Charming, Serene and Perfectly Formed
We found this little gem by accident but so glad that we did! After a 30 minute drive from the Airport following the simple directions that Maureen the owner sent to us, we arrived at our charming accommodation and were greeted by our host and her two lovely, friendly boxer dogs, Bobby and Rosie. Maureen is the true professional and leaves her guests to do their own thing yet is always at hand with a friendly smile if there is a need for assistance.
The amenities at Casa Limones are perfectly adequate with a great shower, large Fridge Freezer, very comfy bed and views to match that of any high-end Hotel but with the added bonus of no loud families, lovely silent evenings and the freedom to come and go as one pleases. The perfect place to re-charge the batteries.
It is located just 15 minutes drive from the charming sea side town of La Cala with its great restaurants and charming shops. Fuengirola is only another 15 minutes drive away with Marbella the next large town along the coast line. Mijas is also a must see town nestled in the Spanish hill side and again, just a 10 minute drive away. Within a couple of days we had a great routine worked out and settled into our wonderful, peaceful, Holiday. Short simple drives to great towns and villages then back to our gorgeous little bolt hole for a glass of wine on the terrace to watch the sun go down…. Perfect!…Just Perfect!!
We stayed in one of the two one bedroom villas at this peaceful venue. Our villa was well equipped and gave us three different areas to sit outside to eat or enjoy the stunning views and spectacular night sky. The shared pool area was beautifully landscaped giving privacy to each couple.
While there we took advantage of the proximity to Malaga, Marbella and Fuengirola all of which are well worth visiting.
Maureen was a lovely friendly host who gave us the space and peace we were looking for.
We highly recommend this venue if you just want to chill out and relax

A wonderful week was had by all
This was our second visit to these wonderful little cottages had Casa Limones in 2013? and returned this year to Los Olivos. Maureen made us most welcome, she often asks what you would like in a welcome pack, to which she obliges to the closest requested. We chose Los Olives this time for the never ending views across the mountains where we watched glorious sunsets with a glass or two of a perfect Tempranillo, we managed to explore some of the local restaurants in both Mijas and the surrounding area, a car is required for a stay here, but, ours was only used in the late afternoon and evening I will be returning as it is the perfect place to recharge the batteries, might even try a winter month next time
What a wonderful relaxing peaceful place for a holiday. The accommodation is delightful, and the host was extremely helpful. We’ll definitely be returning.
Wonderful in all ways. Exactly what we expect from an Alastair Sawday’s recommendation. Maureen is the perfect host and owner. Thoroughly recommend if you want a remote chilled out experience
