Villa overview - owner's description
RENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBER VFT/MA/01008
Calahonda is an attractive small urbanisation just 25 minutes south of Malaga airport, nestling on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean. Our villa is in a quiet residential street with spectacular views of the ocean and the mountains behind. The nearest beach is a 5 to 10 minute drive away, or if you prefer it a 20 minute walk. There are restaurants and Supermarkets in the urbanisation but for more varied shopping, the La Cañada Shopping Mall is around 10 minutes drive away. The Costa del Sol is one of the best destinations in Europe, offering a wonderful climate, plenty of beaches, golf courses, water parks, water sports, shopping, restaurants and night life as well as a plethora of places to visit all within easy reach. Amongst many other opportunities, you can choose from visits to Mijas, a charming old Spanish village high up on the hillside, Ronda an hour away up in the mountains with its spectacular views and charming ambience, beautiful Marbella (including the old town) and Puerto Banus with its harbour full of luxury yachts, the Rock of Gibraltar – a touch of old England and a fascinating place to see with its caves and monkeys - and also Morocco, taking a hi speed boat across the Mediterranean to places like Tangier or Ceiba – a chance to see another world just a few minutes ride away from the southern tip of Europe. Granada, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada is only an hour and a half away on easy dual carriageways and offers Moorish palaces and Christian Renaissance treasures. Other local attractions include the Mijas Water Park, Zip-line, Castle and Zoo, all in Fuengirola, the Cable Car, Butterfly World and Sea Life in Benalmadena and Selwo Adventure Park, Dolphin Safaris, Spanish Ballet and Flamenco Dancing.
A charming three bedroom, two bathroom air conditioned villa with south facing pool, secluded garden and glorious views of the ocean in the lovely area of Calahonda.
The villa is tastefully furnished, using carefully selected colours and fabrics. There are three bedrooms (each sleeping two), two at the back with garden and sea views and sharing a bathroom, and the master at the front with its own en-suite bathroom. A large lounge with dining area a small study/office area and a fully fitted/equipped recently modernised kitchen complete the accommodation. Patio doors lead off the lounge to the covered terrace offering wonderful views over the sea. Steps down from the terrace take you to the attractive secluded garden with shrubs and trees and a sloping lawn leading down to the oval pool. There is a feature raised tiled covered barbecue area in a corner of the garden and a spiral staircase leads up to a small and private roof terrace.
A weekly maid service with change of linen and towels is included. However, clients are required to bring their own beach/pool towels
Under 5 minutes drive brings you to the El Campanario complex, where there’s excellent supermarkets (Lidl, Super Sol) offering fresh fish, meat and bread counters. In the other direction and also less than 5 minutes away is the Strip with a 7 day Mini market and then the large El Zoco shopping complex. If you prefer to shop at the market there is one in La Cala (10 minutes away by car) every Wednesday and Saturday. During the summer season the shops all open on Sunday but outside that time you will need to use the mini shops at the petrol stations or the 7 day OpenCor supermarket chain. The nearest Shopping Mall is at La Cañada – about 15 minutes away towards Marbella.
Really you are spoilt for choice; locally along the Strip and at the 2 entrances to Calahonda are parades of restaurants offering Spanish, English, Italian, Swiss, Chinese and Indian food all serving a variety of food at great value. Then of course there are the beach bars La Luna, Pirate and Mi Capricho all on the door step but there are lots of others too many to mention here and they are all good - try the paella its what this area is famous for.
A short drive (or walk down the hill from the top end of the road) takes you to the excellent beach at Puerto Cabopino which is ideal for families as the beach is more like a UK one where you are able to wade in some distance before it gets too deep. Here you can either set up your own spot or stroll along to one of the Chiringitos (Beach Bars) which have sun beds ready laid out for you.
Calahonda has its own sports complex –Club del Sol – which is equipped with 12 tennis courts, 4 paddle courts, 4 squash courts and a 450m2 gym.
Water Sports – from Pedalo’s to Hobicats and Water Skiing to Jet Skis all are provided by licensed operators at a number of beaches, including Cabopino.
Tennis - can also be found at the Don Carlos hotel in Elviria, Club El Casco in El Rosario.
Golf - Calahonda has its own par 3 - 9 hole course at La Siesta. For the more serious golfer the Costa del Sol boasts over 30 courses set in stunning locations.
Snow Skiing - The Sierra Nevada ski resort is about 2 hours from us and the season runs from December into May. All equipment can be hired once you get there all you need is warm clothing.
OUT & ABOUT
During your stay we recommend that you head for the rustic Andalucía countryside and visit some of the Pueblos Blanco’s (white villages), perched on the top of hills with breath-taking views and stunning scenery. The Moorish city of Ronda, the caves at Nerja and the Alhambra located in the city of Granada are all worth a visit, not to mention Gibraltar and across the straights to Morocco. Malaga is a great city and the old towns in Marbella and Estepona are beautiful to explore. Mijas is a lovely white village with spectacular views and Puerto Banus has a harbour full of luxury yachts. There are so many activities available and you can book day trips, and entry tickets from our Management company office located in Elviria.
