The villa has everything you would need for a comfortable stay and then some. Kids particularly loved the pool, high speed internet, smart tv and ping pong table. Great outdoor area with covered section, second kitchen and bbq. The area around is peaceful and the villa is set in its own olive grove with stunning mountain views. Only a few minutes drive from Alhaurin de la Torre and 15 minutes from Malaga and the coast. The owners were really pleasant and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We look forward to our next visit!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Juan Daniel is the most helpful owner I have ever met ( I use villa companies 4-5 times per year ) he is on hand to assist with any requests and needs. My daughter took a giant inflatable unicorn that would have taken us the full week to inflate, I contacted Daniel and told him of the situation, not only did he bring me an air compressor but helped to inflate and carried it round to the pool for my daughter. The property is of a very high standard and stunning, we spent the week enjoying the sun in the comfy relaxing area of the gardens and then enjoyed the log burning fire in the main living room at night. Everything we needed to enjoy our holiday with the feeling of home comforts was there. I don't think Daniel could improve the villa even if he tried. Thanks so much for the most relaxing holiday I have ever had mate.. if only all owners were like you holidays would be much more fun and comfortable. 🌞 P.s. The local cats visited us each day to say hello and have a little munch, that made my daughter so happy as she loves cats and the local cats were friendly and well behaved, it helped her miss our own family pets a little less. 👍⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
