We have just returned from a blissful ten day break in Los Olivos, a lovely cottage in La Atalaya/ Mijas Costa in Andalucian Spain. The vistas of the mountain ridge from here are stunning, perfect for gazing upon as you sip your Sangria at any time of day, sun-up to sunset, from under the shade of the veranda or the warmth of the sunbeds.
The cottage itself has been built with authentic Spanish style to make it more than just a base for touring to other locations. Designed for just two guests in either cottage you can spend the day relaxing around the cool, clean pool admiring the landscaped oasis with a variety of cacti and palms on one side and the mountainscape on the other.
Your host, Maureen, has a friendly, very well behaved dog that you may see a few times over the duration of your stay.
The cottage is situated near numerous villages and beach venues so there are plenty of places to visit, though none are within walking distance so a car is essential. There are plenty of excellent recommendations from Maureen for daytime and evening activities in the cottage info book. Local beaches, restaurants, supermarkets, etc are all covered.
Being up in the mountains Los Olivos is a climb for vehicles so I would recommend nothing smaller than a 1.4 litre engine when hiring and you should be able to do any touring in the area without any problems.
The directions given to Los Olivos and Casa Limones, its twin, are the best ones to follow as the SatNav would not find it first time due to its rural setting but once there and location saved will be fine.
Overall we found it the most relaxing of locations to spend our holiday and will most certainly be returning.

We spent ten days in Los Olivios
In May. I can honestly say it was the most relaxing holiday we ever had. So private, stunning views over looking the olive groves. The little Finca was perfect. So cute & cosy with everything we needed at hand. Our stay was made all the more enjoyable by Bobby the boxer joining us for alfresco breakfast each morning!
Maureen has really thought of everything & is there next door if you need anything.
We have wonderful memories from our time there & I have a feeling we will go back soon.... A little piece of paradise away from this crazy busy world! I miss that little Finca:)
Thank you lovely Maureen

We spent a well earned week at Casa Limones and were not disappointed... Peaceful with a view that you would never tire of, it was just what we needed. Lovely little cottage and pool, can't wait to return..

We loved this place so much that we have come back a second time! Maureen is a wonderful hostess, and has set up both these cottages beautifully.

We have stayed in both, and they are lovely. Both have their own charms, and we can't decide which one we prefer.

The pool is is very relaxing, and has lovely views over the hills, and the location is perfect for exploring the area.

This could be our last visit for a while though, as our baby daughter is 6 months old and the setup here is better for couples, rather than young children. But we will be back!

We have just returned from a quick break of 6 days over the 2015 New Year, staying in Los Olivos, which does everything it says on the tin! The setting is perfect, the location ideal, and the cottage and all the fittings excellent and tastefully designed.
It is well equipped with everything you could want for a relaxing holiday, and has the added bonus of an experienced hostess in Maureen who makes you feel most welcome, with a thoughtful welcome pack in the fridge.
Then there's the added charming company of Bobby and Bella, the boxer dogs who love to join you for a relaxing snooze in the sun at breakfast, and accompany you for a stroll around the countryside. Well mannered and friendly, they enhanced the holiday for us.
Highly recommended!
