What was once an artist’s studio has been lovingly converted into a comfy home-from-home for families – and it’s all laid out on one level, perfect for new crawlers and curious toddlers.

Inside it is compact but has the most wonderful homely feel.  You’ll find a living room and kitchen, which lead through to the two bedrooms (a twin and a huge double), both with their own en suites.  Our favourite bit is the comfy sitting corner in the master bedroom, where you can nurse your baby or curl up with a bedtime story, but we know the little ones will love the rocking horse and cuddly toys more.

And if you’re worried about comfy sleep in the heat – there are insect screens and blackout blinds on the windows, air conditioning and ceiling fans…you might even get to sleep past dawn.

Parent point:

  • There is a single step up into the kitchen from the living room, requiring normal supervision


The outdoor space is safely enclosed in a courtyard with high walls and a lockable safety gate to the pool area.  It is all on one level so the children are free to go between the patio and the house quite safely. 

Part of the patio is covered to provide a shaded dining area, and there is a gas barbeque just crying out for a steak or two! If you fancy having someone else do the cooking one night, then why not browse the villa menu and order a delicious home-cooked meal.

There is an additional rear patio, which is partly covered, where you'll find a small play area for the little ones, with a sandpit, toys and a slide to keep them happily entertained.

This child-friendly villa is nestled within the wonderful Spanish countryside.  With the buzz of cicadas, cry of bee-catchers and the sky full of swallows, you may even see the farmer Juan with his tractor and goat herd.

Parent points:

  • The swimming pool is accessed by ladders rather than steps; normal levels of supervision are required when children are getting in and out of the pool
  • There is a large road viaduct across the top of the valley the villa sits in, this does not impact privacy or create any noise disturbance
  • The drive to Dove Villa is through beautiful mountains, but can be quite tricky in places on the rural roads.  If you are arriving after dark, your hosts can arrange to meet you to guide you in

To help you find your way around the area, the brilliant owners here have left an information pack in the villa with a guide to nearby villages, towns, restaurants and shopping centres.

Of course, the best day trip out here is to the beach – just 30 minutes in the car and it’s hello, Costa del Sol!

If you’re having a day trip out, the last thing you want to do when you get home is cook, so why not ask Susan to whip up one of her ‘Simple Suppers’ (she uses fresh veg from her garden).  She’ll even get together a separate meal for the kids if you have picky little eaters.

Another day trip favourite is the largest Aquapark in the Costa del Sol, just 35 minutes’ drive from the villa – with a choice of shallow pools and slides, which they’ll love.

Just a little further along the coast, you’ll find the award-winning Puerto Marina, with its host of trendy bars and restaurants and the Sea Life Centre, which has a fun touch-tank for your tots.

If you want to catch some cracking views while you’re here, head to El Tocal National Park (30 minutes’ drive), where you can drive up to 1,100m above sea level atop limestone cliffs: you can see out across the whole park and even to the African coastline.  And there’s a visitor centre with buttons and interactive displays for your youngsters to play with.
