Overview

About the property

Townhouse near Sotogrande, Costa del Sol - Quiet Location near Duquesa, Beaches and Golf

We are located less than 5 mins drive from Sotogrande with its many designer shops and restaurants and several championship golf courses such as Valderrama, San Roque, Almenara. If you are looking for a more laid back atmosphere then Puerto de la Duquesa is a mere 3 minute drive away with its picturesque marina, you will have your choice of restaurants offering international cuisine, beach chiringuitos and pristine beaches. Sabinillas is the local seaside market town, less than 5 mins drive away where you will find supermarkets, shops, bars, tapas bars and fish restaurants. Blue flag beaches and a twice weekly market ensure it retains a typical Spanish feel. Manilva village is a typical white Spanish pueblo situated at the top of a hill 1.5km from the sea. The many festivals throughout the year entice locals and visitors alike to this village, especially the first week in September when the Vendimia wine festival means 4 days of partying to welcome in the new grape harvest.

About Mike & Inger

My wife and I live and work on the south coast of England - we like coasts and the sea - my wife is from Haugesund on the west coast of Norway. We have two children and two grandchildren and so sun, sea, beaches, coasts and safety for children were of great importance when we were deciding where we should buy our holiday home. We are sure that you will agree with our choice of location.

Mike & Inger purchased this villa in 2010

Why Mike & Inger chose Manilva area

We love this area for the beautiful scenery and the feeling of peace and serenity it gives us when we are there. Nevertheless we are close to lots of blue flag beaches, lots of local life and quiet villages. It also has the attraction of being away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded major resorts - you can escape to the hills as well as the beautiful and relatively empty beaches! We're also quite close to Gibraltar for a day out and, if golf is your thing, we have at least 17 wonderful golf courses within the local area!

What makes this villa unique

We have furnished our home as just that - it's our home, not just a place for holidays and so it has all the creature comforts you would expect from your own home, as well as the scenery, the sea air, the tranquillity, the local and international cuisine, beaches galore and plenty of sunshine all year round!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time staying in your apartment, kids had a great time too. Beautiful house and the view from apartment was beautiful, pool was great and a bonus as it was very quiet there a lot of the time. Thanks again for letting us stay it was great. Many thanks, Louisa.



We have had a very enjoyable holiday. We found the house to be clean, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Many thanks for your help and the information you provided. Kind regards, Jane and Steve.



We had a wonderful time in Spain and were really pleased with the property - thank you. I would be more than happy to recommend your property to any friends who head that way. Jo

Great place for holidays

  • 5 of 5

We, the group of 7 young university friends, rent this beautifull and cozy place for our holidays and it was the best choice! Everything is exactly like from the description and fotos. The place is really clean and well-maintained with spacious rooms and lovely backyard with good-working barbecue facility. And of course the pool nearby was amazing, big and always cleaned, most of the time we were the only ones using it. You can see the sea from the porch and the beaches here are nice as well. So, we surely recommend this place for our friends and other people to have the best place for holidays, that make you feel at home!

Lovely property - beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully clean and well maintained property. This was our second stay with two young boys. The pool is just a few metres away and there are loads of lovely beaches in the area. La Duquesa is a lovely town/marina only 10 minutes drive away, with lovely restaurants, a beautiful beach and great views. An excellent holiday location I would definitely recommend and we will be going back.

Great Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday!

Just returned home after a 2 weeks stay at Vistas las Rocas. Mike and Inger (the owners) make you feel so welcome. The house was spotlessly clean with a real home comfort feel and to top it, the main room had an amazing sea view.

So we had a lovely holiday and will definetly come back!
