Villa Ricanda is situated just 1.5km from the popular beach resort of Fuengirola and only 20 minutes drive from Malaga International airport. It is a large, detached property with far reaching views to the South West.

The entire ground floor of the villa is self contained and reserved for guests, giving you the “feel” of your own private house with separate entry and exit doors. The accommodation comprises 7 high quality, twin-bedded rooms with ensuite walk-in shower rooms. Two of the rooms are large enough to additionally accommodate a third full sized bed. Six guest bedrooms are air conditioned and open out onto the patio with lovely views of the gardens and beyond, and together, provide comfortable living arrangements for up to 16 discerning guests. Rooms 5 and 6 have interconnecting doors giving the opportunity of a 2 shower room suite to sleep up to 6 people. Additionally we have a 1 bedroomed Casita in the grounds, see Villa Casita on this site, which could sleep an extra 4 people making a maximum of 20 altogether. The Casita is rented separately and shares the pool.

There is an exclusive, brand new and fully equipped kitchen with 2 ovens, 2 fridges, twin sinks and a large electric hob. There is also a large sitting / dining room that opens out onto the terrace. This overlooks spacious, mature gardens where you can find a large fish pond with fountains, large lawns, tall palm trees, cacti, and sub-tropical fruit trees including orange, lemon and mango. The gardens also contain beautiful bougainvillea, hibiscus and olive trees, and there are plenty of comfortable sun loungers so that you can relax in either the sun or the shade. In addition, there is a swimming pool. The twin beds can be pushed together to produce double beds if preferred. Cots and high chairs can be provided on request.

In 2013, the entire ground floor of the villa has been completely refurbished to a high standard, with new electrics, plumbing, lighting, shower rooms and furnishings. This includes new flooring throughout and new tiling in the shower rooms.

For your enjoyment you have a choice of numerous board games, books and DVDs. Free Wi-Fi is available, though the signal strength is stronger in some areas of the villa than others due to the Spanish system.

Outside

Swimming pool - The pool and gardens are south facing. The pool has no shallow end, being about 2m deep throughout and is therefore suitable only for confident swimmers as it is not supervised. We do provide a selection of pool “toys” – inflatables, balls etc and also provide a net across the middle of the pool enabling water volleyball to be played.

Guests are requested not to use the bath towels provided in guest bedrooms for use outside,

Outside shower – There is an outside shower, built into an alcove with a volcanic rock featured appearance and is conveniently situated close to the pool for guests to use before and after swimming.

Outside lighting – garden lighting is provided around the grounds and driveway.

Pool Table – There is a full sized, pub type, pool table outside on the patio available free for all guests.

Quietly nestled in the leafy suburb of Sierrezuela, it provides easy access to more than 20 local golf courses and many fabulous beaches. It has two floors; the owners live entirely on the first floor of the villa and have separate entry doors so that you are not disturbed.

All School holiday weeks, July and August are reserved for full week bookings only. Otherwise the minimum stay is 3 nights for the whole ground floor of the Villa.

The Andalucia region

The Costa del Sol, situated on Spain's southern coast and stretches over 150 kilometres from Nerja in the east to Sotegrande in the west. The Costa del Sol is a province of Malaga and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations. The mild climate is the main attraction that makes it possible to enjoy the beaches and a wide variety of outdoor activities all year round. This region of Spain has paid host to a number of visitors throughout the ages and remnants of these ancient civilizations can still be found today.

The western Costa del Sol coastline, which stretches for 100km, begins at Malaga city heading west, bordering the province of Cadiz.

Malaga airport is just a 20 minute drive from Fuengirola along the main highway which is easily accessible. Local trains start at Malaga central and terminate at Fuengirola. A regular shuttle service every 30 minutes which is modern, reliable and above all, cheap! See below for more details.

The beaches in Torreblanca and Fuengirola are maintained to a high standard. Free fresh water public showers are provided all along the beaches. There are also pedalos, sun loungers and sun shades widely available. Whichever beach you're on there is always a bar or restaurant very close by!

There are miles of clubs, bars, cafes, restaurants and fine sandy beaches along the coast. For the cultural visitor, the highlights are the beautiful cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada where there are some of the highest mountains in Europe (including Europe's southernmost skiing resort, Sierra Nevada - snow permitting!)
