Description

This villa was built five years ago as a family home and the owner lives in it with his teenage family outside the summer holidays. So it is modern and well equipped with satellite TV, WiFi Ipod players, basically everything you would expect to find in a modern luxury villa.

The villa is close to the beaches and marinas of Duquesa and Sotogrande and is in a great location for touring the area. It is tranquil yet close enough to visit nearby bars and restaurants on a night out.

The villa is private on a raised plot and has extensive terracing for sunbathing and a large infinity pool with an integrated jacuzzi that sits 8 people. There are two outside dining areas with seating 8 at each table, as well as three chill beds ( 2 rattan, one stone with cushions ) and about 12 rattan sunbeds with tables. So the pool area is on the higher level and there is a private garden to the front a the lower level with a courtyard and waterfall feature.

Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

La Paloma is situated at the south western end of the Costa Del Sol and benefits from a micro climate which exists from Marbella down to Gibraltar created by the protection the mountains running down the length of the coast provide from colder winds from inland. So its not usual to find yourself on the beach on Christmas day or New Years Eve !

There are many places to visit such as Marbella, with its beaches and lovely old Town. Neaby is Purto Banus which is flash and brash with great shopping. Nearer to La Paloma are Estepona and Duquesa which are lively but family resorts. Th the south we have Sotogrande and Gibraltar is only a 20 minute drive and an interesting place what with Barbary Apes Dolphin Safari's and the Rock. 2 hours drive takes you to Seville whilst Jerez ( famous for horses and Sherry ) is 1 hours drive.

Basically the Costa Del Sol has something for everyone and a mild year round climate with things hotting up from June until the end September.

Duquesa

La Paloma is situated between Sotogrande and Duquesa with the nearest village being Torreguadiaro. Here is a bit of information on each place:

Sotogrande
In Sotogrande, you will be happy to learn, that there is a great number of things to do in this place, from visiting nearby towns like Tarifa or Marbella, to playing golf or polo. Or, you simply enjoy the beach or have an outing on the boat. Sotogrande has one of the major leisure centres in Europe and was given the award Centro de Interés Turístico Nacional. Golf, sailing, polo, beach, horseriding, tennis, diving, hiking, cycling are only some of the activities which can be realised in Sotogrande. From there you can go to interesting places like Marbella, Tarifa, Gibraltar or Castellar.

Puerto de la Duquesa
Duquesa Marina is the ideal place to dine on the evening, or to enjoy long sunny, lazy afternoon lunches. There are a very broad selection of restaurants, ranging from quite sophisticated a la carte restaurants to pizza joints and Chinese and Indian Restaurants. There are lots of bars, offering different facilities and atmospheres. The emphasis is on the family and although most evenings are very busy in the summer months, there are no night-clubs and the atmosphere is friendly. Most of the bars have satellite TV's so you needn't miss the cricket or football if that’s a major concern to yourself or your kids.

Either side of the port is flanked by long sandy beaches. Looking out to sea the long sandy beach on the left of the marina runs down towards Sabinillas which is a friendly Spanish seaside town. There you will find a 3 kilometre long promenade dotted with every type of restaurant imaginable. Inside the town itself there are more bars and restaurants to choose from all of which are visibly more Spanish than in the more cosmopolitan marina. On the opposite side of the marina the beach leads to Castillo, named so because of the large Moorish Castle which dominates the skyline. Castillo is basically a fishing village and all of the restaurants there predominantly serve seafood, so if you like fish and octopus, look no further.

Torreguadiaro
Torreguadiaro is the first village which sits on un-spoilt Mediteranean beaches in Cadiz province and existed long before the port of Sotogrande was even thought of. Torreguadiaro has retained a largely Spanish feel and being bypassed by all major roads is a fantastic beach holiday destination. It is a friendly, vibrant place with a nice atmosphere and a great mix of people from all walks of life.

The beaches of Torreguadiaro are deep and sandy covering several kilometers the beaches are being a mix of rocky coves and long sandy stretches, with lifeguards present in the summer months. On the beaches you can also find a number of Chiriguitos, ( beach bars ), which offer food, drink, parasols and fresh seafood.

The village has about 14 restaurants and bars with food to suit all tastes from Chinese to Italian, traditional and modern Spanish and Mediteranean cooking. The beauty of Torreguadiaro is that not only you can enjoy the food and beautiful beaches of Torreguadiaro and a ten minute stroll takes you into to its trendy neighbour which is more cosmopolitan resort of Sotogrande.

“This is a wonderful property that will totally live up to your expectations of sheer luxury”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

A wonderful fortnight stay in a quite stunning property. Gary and Yvonne were brilliant - just classy wee touches that make you feel totally at ease - s well as the wine and beer on arrival!! The villa is stunning, private and equipped with absolutely everything. Wi-Fi was excellent and able to watch Wimbledon on the wonderful TV set up. Pool was wonderful and perfect for all the family and cleaned regularly. The perfect part of the whole experience was that there were so many different areas that we could suit out at that got the sun for the whole of the day. Don't even think about it. Book it and you will not regret it

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your kind review. You were lovely guests and we look forward to seeing you and your family again !

“Relaxing Holiday”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2013

Lovely villa in good position. Ideal for relaxing. The large outdoor area had plenty of seating and sun loungers spread around the pool. The view over the Mediterranean was spectacular. We ate outside all the time and made good use of the barbecue. Master bedroom was very spacious with a balcony. There was also a seating area outside of one the lower bedrooms. Plenty to do in the surrounding area. We went whale watching, visited Seville, a several of the White Towns, Marbella and the local ports. The teenagers in the group spent time on the nearby beach. Owners were very helpful with information and car hire details. Their children also offered advice on the local nightlife.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the feedback. I will have to get my kids write a local nightlife guide, as I prefer the restaurant scene.

“Stunning villa”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

Communication with the owners of the villa was excellent during the booking process. They answered all queries about layout of rooms etc,offered advice on local activities and provided a warm welcome on arrival. The villa was spotlessly clean and each room was beautifully furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen was equipped with everything required to prepare meals for 12 people. The exterior of the property was stunning. There were more than enough sun loungers for our party of 12 and the different areas provided peace and an escape from the crowd/family if required. The view of the sunrise each morning was spectacular. It is necessary to hire a car for this villa, but worth doing so as there are many beautiful places to visit in the nearby area. The owners provided details of a reasonable car hire company. Every aspect of our holiday was perfect and we would love to return.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind review. As a result of our experiences this summer when talking to our guests, we have decided to put together a more comprehensive guide to the area in terms of beaches, restaurants and interesting places to go with things to do. Its not meant to be an activity holiday as such but there is a lot variety in the immediate area and our guests who have been out and about a bit have really enjoyed themselves.

“Relaxing family holiday in the sun”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week in this clean and spacious villa. Beds very comfortable, everything we needed was provided. Days spent by the pool, cooking family meal to be enjoyed in the open plan dining area in the evening, then watching a film together in the evening with chilled beers and champagne. Only day trip we took was to Gibraltar which we really enjoyed. We spent less than expected as food shopping was very economical. We did not want to have a sightseeing holiday so we didnt explore the area, and the weather was so warm, it was nicer to relax.Lots of areas around the pool and jacuzzi to enjoy. Beautiful views. Gary and Yvonne provide lots of information and advice and encouraged us to share their home. The week passed too quickly !

Owner's reply: Its an absolute pleasure to have such friendly guests and it is needless to say that we will warmly welcome them back if they decide to stay at our villa again.

“Beautiful villa comfortably accommodating 10 people”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2012

The villa is large and well appointed with magnificent views,numerous comfortable outdoor seating areas and a wonderful environment for complete relaxation

Owner's reply: Thanks for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back next year.

“Total relaxation in the most exclusive Villa”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2012

Absolutely the most relaxing holiday in a beautiful Villa that sits in a position giving spectacular views of the mediterranean. Perfectly maintained with a high level of service from the owners this villa allowed us to relax for the whole of our vacation. The urbanisation that it is located in is very exclusive yet close to a large selection of amenities. A short drive from both Duquesa and Sotogrande you get the benfits of both seclusion and convenience in one property, with views that are breathtaking. We will definately book again

Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind remarks, I hope you will continue to return to us every summer.
