Finca Los Gorriones
from £64 /night help
Finca | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Enjoy your own private southwest-facing pool with stunning views and plenty of sunshine!
If you are after fresh air and far-reaching mountain views, whilst still being within easy access of the popular coast and all its amenities, the BEAUTIFUL Finca Los Gorriones is the one for you. The villa is less than half an hour's drive from Malaga Airport, and is set in a traditional, semi-rural area on a well-tarmacked winding road. The villa enjoys an extremely sunny, elevated position on a private 400sqm plot located between the beautiful white Spanish village of Mijas and the bustling traditional town of Alhaurin El Grande, where you can find traditional Tapas bars, restaurants, shops and local museums. Both are les than 10 minutes by car. There are also numerous golf courses within driving distance, the closest - Alhaurin Golf - being just 5 minutes drive away.
Perfect for walkers, cycling enthusiasts and families wanting to immerse themselves in the real Spain without feeling too removed from the entertainment provided by the coast.
The popular coastal town of Fuengirola is only 15 minutes by car and has direct train to Malaga Airport as well as buses to all parts of the coast. Although a car is essential to get the best out of the area, there is a traditional bar within walking distance.
SOUTHWEST FACING, secure and fully air-conditioned, our 3-bedroom converted Finca has stunning panoramic views of the valley and mountains beyond, stretching to the sea. You can enjoy the wonderful sunsets from both the lower and upper terraces.
The 2 double FRONT BEDROOMS, one of which has a large ensuite shower room, have patio doors and share the large upper terrace with spectacular views across the mountains to the Mediterranean Sea – and beyond to North Africa on a very clear day! The 3rd double bedroom has side view of the sea in the distance. There is additional access to the terrace via glass double doors on the landing and good sized shower room on this level.
THE 3x5 metre POOL is 2 metres at its deepest and has two large steps (perfect for lying on to cool down!), set in a lovely garden with wooden sun loungers. There is a private gated entrance with space for 2 cars. Although there are neighbours close by, the garden, pool area and both terraces are not overlooked and offer complete privacy.

The Andalucia region
Costa del Sol is full of beaches along its coastline and can be explored easily by car hire or public transport. A must to try are the BBQ Sardines from the beach bars and restaurants along the beach fronts. Also there are beautiful Marinas along the coast; the most local are Benalmádena, Marbella and very famous Puerto Banus with its designer boutiques.
Finca Los Gorriones is only 20 minutes drive from the nearest beaches and vibrant nightlife of Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos, and within 30 minutes drive of Marbella.
Lively Fuengirola boasts many fine restaurants, water sports, beaches, a marina and an aquapark. For those 'night-birds' there are also several discos and places of entertainment here.
There is something for everyone in this area of the Costa Del Sol. Inland can be found the 'Real Spain' of breath-taking mountain views and many 'Ventas' – the typical Spanish restaurants. The area is very popular with cyclist, with plenty of challenging routes to explore, all with fantastic views.
There are over 20 golf courses within half an hour's drive. Go-karting, Fuengirola aquapark and horse riding are all close by. Those interested in horse racing can go to the magnificent new track in Mijas. The recently refurbished Lew Hoad's tennis club is within 15 minutes drive. For those staying during the winter, skiing in the Sierra Nevada can be reached within 2 hour's drive. Clay pigeon shooting is available in Monda, which is approximately 30 minutes away by car.
The picturesque inland village of Mijas is one of the Costa Del Sol's finest examples of an historical Pueblo Blanca or 'white village'. Mijas features old cobbled streets and many places of interest, including old churches, museum, bars and restaurants, several serving authentic Spanish tapas and with stunning views of the Mediterranean coastline from its high vantage point. There are regular buses to the popular coastal town of Fuengirola, and to the traditional inland town of Alhaurin El Grande.
For people-watching, fine dining or indulging in a bit of retail therapy, Finca Los Gorriones is ideally located for visiting Marbella and Puerto Banús, both just 35 minutes away by car.

The finca has the most magnificent views in the world, and the light is so wonderful. In the evening with the sunset you can even see the Atlas mountains. We are both artists and took so many photos and will be drawing on many of these for future paintings. There are so many lovely places to visit within easy access, and we felt very comfortable there. It was a lovely place even in February, and there was a cosy fire to light at night. It is spotlessly clean, beds comfortable, and all amenities in great working order. Our little boy loved it too, and we will be back in warmer months and no doubt will use the pool. Just a gorgeous place.

What a truly wonderful place!
There is always an element of trepidation when choosing a villa for your holiday – does it look like the pictures? - will it be in a good location? Will it be easy to arrange/get there? – the answer is YES, YES and YES!!! From the initial enquiry to the final day of the holiday everything ran smoothly. Jasia was unbelievably helpful, approachable and efficient and it was like home away from home. The Finca is comfortable, clean and the little, thoughtful details are much appreciated and unexpected. The location is just lovely but the realisation of how lovely it was didn't really sink in until I was sitting with a bottle of fantastic (and ridiculously cheap) wine, eating bread and cheese on the first night watching the sun set on the most fantastic view!
I don't actually want to recommend Los Gorriones as a holiday home because I am worried that it won't be available when I want to book again (which I already have!).
You're booking with
Martina, Jasia and Stew X.
