Further details outdoors

Villa las Brisas is set on a hillside overlooking orange groves and the gardens command fantastic views towards the Sierra de las Nieves national park and the Guadalhorce Valley as far as the Sierra Nevada.

Villa las Brisas is in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas, between 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.
