Our lovely villa is situated in an upmarket district of Malaga surrounded by pinewoods , yet is only a 6 minute drive tothe beach and 15 minutes from the City centre. With its tranquil setting, cool shade in the Summer heat and inviting pool, it's a welcome retreat after a busy day sightseeing! The house comprises a main floor with large kitchen, a living/dining room, two bedrooms, an office (not available to guests), family bathroom and shower room/toilet. The master bedroom suite with a pleasant sitting area and shower room is on the first floor. On the garden floor is a separate one-bedroomed apartment with living/kitchen, double bedroom and spacious shower room, so the house is ideal for two families holisaying together.
Pinares de San Anton is undoubtedly the most beautiful area of Malaga - the houses cling to the pine-covered sides of the twin peaks of Mount San Anton (known fondly as "las tetas" de Malaga - you can probably guess what that means!) At the foot of the mountain (about 2 kilometres from the house) lie the former fishing villages of El Palo and Pedregalejo, now a thriving and very Spanish suburb whose beaches are lined with lively bars and popular restaurants selling Malaga's fresh fish specialties to gregarious and noisy Spanish family groups!
Málaga is a historic and culturally rich provincial capital which has long lived in the shadow of the iconic Andalucian cities of Granada, Córdoba and Seville. Yet, it has rapidly emerged as the province's city of culture with its so-called 'mile of art' being compared to Madrid, and its dynamism and fine dining to Barcelona.
The tastefully restored historic centre is a delight: its Gothic cathedral is surrounded by narrow pedestrian streets flanked by traditional and modern bars, and shops that range from idiosyncratic and family owned, to urban-chic and contemporary. Cast your eyes up to enjoy a skyline that reflects the city’s eclectic character; church spires jostle for space with russet-red tiled roofs and lofty apartment buildings while, like a grand old dame, the 11th-century Gibralfaro castle sits grandly aloft and provides the best view of all.
The former rundown port has also been grandly rebuilt and cruise-line passengers are now boosting the city's coffers and contributing to the overall increase in tourism to the city.
