Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Saladillo Benamara - Casa Casquet

Traditional beach-side Andalucian villa with pool, 4 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8

Casa Casquet is a quaint 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa sleeping 7/8. All rooms and accommodation are on ground level. The living room, dining room and master bedroom are air conditioned to help with the summer heat, and a log burning stove provides a warm focus during winter months. The fully fitted kitchen includes a dishwasher, and a washing machine is to be found in the adjoining utility room. TV, CD, DVD and iPod players are provided.

Outside, the villa is surrounded by mature hedges creating a private and secure environment. The main outdoor area faces south, and it is here you can enjoy outdoor living at it's best, whether it is in (or lounging beside) the pool, or escaping to the shade of the patio for lunch or a siesta. A BBQ area is situated at the side of the villa.

This property is ideally situated for those who enjoy a beach-side location in a comparatively quiet area.

This area is also known as the 'Costa del Golf', and with good reason. There are numerous courses within very easy reach including some of the best in Europe - Finca Cortesin and Valderrama, as well as many offering a less stern test.

El Saladillo is a good base from which to sight-see, with a number of the Pueblos Blancos within a short commute.

Charming well equipped Villa in great location with lovely well kept gardens and fantastic pool.

  • 4 of 5

Charming well equipped Villa in great location with lovely well kept gardens and fantastic pool.

Great for outdoor dinning with plenty of outdoor furniture, great bbc area. Loads of sun loungers.

Very close to great beach with good facilities including beach restaurants/bars.The villa was ideal for our party of two families of 4 adults and two kids. Loads to do & and eat within a 15 to 20 min walk in the evenings. Estepona, Puerto Banus, Marbella all close by by car. Golfers dream, played a good & fair priced 9 hole in Benehavis. Any problems with the villa were sorted out rapido thanks to Iain & Francisso.

Would thoroughly recommend this Villa and location. We had a fantastic holiday.

Thanks Iain.

Three girls had a great relaxing week away. Fabulous villa, very neat & well equipped, with comfy beds. Lovely garden with a fabulous big pool. Lovely area outside for sitting & eating. Sea very near & wonderful for swimming in. Shops within walking distance & if you like fresh orange juice & coissants for breakfast it's just round the corner. The owners were very helpful & the local agent very attentive. All in all we had a Fabulous time and would love to go back. Sue , Pop & Katrina.

Great holiday in a great place

  • 5 of 5

We spent a really great holiday in Casa Casquet. Its a very clean and neat ville with a wonderful big swimming pool. The contact with Ian, the owner, was always friendly and nearby the house, Francicso, a very nice and helpful guy, takes care of everything. The beach is only a 100 meter walk and next to the ville there are supermarkets, Bars and restaurants. The description of the ville was matching, although the fotos don´t show entirely how lovely the place is. We totally recommand the ville and we´re planing to spend another holiday there because we got everything we expected and even more.

A great holiday for the Fisher family

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 6 adults and 3 children ages 1,2 3,we found the villa ideal especially being on one level.It was clean and well kept,we appreciated you supplying all our requirements for our grandchildren ie travel cots,high chair.

The outside space was ideal ,both the children and adults enjoyed the pool and making use of the BBQ area.

The weather was fantastic throughout our stay (24 May-3rd June)Wish we had booked for 2 weeks.

Owner's Response: Hi Sylvie Many thanks for your review, I'm delighted you had a good holiday. I don't speak French well, so I hope I've translated your comments properly! I'm going out later this month and I will certainly look into the matter of the cutlery - I was at the villa myself in July and it was all fine but it is a fact that sometimes things need to be replaced, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'm in the process of replacing one of the water heaters, which you're right, was getting a bit old. The work will be completed by the end of September. Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you back again in future. Regards Iain

Casa Casquet is a delightful private villa, set 150 metres along a quiet lane from the unspoiled sandy beach of Saladillo. The residential area of El Saladillo is one of the longest established on the coast, and as a result is a peaceful haven not blighted by high rise buildings or plagued with crowds.

El Saladillo is roughly 10 minutes drive from Estepona (West) and 15 minutes from Marbella (East), and is approximately 45 minutes by car from the nearest airport at Malaga.

The villa is ideally situated for anyone who enjoys a lazy beach holiday, golf (there are any number of tremendous courses locally including Finca Cortesin home of the Volvo World Matchplay and Valderrama of Ryder Cup fame), excellent restaurants (including some great chiringuito's a short walk along the beach), tennis, horse riding, water-sports, dolphin & whale watching, Selwo 'safari', swimming (the villa has it's own heated pool), or as a base to explore the region including the famous Pueblos Blancos.

Golf: Very convenient to a great selection of local golf courses, including:

Los Flamingos - ranked GOOD by Golfbreaks.com

Finca Cortesin - ranked EXCELLENT, #10 in Spain, by Golfbreaks.com

Marbella Club - ranked VERY GOOD by Golfbreaks.com

La Reserva - ranked VERY GOOD, #7 in Spain by Golfbreaks.com

Valderrama - ranked EXCELLENT, #2 in Spain by Golfbreaks.com

Sotogrande - ranked VERY GOOD, #3 in Spain by Golfbreaks.com

.....and many more.
