Villa Mae is the perfect example of how you can transform a classic villa into a luxurious modern holiday home. To me, it felt like having one foot in Andalucia and the other in LA, the cool and elegant interiors spill out to the sea view terraces and aromatic Mediterranean gardens.
In my opinion, Villa Mae is the ultimate Marbella villa option if you want to spend quality time with family, not too far from the action and yet far enough to feel like a welcome retreat.
Situated in the upmarket suburb of El Rosario, Villa Mae offers the perfect location if you are looking for a holiday retreat with easy access to Marbella and beaches, but not be plumb in the centre of the action.
The villa is located at the top end of El Rosario, a 3 minute drive down to cafes, supermarket, restaurants and a tennis club with gym. A further 3 minute drive takes you down to the sand beaches of East Marbella and three exclusive beach clubs.
At less than an hour from cultural capital Malaga and just 35 minutes transfer time from the airport, Villa Mae is centrally located from which to enjoy the cultural delights of the Costa del Sol.
For eating out there are several options within 2km in the hub of El Rosario, or 10 minutes further east, there is the upbeat area of Elviria and the little port of Cabopino.
Playa del Alicate and the surrounding beaches are home to a great selection of family run “chiringuitos” serving up the fresh catch of the day, and chic beach bars like Oyana Beach, Nosso Summer Club and Bono Beach which offer gourmet cuisine and sun loungers to the beat of live music and DJs.
Of course there’s plenty of choice in Marbella centre (15 minutes) where you’ll find something for all tastes, from world-class cuisine to characterful tapas bars, from local produce to designer labels, and from beach walks to breathtaking mountain hikes.
Situated 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 culture and charm. 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.
There’s plenty to do for families in Marbella and great day-trips too. You can easily visit charming white villages like Mijas and Benahavis for a really Spanish feel, or maybe lunch in the original fishing village of La Cala?
Further afield there’s the whole of Andalucian to explore where day trips or nights away are easily added into your itinerary.
