El Madronal is one of the most sought after areas on this coastline. It is home to some of the most exclusive and expensive properties in all of Andalucia, and yet it is a well established community, built over twenty years ago. Each villa has its own very large plot and La Cotorra has spectacular views from all sides. The location benefits from cool breezes and clear skies. There is plenty to do on the property, outside there is a garden and toys can be supplied. There is a terrace to enjoy the evening sun, a barbecue, an outdoor dining table, wonderful pool with cascade feature and shallow ledge for sunbathing. Plenty of sun loungers. Huge well equipped kitchen. 24 hour shop close by. Easy access range of supermarkets. Top restaurant, El Coto, within walking distance. 45 minutes from both Malaga and Gibraltar airports with excellent low cost flights. Many golf courses within 10 minutes: La Quinta Golf Course and Los Arqueros golf are within 5 minutes. There is a luxury spa at La Quinta, as well as paddle tennis and a golf academy for beginners.
El Madronal is also a fabulous base for exploring Andalucia. Ronda, home of bullfighting, Granada, the white villages, Cordoba, Seville, Tarifa and even north Africa can all be visited in a day. There are local markets, festivals, the famous Puerto Banus, the old town of Marbella and many sandy beaches all within 15 minutes of the house.
This has been our family villa for fifteen years and we completely renovated it six years ago, updating the pool, kitchen and bathrooms. We are passionate about the garden and believe it is a feature of the property. We live in London and Oxfordshire and visit El Madronal as often as we can. Our favourite time in Spring and Autumn, but Christmas is also enormous fun and the weather can be glorious.
We were staying with friends nearby who knew this villa was for sale and we fell in love with it. It has a lovely atmosphere and was designed and built by a Spanish family who lived here all year round. They understood how to build to take best advantage of the sun and the views and we think they found an amazing plot, one of the best on the coast.
The views all around and from every window make this a beautiful place to stay any time of year. We never tire of looking at the mountains and enjoying the peace and beauty of the surroundings.
