Skandia Villa 1
from £171 /night help
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This luxury villa enjoys some breathtaking sunsets & sunrises accross the sea, and ever changing sea textures & colours. The terraces & garden can all be lit up at night, making it wonderfully inviting to sit outside with a glass of wine, or to enjoy the jacuzzi or pool when the children are in bed !
It is situated between Benalmadena old Pueblo which is full of character, and the coast, both being very close, so its easy to go anywhere from the villa. The Pueblo has shops, cafes, restaurants & bars, and is a great place to explore, with cobbled streets, a very old Church on the highest point, (where the locals get married) which is lit up at night. There is also a beautiful fairytail Castle, Castillo Colmenar, which you can visit.
This part of the coast has a huge range of things to do & see for all the family, with Benalmadena Port & its great architecture & large marina, Sea-Life Centre, Boat trips, Fishing, Diving trips, regular Ferries to Fuengirola & back, sandy beaches, Chiringuito beach restaurants, Paloma Park with animals & birds to feed, play areas etc. There are plenty of Golf Courses to choose from. Its also close to Mijas famous mountain village, and Fuengirola too, wonderful for shopping, and with a great Zoo. Tivoli World in Arroyo de la Miel, approx. 5 kms away, is an amusement park which children all love, and close to that is an Ice-Skating rink etc

The Andalucia region
Benalmadena Pueblo on the Costa del Sol has the best temperatures on the coast. It is usually better than forecasts, and is on the sheltered side of the hill. The climate is great, and even in the winter months it is more like spring & summer in the UK, with many days of sun warm enough to sunbathe. Summer is great, and you can take to family anywhere here at any time of day, without worrying about where they will accept children, because they are welcome everywhere.
Malaga has some great historical buildings, and ruins worth seeing, also a gallery, museums, cathedral, etc, and a sightseeing bus which can take you around everywhere. The "road trains" in all towns are a great way to see around without walking too far, and the horse & carriage rides are fun too. Benalmadena Pueblo & Mijas are both quaint & full of character, and worth exploring.
Visit Tourist Information to find out more, and they can tell you about open-air markets, fiestas, & lots more, there are just so many places to go & things to do !
Benalmadena Pueblo has lots of old cobbled & patterned narrow streets with pretty little houses. In Orange Square there is a fountain & several little open air restaurants - a great place for lunch. The old Church built on the rock in the Pueblo is surrounded by walkways & gardens from which there is a breathtaking view, and is all lit up beautifully at night. Castillo Colmenar is a fairytale castle built just below the Pueblo, and is captivating - well worth a visit (the locals have their wedding photos taken there!). There is also a Stupor on an elevated point whose large dome is covered in gold - very eye catching! Alot of Saints Days are celebrated here, with lights & processions.
Benalmadena Port has really interesting architecture & islands, and a huge selection of boats in the marina to drool over! They also have deep sea fishing, glass bottom boat trips, sailling, water sports, local ferry to Fuengirola, diving trips etc. In the port is the Sea-Life centre which is great for all ages, and there are shops & waterside restaurants of course. Mini-golf, bungy-jumping, feeding the fish in the marina are also great for the kids.
Along the coast alongside the beach is a wide pathway called a Paseo running from Benalmadena right through to the Malaga side of Torremolinos ! The sandy beaches run right alongside the path, dotted with Chiringuitos (beach restaurants), so if you want a nice long walk, on the level, you can walk for miles and still have refreshments whenever you want !

"Wonderful Villa with Great Owners"
We were greeted by the owners Kevin and Katrina and we were made to feel very welcome indeed. Nothing was to much trouble.
The villa is very luxurious and the photos do not do it justice. We have stayed in many villas before, but this was by far the best equipped.
It is in a peaceful location, but close to Benalmadena Pueblo and the sea.
We had a GREAT holiday.

"Great qualtiy Villa, with everything catered for"
Stayed here for a week with my family and we all absolutely loved it. The heated pool and Jacuzzi were fantastic and even though it was cold at night, the pool stayed lovely and warm. The villa was clean and well maintained and we will certainly be returning. Thoroughly recommended it!

"A very relaxing week in lovely surroundings - home from home."
This was our second visit, having been so impressed the first time. The villa is luxurious, spotless and beautifully maintained. After contacting the owner with a slight issue with the hot tub it was fixed within 2 hours. Friendly, accommodating service. A real must.
