Beautiful spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious Villa with a lovely big pool, although we were a bit unlucky to have had very windy days we were lucky to have sun in the pool all day until 8 pm. James and Alison are a lovely couple which were there for us if we needed anything and came to clean the pool twice a week and say hello, thanks James and Alison, Aleksandra will miss you. Comfortable beds and big rooms, my daughter loved the jacuzzi, air con in every room and my mother loved her apartment next to us. Supermarkets are plenty around the area and also lots to do. Could have stayed longer, take care 😊👍🏻

Beautiful spacious and stylish villa

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I had a magical,relaxing week in James and Alison's stunning villa! James and Alison were extremely friendly,warm and accommodating before we even arrived. The villa is beautiful! Private, sea views, a wonderful sense of style and beautifully clean. It was perfect for my group-my parents, my 4 siblings and my husband and I with our three kids, aged 4 to 12. The layout was wonderful as the 2 apartments allowed us to have some space to ourselves in such a big group. The pool is a great size with plenty of sun loungers and outdoor seating to soak up the sun in the beautiful garden. There was sun all day on the pool which meant we were able to use it lots throughout the day and the garden had plenty of space for bat and ball etc. The kitchen and outdoor bbq and dining area were perfect for long lunches and relaxing bbq dinners with local supermarkets a short drive away. On James' recommendation we enjoyed plenty of wonderful meals out in the nearby restaurants on the beach. There are lots of interesting trips to take around the area. The beaches nearby were beautiful, we found out favourite with rocks for jumping off into the sea! What a wonderful villa!

Exceptional property, quiet location , relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I was blown away when we pulled up to the villa, beautiful location, quiet and the property itself was gorgeous, lots of room, and the owners went out of their way to help us settle in as much as they could.

I would totally recommend and hope to book again in the future!

Spacious villa near Sotogrande

  • 4 of 5

The villa was spacious and fully met our expectations. Everything within the property was as described and supermarkets and amenities were within easy reach (5 min by car). The villa is within easy reach of Estepona and Gibraltar, as well as nearby Sotogrande and Du Quesa. The only minor negative factor regarding driving was having to drive past the villa on the dual carriage way in order to turn round at the next roundabout to access the small urbanisation. Crossing the main road was also a factor and led to us driving to the nearby beaches rather than walking. The walk along a busy road without a proper pathway was unexpected and not suitable for younger children. However, this didn't detract too much from our holiday (although it could have been made clearer in the description) as we chose to use the car.

On arrival, we were met by the owners who provided us with lots of information and gave us a full tour of the facilities. Everything was explained clearly. The villa and apartment were very clean and well-appointed, although we found the shower in the villa to be noisy. The provision of air con in every room was a delight. Of particular note was the American style fridge/freezer with ice maker and water dispenser, which negated the need to buy bottled water and was a big hit with the children.

The outside area was perfect for our needs, with sun beds, a shaded area and outside eatery with BBQ facilities. It was quite windy whilst we were there, despite it being very hot.

We would highly recommend the villa for a relaxing break. Minor additions we would recommend would be egg cups (we couldn't find any), WiFi in the apartment (particularly for teenagers using it!) and the use of a beach parasol and cool bag. Overall though, a lovely holiday villa with a fabulous pool which is ideal for family holidays. Many thanks.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind review of our property, we are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay. We also appreciate your candid feedback as this helps us to hopefully improve the experience for future guests and the missing items you mentioned are now in place. Regarding walking to the beach I think we did explain the alternative path which goes through a tunnel under the main highway and is very safe but, taking on board your comments, we are now providing a sketch of this route to avoid confusion. We do make a point of saying to all our guests that, if anything that they require is not available or if there are any problems whatsoever, to let us know so that we can rectify them asap. We aim to provide a 5 star service and give everyone the chance to have the relaxing break they came for. We wish you a happy, healthy year and hope to see you back with us again in the future, Kind regards, Alison and James

The region of Andalucia

The southern Mediterranean coast known as the Costa del Sol is one of Europe's top holiday destinations and therefore frequented by many tourists every year. With a wonderful climate for the majority of the year and guaranteed sunshine throughout the summer months, it is the ideal place for a short break away from it all or a more leisurely stay with family or friends.

The coast.offers up many attractions for the visitor and although the sun, sea and beautiful beaches are more than enough for most, Andalucia has a multitude of choices. For foodies, the many beach bar/restaurants (chiringuitos) offer a fabulous relaxed way to eat and normally have kiddies menus, but also within the older winding streets of Estepona, Marbella or Sabinillas for example, culinary delights await in quaint bars or restaurants that offer the very best of Andalucian and international cuisine.For those wanting to explore the beautiful countryside, the inland areas have the celebrated "white villages" within easy access, offering the visitor a glimpse of rural Spain and the opportunity to take a horse back ride or hike the many trails. The Costa del Sol is also famous for it's many golf courses, polo tournaments, water sports of all kinds, whatever takes your fancy is almost always to be found.here Children are also well catered for and also have other possibilities for amusement than the beach such as water parks, zoos, and many promenade playground areas.

What's on the doorstep?

San Diego.

Two minutes by car from the villa you will find yourself looking at a heavenly long, curved stretch of beautiful beach boasting 2 chiringuitos with sun loungers, lovely views to Africa and safe bathing. For a chilled out day -this is the place to come!

Sotogrande.

10 minutes away by car, Sotogrande is more than a playground for the rich and famous. In summertime the stunning harbour is buzzing with activity and the visitor can either enjoy one of the many fabulous restaurants on offer, take lunch on the beach at a chiringuito or play a round of golf or game of tennis. Also famous for it's "A" class golf courses and top notch polo fields. The water is always an attraction here and Sotogrande offers most if not all of the water based sports you could wish for. During the summertime, polo tournaments are happening throughout the week and are a must do for anyone who has never witnessed this sport Not only is it fast and furious, the game itself is very entertaining as are the excellent mojitos or Pimms!

Gibraltar

Less than a half hour's car ride will get you to the frontier of Gibraltar and "rock tours" are available for anyone wanting to know more about this historically strategic Britiish territory with it's famous Barbary apes.

Torreguadiaro

Just a short walk or couple of minutes drive from Sotogrande is the seaside village of Torreguadiaro. Adorned with wonderful tapas bars, restaurants that have the freshest of fish and views across to Africa and Gibraltar, this is a special place! The beach here is fabulous and safe and manned by a beach guard and lookout as are most beaches in summertime, this is a great place to come and chill out.

Puerto de la Duquesa

10 minutes drive,this is a very pretty marina surrounded by broad selection of restaurants, ranging from quite sophisticated a la carte to Spanish tapas and is the ideal place to dine in the evening, or to enjoy long sunny, lazy afternoon lunches. There are lots of bars offering different facilities and atmospheres including some with satellite TV's so you needn't miss the cricket or football ! The emphasis is on the family and most evenings are very busy in the summer months although there aren't any night-club here, there most definitely is a night life !

Sabinillas.

10 minutes away from the villa. In just a few short years this once tiny fishing village has been transformed into a family friendly tourist resort which somehow still holds on to it's roots and remains very Spanish. You can find a huge variety of food here, supermarkets abound, the promenade seems to go on forever and is dotted with play areas for the kids plus the beach is safe and clean. In mid July this small town swells to around 5000 people for the mid summer fiesta of the full moon - get yourself a picnic, sit on the beach and listen to the music whilst taking in the wonderful happy atmosphere as everyone celebrates together this most magical of evenings.

Estepona

20 minutes by car this stunning coastal town has it all! Whether you want to see Europe's biggest orchid house, wander flower lined cobbled traditional streets, sit in the shade of an orange tree in a small square and sip a drink or lounge on a blue flag beach and enjoy the sun - this town is a place to see!

Finally, Marbella and Puerto Banus

30 minuites will get you to one of the most sophisticated marinas in Europe ,Puerto Banus, the place where the rich and famous like to shop and play

In this house you can be close together but not on top of each other.Views of the sea and surrounding countryside are all around and specially designed seating areas allow for quiet moments to savor the peace and tranquility.The garden is wrap around and full of Mediterranean color and yet offers enough space to kick a football around or for kids to play hide and seek.The pool has safe steps leading into it and can be seen from the main house allowing for peace of mind where children are concerned - floats and pool lilos are provided. With the sun on the pool all day the temperature of the water is perfect and during long evening meals on the terrace a splash around can still be enjoyed.
