Our villa is nestled in the old Spanish village of El Naranjal in Nueva Andalucia, about 10 minutes drive from the bustling port of Puerto Banus. It is surrounded by a range of high quality restaurants and four of the most prestigious golf clubs in southern Spain, Los Naranjos, Las Brisas, Aloha and La Quinta.
It was one of the very first Spanish Urbanisation built in Nueva Andalucia and still remains typically Spanish to this day, surrounded by Orange trees from where the village gains its name.
The patio has unimpeded views of the mountain, La Concha which provides a superb backdrop to any Alfresco dining or just a day of quiet sunbathing. There is seating for four and a further four chairs in the storage area to the side of the patio.
There is also an Outback BBQ available for use on request, all we ask is that it is cleaned and left as you found it before you leave, you can leave it un-cleaned but that will cost 20Euros.
For the more adventurous, on a cooler day La Concha can be climbed in about four hours and provides views you will never forget. Needless to say you will get down a lot quicker than you got up!
This is the first year we have decided to rent our home to anyone other than close friends, we have done our best to keep the house very much a home and have left a range things for you to enjoy as we do. Children's toys (Mostly boys) and DVD's are there for you to use, together with other DVD's for parents.
You will find a range of books to read and an Xbox 360 with games to play (Yes you can play on-line), for those days when you don't fancy venturing out. All we ask is that if you break or use anything we have chosen to leave, that you replace it. We have done everything we can to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive.
Our pool, which is shared with our neighbours, has recently been rebuilt to an exacting standard and provides a great place to socialise and relax while the children play in their own pool under you constant gaze.
Close by at Aloha Gardens, there is a children;s club that operate most days and can provide a welcome break for any weary parents. Both our sons have played everything from basketball to football under the close supervision provided by Mike and his team.
As I am writing this our tennis court is now being totally refurbished and should be ready to play by the end of June (15), giving you the opportunity for a little exercise should you so wish.
Our house is equipped with broadband, so if you need to do a little work or surfing you won't have to go far and the children won't have to leave their Ipads at home!
Should you be a keen golfer and do not fancy the hassle of bringing your own clubs, we have two sets available for you to hire during your stay. We charge only 50 Euros per set, which is much cheaper than bring your own and a lot less trouble. Both sets are Taylor Made and in great condition, with RAC OS irons, just let us know when you are close to booking and we will arrange for them to be in the house.
On arrival at our home you will find a notice board in the kitchen with a range of useful numbers on plus cards from all the great restaurants we have visited over the years. PS No bad ones make it to the board!
