Overview

About the property

Villa in Mijas, Costa del Sol, Spain - There simply is no other country estate that compares to ‘Fort Inglés’

It's uniqueness is awe-inspiring with its stunning panoramic views. It is conveniently situated on the scenic road between Fuengirola and Alhaurin El Grande - yet close to all amenities and 6 championship golf courses. It is approximately 35mins from the airport and about 20mins to the beach.

The villa is set in its own private grounds of 62,000 square metres (15 acres) approached through electric gates down a 100m drive into the courtyard. All the reception rooms are spacious, light and airy and have double French Doors opening onto picturesque terraces, balconies, or the pool area.

There are five bedrooms, all en-suite. The main master bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom with bath and separate shower. It features a 'minstrel' gallery with a curved wrought iron balcony rail. This comprises a lounge area and two extra beds for children to sleep in the same room as their parents if required.

The second master bedroom has a bathroom, also with bath and separate shower, a dressing room and an en-suite sitting room. It should be noted that two more single beds can be put in the in the en-suite living room if required. At the expense of privacy, this effectively increases the maximum sleeping capacity from 10 to 12.

The third bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, also with superb views through the picture window and a wraparound balcony and terrace..

On the lower ground floor there are two separate bedrooms with bathrooms en-suite, having their own covered balcony with magnificent views and a walkway along the cactus path to the pool/recreational area.

The owners/staff live in a separate apartment next to the main house. For the summer months this apartment is closed and the staff move a short distance from the villa. Facility maintenance will still occur - at pre-arranged times for guests. Staff are available for any assistance you require; booking taxis, reserving restaurants, baby sitting, etc.

About Michele Greene

15 years ago Martin and I sold up in the UK and decided with our family to start a new life in the sunshine. We spent five years designing and building our dream home.

We wanted everything incorporated in the Villa that we enjoyed so that we could share the amenities with our family and friends.

Now the children have left home and we have opened our home.

We've been so lucky to have had so many wonderful guests stay with us, some whom have remained friends.

Michele Greene purchased this villa in 2001

Fantastic week at Fort Ingles

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a Fort Ingles for a week during a tour of Spain in our classic Jaguars and had a fantastic time. Michele and Martin ensured that our stay went smoothly and were very helpful in organising local restaurants and taxis. The location is brilliant, secluded and secure with stunning views. The villa is really spacious and well equipped with ample space both inside and out. The leisure facilities were great with swimming pool, hot tub, table tennis table and pool table getting good use.

Thanks Martin and Michele for a great week, we'd love to come back.

Great House, Very Private Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Fort Ingles. We were 12 people and everyone had more than enough space in the house. The teenagers quickly claimed the game room and played endless games of table tennis and pool and loved having their own space and hanging out on the comfy couches. Everyone spent hours in the pool and the Jacuzzi and we especially loved going in around 10 or 11 pm at night after dinner. We did a lot of cooking ourselves and the kitchen was great for that – large refrigerator (and another one by the pool), two ovens, both gas and electric stove tops, multiple sinks, microwave and an outdoor bbq. We very much enjoyed the privacy of the house – truly no neighbors around – and that even though the house feels and is secluded you drive to it on a proper road which we’ve had issues with in other rentals. Michele and Martin are on the property as other reviews noted but they give us our privacy and were there to help for any issues in the house or general questions. They were very accommodating about arrival and departure times and supplied very nice fruit baskets and chocolate in the house for our arrival, which we all enjoyed. We’d definitely recommend the house for families or larger groups of people that are looking for a great place to relax, spend time together and use a base for some day trips (although hard to get the motivation to leave when it is so nice in the house!).

Fort Ingles - Idyllic..schhhh

  • 5 of 5

Fort Ingles is in a perfect location and is a fabulous villa The views are stunning all around with gorgeous views from each room as well. The hosts are all frondly, helpful, discreet but on hand should you need them. Terry and Sheila had just got married and friends and family shared their stay with them over a period of 5 nights. A great games room and wonderful pool kept everyone happy. We would be happy to return and have already recommended Fort Ingles to our friends for a perfect getaway.

Honeymoon June 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our honeymoon stay at Fort Ingles from the 23rd June for 5 days was absolutely perfect....the owners Michele and Martin and their son Charlton and daughter Chelsea made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived.........and although it was our honeymoon, we did have various members of the family and friends staying, some for an overnight stay, others longer...some for just the day, nothing was too much trouble for Michele and Martin, even when we required extra beds in one of the rooms...it was sorted without any problems,...

The villa and surrounding grounds are amazing...the pool is spotlessly clean and the jacuzzi got lots of use late at night....as did the games room....

Everything you need is there....washing machine, tumble dryer, fully equipped kitchen, bbq etc...but as well as the above, we were provided with dressing gowns, slippers, lovely fluffy bath towels, fruit, chocolates, cava and cold drinks upon our arrival and towels for around the pool....

Privacy was paramount to us....and we had it....we knew where to go if we had any questions or needed assistance (but as was the case...neither was needed)..

I cannot recommend Fort Ingles highly enough, we will definately return....as will my family who loved the place as much as we did....

I wish Michele and Martin continued success...and hope to see them next year.....

A fantastic week at Fort Ingles

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a wonderful week at Fort Ingles. Having seen the stunning pictures we had high expectations. We were not disappointed.

Our only regret is that we could not stay for a second week.

Highly recommended.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Fort Ingles was a great venue to accommodate 18 family members across three generations for my 50th birthday celebration and holiday. There was plenty of relaxing in the Jacuzzi with fantastic views of the mountains. There was also plenty to keep the little ones entertained. The house is well placed to get out and about to explore the local area and only a short drive from shops and restaurants and the beach. Owners Michele and Martin could not have been more welcoming or helpful.
