"A very relaxing break."
I have just returned from a very relaxing break at The Villa Mar studios. As I am female travelling alone I obviously want to feel safe and secure, at these studios I did. There were outside lamps on the short hill up to the property, security lights at the outside gate and also at the steps leading to the studios. There were outside lights on until the early hours surrounding the studio block. There was a security code at the gate and a very secure front door to the studio. The family lived above and were available if there was an emergency.
The actual studio consisted of a large lounge / bedroom area complete with an English television and air conditioning, plus an adequate kitchen with fridge, microwave, kettle and gas rings. The bathroom was equipped with a shower which had hot water available at all times plus a clean towel. There was a very pleasant outside area with a table and chairs where I spent many an evening relaxing.
The property was situated within a five minute walk to the beach. There I found numerous bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. There were also local supermarkets nearby, plus some smaller British ones.
I used the local trains, about a 15 minute walk to the station, and visited Fuengirola, Los Beliches , Malaga and the shops at Plaza Mayor. The trains and cheap and so reliable, every 20 minutes. There was also a bus service with bus stops very close, although I personally didn't use these.
For anyone who wants good value for money these studios are an excellent choice, I will be back!
