About Dominique

I enjoy meeting people and sharing cultures, and will make your stay easier , allowing you to know about the area facilities and turistical interest, restaurants and events. I do like trekking in the mountain every day.

Dominique purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Dominique chose Malaga area (Costa del Sol)

This place is very well situated, near Málaga, the airport is 20 mn away, the sea 15 mn, and the house is at the foot of the Jabalcuza mountain. There is also a supermarket ' Mercadona' very close, with everything you need for your stay. A strategic location that allows you to go quickly towards any direction without losing time.

What makes this cottage unique

The two patios ( tenant's and ownwer's visible from pool) are fantastic and typical of Andalusia. The pool is very agreeable and freshening when the heat is there. The area is very quiet and secure. Quick access to the beach, to Málaga for shopping and visiting and the access to the motorway is only 10 mn from the apartment.

We would come back!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 12 days at this nice and cosy apartment. Everything was clean and nicely decorated. Our landlady was very friendly and helpful. She had a lot of interesting information about Malaga and the whole area around. The kitchen is very well equipped and there even was a washing machine! We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the apartment in any case.

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely place a couple of months ago.

fantastic place, very friendly and helpful land lady.

It is within a walking distance to the super market and local shops.

Nice and safe neighbourhood but definitely a car is needed to go to the nearest beach.

We had a great time.

It was a good place with a good price.

Highly recommended.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We drove from Seville after starting from Granada. This was the end of our Andalusia sightseeing and all we (my wife and 2 yr old daughter) wanted to do was relax on the beach. This place was ideal for the following reasons:

- Its 10 - 15 minute drive from the beach (Torremolinos) in a quite location on a slope of a mountain in a residential development. Quiet, peaceful and away from noisy, touristy places

- Having your own transportation is necessary for this location. A supermarket (Mercado) is 2 minutes drive for convenience

- The ground floor apartment is part of a bigger house / chalet. The owner lives on the floor above but the construction is such that you have complete privacy

- The modern apartment clean and airy with a large living room and fully equipped kitchen, a modern/ large bathroom and a nice patio

- The swimming pool is a great addition as it’s only shared with the owners. It’s great to take the steam off after a day at the beach. Our daughter loved the whole experience.

- We always managed to find a parking spot on the street opposite the entrance of the apartment

- Finally, the owner is very professional, multilingual and a good host. She arranged a high chair and baby cot for our comfort and ease during the stay

Overall a very comfortable and joyful stay and I would highly recommend to anyone

Perfect place for a relaxed stay!

  • 5 of 5

The appartment with patio and use of the swimmingpool are exactly as described. The bed is very comfortable and an extra double bed can be created in the sitting area. All is very well maintained, taken care of and clean. The appartment feels like home with all nice art on the wall. Kitchen provides everything you could need. Dominique is very quick in her replies while making the arrangements and is a perfect and enthousiastic host. She makes you feel very welcome. The appartment is in a quiet street with free parking space, a good supermarket 2 streets away and Alhaurin provides some nice restaurants at 2,5 - 3 km. We went there by foot, however, also free parking for the car nearby is available if you prefer not to walk. All important cities are at good driving distance. Although driving time might seem long to Sevilla for example, motorways are quiet without much traffic which makes a relaxed trip. Great hiking possibilities nearby, and ofcourse the beach at 15 minutes drive, although we did not go there. This time we spent 9 days, but we should come back for sure, as there's so much to see and do. And if we will, for sure it will be to Dominiques' place. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Dear guests, I am really happy that your stay was perfect and relaxing and that you felt at home in my place, as it is exactly that way that I want my visitors to feel . And, on your next stay, we'll make you discover new amazing places and also the subtleties of Andalusian cooking, such as the "salmorejo" from Córdoba... Málaga has an awful lot of interesting buildings, botanical gardens ( Jardines de la Concepción ) and museums ( 5 of international class ), plus the unavoidable Alcazaba from the year 1030 and also the antique Roman theatre at its foot. Not to forget the Picasso house where he was born and lived until his eighth birthday, etc... Remain to be visited too the gorgeous white villages of Frigiliana, near Nerja caves, and Mijas pueblo. Remain to be discovered the incredibly blue lakes of El Chorro, together with its imposing gorges "Caminito del Rey", which was just made accessible to public and is said to be one of the most dangerous in the world. At the end of the trekking, a comforting meal at the local restaurant with its star speciality of aubergines in "miel de caña", with fantastic views on the turquoise blue lake where one can enjoy a totally free swim in limpid water..Just a small paradise! Remain to be discovered an awful lot of good things!!! Thank you for your nice comment which shows how well you spent your holiday.We say in French " A refaire!" Kind regards. Dominique

Großartig!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten 12 wunderschöne Tage im Alhaurin de la Torre! Die Wohnung ist absolut empfehlenswert, sehr sauber und alles in gutem Zustand! Lage ist sehr ruhig, ein Auto braucht man auf jeden Fall. Lebensmittelladen in der Nähe. Die Vermieterin Dominique ist sehr lieb und hilfsbereit (viele Tips für Ausflüge, etc.), genauso ihr Sohn:)).

Liebe Dominique, danke für die tolle Zeit! Wir kommen wieder!
