The villa is beautiful and you will not be disappointed. We stayed for a week and would have happily moved in!! It is on top of the hill with views out over the sea from the front and the mountains at the back are. The facilities at the villa are all spot on and just as described in the details. You will need a car, but within a 5 min drive there is a large Carrefore supermarket with all the fresh fruit, veg meat and bread that you will need and next to the supermarket is the beach. Estepona has plenty of restaurants and bars and shops so suits all tastes. Lots of other places all within easy reach by car. Will definitely be going back again.
A lovely villa in a peaceful & stunning setting
We had a really wonderful holiday at Villa Almendra. The villa was spotlessly clean , spacious and well equipped- and the views are simply magnificent. Estepona is a very short drive away- and the the stunning white hill top towns of Gaucin, Casares and Benahavis are nearby. Only 20 mins to Marbella, the old town is worth a visit. The villa is ideally situated, whether one wishes to visit local areas of interest or simply relax 'at home'. The terrace at the rear of the property is very spacious and has amazing views of the mountains. One is well placed for delightful walks- we encountered the friendly local goatherd several times whilst out walking! The only sounds one hears, in general are the occasional tinkling of the goats'bells and the birdsong! The pool is situated at the front of the property in a lovely garden- and we enjoyed taking breakfast there in the mornings on the pool terrace. There is a large glass panel set into the wall, affording great sea views. The pool is lovely - not enormous- but it was big enough for us- and the pool and gardens well kept by the delightful Fede. Generally he used to pop in early in the mornings to clean the pool and water the gardens- we never heard him. He visited mid- morning on one occasion only, to meet us, and was charming and helpful. We will definitely return to Villa Almendra and have already reserved another 2 weeks in October this year.
We recommend the villa most highly.
Outstanding villa with great design
Really exceeded expectations. Perfect for family of 5; in 3 large bedrooms; Layout tremendous - at least for us, with multiple balconies at each floor and with different perspectives; view out to mountains beautiful. Only slight negatives were Internet doesn't really function; runs out of data very quickly and it's not clear how to charge; also pool is small and more for refreshment than anything else - but suited us down to the ground. Property a little secluded - which didn't worry us, but worth considering; certainly need car and 20% gradients on small road to villa.
A real quality property, beautifully kept and we would have no hesitation in going back.
Thanks a lot for great vacation
Heerlijke grote ruime villa in bijzonder rustige omgeving. Dicht bij de kust en het centrum. De eigenaren zijn goed bereikbaar en reageren snel. Super onderhouden, zowel de villa als het zwembad. We hadden het idee dat elke dag de poolboy langs kwam. Ook het uitzicht is top.
Lovely villa in a beautiful location
The villa is well equipped, very comfortable and was very clean on arrival. It is situated within easy driving reach of the main town and local beaches but is in a peaceful and tranquil setting with a lovely view of an unspoilt green valley from the main balcony. The pool has no deep end making it ideal for people of all ages. Estepona is yet to suffer the over development seen along much of the Costa del Sol and, as recommended in the visitor book at the villa, is ideally placed for trips to Gibraltar and Casares. All the family had a great holiday and we would recommend the Villa to other people.
This is a beautiful villa in a fabulous location, The villa has everything you need on your holidays, from the kitchen to the bedrooms and bathrooms, there was plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, bbq ect, a home away from home,
We just loved the setting of the Villa up in the hills very quiet and peaceful yet we were near enough to Estepona, (5min drive) where there are fab restaurants and shops and of course the beach, there is also a lovely marina in the town, they have boats for private hire or with groups. Fede (pool guy) called a fews time to clean pool and upkeep the garden who was very friendly, We had two teenagers with us and there favorite part of the holiday was the rental of Buggys (Sol Buggy) you are brought up the mountains on and off road worth the money. The directions to the villa were exact and easy to follow, we were all very impressed with our holiday and if I go back to this area which is likely I will definitely rent this property again
Thank you Carol and George
Activity and Interests
This hill top residence is 5 km from Estepona on the eastern side. It is an area of natural beauty with views up the coast to Marbella and an abundance of trees and stunning mountains as a back-drop. A short drive takes you down to your closest beach with a number of beach bars (Chiringuitas). Estepona is a pretty, traditional Spanish town with an abundance of tapas bars, wonderful fresh fish restaurants and a long wide beach with a 2 mile long sea-front promenade. The town also has a bustling marina with bars and restaurants all overlooking the Yacht harbour.
Take a drive along the coast to the Northeast and you will reach Puerto Banus (20 minutes) and Marbella (30 minutes). Or drive southwest along the coast to Puerto Duquesa (20 minutes) with its delightful marina, Sotogrande (30 minutes) with its grand villas and Gibraltar (45 minutes).
Just a few miles away you will also find Selwo Safari Park. The largest of its kind in Spain, the African styled safari park features over 2000 species of animals living in more than 100 hectares of land in semi-wild conditions.
