Beautifully villa nestled amongst olive groves

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at this villa - a perfect haven from the hustle and bustle, and a wonderful place from which to explore 'real Spain'. Everything was catered for: the property and pool were larger than expected, the accommodation was very clean and tidy, and we were only a short drive away from excellent local restaurants and facilities. There were seven of us staying at the villa, and we all came home with a lot of happy memories.

Spanish holiday 2015

  • 5 of 5

The Finca is ideally situated close enough to the coast for day trips by car but set in amongst some beautiful mountainous scenery. For golfers there are plenty of interesting looking courses to visit. The accommodation is superb offering 2 spacious indoor living areas and a covered outdoor area to retreat from the sun. The pool is very well maintained and in Sept/Oct, still plenty warm enough to swim. The owners have furnished the property to a very high standard and it is very comfortable. It is well equipped for home cooking and bar-b-quing. Alternatively there are some very good restaurants and eateries in the town and surrounding countryside.

The property is well maintained on a weekly basis by a great team of the house keeper, gardener and pool manager, all of whom are very helpful with advice on where to visit, eat and even offered a taxi service.

It is situated next door to an equestrian centre which for me added some interest and was nice listening to the horses being schooled in the paddock.

The best places to visit for me are Malaga, along the harbourside. The old part of Alhaurin el Grande. Puerto Banus but after walking around the Harbour admiring the boats you need to be situated at the front of a bar/restaurant to people watch, very interesting! La Boma and the Moroccan Restaurant in Alhaurin, the newer part were my favourite meals but all were very good.

I will definitely be going back, hopefully this year and am looking forward to visiting more lovely places or just relaxing around the pool as was a large part of my last visit. Definitely recommended.

Fabulous finca in the country

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a few properties in this area over the past few years and this is by far the best. The location is far enough away to be semi rural, but only 5 minutes drive into Alhaurin el grande. The villa was really well maintained, very clean and equipped with everything you will need. We particularly enjoyed chilling out in the evening in the covered terrace with abit of music and a bottle of wine. The support team Lesley has are fantastic and are more than happy to share their local knowledge. If you're into golf, the location is spot on - just 20 - 30 minutes drive and it's golf heaven. We played Mijas, La Cala and Santana which were all great, Lauro golf not so good!

Fantastic Villa in a great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect with everything our family needed for a great holiday! Plenty of space for our young children to play (6, 4 & 3) and we all loved the incredibly warm pool but i think the excellent weather helped with that!

Lesley and her team of staff couldn't do enough to ensure our two week stay was as enjoyable as possible.

The location is fantastic with peace and quiet in abundance and the local towns in close proximity. We ate out most evenings at a different restaurant every night and every meal we had was delicious. Our three favourites were Little Italy in Alhuarin el Torre, Alamadina in Alhaurin el Grande (the Moroccan Tea is amazing!!!) and Sol y Luna (cheap and very good - the only place we went twice!)

We never normally visit the same place twice but we are already looking at how we can spend some more time here next year - it was that good!

Fantastic and Relaxing Summer Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week away in this beautiful Finca. The location is excellent, nice and peaceful with stunning views. The Finca has everything you need and very homely, it is very well maintained and cleaned to a very high standard. It has three Bedrooms which are very spacious and very comfortable, the living room is great to relax in. Having Sky TV and Wifi was great for our girls. The Pool and outside area is also fantastic and very clean.

Lots of places nearby to visit, Mijas very pretty with a great water park, Puerto Banus fast cars and great shopping. Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos are also close enough to visit but nice to return to the tranquility of the Finca. The owners Lesley and Frank are amazing and cannot do enough to help you, checking you have arrived safely and providing you with information on places to visit and restaurants to eat.

I would recommend this special villa to anyone and we will definitely be going back.

From the Owner

We love the convenience of having the local traditional working Spanish town only five minutes drive away, we feel it's the best of both worlds - rustic charm with the peace and quiet and facilities very close. Our garden and orchard are constantly changing and surprising us, we enjoy the calm and tranquillity of our second home, it's an escape from reality
