Perfect for 2 Families, this villa is a real ‘home from home’

As you enter Palacio Melanie into the large hallway the double doors in front of you lead to a large central covered courtyard. This courtyard has a Moorish feel & has a stylish square dining table with leather chairs.

There is a spacious games room with an American style pool table … shoot some pool whilst shooting the breeze with friends and family after a memorable meal.

The living areas are located around the right-hand side of the courtyard. The lounge with large patio door opens up directly onto the terrace. The lounge has two leather sofas and two comfortable leather lazy chairs, there’s plenty of space to relax and watch TV (IPTV - TV via the Internet) or watch a DVD. There is also an adsl WiFi wireless Internet connection (please bring your own tablet/laptop).

The kitchen is spacious and located next to the lounge. It is well designed with granite work tops, larger style fridge freezer, ceramic hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher. There is everything here you would expect to find at home.

There is a seperate utility area with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The 4 en suite bedrooms are all located around the left side of the courtyard. These comprise of 2 twin en suite bedrooms (one with walk-in shower, the other has a bath with a shower over the bath), 1 double with en suite bathroom (with a bath and walk-in shower) and the larger master bedroom with en suite bathroom featuring a sunken bath and separate walk-in shower.

Living the Andalucian Way

The fabulous pool at Palacio la Mente, Alhaurin The patio is next to the lounge & overlooks the pool

Directly outside the lounge is a shaded terrace that overlooks the pool … a perfect for a place to start your day with breakfast or relaxing in the swinging chair whilst reading your newspaper.

The large pool has Roman style steps, perfect for children to splash about on. There are plenty of sun beds around the pool for relaxing and for the more active there is the table tennis table.

Centrally located yet away from it all

The built-in Andalucian style BBQ & shaded dining area is next to the pool - share a long relaxing al-fresco lunch with friends and family. Iberico pork is particularly good here and ribs in BBQ sauce a particular favourite of mine. Fish is also plentiful and fresh, the fish & sea food counter in the supermarket has a fabulous choice. The wines of Spain are fantastic, what a better way to spend an evening than to sample different Riojas and Cavas.

If cooking is too much like hard work then Palacio la Melanie is only 250 metres from the excellent Venta Los Candilles, the weekday lunch time menu is particularly good value and the mussels in saffron sauce are AMAZING! Also within a 5 minute drive is ‘La Finca’, a recent discovery of ours and a ‘must try’, the lamb was particularly good.

Palacio La Melanie is situated in Alhaurin el Grande, a typical Spanish 'White Town' ... quieter than the coast yet uniquely positioned for discovering the beauty of Inland Spain and the coast. This is Spain how it used to be.

There are lots to see and do in the area. They don’t call it the Costa del Golf for nothing, the Seve Ballesteros designed Alhaurin golf course is just 10 minutes by car as are the riding stables and tennis courts at the Alhaurin Golf & Country Club.

We are just home from 10 days at the villa and we had an amazing time. The villa more than met our expectations and we would definitely recommend/return. I will post the keys back to you tomorrow.
Many thanks from us all for a great holiday at your villa."
