Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Alhaurín el Grande - Mariposa, Alhaurin el Grande

On a quiet country road between two lively towns with lots of restaurants & bars

A gorgeous, traditional villa with all the mod cons one would expect including wifi and air con. Two double en suite bedrooms and a twin bedroom which has it's own shower room very close. Lovely open plan reception area incorporating the lounge with British TV, kitchen with everything you could need for family meals and a dining area. Outside there is plenty of space to relax whether you prefer sunshine or shade, a covered dining area with gas barbeque and well maintained swimming pool with sun loungers. The pool is completely fenced in, can be viewed easily from the shaded terrace and outside dining area and is therefore much safer for families with children or weaker swimmers. There is a table tennis table in the downstairs garage to keep older children and adults entertained. The whole villa is surrounded by amazing grounds. Olive trees, almond trees and tropical plants make this your own private oasis. We even have a very friendly pet cat to play with. We will provide food if you wouldn't mind feeding her please

Beautiful, tranquil and spacious.... we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely impressed with the villa, it was beautiful, clean, very spacious and the pool & views were absolutely stunning. The cat "Beauty" was a pleasure to look after as she is so friendly, she only requires a bit of love, daily dried food and fresh water (we are cat lovers/owners anyway so it was our pleasure!)

We spent an evening in the town of Alhaurin el Grande where there were a couple of bars/restaurants, a supermarket and a variety of small shops. On an evening we ordered a taxi and managed to translate where we were (we only speak English). If you say near Finca Maroc and stand out on the road you will be fine as they cannot see the villa very well from the road and there isn't a signpost for it. The nearest local shop is a couple of miles away (Alhaurin el Grande), this wasn't a problem for us as we hired a car from the airport (A bit of advice... DO NOT USE Record Go through "Do You Do Spain" as many including us had horrific experiences with them, some waiting 2 hours for their car and us waiting 40 mins to return it!)

A taxi to Alhaurin el Grande (small closest local town) cost 10 euros. A taxi to Alhaurin de la Torre was 15 euros; it was extremely classy here with a beautiful square in the main town with lots of restaurants and a few bars. It cost 40 euros to Torremolinos where there is lots of nightlife, shops, a water park and lovely beaches.

Anneliese (The property manager) was a pleasure to deal with. Her communication was always prompt, she ensured that we arrived with ease (even meeting us to guide us to the villa). Anneliese really made the whole experience as stress free, enjoyable and informative as possible.

The cost of letting the villa was very reasonable and suited me perfectly being a Student Nurse. We absolutely loved Villa Mariposa and cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing such an informative review. I am so happy you enjoyed your time here. Your comments on Alhaurin el Grande having a couple of bars made me smile as accordingly to Trip Advisor there are 45 bars and restaurants. I actually think there are more but you need to come back many times to find them all! What a great excuse to return! What a good tip to explain to the taxi companies that the villa is next to Finca Maroc. I will write it in the information folder in the villa for future guests. Thank you. See you again soon!

Beautiful villa set in picturesque surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this villa. We were looking for a quiet vacation and the villa was situated in quiet and picturesque surroundings. The villa was also very well equipped, with a beautiful terrace and a swimming pool overlooking the countryside.

There are supermarkets and a market nearby, as well as many good restaurants to choose from in Alhaurin el Grande.

Finally, the Property Manager (Anneliese) gave us a warm welcome and even joined us on the way to guide us to the villa.

We highly recommend the villa.


Nous avons eu du bon temps dans cette villa. Nous étions à la recherche de calme pour nos vacances et la villa pour est bien isolée calme et tranquille, situé dans un cadre pittoresque avec vue sur la campagne. Elle est également très bien équipée, avec une belle terrasse, un barbecue et une piscine.

Il y a des supermarchés et un marché à proximité, ainsi que de nombreux bons restaurants à choisir à Alhaurin el Grande.

Pour finir, notre hôtesse nous a très bien accueillis en venant même nous rejoindre sur la route pour nous guider.

Nous recommandons vivement la villa.

Wonderful and calm residence

  • 5 of 5

Our family, and friends, stayed in this beautiful place for several summers. from the very first time we were astonished by the warm welcome of the owners of the property and the scenic surroundings. We are a family of four and stayed from 3 - 4 weeks at the house the last many summers and also had visitors while staying. The house is well equipped and very spacious. The private pool, the olive trees, the flowers and the views make it a perfect place to have a holiday with your family. Old and young!! The house is situated convenient for both shopping (Malaga, Puerto Banus) and in Alhaurin el Grande the supermarkets are great for grocery, fish, meat and vegetables. There is lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood. We also enjoyed the many birds and other animals we saw close to the house. The rural feeling! We would recommend this house highly. We stayed in Spain every summer for the last 12 years and this place is the best we stayed at.

Great holiday base

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 weeks, end of January to the beginning of February. This is a spacious, comfortable, well equipped villa, set in a pleasant location with lovely views. The property has a beautiful swimming pool and extensive terraced areas. It is a short drive to the nearest town where there is a good supermarket and a weekly market. Also, plenty of restaurants can be found here. We found it a good base to visit the coastal towns with their excellent beaches as well as many scenic areas inland. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay here. The villa certainly is in a great place. So many guests are pleasantly surprised at how quiet and rural the location is yet only ten minutes in the car and you are in either Alhaurin de la Torre or Alhaurin el Grande. Hope to see you again soon.

The villa is in the stunning countryside, surrounded by olive and almond trees but on a good road between the lively towns of Alhaurin el Grande and Alhaurin de la Torre both of which have a great selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and plenty of supermarkets and food shops. Only minutes from Lauro Golf. In around 20 minutes you can be on the beach at the coastal resort of Torremolinos and a little further to Benalmadena, Fuengirola and then Marbella and Puerto Banus. A great base from which to explore this fabulous area.
