Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa Bruja (the bewitching villa) is ideal for a long or short stay at any time of the year. It benefits from glorious mountain views and is located directly on Alhaurin Golf course. The villa is close to the clubhouse and local bar/restaurant, and only 3km from the bustling Moorish town of Alhaurin El Grande with all facilities. There is a large private heated pool with its own toilet and shower room and gas barbecue, and attractive lighting to entice you to enjoy an evening dip.
Our well-equipped semi-detached villa has full air-conditioning, and substantial areas of both sunny and shaded terracing from which you can enjoy the views in all directions, and especially across to the hills and setting sun in the West. Wireless internet (wifi) is available all over the villa and patios.
Ground floor: large dining /sitting room with lovely views across to the hills, TV & DVD player, kitchen + w/m, d/w, microwave and f/freezer, and there is also a downstairs toilet. Unfortunately, it is not possible to view UK TV channels because they were switched to a new satellite in Feb 2014, and this is inaccessible from the whole of the Costa del Sol.
Upstairs: three twin bedrooms and family bath/shower room. Two bedrooms have stunning views, one with balcony and the other with its own en-suite bath/shower room. Pool heating is available on request 1 Apr - 30 Oct at a small extra charge. Free off-road parking and arrival pack on request.

Casa Bruja was built to a high standard in 2003 with full air-con, all mod cons, one bedroom with en-suite and a well-equipped kitchen. The rooms are bright and airy and most have stunning views of the beautiful sourrounding scenery. There are polished marble floors throughout, and all facilities are as described in the tick-boxes.
We offer a full wifi service via an Alcatel Y580 Onetouch device which is compatible with any laptop with wifi capability, ipads, tablets, smart phones etc. It typically provides downloads speeds of up to 5MB/sec and has excellent local signal strength; it is available if booked in advance, and on payment of a GBP/EUR100 refundable deposit. If you have booked this service, our agent will loan the device to you for the duration of your stay. There is no charge for the first 1GB (1000MB) of data transferred per week, but each 1MB over 1000MB costs 4p (GBP 0.04) so for example, a 2000MB data transfer during the week would cost a total of GBP 40.00. If any charge is due, it will be deducted when the deposit is repaid, which will be within 7 days of your departure. The device incorporates a data counter (which resets when it is switched off), and the usage statistics are also accessible over the internet.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to view UK TV channels at the villa because they were all switched to a new satellite in Feb 2014, and this satellite is invisible from the whole of the Costa del Sol.
|Further details outdoors|
There are large areas of sunny and shaded patio at the front and back of the villa. There are glorious views to the front overlooking the mountains and the golf course, while the back benefits from a large private heated pool with Roman (semi-circular) steps at the shallow end. The pool area has its own WC and shower room with hot and cold water, gas bbq - every facility for a relaxing holiday!
The private pool (8M x 4M, 1.4-1.8M) is available from April - October. Optional pool heating is available if required at GBP 30-60/week., depending on dates. Heating is an enjoyable luxury at any time, and is recommended during April, May, ? June, Oct.
We assume that guests will arrive at the villa at any time BETWEEN 15:00 and 20:00 on their first day, and will leave by 11:00 on their last day; this gap gives us time to clean the villa between guests. If your plans are different from this, it's ESSENTIAL to negotiate with the owners before placing the booking.
A welcome pack will be provided on request, or you can stop at a large supermarket which is directly on the route from the airport and is open till about 21:00 (Mon-Sat).
We provide a detailed house guide to all guests, together with route instructions to enable you to find our villa easily from Malaga airport, and our English-speaking local agent will be delighted to meet you on arrival and show you round.
The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol contains Europe's sunniest beaches and some of its most elegant resorts such as Marbella & Estepona. Alhaurin Golf is only 30 minutes from Malaga Airport, 20-30 minutes from the sandy and attractive La Cala & Fuengirola beaches, and about 40 minutes from Marbella.
We are only 6km from the famous Andalucian hillside village of Mijas, which is a UNESCO world heritage site.
The area provides many bars, quality restaurants and major shopping centres, while the bustling Moorish town of Alhaurin El Grande (meaning the great Garden of Allah) is just 3km away. The villa is well sited for day trips to Marbella, Puerto Banus Estepona, Malaga, Nerja caves, Ronda, Antequera, Toledo and Granada's world-famous Alhambra. The whole family will enjoy an outing to Tivoli World at Benalmadena, where there is an amazing cable car which rises 700M up a local mountain. You can also escape to the very attractive mountains and lakes of El Chorro & Ardales, where part of a Bond film was made.
Granada also offers skiing at up to 3000M, with several cable cars and ski runs at every level of difficulty, and the snow usually persists till end-April.
Alhaurin Golf Resort
Casa Bruja offers the perfect compromise between total relaxation and energetic sighseeing! The large private heated pool, wonderful views and local facilities are there to be enjoyed, or you can use the villa as a base for day (or longer) trips to many of the fascinating local Moorish villages and towns.
Casa Bruja is situated at an altitude of 340m on the prestigious and challenging Alhaurin Golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros. It is directly opposite Tee 12, and reduced green fees can be arranged through the English owners, who will be delighted to provide tailored information about the local area. There are three golf courses in the immediate vicinity, and a further 40 courses within about 25km. Golf clubs can be hired on the course.
Alhaurin Golf Hotel (****) is about 300M from the villa and offers excellent food and bar facilities in a delightful rural setting, and also hires out its tennis courts. The resort has a small convenience store open till late while the local BP petrol station also sells a useful range of essentials.
Golf, walking and horse-riding are nearby; hill-walking and cycling are popular local activities, though some hills are quite steep. Boating and scuba-diving are available in Marbella.
Many more details of local facilities are provided in an owner's guide which is sent to all guests.

"Lovely and quiet with beautiful views"
First time we've stayed in a villa and weren't disappointed. It was big enough for all 3 of us to rattle around in, clean, well furnished, private and nice and quiet.
We travelled with a 13 year old and she loved the pool and the fact she had her own bathroom next to her bedroom with a balcony providing a great view.
Everything you need is supplied and previous guests graciously leave items they don't need when they leave, so villa is well stocked.
Pool area is large and capable of seating a lot of people and has various inflatables for the pool along with a barbecue and other equipment. It also has a separate enclosed shower room with sink and toilet. The pool is heated but takes a while for it to reach a decent temperature, well for the temperature to be acceptable to me, however, the 13 year we travelled with completely disagreed! Also, if the weather was hotter I think it would have helped raise the temperature somewhat.
We hired a car as we like to get to as many places as possible whilst on holiday. I would recommend Malagacar.com which was probably the best and fastest service we have ever received by a hire company, in and out in 10 minutes and NO excessive credit card deposits taken. When you return the car they even drop you off at the airport in it , it is just across the road however, but from arrival at their site to the airport, it takes less than 5 minutes.
Alhaurin del Grande centre is 5 minutes away by car and has a good supply of shops restaurants and supermarkets for all your needs, but obviously there are many more further afield. There are a great many places to visit in southern Spain and the villa has a good supply of guides proving information on where to go. Fuengirolla and the beaches are around 30 minutes drive away and have the usual supply of shops bars and restaurants.
The directions to the villa are supplied by the owners upon booking and are very easy to follow. The drive from Malaga airport was around 30 minutes and upon arrival we were met by Christina who gave us a tour of the villa. She gave us her number to contact her if we had any questions or queries, but we had none. Checkout is also painless, simply sending Christina a text message confirmed what we had to do.
Pictures of villa are a true reflection of the accommodation and we would definitely return next year.
Try it, we're sure you'll like it, and we hope you have a good holiday

"La villa est belle, idéalement située dans un quartier agréable."
La vue à partir de la terrasse est enchanteresse. La villa comporte tout ce qu'on peut souhaiter (sauf des chaines de TV autres que anglaises), la piscine est chauffée. On y est comme chez soi … More

"Excellent accomodation, lovely area, couldn't have asked for more"
The villa was well equipped and we were pleased with the privacy it afforded us. Also, with a baby, we were keen to be somewhere quiet and away fom too much hustle and bustle but close to amenities. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return again. English telly was a huge plus too.
The property is well located to explore Andalucia and the Costa Del Sol.

"We love it, is one of the nice places we know!"
My english is not so good, I hope I found the right words. We are Golf players and love the Alhaurin Golfclub. We get a monthly membership an like ist very much.
We are German, we not able to use the gasgrill.
If you are German too, take some DVD;s with you, because there ist only english televison.
We hope we will come back next year!
Thank you - I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the gas barbecue - it definitely works well, so perhaps the (English) instructions were not clear enough. I will ask for a German translation.
