Villa Tranquila is located on the award-winning Monte Mayor Golf and Country Club set in one of the very few remaining valleys on the Costa del Sol where an abundance of natural vegetation can be found. Far from the madding crowd but within easy reach of everything, at just a ten minute drive from beautiful Benahavis, a gastronomic gem full of superb restaurants. The still Spanish coastal town of Cancelada is ten minutes away for grocery shopping or some typical tapas bars and restaurants. Beautiful beaches are within a 15 minute drive.

This spacious, luxuriously furnished villa is ideally located as a base for exploring Andalucía with fantastic walking, hiking, tennis, and horse-riding right on its doorstep. Overlooking the challenging 'must play' Monte Mayor golf course with views down to the Mediterranean, the villa is secluded but not isolated.

There is a 40% discount on Green Fees for clients staying at the villa.

For the less energetic stock up the fridges, lay by the pool, set against a backdrop of outstanding natural beauty,enjoy a few film nights in the suede-padded Cinema Room, and just recharge your batteries.

A fantastic retreat for groups of friends, families and golfing parties.

Further details indoors

Villa Tranquila has secure gated access with ample parking. The villa is elegantly furnished in a modern style with touches of Spanish tradition. The ground floor is mainly open plan leading onto shaded terracing by the pool. There is also a study with internet connection however the villa also has wifi throughout.

The whole of the first floor is taken up by the Master Suite with a private balcony with superb views.

The lower level floor has the remaining four bedrooms with patio doors, stylish bathrooms, a large Cinema Room with 2.5m x 1.5m screen and a Laundry Room with additional fridge ready to stock up for movie nights!

The whole villa is wired to the 7 zone music system including the terrace and pool area.

There is also a table tennis, board games and a Wii to help amuse the children, or the child in you!

Further details outdoors

The terrace area has retractable shading so on sunny days in the cooler months you can enjoy meals at the outside dining table under the sun. There is also a comfortable lounge seating area.

There are 'rock speakers' by the 10m x 5m pool to enjoy your favourite music and sun loungers.

The Andalucia region

Vibrant and varied - the Costa del Sol has something for everyone. Coastal areas bordered by beautiful Unesco protected mountain park areas. Virtually any sporting activity is available, International and local cuisine, museums and art galleries, aquaparks and wildlife parks, designer boutiques and shopping centres, lazy days by the pool or hectic parties at famous beach clubs - its all here.

There are numerous first class beaches to choose from within a 10 - 20 minute drive, with the world famous wind surfing capital, Tarifa just 75 minutes away.

For a local flavour of life in Andalucia visit any number of villages which lay within half an hour of the villa.

As a base for exploring further inland it is perfect with good road infrastructure. Cultural days out should include Malaga, Ronda, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz and Seville (a little further so maybe a two day excursion).

Semana Santa (Easter Week) is a must for a real flavour of true Spain.

All this and great weather most of the year.



Considered one of the finest and most beautifully located courses in Southern Spain,frequently voted into the Top 5 on the Costa del Sol as a MUST to be played. Monte Mayor should be played with strategy. A challenging course that can entertain you and feel like a different course every day you play it! The best advice to first time players is to forget about the score, just learn it.

The Clubhouse, a 5 minute walk, from the villa has a very reasonably priced restaurant and lounge bar, open every day.

Two tennis courts and 2 pádel courts are available with racquets and balls included for 15 euros an hour.

Tarifa - 1hr 20 mins

"lovely place to stay"

This villa was built by the owner for his own occupation- to an extremely high standard and in very good taste. I think it fair to describe it as 'spectacular'. It is a lovely place in a prime location high up in the hills. It is on a development that stalled in the recession, so the drive up is through a lot of empty building plots, but that becomes both invisible and irrelevant once at the villa itself. Village at the bottom of the hill has the basics (excellent restaurant and a supermarket) with the sea not much further. Probably not the best place if you have teenagers who want night life- due to the somewhat 'remote' location (you'll be driving a lot or using taxis) but for 'grown-ups' and smaller kids its perfect. I don't play golf but there is a pretty golf course in the valley. There are bedrooms on the ground level so OK for those not good with stairs. Air-con worked well enough to turn our bedroom into a fridge when we got the settings wrong.

"5 star accommodation and facilities in private and quiet location."

Excellent 5 star,5 bedroomed air conditioned villa in quiet and private location in secure gated Monte Mayor estate. Facilities include audio system throughout,including poolside,full sky sports package and wonderful basement cinema room-a real treat in the evening. Wifi good but confined to study area. Ideal for family with grown up children. Marbella Club golf course within 5 minutes drive-friendly with excellent clubhouse and food/drink. Shops in Cancellada and restaurants in Benahavis within 20 minutes. Remoteness,peace and quiet,with most magnificent views a real plus for us.

Many thanks for your review - much appreciated. Since your visit the WiFi has been boosted and now covers the entire property including the outside terrace.
