The Andalucia region
With its combination of excellent, reliable Mediterranean climate, great amenities and a huge range of exciting acitivites, it is not hard to see why the Costa del Sol is such a popular holiday destination. Around 350 days of sunshine can be expected each year, and where better to enjoy them than on the extensive beaches in the area? But although many come for the sun, there is plenty else besides, including excellent golf opportunities, vibrant nightlife and even secluded rural areas.
Excellent location, enjoying a great position with fantastic views over 'la concha ' mountain, countryside and the beautiful natural' las madranas' lake which has its own cable ski park and great fun for water boarding or ski. restaurant/bar with swimming pool. 7 golf courses within a 5 mile radius. guadalmina the most established minutes away. riding, tennis, water s'ports, pedalos, sea fishing, dolphins, whales luxury yacht hire all within a 5 - 10 min drive.

"Great holiday, Amazing Villa"
I went with a group of 12 girls for a Hen party. Our ages ranged from 25 to 35, and I have to say this villa suited all of us. The owner, give amazing directions to find the place and suggestions of places to go on San Pedro, and Marbella.
Its about 5 minutes drive to Main shopping in San Pedro, 10 Mins to Puerto Banus, and 14 mins to Marbella Old Town. We walked some days to the Supermarket (maracadonna in San pedro) and that was 25 mins… The property itself is surrounded by villa's but grounds are very large so its very private and secluded.. Nearby walking there is a lovely hotel at the bottom of the road (12 min walk) with a bar etc there so while it was quite and residential there was handy walkable places to go.. It was also very secure and safe..
What can I say about the villa itself!!! Firstly its much larger than we expected based on the photos. With extended gardens and hidden little areas... It really feels like a home and really can hold 12 people very comfortably. We were never on top of each other as there were so many balconies and area's for us all.
One great surprise was the additional kitchen upstairs. It meant anyone upstairs could have their own breakfast etc on their balconies without having to go down to main kitchen…
All mod cons… dishwashers, wifi, sky in a few rooms and Air con. And so Many Fridges and wine coolers (ideal for us!)
We were obviously on the trip to party, so we stayed around the villa pool for breakfast and lunches, and stocked the very handy pool bar! But headed out most nights to Marbella town, and Porto Banus.. Except for two nights were we had a late BBQ and drinks on the terrace. All Coals etc were supplied and the terrace is very large with plenty of seating and tables.
All duvets linens towels were supplied and seemed brand new… great showers in nearly every room... with brillaint water pressure etc... Loads of stuff supplied also like cleaning stuff (12 girls can create quite a mess just making toasties we quickly learned), washing powder etc (handy for soaking the bikinis)
Grounds were well maintained with Pool man calling during the week and cleaner came mid week also. Friendly neighbours who left their number and dropped you to the shop if they seem you walking by. But along side this owner left many contact numbers should you need any assistance.
The villa made the holiday to be honest and kept costs very low, as local supermarket prices were unbelievably low... Villa was ideal for us as a group and would also highly recommend it for 2 or 3 families sharing as there was a kids garden with swings and basketball, table tennis and Wendy houses. There was cots and high chairs in the lock up so all types of families would be well catered for.
Recommend car if there is a large group, as it would be handy for stocking up on food and water etc.. But cabs were very reasonable, they just were not readily available for flag down so it would be handier to have a car just to fly to the shop or main street.
Great week great house! Wish we had longer there to enjoy the villa more...

"fabulous villa with great views in good location"
we were a mixed group of different ages and we all had a great time- the beauty of the villa is that it is very spacious with different areas to escape too! - so we did not get on top of each other! it has a lovely country setting with the odd cockadoodledoo but only minutes to town/beach etc.,.the view is absolutely lovely looking over the cable ski lake which is good fun, although i didnt try it. we loved the tiki bar round the pool. and even managed a few barbies! we will definately come back.
