Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Istan - Villa Zahara

Spacious Villa with private pool, Games room with Pool table, childrens Playroom

Beautiful Zahara de Istan is an upmarket enclave nestling below La Concha in the lovely natural Park, the Biosphere. This fantastic villa would suit discerning clients seeking peace and relaxation in a rural atmosphere but still with easy driving distance of the delights of Puerto Banus and Marbella.

The villa has everything you will need for a great holiday, the Games Room features a great Bar area, a quality Snooker Table, Dart Board, flat screen TV with English channels,, and if you have small children a separate small kiddies play room with bean bags and its own TV set into the wall.

The pool terrace is perfect for sunbathing with all day sun, and lovely patio furniture set in the shade by the large private pool.

There is dining furniture for dining Al Fresco and a gas BBQ for rustling up those steaks & burgers whilst watching the sunset.

Spain: Spain's 'sunshine coast' is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations. With an average of 320 days of blue sky annually, it is perfect as a summer holiday or as a winter destination for golfers, walkers and those wishing to pursue out -door activities. Families are particularly well catered for, with myriad attractions, restaurants and of course miles of beaches. Children are not just tolerated but welcomed by the friendly Spanish people.

Despite the march of development, the area still has the ambience of Andalucía, the most 'Spanish' of all regions and you do not have to venture far from your holiday home to encounter local ferias, fiestas and romerias - the scent of Jasmine is in the air, inexpensive wine is flowing freely- come and enjoy!

Only 10 minutes drive away is the wonderful Nueva Andalucia and Puerto Banus, overlooking three exclusive golf courses: Aloha Golf, Las Brisas and Los Naranjos and is therefore ideally located for golfing.

Internationally known as a 'jet set' play ground, Puerto Banus is where you can admire the luxurious yachts of the rich and famous or enjoy a cocktail in one of the many sophisticated bars. There is a wide variety of top class restaurants featuring cuisines from around the world. Or if your purse can stretch to it, shop until you drop in the many designer boutiques.

The famous Casino is 5 minutes walk from Puerto Banus, if you can keep up with the high rollers give it a try. Even nearer is the chic bar, La Sala popular late in the evening with the ' beautiful people'

Old Marbella is only 15 mins drive away with its pretty Plaza de los Naranjos, beautifully preserved white Moorish houses and geranium-filled balconies.

The area features many different beaches with an eclectic mix of beach bars and up-market beach clubs to suite every one's budget but be warned prices in the beach clubs of Puerto Banus are not for the faint hearted.

The area is well placed for exploring beautiful Andalucia.The famous white villages are well worth a visit and also Ronda with its breathtaking gorge and the oldest bullring in Spain, still in use!

There are many national parks just on the doorstep and from December to April you can ski in the Sierra Nevada, 2.5 hours drive. Further afield, for the more adventurous Morocco, with its souks and third world charm is only two hours away.

Reviews

Location

Nearest Airport
45 Kilometres
Malaga
Car: necessary

Situated in the Sierra de Las Nieves National Park, declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco. The village of Istan pueblo has a timeless ambience and steep, narrow streets of whitewashed houses with Arabic roof tiling, particularly in the upper district of the village, where part of a tower from the walls of the mediaeval castle still stands.The only sensible way to experience it is on foot. There are a number of restuarants and bars offering a good variety of Tapas. The village echoes night and day to the sound of water running constantly from its drinking fountains, it is the pure, unprocessed mountain variety which is much prized Just outside the village, where it cascades freely from the rocks, motorists often stop to fill their jugs and cans. There are many signed walking and cycling routes in the area, and it is a haven also for bird watchers. The air is fragrant with the smell of pine and wild thyme & rosemary.
