Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Luxury 3-bed room villa near charming San Pedro de Alcantara close to Marbella, a heated private pool, a gym with separate bathroom

This 3 bedroom villa, called La Candelaria, is newly renovated in a decorative Andalucian rustic style and offers indeed a special way of living. Its beautiful garden includes a heated pool, 10 m x 4 m, an airconditioned gym with a separate bathroom, a big lawn with various flower plants, palm trees, a big open fire place, veranda, patios, terrace, orange and lemon trees, old water fountains and other art works. The location is in a very peaceful hilly residential neighborhood but still just 10-15 min drive to the beaches, many high standard golfcourses, shopping districts, restaurants and bars in the charming villages of San Pedro de Alcantara, Puerto Banus and Marbella and Benahavis. Many interesting historical places are around: the old village of Ronda, the Al Hambra castle, Gibraltar cliff etc. During winter time the ski resort Sierra Nevada is two hours drive away.

The caretaker/gardener of this villa is living next door. He speaks fluently English and is available for driving, cleaning, cooking and lots of other things.

About the Owner

My wife and I have moved back to our home country, Sweden, after having worked in various countries for more than 25 years. We spend lots of our free time in our paradise in the south of Spain. We bought this beautiful home in San Pedro de Alcantara, close to Marbella, about 20 years ago. Both of us really love exterior as well as interior design and therefore our paradise has been under careful renovation for many years. We have three grown up children, who like us love the south of Spain with its wonderful climate, friendly people, long beaches, restaurants and bars and of course high standard golf courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" I would like to say "thank you" from the Mitchell family for the

rental of your property in Spain. We all had a great time - the group

had 4 children who spent a week almost entirely in the pools! Hameed

was most helpful and a delight to be around. I hope we get the

chance to rent the property again - my wife and I particularly liked

the multitude of areas to sit and enjoy all the design features! It is

such a lovely spot and so easy to access from the airport and motorway

- we even managed some trips out (when we could get the kids out of

the pool), to Ronda, Tarifa and (of course) Marbella/Estepona- With

thanks, Andrew Mitchell"

A Year On

  • 5 of 5

A year on , and we return back to La Candelaria for our summer vacation. I always love to travel, and visit new places each year, however La Candelaria is well worth me making an exception for, and returning for the second year...We simply love this villa, and everything about it, the beautiful design, stunning interior, and who has become our friend, Hameed the caretaker...It has everything you could wish for, and the artistic eye of the owners , leaves you with that feeling that you never want to leave...There are items from all over the world placed beautifully inside and out, which capture your imagination...The heated pool, is fantastic for an evening dip, and Hameed will get it to the temperature you desire, he will also be on hand if you need him, for just about anything, he really does make La Candelaria complete....I could not imagine why this Villa would get anything less than 5 stars...Thank you to the owners & of course Hammed .

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

I just read the other reviews and I can totally agree with the other guests about how wonderful this place is, it is magical! We spent there an Easter week and although there were heavy rains that week, we totally enjoyed. The heated pool was steaming in the rain cooled air and we spend ages in the warm water, the roses bloomed and smelled beautiful in the rain. Kitchen is also very good and we were grilling outside fresh shrimp and fish every evening. Our little daughter almost learned how to swim after spending most of the time swimming in the pool so this holiday was memorable also for her.

I warmly recommend this villa for your holiday, it feels like home!

Wonderful space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for just under 3 weeks and it was a delightful holiday!!

We were a party of two adults and 3 teens and some of the time i adult and 4 teens and the outside space gave us all some to chill separately and spend time together. Its quirky decoration was a delight and the pool was very special i spent a lot of time in it .it was very reassuring to have Hamid so close by to guide us to different places and restaurants and sometimes take us Thank you

We have just returned from two weeks at La Canalderia . This villa is simply beautiful with large outdoor space with plenty of shade and a gorgeous heated pool which makes evening dips a must . The rustic style of the accommodation is beautiful and the space and facilities enabled us to have space and lots of relaxation .

Hameed the caretaker is simply wonderful and enhanced our stay by his kindness and help whenever we required it . This villa is magical and we loved our stay -really close to Puerto Banus which was great to visit day or night and 5 mins from the supermarket and San Pedro .

The villa is raised on the side of a hill and gives great views and a peaceful environment where you can really relax .

We have booked again for next year - we truly loved this place

Thanks Wilhelm and Hameed

Emma & family

I can honestly say, this was the nicest and most interesting villa, I have ever stayed in. Each day, I found something new that would take my eye. Clearly the owners of this villa, have filled it with love and creativity, and it must haven taken them a long time to create such a wonderful home.. The villa is beautifully arranged, and has everything that you may need.. The heated swimming pool, was just wonderful, especially for an evening dip... The villa is situated with everything at your finger tips, including some lovely small towns in which to visit..I would personally like to thank the owners for sharing there home with us... We are already saving, so we can visit again next year.....Hopefully we will be able to stay a little longer next year, as we just loved it so much.....
