Situated in the Urbanization Buena Vista, cut into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, this exclusive well appointed villa offers accommodation in a tranquil setting, yet only a few minutes drive from the fantastic beaches and nightlife of Fuengirola and Marbella. It overlooks the Mediterranean (it is 400m above sea level) and the beautiful nearby town of Mijas, which is renowned as being one of the most beautiful white villages of Spain. There are three bedrooms which can sleep up to eight people (2 full size folding beds available), two bathrooms (one en-suite), an American kitchen with utility room and a large lounge which offers panoramic views of the breathtaking scenery overlooking the Mediterranean Sea towards Gibraltar. On a clear day, you can see the mountains of Africa! It has telephone, WIFI, air conditioning, TV, DVD, radio and CD player. Externally there is a patio Andaluz opening onto a broad terrace with a large floodlit pool (8x4m). Please note that this is a no smoking villa.

The pool and garden will be maintained once a week (normally Saturday). We have two cars for rent at very good rates, a VW Touran 5-7 seater and a Smart Forfour 5 seater automatic, both with aircon.
Andalucia: Local activities include swimming, golf (several courses are very near), tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, wind-surfing, water skiing, mountain biking, aquaparks, amusement parks, and other attractions. Andalucia has many places to visit for sightseeing and shopping: Malaga, Torremolinos, Marbella, Fuengirola, Gibraltar, Seville, Cordoba and Granada.
Sport: The Lew Hoad Tennis Club, horse riding, go karting and Mijas Aqua Park are all within 10 minutes drive. The beautiful ski resort of the Sierra Nevada is only 2 hours drive away (skiing from late November to end April).
My husband and I live in Horsham, West Sussex, not far from Gatwick airport which is handy for flying out to Malaga. We have two dogs and enjoy walking with them in the countryside. My husband is Spanish and I am English, and we have lived in Germany, so we can communicate with our European clients, although our French is very basic.
Julie Capas purchased this villa in 2002
Casa Pepe is ideally located to enjoy all that the Malaga area offers, from the busy coastal areas to the quieter inland countryside. We came across the villa by chance, saw the 'for sale' sign, had a look inside and decided that this would be our holiday home.
The views over the Mediterranean are spectacular and on clear days, you can see the Atlas mountains of Africa. We love sitting in the cool Patio Andaluz having a light meal or just relaxing in the shade.
Just to let you know that we all arrived home yesterday safe and sound after our most enjoyable and excellent holiday at Casa Pepe. We all had a brilliant two weeks, I would say our best holiday in many years. I have to say a big thank you to Jose Antonio and his wife for the warm and friendly greeting and making sure that we had all we needed, also to Brian who made sure the pool was in first class order during our stay. I hope that we left the villa to your complete satisfaction. Can I take this opportunity to thank you both for all the care taken with the booking and the super communication throughout. We may well wish to book again for next year.
Not our first time to Mijas but our first stay in Casa Pepe and we were not disappointed. The villa is extremely well maintained, beautiful gardens and had everything you could possibly need. Only minutes away from Mijas village meant lots of restaurants were available, Secret Garden being our favourite with plenty of boutique shops to wander around in the cooler evenings. Although there were only the 3 of us, the villa had a cosy feel, but could still accommodate a much larger party easily. The villa manager, Kay was excellent and a great asset to have. Thankfully we didn't need any assistance during our stay but knowing Kay was to hand if needed was very reassuring. Everything from the hired Smart car (provided by the villa), the villa itself and not forgetting the weather made for a much needed wonderful holiday. We would highly recommend Casa Pepe and hope to return ourselves soon.
We had a great late summer break at Casa Pepe, thank you. The transfer arrangements worked very well and we were delighted when we arrived at the villa to find such a nice airy property. The garden and pool were well looked after and Buena Vista is, of course, a lovely urbanization. We would have no hesitation in recommending your lovely villa to others and would hope one day perhaps to be back. Thank you again.
It overlooks the Mediterranean (it is 400m above sea level) and the beautiful nearby town of Mijas (5 minutes drive away), which is renowned as being one of the most beautiful white villages of Spain. Fuengirola and the beach are 10 mins by car and Marbella 20 mins. The nearest international airport is Malaga (10 miles). There are lots of full day excursions from the resorts of the Costa del Sol. The most exciting ones include visits to Granada, Seville, Cordoba or Ronda. Also very popular are shopping trips to Gibraltar and a day excursion to Tangier in Morocco on which you travel across the Straits of Gibraltar by high speed catamaran to Africa.
Other Activities: Aquaparks, amusement park
Golf: This entire area is a golfer's paradise with year-round sun and numerous championship golf courses within easy reach. Just inland from Mijas Costa you'll find La Cala North and South golf courses and the David Leadbetter Golf Academy. Also within easy driving distance are the famous courses of Valderrama, Torrequebrada, Alhaurin La Grande and Monte Mayor. There are nearly 60 courses in Andalucia and 30 are on the Costa del Sol.
Los Lagos Golf Course, Mijas, boasts two terrific designs laid out by Robert Trent Jones. Los Lagos, the original course built in the mid-1970s, is a flat, long championship course with waterhazards and large greens. Enjoyable for long hitters but also accommodating to those with a slice. Wide fairways with little rough means Mijas has become the most successful commercial course on the Costa del Golf.
