**** 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.

About Julia or Mike at

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just enjoyed another great Easter week in Spain at Gran Villa San Pietro and thanks to all the ULVR team who continue to make these visits so effortless and relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble and the attention to detail at the Villas makes every stay special. This must be our fifth year with ULVR and we will be back again for sure.David Frame

Luxurious, well maintained, great view and service

  • 5 of 5

It all starts with fantastic service (Hessel). Not only I got a great guidance throughout the booking, but he basically organized our whole event. Didn't ask anything in return. The villa is perfect. The photos give a good feeling, but being there is even better. We had a lot of fun with the indoor pool, cinema, Jacuzzi’s, and disco. I can recommend the villa's to anyone.

*** 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.

*** Activities and Amenities Close to the Villa ***

2 minutes to a wide choice of excellent bars and restaurants

2 minutes to lovely café’s and deli’s for a relaxed breakfast or snack

*** Our Top 10 Recommends ***

1) Ronda

Ronda is one of southern Spain’s crown jewels. With the beautiful architecture and historic attractions it has surpassed Cordoba and Granada as the most visited town in Andalucía. 30 mins

2) Alhambra Palace

One of the 7-Wonders of the World, and dating back over 1,300 years. Spain’s most visited tourist attraction is a ‘must-do’ day trip, combined with a tour of Granada. Allow 2 hours for the scenic drive

3) People Watching!

Soak up the vibrant atmosphere of Puerto Banús, and prepare to be shocked! 10 mins away

4) The White Villages of Andalucía

Explore the famous Pueblos Blanco’s. Stroll the cobbled streets and enjoy the sidewalk cafes of Mijas, Grazalema, Gaucín, Ronda, Zahara de la Sierra, and Arcos de la Frontera. 30-60 mins

5) Tapas Galore!

Spain’s tapas tradition began when King Alfonso X recovered from an illness by drinking wine with small dishes between meals. After regaining his health, the king ordered that taverns would not be allowed to serve wine unless accompanied by a small snack or “tapa”

6) Enjoy the Beach

Just 10 minutes away you’ll find the best beaches the whole coast has to offer. The beaches are the cleanest in Europe with ‘5-star Blue Flag Certification’, and have many beach cafes, laid-back bars and restaurants

7) Beach Party - Marbella Style

Sunbathe, chill and party with the rich and famous at the high-energy beach clubs of Marbella. Sizzling Ocean Beach Club is our top pick. 10 mins

8) Europe's Nightlife Capital

Marbella is one of Europe’s hotspots for non-stop nightlife with over 100 nightclubs and cocktail bars to choose from. Beware though Marbella’s clubs do not close until 7am!

9) Go shopping!

Marbella and Puerto Banus are known for their designer shops, but if you want to miss Gucci, Prada and Jimmy Choo then try the bustling daily markets. The best are San Pedro (Thurs), Puerto Banus (Sat), and Marbella centre (Mon). 5-10 mins away

10) We found it impossible write only 10 ‘best things to do’, so here’s the others that made our short-list:
