About Ian Facer

Pharmacist and owner of a Pharmacy and Opticians business in Preston Lancashire

Ian Facer purchased this villa in 1999

Why Ian Facer chose Manilva

The property has a great location and is only an hours drive from the main airports. Duquesa is far enough down the coast to still retain the charm of a local marina and yet far enough to avoid the crowds from the major tourist resorts. We are only 40 minutes drive from Gibraltar and the rock airport.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning hilltop location in a quiet partially residential urbanization

Hill top Villa Princesa Kristina

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous Villa with all that you needed for a home from home stay. The views are, as described, Stunning by day and by night. Quiet, clean friendly area and is good if you want to get away from crowded holiday resorts and beaches. I have been to this area many times and will be coming back again next year. Care hire is essential if you want to get out and about and also because it is up a very steep hill, although it is worth it. So many great points and if you don't mind not having Wi-Fi, I would highly recommend this Villa

Owner's Response: Great to hear you enjoyed your holiday. As you say the hill top position gives fantastic views down the coast and Duquesa is a smart resort busy enough to have atmosphere but away from the crowds of the larger resorts. The property does benefit from Wi-Fi throughout which also allows streaming of a full range of English TV and movie channels.

Fabulous villa and facilities in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

The villa has spectacular views and a great setting on the edge of a nice urbanization. There were great facilities to make for a comfortable home from home experience - dishwasher, washing machine, and entertainment systems.

The furniture and fittings were tasteful, modern and all worked well such as the air conditioning. The bed in the master bedroom was large and very comfortable.

The outdoor space was large and private - great for sunbathing and eating plus there was plenty of outdoor furniture. It was nice having a stock of basics in the kitchen such as herbs, oils, cling film, and cleaning products etc so you didn't have to start from scratch.

The communal pools and areas were only 5 minutes walk from the villa, very well kept and not at all busy - it was great having a children's and adult pool.

La Duquesa was lovely - enough restaurants and bars, particularly at the Port without being too busy - at least in September. You do really need a car to stay here. We had some great days out - Malaga, Estepona, Ronda and Gibraltar were all worth a visit and took about an hour's drive or less.

The owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with, which all contributed to a very positive first experience of booking on Owner's Direct! I would definitely recommend a stay at this villa and will book it again in the future if we want to stay in this area.

beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is comfortable, spacious accomodation with stunning views, the photos really do not do it justice. The port itself didn't have much in the way to occupy teenagers as they wanted to do watersports but the villa is a perfect base for sightseeing. We had a lovely week.

Great villa!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed every single moment. The villa is well-equipped, comfortable and overall it is very well kept so we felt like home. The terrace is great with stunning mountain and sea views we will never forget. A great choice of music and lots of things that made our stay wonderful! The pools are clean and we enjoyed spending time there. A great value for money! We definitely would like to come back!!!

Great views, great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place, great location, great views. What more can I say? Really enjoyed our stay. Very clean and tidy, very good facilities. Larger space inside villa and outside than photos can show. Lovely outside patios for alfresco dining. Hire a car for best use of the area...not too far from Gibraltar and/or Estepona and Marbella. Definitely book again if we are going to stay in this area on future visits to Spain. Only downside is lack of English TV channels (due to satellite cover in Southern Europe). Is strange that cannot receive BBC channels but can

Sky news and some CBS channels...even S4C! Never mind...didn't go to watch TV. Take some DVD's and maybe PS3 games as there is console there if you need to. Personally, a kindle and a selection of books was best investment for R&R time. All in all, a lovely place to stay.

Wunderschöne Villa mit traumhafter Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Die super eingerichtete und ausgestattete Villa liegt etwas ausserhalb von Duquesa, man sollte schon ein Auto dabei haben. Den Ausblick vergißt man so schnell nicht mehr. Wir waren Ende Oktober 2017 da und hatten eine super Woche. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett, die Schlüssel holt man aus einen Safe einer in Duquesa gelegenen Immobilienfirma und gibt ihn dort auch wieder ab (Briefkasten). Die A7 ist weit genug entfernt um nicht zu nerven, aber dicht genug um Gibraltar oder Marbella schnell zu erreichen. In Duquesa gibt s etliche Restaurants und Pubs, leider findet man dort kaum einheimische Küche, der Ort ist eher in britischer Hand ;-)

Das WLAN ist übrigens schnell genug für Netflix etc. - die Teenies werden also grundversorgt ;-)
