The third level consists of one large bedroom suite complete with separate bathroom and terrace balcony. Located in the quiet residential area of El Coto, and set within its own large plot, this impressive 6 bedroom villa provides wonderful views over the town of Fuengirola and the sea. Only a 5 minute walk to local bars, restaurants and shops, and only a ten minute drive to the beach and golf courses ,it is ideally placed for various types of holiday. The town centre is a 5 minute drive for those seeking the night life, as is the nearest water park.

About Gary Thomas

Our two properties are jointly owned by various family members.

The villa (S26580) is owned by myself, my two bothers (Steve and Richard), my sister (Suzanne), and our mum (Valerie). The villa was home to Mum and Dad since 1985 and has been used for many family holidays over the years.

The apartment (S8533) is owned by me, my wife (Jane) and Jane's brother (Gareth). We bought the apartment in 2007 and it offers something a little different, being in a quiet, Spanish village on the Costa Tropical.

Gary Thomas purchased this villa in 1985

Why Gary Thomas chose Mijas area

This villa is owned by my two brothers, sister, mother and myself, having originally been home to our parents since 1985. Now that our mother has decided to return to the UK to live, we would like other people to experience and enjoy this ideal family holiday home. All of us have spent our summer holidays here and all our children have learned to swim in the large family sized swimming pool and in the security of the walled perimeter.

It is ideally placed for easy access to Fuengirola town and beaches, plus all the local amenities such as bars, restaurants, supermarkets, golf, and tennis.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is the ideal holiday venue for a large family (or 2!), a group of friends, or a party/family with someone of restricted mobility. We have installed a lift in the garage at street level that will take anyone up to the second level on which is found nearly all the living accommodation (bar one bedroom suite). The flat garden, the three terraces, the pool, the pool patio, and the BBQ are all to be found on this level.

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property. We were a group of 11, 5 children, 2 teenagers and 4 adults. This property is a great place to stay if you are a large group, and more than one family. It was spacious, very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and more, and more than big enough for us all. It was also very clean and tidy.

The pool and gardens were a great hit especially with the children who literally lived in it, and it was easy to lie by the pool whilst keeping an eye on the children. We had a couple of problems whilst we were there, but these were quickly dealt with by Paul the manager.

The villa is in walking distance of shops and an amazing restaurant which seemed to serve everything imaginable. The villa is in easy distance for days out, we went to Benalmadena on the cable car and Mijas which is well worth a visit.

In all of my dealings with the owner Gary not a single problem and communication was very quick and efficient, and very informative.

All in all a great place to stay and will be looking to book again next year with my parents.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We really are glad that you and your children enjoyed your stay at Los Faisanes, and Paul will be extremely plaesed that you mentioned how clean and tidy the villa was, as he is very particular about that. I am sorry that the dishwasher decided to stop working whilst you were there, and for the other small issue you experienced, but glad that you feel that Paul responded in a quick and timely manner to remedy the situation. It goes without saying that you would be more than welcome back next year, should you decide to come back with your parents. Thank you once again for choosing our villa for your holiday. Gary

Great time in lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

As an extended family of ten, ages ranging from 3 to 67 we had a fabulous 2 week holiday in this perfectly suited villa. Plenty of room for all, fully equipped and a safe garden (fenced off swimming pool) for the children to play in.

Ideally located for the local restaurants; the closest being El Brujo, only 3 minutes walk. We went to this restaurant three times as it was very family friendly and great value for money. La Luna was another excellent restaurant although it's about a 15 minute walk up hill but staggering home was much easier!!!

We'd highly recommend staying in this villa for a fun and great time to be had by all.

Thank you Gary

Great for large family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Party of 7 golfers stayed here for 9 nights (immediately after Carly's group, thanks for the cup cakes!). Brilliant villa as most of us like our own room it was ideal, try getting a hotel in the same class for the same price, not a chance. Turn right out of the villa and walk about 5 minutes and there is a restaurant serving Mexican/Italian/Mediterranean food which is really excellent value for money. There is another place El Cafelito (something like that) across the road which was good for breakfast, also an Indian restaurant, bakery, butcher and convenience store. Back to the villa, excellent outdoor area, pool and plenty of seating and sun loungers. We had a barbeque one early evening which was very enjoyable. The amenities in the villa give you a home from home experience, all you need in the kitchen and living room. For those seeking the nightlife head to Fuengirola, we walked a couple of times and stopped for a drink which is a good way to do it but most times we took taxis, its only 7 euros each way so it cost us around £3.50 each a night for cabs. Fuengirola is excellent for restaurants and bars and its good value from the higher end restaurants to the bars serving snacks/meals. Drinks are an average price of around £2 and a meal will cost from around £15 to £30 for two courses and a couple of drinks dependent on the quality of the restaurant. All in all a cracking holiday and Gary the owner made it easy to book the villa and gave us all the information we needed. His representative in the resort Paul was very helpful and arrived early to see us in and out of the villa. Don't hesitate to book this villa if you are a large group looking for a chill out time or looking for the more hectic holiday. Also for golfers its brilliant with so many courses available within a 30 minutes drive. We have been golfing and staying in villas since 1998 and I can honestly say this is the best villa we have stayed in, all in all brilliant.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

I have just had my hen weekend at this villa and it was amazing. 10 of us stayed in this fantastic villa. The place is so spacious and modern with everything we needed. The location of the villa is also great, just a few mins to the local mini market where there is also a restaurant serving just about everything.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Gary, the owner is really nice and very easy to deal with. Paul the manager is also very friendly and helpful.

Cannot praise this place enough.

great relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four critical grumpy old men stayed for a week from 28.02.15 and we were delighted with our holiday as the villa was as described and more.

The villa was very clean and tidy with every facility you would need and all you had to do was food shop, although there were all the basics that would allow you to get unpacked, enjoy a coffee on one of the terraces and plan.

The supermarket, restaurants and pharmacy were well within walking distance so getting stocked up, enjoy al fresco drinking and eating was easy.

The weather was fantastic and we enjoyed our breakfast every morning on the east facing terrace just off the lounge.

The sun terrace was used every day and when it got too hot we sat on the terrace which had mechanical sun shades and very comfortable seating.

The lounge was very comfortable and where we spent our nights.

all of the bedrooms were very clean as were all bathrooms and toilet facilities.

it is very difficult to find a negative about the property as there was even a lift for getting the less mobile of us (me) down to street level without using steps.

all in all a great place, great location and great holiday.

give it a try!!

Owner's Response: Hi Colin, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are very glad that you all enjoyed your stay and that you had nice enough weather (even in February!) to enjoy all the different terraces at different times of the day. I will pass on your comments regarding the cleanliness of the villa to Paul Smith, our villa manager, who will appreciate them greatly. Suffice to say that should you or any of your friends wish to return at any time, you would of course be more than welcome. Gary
