About Jeremy or Venetia

We are a farming family in Hertfordshire who have owned property in Fuengirola for over 50 years. Some 40 years ago we found a fantastic opportunity to build our own villa and thus was born La Solana. We have a large family who continue to enjoy the villa as our second home.

Jeremy or Venetia purchased this villa in 1970

Why Jeremy or Venetia chose Mijas area

During the 1970s, having already owned a home in the area, we decided to purchase a secluded piece of land with amazing views on top of a hill, on which to build our dream villa. Despite its fantastic private location access to local amenities is quick and easy.

What makes this villa unique

We have enjoyed many holidays at La Solana since we built it in the 1970s on unspoilt countryside. Over the years it has been an ideal second home to entertain friends and family of all ages in a brilliant location. Nearby sports include golf, tennis, horse riding and waterparks.

It has unrivalled views across the countryside and towards the sea. The villa is very spacious with unusually large bedrooms and communal areas suitable for children and adults alike.

The villa is only a 20 minute drive from Malaga airport so is a hassle free transfer to sunshine! Marbella is a simple 20 minute drive and the charming white-washed village of Mijas, only 4 miles from the villa, retains much of the Andalusian way of life and is very interesting to explore.

Local shops and restaurants are only a 10 minute walk.

Excellent family accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at La Solana. Our family holiday was to celebrate two 'round' birthdays and it was the perfect place for our family of 8 adults, 1 teenager and 2 children. Apart from two days at the beach, we spent our days in and around the pool. The villa and gardens were spacious enough for us all to have our own space, yet we gathered on the veranda in the evenings, with a glass of wine and a game of cards

enjoying the fantastic view over Fuengirola.

Due to the size of our party, we decided not to bother with a hire car and relied on either taxis or the bus into Fuengirola. It is a 15 minute walk down to El Coto where there is a small supermarket, Pizzeria, Pharmacy, 2 reasonable restaurants (which do,takeaways) and the bus stop. The supermarket will order you a taxi back to the villa !

For shopping a hire car would be advantageous!

La Solana is well equipped for a family holiday and we would certainly return and recommend.

A wonderful week with lots of special memories.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and well appointed villa with great views from the rear terrace stretching down to the sea. Spacious and comfortable with a great pool it was the perfect base for our family holiday. Although a car will be essential the villa is handily placed between the lively Fuengirola and the beautiful Mijas each with loads of restaurants and bars , both these towns have very efficient and reasonably priced taxi services to get you home if needed. Thank you Jeremy for a very enjoyable stay all round.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family,8 Adults and two children have just returned from a Fantastic week at Villa La Solana,

The Villa was very homely, spacious and well equipped.

Having the Sun all day meant we spent most of our time at the pool or on the first floor terrace, this also allowed us to relax in the evenings with superb views of Fuengirola.

El Coto has three great restaurants. La Verona The Indian and the Pizzeria and has a supermarket for the essentials.The walk from the Villa takes 15 minutes downhill but would recommend a taxi back! costing 8 Euros per journey.

As this was our first Villa holiday, Jeremy was very helpful giving us advice before our arrival.

Would happily revisit in the future.

Great property in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently stayed in this property with 6 adults and 6 children. The property was in a lovely location with great views. There was plenty of room for us all and Jeremy was very accommodating even sourcing extra high chairs and travel cots for us to save us bringing them with us. There was also a stair gate in place on the stairs down to the bedrooms which was great as with young children it meant we were able to relax.

Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend the property.

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family stayed in this wonderful villa. It is huge... ! It was very clean and tidy. All rooms have remote air conditioning. The pool is not overlooked and is a real sun trap. And the view.... Every night we sat on that balcony with a bottle of wine to watch the sun go down... Bliss. The owners are very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We would love to return.... !

Beautiful villa in fabulous surroundings

  • 5 of 5

I visited Villa Solana this September to celebrate a 'round' Birthday with 9 'girlfriends' - and it turned out to be the PERFECT choice!!

First of all the owner, Jeremy, had been extremely responsive and helpful both when booking and during the months leading up to our stay. He happily answered any questions I had about the villa and the area and also provided great advice regarding local car hire, restaurants, beaches etc.

The rooms in the villa were all clean, tidy, well-equipped and quite large - and all had their own en-suite. In addition, most of them have doors that lead directly out into the pool/garden area - or onto the huge upstairs terrasse (too big to be described as a balcony!!) with that FANTASTIC view over the mountains, the town and the sea.

The kitchen was also well-equipped, with 2 fridges, dishwasher and washing machine - and both the dining and lounge areas were spacious and with plenty of space for at least 10 adults.

We spent most of our time lounging by the pool (great size and cleaned by 'pool man' whilst we were there) as well as 'lazying' around and dining on the terasse in the evenings (terrasse had both a dining area with plenty of space for 10 adults to dine comfortably as well as a more relaxed sofa arrangement).

We only ventured out for lunch on one occasion (bar on the beach - lovely) and dinner one evening (can't remember the name of the restaurant but it was in 'the square' and it was 'buzzing' and really nice). The drive into town from the villa was only approx. 10 minutes but the area where the villa is situated is very hilly so a car is definitely recommended - and there's room for parking at least 3 cars by the villa.

Finally, the photos don't lie ..... the view (and the villa) really IS that lovely! We all had such a great time - really didn't want to leave - and all hope to be back in the near future.
