About the Owner

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!

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

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!

This villa is fantastic . We stayed for a week with our four kids . Partners and wife's . And two small grandsons . Our age Range was from 4 months to 47 years, and I can say this place suited everyone. There was plenty space and having the 5 bathrooms was a fantastic bonus as we all had our own private space and didn't feel we were living on top off each other , this couple have thought off everything to make your stay perfect and we can't thank them enough for sharing there house with us . You just can't beat this place for location or price . The bars and restaurants are within a two min walk, and my grandson loved the large play park that's practically on the doorstep as well as the beach. We as a family hope to return again soon.

Fabulous Villa...an excellent find!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this Villa for two weeks and it lived up to our expectations and more! Knowing La Cala very well, but not having visited for a few years, we wanted somewhere that accommodated our family of older children and their partners, ensuring everyone had their own space and privacy. This property was an excellent find and well maintained and refurbished throughout. The rear outside space was perfect for swimming, barbecuing, eating and drinking and was where we spent much of our time in the evenings. Travelling with our young granddaughter, the lovely gardens gave plenty of room for her to safely explore and one of the yellow sun beds, placed on its side at an angle above the veranda stairs made for an excellent stair gate!( just a little tip for others who may need it. ) Wendy, the meet and greet lady, was friendly and helpful and efficiently carried out our mid week clean, as requested. The location of the villa was perfect for us, close to the beach and a short walk to La Cala Town. We were so impressed with it, we had already booked for 2015 before we had got to the end of week one! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us and we very much look forward to returning next year :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review! We love the villa ourselves and enjoy creating a wonderful holiday experience for our guests. One of the nicest things about it is that there are so many areas to choose to sit and relax depending on the time of day, time of year and whether you want full sun or shade. We appreciate having guests that look after our home and look forward to welcoming you next year.

The perfect spot for us!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Alegria for four weeks in April-May 2014. Two of us stayed for the four weeks, while friends and family came to stay anything from four days to two weeks. It proved to be a fabulous way to celebrate our 40th anniversary and mark the beginning of our retirement. All our visitors - from 2 to 72 - also left totally impressed with the villa....and a little bit jealous of us!

The villa itself came equipped with everything we needed - and more than we expected! There is plenty of room for people to relax on the various verandas, without feeling crowded.

For us, Villa Alegria is in the perfect spot. With its own pool and proximity to the beach, it was ideal for our grandchildren (ages 2-8), who absolutely loved their stay here. It's a quiet spot (at least it was in April!), but near enough to the essentials - e.g. bakery for croissants(!), bars, shops and restaurants We didn't have a car, but were easily able to get out to Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella and Malaga on public transport.....but most of the time we spent lazing in this lovely setting that became a very comfortable home for a month.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 37 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Kiosco Cristobal at 100 Metres Nearest Train : Fuengirola at 6.8 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : El Olivo at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : La Cala de Mijas at 100 Metres Car: not necessary


La Cala beach is one of the best sandy beaches on this coastline. The villa is just one street back from the beach and you can walk there in less than 5 minutes. There is a new Promenade / Walkway that now follows the coast and connects from the centre of La Cala to Calahonda and will soon continue as far as Cabopino.


Malaga airport is 25km away - 25 minutes in a taxi. An alternative to a taxi is to get the train to Fuengirola and then it is only a 10 minute taxi ride. A car is not necessary as there are local shops and restaurants. The town of La Cala is only 5 minutes walk. There are also good bus connections.


Marbella and Puerto Banus are about 30 minutes drive. Fuengirola with zoo and water park is 10 minutes drive. Benalmadena with interesting marina and cable car is 20 minutes drive.

Further Details:

Many beach bars and restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Closest supermarket 5 minutes walk. Various shops and internet cafe 5 minutes walk. Lovely newly refurbished park 5 minutes walk.

La Cala town has many banks, shops, bars, restaurants and supermarkets and is a level 5 minute walk - either along roads or the beach. Market days are Wednesdays and Saturdays.
