About the Property
Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Situated on a mountaintop, Las Columnas is an easy drive to not only world class sporting activities, but is also located in the heart of ancient Moorish history and culture. Las Columnas is just a short walk from Mijas, one of Spain's most famous 'white villages'.
The home's most unique feature is its 13 ancient Roman Columnas that grace the front of the home. Based on a traditional center-courtyard Moorish design, you will not only find family comfort among the spacious rooms, but also a truly soothing environment with several locations to relax in/around the home. The best time to enjoy Las Columnas is in the evening, watching the moon rise over the Mediterranean.
5 large bedrooms with a mixture of queen and twins are featured in the home to accommodate different sizes of families. 3 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. 2 bedrooms (one queen bedded rooms and one twin bedded room) are connected by one bathroom, perfect for a family with perhaps smaller children. Each bathroom has a shower while 3 of the four also have bathtubs. We heard from our customers and took note! All bedrooms have brand new mattresses, the best IKEA has, and all new air con in every bedroom. New furniture in both lounges!
Mijas, the quaint 'white village'of Andalucia, offers all the modern conveniences of grocery/souvenier shopping, plus wonderful dining experiences. Our family has always loved El Olivar next to town hall and if you are a soccer fanatic, you must watch a popular match and dine at El Canuelo. Farther into the village, you will find the old square, Spain's only square bullring and 17th century reliefs found in the town's oldest and most beautiful churches. Gardens, playground and an amphitheatre adorn this upper part of town.
Outside of Mijas, there are many cultural highlights. In a day's drive, you can visit the famous Moorish castle, Alhambra in Granada, or the high village of Ronda, or even Seville and Cordoba. Malaga, Andalucia's capital, has many cultural hotspots and a famous botanical garden in the center of the city. Don't miss some old fashioned tapas bars in Malaga. An easy train ride will bring you to the center of rhe city. For younger children, don't miss Tivoli Gardens, a wonderful amusement park, just 20 minutes west of our house. Tivoli is best enjoyed in the evening. For a slightly older age group, there is terrific nightlife in Funegirola, Marbella, and Malaga.
World famous golf courses abound in the Costa Del Sol. 10 minutes from the home is Seve Ballestores' private design, 'Alhaurin'. Mijas Golf, 10 minutes south of the house, is a 36 hole course cut from an old olive tree plantation. About 20 minutes from the house is La Cala,the winter home to the Swedish National Golf Team. Vallederama, The Ryder Cup course, is approximately 35 minutes from Las Columnas. If you are looking for a true beachside course, try Torrequebrada, about 20 minutes southwest of the house. A quaint, little course nestled in the hills northeast of Mijas is Lauro Golf-great value for money and always has open tee times.
If beach activities is what you are looking for, go no further. 8 miles above the hustle and bustle of the coast beach scene lays our home. A quick drive down the coast will put into the beach life of Fuengirola, Marbella and Estepona. Plenty of metered parking is available and a cabana for a day is about 2 Euros. The beachside restaurants offer delicious, fresh seafood and other fare.

Mijas is a quaint 'white village' set in the mountains above the sea. Mijas is home to many fabulous little bars and restaurants-our favorite cozy little place is El Canuelo while El Olivar has beautiful sea views. Scenic drives abound to many important historical sites such as Ronda, Granada, Seville. Neolithic caves are located not too far away.
Year Purchased: 1970
About the owner: My family has spent our summers at this home from 1970. We love going to the beach during the day and dining out in Mijas at night.
Why the Owner Chose Mijas, Málaga, Spain:
My parents designed and built their dream home on a mountaintop in the Costa Del Sol. We are the sole owners of this grand villa and have enjoyed bringing our own families here for over 40 years. This property is especially unique in that 13 marble ancient Roman columnas hold up the second floor terracing that encompasses this villa. These columns were found in a field by my parents and were quickly incorporated into the design of the villa. Other features for your comfort-a brand new heating and cooling system in all the bedrooms and a new gas fireplace in the dining room adds ambiance and a wonderful source of heat.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Las Columnas is perfect for multi generational families. Between strolling through the quiet streets of Mijas or Moorish ruins around Andalucia to world famous golf to the quintessential beach atmosphere of the coast, Las Columnas is near it all. Added benefits to our villa-we have just purchased all new furniture, including mattresses and beds. You won't get a better night's sleep anywhere.
