Stunning Mock Syrian Castle with Breathtaking Views over the Mediterranean
El Castillo is the ultimate “villa with a difference” situated close to Mijas
A uniquely designed and fully refurbished in January 2017, rustic mock Syrian Castle complete with stunning master suite and huge four poster bed.
Al fresco illuminated rooftop dining with its own battlements offering breathtaking views across the surrounding countryside and mountains to 3 sides plus magnificent open sea views straight ahead and as far as Morocco on a clear day to the other. The massive rooftop terrace also has a fantastic American style illuminated hot tub. This truly is “the villa with a difference”. A wonderful peaceful and private countryside location but only 1.4 km from the shops and bars of Mijas Pueblo and a 10 minute drive from Fuengirola.
Ideally suited for all year round vacations
Pool heater, patio heater, hot tub, pool table and all interior modern appliances.… Guaranteed to please.
“Hi Allan and Julia,Just a note to let you know how much are family enjoyed staying at El Castillo in March. Without a doubt, it was the absolute most beautiful place we have ever stayed in. Plans are in effect to return and are tentatively looking at the dates, but we'll let you know. Next time, we will be looking at 2 weeks as the one went by too fast! Agnes was a wonderful help during our stay and very pleasant to deal with. We recommend a Christmas bonus for her! I have shared pictures with my associates at the hospital where I work and several have taken your web address. I hope more Canadians get to experience what we had.
Once again, thank you very much and hope to return soon.” Paul and Liz

Thank you Gaynor. We are dleighted that you enjoyed your stay in Villa SP004. We will also pass on your kind comments to the property representative.
Algemeen een heel goede vakantie gehad in deze woning
Wat was er heel goed:
De privacy van huis en zwembad. Je stoorde niemand en je werd door niemand gestoort.
De keuken: alles aanwezig en ook een grote ijskast en diepvriezer (wel zonder ijsblokjes apparaat, dat werkte niet)
De masterbedroom: groot, mooi zicht.
De badkamers bij iedere kamer waren voldoende
De jacuzzi en pooltafel op het terras
De patio beneden waar je rustig en koel kon eten s avonds, buiten.
De ruime woonkamer en hoge plafonds die het allemaal wat speciaal maakten.
Het zwembad, voldoende groot en proper voorzien van voldoende ligbedden met zachte kussens.
Wat kan verbeterd worden?
De airco kan maar 2 uur op waardoor het snachts te warm wordt, dit is misschien het meest storende.
De matras in de masterbedroom zou eens vervangen mogen worden.
De tv werkt niet goed als er nogal wat volk op internet zit
Geen wifi buiten de woning en ook niet in de bovenste slaapkamers of op het terras
Voor de rest moet je rekening houden met heel veel trappen omdat je natuurlijk logeert in een klein kasteeltje met hoge plafonds.
Deze mindere punten zijn niet van die mate dat ik niet kan zeggen dat we een super verblijf hebben gehad.
Thank you for your feedback Tony. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Villa SP004. We will also pass on your kind comments to Agnes and Phil. I hope that you will stay in one of our villas again in the future.
Lovely villa - unusual design which we liked - sometimes villas seem too much like you are staying in their home while they are away but this one was a proper holiday villa.
Property, facilities, location and views all excellent and as described. Very peaceful with lots to do locally (Mijas town is only 3 minutes away by car and has great shops, bars and restaurants). Agnes and Phil (local property management/maintenance) made us very welcome and were always on call to help out with questions etc. In summary - brilliant! A wonderful venue for a family holiday which I would recommend to anyone.
Hi Allan & Julia Just a quick line to say how much we enjoyed our second stay in El Castillo, wonderful, thank you. It really is such a peaceful location, just what we all needed to unwind, plus the kids loved the pool and slide, as did my Mum and Dad. Agnes and Phil really looked after us. We will be definitely be back!!
The help and service from the staff was amazing - we were met in the house at 2.00 o'clock at night and showed around so we knew all about the house in the morning. We stayed 9 people in the house - which had the perfect layout plan since we had three young couples with us who could have their privacy in one end of the house ... And we could have the other end with our 6 year old son - the house in it self is the perfect size for a big family and have an amazing view ...
Our 6 year old son had the best time in the pool - where he learned to swim... And our older kids with their partners had some amazing nights at the roof terasse listening to music and enjoying the view . We enjoyed sitting outside and eat in the little garden - which has the perfect temperature at night ..
You do need a car to get around which we knew when we rented the house -
We had the perfect amazing Holiday and will certainly come back again !
An excellent holiday. Property, pool and representation all very good...Agnes and Phil did a great job!
Fantastic villa in a beautiful location. Brilliant amenities provided - wonderful break.
We have had a wonderful week. The four times we had problems help came immediately. The caretaker in charge was incredibly helpful and kind. We were very happy with our stay and will recommend your house to family and friends.
Just a quick email to say how much we loved the Castle - the weather wasn't brilliant, but the Villa made up for it! The location is perfect too - very close to the airport and easy to find. Likewise, the pool and slide were brilliant fun, the big people loved it too! We thought it was great for families - we had a couple of elderly people too, and even though the stairs were tricky they still managed them. The lounge is really relaxing and the interior is of a high standard.
Thank you so much. We will be back, as soon as I can persuade my sister and her husband to come with us!
