About Marie Pulford

We have had the property for 12 years.

Marie Pulford purchased this villa in 2003

Why Marie Pulford chose Mijas area

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.

What makes this villa unique

Relaxing and very secluded. Private pool and terrace.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

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.

Perfect family villa.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is just minutes from the lovely mountain top town of Mijas. Easy to find with the instructions given to us by the owner, approximately 30mins from Malaga, drove straight to it.

A nice villa with perfect accommodation for eight people, all linen provided including beach towels which we have never had at other villas we have rented !

Great sun terrace for outdoor living, with pool and BBQ on the same level, all enclosed by railings as the villa has an elevated view (safe for small children).

The best thing we think, is the location, only 5 mins from the town of Mijas. fantastic views, history and great restaurants, a real gem for this part of Spain.

We think it represented good value for money.

Things to do:

Chocolate factory in Mijas, great for kids.

Karting on the roof of the Miramar shopping centre.

Market at Calahonda on Wednesdays.

Plenty of free historic things to see in Mijas, churches, museums etc.

All in all a great holiday for me and my partner, two kids and my parents.

Thanks Ben

Beautiful villa in the amazing Mijas village

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at Villa Saxham and enjoyed it even better this time. The villa is well situated within 15 min walking distance to Mijas village. The villa is spacious ideal if taking extended family or friends, outdoor is my favourite space, fantastic comfy seating area with optional sun shade perfect for reading and wine drinking! The pool is close by so you can see kids swimming and all be together. The front of the villa has a large drive area secured with iron gates, so plenty of parking. Mijas village is full of character and superb restaurants.

We will definitely be back!
