Villa in Mijas, Costa del Sol, Spain - There simply is no other country estate that compares to ‘Fort Inglés’
About Michele Greene
16 years ago Martin and I sold up in the UK and decided with our family to start a new life in the sunshine. We spent five years designing and building our dream home. We wanted everything incorporated in the Villa that we personally enjoyed so that we could share the amenities with our family and friends. Now the children have left home and we have opened our doors for all guests. We've been so lucky to have had so many wonderful guests stay with us, many of whom have become friends.
Michele Greene purchased this Villa in 2001

A Paradise in Spain
"We stayed at your beautiful villa last week and could not have been made to feel more welcome. It was far better than we expected. Even though the pool was not heated at this time of year we spent many a happy time relaxing in the jacuzzi. We look forward to our return visit later in the year."
Thank you so much for your kind words.
It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we look forward to your next visit.
Don't forget we give a 10% discount to returning guests!
All the best,
Michele and a Martin
Great House, Very Private Location
We had a great week at Fort Ingles. We were 12 people and everyone had more than enough space in the house. The teenagers quickly claimed the game room and played endless games of table tennis and pool and loved having their own space and hanging out on the comfy couches. Everyone spent hours in the pool and the Jacuzzi and we especially loved going in around 10 or 11 pm at night after dinner. We did a lot of cooking ourselves and the kitchen was great for that – large refrigerator (and another one by the pool), two ovens, both gas and electric stove tops, multiple sinks, microwave and an outdoor bbq. We very much enjoyed the privacy of the house – truly no neighbors around – and that even though the house feels and is secluded you drive to it on a proper road which we’ve had issues with in other rentals. Michele and Martin are on the property as other reviews noted but they give us our privacy and were there to help for any issues in the house or general questions. They were very accommodating about arrival and departure times and supplied very nice fruit baskets and chocolate in the house for our arrival, which we all enjoyed. We’d definitely recommend the house for families or larger groups of people that are looking for a great place to relax, spend time together and use a base for some day trips (although hard to get the motivation to leave when it is so nice in the house!).

A fantastic week at Fort Ingles
We have just spent a wonderful week at Fort Ingles. Having seen the stunning pictures we had high expectations. We were not disappointed.
Our only regret is that we could not stay for a second week.
Thank you Alan for your kind words.
It was a pleasure having you and your delightful family and friends stay here.
We look forward to seeing you all again.
Michele, and family.
Honeymoon June 2017
Our honeymoon stay at Fort Ingles from the 23rd June for 5 days was absolutely perfect....the owners Michele and Martin and their son Charlton and daughter Chelsea made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived.........and although it was our honeymoon, we did have various members of the family and friends staying, some for an overnight stay, others longer...some for just the day, nothing was too much trouble for Michele and Martin, even when we required extra beds in one of the rooms...it was sorted without any problems,...
The villa and surrounding grounds are amazing...the pool is spotlessly clean and the jacuzzi got lots of use late at night....as did the games room....
Everything you need is there....washing machine, tumble dryer, fully equipped kitchen, bbq etc...but as well as the above, we were provided with dressing gowns, slippers, lovely fluffy bath towels, fruit, chocolates, cava and cold drinks upon our arrival and towels for around the pool....
Privacy was paramount to us....and we had it....we knew where to go if we had any questions or needed assistance (but as was the case...neither was needed)..
I cannot recommend Fort Ingles highly enough, we will definately return....as will my family who loved the place as much as we did....
I wish Michele and Martin continued success...and hope to see them next year.....
Thank you so much for all the completmentary comments you made about us and our lovely villa.
We were honoured to be part of your wedding celebrations.
We all look forward to celebrating again with you next year.
Martin, Charlton, Chelsea and I wish you both all the happiness in the world for your future together.
Fort Ingles - Idyllic..schhhh
Fort Ingles is in a perfect location and is a fabulous villa The views are stunning all around with gorgeous views from each room as well. The hosts are all frondly, helpful, discreet but on hand should you need them. Terry and Sheila had just got married and friends and family shared their stay with them over a period of 5 nights. A great games room and wonderful pool kept everyone happy. We would be happy to return and have already recommended Fort Ingles to our friends for a perfect getaway.
We really appreciate you wonderful comments.
It was such a pleasure having you all stay with us.
We very much look forward to your next visit.
Kindest regards from Michele and all of us here at Fort Ingles.
Fort Ingles was a great venue to accommodate 18 family members across three generations for my 50th birthday celebration and holiday. There was plenty of relaxing in the Jacuzzi with fantastic views of the mountains. There was also plenty to keep the little ones entertained. The house is well placed to get out and about to explore the local area and only a short drive from shops and restaurants and the beach. Owners Michele and Martin could not have been more welcoming or helpful.
Thank you Jonathan for your lovely review.
We look forward to having you and your delightful family staying with us again next year.
Wishing you all the best,
Michele and family.
