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.
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!
