About Michael Aldridge

We are a family of 5 with two sons and a daughter. We enjoy family holidays and go skiing once a year.

We live in a rural Cheshire Village with our two boxer dogs and the chickens.

We enjoying playing golf and are both still working.

Michael Aldridge purchased this villa in 2011

Why Michael Aldridge chose Benahavís

We have been visiting El Paraiso for over 20 years and the area gives the whole family everything they need from a holiday and more.

When we walked into the villa in 2011 we all knew it was perfect for our family and had a home from home feel.

The villa is in its own private grounds which are stunning, but is accessable to everything you need.

Since buying the villa we have replaced all the bathrooms except for the Guest Toilet in the Hall, a bit of a retro room, something to remind us of how the house was before the refurbishment.

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our guests holiday experience and use our own high expectations to add and upgrade things which you may not be used to getting in other villas.

What makes this villa unique

Guests will enjoy the benefit of quality comfortable beds and bed linen. Each room is air-conditioned. We have Fibre Optic Broadband, Free Wi-fi, 3D Smart Television with over 100 channels including Sky, BBC, ITV etc., and a DVD player with a selection of DVD's.

The villas bedrooms are split with two either side of the property giving more privacy for couples or two families.

The private pool with its sunbathing areas and covered terrace with integral BBQ is the perfect place to enjoy your holiday with family or friends.

The villa is situated at the rear of El Paraiso golf course and not near the busy main road. Guests can use the back lanes to gain access to Los Flamingos and the beach in one direction or Atalaya and Benahavis in the other.

There are many good local restaurants and bars so you don't have to travel far in the evening and two supermarkets close by.

Fantastic and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The villa was spacious enough to accommodate our party of 8 with ages ranging from 16 to 80! . The villa is very well appointed, clean and very well maintained. Electric gates give an added sense of seclusion and security.

The terrace and pool areas were fantastic and were set in well manicured gardens. Plenty of seating and sun beds for everyone.

Air conditioning throughout the villa and comfortable beds made for a good night's sleep.

No issues with power or water which we have encountered in other properties.

We were greeted at the villa by the property managers who gave a thorough run through of the properties facilities. They were also on hand to respond to any questions we had during our stay.

Supermarket was within 5-10mins easy drive. Loads of golf courses in the area. Puerta Banus within a 15 minute drive depending on traffic.

All in all an excellent place to stay and we are already considering returning next year.

A delightful home from home; can't recommend highly enough.

  • 5 of 5

The property has everything you need for a fabulous holiday. A very well equipped kitchen, air conditioning, beautiful pool and outside barbecue/ eating area. The two bedrooms on either side of the lounge worked really well for us with teenagers on one side and youngest child on the other with us. Everywhere was really clean and well presented. The agents were very helpful ; good to have them nearby if you need them. You do need a car to get around but we knew that before we booked. You definitely won't be disappointed .

A fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week at this beautiful villa. It catered for the whole family, aged from 5 to 75! Everyone had a great time relaxing, playing in the gorgeous pool and enjoying the local food and wine. Allison and Michael were great answering any queries prior to our visit and the team at Tango were very helpful during our stay. We would love to come again sometime.

Another excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed here in 2014 we were all very much looking forward to returning and weren't disappointed. As before, our group comprised seven family members across three generations but this time we were able to stay for two weeks and our grandson, now two and a half, got much more from the pool, albeit under the close scrutiny of six pairs of very attentive eyes!

The villa is maintained to a very high standard with all the equipment and facilities you could wish for and the team at Tango, the local agents, are always available to provide friendly help and advice.

Lunch at the El Paraiso Golf Club is a must, as is dinner at Ramos - both within walking distance if you just have to have that extra glass of wine to keep cool in the lovely weather! We also visited San Pedro and Estepona this trip, both only minutes away in the car, and some of the group took a day trip to Gibraltar passing through the border controls without any delay despite the UK having voted 'Brexit' only the week before...

I can't recommend this villa highly enough. The location and standard is excellent, and nothing is too much trouble for the owners, Allison and Michael, or their agents at Tango.
