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 jacuzzi 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 jacuzzi 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.

THANKS - Beautiful villa, pool and grounds

  • 5 of 5

The moment the gates opened we were welcomed warmly by Roy, manager of the property. Roy’s team had prepared the villa immaculately, indeed luxury hotel standard.

After a tour and chat with Roy we headed up to Alhaurín el Grande and the local supermarket for supplies. Fridge and ‘larder’ stocked we easily settled in to our home for the week.

Each room was spacious and has its own spectacular vistas. Air conditioning though out the villa was great for the kids on the hottest days too.

The photos describing the property are accurate, but still they just cannot highlight the privacy and seclusion we enjoyed. You really can chill around the pool, pop the tunes on the Sonos and soak up the views of the Sierra de Mijas. Added bonus was the Golden Eagle soaring high above the valley.

Our party consisted of four adults and two children. After asking the kids what their favourite part of the holiday was there were memorable answers….

Logan (5 ½ years) – “Pool party, golf, table tennis, tennis and football with Daddy.” Yes, he’s a sporty lad.

Florence (3 ½ years) – “Mermaid Bay!” Which translates to the semi-circle shallow part of the pool Florence ruled for the week.

We would recommend a hire car at the ready. It’s a nice trip up to town for an ice cream in the afternoon, Heladería "La Chacha", top up supplies or to head out for dinner in the evening. The owners sent us a great recommendation list when we booked.

We’ll be booking again without doubt. I’ll also be talking to the cycling club to use as a base for the next Malaga-Andalucía trip as the mountain routes are spectacular and challenging.

A truly beautiful villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious family villa with beautiful surroundings, the smell of the orange groves was divine. The pool was so tempting too.

Although the villa is in a rural location it’s very close to local amenities also only a 20 minute drive to Malaga. I had a fabulous time there.

Amazing Villa with Beautiful, Peaceful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

When we (Family of 10) arrived at the Villa and the gates opened we couldn't believe how amazing the villa looked with so much space, and great views of the mountains. Plus it had plenty of places for everyone to find there own little spot to sit and chill. The Villa had everything you could want for a perfect relaxing holiday, we all loved sitting by the pool and enjoyed the BBQ area most nights. I made the mistake of not hiring a car so would recommend getting one for a few days as the Supermarkets are around a 10 minute drive away. The Weather was great and we couldn't have asked for a better Holiday and have no negative comments to make, so many thanks to John the Owner, the whole family loved it.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for choosing us for your holiday. It’s fantastic when people love the place as much as we do, especially when families like yourselves post such positive reviews, as large gatherings of family and friends is exactly how we envisaged the place being used when be bought here 2 years ago. You’ve been great guests and we’d love to welcome you back in future. John & Louisa x
