About the property

Away from it all, without being too cut off!

A pretty Spanish villa, ideal for families or groups of friends. Sleeps from 1 to 8 guests. 3 double bedrooms (extra beds provided free of charge), 4 bathrooms, large family farmhouse style kitchen with sofabed, formal lounge with 2 large sofas and wing-back chairs. 50" TV with basic British TV package, HDMI and USB connections. Plenty of space inside and out to relax in a corner to yourself, even when you are part of a large group. Outside there´s a covered terrace with 3 sofas, an open courtyard with pool table under the shade of a lemon tree, a shady barbeque complete with huge table and plenty of chairs. The swimming pool has a springboard and slide (suitable for fun loving adults as well as children), tiled sundecks with plenty of sunloungers. The lawn has fruit trees for shade. The whole pool area is fully fenced in making it safe for families with children.

The villa is in a very quiet estate of private villas but only a twenty minute walk from the affluent, lively town of Alhaurin de la Torre. 20 minutes in the car and you are on the beaches of Torremolinos

The walk into the town centre from the villa is along our quiet, well lit, cul de sac and then along safely lit, palm tree lined pavements.

The villa is ideal for groups and families, but also for couples who enjoy the private space and having a pool to themselves. There are a number of steps within the grounds, making it unsuitable for wheelchairs. We do not allow smoking within the villa at any time, but there are plenty of comfortable, shady chairs outside. The air conditioning is in the kitchen/dining room and all three bedrooms. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I live, with my friendly dogs, in a house in a totally separate area of the grounds. There is a high wall between my gardens and yours and therefore I will not disturb your privacy at all. However, I am on hand should you require any help or some local knowledge. I have plenty of recommendations for good restaurants!

Wonderful villa in a great location for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more delighted with the villa on our arrival as it was even better than pictures showed. It was cool and very clean with everything we needed including an outdoor fridge, a lovely outdoor eating area and plenty of seating.

Anneliese gave us a warm welcome, which was no surprise as the communication during booking was excellent. Anneliese also provided lots of info about the local area including places to eat. La Baranda in town was excellent and also Old Italy. We even found a great Indian restaurant in nearby Alhaurin el Grande called Indian Flavour.

The location was ideal for playing a number of golf courses nearby and within 25 minutes you could be on the beach or wandering around the port in Benalmadena. The large pool at the villa was a refreshing place to cool off after a hot day, the springboard and slide will cope with grown adults!.

We had a fabulous, relaxing 10 days and are already planning a return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you! On your recommendation I dined at Indian Flavour the other day and all I can say is thank you! It really is as excellent as you said. It is now on my list of favourite restaurants in the information folder in the villa. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Perfect - A true home from home

  • 5 of 5

Overall this villa is perfect. It’s large, clean, comfortable and offers a lots of indoor and outdoor space. The owner is brilliant – leaving you a manual (red folder of joy!) to keep you right on everything you need to know about the gadgets, area, villa and your responsibilities as guests. Wi-fi? Great! Don’t hesitate to book (but please don’t book the weeks we want!)

More Detail...

This villa is situated in a quiet residential area on the edge of a vibrant and lively town with lots of shops, bars and restaurants - however a car is recommended.

The interior accommodation is clean, stylish and spacious. There are three bedrooms - two with en-suites. Showers are excellent with hot water always available. Beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of wardrobe and drawer spaces.

Livingroom is very comfortable and large with a large TV, DVD player with DVDs and a book library. Sofas are HUGE and extremely comfortable.

The kitchen is enormous with a large rustic table and everything you could want to prepare and cook meals and snacks.

But where this villa really excels is its outdoor spaces. There’s lots of them and they all offer something different.

The sofas in the shaded porch is perfect for morning coffee, a little bit of respite from the hot Spanish sun, and a little tipple in the evening.

The huge comfrotable table (will seat 12) at the shaded BBQ area means meals last a long time as chat, laughter and wine flow

The corner area at the pool is wonderful to read a book and look at the mountains in the distance.

The grounds are immaculate (Tom the gardener visits on a Monday) with orange and lemon trees in the front and back gardens (the fruit is like nothing you will ever have tasted)

Pool area is large, secure with lots of loungers and chairs.

The only draw back might be if you have mobility problems as there are a number of stairs. But its a wonderful place and Annelise does a wonderful job of making you very welcome.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you so much. All I ever strive for is for my guests to love the villa as much as I do and wish to return. There is nothing else to say except I think I might ask you to write the villa advert for next season!

Perfect family villa

  • 5 of 5

LOVE this place. Searched 4 ages 4 a villa that would suit needs of family (me, husband, 4 + 2 yr old). I will list out all great things about villa and hopefully save another family time in their search.

1. Gated pool. It's locked and inaccessible for small children without parents. You can't put a price on peace of mind.

2. The pool. Great temperature. Big enough to have a swim. Slide and dive board which my 4 year old absolutely loved.

3. Pool area. LOVELY. Loads of sunbeds and a seating area. LOVELY view of the hills. Saw one of the nicest sunsets I have ever seen from the pool area. I would recommend watching the sun set from the pool area, it is very peaceful.

4. The patio area. Great spot to get the kids to play in if it's too hot. Always shaded so great for a break from the heat. Lovely to sit there at night, nice and cool, you can see the stars, excellent wifi if you want to watch a movie or a show online (we were able to access our Sky account).

5. The wifi. Best I have ever had outside of my own house or work. Not one single problem with it.

6. The villa has a/c in all the bedrooms and in the kitchen/diner. It was very hot when we were there, hovering around 38/39 for a few days (I think this is unusual, it was in the news), the a/c was a life saver, particularly as my daughter and I were both sick for a good portion of the stay (son was sick before we arrived so we caught his virus).

7. The kitchen/diner. It's massive. Lots of room. It's also very very pretty.

8. The bathrooms. There are 4. 2 bedrooms are ensuite, one family bathroom in the house and another family sized bathroom off the patio area. That one is a particularly nice bathroom. Great, powerful shower. Big bath, kids liked it. Shower in the main bedroom also lovely. Didn't use the others so can't comment but looked fine.

9. Very responsive, helpful owner.

The villa is just a really great set up for families with small children. The pool is gated, there are shaded areas if required, plenty of space to play, a/c if necessary, bars on the windows (standard in Spain so you can keep windows open) so you can open the windows at night with peace of mind. Also, easy drive from Malaga airport (and I mean EASY), easy drive into Torremolinos for the beach, local town is very lovely and charming. Perfect place and we hope to visit again, next time with my folks. Cannot recommend highly enough. I don't have one single complaint. Thanks Anneliese!

The property was immaculately kept and well equipped. All details regarding the location, layout and facilities were accurate. It was well situated for visiting a variety of historic towns and beaches. The manager provided an excellent service and was full of useful suggestions for activities locally. I would whole-heartedly recommend this property to friends. Malaga is well worth spending some time in as there are several interesting museums and art galleries, plus beaches and historical monuments and ruins. Ronda and Cordoba are also highly recommended.

Alhaurin de la Torre is an affluent town with all the modern amenities you could possibly require, set around an older, traditional centre.

The villa will be a tranquil, relaxing world of your own but within a few minutes of bars, shops and restaurants.

Two minutes from the mountainous countryside, 20 minutes from the beaches of Torremolinos. 30 minutes from Benalmadena Costa. Lauro Golf is only 6 minutes away and dozens of golf courses are within half an hours drive. The Plaza Mayor shopping and entertainment complex is 15 minutes away, with around 30 restaurants, all the major clothing retailers, a multi screen cinema and bowling alley.

Malaga city is only a 15 minute drive. A city which is well worth visiting for it´s old quarter with Picasso museum and cathedral

Other Activities: There is everything you could possibly wish for within a 20 minute drive of this villa. An hour and a half and you can ski in the Sierra Nevada!

Golf: Lauro Golf Course is only a 6 minute drive from the villa. It is beautiful. Parador Golf in Malaga is only a 20 minute drive away. Alhaurin Golf is the next nearest at just under half an hour, then Mijas Golf, Santana Golf and dozens more within three quarters of an hour!
