Lovely little villa in a great location

4 of 5
I spent a week here in July with my family, 4 adults and 1 child. Very easy to find from the airport and in a great location with a supermarket 5 minutes drive away and the cost at Torremalinos about 20 minutes or so away. The grounds are lovely with a fantastic pool area with great mountain views and a fruit orchard with more plum trees than you can count! The house itself was more than adequate although I did think the kitchen a bit on the small side, but it had everything that you could want. Beds where comfortable. I cant speak for the lounge area or the TV facilities because we didn't use it all week, choosing to spend all our time under the covered porch. All in all we really enjoyed our stay there. The only downside during our stay was that i think there was a wasps nest, maybe in the fruit orchard as there was a large number around all of the time and both my wife and grandson got stung. Also the little "yappy" dogs across the road, yapping all day and most of the night, although i do understand these are outside of the owners control. I do feel that if the porch was enclosed in a fine mesh, this would help reduce the wasps/flys, particularly at meal times. With the wasps gone and if someone would "neck" the dogs opposite, I would happily revisit this property again

Amazing villa with a stunning view.

5 of 5
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Paradise Villa and cannot thank Lynne & Alan enough for giving us the opportunity to stay in their home. The villa is equipped with everything you could ever need for a relaxing stress free holiday. Lynne and Alan have thought of everything and provide you with so much information of the local area from shops, recommended restaurants to doctors and emergency contacts. The villa is of a very high standard and we must say that the pictures on the website do not do the villa justice - it was much more than we had expected and the stunning views are an absolute bonus. We would highly recommend Paradise Villa and certainly intend returning in the future.
