It is built on 3 levels, with ground floor being in the middle, with lounge, dining area and kitchen.

The spacious Master bedroom features picture windows on 2 sides and a large built in window seat over looking the pool and the hills beyond. It has a large flat screen T.V and a full bathroom in marble with twin sinks.

Bedroom 2 also has a lovely window seat and shares a full bathroom with bedroom 3.

Bedroom 4 is located in the basement and is a spacious room. It has no natural light, but has it own shower room. There is plenty of room for a fold down bed or cot if required.

Further details outdoors

The private swimming pool area is a good size and is adjacent to the shady terrace, next to the lounge which has panoramic windows which open very wide to maximise the feeling of freedom which this lovely property gives you.

The integal garage is on basement level and opens onto the Games Room.

Further details

Please be advised if travelling with children that extreme caution should be observed around the pool area as it is narrow at the back and small children should be supervised at all times as the pool is directly accessible from the lounge. Also there is a flight of steps down to the front door.

The Andalucia region

Spain's 'sunshine coast' is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations. With an average of 320 days of blue sky annually, it is perfect as a summer holiday or as a winter destination for golfers, walkers and those wishing to pursue out -door activities. Families are particularly well catered for, with myriad attractions, restaurants and of course miles of beaches. Children are not just tolerated but welcomed by the friendly Spanish people.

Despite the march of development, the area still has the ambience of Andalucía, the most 'Spanish' of all regions and you do not have to venture far from your holiday home to encounter local ferias, fiestas and romerias - the scent of Jasmine is in the air, inexpensive wine is flowing freely- come and enjoy!


Situated in the Sierra de Las Nieves National Park, declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco. The village of Istan pueblo has a timeless ambience and steep, narrow streets of whitewashed houses with Arabic roof tiling, particularly in the upper district of the village, where part of a tower from the walls of the mediaeval castle still stands.The only sensible way to experience it is on foot. There are a number of restuarants and bars offering a good variety of Tapas. The village echoes night and day to the sound of water running constantly from its drinking fountains, it is the pure, unprocessed mountain variety which is much prized Just outside the village, where it cascades freely from the rocks, motorists often stop to fill their jugs and cans. There are many signed walking and cycling routes in the area, and it is a haven also for bird watchers. The air is fragrant with the smell of pine and wild thyme & rosemary.

Only 10 minutes drive is the wonderful Nueva Andalucia and Puerto Banus, overlooking three exclusive golf courses: Aloha Golf, Las Brisas and Los Naranjos and is therefore ideally located for golfing.

Internationally known as a 'jet set' play ground, Puerto Banus is where you can admire the luxurious yachts of the rich and famous or enjoy a cocktail in one of the many sophisticated bars. There is a wide variety of top class restaurants featuring cuisines from around the world. Or if your purse can stretch to it, shop until you drop in the many designer boutiques.

The famous Casino is 5 minutes walk from Puerto Banus, if you can keep up with the high rollers give it a try. Even nearer is the chic bar, La Sala popular late in the evening with the " beautiful people"

Old Marbella is only 15 mins drive away with its pretty Plaza de los Naranjos, beautifully preserved white Moorish houses and geranium-filled balconies.

The area features many different beaches with an eclectic mix of beach bars and up-market beach clubs to suite every one's budget but be warned prices in the beach clubs of Puerto Banus are not for the faint hearted.

The area is well placed for exploring beautiful Andalucia.The famous white villages are well worth a visit and also Ronda with its breathtaking gorge and the oldest bullring in Spain, still in use!

There are many national parks just on the doorstep and from December to April you can ski in the Sierra Nevada, 2.5 hours drive. Further afield, for the more adventurous Morocco, with its souks and third world charm is only two hours away.

What an amazing place! We went for my friends 40th birthday and we could not have asked for a more amazing private Villa with Private Pool. It was completely equipped with everything you would need. In a lovely position in the hills above Porto Banus so it was lovely and peaceful in the daytime and nights but only 15 minutes drive into the centre. We were well and truly spoilt. Booking was easy, check in was easy and the villa was amazing. I will definately be going back. THANK YOU SO MUCH for an amazing week!
