BFB's Overview

Nestled amongst 180 acres of olive and almond trees, with beautiful views down the valley to the Mediterranean and even Africa beyond, Padre Aviles is a haven for parents and young children. Despite the brilliantly convenient location, just 30 minutes from Malaga airport (reached from most UK regional airports) and 10mins from the nearest beach, this traditionally restored former 17th century convent is wonderfully tranquil and relaxing. It's also extremely welcoming for little ones, thanks mainly due to the fact its owners, expats Claire and David, have a gaggle of youngsters themselves, and provide a host of play great to keep them entertained but with minimal impact on the natural beauty and relaxing atmosphere of the setting.


The traditional Andalucian stablesand covent have recently been converted into five luxurious 2 & 3-bedroom self catering apartments. Their south-facing position, high ceilings and white-washed walls give them a lovely fresh bright feel, whilst touches like hand crafted wooden beds; pretty tiles and cosy wood burning stoves give them traditional elegance. Luxury touches come in the form of granite topped kitchens, mod cons like kettles (so often overlooked in Spain/France), dishwashers, washing machines and microwaves, which can make life a lot easier with little ones in tow. There are also DVD players (bring kids favourites) and stereos. All apartments have lovely south facing terraces (fenced) with good quality teak furnishings and BBQs. Their beautiful views over the pool, valley and sea make them a wonderful spot to enjoy dinner and drinks once the little ones are in bed.


The 115 square metre Bourgainvillea Suite is adjacent to the old convent and comprises of a large double bedroom with views over the mountains and an ensuite bathroom, plus a large twin room which can sleep up to three, which also boasts an ensuite bathroom. The large open plan lounge, kitchen and dinning area, have French doors leading onto a private terrace overlooking the swimming pool with Teak garden furniture, a BBQ. and views over the sea. The suite has a wood burning stove which adds to the romance and makes for cosy nights (there are heaters too), a DVD player and a stereo. The neutral toned decor gives a lovely sense of peace and tranquillity.

Please note: one cot and one highchair are now offered free of charge.

Location Information

Padre Aviles is only 30 mins from Malaga airport, 20mins from Malaga centre with the Picasso Museum, the Alcazaba and fabulous shopping. The beach and it beachfront restaurants are just 10mins away, and there are 3 golf courses within 15mins. The famously picturesque white-washed village of Frigiliana is within 20 minutes and major towns such as Granada(1hr), Ronda(1hr), Seville(2hr) and Cordoba(2hr) are all within easy access.The very spanish white washed village of Olias is 1.5 km up the road and has a village shop where you can buy all the basics and fresh bread. Another 6 km north will take you the the "Montes de Malaga", Malaga's National park.

Owners Claire and David speak fluent French and Spanish, as well as English and are a great resource not just for fun things to do with kids in the area, but also to help if problems like car breakdown or medical emergencies occur.

  • We had a great stay at Padre Aviles. Our two girls, who were just turning 5 and 3, really enjoyed the pool, the cats and dogs and all the toys in the play area. The cats and dogs are very well behaved and were a great hit. It is a very peaceful place with great hosts. It is a short drive from the coast up a windy but safe road. We were lucky to have friendly neighbours staying at the same time with 2 boys the same age as our daughters.Review dated 14/06/2015

  • We had a wonderful week and Claire and David and their daughters made us feel very welcome. Our 2 year old could not have been happier swimming and playing with a very tolerant cat. We would highly recommend a stay at Padre Avilles and hope to visit again soon.Review dated 16/08/2012

  • The accomodation was great - and Claire was fab - providing lots of kit for our tiny baby. Only downside was that we didn't realise from the description that you had to drive to get anywhere... which wasn't ideal with a 15 week old baby who still needs a lot of walks in the pram.Review dated 03/11/2009

  • We received a very warm and friendly welcome to this super little development. The former stable (I think) building has been converted to an extremely high standard with first class furnishings and equipment. My family (kids - 14, 11 and 8) and I would love to go back one day.

  • We had the most wonderful stay with our 3 children at Padre Aviles over New Year. Claire and David were incredibly welcoming, the apartments were beautifully kitted out with everything you need with 3 young kids (ours are 5y, 3y and 5 months) and the views from the balcony down the valley were breath-taking. Highlight: local walks to nearby v unspoilt village, Olias. Our only sadness was that we were staying during the winter and so didn't get to use the amazing pool so we're already planning our next trip..... THOROUGHLY recommend a stay here!Review dated 03/11/2009

  • We had a fabulous time! Can't wait to go back.Review dated 03/11/2009

  • We had a fantastic time on our holiday, Clare and David were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartments had everthing you could possibly need for a family friendly holiday as well as being spotless. My only moan was that the terraces weren't fenced off, which would have been a huge help with a very active toddler.Review dated 03/11/2009

  • We had a really amazing holiday. Padre Aviles is just gorgeous and the owners are just so very friendly and welcoming, they really made the whole experience superb. The facilities were great and the location idyllic. It was very Spanish which was great. Our 1 year old and 4 year old both loved it and we were actually able to relax! We will definitely be returning at some point in the future!Review dated 03/11/2009

  • Claire the owner could not be more helpful. My daughter needed the doctor while we were on holiday and she made the appointment and went with us making the whole situation very easy!Review dated 03/11/2009

  • Outstanding - and we had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. I have to say everything was first class - the apartments were all furnished to a very high standard, extremely well laid out, excellent facilities - and the location is breathtaking. Secondly - the swimming pool and tennis courts were perfect and the only way to get our kids out of the pool or tennis courts was to take them out on a day trip or put them to bedReview dated 03/11/2009
