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 😊?

Lovely, comfortable spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

I had a four night stay with four friends at this villa which we thoroughly enjoyed and the amenities were great in the accommodation.

It was clean, tidy and had all we needed for our break.

The only negative was it was difficult for taxis to drop us off and collect us as the villa was on an extremely busy road and on a sharp bend.

Also, it was a very hilly walk into the village which should've been made clear on the website.

Owner's Response: Thankyou so much for your review...feed back is very important to us. I am very pleased that you had a lovely holiday. So sorry that you struggled to get taxis to collect and drop off...I should have told you to meet taxis across the road...because a lot of properties in Spain are not easily accessible . Regarding the hill...once again I can only apologise for not making you aware that the village is up hill all the way. Kind regards, Marie.

Beautiful Villa Saxham

  • 5 of 5

I had been recommended this Beautiful villa from a friend of mine and it certainly lived up to my expectations. I travelled here with 3 friends of mine and we had a wonderful holiday.

The panoramic views from the terrace are absolutely stunning. We spent days laying on the terrace and it was so peaceful and relaxing.

The villa inside is well maintained, very clean and provided us with all we needed.

We loved travelling up to the old town, which offers a real slice of traditional spain. There are Gorgeous restaurants and bars and its so easy to get to via bus.

Marie made everything so easy for us and we can't thank her enough.

We will certainly be back!

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.

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.
