The owners have done a magnificent job in transforming this traditional family home into a chic and stylish space, where I’m sure many happy families are going to make memories that last! One of our favourite aspects of this property is that you really don’t need a car if you just want a lazy week by the beach or pool, since its just a short stroll from a large supermarket and shops, and some restaurants too, while a bigger selection can be enjoyed less than 5 minutes away in a taxi

Spend your days relaxing, splashing, barbecuing and luxuriating in your own slice of Spanish paradise
Built for pleasure, for togetherness, and for pure enjoyment, Villa Blanco is a welcoming homage to the leisure pursuits of southern Spain: of tranquil mornings and lazy afternoons by the pool, of exhilarating water-sports and sun-bathing beneath breezy palms.
It’s not often that affordable luxury comes in such a sleek package: After its full interior renovation in 2016, Villa Blanco now proudly shows off its light-filled interiors and fine finishes, Northern European accents and contemporary detailing.
Villa Blanco is a holiday home built for modern families and contemporary tastes. For luxury travellers who refuse to compromise.
A perfect fit for small families, Villa Blanco offers ample privacy for two separate groups, with two bedrooms down and two bedrooms up. Gleaming white accents, cream furnishings, Corian surfaces and modern floors pull together the home’s open, flowing spaces, creating a coherent design that invites love, laughter and time together.
Cool off in the outdoor pool or take an easy stroll to the beach
Out of doors, sunbeams filter through a towering palm that shades the private pool and lush garden – sized perfectly for families with toddling youngsters. You’ll want to spend your entire day relaxing, splashing, barbecuing and luxuriating in your own slice of Spanish paradise.
At Villa Blanco, you won’t waste your time driving: A handful of restaurants are just steps from your front door, and a modern new supermarket sits just around the corner. Better yet, a gentle 20-minute walk down the road brings you to Estepona Beach, home to a small aquapark and an array of water-sports: scuba and sea kayaks, snorkelling and pedaloes, among other diversions.

All straight lines and Spanish flair, Villa Blanco is a modern villa as fresh as the Mediterranean breeze. Inside, bright and open living spaces unfold over glossy white accents, grey marble, large windows, and blonde flooring – a crisp and clean Swedish ambiance to complement the villa’s light and airy southern Spanish vibe.
Sunlight streams into the living room, pouring through full-width glass doors and filtering past the luxurious pearl-grey drapes. The view frames the sparkling pool, lush gardens and inviting terrace, pulling the outdoors in – in to the welcoming living room, complete with a new and modern real-flame fireplace, to add to the cosy ambiance as well as the villa’s contemporary feel.
Settle in for great conversation or movie night, on the invitingly plush cream sofa and its even more tempting accompaniment, a butter-soft cream leather, reclining three-seater sofa. The 50-inch Smart TV, equipped with Apple TV and Netflix, are queued for family fun.
Comfortable under foot, the villa’s grey marble flooring and modern oak-effect ceramic tiles unite the white-and-cream colour palette, creating open spaces that flow from living room into the dining area, kitchen, and other spaces.
The new and modern kitchen is a delight for cooks and high-design aficionados alike. Finished with custom white Corian worktops – lovely to the touch – and an integrated sink, smooth-close doors, and superior appliances, including an American side-by-side, induction hob, and Siemens oven, the kitchen is a study in top workmanship and contemporary design.
The kitchen opens onto the indoor dining space, which offers a large glass-topped table and plush, gold-studded upholstered seating for eight. (Families, rest easy: a high chair is available for the youngest guests!) A gorgeous crystal light fitting adds a touch of glamour, while large windows gaze out to the garden, inviting the sunbeams to stream in.
Of course, if the sun calls to you, there’s no better place to dine than outdoors, by the pool. Cook up a feast at the BBQ table by Jamie Oliver, or grab some refreshment from the full-sized fridge on the side terrace. An outdoor dining set accommodates eight, with additional seating for overflow, if needed.
Three walls of large, full-width glass beg you to fling open the doors and step outside, to revel and relax in the warmth and beauty of the Spanish sun. A green garden, resplendent with palm fronds and exotic plantings, are the perfect backdrop for the refreshing and private pool – at 8×4 metres (26×20 feet), it’s large enough to swim laps.
Al-fresco seating, including sun loungers and plush chairs, frame the pool. Drink in the sun, go for a swim, or crack open that beach read you’ve been waiting to devour.
Of course, if you desire a change of scenery, you’re just a short walk (900 metres, or about half a mile) to shopping, restaurants and Estepona Beach, with its offering of a waterpark and water sports. Golf, spa services, and other holiday treats are also easily accessible from Villa Blanco.

Why we love it
Just got back from our 2nd year with The Luxury Villa Collection and another superb stunning Villa (Villa Blanco)
Again from initial enquiry to all booked and ready to go, the team at the LVC make it all so easy with fast efficient communication. From booking a masseuse on our first full day to the private dining catered for at your Villa (highly recommended) Fay made it all so easy.
Look forward to seeing you all again next year. All the best and thanks again for a piece of mind chill in the sunshine!
Beautiful house and lovely garden! If we could wish for anything at all it would be closer to a bigger town. But there was everything we needed in a short walk. The best holiday and nicest house we have ever rented!
Excellent location, very generously stocked villa with a hamper, Nespresso coffee pods and a web-linked Sonos music system. In 2-3,min walk you have an Irish Pub great for late night drinks on our drive back home . Then you have this amazing Sushi – Thai and Pizza place – great for in-restaurant dining and also home delivery- excellent quality.
Marbella rocks and be ready to splurge and party in the multiple beach clubs – Nikki and Puro beach were chilled out lazing zones, while family favourite dining spots were old town Marbella and Puerto Banus Marina which is also great for people watching . Late night clubbing is at the Marina in Marbella and Puerto Banus – most well dressed crowd ever ! San Tropez move over !
Villa is well located near the A-7 to allow you to explore all nice villages and suburbs and beach side board walks nearby. What wasn’t nice? The beaches themselves – some grey with coarse sand, been to better beaches in Mallorca and Ibiza and Alicante. In July Temperatures are up but cool breeze in shade and nights are lovely but we would probably return in May or June.
Best Experience? Morning massage pool side in the shaded veranda with cool breeze . Concierge Service is a big help . All in all fab vacation relaxation place – up market!!
Villa Blanco is perfect for a small family travelling with children, friends or grandparents – there’s room for 2 small families to share if you like.
For the children there’s a lovely twin bedroom next to the master bedroom, fitted with child-safe doors and windows. There’s space too in the master bedroom for an extra 2 small children on sofa bed or a cot.
Downstairs you also have one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, so another family can share. Or if you are bringing the Grandparents along they may appreciate the absence of steps and stairs on the ground floor.
This villa is very convenient for families who like to pop out for a walk without driving everywhere, its within walking distance to restaurants, supermarket, the beach and a hotel-based waterpark where you can buy a pass to spend the whole day!
Enjoy the local area
Enjoy the family friendly vibe of west Marbella
Leafy and relaxed Atalaya is on the border of Marbella and Estepona, a well established suburb that extends down to the beach, just a few minutes east of the glamorous resort of Puerto Banus or family fun in San Pedro de Alcantara.
Villa Blanco sits in Atalaya Isdabe, a relaxed and friendly area extending down to the sea. This is an upmarket leafy residential suburb just on the border with Marbella, though you are closest to the chic beachside town of San Pedro with its newly developed family friendly boulevard and excellent restaurants.
The surrounding lanes are home to multi-million dollar mansions, family friendly hotels and chic apartments, so you are in very good company and its super easy to pop out for a pint of milk with a large supermarket just around the corner.
Located only a 10 minute drive from Puerto Banus and San Pedro, this welcoming area offers an excellent standard of villa accommodation just a short drive from the buzz of the main resorts of the Costa del Sol.
If you fancy a walk, the nearest cafe and restaurants are just around the corner, a mere 3-4 minute stoll, while a little farther over the footbridge you reach Diana Park commercial centre with a couple of shops, cafes, restaurants and hairdresser.
The nearest beach is just 900m away so takes about 15-20 minutes straight down the road outside the villa. Once there you can find a range of watersports from Scuba and Snorkelling to Jet-ski and Hobbycat sailing. At the beach hotel there’s even a mini waterpark that outside guests are welcome to use by purchasing a day pass, it really is family beach heaven!
If you fancy exploring a little further, then head along the main road away from Marbella and San Pedro where you will soon reach the pretty resort of Estepona in about 15 minutes. Alternatively try heading inland to Benahavis Pueblo, a pretty white village known for its cluster of restaurants and chef training schools, definitely worth exploring for an evening meal out.
This location offers easy access to facilities, in a quiet residential area where you are never too far from the action and excellent dining options of the Marbella coastline.
Situated in on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Marbella is a resort known widely for it’s glitz and glamour, but for those to choose to explore the area you will find plenty of Spanish charm, culture and character . The resort is renowned for its sunny climate that puts the ‘Sol’ in Costa del Sol, and here we have mile upon mile of beaches, white villages, bustling shops and breath taking scenery, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and groups of friends alike.
In Marbella you will find something for all tastes, from world-class cuisine to characterful tapas bars, from local produce to designer labels in neighbouring Puerto Banus, just 10 minutes drive from your villa.
