Villa Blanca is located at the West end of Fuengirola, very close to the Castle (see below). It is situated at the end of a small cul de sac and you have fabulous views of the sea and the castle. The orientation of the property is South which is, of course, the best. The beach, a big shopping centre (Myramar) and the town are all within a short walk. Having a car will enable you to visit further afield but you can enjoy a great holiday and access all you really need without one.
Villa Blanca has a beautiful, open-plan, split-level design making it very spacious, light and airy with sea views from most rooms. The design is quite different from the norm with high, sloped, beamed ceilings, modern tiled floors, huge double-glazed windows and French doors. The property makes use of natural wood, brickwork and plaster finishes on the inside. The lower garden, porch/terrace and pool area are reminiscent of Balinese style with wood-effect tiling and natural stone and marble. There are 6 terraced areas around the Villa giving everyone plenty of space to do their own thing.
The Villa is of course fully equipped for your stay and includes all of the necessary bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery, glasses, cooking pots and pans and utensils. There is also a washing machine, tumble dryer, clothes horse, iron and board, all of the necessary indoor and outdoor furniture including a portable barbecue (portable because there are several different terraces where you might want to eat). The kitchen is fully equipped with electric halogen cooker, electric oven, fridge freezer etc. There is also sky TV providing all of the main UK TV channels and nice large TV to enjoy them on as well as a DVD player. There is also a CD hi fi for when you need some music.
At the beginning of your stay, the Villa and all its contents will have been properly cleaned and freshly laundered bed linen and towels will be ready for you.
We do quite naturally kindly ask you to respect our property and take care of it and its contents at all times as you would your own home. Please do not take indoor furniture outside.
In particular, we ask you to take special care to be sure that all windows, doors and grills are securely locked when you go out because we do not accept any responsibility for your possessions during your stay.
For your continued enjoyment of the Villa, we need to maintain the gardens and pool regularly which means we need to access these areas during your stay. In addition, if you are staying for more than one week, we will need access to the Villa at the end of each week to change bed linen and towels. We will attend to these matters as quickly and discreetly as possible of course to ensure any disturbance is minimised.
Transport links are excellent from the Villa with bus stops in the direction of Marbella (Westbound) and Malaga (Eastbound) both within 300 metres of the Villa. The train station in Fuengirola is a little over 1 kilometre (a little over half a mile) from the Villa.
The owner, David Greene, a British Chartered Accountant, lives in Fuengirola too so he is just a few minutes away from the Villa. He also makes a point of welcoming his guests personally on arrival, showing them around and handing over keys etc.

|Further details indoors||
There is zircon in the dining area and in the twin bedroom. The house faces south and there are no west-facing windows which is the offending orientation for 'greenhouse-effect' heat build up. Consequently the villa remains cooler inside and one does not have to close all doors and windows in the normal way to get the benefit from air-conditioning.
The three bedrooms are all doubles and with three bathrooms or shower/rooms, everyone has their own privacy and space. The large lounge and dining room totals 52 m2 (some 550 sq ft) so there is plenty of space for dining and relaxing. The kitchen breakfast room offers plenty of room too at 22 m2 (some 240 sq ft). There are great sea views from most rooms and the fabulous beach is 4 minutes walk. Location is an important factor to get the most out of your holiday and at Villa Blanca, with its beautiful private pool and gardens located so near the beach and only 7 mins walk to a large shopping mall and supermarket, the same distance as from the town, means a car is not indispensable.
|Further details outdoors||
The lower garden, porch/terrace and pool area are reminiscent of Balinese style with wood-effect tiling and natural stone and marble. There are 6 terraced areas around the Villa giving everyone plenty of space to do their own thing. There are chairs and loungers and lawned areas so there is plenty of space for sunbathing.
Villa Blanca is available for holiday rentals all year round at the weekly rates set out further below. The villa is available for groups of up to 6 people. However, there is also a travel cot so an extra infant over this number is no problem.
The whole property is privately owned so none of the facilities are shared with others.
I started letting Villa Blanca to holiday-makers in 2007. Over the years, I have carefully maintained the property and its contents and have received so many compliments that I have lost count. Location, standards, size, views and facilities are the most important aspects of a holiday property and I believe Villa Blanca scores very highly on all counts. My guests seem to think so too.
There are some steps from the garden entrance that lead down to the Villa which, internally, is split levelled so we do not think our property is suitable for wheelchair-bound persons or others with severe mobility problems.
The Costa del Sol region
Fuengirola is approximately 20 kms West of Malaga airport and is a busy, thriving, fast-growing, lively town with appeal for all age groups. It boasts great beaches all the way from Los Boliches at the East end of town to and beyond the 1200 year old Moorish Castle at the West end. There are hundreds of restaurants and bars of all types and standards and all types of cuisines can be found. Night life is great fun too with dozens of night clubs or discos, a number of which have shows or live music of different types on a regular basis. The Mijas racecourse (horse-racing) is only three kilometres away too and has lots of bars and restaurants too.
Remember that Marbella, Malaga city, Benalmadena, Mijas, Torremolinos, Cabopino, Puerto Banus are all with a radius of 25 kilometres of Fuengirola. Be aware too that Ronda, Gibraltar, the Lakes and mountains of El Chorro, Granada (Alhambra Palace) and many other super places to visit can be accessed easily by car or on one of the many coach excursions on offer. The Costa del Sol boasts some 40 golf courses so you are close to one wherever you are.
Nearby there is also the Lew Hoad tennis club, several riding stables, Fuengirola’s aquapark and, in Benalmadena, there is the Amusement Park Tivoli World. The list of bars, restaurants, night clubs, sporting activities, parasailing, beaches, historical places of interest, is endless and too many to list here. Please feel free to check out the website www.visitafuengirola.com which is one of many websites that give lots of useful information on the huge range of amenities and facilities available locally. Many consider Fuengirola to be the best resort town on the Costa del Sol based on its central location on the coast and proximity to the airport, complete infrastructure, full range of facilities, its beaches, general standard of presentation, transport links and competitive pricing.
