Florence had this house built for her familily after she draw it then followed the contruction in order to monitor every aspects of different stages of the villa progresses. Flo's work still prevent her to settle in this region with 300 sunny days a year. Let other people use this house became quickly obvious and that's why it's now available to anyone.
Flo purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Flo chose Mijas
The Costa del Sol area is kind of goal to reach in Europe because it's close to important points of interest in the old World. Southern Spain offers a real possibility to relax when it's possible to live in such a house: a brand new villa using new technologies allied with ecologic energy sources. This construction is not only architectly designed but is also 'easy'to 'live in.'

Brand new villa designed by the owner in order to use it in a very practical way forgetting the maintenance tasks thanks to a sofisticated domotic installation to live ecologically in harmony with the Costa del Sol ambient.

Amazing villa, 5* luxury
We stayed here in September and had a wonderful time. Great location, perched up on a hill with great views over the bay & mountains. Lovely views of the sun rise from the roof terrace over the sea.
Villa and pool were amazing. So well appointed, like staying in a 5* hotel. Every bedroom and room was finished to an amazing standard. Outside the design of the villa and every aspect of its location has been well thought through. The pool was great especially the saltwater which was reall gentle. A good size and depth, and spotlessly clean. The evening sun slowly dropping into the outside seating area made for a great end of the day. All in all Taos was by far the best villa we've stayed in and I'd recommend it 100%. The owners were also really helpful and communicative. Thank you for providing such a wonderful property :)
Thank you Andrew,
The pleasure of reading how much you enjoyed your stay, stimulates the whole team to do it better the next season. Each guests has different feelings about his or her holidays but they never are indifferent staying at Taos. And those who came back, always find new things we try to change every year.
You made my day Andrew!
What a wonderful location to spend your holiday!
We loved every single aspect of this house to spend our vacation.
The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. All with a private bathroom attached.
The interior of the entire villa is very well chosen and give the right vibe and luxurious feeling.
It was super clean and very useful that all bed linen and towels are provided. There is even a washing machine if you would have some laundry to do.
Who needs to go to the beach if you have such a perfect pool with tropical surroundings? Breakfast and dinner at the terrace made our days.
We spent this week with our 2 small children and them also had the time of their lives.
At just a short 10 minutes drive there is the lovely local La Cala de Mijas with some shops and nice restaurants and beach bars.
Also a tip is to visit Mijas Pueblo, up in the mountains to have a romantic walk and dinner!
We would definitely recommend this villa to others and hope to come back soon.
Thanks Flo and Pili for the nice welcome and service you gave us. We highly appreciated it. Claudia, Domien, Jim and Lou
Thank you Claudia for your comments. Like always it is so rewarding to see that our efforts are greated by our hosts. Together with Pili (without whom nothing would be possible), it makes us stronger (trying) to go for excellency in receiving people.
I sure hope you'll be back soon with your family so that you can appreciate the improvementsTaos villa will undergo to give an unforgettable moment of holiday . Thank you.
Twee weken geleden hebben wij met het hele gezin genoten van deze villa. Alles was volledig in orde tot in de details en aan alles werd gedacht.
De villa beschikt over talloze faciliteiten zoals een prachtig zwembad, panoramisch dakterras, lift en een ruime ondergrondse garage.
Ook de veiligheid wordt gegarandeerd door o.a. een alarm, buiten camera's en automatische rolluiken. Voor ons was het dus de perfecte vakantiewoning, echt een aanrader!
Happy Herbst in Andalusien
Wir hatten eine Super Woche in der Villa TAOS in Mijas/Andaluciá!
Das Wetter war deutlich besser als gemeldet, und so konnten wir uns nach einem grauen ersten Tag, an sechs sonnenreichen Tagen mit Temperaturen zwischen 21° und 25° im Oktober in und um die Villa mit unseren Familien vergnügen.
Die vor Ort Betreuung durch Pili uns Ihre sehr nette Tochter ist umfassend gut! Alle Fragen und Wünsche werden beantwortet und erfüllt!
Wir konnten sogar am Dienstag Abend auf der Terrasse eine fantastische Paella genießen, welche von Pili selbst zubereitet wurde!
Die Ausstattung der Villa lässt kaum Anforderungen offen;
lediglich das lange Warten bis in den Duschen das Wasser warm genug ist, so wie die Tatsache das "keine" deutschsprachigen TV-Programme empfangen werden können, sind kleine Wermutstropfen die eine 5-Sterne Bewertung knapp verhindern.
Alles in Allem ein tolles Haus, welches das ERSTE ist, das wir ein zweites mal buchen würden!!!
Thank you for your constructive comments. Sorry to be late for my response but there is a practical reason for that: the time necessary to get warm water in the lower level of the villa WAS due: first, to the solar panel installation and second, to more than hundred meters of water tubes necessary to reach the bathroom. The second reason has just been largely improved with a powerful return pump installation. So now you get warm water much quicker (you cannot avoid the solar panel system, though). For your second observation, the Smart TVs have the possibility to translate all films, series and documentaries in original idiom (in which it has been produced). In another hand, you noticed that you could use both old VHS viewer and new DVD player with several cassettes and discs in different languages. Centralised music is provided too by a Hi-Fi System, not forgetting an old runner Hi-Fi component for vinyl records, CDs and cassettes (with dozens of records, CDs and cassettes at your disposal). I hoped that would be enough here to prevent people from being too much inside instead of taking advantage of Andalusian climate. But anyway, I am so happy you promised to come back (you'll note the improvements!). Thank you again for your 5 stars.
Holiday perfection for a fussy family!
Such a lovely villa!!
We had a fabulous 2 weeks here and it really is so thoughtfully appointed. It is like home from home with so much attention to detail.
There was not a single thing that had to be 'tolerated' because it didn't work properly or was damaged. Great care is obviously taken to ensure any issues are immediately dealt with so everything remains perfect and pristine.
The quality of everything in the house was very high.
It is wonderfully peaceful at the villa, yet only 5 mins drive to get to the big shopping mall down the road and then to the main road that takes you up and down the coast.
Pili is truly wonderful at her job and nothing was too much trouble for her.
Flo, the owner quite obviously truly cares that her guests have a wonderful holiday and was genuinely interested and concerned to make sure everything was perfect.
The villa was immaculate on arrival, nice and cool too, we were greeted by Pili and Rebecca and presented with the most fabulous fruit basket and chilled bottles of water.
We can't recommend this villa enough.
Best villa we have ever stayed in (and we've tried many!!!)
Many thanks to Flo, Pili and everyone else who made our stay so wonderful.
The Byrom family.
Our stay at Villa Taos was beyond our expectations. The beautifully designed villa was a home from home and we could not have wished for a warmer welcome upon our arrival. Flo provides an extremely well organised holiday home with all the comforts you would expect from a villa worthy of the five stars. Immaculately cared for with a fantastic location, we would definitely return here. With ten of us in the villa, we had enough space to relax either in a quiet corner or to sit together on the fabulous outdoor space or inside in the open plan living area. There was always help at hand if we needed some advice or help and we are very grateful to Pili who was such a star! Thank you for sharing such a lovely property! We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Taos!
The Mijas and Fuengirola areas have a unique micro-climate in Europe. The Costa del Sol is famous for its average temperatures ranging from 56° C to 100° C, with an average annual temperature around 66° C. The region contains all the ingredients for a good stay: You will find a great variety of bars: from the typical Spanish tapas bars close to British pubs, beach bars or 'chiringitos' where you will taste seafood (but not only) cooked according to ancient recipes, typical dishes of Andalusia. On the other hand, not matching the quality and quantity of traditional ethnic restaurants, one can eat 24h / 24h. Due to the high concentration of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the Costa del Sol is the perfect place to watch the sunrise after spending the night in the beach fashion discos, with DeeJay entertainment. Or, if you prefer, you can simply watch the sunset, confortably installed on the panoramic terrace. Nearby, there are essential towns to visit.
Puerto Banus: The famous marina, international jet set with its yachts, sports cars, luxury shops, restaurants on the harbor, discos, its excesses, etc ... Ronda: charming small mountain town with one of the oldest bullring in Spain (1572) and the Tajo river topped by a bridge that delivers a breathtaking view. Gibraltar: A little piece of England, with still some very special prices you won't find anywhere else (alcohol, gasoline, electronics, its marriages, etc ...). Marbella: the seafront promenade, the botanical garden and casco antiguo (old town center) with its famous Plaza de los Naranjos and typical restaurants.
Nerja: a seaside village where is one of the most famous caves in Spain.
Mijas Pueblo: mountainside location, this picturesque 'white' village (burro / taxi donkey, bullfight arena, the church and the miniature museum), takes you along the promenade to the breathtaking panorama of the mediterranean coast.
Benalmadena: small marina where houses, shops, restaurants and bars are 'waterfront'.
The village of Benahavis: 5' from San Pedro de Alcantara is internationally known for its outstanding cuisine that will seduce you by the variety and quality of restaurants.
Some practical informations about the region: At your arrival, you will be given maps and guides for the various recreational activities in the Costa del Sol, as well as complete and updated internet links for various activities, events and whatever can be done in Andalusia.
In the interior, the famous cities: Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, etc., each filled with history. You'll love these world famous sites while (re) discovering Spanish customs and gastronomy. Shopping: You also can find a variety of items and souvenirs, not only Andalusian crafts but high-quality international products of the best brands around the world. The recreational activities are so numerous that it is impossible not to forget some of them, but let's try anyway: walking, eco tours of all levels, mountain biking, mountain adventures (Sierra Nevada is a 80 minutes drive from the seashore), boat trips: sailing, motor, cruises, sea fishing, watching tours (whales, dolphins, when they show up), diving, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, have fun in various huge water parks (Aqualand, Mijas Costa, Aquavelis), amusement parks (Tivoli, Camelot, etc ...) for shows and family fun. Karting track, horseriding to discover the surroundings, sports facilities for fitness, paddle tennis, spas, massages, etc ... Other attractions sites: animal parks (Selwo, Crocodile Park, Senda, Sea Life, Selwo Marina, Fuengirola Zoo, Wolf Park, Butterfly Park, etc ...), casinos (Torrequebrada, Marbella). Typical local markets for all kinds of food, fruits and vegetables, crafts and other miscellaneous products. Monday: Marbella - Tuesday: Fuengirola - Mercoledì Benalmadena - Thursday: San Pedro de Alcántara - Friday: La Cala de Mijas and Las Chapas - Saturday: Mijas Costa and Puerto Banus.
The Costa del Sol beaches are famous for their cleanliness, pride of local authorities. Everywhere you will find wardrobe rooms, showers, children's swings, pedal boats and a monitoring service set up by the Red Cross in high season, as well as weight training machines located in various the streets of Fuengirola. In summer you can attend local festivals (festival of the countries, beer festival) fiestas de los Santos, free concerts, tapas route in bars, Ferias (August: the biggest in Malaga), street performances and free events. Oh , I forgot! the world competion events at the near hippodrome at 5 minutes from the villa...
