Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Benahavís - Bella Vista Apartment

2 bedroom apartment in New Golf Valley, Costa del Sol

Situated between Marbella and Benahavis and within 6 mins of the coast, La Hacienda del Senorio de Cifuentes is a beautiful development with exceptional views of the Med and Mountains.

Beautiful lounge and dining areas with patio doors leading out to the huge terraces. A fully fitted kitchen with all appliances and equipped with everything you require during your stay. Marble floors throughout with air conditioning for the summer and underfloor heating for cooler months. The bedrooms are equally as appealing with beautiful en suite bathrooms. There are four pools within the landscaped gardens including an infinity pool with excellent views of the coast.

Set within 100,000sq m of unspoilt rural Spanish green belt with easy access to the entire new golf valley.

Spacious, architect designed luxury apartments in a first floor location with stunning south facing views from the terrace. The apartment benefits from superb fittings, decorations and amenities in a tranquil unspoilt location near natural parks and lakes with stunning views of the Med, La Concha mountain and Gibraltar.

The apartment is light, spacious and furnished to a very high standard with a fully equipped kitchen, including ceramic hob, washing machine, dishwasher, and microwave oven. It is fully air-conditioned for the hot summer months. The lounge area consists of satellite 37” plasma TV and DVD player (can also play CD's). Comfortable 3+2 (leather) sofas and ambient lighting and a dining area seating up to 6 people. Direct access to the terrace with sun loungers, outdoor seating for 4 people, dining table and breathtaking views! Exterior features include secure gated entry, 24 hour security & a private garage. Absolutely no smoking in the apartments please - but smoking is allowed on the terrace.

Surrounding Area: The sophisticated resort of Marbella is around 15 min drive away where you can enjoy a fantastic shopping area, the famous Orange Square and beautiful beaches. San Pedro is a very Spanish town full of the taste of Spain and is only 5 mins drive away. The apartment is in the muncipality of Benahavis - one of the traditional white villages where you will find over 40 excellent restaurants. Gibraltar is 40 mins away and worth a visit especially for tax- free shopping. There's lots to do and see in the surrounding area - golf courses, beaches, wind surfing and tennis. Jerez (1 ½ hours away) is famous for its sherry and Flamenco dancing, is well worth a visit as is the stunning historic town of Ronda - a 44 km drive from the apartment.

Lovely apartment and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I walked into the apartment I loved it. Well presented, clean, modern and has everything you could need. The view from the balcony was fantastic and what a bonus being able to see the sea, it certainly makes it that more special. The layout and size of the apartment make it feel very spacious and was just perfect for a family of 4 with 2 children. I honestly couldn't fault any of it. The infinity pool is the closest pool out of the 4 to this apartment, it was definitely the best out of the 4 pools! We loved it, and the grounds are so well maintained. Location wise, I couldn't have chosen better, 3 min drive to a great supermarket, and just a 10/15min drive to Marbella or Puerto Banus, close enough, but just far enough away from all the hussle and bussle too! Great restaurants close by and Benahavis Village is a must for restaurants as is a visit to Ronda which only took us 1hr by car- wow, so worth a visit!! We enjoyed every minute of our stay, thank you so much for the use of your lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review Jon - we are delighted that you and your family enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the development and the wonderful infinity pool. The great thing about the apartment is that you can escape the busy coast but are still only 5-10 minutes away from it. An ideal balance. We hope to welcome you back again one day.

Fab Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks here from 25/6 to 9/7 with my husband and 9 yr old son. The apartment is stunning, it has everything you would need and there are no words to describe the view, absolutely breathtaking. The apartment has been beautifully decorated and is a real home from home.The pools are excellent, very clean and not freezing!! The apartment is just a short 10 minute drive to Benahavis and there are plenty of golf courses within a few minutes drive. Isobel and Kenny, the owners, are very friendly and will do anything to improve your stay. Did not want to leave, would have stayed longer!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we are so pleased that you enjoyed our apartment and the surrounding area as much as we do. The beauty of our development is that you can enjoy the stunning views, beautiful pools and gardens and yet you are only minutes away from all types of activities. Thank you also for coming to El Paraiso Country Club and supporting our new venture. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bella Vista again.

A Great Week In May

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at La Hacienda for a week in May, this year, 2011. What a pleasure it was to wake up every morning to the wonderful views of the Meditteranean from the large terrace. La Hacienda proved to be the perfect base for a week of exploring the coastline and stunning countryside of Andalucia, relaxing by the well-maintained infinity pool in the afternoon and eating out in the beautiful nearby village of Benahavis in the evening. Benahavis is just 10 minutes by car while the busier, more flashy resorts of Puerto Banus and Marbella are less than 30 minutes drive. The apartment was well-equipped and very comfortable with a fantastically spacious en-suite bathroom off the main bedroom and a great second bathroom/shower room next to the twin room. All-in-all a great place to stay.

Beautiful Behavis

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 kids and I all had a great time at Benahavis. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The terrace was perfect for sunbathing, alfresco dining and also for a quiet drink to soak up the views. The pools were ideal and the view from the infinity pool was breathtaking. Despite being secluded, the apartments were within easy reach of all amenities and an ideal place for golfing or setting out to see some of real Spain, with main roads within easy reach. Gibraltar was reached in no time at all on the one cloudy day we had. Overall, an excellent holiday in an unspoilt part of the Costa del Sol. We'll be back.

La Hacienda de Senorio de Cifuentes complex is situated between Marbella and the picturesque village of Benahavis. It is surrounded by excellent restaurants, traditional tapas bars, and fantastic views. It is only 35 minutes from Malaga airport and just 10 minutes from the stylish harbour of Puerto Banus and the town of Marbella, both great for shopping, dining out and site seeing. The village itself still has its original Moorish layout, pretty houses, cobbled streets and a superb selection of restaurants. Other local attractions include local walks through the beautiful hills and mountains, San Pedro, with its delightful shops and excellent market on Thursday's. Endless miles of sandy beaches, the nearest being a 5 mins drive away.

Golf is one of the key attractions for this development. The Costa del Sol has the perfect climate all year round, offering some of the greatest golf courses in Europe. There is a huge choice of courses within a short distance of La Hacienda del Senorio de Cifuentes, the development itself being adjacent to Atalaya, La Alquería and El Paraíso Golf courses and near Marbella Club, Los Flamingos, La Quinta, Los Arqueros and La Zagaleta. If you are planning a golfing break, our apartment really is the perfect base for all the surrounding Golf courses. For further information on local golf courses, please do not hesitate to enquire.

Ski: Sierra Nevada is only 2 hours away from Benahavis and is well worth a visit - even if you don't ski!
