“Perfect holiday location”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This property ticked all the boxes on our list: plenty of space, only 30 or so minutes from Malaga airport and a similar distance from the coast, relatively quiet but not too remote, close enough to a town for local services but not in a busy or congested area.

Finding the property was straightforward, assisted by the very pleasant and helpful local man who looks after the property for the owner. He met us at a nearby petrol station and led the way to the house, he then showed us around and explained everything we needed to know, including when to expect gardeners and pool maintenance to turn up.

The house is lovely; tastefully furnished and decorated with loads of space. It is fully equipped with all appliances, every necessary kitchen utensil, towels and bed linen. We loved the pool and spent a lot of time there; it is clean and safe and well maintained with a wide terrace for sunbathing. The hot-tub sits in the corner of an attractive courtyard and seats 6 comfortably. The gardens are delightful, thoughtfully laid out and well looked after. During our stay at the end of July the trees were loaded with citrus fruits and pomegranates alongside many flowering plants, cacti and, of course, palm trees. The path leading down to the gym is framed by a grape vine that was also laden with fruit. There are several televisions and a music system but we did not make use of these. We did, however, need internet access and found that the broadband service was very good.

Alhaurin El Grande is a fairly ordinary small town with a couple of decent supermarkets, shops, banks and plenty of restaurants. Our favourite was Carolina, which is on the main road into the town, within walking distance of the property. We had a birthday celebration dinner there; the meal was excellent and the service very friendly and attentive.

The nearest beach is probably Fuenjirola; a typical Costa del Sol urban beach with miles of promenade backed by hotels, restaurants, gift shops and apartment blocks. We preferred La Cala de Mijas, a couple of km further, which is smaller and quieter, with a seaside village ambiance but still plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.

Overall we had a great, stress free holiday experience and I hope we can go back again.
