About the property

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. For your convenience, especially families with children, we would recommend hiring a car

About Barbara K. Williams

Many years ago, we bought an old abandoned farm and made it into a wonderful holiday destination. I have lived here for more than 20 years and do not wish to leave this beautiful place!

Barbara K. Williams purchased this villa in 1981

Why Barbara K. Williams chose Manilva

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.

What makes this villa unique

As soon as you reach the Villa and put your luggage down you will feel very much at home. Everything is prepared to high standards for a stress free holiday for all the family. The children will enjoy the freedom the Villa and its surroundings offers them.

Beautiful views, peaceful and everything you need for a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here (my husband, two young children, brother and parents) for seven days and we had a fantastic time. Barbara is amazing, so kind and helpful and makes sure you have everything you need. My children also loved Barbara and enjoyed talking to her, meeting her dog and horse! The villa has everything you need, very comfortable and in an amazing location, the views are stunning. You are close to the beach and the port so going out is easy but at the same time you could be in the middle of nowhere. A really beautiful spot and looked after so well by Barbara. Thank you!

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great Property, incredibly well serviced with everything you would need to have a great holiday, exceptionally clean and verywell maintained. Barbara is always close by for any required help. I would highly recommend this villa as a holiday destination, ideal for a family or couple if you like the quiet life but close enough to plenty of entertainment alternatives. My only gripe is the 1km 'off road' commute to the entrance which is not walkable at night.

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.
