About the property

Villa in Duquesa, Costa del Sol, Spain - Peaceful And Private - Close To Beach & Restaurants

Beautiful private luxury villa with a large 10m x 5m pool which is palm and tree lined. Stunning views from the top terrace which overlook the vineyards. The villa unlike others on the development has been extended to create a fifth bedroom and sun/kids room on the ground floor allowing us to sleep 10 people comfortably. The villa is furnished to a high standard, with all the mod cons such as free WiFi, digital television, dishwasher, air con, microwave, DVDs and a log fire for the winter months. The villa is luxurious but child friendly with walled grounds, gated intercom and electric remote controlled gates giving a feeling of security and total privacy. There is an orange tree in the garden, a variety of palm trees and colourful abundance of bushes and flowers. Two sides of the villa have mature green gardens,with plenty of room to kick a ball or sunbathe.The pool is surrounded by a large terracotta terrace with sun beds for all your group to soak up the rays. The pool has a shallow end that is 1m deep with roman steps and the deepest point is 1.9m. There is a large outdoor BBQ area on the ground floor terrace with a large table and chairs. The large upper terrace has stunning views over the pool & local vineyard and is the perfect spot for enjoying the evening sunshine with a cold glass of beer or wine.

About Katy Hancock

My husband and I own 2 villas on this urbanisation. It is very peaceful, yet not to far from the shops, banks, restaurants, beaches and bars! My youngest son is now 10 but we only returned to the uk last year so I am full of information about all the places to go from theme parks to nature reserves. There is an abundance of places to visit should you wish, Jerez - where the sherry comes from is only an hours drive and the White Village of Casares less then 15 minutes away. Please feel free to approach me with any questions about anything and we will do our very best to fill in the gaps. Happy holiday planning!

Katy Hancock purchased this villa in 2004

Why Katy Hancock chose Manilva area

Luxury, child friendly, great outdoor space with large patio and barbecue area, mature garden and an excellent sized pool. Close to all amenities and the port of Duquesa is a hidden gem.

What makes this villa unique

The large upstairs terrace with views over the pool at one end and the vineyard on the other, enjoying the evening sunshine with a cold beer or glass of wine, does it get any better?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Morning Katy

Back in England and feeling the cold.

Just wanted to let you know what a lovely time we had and the villa was fabulous. The whole family enjoyed the spacious villa pool any grounds and would love to come back again. I would have no hesitation in recommending to my friends and family.

Kind regards

Fabulous Villa for a large family

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just as described so wasn't disappointed. Big enough for my party of 11. The pool area was so spacious and clean plenty of sun beds and seating around the large clean pool.. The villa inside was of a very high standard and clean. The wifi was a real advantage. Felt safe in this gated villa which had some lovely views. Katy was very helpful and gave us a lots of information regarding the villa, location and all the lovely places to visit and eat in Duquesa. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and will certainly go back again. We had a wonderful holiday.

Perfect villa for a large family

  • 5 of 5

The villa was spacious, comfortable and very clean. There was plenty of room for our party of 9. The secure garden with pool were excellent and kept in very good condition with a large outdoor eating area and sunbeds.

There were such lovely views and scenery. There was plenty to do in the nearby towns. Duquesa Port had a good variety of restaurants.

Katy was so helpful while I was planning this holiday and provided me with lots of local information on places to visit and was happy to assist with any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Perfect family getaway in Duquesa

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this fabulous villa if you are thinking of visiting Duquesa or the surrounding area. The port is really picturesque with so many different restaurants available. There are also some fantastic local restaurants in Castillo that were well worth the visit.

As a group of six adults, the villa had everything we needed and was a real home from home. The free wifi was also much appreciated! There are also a number of supermarkets close by so we had plenty of barbeques making use of the great amount of private, outdoor space it offers. The garden and pool were everything you could want with plenty of sunbeds and shade for those who required it.

It was everything we hoped it would be and the Katy was friendly and helpful throughout, answering all our queries and ensuring the process went smoothly! I would happily book again if we were back in the area
