Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Malaga area (Costa del Sol) - Vista del Mar

Perfect for relaxing by the pool while the children play safely nearby..

This is a new villa built to exacting standards with a contemporary finish but set in the rural olive groves of La Alqueria. The views down the valley, across the mountains and down to the sea go on for miles, ever changing in the sunshine, always beautiful. A total 12,000 square metres of land are securely fenced in for your own enjoyment.

5 bedrooms in total make this a wonderful villa for a large family or group, sleeping up to 12 plus a cot or two. The master suite is huge with a king size bed, sofa bed and patio doors out to the terrace with stunning views down the Guadalhorce valley to the sea. The en suite bathroom is gorgeous. Bedroom 2 is a double with a beautiful bathroom just opposite. There is the ideal space in this room for a cot should you require it. Bedroom 3 is also a double, with the family bathroom right next to it. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are both twins with one bed neatly hidden away under another should only one guest wish to use each of these rooms. Both of these rooms have double patio doors, which lock securely if you are worried about children going out unattended, leading out on the upstairs terrace. An amazing place to relax and take in the views.

Downstairs there is a wonderfully equipped kitchen with a comfortable TV area at one end leading to the dining area. Round the corner is a large lounge with big sofas and armchairs. There is also a children’s playroom off the kitchen or a den for adults to escape to! It has a Playstation 3 set up so bring your own games and dvds!

Outside, there are two terraces to the front of the house, upstairs and downstairs. A superb terrace opposite the house offers the same amazing views through the countryside down to the sea and across to the mountains. Snow can be seen on the Sierra Nevada in the winter! At the back of the villa is a patio with two sets of steps leading up to the swimming pool garden. This area is completely fenced in with locking gates therefore making it much safer for families with children or non swimmers. The 10 metre long kidney shaped pool is salt water which also has a little stream with feature fountains. There are sun loungers round the pool on the lawn area and in the shade on the terraces.

The outside dining room is really special. It has a pizza oven, barbecue, bar area, sink and even an extra dishwasher! There is a changing room and additional bathroom here too. The lights out here ensure it is a popular place to be late into the evenings. The children’s playground has a wooden climbing tower with slide and still leaves lots of space on the lawn for running around!

Please note that the last three minutes of your journey to the villa is on an unmade up track, although extremely good by local standards, it's probably best not to hire a low slung sports car!

Magnificent and well maintained Villa! Must stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous villa as part of a a School history trip and our students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The villa was located in a nice, quiet and rural area (not too far from town) and the amenities provided with the villa exceeded all expectations. The students were occupied with the swimming pool and games room throughout the four day stay and it was a very homely atmosphere overall.

The villa itself was very clean and well maintained and the rooms were very spacious, especially the bedrooms. The views around the villa were breathtaking too.

We would definitely stay here again if we ever visited Malaga again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, I am delighted you enjoyed the villa. In turn, I would definitely recommend your school to other villa owners who may be wary of renting to a school party. The boys were polite and enthusiastic about the villa and left it in a very clean and tidy state. A credit to the school.

Spacious and luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we have just had at this beautiful villa! To start with, the booking was easy and Anneliese helpfully answered any queries we had before we arrived. When we arrived, Anneliese gave us perfect directions and met us en route from the airport to make it all a breeze. The villa is stunning and perfectly clean. It is along a rural track, but our hire cars were perfectly fine (Focus and Auris).

The playroom was so lovely for our two young daughters and our friends' little boy - there were lots of toys and books to entertain them. There were also pool inflatables and outdoor toys for them to enjoy.

The stunning kitchen has everything you could possibly need (including plastic cups and plates and cutlery which were helpful for the children).

In short, I highly recommend this villa for a holiday in the Malaga area and I wish I were there right now instead of back at work writing this review :0) Hopefully we will return in the not too distant future....

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue given that we have stayed here on two occasions, firstly for a week in October 2014 and again for a fortnight in August 2015.

The property is not too far from the airport, yet far enough away, and is central to lots of great locations and attractions and there is something for everyone. A car is an essential.

The descriptions and photographs are accurate and if anything the property is even better than it looks. It is well maintained and clean and inviting. For us it has a real homely feel.

We can’t say enough great things about Anneliese who is efficient, friendly, sincere and passionate about the property and the locality. Knowing the area as well as she does she has lots of great recommendations and all you need do is ask.

We loved the La Alhambra is Granada, Malaga Segway Tours in Malaga and The Chamber of Secrets in Torremolinos to name a few.

We would recommend this villa to anyone and everyone but should it far exceeds your needs, would definitely recommend a stay locally.

We have so many fabulous memories of our stays here. Without a doubt, we will be back for more!

Wow! PERFECT HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa, pictures don't do it justice. We were a large family group of 6 adults and 4 children aged 14 mths to 13 years and we all had an amazing holiday at this fantastic villa, so much so our grandson cried on our last night stating he wanted to stay and live at the villa! The views are stunning and very peaceful. A car is necessary but it's not far from shops etc. The whole process of renting this villa was made easy by Annneliese, thank you. We had planned to visit many places but ended up only leaving the villa to shop and visit Mijas! We hope to return in the future, home from home.

"Perfect "

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous week at this wonderful villa. We are a large family group and it catered for everyone. The listing and photos on the website doesn't do it justice, it was clean, modern and extremely comfortable. The pool area is great, we spent all our days there, brilliant having bbq, pizza oven, fridge and dishwasher at your fingertips. The children thrived in the lovely weather and pool. Anneliese is great and very friendly and accommodating. A car IS necessary to enjoy the surroundings area, but only a short drive to shops and major resorts. Very peaceful location with beautiful views, looking forward to our next stay here. Thank you for a wonderful family holiday.

Excellent villa, another fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned to this stunning villa for a second time and it was just as perfect as last time if not better. Anneliese was a great help as always making the booking process simple and on arrival guided us with where to go she also sorted any issues out the same day, amazing service thank you Annelise. We again made great use of the pool and outside BBQ area with pizza oven dining here most evenings. Steve the gardener recommended a great day out to mijas which was I would recommend to others, it's a lovely village with donkey and horse carriage rides, amazing views and a lovely castle to visit along with shops, bars and restaurants. We also went to watch the football in alhaurin de la torre centre at Baranda bar with an amazing atmosphere from the locals especially when Barcelona won, the owner of the bar made us a table for 10 right infront of the tv screens they had put outside. We also went into torremolinos and went to the marina to watch a dolphin and sea lion show in benamalena. The villa really is a perfect location set in the mountains away but only a short distance from so many great places to visit. We would recommend this villa to anyone as you won't be dissapointed

Owner's Response: I am delighted you went to Mijas, I love it there, the views along the coast from the Sierra Nevada to Gibraltar and if you are lucky Africa, are stunning. Did you go to the Chocolate Factory? If not, that is yet another thing to come back for!

La Alqueria started out as a 3rd century BC hill fort and flourished for a while under the Romans. It now has a population of around 500 people. There are two popular bars, one of which, La Porrita does particularly good food. There is a convenience store and an equestrian centre, which is open to the public for riding excursions and lessons.

5 minutes drive away is Alhaurin de la Torre, an affluent town with all the modern amenities you could possibly require, set around an older, traditional centre. The avenues are lined with palm trees and the roundabouts adorned with modern art, there are two free outside gyms, a wonderful Japanese garden and numerous parks and facilities to enjoy all within the town, The huge selection of good restaurants, bars and cafes will leave you spoilt for choice. The town of Alhaurin el Grande is also only 10 minutes away with equally as many facitlities.

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. The new cruise liner port is cosmopolitan and smart.

This villa is perfectly located to be used as a base from which to explore the numerous wonderful attractions of Andalucia. Within two hours drive of the beautiful cities of Granada, Ronda, Seville and Cordoba.

Even though this gorgeous villa is tucked away in the olive groves of the countryside, at the end of a track with no passing traffic, it is easily accessible, the beaches of Torremolinos are only 20 minutes away and Lauro Golf course is less than five minutes drive away. Dozens more golf courses are within an hours drive.
