Immediately, you are drawn into the magnificent living room which is a sweeping 14m long, and features an impressive 6m high wooden beamed ceiling. It is entered via an elevated stone walk-way thus giving the villa a real sense of space, light, tranquility and calm – ready for your luxury holiday to begin.

**** Travel with confidence ****
In business for nearly 20-years, we personally own and also directly manage each of our villas. Here's what makes us different, and why it's good news for you.
Our reputation is second to none and it is important for you to know why we are so unique in luxury villa rentals. To ensure a wonderful, safe and trouble-free villa holiday see the following points that separate us from the crowd. Be aware of all rental companies that cannot guarantee you these same high standards.
1. We only rent villas that we personally own, and personally manage
2. Specifically designed by us for shared luxury renting - no-more tiny bedrooms, so all your guests are happy
3. All bedrooms are equally spacious and luxurious
4. All bedrooms enjoy en-suite bathrooms that are large, modern and luxurious
5. The small number of exclusive properties in our collection means the highest standard of luxury and personal service is not just promised – it’s guaranteed
6. Our photos are current and property descriptions are always 100% accurate
7. Our local staff are helpful, discreet, professional, and employed directly by ourselves
8. No agents, no agent fees and no double-bookings
9. Setting high standards for almost 20 years
10. We are the preferred choice of discerning clients
11. Free personal Concierge Services to give you a friend on the ground
12. Your enjoyment and complete satisfaction is our number one priority
Lastly, our goal is not to just rent you one of our villas – it is to ensure you have a wonderfully luxurious holiday in a stunning location, enjoyed in one of our beautiful properties. This can only happen when your villa meets and exceeds your expectations; when our service makes you feel at home, and when your holiday comes to an end, all you want to do is return. Until all these goals are met, we are not happy. Please read a selection of our reviews. I think they will quickly reveal our commitment to ensuring that everything exceeds your expectations.
We only rent villas we personally own, and personally manage.
This makes us very different from the vast majority of rental agents who often have 100's of properties to market, and often never even see the villas they rent.
For you this means we are fully responsible for managing every aspect of your luxury holiday from the initial contact, right through to making sure your villa is spotlessly clean, and ready when you arrive. Just as you would expect from a leading specialist providing luxury villa holidays.
Our approach allows us to maintain very high standards. The responsibility for everything always rests with us, and never a third party. We have teams of gardeners maintaining the lovely gardens, repairmen are on-hand should ever the need arise, and we use our own trust-worthy housekeeping staff, who have been with us for many years. We think of everything to give you a wonderful holiday experience.
It is only possible to deliver and guarantee such high standards of luxury when you own and manage a small number of exclusive properties. It also means for you that you can be assured all property descriptions are 100% accurate, and you will not be left with a tired old property where the photographs are misleading or were shot 10 years ago. All our photographs are recent, and have been taken by ourselves.
Reassuringly, we have been in business for 20 years, and own all the properties we rent. This demonstrates our stability, and financial strength in these times where agents seem to come and go overnight. It means you can relax having an experienced partner looking after you, and you can be assured your funds are totally safe, and your holiday villa will be exactly as we describe
Julia or Mike at UltimateLuxuryVillaRentals.com purchased this villa in 2010
I just wanted to email you to thank you for all your efforts in making sure we had a great time in the villa. Everyone had a fantastic time and the villa is amazing. Julia from the chef services is outstanding ....she is one of the loveliest women I have ever met and works so hard! She is a fabulous asset to the villa. She went out of her way up make sure everything was good. I have to say it is probably some of the nicest food we have ever had. We are already planning our trip back. Thank you again.
We have just been on a holiday to Gran Hacienda Florentina and have to say it is just as fabulous as the other two properties here that we have visited before. The villa is furnished in a contemporary style entirerly suited to it, complete with infinity pool and games room. It is just fantastic for a large family get together as it suits both adults and the little ones. Best holiday in a long long while.
We recently had a short break in Gran Hacienda Florentina and wish we had been able to stay longer, it was stunning, easily lived up to our expectations and we will be coming back soon.
What a great spot for a golfing trip !
We recently travelled to Florentina for a golfing holiday and I have to say it was superb, the golf was excellent with so many courses to choose from and afterwards relaxing at the villa or dining out in Puerto Banus, we were spoilt for choice.

Ms Wood - May 2011
We recently stayed at Gran Hacienda Florentina and had the most fantastic time, our young daughter and her friend particularly loved the cinema and the infinity pool, whilst we enjoyed having time to relax. The villa is superbly appointed and very luxurious. We are hoping to visit again later in the year."

*** The Perfect Location ***
If you can bring yourself to leave the villa, within 2-3 minutes there’s a great choice of bars and restaurants. And, it’s just 10 minutes to the best beaches found on the whole coast, with seafront restaurants, beach clubs and well kept promenades. They are the only beaches protected with breakwaters from the strong tides of the Atlantic, which has actually washed away many of the other beaches. These bays provide calm swimming and are the safest for children. The villa is also just 10 minutes from Puerto Banus or Marbella, and 2 minutes to supermarkets, cafes and bakeries. Within 10 minutes you have 15 golf courses, and with 30 minutes you have access to all of the main attractions of the coast.
Our luxury private estate is located right on the doorstep of all the best things to do, yet is still very peaceful and not stuck in the noise and traffic of the immediate coast road area. It means when you relax around the pool, or have dinner on the terrace in the evening you’ll hear birds, nature and peace, and not the constant din of traffic noise passing by.
