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 stables and 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 90 square metre El Olivio apartment is one of the smallest at Padre Aviles but is it perfect for a family of three or four. It has a lovely double bedroom with space for a cot, and a cosy twin bedroom, both of which share a beautifully tiled bathroom with bath tub and shower over. There's a large open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, have French doors leading onto a private balcony (safely enclosed) overlooking the swimming pool with Teak garden furniture, a BBQ. The apartment has two, 2-seater sofas and 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 and high ceilings gives a lovely sense of space, peace and tranquillity.

Please note a cot and one highchair are now provided 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.
