About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 terraces, pool and spectacular views !!

Nestled in the hills of the Reserva de la Biosfera Sierra de la Nieves, with spectacular mountain, lake and see views up to the Moroccan Rif, the house is located in the charming and quiet area of Cerros del Lago. It is only 6 kms away from the beaches of Marbella and vibrant Puerto Banús (a scenic drive of less than 10 minutes).

Cerros del Lago belongs to Istán, a beautiful white village in the Andalusian tradition with many hiking trails situated within a 10 minute drive where you find local restaurants and their typical atmosphere. In other words, you will be half way between the jet setting ambiance of Marbella and the traditional character of Istán. Perfect for those wishing to unwind and enjoy nature, the mountains as well as the night life of this famous Mediterranean resort. Golfers will find numerous great golf courses within 10 to 30 minutes by car.

Entrance to the house is on the main floor, the house has a living room with a log fireplace, dining area, a modern fully fitted kitchen, a shower room and two terraces enjoying South-West facing views. The ground floor offers two ample double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, one small bedroom linked to one of the main bedrooms, two bathrooms, a utility room and access to a very large terrace.

The house is fully equipped with air conditioning, dishwasher, oven, micro-oven, washing and drying machines, ample crockery equipment, household linen including sheets, towels, bath towels & bed sheets.

There is a large communal pool well maintained all year round at less than 100 meters from the house.

The nearest airport is Malaga at about 60 km, a 50 minute drive.

We had a very enjoyable holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable holiday in this lovely house. It was great to be there, the view to the lake, the mountains and the see is unforgettable. The rooms and there furniture are very stylish and comfortable. We liked very much the 3 terraces and also the short distance to the pool, because in the afternoon it can be very hot behind the house and at the pool it’s always a little windy and therefore less hot. Most of the times there are only a few people at the pool and it's a good area for relaxing. Cerros del Lago is a very quiet place beyond the hustle of Puerto Banus. The house is well equipped with everything that's necessary with one exception: There’s only one real sunbed at the house. For 4 persons – as we were – it’s not enough.

Such a wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Casa Amalia was great! So quiet and such a nice peaceful view on the montains and on the sea. The house is well furnished and very comfortable, the terraces are nicely oriented and it's so pleasant to spend time there. The swimming pools are great and the environment is charming. We enjoyed being less than 10min from the beach but also not far from the center of Marbella and of Puerto Banus. I'm sure my family and I will come back soon!! Thanks for this awazing holiday!

Casa Amalia, un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine en famille dans cette charmante maison.

Très jolie vue comme sur les photos. Village très calme et sécurisant.

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les magnifique piscines bien entretenues à quelques mètres à pied. Plages à quelques minutes en voiture.

Confort, jolie décoration et propreté dans la maison. A recommander!

What a great place !

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week there last September and it was fantastic.

The view is amazing. Siting on the terrace watching the sun setting is a real delight.

It is extremely quiet even in high season although supermarket, beach and lively Puerto Bañus is only 10 minutes away.

We enjoyed the large pool which we had just for us most of the time.

The house was very comfortable and clean. The equipment is great all what you need is there. We felt at home !

  • 5 of 5

Excellente situation, pas de passage, calme assuré dans un endroit avec une vue à tomber ! La maison est équipée avec tout le confort 2015 ! Plusieurs terrasses (pratique si l'on veut soit de l'ombre soit du soleil). A quelques pas grande piscine dans un clos fermé avec une superbe vue et grande terrasse . On y retournera pour jouer au golf dans le coin !
