Costa del Sol - Malaga villa description
Relax, unwind in spectacular surroundings with views that will never cease to amaze. The fabulous climate which boasts 300 sunny days a year makes this a year round destination, with plenty to do and much to see for demanding travellers. A beautiful, safe, secure villa with plenty to do at home if you enjoy reading, eating, lazing and enjoying the gardens.
On active days, explore nearby Marbella old town, glitzy Puerto Banus harbour, or an hour away the mountain fortress that is Ronda, home to bull fighting.
Winter months are warm and Seville, Granada, Cordoba and even North Africa are a day trip away, for tranquil exploring.
Malaga is home to the Picasso museum and nearby are water parks for children, horse riding, twenty golf courses are within ten minutes of the house.
On summer days, which can be anytime from early April to early November, eat outside, sunbathe by the crystal pool, doze with a book from the library, listen to the cd collection and catch up on sport or films on Sky TV. Our local house manager is on hand to help.
Walk to El Coto restaurant at luchtime or in the evening for fabulous local food, including wild boar from the valley.
The best of the mountains, the coast, sunshine, sport and night life is all around El Madronal, this highly regarded area of multi million houses in the hills behind Marbella.
Mixed groups love this villa as there is masses of space and none of the bedrooms are next to eachother, so everyone has privacy. Rooms are all well spaced with their own en suite bathrooms and both the house and garden has numerous corners to be quiet or join in with the group. The beds are king or queen and two separate into two singles if required, plus we can supply a cot.
All guests are met at the house by our house manager who explains the fabulous cooks kitchen, which has two dishwashers so everything can be loaded away and forgotten. A waste disposal unit , an ice maker, utility room, power showers and fluffy towels for the bathroom and pool towels for the pool, libraries of books, cd's and dvd's are evidence that this is a real home.
We want to make sure your holiday is all that you would wish and are delighted to welcome you.

We have just returned after being lucky enough to spend another week in this beautiful, spacious, relaxing villa with everything on hand to accommodate your every need. It's location is ideal for visiting many other beautiful destinations many of which we have visited over the years including, Benaldamena (lovely harbour and shops) Marbella (beautiful old town area) Puerto Bañus, Rhonda, Estepona,Granada, Gibraltar, Tarifa (stunning beaches, and a surfers paradise). This year we visited The Alhambra in Granada which is an absolutely incredible place, San Pedro beach has been continually improved, has free parking, a lovely, long flat promenade and now includes beach showers, nice cafes and restaurants. Mistral beach on the way to Puerto Bañus is a good beach for small children too as the beach shelves gradually into the sea. Benhavis is about 15 minutes away and is the dining room of Costa del Sol, plenty of very reasonable, very good quality restaurants. Also here you can book jeep safaris and escorted river, climbing, caving and walking trips. Just 50 minutes from La Cotorra we discovered the village of Juzcar which was completely painted blue for the 2011 Smurf film. Fun little visit if you have children. El Coto is always a lovely restaurant to visit and the walk back is gladly all downhill! We already miss the pool and garden areas with the fantastic views.

We were a group of ten and all found the accomodation wonderful. The views, gardens, pool, patio were spectacular. We could not have asked for more!We visited Ronda, Puerto Banus, Marbella, Seville, Granada and Gibraltar. We also lounged at the beach, ate wonderful meals out and enjoyed much wine and laughter around the dining room table. This is a truly magical spot. We will highly recommend this to all our friends who want to explore the south of spain.

About: This is our family holiday house and we love it here and want you to enjoy it too, so we keep in close touch with you before you holiday and then introduce you to the wonderful Pat Collins who lives nearby and will meet you with keys and explain how everything works. She can help organise anything special that you need in advance or during your stay and is well used to all kinds of requests. She is also in charge of house cleaning and maintenance. Our children have grown up coming here and they love it and it will always be part of our lives. We can walk to the local El Coto restaurant in moments and the chef has been the same for fifteen years. This is the real Spain, but close to the glamour of the coast.
Why Costa del Sol - Malaga:
We came on holiday here for a week to stay with friends in El Madronal and fell in love with it so much we bought this house in this same valley before we went home! We have never regretted it. It is a magical place for family, friends and being together.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our family works hard, our children work in law, the media, films and we can find precious time here together to catch up and unwind. We also come with friends, some play golf, others explore and enjoy the sunshine. Everyone loves it and we hope you will love it as well. We work hard to make sure it is as nice if not better than home.
