Sun, fun and luxury

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa which was excellently equipped and beautifully clean. The arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms was just right for the eight of us.

The kitchen was large enough that we did not fall over each other and again excellently equipped. We all loved the pool and the open views.

The garden provided lots of spaces where one could have a 'quiet moment' We could not fault the villa and it was certainly the best we have rented in many years of having family holidays. Kate and Ken were very helpful particularly as we had car problems and also rented the villa for ten days rather than the usual week. Thank you for a great holiday

A truly wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful property and truly lovely hosts. We only spent a week but wish it was longer. The villa is well equipped and extremely large just for the two of us but it was only one of two available at such short notice but we were so glad that we picked it. Only walked into the town once as we went further afield most days but the town is quaint and we had a drink and Tapas in the square next to the church. Highly recommend going to Mijas if you like Flamenco as they have a free show on Wed & Sat at noon in the Plaza. Have had hols in The Costa Del Sol since 1987 and it has changed so much over the years but there are still some places worth a visit. Hope to come back to the villa soon and if you book and stay you will not be disappointed

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
