Away from it all, without being too cut off!
A pretty Spanish villa, ideal for families or groups of friends. Sleeps from 1 to 8 guests. 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom (extra beds provided free of charge), 4 bathrooms, large family farmhouse style kitchen with sofabed, formal lounge with 2 large sofas and wing-back chairs. 50" TV with basic British TV package, HDMI and USB connections. Plenty of space inside and out to relax in a corner to yourself, even when you are part of a large group. Outside there´s a covered terrace with 3 sofas, an open courtyard with a very scruffy pool table under the shade of a lemon tree, a shady barbeque complete with huge table and plenty of chairs. The swimming pool has a springboard and slide (suitable for fun loving adults as well as children), tiled sundecks with plenty of sunloungers. The lawn has fruit trees for shade. The whole pool area is fully fenced in making it safe for families with children.
The villa is in a very quiet estate of private villas but only a twenty minute walk from the affluent, lively town of Alhaurin de la Torre. 20 minutes in the car and you are on the beaches of Torremolinos
The walk into the town centre from the villa is along our quiet, well lit, cul de sac and then along safely lit, palm tree lined pavements.

We were a party of 7 ladies celebrating a 50th birthday. We spent hours on the internet looking for the perfect place to stay... which paid off with an absolutely fabulous villa and a lovely helpful owner. The villa and pool was clean and well maintained. We even had our own lemon tree for our vodka! Everything is so well laid out for a large party, so you can all eat/drink/chat together. The BBQ area is stunning, as is the pool and the tranquillity of the villa/location. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to all the shops and bars, with loads of choice of lovely food. The owner was extremely helpful, she even drove me into the town to get our bearings on the best places to eat/drink. I cannot recommend this place enough... you will have the best amazing time. Thank you Anneliese
Fantastic villa and an extremely helpful owner too. We had a brilliant time !
Thoroughly enjoyable week
We had a fantastic week at this lovely villa and have no problem at all recommending this to others.
The villa was clean and everything you would expect from the advertisement but we were pleasantly surprised by the pool / garden areas which were quite spacious and private. The pool itself is also quite large.
Do not be put off if you don’t have a car! A car is recommended yes but a 10 minute walk will take you to the nearest bus stop / café / pharmacist, a 15 minute walk will take you to the local tapas bar and a 20 minute walk will take you to the supermarket which incidentally happens to be at the top of the town and a taxi back will cost roughly 7€
There is also a bus into Malaga every day and even on Sunday should you want to go to Malaga Cathedral. Malaga itself is also a very historical and picturesque city.
Anneliese was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
The villa is perfect for a quiet week away from it all but still close enough to the town if you don’t mind the walk.
Thank you! You are right to mention the car. It is an easy walk into town but I do suggest a car for the hottest months, particularly for supermarket trips.
Fabulous Villa Holiday
We have recently returned from an 8 day stay at this lovely villa, travelling as a family group of 4 adults and a 2 year old toddler. We were delighted with the villa as it was even more spacious than the pictures showed. It had everything we needed including an outdoor fridge, a good selection of books and games and the outdoor areas were great, with plenty of seating and shaded areas.
The pool and garden area is fabulous with plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas and seating and with great views of the mountains . An added bonus for us was the fact that the pool area is gated which gave piece of mind with a toddler in our group.
Anneliese met us at the villa and gave us a warm welcome and prior to our arrival her communication was excellent, responding swiftly to emails and the whole process was very simple and quick. The villa itself is in a quiet residential area and is a 15 - 20 minute walk into the centre of town. We'd have no hesitation in returning to this lovely villa and had a very relaxing time there. Many Thanks Anneliese.
Thank you. You are correct to point out the peace of mind having a secure swimming pool gives. The safety of my guests and the ability to relax are very important to me.
Wow, Awesome Villa
Searched for a villa with a pool in Andalusia, luckily found this and decided to book. Description listed everything we needed.
Well we spent our week at the villa and were not disappointed. It was better than described, perfect for a relaxing week or two.
Anneliese sent us all information prior to trip, met us on arrival and provided a detailed tour and information. A very useful Red Folder provides all necessary information on the villa and the local area.
Fully fitted out kitchen with more utensils than we have at home, we cooked a few meals at the villa.
We had a very hot week, temps reaching 37c so most of our time was spent in the pool. Pool is lovely and had plenty of inflatables which we all enjoyed playing with.
The weather was great and the villa was great.
Yes, wasn't it hot when you were here? I am so glad you enjoyed the villa and pool!
We had a lovely holiday and the villa was beautiful, all the basic items are there as well as a selection of books and games. We found it a lot easier when we worked out the local transport system in the second week, It is well run and very affordable. The nearest bus stop is a 10 minute walk from the villa and will take you into the town if you don't fancy the 20/30 minute walk. There is also a train line at Plaza Mayor -from there you can get to places like Benalmadena and Torremolinos. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again especially now we know how easy the bus service is to use. If we were to stay in a larger group again we would probably hire a car to make it easier getting food back to the villa although the local taxis are very reliable and we were never waiting for more 10 minutes to be picked up.
Thank you. I am delighted that you realised how good the bus service is. As you said, the train line is great, one way goes to Fuengirola and the other into the centre of Malaga. However, I do recommend that guests have a car especially in the hotter summer months, not only to make shopping trips more comfortable but to explore the lovely towns and cities locally. The walk into town is 1.2km to the edge and 2km to the centre.
Hope to see you again!
