Manilva is the southernmost village in Europe, flanked on one side by terraced vineyards and the other by a 25km stretch of panoramic coastline.

The stunning Duquesa Port has many bars, restaurants and shops.

Manilva is renowned for its excellent restaurants, 'bodegas' and superb wine.

Just 30 min from shops, entertainment & night life in Marbella with Puerto Banus en route. Gibraltar is 20 min away.

Ski : This property is convenient to the ski slopes at the magical Sierra Nevada.

This mountain range also includes the Sierra Nevada National Park, with camping and many other activity facilities available here.

Golf : One of Europe's most exclusive resorts, The San Roque Club lies amidst acres of secluded rolling countryside on the tip of the Iberian Peninsula, looking across the Strait of Gibraltar to Africa. Serenely distant from the crowded Costa del Sol, yet minutes away from Marbella, San Roque boasts two championship courses and The Seve Ballesteros Natural Golf School. These are complemented by an equestrian center.

Valderrama is a 6356 meters par 71 with no hole of less than championship quality but it can be fully enjoyed by players of all handicaps, thanks to the genius of Robert Trent Jones, Senior, whom many consider the leading golf architect of his day.

Opened in 1964, Sotogrande has become known as one of the finest golf courses in Europe. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sotogrande was his first foray onto the continent. The course has very little rough, but there are plenty of bunkers and water hazards to make Sotogrande a challenging course for all levels of golfer. Finca Cortesin is also only a short drive away

About Elaina Fitzgerald

We are a family of 5 with a very busy toddler. We usually travel with my mother so a multi generational holiday is our choice and Duquesa and the Costa Del Sol offers a wonderful family break always.

The kids love it - the beaches, the pools, the play area, the port and of course the sunshine ! We don't golf too much as we love to chill on our holidays.

We are hoteliers in Ireland so ease of travel and equipping our house with the best amenities to deliver a wonderful family experience are critical to us.

We don't travel too much in the busy summer tourism period at home so that is why we make our house available to tourists seeking the perfect getaway !

Elaina Fitzgerald purchased this house in 2006

Really great Holiday base

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for nearly two weeks for our main holidays this year. Have to say in our experience it is one of the nicest houses we have ever booked and the area is wonderful. Its about an hour from Malaga airport and is situated in a main resort with an attached golf club. House to say the least is very spacious and we were still discovering it near the end of the holiday. It had a number of very nice verandas and great views. House was very clean and we were met by the local contact who took us to the house and showed all the mod cons. Less than a 3-4 min ute drive to beach are and loads of wonderfuls bards and restaurants in the area. Really quite and good resort facilities with three different pools.

Owner is great to deal with and very helpful in all ways. Will return, great holiday thank you.

Winter Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We used this house for the first time this winter and cannot wait to return.

We already knew the area and house location so were not disapointed with the area or location. The facilities are first class and very well maintained , as we stayed for nearly 4 months we had a few minor problems which were sorted out very quickly by the back up staff with the full suport of the owners.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone (But not when we want to rent)

We know the area very well and play a lot of golf and eat out most of the time, the Duquesa district is well served with golf clubs (10 within 15 minutes ) and an incredible variety of restaurents from traditional Spanish to English fish and chips via French , Italian, Chinese etc.

We like this property so much we have already booked for the coming winter.

We also like Jazz music and go to sessions in Marbella and Gibralter which take place every week, there are of course the usual pop type and flamenco gigs.

Very modern and spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

3 couples in our early 30's took off for a quick week in La Duquesa, and what a lovely place it is!

We flew into Gibraltar, which was pretty cheap with easyjet, and only half an hour's drive away. The guy with the keys met us at the bottom of the hill in the resort, so finding the villa was very easy.

The villa itself is superb. Decorated to a very high, modern standard, we were all instantly impressed. The kitchen was equiped with everything you might need, the beds all had comfy memoryfoam matresses and the patio is big enough to follow the sun around all day.

We were fortunate that the complex was very quiet, so we practically had the pool to ourselves everyday. And the BBQ makes a relaxing evening after a hard day of tanning!

La Duquesa is also very charming. The marina has some great restaurants and a few bars offering happy hour. We would recommend the Argentinian Steakhouse up the steps. The Chinese and Indian were also pretty good. The days that we spent on the beach were very relaxed and the paella in the beach bar is perfect to share for lunch.

All in all, a great holiday. Would definitely recommend this villa and would stay here again myself. Many thanks to Elaina!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house in late August and had a great experience. We are a couple from London and stayed with our 8-month old baby, grandparents and 2 aunts. We were very comfortable in the house which was big enough for all of us. During the day we relaxed by the pool or stayed at the house with the baby. There is a big terrace which gets shade so you can eat lunch outside at a big dining table and a baby can play without getting too hot or sunburnt. There was a great breeze which made it really lovely.

There were 2 pools near the house - the nearest one was a bit small but there is a bigger one across the street large enough for swimming laps. The neighbors in the community are lovely with many small children which was fun for our baby - we were even invited to a neighbor's birthday party.

A few days we went exploring the surroundings, heading to Granada, Ronda, some beaches west of Tarifa and Casares.

For food we really enjoyed Terraza in Casares and on the beach between the port in Duquesa and the village of Castillo there was a great little fish shack. The port itself also had a nice Italian restaraunt whose name I'm forgetting (something like Parapiros) that was very good but a bit pricey. Also an amazing gelato place in the port.

The only thing to be aware of with the house is that it's far from the beach, and the beach in Duquesa is pretty rocky and freezing cold. There were very few people in the sea when we were there. It didn't matter much for us as beach with a baby is a nightmare, but something to be aware of if you're looking for a pure beach holiday.

In all, we found the house spacious and so comfortable for a relaxing family holiday!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I don't think the pictures do the place justice. Furnishings and decor are top notch, great garden, nice patio and good beds. A good starting point.

The small pool nearby was perfect for us and we were told that the rest of the development, while they have access, don't really know about it so it was never crowded.

There was a slight problem with the lock on the front door and this was sorted out the next day.

In Duquesa I'd reccomend either of the Pizza Restaurants on the upper level, La Traviata and there's a retaurant beside the 19th holse which is very nice but the name escapes me. We also had Indian takeaway from the restaurant on the upper level and a Chinese takeaway, both were nice although be aware that the Chinese likes to use chillies extensively! I'd give the Mexican a miss though, it wasn't up to much.

We had a great time and would go back tomorrow.

Very good option!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very child safe and there is room to breath for everyone(we were 6 adults + 2 children). A car is a must thing, the area is peaceful and the views are nice. Everything in the house was in order and all the things worked like they should.

Seville and Granada are both just a 3 hour drive away.

Due west is the delightful town of Estepona with its attractive old town, wonderful

beaches and intriguing old-fashioned shops.

Close to San Roque, Valderama and Sotogrande and other Championship Golf
