A rental that met all our expectation...and more

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped. The overall impression is one of spaciousness and taste. The 2 patios provided wonderful views down to the coast and to Gibraltar and beyond. Unfortunately for several days it was too cool and windy for us to take advantage of them for sitting out and relaxing. We found its location up in the hills between Marbella and Estepona to be ideal for visiting different resorts and hill villages.

We appreciated the prompt attention of the owners to our questions.

In summary, we recommend it most highly. We had an extremely comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Fantastic apartment with incredible views from the terraces!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. The apartment is lovely and the complex has some great pools - we went swimming every day and enjoyed relaxing on the terrace watching the sunset at night. Benahavis is only a short drive away. We visited some very nice restaurants there and also did quite a lot of cooking ourselves at the apartment as the kitchen was fully equipped and the setting on the terrace was perfect for some memorable mealtimes together. Hope to go back another time!! Thank you!

Immaculate retreat

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at this imaculately presented apartment. Situated on the top floor the balconies are perfect for relaxing in the evening breeze and stargazing.

The apartment is very well furnised with great personal finishing touches.

Secluded location, conveniently placed to reach Benahavis in the mountains or easy access to the beaches on the coast.

There is a large swimming pool which is kept as you would expect a stone throw away. A very relaxing location indeed.

A great retreat away from any crowds. (you will need a car)

Wonderful apartment, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this apartment was one of the most stylish, comfortable and clean apartments we have ever stayed in and we really didn't want to come home. We loved everything about it to the quality furnishings, 2 large terraces, the wonderful location and the kitchen stocked with everything you could possibly need and more. We both love cooking and have never rented anywhere with a better equipped kitchen. We especially loved the Mercadona supermarket at the bottom of the hill which stocked everything at such great prices and had an amazing fish and meat counter. I also loved the cosmetics there, which were so cheap. Try the sea bream (dorada) and peel and eat prawns. The best restaurant we visited was Cabana Nagueles in Marbella, The steak was amazing but they serve fish too. Vera was a delight to deal with, from the initial booking to our return home and Maggie who manages the apartment was also lovely. We cannot wait to return to this little piece of paradise and thank Vera and Ernst for our stay in their wonderful home. Marcia and Kevin.

Wonderful, relaxing holiday at this apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely luxury apartment. 2 large terraces to enjoy breakfast in the morning on one and move round for drinks on the other later in the evening and to watch the sunset was wonderful. Very quiet location although this may have been due to the fact that most of the apartment complex was unoccupied when we were there. This is also proably the reason why the pool closest to the apartment was out of action due to a broken pump which was going to be fixed the day after our arrival but had still not been done when we left. This did not detract too much from the holiday as there was another pool relatively close by to use. Easy to book the apartment and the owners were very efficient. Provided us with lots of useful information before we went and there is a book in the apartment full of ideas and places to eat from previous visitors. Good location for the restaurants in Benahavis. Go on a Sunday evening when the night fair is open and all the locals are out. However, go early and book a table and return later to eat when you have finished walking around. You will need a car to get to the apartment and get around in general. We visited Puerto Banus (eat in Tangos, expensive but worth it), Marbella and San Pedro (try Da Brunos for eating and Heaven Beach bar to relax with a drink on the weekend). We would definitely return.

Just 15 Minutes west of glamorous Marbella on the Costa del Sol, La Hacienda del Señorio de Cifuentes is set within 100,000 sq mtrs of unspoilt green belt with easy access to 14 golf courses including the famous Los Flamingos, La Quinta and Atalaya. The stylish harbour of Puerto Banus with great shopping, dining and night life is only 10 min away. 5 min up the mountains is the picturesque village of Benahavis with its wide choice of excellent restaurants. Relax on nearby San Pedro's beaches and promenade. Only 1 hour away is the exciting water park in Fuengirola for people of all ages. Visit the beautiful historic town of Ronda and the famous white villages in the mountains. Gibraltar with its Barbary Apes at the top of the Rock is worth a visit. Estepona is nearby with SELWO Adventure Park.

For watersport fanatics the wind and kite surfing Mecca of Tarifa is less than 1 hr drive.

Historical cities such as Granada, Cordoba and Seville all make for very enjoyable days out.

Other Activities: animal parks, caving, bird watching, paddel, whale and dolphin watching, Kite surfing, shopping, excursions, quad biking

Golf: Winston Chuchill once said: 'Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into a even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.' Nevertheless, golf is a sport that has become indispensable and helped make the Costa del Sol (or Costa del Golf as it is commonly known) famous as a Golf destination. Our Penthouse is located in the immediate vicinity of the most popular golf courses on the Costa del Sol, if not Europe. The development is directly above El Paraiso and Atalaya. Los Flamingos, La Quinta, La Alqueria, Las Brisas, Marbella Club, Los Arqueros, just to name a few, are just a short drive away. The sunny climate ensures that Golf can be played all year round.

Ski: Generally regarded as Spain's top ski resort, Sierra Nevada is about 2 1/2 hours drive away. The resort offers the best of both worlds - sunshine and snow, for skiers and snowboarders. With the highest lifts and ski slopes above 2500m Sierra Nevada ski area is snow sure. Over 25 snow cannons ensure artificial Sierra Nevada snow making covers 30km of ski trails, which equates to around 35 of the ski slopes.The area was declared a Biospherical Reserve by UNESCO in 1986. Ski season is normally from 1st December until the end of April.
