About the property

Luxury 4-bed villa with stunning views set in 2-acres of peaceful countryside

La Huerta Vieja is a fabulous luxury 4-bed villa located on the outskirts of Alhaurin El Grande (~5 mins drive from the centre), on a completely private and tranquil plot surrounded by beautiful countryside views.

The property itself is situated in extensive mature gardens containing 100's of exotic, tropical plants & trees, numerous orange, lemon & pomegranite trees, and topped off with a professionally installed 9-hole putting green, complete with sand bunker and boules court!

You immediately get the ‘wow’ factor as the electric gates open to reveal a handsome 2 storey villa with first floor wrap-around terrace, and a fully terraced dining & entertainment area - the perfect place to relax and unwind with uninterrupted views of the orchards, mountains and the large pool with pool-house and outdoor kitchen.

You enter the property through large traditional dark-wood Andalucian doors and are immediately taken into an enclosed entrance hall with fitted storage. You're then in a huge modern living space which contains a central fireplace and patio doors onto the terrace, and which flows elegantly into an open-plan kitchen with fitted units and granite work surfaces. Also on the ground floor is a guest bathroom with shower, and a king-size bedroom with an en-suite containing a large bath and shower, fitted wardrobes, and it's own patio doors onto the terrace affording fantastic mountain views.

The sweeping marble staircase leads up to a grand master bedroom with king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom (again with bath and shower), 2 further double bedrooms (one of which which contains small 135cm double bunk beds - please note if you are a group of 10 adults!), and a substantial family bathroom. All of the upstairs bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, and all bar one room upstairs has access to a private elevated terrace with amazing views towards the town of Alhaurin El Grande.

About John & Louisa Brown

Louisa is a Deputy Head Teacher and John is an executive for a Cyber Security software company. They are both from the Midlands, and live in a picturesque Warwickshire village with their 2 children, one of whom is now studying away at University. They visit the villa 4-5 times a year, and are learning Spanish in anticipation of eventually spending UK winters relaxing in Spain ;o)

John & Louisa Brown purchased this villa in 2016

Why John & Louisa Brown chose Alhaurín el Grande

"We have owned property in Benalmadena since 2003, & have been holidaying in this part of the Andalusian coast for many years. We decided that we wanted a more substantial property that offered peace and tranquillity in the Spanish hills, but was still close to a busy town, and importantly gave us the scope chance to put our stamp on it. As soon as we arrived at the gates we instantly fell in love, and by the time we’d explored the first floor wrap-around terrace, and taken in the uninterrupted views of the orchards, mountains and the large pool with pool-house and outdoor kitchen, we were hooked and knew that once we'd modernized it to our high standards, it would be the perfect family retreat in the stunning Andalusian countryside. We made an offer later that day, and by early Jan ’17 we’d collected the keys and began the refurbishment.

We knocked through some walls downstairs to create a light, bright and open living space, and have installed a new ground floor terrace area. We have re-decorated the whole house, sourced contemporary furniture from the UK, Scandanavia & Italy, added an indoor/outdoor sound system, and have built a new store-room behind the pool house. Our housekeepers are an amazing couple who have looked after the property since it was built in 2005. Reme cleans, and Diego looks after the maintenance side of things, ensuring that the 2 acres of mature landscaped gardens & orchards, containing 100's of exotic, tropical plants & trees, numerous orange, lemon & pomegranite trees, and topped off with a professionally installed 9-hole putting green, complete with sand bunker and boules court, stays in fantastic condition."

What makes this villa unique

It's less than 30 minutes drive from the airport & beaches, and only 5-10 minutes from the nearest town, Alhaurin el Grande, and yet it feels like you're a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Whilst this is the ideal place to unwind and relax with friends and/or family, it's also been renovated to try and create the ultimate entertaining complex in the sun.

A fabulous villa. Clean, modern and spacious,set in beautiful gardens with outstanding views.

  • 5 of 5

We shared the villa with our Canadian relatives, there were 3 couples, but ample space for us all. We spent our time there, in and out of the lovely pool, playing table tennis and enjoying drinks and lovely food cooked on the barbe-cue.There was a susperb choice of sunbeds loungers and even a couple of hammocks to soak up the rays. With fantastic entertainment inside, we could watch, tv, films and listen to our favourite music in the evenings. With the town only a 10 minute drive away we were never short of supplies or restaurants and bars.

The villa is also ideally situated for day trips. With Gibraltar less than 2 hours away by car we spent a day there with very excited Canadians. We also took in the sights and charm of Mijas and Puerto Benus and the resorts of Benalmadena and Torremolinas.However the favourite part of our stay was relaxing in peace and quiet by the pool with cold drinks and warm sunshine.Just heaven!

Keith and Cherry. Coventry

Amazing experience 5 star! Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we had! The villa pictures do not do this place justice! The owners have spent a fortune on the villa and the quality shines through. This is a 5 star Villa! I have high standards and this over exceeded . Everything you need is catered for. Surround sound by the pool! Table tennis. Everything is so clean and brand new. The service was brilliant. We have booked for next year it was so good.

Happy days 🌞

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa in a very private country location . We loved the silent times of day. Waking in the morning to the wonderful views.

Everything is as described so no disappointments. Quality furnishings, good beds, well equipped. Everything you could want. We loved every day and would highly recommend it for couples or families.

Worth mentioning, if you want to explore the area car hire is essential. Excellent outdoor BBQ area and pool we used it a lot, only ate out occasionally.

Wonderful Villa for families or friends

  • 5 of 5

WOW,! We had a wonderful time at the villa, great location just a short taxi to the centre of Alhurin El Grande with its bustling bars and restaurants. Very well catered for in terms of amenities, big swimming pool, table tennis, pitch and put , many sun beds and hammocks and huge BBQ outside. Inside each bedroom had a view and most had access to large balcony, good AC and en suites and bathrooms. Well catered for kitchen, all IT mod cons, we can't wait to return! Many thanks!

Stunning,relaxing, family safe villa 😊

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa! Everything we were looking for in a villa! Very clean, everything top notch and totally secure. Electric gates to enter and fenced all around so totally secure for the children! Shutters ond doors and windows which were very re assuring and alarmed! Plenty of towels and also beach towels, saved on the extra kg on the flight! Sonos surround sound system, just down load the app so easy and it was great! Netflix and dvd player for the children they were in their glory! Plus the table tennis,swimming pool and golf! Totally fantastic holiday in a stunning villa and have already pre-booked for next year 👍 Great communication with John and the management Danny who we didnt need to contact because everything was just great but he was on call if we needed him! Fab holiday and looking forward to next yr!! 👍😊
