About Wendy Hughes

Clive and Wendy live in Bristol in the UK and have just purchased their second property in Spain. We fell in love with La Cala whilst holidaying in Spain and bought our first apartment in Las Mimosas in 2003. We have recently acquired a lovely villa and hope to spend more of the winter months here. We spend several weeks of the year in La Cala and rent out the property for the rest of the time. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Wendy Hughes purchased this villa in 2013

Why Wendy Hughes chose Mijas area

We have been coming to La Cala for ten years now and love the location. This villa has the advantage of being central, very close to the beach and offers more space than our first apartment. The busy little town of La Cala is a short level walk of about five minutes, providing many restaurants and bars, a park, shops and a market. It has one of the best beaches on the coastline and is about 20 minutes drive from Malaga and Marbella.

What makes this villa unique

The location is perfect - close to the town and the beach. The villa itself is very spacious and with it's many terraces, you have the opportunity to be in the sun or shade as you prefer at any time of day. With a private pool and garden, what more could you ask for!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your fabulous villa. We have had an absolutely amazing holiday.

Your villa is perfectly located for a great family holiday and everyone was 'blown away' with your 'home from home'. The only down side for us is that we would like even more time here! Here's to next year.

Ground floor front covered terrace with relaxing sofa and chairs. Very sunny first floor front terrace leading off large landing. Rear first floor terrace accessed from bedroom 2. Large private pool at rear with sun loungers and relaxing furniture. Rear covered terrace adjoining the kitchen and overlooking pool and rear garden with outdoor table and chairs. Very efficient coal BBQ at rear of villa. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are included. Please do not take the white towels outside the villa. A few beach towels are available and if used should be left clean for next guests. Cleaning and towel/linen change can be organised during your stay for an extra charge. Other: Large landing area with sofa and chairs leading onto front terrace. Internal staircase leading down to newly converted games room with snooker table and table tennis table. Also has a small kitchen area and toilet / shower room, sofa-beds and futons. It is one of very few villas in La Cala that is on the beach side of the main road. Whether you prefer sitting round a private pool, going to the beach or visiting local bars and restaurants - it is the perfect location.

Excellent holiday in the heart of La Cala

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second holiday in Villa Alegria. The villa is in a superb location , minutes from the beach, local park, shops bars and restaurants. It is very well maintained with air conditioning in all bedrooms, a lovely pool and spacious gardens, and plenty of space both inside and outside the villa. The booking process was very easy, both Wendy in U.K. and Wendy in La Cala are extremely friendly and helpful. We have already booked for next year- much to the delight of our grandchildren!!

Villa Alegria La Cala de Mijas

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday at the Villa Alegria. Its very well equipped and all four bedrooms have air conditioning units and ceiling fans which was great as we were there during a heatwave.

The pool was a real sun trap(it got really hot there as there was no breeze) but also had shaded areas when it did get too hot.The pool though its not heated was warm enough not to shock you as you entered as it gets the sun all day.

BBQ area which we did not use, lovely big table on the patio overlooking the pool for meals,plenty of crockery and cooking equipment.Games room in the basement.

Sun loungers and umbrellas provided.

Couple of supermarkets nearby, a nice local bakery cum cafe also nearby, and the beach is a two minute walk away.Lots of restaurants in the village catering for all tastes. Nice seafront walk with beach bars.

Villa owners very helpful and gave us lots of information pre booking and all communication with them was excellent.

The reason I dont give it five stars is that the furnishings are a bit tired looking but that said

its all perfectly comfortable and most of the holiday was spent outdoors by the pool or sitting at the table overlooking the pool.

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Alegria and would happily go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review and very happy to hear that you enjoyed your holiday at our villa. We try to make improvements to the villa each year and your comments about the furnishings have been noted. Having said that, our most regular clientele include young families - so we have to go for 'robust' items rather than style! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of friends and family during May half term 2017. Everything about this villa was fantastic. The space, the pool, the cleanliness and the location. Wendy and Clive thought of everything, providing us with a home from home experience. The meet and greet lady Wendy contacted us on arrival (as we flew in very late) to ensure everything was to our satisfaction.

The villa is located in a quiet road, just off the beach yet close to all the amenities, including Lidl. It had air conditioning in all the bedrooms which was a godsend after a day sat at the pool. Having 7 children of a young age in the group, security was also very important -the villa was completely enclosed with a walled garden and double locking gates and doors. It is a beautiful villa and location. Thank you very much Wendy and Clive for allowing us to stay your beautiful home! We would definitely stay again and are already saving for next year!! Kelly, Lisa, Becci and Joanna

Relaxation personified

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July having been recommended to stay in la Cala de mijas by our friends.

Villa Alegria was an obvious decision - reasonably priced, next to the beach, and everything you could ask for in a family villa.

We were not disappointed. The villa is in a stunning setting in the thick

Of the action, but equally very quiet and secluded. We loved the pool and relaxing on the deck.

The bedrooms are modern with en suite bathrooms and air conditioning. Within equal distance of the beach is the park, restaurants a shop and a bakery which was lovely.

Would fully recommend

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa inside and out!

Great to all have our own bathrooms and plenty of space for myself and my relatives.

Aircon being introduced in the bedrooms which will be a big plus to the villa.

Location in La Cala was perfect, such a delightful place, everything within easy walking distance and all on the flat, no car needed and no hills to climb!

Buses easy to get to Fuengirola, Mijas pueblo and Marbella. Market twice a week in La Cala.

The beach was lovely, new promenade and plenty of delicious Chiringuitos to choose from.

Excellent communication from the owners throughout the booking process and during our stay.

Would highly recommend to anyone!

Hope to be back again soon!

Natalie.
