About the property

Villa in Benalmadena, Costa del Sol, Spain - All amenities (shops, restaurants) and golf & transport within few minutes walk. Car not essential.

The urbanisation of Monte Alto is a quiet and private development and only 20 minutes’ drive from Malaga airport.

The villa is high walled, electrically gated, reasonably secluded, and set in good size mature gardens. It boasts 3 terraces one of which has a dining area with awning should the sun become too much, another terrace is a play area (basketball, badminton) and has an area partially covered, with easy seating (great for quiet reading times in the heat of the day) and table tennis , this terrace overlooks the swimming pool terrace which has sunbeds, additional dining and outdoor lounge seating.

Within a 5 minute walk you will find well-equipped supermarkets, pharmacy, newsagents, bars, restaurants and cashpoints.

There is a bus stop at the top of the urbanisation which takes you into Arroyo De La Miel and beyond which is also just a 15 minute walk. Arroyo is a large town where you can board a train into Malaga or Fuengirola. Tivoli World Amusement Park http://www.tivoli.es/_english/atracciones.html which is suitable for toddlers to teenagers is also on the edge Arroyo De La Miel and again is just a 10 minute walk. Also in Arroyo is Selwo Marina & Dolphin show http://www.selwomarina.es/en together with the beautiful and extensive La Paloma Park

Monte Alto is a 5 minute drive or taxi to the traditional white walled village of Benalmadena Pueblo with numerous bars and restaurants, prices to suit all pockets and a favourite of the owners.

Mijas Pueblo is a 20 minute drive, again a white walled village, lots of small streets with shops bars restaurants, a bullring, and if you fancy a tour of Mijas you can hire a donkey or horse drawn cart. The views to the coast are spectacular.

The beaches are just a 5 minute drive where there are beach bars and restaurants, comfortable sunbeds and unspoilt surroundings.

10 minutes by car or taxi and you are in Benalmadena Marina (Moorish in style), various boat excursions are available i.e. dolphin watching, together with sea life centre and a variety of shops , or have a relaxing dinner overlooking the Marina in the numerous restaurants.

It is not essential to hire a car to enjoy most of the amenities in the area, most can be enjoyed using the excellent local transport and taxis.

All of the above, and the comforts of the lovely villa will make your holiday a memorable one.

We are a family of four living in the South West, this has been our holiday home for many years and we have had many great family holidays around the region using the villa as our base.

The villa is now rented as we need to be at home more due to family commitments but we have a great couple who look after the property for us and are always just a phone call away.

We purchased the property from our friends as we had had great times staying with them and they now live in the Pueblo, we now rent the villa as our children seem to prefer the company of their friends (two teenage girls) to holidaying with us but we still return on a regular basis.

MANDY WILLIAMS purchased this villa in 2005

Just returned from a fabulous holiday once again in this beautiful villa

The villa was spotlessly clean and is very well equipped with everything you need.The games terrace and pool was a great hit again with our grandchildren .The villa is in a very quiet and peaceful residential area and yet within 5 mins walk of Lidl with lovely fresh bread and croissants. 10 mins walk takes you into the lovely Spanish town of Arroyo De La Miel with numerous restaurants and bars..Thank you Mandy for the use of your fabulous villa we can't wait to return next year

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We (family of four with boys aged six and nine and grandparents) all stayed for one week in this fantastic villa. It was perfect for all our needs and was very well equipped with everything you could think of. Our boys particularly enjoyed the badminton net, which is perfectly positioned on a terrace above the pool area. The whole villa inside and out was very clean and everything appeared to be of a high standard. The residential location was very peaceful during the day, yet all facilities are within a 10-15minute walk. We would definitely return here again..........

Owner's Response: Thankyou so much for your kind words. This is also our home which we use so it's furnished as a home and not a holiday property. Our teenage girls love the terrace to play netball and all ball sports also. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back. Thank-you again Mandy.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous holiday in this beautiful highly recommended villa .

It is spotlessly clean ,well equipped with everything you could need and lots of space inside and out.

It is very private and yet within easy 5 mins walk to supermarket and 10 mins walk to bars and restaurants in the lovely town of Arroyo De La Miel no need for a car

The games area and swimming pool was a great success withh our grandchildren .and also the cable car from Tivoli world is not to be missed

Nothing was too much trouble for Chris and Tina who look after the villa.They were there to welcome us and made sure we had everything we needed

All in all a fabulous holiday in a fabulous villa can't wait to return.

Thank you Mandy

Beautiful Villa/Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this Villa.

We spent 10 Days at this Villa, July 2015 and a Great time was had by all. The Villa is very well equipped and spotless clean with everything you need to hand. The pool and outdoor areas are Great with lots to keep the kids occupied, (Badminton, Basketball, Table Tennis, Darts etc) our boys really enjoyed themselves as did we.

Shops and supermarkets are within 5 - 10 min walk and the Marina/Beach is about 10 mins drive. Tivoli World is a 10 min walk.

Chris and Tina were a great help and always on hand if you needed them, but to be honest you couldn't have had any problems as everything was just spot on.

Family of 4, 2 Adults 2 Children ages 11 & 14.

Thanks Mandy!

Lovely villa, highly recommended *****

  • 5 of 5

Lovely large, clean, well equipped villa in a quiet residential street making a perfect stay for a family holiday. Situated about a 10 minute drive from the lovely Benalmadena marina (or an hours walk mainly down hill). Supermarket in walking distance along with a handful of bars/restaurants (although we didn't go to these). The pool was fab and I had to drag my children out each day. Excellent place if your a keen cyclist (which my husband is) cycling up into the mountains each day with fantastic views. Chris and Tina who maintain the villa and welcomed us on behalf of the owner Mandy were great and really helpful. My only suggestion for improvement, was the steps that go down to the front door are exposed so I had to improvise and block off to prevent my 2 year old from falling down them. The property however is gated and fenced so is totally secure. Thank you for letting us use your home, we had a great holiday.
