Finca Los Gorriones
Enjoy your own private pool with stunning views!
If you are after plenty of 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 a very 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.
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! 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 the nearest neighbours are within 20 metres, the garden, pool area and both terraces are not overlooked and offer complete privacy.
