Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Benahavis - 'IDLE HOUR II'

2 double en suite bedrooms, shared pool (quiet), a/c, heating, large terrace

This stunning modern luxury town house is located in a small development, La Heredia De Monte Mayor, part of the 5 star Monte Mayor Golf & Country Club located in the hills (near Benahavis) and only a 15 minute drive from the coast. The house features 2 large double en suite bedrooms (can be converted to 4 singles) with great views; modern marble bathrooms with powerful showers. The spacious, beautifully decorated living room with two double French windows opening onto a large private terrace, has a quality sofa bed, multi-channel TV, DVD, stereo. Separate dining room for six off a high quality, fully equipped (Bosch) kitchen. The terrace has the most spectacular uninterrupted views to the coast (often including N. Africa) and is therefore well equipped for spending your days relaxing and sunbathing. Gas BBQ, dining table & outside lounge suite plus roll-out sun blind. 4 houses away is a delightful garden sunbathing area and swimming pool - this area cannot be heard from the house

Directly next to Monte Mayor Golf and Country Club is the Marbella Club golf course, which has its own riding stables. These are used for the national showjumping championships and they offer classes and hacking in the mountains.

A few minutes drive away is the village of Benahavis. This is famous for its wide selection of tapas bars and restaurants, in particular the Amanhavis restaurant, which provides a very special evening out.

As well as visiting places like Rhonda, Tarifa, Gibraltar, or the nearby Sierra De Las Nieves - Reserva de las Biosfera - an unspoilt protected nature reserve for walkers and bird lovers, why not take a ferry across to Tangiers (Morocco, Africa) for the day from nearby Algeciras.

Idle Hour II @ Monte Mayot

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second trip to Idle Hour II at Monte Mayor, having first spent our honeymoon there in June 2012

We had a wonderful time again. The villa is lovely and spacious and extremely well-equipped. We took particular advantage of the terrace with spectacular views across the valley and the bbq as the local Mercadona supermarket sells the most delicious ribs and fresh prawns at very reasonable prices.

A car is essential for this holiday, but it gives access to wonderful places to visit, such as Ronda and Gibraltar (both just over an hour away)

We were spoilt for choice of wonderful restaurants to visit - Benahavis, Estepona, Marbella - all provide a wide array to suit every taste.

We are already planning a trip next year, this time with friends.

We highly recommend this villa as a holiday destination.

A special place to stay

  • 4 of 5

My three children and I had the most wonderful week staying in this villa. Set up in the hills it has the most beautiful views, and a feeling of having really escaped. We liked having other villas around us, but it was very peaceful, and felt as if you miles from anywhere.

The nearby swimming pool was heavenly, and a great way of escaping the heat. We had such lovely happy evenings on the balcony, eating, drinking, reading, chatting and watching the sunset, the moon and the stars.

The villa itself was spacious, clean and in excellent order. It felt very homely, and the owner had given us extremely helpful and clear tips on how to use everything, how to navigate there from the airport, and how to find the nicest beaches and bars.

The beaches had a feel of the caribbean! And the bars too. Plenty for children to do, plenty of opportunities for adults to relax.

We would love to go back!

Fantastic place to stay with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in very peaceful location surrounded by mountains but with a fantastic view of the sea - cocktails on the balcony to enjoy the sunset are not to be missed! Excellent facilities, very spacious inside with good air conditioning when needed, plus power shower and kingsize beds, and both bedrooms are ensuite. The Marbella Club is only 2 miles away and the food and service are great - but car definitely needed for this location. Great places to visit are Benhavis and the Heaven Bar - wondefrul! And if you like sport, tennis courts are only a mile away. We would go back anytime - Linda and Barry

Splendid villa in a gorgeous environment on the Costa del Sol mountains, close to Benahavis and not far from Marbella.

Very classy resort. We enjoyed specially the magnificient views from the terrace.

The property was very clean and well maintained. We would recommend this villa to anyone.

15 jours de bonheur en Andalousie

  • 5 of 5

Que dire de ces 15 jours passés en Andalousie et particulièrement à la Heredia de Monte Mayor. Proche de tout sans subir la forte fréquentation de Marbella, cette maison nous a permis de vraiment nous reposer. Au coeur d'un village récent de style andalous, tout participe à un vrai bien être que la distance jusqu'à la côte ne vient pas du tout abîmer. La maison nous a surprise par la qualité de son équipement. On y vit comme à la maison. Je ne peux que vous recommander cette demeure et la gentillesse de sa propriétaire anglaise. Nous pouvons dire que nous y reviendrons... Quant à la piscine d'eau salée, elle vous tend les bras à 30 mètres de la maison. La résidence étant trés calme, la disponibilité de la piscine est quasi permanente.

Les délicieux restaurants et occaions de sortie ne manquent pas à seulement quelques kilomètres, que ce soit sur Benahavis (beaucoup de charme pour un dîner) ou Estepona, sans parler de Marbella et de Puerto Banus.

Nous avons vécu 15 jours de rêve...

Jean Paul et Isa.
