Our penthouse is on the second floor and has direct access from the underground garage where there is a large single parking space. At present the lift has not been switched on but we hope that this will be rectified very soon. There is an automatic garage remote to access the garage space.
There four individually designed pools, including an infinity pool, set in the beautifully landscaped gardens all around the complex and residents are free to use any one of them.
Or if you so wish you can take a 20 minute stroll around the picturesque gardens and waterfalls, locate one of the seating areas where you can rest and admire the views.
There are tennis courts in Benahavis and at Buena Vista near Paraiso Park a few minutes away. There is also a beautiful park in Benahavis and lots of little streets to explore and at least 19 restaurants for you to try out.
La Hacienda is a secure, gated development and the security gates of the complex are locked. Entry can only be accessed by a bleeper which will be sent to you on booking.
The Costa del Sol region
The Costa del Sol is the most southerly coast of Spain and boasts well over 300 days of sunshine every year. It offers something for everyone whether you are a family, a couple, just friends holidaying together or golfers. There are superb beaches to explore all along the coast, San Pedro being our nearest beach ( see photos) and the famous Nikki Beach is only 15 minutes along the Costa.
There are numerous golf courses, many are world class, in the area which has been called 'golf valley' and our apartment overlooks El Paraiso Golf and the surrounding area. The sunny all year round climate allows golfers to play through summer and winter.
The towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus are both only about 10-15 minutes drive away and you can visit the famous Puerto Banus Marina, have a meal, look at the fabulous yachts and watch out for the rich and famous. Then head along the Golden Mile to Marbella where a visit to the old town is a must. Have a drink in Plaza de los Naranjaos (Orange Square) surrounded by trees and exotic tropical plants. Alternatively explore the narrow cobbled streets with shops, art galleries, bars, bistros and restaurants where there is always a hub of activity. The towns main shopping area boasts many designer shops as well as bars and restaurants and the local Marbella market takes place every Monday. West of Puerto Banus and Marbella is San Pedro de Alcantara which is one of the really true Spanish towns. San Pedro's old town is charming with small winding streets and a central plaza which is well worth a visit. San Pedro has about 5Km of excellent beaches, a wide promanade with many chiringuitos ( Spanish restaurants which all sell delicious sea food). The sandy beach has the 'blue flag' for its clean water making it ideal for families with children. San Pedro has a local market every Thursday. You may fancy a visit to Estapona where you can walk along the sea front to the port. There is a small market at the port every Sunday which we love to explore.
Although you will always have plenty to do on the Marbella coast since it has been developed specifically for tourism there are many other places you can visit. Families can enjoy a day out at Parque Aquatica which is one of the best water parks around and is located on the outskirts of Fuengirola. It also provides a variety of entertainment to suit all the family. Take a trip to the famous town of Ronda which is about an hour away. See the bridge over the gorge and the oldest bullring in Spain. Visit Cesares, a little whitewashed town built on the hillside as you wind your way up through the stunning scenery to Ronda. Go over to Gibraltar and explore the caves dug by the military or see the monkeys. Here you can also take a boat trip from the marina to see dolphins out at sea.
The beautiful whitewashed village of Benahavis is only 5 minutes away from La Hacienda and you can get changed in the evening and choose one of the many restaurants in which to eat. The choice of restaurants is vast as there are at least 19 in the village. You can eat inside or outside even on rooftops and most of the restaurants provide you with a free drink (usually a liquor) at the end of your meal and the service is second to none. One of the popular resteraunts is Rufinos.
Benahavis is a delightful village set in the hills about 7 km from the coast and nestling in the hillside. Its narrow cobbled streets take you around the village which still keeps its original Moorish charm. It has its own 4 star hotel and public swimmimg pool which is open in the summer months. There are also tennis courts. It has a small market every Tuesday. There are a couple of small shops in Benahavis that seems to stock everything from food to light bulbs if you should run out of anything although a new Mercadona has recently opened about 2 or 3 minutes away from La Hacienda which is proving very useful..
