Photos and Description of the Mijas vacation villa rental

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Majestic views of the Mediterranean await you. In the heart of Andalucia, Las Columnas offers easy access to the sea, 100 golf courses within driving distance and many unique home features.

Situated on a mountaintop, Las Columnas is an easy drive to not only world class sporting activities, but is also located in the heart of ancient Moorish history and culture. Las Columnas is just a short walk from Mijas, one of Spain's most famous 'white villages'.

The home's most unique feature is its 13 ancient Roman Columnas that grace the front of the home. Based on a traditional center-courtyard Moorish design, you will not only find family comfort among the spacious rooms, but also a truly soothing environment with several locations to relax in/around the home. The best time to enjoy Las Columnas is in the evening, watching the moon rise over the Mediterranean.

5 large bedrooms with a mixture of queen and twins are featured in the home to accommodate different sizes of families. 3 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. 2 bedrooms (one queen bedded rooms and one twin bedded room) are connected by one bathroom, perfect for a family with perhaps smaller children. Each bathroom has a shower while 3 of the four also have bathtubs.

Mijas, the quaint 'white village'of Andalucia, offers all the modern conveniences of grocery/souvenier shopping, plus wonderful dining experiences. Our family has always loved El Olivar next to town hall and if you are a soccer fanatic, you must watch a popular match and dine at El Canuelo. Farther into the village, you will find the old square, Spain's only square bullring and 17th century reliefs found in the town's oldest and most beautiful churches. Gardens, playground and an amphitheatre adorn this upper part of town.

Outside of Mijas, there are many cultural highlights. In a day's drive, you can visit the famous Moorish castle, Alhambra in Granada, or the high village of Ronda, or even Seville and Cordoba. Malaga, Andalucia's capital, has many cultural hotspots and a famous botanical garden in the center of the city. Don't miss some old fashioned tapas bars in Malaga. An easy train ride will bring you to the center of rhe city. For younger children, don't miss Tivoli Gardens, a wonderful amusement park, just 20 minutes west of our house. Tivoli is best enjoyed in the evening. For a slightly older age group, there is terrific nightlife in Funegirola, Marbella, and Malaga.

World famous golf courses abound in the Costa Del Sol. 10 minutes from the home is Seve Ballestores' private design, 'Alhaurin'. Mijas Golf, 10 minutes south of the house, is a 36 hole course cut from an old olive tree plantation. About 20 minutes from the house is La Cala,the winter home to the Swedish National Golf Team. Vallederama, The Ryder Cup course, is approximately 35 minutes from Las Columnas. If you are looking for a true beachside course, try Torrequebrada, about 20 minutes southwest of the house. A quaint, little course nestled in the hills northeast of Mijas is Lauro Golf-great value for money and always has open tee times.

If beach activities is what you are looking for, go no further. 8 miles above the hustle and bustle of the coast beach scene lays our home. A quick drive down the coast will put into the beach life of Fuengirola, Marbella and Estepona. Plenty of metered parking is available and a cabana for a day is about 2 Euros. The beachside restaurants offer delicious, fresh seafood and other fare.
