Owned by a brother and sister and their respective families - one keen cyclists and the other keen golfers. We have been holidaying in the Mijas Costa area for nearly 25 years and have owned property on Cerros del Aguila throughout that period. Our children first learned to swim in the pool and holidayed on the sandy beaches below Sohail Castle and in La Cala just minutes away. The children have grown up now so our villa is yours to enjoy even for those peak weeks.
Ginny purchased this Villa in 1993
Why Ginny chose Mijas
Secluded position, the views, the layout of the villa, the views, the pool and by the way did we mention the views? This villa, one of the first on the estate, has been owned by only two families since it was first built. We can claim no credit for the villa layout - that is all down to the previous Scandinavian designers and owners who clearly knew what they were doing. They also designed the villa so that it would stay cool in Summer but could be used in winter - very few villas have the luxury of a wood burner. So there you have it, we love it and we hope you will too.
What makes this Villa unique
There is great cycling from the door - whether you want to cruise along the Paseo early morning with all the joggers, ride to the beach at La Cala or take on the strenuous climbs to Alhaurin or Mijas. You can play golf on some of the finest courses in the world - many of championship quality. There are miles of award winning sandy beaches. But, if we're honest, our guests and friends have found it almost impossible to drag themselves away from the pool......oh and those views!
Pool / Spa
Excellent property with everything you could want for an enjoyable holiday.
Great views, private pool, loads of space inside and out.
Thanks Martyn for taking the time to write a review. We try hard to cover all the details that make for a relaxing and complete holiday experience so you can sit back and enjoy the pool and those views. We hope we can welcome you back again in the future - Ginny
A real home from home!
The villa is very well equipped and has lovely views of the surrounding mountains. The owners have thought of everything with towels supplied, books, games and much more. The pool is a good size and the option of pool heating is available. The whole villa is clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished. We'll definitely return.
Thank you for reviewing us - we're delighted you enjoyed your stay. If it feels like home then that is what we set out to achieve - we really do try hard and will continue to do so. We and our local team will be delighted to welcome you back!
We have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday at this stunning villa. The interior is perfect and very spacious. It has everything you could possibly want! The exterior has plenty of terraces to choose from and the table tennis table was a big hit! Although the weather was lovely, the pool heating was a massive plus. The large trees around the garden had recently been thoroughly pruned which allowed for uninterrupted views, which were stunning.
Ginny and Peter were extremely helpful from booking to arriving. Thank you for renting us your beautiful villa - we hope to be back soon.
Thanks for your review - we really do appreciate it. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope you return soon. We're delighted you had great weather although you can be confident our pool heating will handle just about anything. It has been this year's big investment and it has coped with every Costa weather change since. Looking forward to welcoming you back Ginny
Excellent Just what we needed a home from home
This is the second time we have as a family visted the villa . Both times have been enjoyable stays due to its facilties and location. Its a short easy drive from Malaga Airport , close to excellent beaches , a large supermarket and shops .
In terms of customer service we cannot fault the owners , we had a problem which needed sorting , we emailed Ginny at home and the next day a handyman arrived to solve the issue , prompt and personal service as promised .
The Villa was clean and all the facilties mentioned were as detailed right down to the towels.
A definate sucess was the private pool to cool down in as the weather was in the 30 degree range all week. The new table tennis table was well used and a good addition to the villa.
La Cala de Mijas is about 5km , has a great beach , good bars and restaurants without the big town traffic or people.
We also used the onsite pool available to the Villa users and this has a good bar and restaurant a short walk away if you fancy a beer.
All the shops and beaches are no more than 10 minutes drive max so no long drives required, we had a small micra drove it all week and 13 euros in petrol was the bill!, even better no parking charges anywhere we went.
All said we would revist for third time and may well do so
Thank you for choosing to stay with us again and for reviewing us!
We (and our local team) take some pride in trying to make our guests feel at home and also deal with any problems. The villa has been owned by us for nearly 25 years, is filled with great memories and we hope you take home some happy memories too.
As we say to our guests. If you enjoy your stay tell your family and friends - if you don't then tell us and we'll try to fix it for you.
We'd love to welcome you back in the future.
When you rent a villa for a holiday you are looking for somewhere which you settle into immediately - enter "Villa Miguel".
The owners have given a lot of thought to making the interior comfortable , well equipped and ready for purpose and you just relax as soon as you walk in the door.
Outside - you would struggle to find a better view from any terrace in Costa del Sol. The views of the mountains - up to Mijas are beautiful and you can even get a seascape from the corner of the terrace.
The pool is lovely and the sunbathing areas are all secluded and private. Due to being raised up you can catch a breeze which is most refreshing (and necessary in the hot summer months).
Everything you need for a great holiday is provided - you just have to supply yourselves. (oh and a car is a pretty much need to have)
Overall a one word summary - "Perfect".
Thanks for the review Stewart (and thanks also for helping our local team install the new outdoor table tennis table!). I hope it almost goes without saying - we'd be delighted to welcome you back once again. Ginny and Peter
lovely villa in a stunning location
The villa was really comfortable a genuine home away from home. The showers are really powerful, the kitchen really well equipped and of course the views are spectacular. there are numerous terraces so you can really enjoy the outside space throughout the day. We would definately stay again. highly recommended.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your January stay at Villa Miguel. Long hot showers (with plenty of hot water - each shower has a separate hot water tank) is always a treat on holiday - especially so in winter. All topped off by large bathroom heaters.
Thanks also for your very kind email - delighted you managed to track down the "concealed" cutlery drawers in the kitchen - some kitchen design innovations can be too clever by half!
Please don't hesitate to look us up again if you intend planning another trip to the Costa del Sol - we'd be delighted to welcome you back. Ginny and Peter
GET OFF TO A FLYING START - Malaga is the nearest airport just 20 minutes away by car. A hire car is recommended but it is possible to catch a train from the airport terminal to Fuengirola and then a taxi to the villa.
AWARD WINNING LOCAL BEACHES - Offering sunbeds, chiringuitos (beach bars/restaurants) and free showers. Fuengirola has 7km of beaches from the quietness of Sohail Castle (just 5 mins drive 4km away - free parking and barbecues) to Los Boliches. Or why not try La Cala - a delightful seaside town (just 7 mins drive 5.5kms away - free parking) with 3km of quiet beaches, free play area, wide choice of restaurants and a beach cinema one evening a week during peak Summer!
PLACES TO SEE - We can thoroughly recommend visits to Mijas Pueblo 10kms, Marbella 25kms, Puerto Banus 35kms, Ronda Mountain Village 85kms and Gibraltar 100kms. With fast motorways and an early start Granada 165 kms and even Seville at 235 kms can be visited in a day. There are several outstanding natural parks inland including visits to the Guadalhorce Lakes, El Chorro gorge and spectacular mountain drives through the unspoilt white mountain villages of the Sierra Nevada Alpujarras.
URBANISATION FACILITIES ON YOUR DOORSTEP - There is a lovely restaurant bar on the urbanization overlooking the lifeguarded communal swimming and toddler paddling pools, (communal pools open mid May to mid October) tennis court and football area. There is a wide ranging and good value menu. There is also an informal "cafe culture" tapas bar at the entrance to the urbanization and a well stocked supermarket on site offering bread freshly baked on the premises.
DINE IN STYLE - As well as the urbanisation resturants you are spoilt for dining choice in Fuengirola, La Cala and the surrounding area. Try especially the tapas bars frequented by the Spanish locals in the old quarter of Fuengirola just off Church Square and the nearby Cafe Costa del Sol with the best churros on the costas - just order one each - they are big but great value!
SHOP 'TIL YOU DROP - Extensive shopping is located just 4 kms away at Parque Myramar Shopping Plaza also housing the Hypermarket, Cinema (English films shown) restaurants and extensive range of fashion stores. If you crave more retail therapy there are weekly outdoor markets in Fuengirola and La Cala and outlet shopping, restaurants and entertainment in Plaza Mayor by Malaga Airport.
LOTS TO DO FOR ALL THE FAMILY - There are various attractions close to the villa with Costa del Sol Racecourse and Karting 5 mins away, Water Park (water slides etc) 10 mins, Fuengirola Zoo 10 mins, Tivoli World fun park and cable cars 20 mins.
WANT TO BE ENERGETIC? - There is a climbing wall and zipwire just 5 minutes away at Sohail Castle together with
daily and hourly cycle rental. Both Fuengirola and La Cala have seen dramatic increases in cycling in recent years and are readily accessible by bike from the villa; Fuengirola offers traffic free cycling on the promenade. There is more challenging riding inland of the coastal strip both on and off road. We can recommend a local guided downhill mountain biking operator to make the most of your bike riding. They cater for all levels of ability from novices to hardened thrill seekers - at very reasonable rates.
OR WHY NOT DROP IN ON THE MILLIONAIRES' PLAYGROUND - Finally to sample designer shopping, go celebrity spotting and people watching or to admire exotic cars and super yachts then Puerto Banus is a must.
