"Perfect villa and holiday"

We stayed here in May 13 and all I can say is what a wonderful place!! There was a group of 7 adults and 1 baby, and all of us thought the villa was fantastic and perfect for our holiday. Even the baby had a brilliant time. The villa owner was superb throughout the whole booking process and our stay. The villa is located a few miles away from Marbella and Puerto Banus itself and so it's in a perfect location for either a peaceful relaxing holiday or one to go into Puerto Banus itself. If you are thinking of a trip to the area I highly recommend this villa!!
