“Absolutely fantastic villa with beautiful views”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just come back from a lovely holiday in this villa, and we would definitely recommend it to others, and would consider coming back. The views from the villa are really stunning, and it's location is very peaceful. It here are three main parts to Benalmadena, the Costa (Coast), tthe Arroyo (town with shops and bars etc) and the Pueblo (village) which is really beautiful. The villa is located a 10-15 minute walk away from the Pueblo, you leave the villa, and walk uphill and follow the road round. It is a fairly steep uphill walk, so if you have anyone travelling with you who is older or whose mobility isn't great, you can always call a taxi if you haven't hired a car. We didn't hire a car, and having taken taxis to and from all parts of Benalmadena, the taxi firm we used were really reliable, prompt and inexpensive. The taxi number was given to us by Sammy, who met with us when we arrived and showed us around the villa. In terms of the villa itself, it was very clean and has air conditioning in all rooms, which works brilliantly. The kitchen is very well equipped and we made breakfast and some lunches in the villa no problem at all, there is even a coffee machine! There are several supermarkets for stocking up, there is an Aldi on the road to Mijas, a Lidl in the Arroyo and also a large supermarket as you come into the Arroyo which is probably the best if you're looking to stock up. In terms of the restaurants, we mostly went up to the Pueblo to the restaurants around the square as we found them to be good in terms of the quality of the food and the price. There is a restaurant on the square called 'La Fuente' which is good, but be warned you may well have to book a table, as they tend to be busy. Another place which deserves a mention is a bar called 'La Cepa', they also serve tapas and sometimes have live music, or flamenco dancers in the bar . It's located on a road called 'Real' which runs off the square. The Pueblo is worth a special mention because it's very traditional, and looks like a typical Andalucian village, with a sqaure at the centre of it and a small fountain, with narrow cobbled streets and a great view of the bay of Malaga when you first go up. I would also recommend that you take the train from Malaga Airportt, the train station is located across a small concourse from the airport, we paid just over 7 euros for three single adult tickets to Benalmadena , the train service is every 20 minutes and the trains are superb and air conditioned. There is a taxi rank just outside the train station and a taxi to the villa costs around 10 euros, or less depending on traffic. There is a good cafe across the road from train station which opens at 8am, and serves good coffee and churros. Just don't order a burger unless you haven't eaten for about three days, as they're unbelievably massive and could probably feed two persons! Anyway, back to th villa, they do have wifi which is good, we had a decent connection the whole time we were there. There is a TV, but it's Spanish channels only, however, there is a blu ray DVD player, so if you're taking kids on holiday, you might want to bring some DVDs with you in the unlikely event of a day of not so great weather, or for a night in in the villa if you're that way inclined. We didn't really bother with th tv the whole time we were there as the weather was completely fantastic the whole time. The villa has. Lovely feel about it because it's been restored very sympathetically and has rustic feel about it. Even without air conditioning the villa us fairly cool inside during the day because the walls are fairly thick! The gardens also deserve a special mention because they are absolutely beautiful and very well kept. There are citrus trees, fig trees (the figs are great, we did have a few..!) and a pomegranite tree, and also a large olive tree which is 300 years old. There is a mature cactus garden set within the front lawn. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, and Sammy who meets with you to show you around is also on hand for anything you might need to ask when you're there. We did call him a few times when we were there and he answered straight away, and nothing was a problem at all. All in all, we had a really great holiday and would strongly recommend this villa to anyone looking to visit Benalmadena. By car or taxi, you are no more than 10 minutes away from the town and Coast, 5 minutes from the Pueblo, but the location is very peaceful with a lovely breeze which comes from the Ocean. We would definitely consider coming back.

Thanks so much for your extensive and detailed comment. Only comment a thing: We do have european channels (english channels also ) in the parabolic of the villa. I don´t know if Sammy commented you but anyway you could have asked by the English Channels.

This was excellent value and the perfect place to stay. Within walking distance of the small town but secluded. 10 minutes drive to the Costa. Villa was lovely and clean well maintained except the air conditioning could do with servicing in 2 of the bedrooms but it did not spoil the stay. Highly recommend it to anyone

Thanks so much for your comments. The visitors didn´t tells us the problem of air conditioning. If we had known about the problem, we would have sent a technician as soon as possible to repair the air conditioning. For us, is very important the satisfaction and comfort of our visitors.

“Perfect holiday in beautiful villa, with lovely gardens and excellent pool”

This is the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. Benalmadena Pueblos is a 10 minute walk up a steep hill, but we soon got used to it. The villa was very private and peaceful, and we would go back there again - something we have never done before. The villa inside was spotless, with very comfortable beds. The pool and gardens were perfect.

First of all the location of the place is great, it is the village of Benalmadena so both the view and the atmosphere are great : very calm and superb view on the sea.
The villa is also great, nice pool, very clean , nice terrasse where we can enjoy eating or having drinks.
The villa is quite big. We were a family of 6 persons among these 2 young children and 1 teen and an elder person , the facilitaties were perfect for all of us
We are looking forward to come back there soon !

“THANK YOU for making our holiday very comfortable”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a wonderful fully equipped villa, fantastic swimming pool and beautiful gardens, just what you need for a relaxing holiday – 5 of us spent just under 2 weeks at the end of August beginning of September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

It was so peaceful at the villa with wonderful views of both the coastline and the surrounding hills. The villa is a short drive (2-3 mins) or walk (5-15 mins) from Benalmadena Pueblo (with bars and restaurants) and a 5-10 minute drive to the beach and marina. Benalmadena Pueblo dates back to the 7th Century BC so there is a lot to explore. There are a few large supermarkets dotted around which are all a short (5-10mins) drive away slightly outside the Pueblo town. One night we picked up a lovely curry take away from the Pueblo, just like being at home.

I would definitely stay here again, you have the best of both worlds: peace and quiet in the day, and a short distance to the surrounding varied night-life (2-3km) at Pueblo, Costa, the Marina or if you dare the bustling 24 hour square. The added benefit of free wifi in the villa was great as we were able to keep up to date with the news / emails and even FaceTime family members back in rainy England. One very minor thing that we thought might be nice (but we were divided on that) would be a bit of English TV in the villa.

I have to say that nothing was too much trouble for the owner, we just email him and he’d answer very quickly, he’d even offered to come to the villa if we needed him (not that we did).

THANK YOU for making our holiday very comfortable.
