Villa in La Sierrezuela, Fuengirola, Costa Del Sol, Spain

About Jeremy or Venetia
We are a farming family in Hertfordshire who have owned property in Fuengirola for over 50 years. Some 40 years ago we found a fantastic opportunity to build our own villa and thus was born La Solana. We have a large family who continue to enjoy the villa as our second home.
Jeremy or Venetia purchased this Villa in 1970
Why Jeremy or Venetia chose Mijas
During the 1970s, having already owned a home in the area, we decided to purchase a secluded piece of land with amazing views on top of a hill, on which to build our dream villa. Since then the villa has been continuously updated and modernised to a comfortable standard, this has provided large and spacious bedrooms all of which have their own bathrooms. A large veranda allows spectacular views down to Fuengirola and the sea, a perfect place to chill and enjoy a glass of something special. Despite its fantastic private location access to local amenities is quick and easy, with shops and restaurants in El Coto only a 10 minute walk down the hill and the bustle of Fuengirola a 10 minute taxi away
What makes this Villa unique
We have enjoyed many holidays at La Solana since we built it in the 1970s on unspoilt countryside. Over the years it has been an ideal second home to entertain friends and family of all ages in a brilliant location. Nearby sports include golf, tennis, horse riding and waterparks. The villa was built on two plots of land so affords generous garden space so everyone can find a quiet corner if they want. It has unrivalled views across the countryside and down towards the sea and being south facing you will have continuous sunshine though out the day. The villa is very spacious with unusually large bedrooms all with a bathroom and communal areas suitable for children and adults alike. The villa is only a 20 minute drive from Malaga airport so is a hassle free transfer to sunshine! Marbella is a simple 20 minute drive and the charming white-washed village of Mijas, only 4 miles from the villa, retains much of the Andalusian way of life and is very interesting to explore. Local shops and restaurants are only a 10 minute walk.

The property was all we expected. The decor in the villa was in good condition. The villa is very spacious and has a fantastic view from the terrace overlooking Fuengirola. The pool and the area around it is well maintained and during the day we lived by the pool for the week. Recommend this property.
This is a lovely property, really spacious, well maintained with a homely feel. All the rooms are extremely comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and great amenities.
We were a group of 10 friends and family and had a wonderful time catching up. The pool is perfect, plenty of sun beds and umbrellas.
All in all we had a really enjoyable stay,I would definitely recommend and would love to return.
We are so pleased you had a fantastic time and thank you for your lovely review, we do try to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible during their holiday in our family home.
We would love you to come back again!
Absolutely a very great 👍 Villa
Thanks Jeremy and Venetia
For your excellent service before arrival.
We where 3 generations of 9 persons from Sweden and Villa Solana is outstanding in every way. The bedrooms are very clean and very comfortable, the veranda has never directly sun and it was there we spend our mornings and evenings, and the pool, we LOVED it. Thanks to the trees and parasol we had shadows if we wanted. The view was spectacular.
I can highly recommended this wonderful villa,
more fantastic than the pictures both inside and outdoors.

Thank you very much for a lovely review we enjoyed having you to stay and all the pictures you sent.
I hope you can come back again sometime
Spacious villa with fantastic pool
Lovely and huge villa, big bedrooms and living space, as well as wonderful balcony with space to eat together and space yo relax. Pool was 30 degrees throughout our stay which was great for the kids. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, and close to some great restaurants in El Coto, who also deliver to the villa. Had a fantastic time and plan to return! Also, great communications with the owner Jeremy who was super helpful and responsive.
Thank you so much for a lovely review and we are pleased you had a lovely stay, it was a pleasure looking after you and we look forward to welcoming you back.
Excellent family accomodation
We have just returned from a week at La Solana. Our family holiday was to celebrate two 'round' birthdays and it was the perfect place for our family of 8 adults, 1 teenager and 2 children. Apart from two days at the beach, we spent our days in and around the pool. The villa and gardens were spacious enough for us all to have our own space, yet we gathered on the veranda in the evenings, with a glass of wine and a game of cards
enjoying the fantastic view over Fuengirola.
Due to the size of our party, we decided not to bother with a hire car and relied on either taxis or the bus into Fuengirola. It is a 15 minute walk down to El Coto where there is a small supermarket, Pizzeria, Pharmacy, 2 reasonable restaurants (which do,takeaways) and the bus stop. The supermarket will order you a taxi back to the villa !
For shopping a hire car would be advantageous!
La Solana is well equipped for a family holiday and we would certainly return and recommend.
A wonderful week with lots of special memories.
Great family holiday
Beautiful and well appointed villa with great views from the rear terrace stretching down to the sea. Spacious and comfortable with a great pool it was the perfect base for our family holiday. Although a car will be essential the villa is handily placed between the lively Fuengirola and the beautiful Mijas each with loads of restaurants and bars , both these towns have very efficient and reasonably priced taxi services to get you home if needed. Thank you Jeremy for a very enjoyable stay all round.
