About this place

Guest reviews... 'Andrew and his family are so warm and friendly people. The place is easy accessible by car and near to everything you need to have a wonderful stay. I combined a holiday in Coin with working remote as a digital nomad for a period of 1 month. The studio is just renovated, wifi signal and speed is perfect, aircon to keep your head cool 🙂 Enjoyed the swimming pool a lot and the late evening views from the Studio terrace! You will feel at home in this place for sure!' Tim, August 2022

10/10 A special place, a great Spanish villa with a breathtaking view, a fruit garden and pool. A fantastic place, also good for extended stays. Great location, a well-equipped studio. Chris, Germany, Solo Traveller, 28 nights · June 2021 

STUDIO VIEWS APARTMENT – for the solo traveller, enjoys an ensuite bedroom with kitchenette and an elevated outdoor terrace with panoramic views. The private terrace has a large, modern gas barbecue, quality outdoor dining and lounge furniture, granite worktop with sink and washing machine.
Welcome to our sun-drenched, nature-rich private piece of paradise, nestled in a sought-after area of fertile rolling hillsides between the traditional white-washed towns of Alhaurin el Grande and Coin in beautiful Andalucia, Southern Spain. “Alhaurin”, a name given by the Moors, means “God´s garden”. The area is fertile with a pleasant winter climate, hot summers, blue skies, fresh air & sunshine. You can find an abundance of produce grown and sold locally including at vibrant, ecological, Artisan and Spanish farmer's markets. Our area of the world offers an interesting mix of traditional Spanish people/culture and a large, established, international community. There are communities of people interested in natural living/permaculture and animal welfare. The Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses (ARCH), featured-on-TV, is just a short 10-minute walk away.

You can enjoy excellent main-road-links, including a 25-minute, 10-mile, drive to the stunning, typically Andalucian, historic, whitewashed mountain village of Mijas Pueblo, with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean coast far below. Plus you are within a 35 minutes drive to the golden beaches and popular resorts of the Costa-del-Sol at Marbella, Fuengirola, Mijas Costa, and Malaga. Historic Malaga City with its many visitor attractions, & Malaga International Airport are also just a 35 minutes drive away. The world-renown El Caminito del Rey with its spectacular rope walkways is 45 minutes away (prior booking essential) and day trips are possible including to Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, Gibraltar, Tarifa (the southernmost point of continental Europe), & Morocco. 

Your Hosts: Hazel and Andrew are award-winning 5 star-rated (Trip Advisor, AirBnB, VRBO) property owners/managers with over 20 years of experience, many happy guests and repeat bookings. 

A review from our popular holiday apartment Fern House, Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, UK...
‘Absolutely charming accommodation in the centre of the village with the bonus of its own parking space. Clean and well presented it is one of the best Airbnb we have stayed in, giving us a nice relaxing long weekend away.’ Philip, October 2021


We love to provide you with peaceful, high-quality, home-from-home accommodation where you can relax and enjoy all that the area has to offer. While staying at Fruitful Hills you can enjoy access to our 13,000m2 estate with diverse plant-life including over 200 trees, lovely views, our large outdoor salt-water swimming pool with a spacious elevated terrace area furnished with modern sun loungers, large parasols, a fire-pit and fast, efficient ORBI 6 Mesh wifi access. 

We are entrepreneurs who love nature, healthy natural living, and all things good, true, wise and beautiful.


Our story: following intuition (including 4 years ago, Hazel discerning an impending sense of doom, repeatedly inwardly-hearing, "It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine!” and, “Marbella”) we unexpectedly released many of our belongings, left the UK and bought budget airline one-way tickets to Southern Spain. After searching widely (and much prayer!) we eventually purchased this property and moved in one week before the first lock-down was announced.  The property was a bit of a fixer-upper (needed A LOT of work!). We actually celebrated when we found something functional and working and rejoiced when we said goodbye to the 1970’s salmon pink bathroom! 
We have been happily busy sorting things out on the property since (and have met some wonderfully knowledgeable and helpful people along the way).  We are on a learning curve for sure, fortunately, many things have worked out, some not so. 
We couldn’t think of a place we would prefer to be and each day we feel blessed and amazed to be stewarding this amazing country property and to be living in such a beautiful, inspiring place. We really did not intend to move to Spain - we didn’t speak the language and had only been on holiday a few times many years prior. Aware of the craziness in the world of the past few years, and the journey we have been on as a family, we wonder at how God guided us here.
 We have learned and grown much.

Sharing and Caring: We know the challenges of travelling and relocating to a new area or country. Former chartered accountant, project manager, and Church of England Vicar, Andrew particularly loves to chat about properties, gardening and listen to people's stories and experiences. He loves showing people around the estate and for those who are looking to relocate, help and guide them along their way including bringing awareness to many the pitfalls and challenges - especially related to renting or purchasing a country property in Spain. 
We are aware of both extrovert and introvert personality types and are equally happy to chat or leave you alone to do your own thing. We respect your privacy. There is plenty of space for all. 
We offer two types of accommodation on our property, both of which are newly renovated and well equipped. You can learn more about them in our listings. We hope to welcome you soon.
