Fabulous Week at a Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

8 members of our family travelled over to Spain for a family birthday celebration and we took a chance on this property after seeing it online. Lucky for us that we did! Gorgeous setting, amazing house and pool and lovely owners who we were delighted to meet. Close to the town of Alhaurin El Grande, we had the luxury of walking to the town and relaxing over Tapas and a few beers, then strolling back to the Villa and relaxing around the pool. We all would recommend this villa and fully intend going back ourselves.

An absolutely wonderful Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 8, 5 adults and 3 children and Al Proton was plenty big enough for all of us to have our own space.

The kitchen appliances were all top quality and the cooker easy to use, the kitchen area was where we spend most of our time.

The wifi and the TV package in the villa offers you all the channels you would want including all the latest films, which was a lovely way to relax.

The bedding, the towels all immaculate, in fact I cannot think of a negative comment the whole place was well kept and the owners came round to water the garden so all of the beautiful pots and plants looked at there best for us, it made us feel very special.

I could got on and on, needless to say we would highly recommend this beautiful Villa.

Last but my no means least, Kate and Ken the owners, were kind and very helpful, always quick to respond to any queries we may have had, and also when we had a problem with our hire car, Ken without a minutes hesitation took 2 of us into Alhaurin to do some shopping

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful villa, the photos don't do the place justice.

We spent the most amazing week at "El Porton" and wouldn't think twice about going back. It's located just on the outskirts of the town and a short walk up the hill will take you close to shops and restaurants. The nearest supermarket is only 5 minutes drive away and it's very easy to park there.

The villa itself is HUGE. You don't realise from the photos how vast it is. There are lots of separate rooms to chill out and relax in, if you wish. Everything is spotless and the kitchen has all the equipment you need. The beds are comfy and all rooms have aircon. The wifi is good, too.

The outside area is wonderful. There's a lovely shaded area by the pool (including a beer fridge!) along with a large sun terrace and the crystal clear pool. There's also a great BBQ area. Round the side of the property is also a built in bar area - great place to relax in the evening and play cards, etc.

The villa is set in large grounds and is very private. You can drive in, close the gate and forget the rest of the world for a week. This is farming country so expect hear the noises of donkeys and cockerels in the morning!

The owners (Ken and Kate) were very accommodating and couldn't do enough for us. They welcomed us with a bowl of fruit and a bottle of fizz. They popped in each day to feed their dogs that live in a separate run on the property but were no way intrusive. A lovely couple. The dogs were a great bonus for us too as they shared the garden and pool with us!

If you want to experience proper Spain without the tacky Med beaches, etc. then this is the place for you. There are a number of wonderful restaurants close by including The Sardina (tapas) and El Boma (South African)

Overall we loved our time at El Porton and if you're thinking of booking, do it!
