Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Just 3km from Coin and Alhaurin el Grande, this well-maintained cosy villa sleeps up to six with two double-bedded rooms (one with en suite shower room) and one twin room. There is a further shower room, a modern well-equipped kitchen and a dining/sitting room with satellite TV (main UK stations and free-to-view), CD player and video.
An added bonus is that the villa is fully wheelchair-friendly, with ramps from the driveway into the house and the main bathroom being wheelchair accessible. To the front of the house is a massive sun room - looking on to the pool and garden - with a "summer kitchen", dining table and chairs and sofas.
At the moment there are shallow steps into the pool (no ramp), but we are planning to install a hoist for summer 2007. For out of season holidays, there is a wood burning stove in the sitting room and further heating via the air conditioning units.

The Andalucia region
This delightful corner of Andalucia enjoys the best of all worlds, being just 25 minutes' drive away from the busy coastal resorts with their ample tourist attractions and nightlife, while offering visitors the opportunity to explore the wonderful countryside right on their doorstep and experience traditional Spanish customs and village life in the local towns of Coín and Alhaurin el Grande.
Sunshine can be guaranteed from May to September, and it is mostly warm and sunny in April and October. At other times there may be cooler days and the odd spell of rain, but these mid- and low-season months hold many advantages for those who want a more active holiday - a time when you can golf, walk, cycle or horse ride without searing heat sapping your energy!
This and most of our other villas are situated in and around the typical Andalucian towns of Coin and Alhaurin El Grande. As well as many shops, bars and restaurants, regular local festivals and weekly markets bring their church squares and narrow whitewashed streets to life. Alhaurin has been famous for its bread since Moorish times and there is a Moorish watermill just outside the village.
Just a short drive away are the equally charming, and much smaller, “white villages” of Monda and Guaro. The former is dominated by the ancient Castillo de Monda (now a successful hotel and restaurant) and the town is an artists’ haven with its Moorish architecture and narrow winding streets. Guaro is less cosmopolitan and offers a true taste of Andalucian village life.
GOLF AND TENNIS:
Alhaurin Golf (15 mins) - a beautiful 18-hole championship-standard golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros, with wonderful mountain views and luxurious facilities. Tennis is available at the adjoining hotel.
Lauro Golf (20 mins) - 27 holes overlooking the Guadalhorce valley. Relaxed atmosphere in the typical cortijo-style clubhouse.
Mijas Golf and Santana Golf are 30 minute's drive from Alhaurin, and at least 20 more of the Costa del Sol's golf courses can be in reached in 20-45 minutes.
HORSERIDING - the beautiful Andalucian countryside can be explored on horseback, using safe tracks, from several riding schools in the area.
BIRDWATCHING - among the birds to be seen regularly in this part of Spain are eagles, buzzards, owls, hawks, partridges, golden oriels, bee-eaters, hoopoes, swifts and swallows. The Laguna Fuente de Piedra, the most important flamingo nesting site in Spain, is near Antequera, just an hour's drive away.
WALKING - there are extensive walking trails throughout the nearby Sierra del las Nieves, including the spectacular walk to the summit of La Concha which gives panoramic views of the whole Costa del Sol from Gibraltar to the Sierra Nevada and across the Mediterranean to the African Coast.
SKI-ING - during the season many of our guests enjoy a day trip to the slopes of the Sierra Nevada, a couple of hours away.
