Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our previous stay at Casa Laurana was back in 2010 and comprised a mixed family group of eight adults and two babes. This time we were six strong - three couples - and hoped that our friends would enjoy the villa as much as we had previously. We need not have worried as we spent a fantastic week in El Saladillo (Estepona) that ticked every box. The same six of us go away together every Spring Bank Holiday and had previously visited Puerto Banus, LA Cala, C'an Picafort and Altinkum in Turkey. We all agreed that this is the nicest villa we have stayed in to-date.

From the luxury of home from home creature comforts - enhanced by the recent installation of a satellite system that accesses every conceivable channel - to the beautiful gardens and pool, this was a superb base for our holiday.

The local supermarkets still deliver your shopping if you spend a minimum of €100 - invaluable when you have to fill the drinks fridge in the utility room! - and typical prices are just €1.30 for a litre bottle of San Miguel or €4 for a nice bottle of red or white.

The local restaurants still offer great value for money. The Mexican restaurant at the end of the street, the Steak and Rib Shak on the main road, the Mandarin Palace all offer great food at reasonable prices.

Estepona market on Wednesday morning is just a short bus - or taxi - ride away. Try the pain au chocolat or crusty bread from the garage around the corner.

Sometimes people tell you that the beach is just 100 metres away but miss the final zero off! In this case, the beautiful beach is genuinely 100 metres away although the heated pool was more inviting than the cold Med in late May!

If you're thinking about the Casa Laurana, just do it!

A well equipped and beautifully situated villa.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Casa Laurana after a refreshing straightforward journey, considering we were flying Easyjet! And what a lovely sight to behold. As I'd booked this villa for a family break including in-laws, you can imagine my trepidation as I opened the beautiful gate to the villa! There were ten of us (7 adults ranging from 75-40, 2 teenage boys and a 5 year old girl) but the villa fulfilled and exceeded all possible expectations. It is set in lovely grounds complete with flood lit palm trees, a lovely grassy area, giving space for the children to play and the requisite (heated in this instance) pool, which was fab! The villa itself was spotlessly clean, well maintained and well laid out, enabling space and privacy for all, whilst enabling us to congregate together in the main living area. It was also superbly well equipped, right down to a box of matches for the BBQ. There was even a stack of DVD's and books to enjoy - although the weather was so glorious, we did not get time! We also really all enjoyed the portable table tennis table! Nigel was on hand with great advice on the local areas and the best places to eat, as well as being quick and efficient to sort any (very minor) niggles with the villa. The villa is very well situated for the beach, local pubs, bars, restaurants and supermarkets, which was particularly important to us, as we had a couple of 'less mobile' members of the family who needed to be accommodated! The local area of Estepona is beautiful and the surrounding towns of Marbella, Puerto Banus and Ronda are also well worth a visit.

We would recommend this villa to any friends and family and would like to thank Janet (who provided excellent customer service) for enabling us to stay in this wonderful 'home from home'. We will be back!

Look No Further - Satisfaction Guaranteed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family party consisted of eight adults (ages 25 to 78) and two babies both under six months old. As you can imagine, given the age spread, expectations were different for most of us but we need not have worried. All of our needs were surpassed as we wallowed in luxury for nine whole days. I would have said it was a home from home except that at home I don't have five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a swimming pool, huge gardens.......

All of the fixtures, fittings and furniture are of the highest quality. I was particularly impressed with the small touches that mean a lot when you are on holiday - the docking station so I could play the ipod, the satellite receiver and TV, the laundry facilities, extra fridge freezer (we called it the drinks fridge) etc etc. The air-conditioning was superb and much-needed in the 30F+ as was the surprisingly big pool. The parasols provided ensured the babies always had shade when necessary.

Another big plus for us is that we had no issues with security - the nature of the entire neighbourhood is welcoming with no evidence of criminality. You can't buy peace of mind but we had it.

Sometimes you read a villa description and it boasts that the beach is 100m away. Ten minutes later you are still walking to the beach! This is a genuine 100m and what a lovely beach it is too. There are enough bars and restaurants within a ten minute walk to keep everybody happy - our particular favourites were the Chicken Rib Shack and the Lebanese restaurant - name escapes me but Nigel, the house manager (and a handy point of reference for most things), will tell you the name.

We did not hire a car and just arranged private transfer to and from Malaga Airport. Our one worry is how we would get shopping (and booze) for eight people from the supermarket. Worry not. The Supersol will deliver your shopping same day - if you go before noon (excluding Sunday) or next morning if you shop in the afternoon. Try the croissants and pan de chocolat from the garage at the top of the road where you can also buy that day's English newspapers after 11 a.m.

We all agreed that the villa was the nicest that we had stayed in and we had a really lovely time - no disasters, no bad food experiences, no encounters with bugs etc. Whilst we will not be having the large family group holiday again next year, we hope to go back to Casa Laurana in the future.

Finally, thanks to Janet for a beautiful villa and to Nigel for all of his local knowledge.

Luxury Beachside Villa

  • 5 of 5

Family friends spanish sunshine and Casa Laurana, these make for a perfect holiday. Casa Laurana with mature gardens and swimming pool is a place all our friends genuinely loved and only left occassionally to wonder a short distance to the beach and a swim in the med. The owners have left nothing to chance and this spacious villa has everything required for a wonderful family holiday and catering for everyone from 2 years to 80, we know this because we were there for 4 fantastic weeks. It is the perfect location, beach restaurants, supermarkets and bus stop all within walking distance.

Fantastic beachside villa.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 had a fantastic week long stay in this superb villa during August 2010. It is furnished to a very high standard and has a great pool and garden. Very close to an uncrowded beach with plenty of bars, resturants and supermarkets also within a short walking distance. Would definately go again. Book now, you will not be dissapointed!

Casa Laurana is located in a beautifully unspoiled and peaceful residential area just 45 mins drive from Malaga Airport. The tranquil setting is less then ten mins drive west to Estepona (10 km) or heading east less than 5 mins to San Pedro (3 km), 10 mins to Puerto Banus and 15 mins to Marbella. It is a short 100 metre stroll to the lovely long, wide beach at El Saladillo which does not get to overcrowded, even in High Season. In 2015 our beach was awarded a Blue Flag for the first time. A paved promenade allows leisurely beachside walks west in the direction of Estepona. Alternatively, you can walk along the water's edge towards San Pedro and Puerto Banus. There are two great beach restaurants conveniently situated within a two minute walk. Within close proximity, Cancelada, a typically quaint Spanish town, has several excellent restaurants. The local areas of Benemara and Benavista have lots to offer in the way of bars, restaurants and shops. For the golfer, the location is paradise with many wonderful courses to choose from in the surrounding are
