Villa Mare is a lovely peaceful place to relax and in a great location to explore the local area. Each day we would have our breakfast on the terrace (served by the extremely welcoming Renee and Maarten) then get a bus to a nearby village or town before returning to the villa to get a cold drink from the honesty bar to sit and chill by the pool for an hour or so - perfect! The villa is very comfortable and we slept very well there. Our room was not big but perfectly adequate. There is a bus stop 5 minutes walk away to get a bus into Fuengirola. There is another bus stop about 15 minutes walk away where you can catch a bus to Mijas Pueblo. Both buse trips cost €1.15, a taxi to Fuengirola was around €7. We have recommended Villa Mare to several of our friends and will definitely stay there again if we ever revisit the area.
