Fabulous villa and guesthouse in large, private gardens. The villa has French doors in all rooms facing the expansive, flat lawns, making this a very easy and comfortable way to live. There are several seating areas, both in shade and sun, and we have two roofed areas for dining, one by the pool and the other overlooking the sea. The urbanisation is one of the oldest on the Costa del Sol and the villa plots are large, making this a peaceful area, yet within easy reach of all activities based along the coast. There are several Championship golf courses nearby and a driving range within 0.5km. Gym, tennis and padel close-by. Beaches, many of them with Blue Flags, are within a 10 minute drive as is Aqua Park, Selwo Marina, Fuengirola Zoo and Benalmadena Marina. For anyone wanting to travel further, there are excellent train connections to Malaga, Cordoba, Sevilla and Madrid.

Notes on accommodation
Villa: Central heating/air-conditioning throughout.
Guest House: There are heaters/air-conditioning units in the 2 double bedrooms and in the main living/kitchen area. A portable air-con is available for the bunk bed room.
The pool is fenced and the garden flat apart from a couple of stairs down to a lawn. Our children have grown up in these gardens so I would consider it suitable for most children!
We include 2 hrs cleaning of the villa every morning, except weekends. Sheets/towels will be changed weekly. Extra cleaning or baby sitting available at cost.
The pool and gardens are attended daily during the week.
There is a large (16m x 8m) private pool with a plain iron fence. A diving board and slide is available, although if small children are around, the slide should not be set up as the steps are outside and go over the pool fence. The gas BBQ is situated next to the pagoda which is a fabulous area for evening meals as it overlooks the Mediterranean. There are several shaded and sunny seating areas for cocktails, dining, reading, playing or sunbathing. Table linen, tables, chairs, cushions and lanterns are available to use outside. The villa sits in large lawns with several tropical plants, roses, orange, lime and lemon trees (please feel free to pick one for your evening drink!). Use of basketball hoop, football goal, wooden play house, pool toys etc. Parking outside.
We have all the Benalmadena Costa beaches 10 minutes (max) drive down the road. There are some, less known, little coves along the stretch below the house. There are also lovely beaches 20 minutes down the coast in the Elviria area.
We are happy to supply all the information on where to go.
We are 15 minutes drive away from Malaga airport. We would recommend car hire, but it perfectly possible to walk to supermarkets, beaches and restaurants. Local taxis are available and come within minutes.
Trains from Torremuelle (7 mins by car) go between Malaga and Fuengirola with stops along the way. This is an efficient and easy service to use and we would recommend at least one trip in to Malaga which is a lovely town and often missed.
Benalmadena Pueblo 0.5 km. Malaga 20km. Airport 15 minutes.
We have two dogs that are in a separate part of the garden and will not be in 'your' part of the property. They will not disturb you! The villa is only available in July and August, but the 3 bedroom guesthouse might be available at other times. Please feel free to contact us for details!
