Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Istan - Finca Brisas del Cielo

A rustic villa and self contained cottage, near Marbella - 4 bedrooms - sleeps 8

A 4 bedroom rustic finca style country villa, sleeps 8, six in the main house and two in the self contained cottage.

This country property has a large private infinity pool and is set in a rural and tranquil location in the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park but is within easy driving distance of Marbella and Puerto Banus. Set in its own grounds of nearly two acres the property has three double bedrooms and a self contained double bedroomed cottage overlooking the large pool. There are 180 degree rural lake views from covered and open terraces and a large barbecue terrace.

Peaceful and tranquil, the finca is ideal for a relaxing break close to some of the best amenities on the Costa del Sol including numerous Golf Courses, which are within easy reach. The lake is great for fishing and kayaking and we have a double and a single kayak for use to explore the various inlets. There is great walking for all levels in the surrounding countryside and horse riding is available locally.

Check the testimonials to see what previous guests have thought of their stays.

BEACHES: The coast is only 10kms away and offers a great range of beaches to cater for all tastes. There are plenty of family friendly beaches, luxury beaches (Nikki Beach), disco beaches (Puerto Banus), and even a naturist beach at Cabopino. All offer beach bars or restaurants. A range of water sports is also available from the beaches as well as the large number of marinas and ports in the area including Puerto Banus, Marbella, Cabapino, and Estepona.

The vibrant and throbbing marina of Puerto Banus is only 9kms from the finca and offers international shopping alongside bustling ethnic markets and an outstanding range of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The cosmopolitan town of Marbella with it's galleries, boutiques and seafront promenade is only 10kms away offering some of the best shopping and visitor facilities in Southern Spain. The cobbled streets and alleyways around it's world famous Plaza de Naranjos (Orange Square) offer ethnic goods alongside haut couture. The Square itself has a range of excellent restaurants with many more nearby.

ACTIVITIES: The villa is close to Marbella & Puerto Banus, but it's rural position offers easy access to an exciting and diverse range of other activities. It is on the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park (so beautiful it has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere) and offers easy and challenging walks as well as horse riding and guided Jeep and quad bike tours. The countryside has an incredible range of spring flowers, fauna and wildlife including Golden Eagles, Ibex, and wild boars. We have private access to the reservoir which is great for swimming, kayaking and has good carp fishing and we have a double kayak for exploring the lake and inlets.

Tennis and Padle is available only 6 kms away at the Manolo Santanna Racquets Club, which also has a fully equipped gymnasium for working out.

There is a Sea Life Centre, Amusement Park and Dolphinarium in Benalmadena, about 25kms away, which also has a cable car ride to a café and viewing point in the hills behind the town where you can take a donkey ride or watch horse riding displays.

There is a great Water Park at neighbouring Torremolinos.

Selwo Aventura wildlife enclosure near Estepona is 20kms away, where you can take a Jurassic Park type ride and see lions, tigers, elephants and giraffes and more, in natural settings.

Clay Pigeon Shooting is available at the Monda Gun Club, in Monda, about 15 km away. It is a great place to enjoy a family day and has fantastic 360 degree hilltop views, a good pool, bar, and restaurant and also offers Archery and Cross Bows, Horse Riding and Air Pistols.

Less than an hours drive away is Gibraltar with it's cable car to the top of the Rock. There is plenty to do and see including scuba diving and visiting the 300 year old defensive caves.

For the adventurous who might like to visit Africa, it’s only 25 km away across the Straits of Gibraltar – an easy 30 minute trip by the catamaran ferry which leaves several times daily from Tarifa to Tangiers.

Tarifa, with it's wide sandy beaches and dunes, is recognised as the kite and wind surfing centre of Europe.

PLACES TO VISIT: The villa is a great base for visiting other villages, towns and cities within the area. Little can rival the spectacular drive to Ronda or crossing the bridge above it's deep gorge which housed it's ancient prison, or a visit to it's bull ring, said to be the oldest in Spain.

The city of Malaga is steeped in history but enjoys many modern facilities including a busy commercial port. The other Pueblo Blancos of Mijas, Casares and Benahavis are all nearby and worth visiting.

Granada with it's beautiful and historic Alhambra Palace is under two hours drive away and makes a wonderful day out.

About Gordon & Carolyn Westcott

I was working in the City when I was offered the opportunity of working for a friend in Spain and, after much deliberation, decided to give it a go and try to redress the work/life balance and take a sabbatical from the world of insurance.

We were incredibly lucky to find this finca (rural property), built but not finished, which gave us an almost blank canvass to develop our own Spanish Dream. We had three fabulous years living there, mostly in a perpetual building site, but it never stopped us enjoying the sheer pleasure of our surroundings. We altered the layout, fitted the kitchen, finished the bathrooms, extended the original house, built the infinity pool, laid new terraces and set out the gardens and still found time to harvest our olives and almonds.

We were thrilled to be selected by BBC's Groundforce to do a complete makeover on our back garden. It was shown as their last ever episode and those memories will remain with us forever.

Since returning to the UK we have kept as closely involved with Spain, Istan and the finca as possible and get no greater pleasure than hearing that our guests get as much enjoyment from their stay as we did, and still do.

Gordon & Carolyn Westcott purchased this villa in 2002

Why Gordon & Carolyn Westcott chose Istan

When we decided to buy we spent a long time finding the perfect spot. A view over water was our biggest wish and also to be away from the coastal strip but not miles away from anywhere. We searched from Gaucin & Casares to Alhaurin, Coin & Mijas but fell in love with Istan. It's position at the end of the mountain road at the head of the Rio Verde valley means it is one of the lesser known Pueblo Blancas (White Villages) and has not been spoilt by tourism and still retains Spanish charm and traditions.

The finca is only 10kms (about a 15 minute drive) from the bustling coastal area but enjoys a seclusion, peace and tranquillity all it's own, truly the best of both worlds.

What makes this villa unique

Because we finished the house in the way we liked and furnished it for our own living it feels very homely and this comment has been passed by many of our guests and also that the villa has a certain ambience - but it's the location that is stunning.

The house sits comfortably on the hillside, surrounded by mountains and overlooking the lake with few other houses in view. It has several living spaces and families of 8 have been able to have as much personal privacy or communal 'get togethers' as they may want, yet a single couple can get just as much pleasure without feeling they are 'rattling around'.

We feel the uniqueness of our house is the ability to get as much life and activity as anyone might want in Marbella and Puerto Banus, and other towns, villages, beaches and marinas on the Costa del Sol and yet return easily to the silence and tranquillity of the mountain. Whenever we are there we make sure we are always on the front terrace for when the sun dips below the hills on the far side of the lake, glass of chilled wine in hand, toasting 'end of day' and listening to relaxing music. Our choice of music? Enya's 'Day Without Rain'. What will yours be?

Spacious yet cosy with stunning views

  • 5 out of 5
Although the property is very spacious, suiting 8 comfortably, it is still very cosy and homely.

The house was immaculate on arrival, and our babies cot bed and blanket was ready as promised. A very thoughtful touch after a long journey were some beers, wine and water laid out for guests. Not that you're far from civilisation! Just far enough away from the crowds to enjoy a very peaceful stay and relax.

With a choice of terraces for eating on we would alternate throughout the day, using the BBQ terrace for evening meals. Lovely to have the choice! The villa is equipped with all mod cons really making it easy and a home away from home.

We loved Istan, the white walled village at the top of the mountain. Had some great authentic meals there at reasonable prices! Also recommend Marbella old town for an afternoon wander or for an excellent dinner.

Eating in is a great option too. We used the Mercadona supermarket at the bottom of the mountain which was very reasonable.

We loved it so much we were talking of going again this summer but alas it is all booked up, which is how it should be. It's a gem of a place! Thank you Gordon and Carolyn!

"Woah!"

"Woah!"
  • 5 out of 5
When you first pull up to the villa and set foot on that terrace, your reaction will probably be similar to mine - "Woah!".

It's a lovely, homely property with stunning views looking out onto the lake and adjacent mountains. The pool area is very open plan with no fencing to spoil the scenery.

Everything was very clean inside and out. Plenty of cooking utensils and even a Kenwood mixer which we put to good use for cocktails!

Overall a very pleasant stay. Recommended.

A fantastic holiday property

  • 5 out of 5
What a fantastic holiday property. A brilliant holiday was had by us all. The description on the web page was totally accurate, the property was spotlessly clean with every amenity you could ask for. A perfect venue for a quiet, relaxing holiday.
The location was very secluded, a little bumpy on the final journey, but well worth it, not too far from Marbella and surrounding towns making this the ideal holiday villa.

Even better than last year ... Is that possible?

  • 5 out of 5
Same old gorgeous villa, same old fabulous weather and views, same old high standards of equipment and comfort, but now they've topped it with air conditioning throughout. Had a perfect week. Seven adults altogether and it never felt crowded - there's so many different bits to the garden - pool, casita patio, barbecue area and the balcony - all delightful. And what a brilliant location - completely away from it all, yet so close to Marbella for the sea, Puerto Banus for the high life, golf clubs galore, Istan for a taste of the old Spain.... Brilliant

Absolutely amazing, out of this world!

  • 5 out of 5
Not one to normally write reviews, my fiance and I were so impressed we wanted to share our fantastic experience...

We arrived on a beautiful sunny afternoon at Finca Brisas del Cielo and it was even better than we expected. Completely secluded up in the tranquil mountains, such an idyllic setting. The only sound you could hear was the breeze in the surrounding olive trees. We were pleasantly surprised to find some cold beers, wine and water in the fridge to greet us on arrival as well as fresh coffee - a nice touch we thought.

We had a fantastic week spending most of our time at the villa only leaving to stock up at the local supermarket just 15 minutes drive away, and a trip to the market at Puerto Banus - well worth a visit.

If you're looking to get away and be completely secluded and tucked away in the mountains then this is the place for you. The Finca is very well equipped with all mod cons - from an iPod dock in the kitchen, through to baby gates, a wood burner, dishwasher, lilos for the swimming pool and even a fishing rod. We utilised the later at the resovoir which the villa overlooked, catching mirror, common and crucian carp. The Finca is a beautiful property nestled in the mountains nicely positioned with panoramic views of the surrounding area. We spent almost every evening sipping wine on the various terraces indulging in a feast cooked up on the (very clean and well kept) BBQ. Although it was only the two of us, the house would suit almost everyone. For us it was a lovely romantic retreat. Sleeping six in the house and a further four in the casieta, it would be a fantastic setting for a group of friends or a family looking for great place to base themselves.

The whole house and surrounding property was very clean and well presented. The infinity pool was crystal clear and many an hour was spent with a beer/glass of wine in hand, on the lilo admiring the view.

From start to finish everything was fantastic. We had excellent communication from the owners and the place was exactly/better than described/expected.

We would definitely recommend this to friends and we're already looking to book again for year.

What a memorable week in idyllic Istan...

Great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We have attempted to write this review now on 3 separate occasions and this is our fourth, I would never have tried so hard but felt it important to make the effort given the wonderful experience we had in Istan.

Although the weather was not great in February / March this does not reflect poorly on the property which is nestled down a long drive on the side of the mountain with a most wonderful view of the reservoir below. We loved sitting on one of the various terraces looking down on the water below us the roofs of the traditional houses below us. A couple of neighbors make you feel comfortable that you are not completely away from civilization and you are certainly safe and secure which is important if you have dogs which we do.

The house is wonderful, really very pleasantly appointed with a great pool, that we looked on enviously but it was a bit too cold to swim but we did manage a paddle. Everything you need is there, it is very well equipped and nicely equipped which is more important. A couple of matters didn't quite go as swimmingly as we might have liked at first, a few teething problems, the owners were extremely attentive to our needs and got matters fixed as quickly as possible and very professionally. Key to me the beds, they were comfortable and the TV worked with satellite. Fears over broadband up a hill are unfounded, it worked pretty well and you could use Skype easily, a sad admission but a necessary one. Great for animals if you take them and the property is reasonably easy to shut off so they don't get out with a bit of thinking which is helpful if you have a roamer.

The location is great, a couple of km from Istan which is a great white village with a few decent restaurants and bars which is nice to visit and 15-20 from the center of Marbella and Puerto Banus. We stayed for 4 weeks and would have probably stayed longer had we have had the opportunity. I loved the orange and lemon trees around the property, you felt in another world. There is everything you need in Marbella / Puerto Banus so this is certainly a great location to be near it all but in this property you are far enough away from the madness of the coast. We'd certainly go back for several reasons, namely great location of the property, very attentive and kind owners, plenty to do on the coast and the property accepts animals. Have a great time, we did.

Whilst the villa itself is set in a secluded position on the quiet slopes of La Concha overlooking the lake of La Embalse de la Concepcion the bustling town of Marbella with its beaches and marinas is only a short drive away and it's famous Orange Square (Plaza de Naranjos) and surrounding cobbled streets in Marbella Old Town is a must for a stunning array of restaurants, artisan shops and designer boutiques.

The beautiful and vibrant marina of Puerto Banus is even closer by and offers an incredible range of top quality restaurants offering international and local cuisine. Boat and jet ski rental, fishing and scuba diving are all available in this and other nearby marinas at Marbella, Cabapino, Estepona and La Duquesa and the numerous nearby family friendly beaches offering numerous beach bars with sunbeds and parasols for relaxing and many offering a range of water sports for the active. There is a luxury beach with designer sunbeds and waiter service at Nikki Beach.

The unspoilt Pueblo Blanco (white village) of Istan, which dates back to the 16th Century, is only 6 kms away within the same UNESCO Biosphere enjoyed by the villa, and has a natural spring which, along with the Rio Verde, supplies the water for the lake which is used to supply water to Marbella and the western Costa del Sol. There are four local restaurants and three tapas bars and a range of small shops for basic provisions, including a bakers, and has a local market on Saturdays. Horse riding is available in the village for trekking the surrounding hills.

The villa enjoys private access to the lake where you can swim in perfect privacy and isolation or use our kayak to explore the length of the lake and it's secluded inlets or enjoy a peaceful day picnicing and fishing for the plentiful carp.

The area is a designated Natural Park known as the Sierra de las Nieves and it is well worth doing a Jeep or quad bike safari of the surrounding area, which are available from Puerto Banus.

The villa is central on the Costa del Sol, which is also known (deservedly) as the Costa del Golf. There are numerous top quality Golf Courses within easy reach of the property including Finca Cortesin, Los Naranjos GC , Las Brisas GC, Aloha GC, La Quinta Golf & Country Club, La Dame de Noche (Floodlit), Marbella Golf & Country Club, Rio Real GC, Guadalmina GC, Atalaya GC, El Paraiso and Los Flamingos to name but a few!!

Slightly further afield is La Cala Golf and Alhuarin Golf and the world famous Valderamma at Sotogrande is an easy drive away of about 55kms as is the excellent new La Reserva course. The new and old courses of San Roque, featuring ancient Cork Oaks, are about 60kms from the Finca, about 45 minutes drive away as is the resort and golf course of Alcadeisa.

After a strenuous day on the golf course there is nothing quite as relaxing as retreating to the peace and quiet of one of the villa's terraces and enjoying a glass of wine watching the sun set over the pool and lake.

The surrounding area is so natural and beautiful it has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere and enjoys an incredible range of spring flowers, fauna and wildlife including Golden Eagles, Ibex and wild boars.

The villa is about 2 hours drive from Granada with it's internationally renowned Alhambra Palace as well as the Sierra Nevada skiing area which enjoys good snow conditions from December to late March. It is one of the few places in the world where you can ski on piste in the morning and be water skiing from the beach in the afternoon.

Notes:
The property offers covered and open terraces for all season pleasure. The back garden was designed and installed by BBC's Groundforce team and was featured on the show's last ever broadcast. We have upgraded the pergola immediately adjoining the garden and constructed a gas BBQ and servery. A great place to enjoy partial shade and breathtaking views up the valley to the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves. As the pool is unheated it will be 'open' from 1st May to the end of September, or by prior arrangement. It is usable at other times but may not be 100% crystal clean. Air conditioning is fitted in all bedrooms and the sitting room for chilling or heating as required. If the gentle mountain breezes aren't cooling enough there are several fans throughout the house for additional comfort if needed. The house is warm during winter months but there is a working Andalucian fireplace and logs are provided. Oil filled radiators are also available for good background heat.
