Overview

Benahavís Villa Rental Photos and Description

Five double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms catering for up to ten guests

This beautiful newly built villa boasts every modern comfort, and is exclusively available for your holiday rental. The property boasts a spectacular position with magnificent uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean and mountains - every room enjoys a view of the sea.

Perfectly situated facing towards the south west the pool and sunbathing area enjoy all day sun to maximise your holiday time! Please note that this is the only villa listed on this web-site and located at the Monte Mayor estate where the pool and sunbathing area enjoy all day sun and where you will also have uninterrupted sea views!

Located within a fifteen to twenty minute drive of all local amenities (beaches, restaurants, supermarkets, golf, tennis and kids activities etc), the villa offers the perfect combination of being close to the action and yet far from the madding crowds of package tourists. Prepare to be amazed by the sheer beauty of the location and the privacy and quietness this ensures!

The villa's ground floor features an open plan very large, double height reception room. 40 inch flat screen HD television with SKY+ HD TV system, DVD/CD, ipod/iphone speaker dock. Guest Cloakroom. Dining area seating ten. Open plan Kitchen with breakfast bar includes a double oven, microwave, two fridges, dishwasher. Utility Room with washing machine. Two bedroom wing: double bedroom opening onto garden, with en-suite bathroom + twin/double bedroom also opening onto garden, with en-suite shower bathroom. Covered terrace with barbecue and external dining table seating ten.

The villa's 1st floor features the spectacular main entrance hall and staircase to the ground floor, and mezzanine gallery. Outside there is a balcony terrace with seating. Master double bedroom opening onto this terrace with en-suite bathroom with toilet, bidet, bath and shower. Two bedroom wing: double bedroom with private balcony and en-suite bathroom with bath and shower + twin/double bedroom with private balcony and en suite bathroom with shower.

Finally, at the top of the villa, there is also a roof terrace to capture the last rays of sun and offering even better views of the sea and mountains.

The villa is fully air conditioned for the hot summers, and is very well insulated for staying warm out of season.

The elegant, black tiled pool is the perfect size - 10 x 5 metres and has a uniform depth of 1.6m to maximise useability. With a salt not chlorine based system, the pool is also much more comfortable to swim and lounge in - you'll love the difference! Sun loungers and beach towels are provided.

Apart from splashing about in the pool, there are plenty of activities for the kids along the coast - including water parks, the nearby Selwoo safari park, Fuengirola zoo and the opportunity to take golf, horse riding and tennis lessons.

All the famous cultural and tourist sites of Andalucia can now be reached within an easy one to three hour drive from the villa, following huge investment in Andalucia’s transport infrastructure, making ideal day or overnight trips. Coastal Andalucia boasts not only the best climate in Europe, but also fine beaches, glamorous resorts, luxury shopping and sporting and leisure activities: in short the ideal environment for the all year round holiday maker. Inland the landscape changes from remote snow capped mountain ranges to ecologically important national parks, from the driest plains to the greenest valleys. Its legendary cultural identity includes five Unesco World Heritage sites (the great cities of Sevilla, Granada and Córdoba, the Doñana National Park and the renaissance towns of Úbeda and Baeza), being more than most countries can boast. Not far behind in cultural identity are Cádiz, Jerez, Málaga and Ronda and the renowned “white towns and villages” of which Casares, Medina Sidonia and Vejer de la Frontera are personal favourites.

Wine Tasting: For the dedicated wine taster, the world famous bodegas of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria (together the three historic towns of the Sherry region) are just an hour and a half away, a beautiful drive through the spectacular countryside of the Alcornocales Natural Park. The best known bodega is Gonzalez Byass, home of Tio Pepe, which offers several daily tours as many other wineries do. Málaga province is also famed for its dessert wines, Lopez Hermanos being the premier winery (about an hour and half’s drive).

Golf: The coast of Andalucía is also nicknamed the Costa del Golf by dint of the fact that there are over 70 golf courses between Gibraltar and Málaga, with an increasing number nearby in the adjacent Cádiz province, offering a variety of challenges at all price levels. With the ideal climate for all year round golf, the area is the perfect destination for both golfing couples and groups. In recent years the following courses have hosted major professional tournaments, all within 45 minutes drive from the villa: Aloha, Finca Cortesin, La Quinta, Los Flamingos, San Roque and of course Valderrama, the spiritual home of Europe’s Ryder Cup resurgence.

About Reg Hoare

I am Reg Hoare, the owner of Villa Cielo en la Tierra, which I personally designed and developed. I am British and live and work in London, but spend as much time as I can at the villa (usually out of season to ensure the villa is available for rental). It's definitely a second home for me!

Reg Hoare purchased this villa in 2010

Why Reg Hoare chose West Costa del Sol

I have been coming to Spain since I was a toddler and fell in love with Monte Mayor when I first visited it in 2001, buying some land a year later. Having put together my design, project team and financing, construction took place between 2008-10. I hope that you too will fall in love with Monte Mayor and Villa Cielo en la Tierra.

What makes this villa unique

When Pepe the estate agent first showed me the plot, I was blown away - I'd told him I wanted Mediterranean and mountain views not golf course views, and wow did he deliver! Guest after guest, like me, has fallen in love with the beautiful views from the terraces, pool and garden - and with the incredible peace and quiet of the surroundings. Yet if you want some action, all the amenities and services are just 15-25 minutes drive away - the perfection combination of being away from it all but in the middle of it!

The Ultimate Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four weeks at this villa and enjoyed every minute. The villa is better than the description and Reg and Sandra are the ultimate hosts. We highly recommend this villa. You won't be disappointed.

Quite simply, it was the most successful holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed at Villa Cielo and enjoyed every minute. Absolutely loved the pool - it was the best part of the villa and just what my two “boys” needed! For me in particular, the location was to die for. The most tranquil “heaven on earth” with breath-taking mountain scenery and a sea view - it was truly magical place to just chill out and forget about our hectic work lives for a while. All in all, our stay was really nice and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again if we were to travel to Marbella in the future. Jane

Great modern villa with stunning hill-top views

  • 5 of 5

This a great villa for a stay with friends or family. The property is extremely spacious with a large central area to gather and socialise. The property is modern and sleek and very comfortable. The views from all bedrooms and the immaculate terrace are spectacular and the infinity pool is a good size. I would definitely recommend the house and we will consider going back.

Breathtaking views and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This very tasteful home has the most breathtaking views of wonderful countryside and you feel relaxed immediately on arrival. The house itself is perfectly equipped with beautiful decor and is full of enormous windows which fill the house with beautiful natural light. The swimming pool is a real treat and I can't recommend this house enough.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa with 8 friends as a getaway and were not disappointed. The villa itself is beautiful and Reg has ensured that everything you could possibly need for a good holiday is provided and to a high standard. ALL the bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and worthy of a five star. The views are stunning and the sound of 'nothing' for us was absolutely perfect - we hope to return at some point and would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone. Thank you Reg

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two under-5s, and a group of friends. It is the perfect base for a holiday. Sleek interiors, beautiful pool, a lovely garden with stunning backdrop. The bedrooms are like being in a plush hotel. Our kids loved running around on the magi-grass, playing on the pool steps, and eating round the big table. As did the grown-ups! All in all, a great stay.
