The fact that we live close by ensures we will be on hand to help you if you have any questions or problems, we can recommend places of interest, where we like to eat, Golf course we like to play, we can make bookings for you or whatever to ensure you have a great holiday.

Pauline Roche purchased this villa in 2003

Why Pauline Roche chose Manilva Area

We have lived in La Paloma for 10 years and still do. Having lived in many areas in Spain we finally settled in La Paloma and we love it. We have built a new Villa in La Paloma and now are renting this one.

What makes this villa unique

La Paloma is quite, secluded and safe, but within a few mins drive to all amenities, shopping, fine restaurants, quaint villages. There are numerous tourist attractions, this area is still very 'spanish' so you will enjoy the experience but you are never far away from normal comforts & luxuries.

Just perfection!

Amazing villa with an incredible view , beautiful and huge garden and dock with a very nice barbecue, which we appreciate being an Argentinean family in need of an "asado".

The location is excellent.Very close to beaches , towns with restaurants and places to walk around .Only 30 min away from beautiful Marbella which allows you to go more than once for a bit more of nightlife.

The Villa has anything you need for a relaxing stay, huge windows to keep watching at the Mediterraneo all the time , very nice decoration, excellent condition, safe and very comfortable.

We definitely recommend this villa and hope we can come again next summer, and maybe for more than 2 weeks!

Thank you Pauline for a memorable summer in beautiful Andalucia, we had an amazing time in your house !

5* - Our Favourite Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Paloma because of its proximity to Gibraltar and also as it’s only a 5 minute drive to the marinas of Duquesa and Sotogrande. Our party consisted of me, the wife and 3 of our grandchildren (boys).

Due to a delayed flight, we arrived at the villa late in the evening. We were greeted with the friendly face of Pauline, the owner of the villa, who gave us a brief tour. The ‘welcome pack’ was excellent and definitely necessary as we were all hungry and thirsty (at 10pm in the evening, there was little chance of getting food from anywhere else). We only saw Pauline when we arrived and the day we vacated the villa, but she was always only a phone call away to answer any questions.

The photos of villa do not do it justice. The gardens are immaculate and although the villa has contemporary décor in the lounge, it still felt very homely. In the morning when the rest of the party were still in bed, I would sit on wicker seating with a cup of tea in my hand, looking across the gardens towards the sea. This provided me with a refreshing tonic to start my day. Later in the day with the grandkids in the pool, the wife relaxing on a sun bed with wine in hand, and some familiar motown music radiating from the excellent sound system, provided me with yet another soul lifting moment. The villa has a good internet connection, large screen TV and gym, but what I really liked was the little things in the villa (too numerous to mention) that you would normally have at home. It just adds that little extra to your holiday.

We’ve stayed in a large number of villas over the last 20 years, and we can both say that this villa is now one of our favourites. It has character. Perhaps it’s the large amount of greenery, but it feels like our home in the sun. The residential area of Paloma is nice and feels very safe. The marina of Duquesa and Sotogrande provide a nice change of scenery in the evening and there is an excellent beach bar (Romeo’s towards Duquesa) where we had some excellent fresh sea bass.

If you want to recharge your batteries, I can highly recommend staying in this villa. We will definitely be returning to Paloma in the future.
