz as the sun goes down you won't want to leave.

Hillside Hideaway in Mijas

  • 5 of 5

This was my fifth visit to Marie's beautiful villa in Mijas Pueblo and it was as lovely as ever. Marie takes a great deal of effort to ensure everything goes smoothly before and during our stay. The villa is very comfortable and tastefully decorated, and the furniture and facilities are constantly being replaced or refreshed so nothing looks tired.

Outside, the pool and terrace are a real sun trap, although there are plenty of seating areas with shade - handy for mealtimes or anyone who finds the Spanish sun a bit much. There's a BBQ area on which we grill steaks and enormous gambas (king prawns) washed down with very reasonable, excellent local wines and sherry!

There is a good bus service to historic and picturesque Mijas village (5 mins) or down the hill into Fuengirola and the beach (15mins). The villa has a private drive and parking for several cars too.

We will definitely be back to our home from home in Spain! Thanks Marie for another lovely holiday in your home.

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.
