                                  Great villa in quiet area

                                  5 of 5
                                  We stayed a week in this villa that has beautiful views of the mountains and coastal area. It is located in a quiet residential area a 15 minute drive from Marbella centre and is the perfect base for a family or 2-3 couples. Ash who is the contact person provided excellent service and answered all questions we had. We can certainly recommend this villa even though everything isn't brand new - it has all the facilities you need to have a comfortable holiday. Furthermore The area itself has an abundance of attractions and restaurants and a great climate - in other words a great place to spend a holiday.

                                  Superb accommodation in a quiet area with great views.

                                  We had an excellent holiday in Marbella. The apartment was clean, tidy, spacious and had everything we needed. The outdoor space was perfect giving options to sit in the shade at the hottest parts of the day and out in the sun on the roof terrace when it was not just so hot. The communal pool was brilliant with plenty of sun loungers available and lots of space to cool down in the water. Elviria close by is a great centre. It has several supermarkets, bars, restaurants and cafés. We'd recommend Rosmarinos! The beach is nearby too. Marbella old town, particularly Orange Square, is a must with quaint cafés and an abundance of great shops for all the souvenirs you'll need! A superb holiday and great place to relax in the sun.

                                  It was where we were told it would be, more luxurious than we had anticipated (the owner has just repainted it all) and the staff were more supportive than we have seen elsewhere. Sorry for setting off the burglar alarm on arrival: entirely our fault, as it's a very easy system. Huge garden and a pristine set of new sun loungers by the pool. We'd love to come back in summer.
