Large Luxury Villa with Full AC Large Secluded Garden and Luxury Private Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Luxury Villa with Large Garden and Pivate Pool in Atalaya Baja, Estepona, Costa del Sol, Spain - Peaceful Location 400 Metres From The Beach

"Araucaria" is a fully AC 4 bed 3 bath luxury villa sitting in a private garden of around 1500 square metres with a large luxury private pool. It is approximately 400 metres from the beach at Atalaya and the Atalaya Park Hotel with all its facilities. Surrounded by several first class golf courses and under an hour’s drive from Malaga airport, it offers peaceful seclusion yet is only minutes by car from the attractions of Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona and the gastronomic mountain village of Benahavis. The spectacular city of Ronda and the renowned ‘Pueblo Blanco’ of Casares are both within easy reach and for the more adventurous, the great Andalusian cities of Granada, Seville and Cadiz are around 2 hours away. Or if you prefer, you can leave the car in the garage and walk to the beach or many local shops and restaurants. There is also a regular bus service serving all points between Estepona and Marbella. For families with children, the garden offers a secure and enclosed play area.

If you are thinking of booking this place then read the description. It is both truthful and accurate.

We usually look for a rural place for peace and quiet but we'd been let down, our holiday dates were fixed, our flights booked and we needed to find somewhere that could fit us in. We read the reviews. They said this property is quiet and not overlooked. We used google street and were somewhat sceptical - but we were wrong! What a gem of a place. Quiet, not overlooked, superb large pool, big garden, all the facilities you need. Perfect!

Once you get your head around the weird Spanish street planning (if you can call it that) access to and from the A7 is just a few hundred yards away - not that you can hear a thing when you are at the property - and it opens up the Costa Del Sol. We popped into Marbella (25 minutes) for some Scuba Diving (there is a Scuba Diving centre within a 10 minute walk of the villa but we specifically wanted to dive with Simply Diving), Puerto Banus (10 minutes) to see the celebs and watch life go by, Estepona (15 minutes) to shop and even Gibraltar was under an hour away. But mainly, we stayed at the villa and enjoyed its serenity.

One night we walked to a really lovely local restaurant across the A7. We left 20 minutes before our booking time and had to stop off for a drink in a local bar because we were so early - everything is that close! And yet, you'd never know it sitting by the pool.

Would we stay again? - Yes.

Una villa de lujo a tu alcance

  • 5 of 5

Es el tercer año que pasamos una quincena de verano en casa de Chris. Solo podemos decir cosas agradables de la casa. Tiene todas las comodidades que puedas necesitar y un jardín y piscina súper cuidado y maravilloso. La localización es perfecta en una urbanización muy tranquila pero con todo lo necesario en pocos kilómetros. Y muy bien comunicado tanto por Bús así como muy cercana a la autovia. Todos son facilidades por parte de las personas encargadas de la recepción de la casa.

Amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5

Great villa would highly recommend for families! Our group was 2 families. 4 adults 4 children! 2 four year olds who had their own bedrooms and 2 babies under one who stayed in cots provided In the parents rooms! All rooms are very spacious! The villa is laid out well so we had one end of the villa and the other family had the other side!

It was perfect for us as one of the babies was crawling everywhere so the fact that there was no stairs was perfect! Also the gated pool made it even more perfect as there was no need to worry! The pool is huge and not really deep which was also good with the kids! It gets deeper at one end and I'm 5ft 9 and I could put my feet on the floor and was up to my neck if that helps?! The water was lovely and warm! The gardens are lovely and well maintained!

There is a lady called Julie who is your contact our there she was very helpful and easily contactable! We had our bath towels and bed sheets changed and bathrooms cleaned a week in to our two week holiday which we didn't expect so that was nice! There is a steriliser which came in handy with the baby bottles! High chair, Washing machine/dryer also very handy!

There are beach towels you can use also and lots of sun hairs outside! And a BBQ! Great welcome pack and information pack with everything you need to know! Aldi is 2 mins in the car around the corner! There are some shops and bars close by also! And very close to other places. We are familiar with the area and found it was a good spot to stay!

We felt very at home there and would highly recommend! Hopefully we can return very soon!

Well maintained property and excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was clean with a large well mainted garden and an excellent pool. Location was ideal and the restuarnts nearby a lot cheaper than in the centre of Puerto Banus and having an Aldi supermarket around the corner from the Villa was also a bonus!

The centre of Puerto Banus was a 10 min taxi ride away which was great.

I would recomend this villa for any large or family

The customer provided by the owner and manager was excellent.

Overall an excellent stay.

one of the best vllas we have stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is very spacious and the layout is perfect for two families. The Welcome pack was excellent and the garden and pool very well maintained. The pool was good for little ones, not too deep, and the safety fence ideal. We found the area quiet and relaxing which we thought would not be the case because of the main road. All the restaurants are very friendly and in easy walking distance. There is only a tiny beach but to be honest we didn't need it as the villa has everything. The Mijas donkeys are only 40 minutes away, an excellent day out! And the Wifi worked perfectly in and outside the villa.

Lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 2 adults , 6 children stayed her for 2 weeks & had super holiday. Villa is very comfortable, spacious & perfect for family. All the bare essentials sugar,salt,pepper, washing up liquid etc etc are there so it's a real home feeling. Lovely large welcome pack on arrival - thank you. Lovely big pool & beautiful garden. The Gardner comes ever second day -same time for well over hour , cleans pool, waters flowers etc , We didn't speak each other language but he was friendly. Villa near a beach but the beach is not great , very stony & dirty sand. I thought originally booking we were near the prommenade in San pedro or could connect by this beach to prommenade but not possible. However had to walk around the block a few times to get our walks in!! Up the road little mini market called "Sally's "- who we went to every morning - has everything fresh. Very close to a handful restaurants & taxi & bus stop. We hired a car for second week & travelled to different areas which were lovely. Overall great holiday ,hot weather & great villa & I would definitely recommend for a family we had super time.
