For Spanish Culture, explore the cities of Andalucia with a personal guide from our expert partners, Toma & Coe. Enjoy a selection of day tours or bespoke itineraries all with a door to door service in air-conditioned vehicles. A perfect choice for a first-time stay in Marbella is the escorted wine and tapas tour of Marbella Old Town, where you can get to know the secret corners of this Spanish centre.
A TASTE OF SPAIN
A complete villa pre-stocking service is also free of charge at this property, and it would be our pleasure to recommend a selection of Spanish wines for you to enjoy during your stay (food and wine cost settled locally). The house staff will then take care of your initial grocery shopping before you arrive so you can get straight on with the job of relaxing.
Your housekeeper will be on hand during your stay. She will be along to prepare your breakfast and one other meal each day, with the cost of food settled locally. We can also offer a more formal Villa Chef service for special occasions, so if you would like to know more about our gourmet menu, tasting menus, BBQs, poolside paellas or wine-pairing with your meal then please ask us for rates.
To help you get the very best from your stay at this villa, our Concierge is happy to assist with transfers, car hire, chauffeurs or shuttles.
Located on the ground floor and open to the dining room, the focal point of the main living area is the oversized, white fluffy sofas and armchairs that surround a winter-ready open fireplace, framed in antique hand-painted tiles. Colourful details include Andaluz-blue lamps, powder-blue woven fabrics from the Balearic Islands, and reclaimed tables painted in contrasting colours.
A second al-fresco living space can be enjoyed on the roof terrace; an open-air lounge perfect for relaxation, an afternoon read, or a sundowner. You can also stretch out on blue-and-white cushions under the vines, and overlooking the pool.
The cortijo-style indoor dining room seats 10 at a large table with rustic, antique sisal chairs. The open-plan dining room leads into the main living room, and then onto the front terrace and lawn. There’s additional seating for 5 in the cottage kitchen, perfect for children’s mealtimes with nanny, while adults entertain in the main dining area.
Outside, shaded by a pergola, there’s al fresco dining for 10. A gas barbecue is also available.
The kitchen is rustic cottage-chic, but fully equipped with a 6-ring induction hob and farmhouse range cooker. Hand-painted antique tiles add to the charm and style of this practical cook’s kitchen.
The villa has extensive terraces, a roof deck, and vine-covered pergolas that welcome shade or sun. The huge expanse of lawn is perfect for cricket or croquet; equipment is included with your rental. The gently flowing river (gated off for safety) is a perfect setting for a rural wedding, or for stretching your legs.
A large, heated pool is located in the rear garden. Framed by tall palms, eucalyptus trees, and lush greenery, the pool measures 12 metres (40 feet) in length and offers beautiful mountain views. Sun-loungers sit on the pool terrace.
Bedroom 1: Spacious ground-floor master with open fireplace, TV, reading corner, and doors out to the poolside terrace. Large en-suite terracotta bathroom with twin sinks, bath, and separate shower cubicle.
Bedroom 2: The ‘Green Bedroom,’ this top-level suite functions as a second master. Patio doors open onto the rooftop terrace and lovely views. En-suite bathroom with terracotta tiling, bathtub and shower attachment.
Bedroom 3: The ‘Red Bedroom,’ named for its handwoven red tapestry, is smaller than Bedroom 2 but also opens to the roof terrace and beautiful views. The en-suite offers terracotta and hand-painted Spanish tiles, bathroom, and separate shower cubicle.
Bedroom 4: The ‘Yellow Bedroom,’ this lovely room has a wall of Andalucian ceramic plates, a reading chair, and a Juliette balcony with views of the lawned garden. It shares its bathroom with the Attic room.
Bedroom 5: The Attic Room offers two twin beds, but note that it is not suitable for small children, as it has a steep staircase. The room feels nautical-themed, with whitewashed floorboards and a yacht-style window. It shares its bathroom with the Yellow Bedroom.
Some bedrooms have space for an additional bed or cot for a child, please ask us for details.
