Stunning in every respect. Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished a two-week stay at Villa el Soto in celebration of our tenth anniversary. We had a total of 32 people pass through for short stays with us during that time and it was lovely to be able to share such a beautiful house with so many family and friends. The experience was unforgettable.

First let us talk about the house: It is stunning. The views are extraordinary (sunrises from the pool deck were epic). The grounds are immaculate and the rooms all superb. The upstairs Master Suite that we enjoyed is absolutely decadent. It's hard not to look at the house's website, with its videos and photos, and think, "I wonder if it's going to be as nice as it looks here?" Let us tell you -- it's even better. There is no way that the videos and gallery photos can do justice to recreating the feeling you have when you walk in and around this property for the first time. The neighborhood is very secure and quiet, and convenient to the main road up and down the coast.

The Owner: Hughes was, throughout our planning process, always very responsive, helpful and nice. Very easy to deal with, and very generous to share this special place through HomeAway.

The Staff, Food and Service: What gives Villa el Soto its heart and soul is the staff. Mariam, Pilar, Julia, Candi and Beatrice attend to your every need. They are sweet, funny and kind, and attend to every detail. You do not need to worry about restaurants in the area -- you won't need them. Our recommendation to you would be to do what we did: We just turned all the menu planning competely over to them; they did the shopping, created the menus, and had three meals a day on the table that were beautifully presented, expertly prepared, and very, very delicious. These are not just "cooks" ... the level of the cuisine is far, far superior to that. All we had to do was give them a head count for each meal the day before, and they took care of the rest. The empty plates going back to the kitchen was testimony enough to the quality of the meals.

The area: As we mentioned, it's close to the main road going up and down the coast. Tarifa (for ferries to Morocco) is 45 mins to the south, Malaga is about 1 hour 15 mins to the north. There are a couple of small commercial centers within a kilometer or so, with a nice bottle shop (Anglo Wines, run by a delightful British woman named Emma), two large supermarkets, and several nice golf courses.

A wonderfully secluded villa full of character overlooking the detroit of Gibraltar with views of the north african cost.

Une villa super agréable

  • 5 of 5

J'ai passé quelques jours avec des amis golfeurs dans cette très belle villa. La première chose qui impressionne est la vue sur la mer et sur la forêt de chênes liège. Le style de la villa est sobre et lumineux. Ma chambre était très confortable avec une très bonne literie, la salle de bain est spacieuse et on s'attarde très facilement sous la douche. Si la décoration est minimale par contre le service est très soigné. Le personnel est vraiment au petits soins pour les résidents. La table est bonne (j'ai eu un dessert à base de mousse de mangues et de kiwis vraiment top). L'endroit invite au farniente que ce soit sur une des terrasses ou à côté du feu de bois dans le salon. Un endroit à recommander sans réserve pour un séjour en famille et avec des amis.

Groupe exclusif d'amis et chouchoutés

  • 5 of 5

Localisation spécialement proche de tous les terrains de golf les meilleurs de la Costa del Sol et à côté de l'autoroute. Vue imprenable sur la mer , la côte marocaine, le rocher de Gibraltar. Chambres très spacieuses. Séjour luxueux, service super attentionné du personnel et toujours aux petits soins pour notre groupe. Petit déjeuner avec TOUT, oeufs , jamon , confitures locales , café nespresso et thés ,tapas à 14 voire 15 heures en fonction de nos horaires. Seul petit bémol , un chauffage parfois tardif vu la température extérieure....mais les apéros et cava compensaient largement.
