About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4, amazing views, private pool, wifi, a/c

A charming 2 bedroomed villa, inland from the Costa del Sol. Villa Maria, set on a peaceful hillside amid an avocado grove, is situated 5 mins from Coin and 25 min from Marbella, Puerto Banus and the sea. The cosy villa is in excellent order throughout with full air conditioning. Accommodation comprises one twin bedroom and one double bedroom. Shower room and WC. The kitchen is fully fitted with hob, oven and microwave. The sitting room is comfortably furnished and there is a smart TV with freeview and a DVD player. Dining area. The beautiful 8x5m private swimming pool has a tiled surround with sun loungers and there is a lovely raised shady eating area. The pool terrace is gated off for child safety. Depending on the time of year there is fruit to be picked on the driveway. Beautiful views, especially from the roof terrace. Please also see Property no. 7398 Finca Tropical, spacious 4 bed villa, 100metres away for large groups or families who like to holiday together but prefer a degree of privacy.

Villa Maria lies within reach of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Within 2/3 hours drive you could be hurtling down the slopes of the highest mountains in Spain. A fascinating break from the drudgery of the pool or golf course! Highly recommended.

About Kate Petrides

I am a doctor specialising in back pain and sports injuries. I am married to Kate who organises the bookings for our villas and we have three children. We have had many amazing family holidays in Coin at Villa Maria and Finca Tropical.

Kate Petrides purchased this villa in 2000

Why Kate Petrides chose Coín

The villa is situated in a beautiful and peaceful location but the traditional Spanish town of Coin is nearby with its restaurants, cinema and shopping. There is a large terrace area with stunning views across the valley.

What makes this villa unique

Amazing views, tranquil location, comfortable villa. Large private pool. Airconditioning and Wifi. Plenty of space to play outdoor games and relax by the pool. Lovely shaded dining area by the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kate,

first of all, thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful week at Villa Maria. Yes, it was very hot, especially when looking at the average summer temperatures in Denmark (~17C, this summer being no exception). We enjoyed it thoroughly, though. We had a couple of lovely daytrips to Ronda and Gibraltar, but also found time to visit Mijas and other beautiful places nearby. I enjoy watching birds, and apart from 42 white storks, bee eaters, short-toed eagle, and daily views of booted eagle all from the poolside, I had a couple of mornings by myself, where I visited the area between Istan and Monda as well as Grazalema and the mountain pass west of, El Boyar. The area around Grazalema was overwhelmingly beautiful.

The villa was perfect for my family and I; great pool area, stunning views, and simply lovely surroundings. We couldn't help imaging how beautiful it must be during spring as well!

Once again, thank you very much for your hospitality. We hope to return to Coín one day.

All the best

Andreas W and family

Lovely villa and location.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in villa Maria for a week in July 2015 with my husband and teenage daughter and we all loved it. Beautiful views from the pool area :) It's not the biggest villa but has everything you need and we felt very relaxed and comfortable here the Wifi is perfect :) The location is a little remote but we liked that and you are only a 5 minute drive into town. The village of Coin has everything you need, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and is very traditional.

Was easy to book the villa, professional service and I recommend to all. I fell in live with the villa and town and would return in a heartbeat. Many thanks for a perfect holiday.

Shhhh....don't tell everyone about it!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, beautiful views, great pool, good facilities - no wonder there are so few reviews; everyone wants to keep it to themselves!

For a 2-bed villa this one is very spacious, both inside & out. Kitchen large & well equipped, with large open counter to living room, which makes cooking a much more sociable activity. Shower room is quite small but functional, all clean & well-maintained. Bedrooms have ample storage, mattresses could be more comfortable but OK for a week or 2.

The outside space is idyllic: large pool & shady terrace, peaceful west-facing views till sunset, fruit trees to harvest... Sadly the pool shower does not work for some reason, but the pool itself is great & sun loungers are more comfortable than most. Owner was responsive to queries & refunded deposit promptly.

Coin is a nice, unpretentious town with plenty to do if you want - really only 5 mins away when you get used to the route. We recommend the 'ventas' (type of rural, family-run restaurant in this area) for authentic, local, good value food.

Marbella is only about 20 mins away on a good, fast road, well worth visiting the covered municipal market for fresh fish, meat, veg (& excellent kitchen knives!), the picturesque old town for interesting shops & tapas bars - oh, and the seafront, of course!

We'd be quite happy to come back here every year, & certainly will return again soon.

Peace perfect Peace..

  • 5 of 5

Villa Maria is a wonderful place to getaway and relax surrounded by avocado, figs, oranges and lemon trees.

The property itself was very clean and contained everything you could ever need. It was like a home from home and we all felt very comfortable there.

The outside area is excellent, with good size pool, loungers and eating area with tables and chairs which is in a shaded postition. The views are spectacular and the sky at night breathtaking.

I wouldnt recommend the property to elderly people or young party people as you have to drive up the windy hill to reach "civilisation".

Villa Maria is the perfect place to get away from it all, a place to stop and relax and this was exactly what it gave us.

Fantastisk beliggenhed, pool og udsigt

  • 4 of 5

Vi - 2 voksne og 2 drenge (9+13 år) - tilbragte ti skønne dage i Villa Maria.

Huset er skønt og pool, tagterasse og den skyggefulde poolterasse var endnu bedre en forventet.

Vi kunne aldrig blive trætte af den fantastiske udsigt.

Huset er ikke stort, men har alt hvad man skal bruge - tiden benyttes alligevel udenfor. A/C var en gave, da vi ramte dage på over 40 grader.

Beliggenheden er perfekt - afsides uden af være isoleret og kort køretur til masser af indkøbsmuligheder.

Stedet tilbyder en perfekt feriemix af dovne-dage ved poolen og endagsture til Mijas, Malaga, Gibraltar og Benalmedena.

Vi vender helt sikkert tilbage.

Coin is an attractive, unspoilt town, about 25 minutes drive from the coast. Coin has a good range of amenities including shops, restaurants, bars etc., and a large supermarket. Villa Maria enjoys a semi-rural location peacefully located on a hillside about 5 minutes by car from Coin. The views across the valley are wonderful. Puerto Banus, Marbella and the beaches are jus 25 minutes drive away. The villa is about 5 mins by car from the town. There is a small local shop about 15 minutes stroll from the villa which stocks day to day essentials. If you are looking for a peaceful break away from the crowds with lovely scenery but within easy reach of the town and beaches this is an ideal location. A wealth of activities are available in the surrounding area and there's a superb choice of golf courses to suit every standard.

Other Activities: Beautiful walks in surrounding countryside. 25 mins drive to a wide selection of beaches
