Overview

About the property

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to write and say thank you for the most amazing holiday we have just returned from at your villa. I tried to post a review on the Homeaway website but had problems so here it is.



The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival, with fresh bedding and matching towels folded on the ends of the beds like in a hotel! In truth the villa is better than the photos. We loved the pool area, the children would have slept out there too given the chance. We loved that we could walk into the town, particularly as the pizza place with soft play area is the nearest cafe, it only took us 15 minutes. We will definitely be booking to come back next year. Can't wait!

Notes:
The villa is ideal for groups and families, but also for couples who enjoy the private space and having a pool to themselves. There are a number of steps within the grounds, making it unsuitable for wheelchairs. We do not allow smoking within the villa at any time, but there are plenty of comfortable, shady chairs outside. The air conditioning is in the kitchen/dining room and all three bedrooms. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I live, with my friendly dogs, in a house in a totally separate area of the grounds. There is a high wall between my gardens and yours and therefore I will not disturb your privacy at all. However, I am on hand should you require any help or some local knowledge. I have plenty of recommendations for good restaurants!

What a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

What can l say about this holiday other than wonderful. We spent 10 days in June in this villa with our daughter, her husband and two grandchildren. We had everything in the villa for 3 generations to enjoy,pool toys, snooker table, quiet areas to relax, a well equipped kitchen and 4 showers. Anneliese could not do enough for us so much that we went back for 10 days in August just the 2 of us. She knew all the best restaurants to go to; we did not have a bad meal either holiday. She has a great knowledge of the area and was always happy to answer any question we had. We are very happy to return for 2 holidays next year can’t wait. Big thank you to Anneliese.

Excellant Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at this Villa. The full experience from booking to leaving was excellent. Communication from Anneliese before arrival was brilliant, she provided excellent directions and updates on what to do upon arrival in Malaga, and made special arrangements to supply travel cot and highchair for our 2 yr old granddaughter . The Villa itself was great for our family of 7 - 3 spacious air conditioned bedrooms, 2 of which en suite ensured we all had our own private space. The sitting room is very well equipped , with a large screen TV hosting Netflix's was a great success with our oldest Son (Wifi coverage is also excellent) There is plenty of room to relax on the massive sofa's - and the sitting room is a lovely cool room to relax when a break from the sun is needed. The kitchen is as equally spacious, with a massive farm house style table and all the other stuff needed for a family of 7. Where the villa really excels thought is in the outside space - The pool is brilliant with a slide and spring board - great for older kids and parents/grandparents too. The pool is very well cared for - really spotless and frequently water tested etc by the owner. There are plenty of sun loungers and large box of every type of inflatable a family would need. The garden areas are well landscaped and filled with Orange/ fig/ pear trees – lovely for picking any low hanging fruit !. The Pool and upper garden area also benefit from a lockable gate – which gives added peace of mind if visiting with toddlers . The lower garden area is kitted out with a really large rustic dinning table , outside cooking area and a large Smeg fridge – a brilliant area for evening dining . The outside area also benefits from an outside bathroom - with a really excellent shower with jet sprays from every angle, and an enormous bath big enough for 2. A real added bonus is the Pool table outside - this provided plenty of evening entertainment for our group. It was very hot during our stay, so we spend most of our days and evening around the pool and in the many area’s to relax in the garden – the villa offered more than enough to keep everyone happy and entertained.

A very special thank you to Anneliese who ensured we had everything we needed, and was most accommodating with arrival and departure times.

Nice villa but needs some updating

  • 4 of 5

The villa itself is very nice and roomy. Would suit a family upto 5-6 people easily. Lots of pots and pans and a barbecue. The owner lives close and is helpful, when you need assistance. If you have never been to rural Spain, bare in mind that there are lots of dogs and chickens.

There were some issues, though: the toilet seats need changing, as they smell (even though we cleaned them 2-3 times a day), when you take a shower in en-suite bathroom, it leaks in the corner.

The pool is lovely but 1.6 m in the shallow end, which makes it a challenge for children, who are not confident swimmers. The air conditioner is on timer, and cannot be left for the night. For us it meant getting up at night to switch it on again, which is not a relaxing experience. Sleeping with the open windows was not an option either because of the dogs and in July it is too hot for most of the night anyway. There is no air conditioner in the lounge, which makes it too hot to use after midday. The fan provided did not make a lot of difference.

Otherwise, it was lovely. We like Alhaurin de la Torre with its traditional and at the same time modern feel and loads of restaurants. The airport and the sea are both within 20 min. with many beaches to choose from.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am glad that, overall, you liked the villa. To address some points you have made. I am appalled to read about the toilet seats and the need to clean 2 to 3 times a day. I would not expect a guest to even contemplate doing such a thing. I pride myself on the cleanliness of the villa and have a very loyal team of extremely particular ladies who clean with me. I have spoken to them about this issue and personally inspected the villa before they started and after they finished prior to these guests arrival. None of us were aware of a problem. I wish on the 2 or 3 times that I saw these guests during their stay and asked if everything was ok that they had mentioned it. I would have welcomed the opportunity to inspect there and then and rectify it immediately. I now have guests in the villa who have not mentioned anything so I will have to wait til they go to make another inspection. Any problems I find will, of course, be addressed immediately. The same with regard to the shower. I will inspect it as soon as possible and fix any leaks I find. Yes the pool is deep. It has large, wide Roman steps to enter the water and children are normally happy to float from these with their swim aids. I am very proud of the amount of children who have learnt to swim in my pool. Please note that in Andalucia it is extemely common to have a deep pool as often they are constructed from old water deposits. It is very important to ask the depth of a pool prior to booking if you have children who are scared of deep water as these guests did. Air conditioning timer switches are very common here for energy conservation, to prevent guests being able to leave it on all day when they go out. The villa is traditionally built and if managed properly, ie shutters shut during the day, can be kept quite cool, even in the hotter months. I have extra fans in the villa for guests use and a multi socket extension lead in the lounge so that more fans can be put in there if required. Yes there are dogs and chickens in the area, as indeed there is other wildlife. We can go for days without hearing anything and then on occasions have every dog in the neighbourhood barking like they are in 101 Dalmatians for no apparent reason. I think the most important thing I can say is that guests should always ask their property manager questions prior to booking and speak to them during their stay if they have any problems.

Fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in this lovely villa. Anneliese [the owner] was on hand should we need any assistance and she was really helpful. There were 6 adults in our party and the villa was lovely and spacious and we spent most of our time in or around the swimming pool. The garden was lovely and it was a very relaxing holiday. We enjoyed the facilities the villa offered and because of that we only ate out twice during our 7 day stay. We would highly recommend this villa and we would certainly be returning.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

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

Alhaurin de la Torre is an affluent town with all the modern amenities you could possibly require, set around an older, traditional centre. The avenues are lined with palm trees and the roundabouts adorned with modern art, there are two free outside gyms, a wonderful Japanese garden and numerous parks and facilities to enjoy all within the town,

The villa will be a tranquil, relaxing world of your own but within a few minutes of bars, shops and restaurants.

Two minutes from the mountainous countryside, 20 minutes from the beaches of Torremolinos. 30 minutes from Benalmadena Costa. Lauro Golf is only 6 minutes away and dozens of golf courses are within half an hours drive. The Plaza Mayor shopping and entertainment complex is 15 minutes away, with around 30 restaurants, all the major clothing retailers, a multi screen cinema and bowling alley.

Malaga city is only a 15 minute drive. A city which is well worth visiting for it´s old quarter with Picasso museum and cathedral

Other Activities: There is everything you could possibly wish for within a 20 minute drive of this villa. An hour and a half and you can ski in the Sierra Nevada!

Golf: Lauro Golf Course is only a 6 minute drive from the villa. It is beautiful. Parador Golf in Malaga is only a 20 minute drive away. Alhaurin Golf is the next nearest at just under half an hour, then Mijas Golf, Santana Golf and dozens more within three quarters of an hour!

Ski: Only two hours in the car and you can be in the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada. Well worth a visit in the summer for the scenery as well as the winter.
