A lovely villa full of the flavours of Spain

El Cerro de la Matriche is approached via a private driveway, the property is fully fenced and gated. There is an orchard with many fruit trees ... ideal for finishing off your G&T with a slice of lemon!

The accommodation is on two levels. You enter El Cerro into a spacious, traditionally furnished lounge that has IPTV - TV via the Internet (see our FAQ page for what channels you can receive). WiFi Internet is also provided.

Leading from the lounge/dining room is a fully fitted kitchen that has an electric oven & hobs (stove tops), microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and dishwasher. The washing machine is located in the garage.

Immediately outside the lounge is a shaded terrace with dining for six ... this area has fabulous views towards the Mediterranean with Africa in the far distance. Next to the terrace is a built-in Andalucian style charcoal BBQ and 'summer kitchen'.

Also on the level are the two attractive twin bedded rooms both of which have air-conditioning. These two bedrooms share a bathroom that has a bath, a walk-in shower, wc and basin.

The 3rd 'master' bedroom is located on the 1st floor. This bedroom is also air-conditioned and has an en suite shower-room with a walk-in style shower, wc and basin. This bedroom also has a south facing private terrace.

Relax by the pool whilst soaking up the Andalucian sun

The pool area is fully gated, the size is approx. 7m x 5m and has child friendly Roman style steps leading into the shallow end. Ample sun beds are provided.

Outdoor living is a big part of the lifestyle in Spain, with the year round warm weather this is where you will spend most of your vacation.

Lazy lunches and memorable dinners!

Dine al fresco ... with in excess of 320 days sunshine a year, you are practically guaranteed perfect weather for a BBQ. shaded terrace at El Cerro is a lovely area to sit and share a long leisurly lunch with friends and family. Why not BBQ some local fish bought at the market in Mijas Pueblo & sample some of the many excellent inexpensive wines & beers that Spain has to offer. After lunch the only choice to be made is ... do you relax on a sun bed or seek a quiet spot away from it all for an afternoon siesta.

Explore the Andalucian countryside

Or if cooking is too much like trouble, why not explore the countryside and visit one of the many inexpensive Ventas (typical Spanish restaurants) dotted around the countryside. One just 10 minutes away is called Venta Los Morenos, (you will have passed it on your way from the airport to the villa). The best place is to sit outside on the terrace near the barbacoa (BBQ). It’s busy, it’s noisy, its typically Spanish. Children are more than welcome; the BBQ is fantastic, but be warned ... on Sunday don’t expect your meal to appear all at once. If you feel brave try the Iberian prey off the BBQ (and please let us know what it is!)

The white village of Alhaurin el Grande has been habited since Neolithic times and is now a bustling village with shops, deli, market and many restaurant and tapas bars offering good value for money and not to mention legendary Spanish spirit measures!

There is plenty to see and do in this area ... the drive to the historic town of Ronda is one not to be missed ... and the famous Alhambra Palace in Granada is an interesting 2 hour drive. If the glitz of Puerto Banus and the shopping or beaches in Marbella is more your thing ... then the 'new' road will have you there in under 30 minutes!

Property Guest Book

"Good afternoon

We had a 2 week stay at El Cerro from 20 August 2018; just wanted to say what a beautiful villa it was, perfect!

This is the first time we have booked through Mijas Villas and it was an absolute pleasure. Hassle free, seamless communication and genuine empathy and understanding when my mother was diagnosed with cancer.

The owners of the villa came to do the gardening a few times during our stay and they were really lovely people.

We would love to stay in this villa again"
