Classical yet stylish interiors to make you feel right home
A graciously rustic property with splashes of colour exuding warmth and space.
A huge antique Ronda door gives a hint at what lays inside, revealing a spacious and comfortable living area with an over-sized fireplace, full of Spanish charm.
Beyond that lays a formal dining room, the main kitchen, a small bodega, and eventually you come to the beating heart of the house; A cool central patio that embraces Moorish traditions, bordered by archways, hand painted decorative ceramics, and finished in varying hues of terracotta reds, oranges, and rich blues inspired by the Mediterranean Sea.
Off the courtyard you will find three of the 9 bedrooms; a large master bedroom with four poster bed and private terrace, a guest twin room, and the courtyard room which also has space for an extra child.
Also by the courtyard you will find the kitchen, a lovely place full of rustic simplicity with a skylight, open fireplace and small bodega. Its welcoming vibe encourages family and friends to converge around the central island for a glass of something while dinner is cooking. Linked to the kitchen is an intimate dining room that seats up to eight persons.
There is a gymnasium which can be found at the driveway level, and is fully equipped for a variety of fitness needs.
4 further bedrooms can be found in the ‘Tower Wing’ – a tower of bedrooms stacked over two levels with a cosy reading attic at the top level that can be laid with one or two single beds to form bedroom number 10.
And finally, the two remaining bedrooms are located in the modern private apartment situated in the lower section of the estate. It comes complete with two bedrooms, a modern kitchen, living area and bathroom. The apartment also makes the ideal space for Brides to get ready for their big day, leading directly out to the wedding ceremony area looking towards the sea.
Flowering gardens are an oasis in the lush Madronal foliage
Nestled on a wooded hillside with a variety of trees soaking up the salty air, the gardens are well tended and peaceful.
The outdoor space at this villa is where families and friends will spend their most memorable hours in the Spanish Sunshine.
The upper terrace enjoys sublime views across the Madronal Estate, and offers a lounge and bar with a barbecue pit, perfect spaces for lingering over meals or drinks on sun-soaked days and cool nights.
Just below the main house a large and very private pool, and a separate hot tub with lighting and sound system, invite guests to indulge in complete relaxation at any time of day.
The pool terrace flows into a casual seating area, with a barbecue and an outdoor kitchen complete with cooking essentials for al-fresco dining.
Another level down from the pool leads to the apartment, and a garden circle riotous with flowers, and surrounded by the woodland estate of El Madronal.
This beautiful private residence easily accommodates up to 18/20 guests with children, offering the most beautiful setting for a relaxing escape in southern Spain.
El Madronal provides a romantic backdrop to your Spanish wedding, where you can make your vows while gazing out towards the Mediterranean.

Why we love it
Thank you, we had A wonderful time at Hacienda Madronal. The house was big enough for all of us. Very quiet environment with beautiful views and lots of green.
We were helped by the housekeepers, very friendly people.
We enjoyed our holiday fully, Thank you!
Hi Lindsay, let me say that my clients have returned super happy about their experience, not only with the villa, but particularly with your attention and concern. Absolutely first class all around, and it came through in all the arrangements
I (and I think I can speak for everyone) had a thoroughly awesome time, in fact I’d go as far to say one of the best weekends I’ve ever had. I will be recommending your properties and services and hope to come back myself some time in the future. So thank you so much.
Our wedding was incredible! I was over the moon with how well things came together. The decorations were amazing, the place looked straight out of a magazine!
The villa itself , even though in some parts a bit rough around the edges, was perfect! The imperfections just added to the charm. It was especially great to have all these different spaces to have the different parts of the wedding. People didn’t have to move (ie get into a car) from the ceremony space to the cocktail to the dinner, but yet they still got very different experiences, I really liked that! The little viewing garden is really just perfect for a ceremony! And the views! The views from the upstairs lounge area and from the pool were exquisite.
The villa really is huge and you can easily spend 3 nights in different locations and never feel like you are stuck in the same place. The rooms were absolutely gorgeous, our master bedroom was fabulous! The pool was clean and huge! The jacuzzi was perfect!
Please give Fay a big big thank you for referring us to Julia for the catering. She carried the wedding! Everything was absolutely perfect from the BBQ to the dinner (the best filet pur I have ever had!!!!) to the Paella (which they made from scratch on the spot!). We got so many compliments on the food. Only positive feedback. And Julia is just great as a person. She’s so hands on, a great problem solver and very service oriented. She does exactly what you ask and then some! I can really really really recommend her and her husband!
I would recommend this villa as the perfect wedding venue (it really has everything! the garden for ceremony, the courtyard for cocktails, the pool for dinner, the upstairs lounge area for a wedding rehearsal, etc)
I can definitely recommend Lucy as well if you have people booking the place before picking a wedding planner! She knows the place now very well and she can really do magic things with it in terms of decorations!
Thank you for everything. We had the most amazing time and wedding at Hacienda Madronal and everyone was a great help!
When combined with its sister property Hacienda de Madronal 2 just 1km away, the estate can provide accommodation for 32 guests, offering the perfect backdrop for small and intimate destination weddings.
When used as a wedding villa, the private apartment offers a relaxing sanctuary for the Bride-to-be to prepare herself for making an entrance, and the oval-shaped garden facing the valley and down to the Med is the ideal place for the most romantic of celebrations to take place. The wedding reception can then take place around the pool with welcome cocktails on the top terrace, and there is space to invite up to 100 of your family and friends, see the gallery to get a taste of the Spanish vibe for your big day!
Large families with older children also love to share this villa, so it also features prominently in our Family Villas Collection, while toddlers would need a little more supervision due to the steps around the property. Older family members should also be aware that there are steps to reach the upper terraces and several bedrooms.
If you’re hoping to keep on top of a busy email inbox then maybe this villa’s not for you since the Wifi can be hit and miss during high season, but if, on the other hand you are seeking Pure Escapism, then come on in and enjoy the space that this magnificent countryside villa offers! The setting makes Hacienda el Madronal the perfect space to unwind, whether looking to organise a private health retreat or indulge in the private boutique hotel style service.
