Villa in a beautiful location with views of the see. Private pool, AC and Internet.



Updated: 14-Oct-2016
Villa Nr.Duquesa Marina, Manilva, Costa del Sol, close to beach and amenities.

A welcoming villa with its bright and comfortably furnished interiors. It is set in approx. 3000m2 of private land, fenced and accessed through automatic gates. It enjoys a delightful position over a valley with sea and countryside views. It is surrounded by a beautiful mature garden with an abundance of flowers and trees and manicured exterior surroundings. The popular and vibrant Marina of Duquesa is within a walking distance from the Villa offering a wide selection of restaurants, cafés and access to one of the many beautiful and well maintained beaches along this coast. The quality garden furniture, the attractive pergola and table tennis invite the guests to outdoor living. A large covered terrace allows to relax away from the sun without missing on the spectacular views of the sea and countryside.

The layout of the villa takes into account the privacy of the guests and includes a separate guests apartment with its own entrance.

It is a charming Villa with character and many extras to make our guests feel at home.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults & 3 small children spent our perfect holiday here for the 2nd time. Quijote is a luxury villa, furnished to the highest standard. It is even better than the description. The lounge is large with lots of light. The kitchen is fully equipped. The patio & pool area are perfect for dining, relaxing or scootering. There is even a toy box & a table tennis table. There are views to both mountain & sea & total privacy. 10 mins walk to 2 supermarkets, 15 min to beach with chiringuitos & Duquesa. Estepona is 10 mins drive. Barbara is helpful when asked but is fully respectful of privacy. Great villa - great holiday Thanks again Barbara

Fabulous villa with lovely views of the countryside and the sea.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa set in the countryside, homely, clean, everything you could ever want from a villa holiday. Spacious grounds, lovely pool, great facilities. Barbara, the owner was very attentive and went out of her way to ensure we were well looked after. Our only regret was that we didn't hire a car, as you do need one. We would definitely return to this haven. Thank you Barbara for a lovely week.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place El Quijote is. If you are a discerning holidaymaker, look no further. What makes the villa so special is it's incredible location. It is approached via an unmade road just off the A7, which leads on to Barbara's beautiful private road, flanked on both sides by tall trees. You have the feeling you are driving onto an estate. Once through the electric gates, you drive up to the villa which is on a very large and beautifully terraced plot. As the villa is on private land, you have no properties nearby, the privacy is wonderful, and the views of the sea and the countryside are stunning - you can sit on the settee in the lounge and look straight out to sea. You cannot see or hear the A7 from the Villa, yet it is just 1Km away. The villa itself is excellently equipped, the lounge is elegantly furnished, very comfortable and Barbara has thought of everything you may need, we were able to hold a dinner party for 6 whilst we were there. We definitely hope to return. and would not hesitate to recommend it, it surpassed our expectations. Thank you Barbara, love to you and Benjy.

Thank you for a marvellous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Barbara for your welcome and hospitality during our stay. The villa was a home from home the minute we stepped in.

Everything was ideally suited for the family holiday I had dreamed of. The boys loved it and the freedom the villa allowed them.

A wonderful holiday destination - we will definitely be back to see you again, Barbara. Thank you for the kindness you showed the children.

Until next year,

Best wishes,

We had a fabulous fortnight in what for us was the perfect Villa and location. Our wonderful host Barbara was superb, nothing was too much trouble for her. The Villa was exactly as described and spotless. The boys (2 and 4) and the rest of us loved the pool

plus living in our own villa with the facilities, privacy and security it afforded was very special. La Duquesa Marina is very family orientated with many eateries to choose from. A holiday which will hold many treasured memories for a long time to come. We would highly recommend El Quijote Thank you so much

From the Owner

I love the sea but I also love nature as much and El Quijote offers the best of both worlds; the beautiful countryside and the sea with sandy beaches just 900m away. Surrended by cultivated fields, vineyards and nature give a feeling of freedom and peace.
