Overview

About the property

Large villa with private heated pool and spacious grounds ideal for large groups

This private detached villa with 8 double/twin spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, offers generous living areas and grounds, ideal for large groups and families. On the lower level is a large private pool (which can be heated), surrounded by an extended sun terrace and mature gardens, with fig, mango, guava, pomegranate, orange and lemon trees. Also situated on this level are four of the 8 bedrooms and the large recreation room with games table and extra fridge's and freezer. On the upper level is the main house with four further bedrooms set over 3 floors. There is large open plan living area. A spacious lounge with freeview TV, fully equipped modern kitchen, and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Two bedrooms are joined to form an individual suite, with a large bathroom and private terrace. The villa is in a peaceful elevated location, with fantastic sea and mountain views. Just outside the resort town of Torre del Mar, only 5 minutes from the beach and 45 minutes from Malaga.

We have an extensive knowledge of this area having lived and worked here for many years. In our opinion the best supermarket is 'Mercadona' situated just on entering the town of Torre del mar. The nearest bars and restaurants are in the town as well or there is a typical Spanish bar/restaurant in Almayate (next village) called 'Pepe Molina's'. Here you can often see the local bulls been shooed (yes they still use bulls to work the fields). There are numerous banks in Torre but they are only open Monday to Friday from 8.30am till 2pm. There are plenty of cash points doted around the town. We can inform you of many leisure activities and sports and inside the villa is a booklet of information. There is a water park only 10 min drive away but we recommend the water park in Torromelinos due to it's size and facilities. We are always happy to recommend places. The Alhambra palace (home of Henry VIII's first wife) is around 1 hrs drive away but you do have to book tickets well in advance.

The beach is only 5 min drive from the villa. The beach is located in Torre del Mar which boast the longest promenade in Malaga. There are many beach bars and restaurants and the town is very typically Spanish. The beaches are clean and you will find free sports and exercise equipment to use and also ping pong tables, volley ball courts and children's play area's. There is plenty of parking in and around the beach area. There is also a small marina at the far end of the town called Caleta.

There are 2 golf course's within 20 min drive. The first is Baviera which is less than 10 min drive from the villa and is a well maintained 18 hole golf course. The second is Anoreta which is 20 min drive from the villa and again is a well maintained golf course having amazing views of the mountains and sea.

The main town of Torre del Mar is just 5 min in a car and not only has the beach but also all the shops, supermarkets restaurants and night life. Nerja is just 30 min drive east of the vi

Sol y Nieve is in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just 90 min drive from the villa. This ski resort successfully hosted the 1996 World Ski Championships. The Sierra Nevadas can offer a long season, from early December through to early May, and with snow cannons covering 32km of piste, you are almost guaranteed good snow. With 87km of piste: 11 green, 36 blue, 35 red and 5 black runs, served by a good network of 24 lifts with a current capacity of nearly 48,000 passengers /hr, there should be enough to keep intermediates happy for a few days.

There is also plenty to do off the slopes. In the small resort town of Pradollano, non-skiers can perfect their spins on the ice rink or relax in the Turkish steam bath at the Montebajo Sports Club. On a fine day, take the lift onto the mountain and relax on the sunny terrace of one of the many restaurants, while admiring the spectacular views that stretch across the Mediterranean to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

About Suzanne Dave

We have lived here in Spain for 12 years and have 2 son's. We lived in the villa for 8 of those years. My husband is a chemical engineer and I myself was a pharmaceutical sale representative. We were originally from Cheshire.

Suzanne Dave purchased this villa in 2004

Why Suzanne Dave chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We brought the villa due to its size and layout. We ran taylor made activity holidays for groups and families and speacialized in mountain bike holidays. I myself not only took part in the activities but cooked breakfast, supplied packed lunches and cooked a 3 course evening meal every night. Just as the business was taking off I fell pregnant with my 2nd son so due to me being the backbone of the business I was no longer able to mange this. We decided to try holiday rentals for the property as it was to large for just a family of 4 to live in. We have made so many improvements over the years to try to make the villa just what holiday makers wish for when they are away. We have totally modernized the villa but without it losing its charm.

What makes this villa unique

The location of the villa is in a quiet estate just outside the main town of Torre del Mar so allows groups and families peace and quiet but also having the town in easy reach for when you wish to eat out or enjoy the night life. The way the villa is set out means that the guests always have somwhere to escape if they want some "me time". There is always enough space around the tables for ALL guests. The views are wonderful from the garden and terraces. The pool is a fantastic size for a private pool. The property is not overlooked by anyone so allowing you real privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Verified by TripAdvisor - We have had an absolutely great time at the villa.

Upon arrival I was happy to see that the property even exceeded the impression we got in advance.

We stayed there with 2 sets of grandparents, 2 sets of parents and 5 kids, and still we found the villa spacious enough for us - making it possible to play ping-pong on one of the terraces while others could chill by the pool reading a good book without being disturbed.

The property is well maintained, and with all its facilities it is easy to have a really good time:) We liked in particular the pool side facilities with the pool house and the well maintained garden. If someting not optimal should be mentioned, the kitchen is a bit small as it is today to socialize while preparing food, there are not room for more than two people at a time.

We rented cars all of us during our stay to have easy access to the beach and the town. We loved the town and the beach promenade, as it had many activities going on for the kids in the evenings, cinemas at the each, small tivoli by the tower, and lots of playgrounds.

The owners of the villa has been very professional and easy to communicate with all the time. We recommend the villa and we look forward to coming back here sometime.

Notes:

Downstairs there is a large patio which surrounds the swimming pool, which has many sun loungers. There is also a large built in barbecue. The pool is a large kidney shape (size), so all guests can enter together. The pool can be heated at your request and incurs an extra charge of £150 per week. This villa is situated in a very quiet area with views of both the mountains and the beach. It has high walls surrounding it with only one keypad access gate (code changed weekly) which makes it very safe for children. Not been over looked by any other villa's and with plenty of parking on the road outside which is only used by a handful of people, makes it the perfect place to stay and relax.

Perfect villa for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Where can I start?

Everything from my initial contact with Su, to booking, arrival and the holiday itself was perfect!

Su went out of her way to give me as much information and help as she could with booking our family Christmas holiday.

As we were arriving on Christmas Day, Su recommended that I did an online shop with Mercadona, which I did and had delivered on Christmas Eve. Su very kindly put the shopping away, so when we arrived all we had to do was prepare our Christmas Day BBQ! And open the Cava!

The villa is very spacious, well maintained and perfect for large family groups. Everyone can have their own space if they want it, and the outside dining area and living spaces, were perfect for sitting down together to celebrate Christmas and play party games. It was just perfect!

We also loved the walk down into Torre del Mar, which has a good variety of shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend the Argentinian restaurant El Fogon, they served the best steaks we have ever tasted anywhere, and is very reasonably priced.

Su was very helpful answering calls and queries before and during our stay, which was very much appreciated. We would highly recommend booking this villa and would love to go again one day. Thank you Su and Sam.

This villa is amazing

  • 5 of 5

We got married in Spain on September 2016 and spend 8 days with 15 adults and 2 kids at the villa. Beautiful place with certainly nice views. At pool area you can find both shade and sunny spots and there is enough deck chairs to everybody. Lower level rooms are nice and quiet and the main building has everything you need; nice rooms and well equipment kitchen and barbeque. This place really made out holiday perfect. Villa is a bit far away from the city Torre Del Mar (we walked to the city only once), but with a car it’s really easy access to everywhere both TorreDelMar and Malaga highway. At the city you have lots of nice restaurants and cafes and long sandy beach with playarea for kids (in case you are traveling with ones). It was easy and nice to make arrangements with the owner Su. Hope I could come back here someday. Good value for money!

Prachtig huis. 4 kamers onder en 4 boven garandeert privacy.

Heerlijk verwarmd zwembad eind oktober.

Auto noodzakelijk. Leven in Andalusie is financieel en qua weer erg

prettig.

Breautiful villa - perfect stay for big family

  • 5 of 5

Virkelig dejligt hus, hvor alt bare fungerede.

Rigtig god plads for en stor familie med mange børn. Dejligt med have i flere niveau, det gav plads til alle - selvom vi var rigtig mange (14 personer).

Store fine og lyse værelser - desværre var sengene alt for bløde til vores smag.

Huset har en fin udsigt over området.

Det ligger ca 2,5 km fra Torre del Mar. I oktober hvor vi besøgte huset, virkede byen lidt trist og kedelig - men den havde et fint udvalg af supermarkeder mv.

Kommunikationen med udlejer fungere over forventning. Vi fik altid lynhurtig svar på vores mange spørgermål.

Jeg kan virkelig anbefale denne dejlige villa.

Really Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent villa. We were an extended family of 18 with three very young kids and a few friends. The owners met us on arrival (despite us being quite late) and they were thorough and helpful in advising what to do, what not to do, local eateries, shops etc.

The villa and garden had plenty of room for all of us, and enough areas for people to have space when needed - the pool area, table tennis area, outdoor dining, and the villa itself - so even with 18 people, it didn't feel crowded.

The villa accommodated our large group well, with enough kitchen and dining stuff, and enough chairs, table space etc (and two high chairs). In August it was pretty warm, so we always ate outside and made use of the BBQ on a couple of evenings.

Internet access in the main villa building was good. Satellite TV gave us a few UK channels.

The villa and garden faces south west, and you get good views with the sea visible a couple of miles south. Gardeners appeared later in the week and did the grass, tidied up, topped up the pool etc. All very efficient.

There is a good Mercadona supermarket in Torres del Mar - probably 10 mins drive (tip, don't buy carrier bags, buy a roll of handled bin-liners - you'll need them).

A few days into our holiday, the kitchen tap failed. We emailed the owners and they came out, assessed the problem, arrived next morning with a new tap. They also helped when we were looking to hire a wheelchair for a day. Great response and support.

Excellent overall. Definitely a good villa to hire if you comprise a large group.

Car: recommended

The main town of Torre del Mar is just 5 min in a car and not only has the beach but also all the shops, supermarkets restaurants and night life. Nerja is just 30 min drive east of the villa with the famous caves to look around and also many more beaches. Granada is just over 1 hr drive away with the Alhambra palace and famous tapas bars. Malaga city is just 30 min drive West and is a very historic city with a huge variety of shops and restaurants.

The villa is just 45 min / 30km east of Malaga Airport, just off the main coast road. Car hire is highly recommended due to the location of the villa on a small hill and access to the town, otherwise taxis can be used and most of them do speak English. There is a large taxi rank in the centre of the town.

Other Activities: Canoeing, hand gliding, rock climbing

Golf: There are 2 golf course's within 20 min drive. The first is Baviera which is less than 10 min drive from the villa and is a well maintained 18 hole golf course. The second is Anoreta which is 20 min drive from the villa and again is a well maintained golf course having amazing views of the mountains and sea.

Ski: Sol y Nieve is in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just 90 min drive from the villa. This ski resort successfully hosted the 1996 World Ski Championships. The Sierra Nevadas can offer a long season, from early December through to early May, and with snow cannons covering 32km of piste, you are almost guaranteed good snow. With 87km of piste: 11 green, 36 blue, 35 red and 5 black runs, served by a good network of 24 lifts with a current capacity of nearly 48,000 passengers /hr, there should be enough to keep intermediates happy for a few days.

There is also plenty to do off the slopes. In the small resort town of Pradollano, non-skiers can perfect their spins on the ice rink or relax in the Turkish steam bath at the Montebajo Sports Club. On a fine day, take the lift onto the mountain and relax on the sunny terrace of one of the many restaurants, while admiring the spectacular views that stretch across the Mediterranean to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
