MIJAS VILLA WITH STUNNING VIEWS AND PRIVACY YET NEAR TO ALL AMENITIES

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Mijas - Los Abuelos

3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, private swimming pool, sleeps 5

Spectacular sea and mountain views makes this property unique. The house, a renovated 19th century farmhouse, was our guest house and lies within our 11.000m2 property, surrounded by vines and fruit trees on 5 lower lying terraces. Although totally separated from our own house and garden by mature trees and its own garden, living next door ensures quick solutions to any possible queries/problems. The way the house is orientated guarantees both shelter and sunshine right throughout the year. The house is perfectly equipped for both summer and winter use (we even supply firewood) and has all all those little details that will make you feel totally at home, such as hairdryer, guide books, films on DVD, books to read, games, broadband connection, etc. There are plenty of terraces for al fresco dining and the private swimming pool allows you to enjoy your holiday late into the night.

EXCURSIONS:-

Los Abuelos is a perfect base to visit the rest of Andalucia and even Africa!

The nearest city is Málaga (½ hour drive) Picasso’s birth place and an important port in the 19th century.

Marbella (½ hour drive) still retains the quaintness and charm of the old Andalucian town it used to be. Further on lies Gibraltar, memories of Nelson and ancient sea battles visible. For those who want to visit the more authentic and historical part of Spain there are three beautiful cities within two or three hours’ drive from Los Abuelos.

Granada with its unique Alhambra Palace; Cordoba boasts a Catholic cathedral within the walls of an amazing mosque and Sevilla, not to be missed, especially as it is the capital of Andalucia and has all the hustle and bustle of a modern city. On the outskirts of Sevilla lies Italica, an ancient Roman city where the Roman emperor Trajano was born.

For a closer visit to an inland Spanish town try Ronda.

LIFE AT 'LOS ABUELOS':-

A 15 minute walk uphill to the village of Mijas to buy your newspaper and then sit at a bar to enjoy a well-earned cup of coffee or beer. Perhaps a stroll to the village museum or wander through the quaint white-washed streets full of delightful shops and atmosphere. The children may enjoy a ride on a donkey too. Stock up with local fresh products in the market place and stroll downhill back home. Time for a swim, tennis and sunbathing. A siesta in the comfortable sunbed lulled to sleep by the hum of the cicadas and the occasional cow bell. But the best are the long summer evenings, sitting out on the south-west facing terrace watching the sun going down and seeing the activity in the nearby farms. Then at night time the spectacular views are all you need to entertain you as a cruise ship sails by in the distance and the lights sparkle from the town of Fuengirola. Oh, and a glass of wine will not go amiss!

EXCELLENT PROPERTY!

  • 5 out of 5
This really is a wonderful house in a beautiful location. The house is very well maintained, comfortable and spotlessly clean. All the beds were extremely comfortable too. We were delighted with the selection of books and DVDs available for us to use. The large gas BarBQue was put to good use as was the very nice swimming pool.The roads leading up to the property are very daunting at first but you do get used to them after a while. It takes about 20 minutes uphill to walk into Mijas village - we only did it once as our 4 year old was not really up to it but it should not be an issue for any able bodied person. Mijas village is very quaint and pretty. Amanda was great to deal with, efficient, friendly and available if needed. We had a wonderful holiday here and would highly recommend it for a perfect relaxing holiday. We would love to return!

COZY PROPERTY WITH STUNNING VIEWS

  • 4 out of 5
The drive to this holiday home is an adventure in itself on the narrow, winding and steep roads (4wd rental car recommended!). But absolutely worth it! This is a lovely holiday home, very cosy and complete, very well taken care of. The views from the terraces are absolutely amazing, every time of the day. Amanda is a truly gracious host, who makes you feel like your visiting friends instead of renting a house. Lots of things to do and see in the area. We were lucky to have amazing weather early May, so we did have a great holiday here. Hope to be back some day!

5* PERFECT HOLIDAY VILLA, PRIVACY AND SEA VIEWS

  • 5 out of 5
Very clean and well maintained property. Amanda was a perfect owner/manager. Have already recommended this villa to family and friends. The views from where ever we sat were spectacular. You defenatly need to hire a car unless your very fit and used to the heat. This was a home away from home for us and was perfect break from our hectic life styles. The only very minor point was the every dog in the surrounding areas seam to constantly bark. But fortunately not heard once inside the villa.
Me and my family will defenatly return to this villa in the near future.

FABULOUS LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
This was a last-minute winter getaway and certainly lived up to expectations. Photographs do not do justice to the villa's location - the views are almost 360 degrees. Located below Mijas, it is somewhat protected at this time of year from the cold winds and weather further inland. The property itself was spotlessly clean, well-maintained and provided with everything we could possibly need. The evenings and some of the windy days were cold, so the huge supply of logs was necessary and much appreciated. The value of the owner living close by was influential in our choice, since from past experience we know that villa cleanliness and maintenance can be very patchy with absentee owners. In fact, whatever assistance we requested was provided within less than two hours, either by Amanda or Juan. They were indeed the perfect hosts - available but discreet, friendly and a mine of useful local information. And the endless supply of home-grown oranges was a special bonus! We would not hesitate to recommend the villa even for those with limited mobility - my 83 year old mother had no problems negotiating the space inside and out and with a little help could even have made it down the steps to the pool (though in January it is too cold to use it).

WONDERFUL VIEWS AND EXCELLENT FACILITIES.

  • 5 out of 5
We had a late holiday for 2 weeks. Wonderful views in all directions especially towards the sea with the coast of Africa visible on a clear day. House is very well equipped with lots of extra little touches provided by Amanda, including extra candles and tealights, matches, sewing kits and spare batteries. The bags of oranges (2 bags) were a nice touch. So was the plentiful supply of wood for the wood fire as there were a couple of cool evenings. Lots of outdoor terraces, equipment and a really nice pool though it was too cold for us to use at the end of November.

Amanda herself is a genuiely nice person and nothing is too much trouble for her. It is like visiting a friend as she is so helpful at advising places to go, restaurants etc. Amanda even printed off some itineries for us.

The drive up to the property was a little daunting at first but we soon got used to it. And it was worth it for the views and the privacy.

All in all we would highly recommend this property

FANTASTIC VILLA AND HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We are a family of five with 2 adults and children aged 9 - 15, we have just arrived back after a fantastic week, the weather was very sunny in the 30’s. The villa was very clean and all the little things that you normally have to buy i.e. washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, herbs, olive oil had all been provided. Amanda was very helpful and as we arrived on a Sunday had provided us with some food and drink. The view from the villa is amazing, better than in the photos as it goes over 180 degrees, the villa is set in a very tranquil area. We hired a car, Mijas is a 20 minute walk uphill but quicker on return, but well worth it with pretty white washed buildings and fantastic views, lovely tapas bars and restaurants and flamenco dancing on a Wednesday. We had the use of the gas BBQ which was put to good use. The children loved the good size pool. We have stayed in lots of villas but this is one of the best. Thank you Amanda and we hope to return in the future.

The property adjoins the tranquil and exclusive urbanizations of Rancho de la Luz and Alqueria and lies a couple of kilometres below the popular and picturesque village of Mijas with its varied range of restaurants, bars and shops. It is 7 kilometers from the town of Fuengirola and its beaches, 30 from the city of Málaga and 23 from Marbella. It is ideally located to visit Sevilla (2 1/2 hours by car), Granada and Cordoba (both 1 1/2 hours by car). Within 3 hours you can be in Morocco (car and hovercraft) and Gibraltar (1 1/2 hours by car). We have several golf courses within minutes drive from the villa: for example Alhaurin Golf and Mijas Golf are both only 15 minutes drive away. The international airport of Málaga is 20 minutes away by car. Good sand beaches are 15 minutes away and so are shopping centres with cinemas offering films in English. Several aquaparks, popular with children, are close by as are marinas.
