"Beautiful property with extensive gardens. Accommodation is newly renovated, very well thought out and completed to a very high standard. Everything possible was done to make our holiday relaxing and very enjoyable. Highly recommended!¨
AnneMaria & family, from Ireland, August 2022

"Andrew provides a nice slice of heaven. Everything was immaculate, relatively spacious, and certainly met our needs. Andrew was accommodating no matter what time of day we reached out to him. He invited us to walk his lands, enjoy the views, helped us with the barbecue so that we could enjoy our own steaks, gave us access to the pool, and even shared locally raised eggs any morning. This place is worth a visit and it was not too far from any place really. We heartily recommend it to you and yours!"
Tom & Karen, on their honeymoon from Canada. May 2022

Newly available for 2021, light & airy, contemporary garden apartment with its own covered terrace, in a privileged peaceful rural location. Our estate nestles in nearly four acres of fertile hillsides with private nature trails, stunning views, beautiful trees and friendly animals to meet. Managed by experienced, award-winning, 5-star-rated on-site hosts (on Airbnb & Expedia), it includes two ensuite double bedrooms, a spacious lounge/dining room, an open plan kitchen and a private covered terrace and garden with mature plants and dappled shade.  The master ensuite bedroom, with a king-size double bed, has two sets of double french doors onto the private terrace with views towards the traditional whitewashed town of Alhaurin el Grande set against the Sierra Mijas mountains. The second ensuite double bedroom is at the rear of the apartment, built into the hillside with a window well, making it ideal for cooler summer and warmer winter nights. It has the added flexibility of a super king-size or two single beds. There is a good-sized lounge/dining area with patio doors onto the covered terrace and an open plan flow into the modern, well-equipped kitchen. There is a further outdoor kitchen worktop on the covered terrace with an adjacent large, modern gas barbeque. The same contemporary stone effect tiles run throughout the apartment and onto the terrace, giving a sense of beauty and harmony. The walls are freshly decorated in peaceful, clean white. The apartment and terrace are all on one level. Allocated secure parking is adjacent to the apartment. The nearly 4 acres of the property include 2 acres of hillside nature trails as well as a developing permaculture food forest with many citrus, nut, avocado, mango and fig trees. There are many places to sit quietly, enjoy the views and soak in the beauty of the nature-rich environment.

NEW for 2022: high-speed Wimax internet with Orbi Tri-Band Mesh WiFI 6 System - includes seamless poolside/terrace coverage ideal for remote working.

The apartment is newly listed by property owners/managers with over 20 years of experience. We are passionate about offering high-quality hospitality. You can read our five-star reviews of our UK-based holiday rental, Fern House, Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales.  The whole apartment including the covered terrace is available for exclusive use and has private access. The large saltwater swimming pool and 4-acre estate grounds are shared spaces with the host family and occasionally one other guest in our Studio Views Apartment.  We are on-site and able to answer questions about our facilities, the local area and beyond. The owners, having taken the plunge to relocate to Spain as a family, are happy to share their experience, contacts and many insights/knowledge/lessons learned along the way. The property is in a privileged area of rolling hillside between the traditional Spanish towns of Alhaurin el Grande and Coin, both towns being just a 10-minute (5km) drive away.  The Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses (ARCH), featured on TV, including "Brits in the Sun", is just a short 10-minute walk away and is open to visitors on Sunday mornings. "Alhaurin", a name given by the Moors, means "God´s garden", the area being fertile and with a pleasant winter climate. There are abundant fresh fruit & vegetables grown and sold locally and a mix of traditional Spanish people/culture and a large, established, international community. We are ideally located just a 30-minute pleasant drive from the historic centre and harbour of Malaga city, and the Costa del Sol at Marbella & Fuengirola. We are a 45-minute drive (46km) from the world-renown El Caminito del Rey with its spectacular rope walkways. We are also just 30 minutes from Malaga airport, being accessible by good tarmac roads with just the final 100 metres here being a steep concrete lane. A car is recommended for getting around, including for food shopping.  There is a regular and economical bus service from Coin and Alhaurin el Grande to Malaga.  We can also offer our Spanish country home apartment as a "medium-long stay" rental with a difference. In order to fully appreciate its ethos and ambiance, the owners outline their lifestyle below….   

"We welcome people who would benefit from a peaceful, nature-rich environment, for longer stays, sabbaticals and quiet retreats. We are affiliated with the Quiet Garden Trust and donate 5% of the rental income we receive in Spain to the local Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses (ARCH)."
