Penthouse in El Presidente
Penthouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Our large and luxurious penthouse apartment set on a corner plot stands in a beautiful tranquil setting. It is immaculately presented and well cared for.
The large, dual aspect large sunny terrace overlooks the main fountain and waterways of the established El Presidente complex and across the a pool to the backdrop of the mountains. The terrace is a must for sun worshippers as being dual aspect, we benefit from sun all day long, with always one area in the shade either to relax on the sun loungers or on the outdoor settee and chairs.
We chose this apartment as our second home as we love the feeling of space and light which carries on to the large private terrace which is great for entertaining with a built in BBQ area, outdoor fridge and sink, aswell as outdoor sofas and a dining area for 6.
The accommodation is fitted to an extremely high standard where we benefit from large marbled floored open plan living areas with Air Conditioning/heating, Wi/Fi, 46" flat screen TV in the lounge.
Home entertainment includes flat screen colour TV's in the lounge and a wall mounted flat screen TV in the main bedroom. We are not affected by the lack of satellite TV in southern Spain as we have installed a brand new internet provider TV system which receives the full range of UK terrestrial channels, Sky Sports 1-4 and Sky News, plus a vast range of international channels. It also provides a huge selection of free up to the minute movies, radio channels, internet and YouTube.
If you wish to bring your own entertainment we also have a DVD player in addition to an IPOD docking station. We also have free broadband Wi-Fi access.DVD, 2nd flat screen TV in the master bedroom, Bang and Olufsen TV in the second bedroom. Large full fitted dining kitchen which is superbly equipped with everything you would find in your kitchen at home including coffee machine,blender, numerous serving dishes aswell as kids crockery, beakers etc. We also have a high chair and cot for babies.
The extremely spacious lounge is tastefully decorated and is modern, uncluttered and stylish with a dining area ( comfortable seating for 6) that opens out onto the terrace and benefits from the fabulous views.
We are situated in the quietest part of the complex, but only a short walk through the peaceful grounds to any one of 5 superb pools (one heated all year round). If you fancy a game of tennis, or paddle, El Presidente has 4 courts available free for the use of guests year round. There is even a golf driving bay available to help you get your swing in shape for any of the 30 plus local courses, including the Ryder Cup venue of Valderama.
We're only 400m from the beach and walking distance to a range of beach bars and restaurants.

The Andalucia region
The attraction of this area is that it has something for everyone, catering for all types of holiday ranging from chilling out by the pool to more cultural or sporting trips. Situated between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean the area is renowned for a microclimate that produces over 300 days of sunshine a year. It is also one of the few places in Europe where you can ski in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon.
For the sports enthusiast the list is endless with year round perfect conditions for outdoor activities. There are over 30 excellent golf courses within easy reach, including the famous Valderama and San Roque. Tennis, swimming and padel are all available free at El Presidente. Walking, cycling and horse riding offer stunning views in the surrounding hills and skiing in the Sierra Nevada is just 2 hours away. Numerous blue flag beaches offer a wide variety of watersports activities, including the European Windsurfing capital at Tarifa.
The choice in locations is equally varied, from Andalucia's historic white villages and elegant cities including Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Jerez with their Moorish and Roman influences, to the buzz of Puerto Banus marina with its shops, restaurants and non stop nightlife, to the elegance of Marbella's with its fashionable relaxed atmosphere.
El presidente is located midway between the towns of Marbella and Estepona, both of which have maintained their unique Spanish feel and offer a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and some of the best beaches in the area. The inspiration for this superb development came from the design of the magnificent Alhambra Palace in Granada. We chose this apartment as our second home because of it's location in the original, established part of El Presidente, overlooking the mature sub tropical gardens. El Presidente benefits from a traffic free environment and round the clock security. In addition it is just a short 3 min walk to our own sandy beach & children's playground and Chirinquito.
If you want to leave your car and enjoy a drink in the evening you can do, as we are a short walking distance to numerous excellent restaurants and several bars. There are also local shops a short distance from the apartment where you can stock up on anything you need for your holiday.
A five minute drive will take you to the fashionable and stunning resort of Puerto Banus where the rich and famous moor their magnificent yachts. It's well worth a visit to this thriving town and a stroll around to take in some fabulous sights and window shop in the designer boutiques. El Corte Ingles, the famous spanish department store, has a very large shop here with a very upmarket supermarket located in the basement. There are an abundance of bars and restaurants around the port - not all of which break the bank!
For those of you who prefer not to drive,within the immediate vicinity of the El Presidente, you are spoilt for choice with restaurants - the range is endless; from small local Bodegas and Tapas bars to excellent Italian, Chinese, Indian and Bistro restaurants serving modern, international cuisine in stylish surroundings. Nightlife is on hand with the casinos and nightclubs and piano bars of Puerto Banus only 10 minutes away.
A short drive inland is the picturesque hill village of Benahavis with its reputation for splendid restaurants at very reasonable prices and is the home to some of our favourite restaurants.
There are plenty of family activities including theme parks, water parks and safari parks and dolphin watching.

"this penthouse is fantastic, well appointed and great location"
We spent a week at El Presidente and it was fabulous. The apartment is spacious, well designed with the best equipped kitchen I have ever seen. There is a range of pools to relax at and non of them were busy or overcrowded which was fantastic for relaxing.
There are plenty of really good places to eat put all within walking distance . It is a superb location to visit a number of interesting places and easy to get to from the airport. We flew into Gibraltar and it was really easy to get to with half an hour.
Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning.

"Lovely apartment in a beautifully kept complex."
We loved this large, stylish penthouse apartment. It was very well equipped and the grounds of the complex were beautifully maintained. Just a few minutes to San Pedro Alcantara with its lovely Paseo Maritimo and great restaurant on the beach, open even in February. From there it's a lovely walk to Peurto Banus. There are also lots of good restaurants within walking distance of the apartment.

"Beautiful apartment...great location...this is a must!!! We'll be back!!"
Just came back from a fantastic 2 weeks at El Presidente. This large apartment is beautiful, modern, stylish, comfortable with everything you need for a great holiday. This really feels like home from home, it is fully equiped & large & airy. A lovely penthouse location overlooking one of the 5 pools! Great sized terrace with sunbeds, comfortable outdoor patio furniture, 6 seater table & chairs & 2 BBQs! It was very hot whilst we were there but on the terrace you got the breeze which made it nice to sunbathe. We would definately recommend spending time here, there are some really lovely restaurants & bars close by, it's not far to Marbella/Peurto Banus. There's a new beachbar that has just opened which has great food & a spa!! It wasa great place to have a relaxing holiday! Thanks!

"Great apartment - lovely complex"
We had a great short break. The apartment is great - beautifully furnished and fantastic large terrace. The complex is really nice and its only a short walk to beachbars, or inland restaurants. We've booked to come back - can't wait.
