Villa the Jo is located in the eastern part of the city of Malaga, or 'Malaga Este' in a neighborhood called Pedregalejo.
The villa is just 4 km away from the beautiful center of Malaga. Pedregalejo beach is the most lively beach area of Malaga with lots of great bars and restaurants where many Spanish families come to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. This part of Malaga is also called the Hollywood Hills of Malaga. And when you walk around you immediately understand why! Beautiful wide roads lined with palm trees and only low-rise buildings give the area an upscale feel. The beach -with numerous traditional fishing boats- makes the area a true holiday destination!
