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!

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.
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
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.
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!
A fantastic villa! Really well equipped, lovely pool and sunbathing etc.. area, with the most marvellous view of Gibraltar and N Africa in the distance. Luxurious is barely strong enough to describe how the villa is set up and presented. Comfy beds. All rooms have the view and ours even had a view from the shower! Really good spot for nearby golf and/or exploring the bright lights or beach bars on the coast or Benahavis and up in the mountains to Ronda etc.. ear at La Torre in Benahavis - good value local food. The owner is a real gent and was really helpful. Recommend highly!
This is a lovely villa with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday. We were given very detailed instructions from the owner which was a great help and the person meeting us on our arrival explained everything we needed to know. The villa was very clean and very comfortable with a lovely view towards the coast. There were several golf courses close by and there were lots of restaurants in the nearby town of Benahavis. We all had a fantastic relaxing holiday - thank you Reg!
The villa is wonderful: gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms, spacious living area and a well-equipped kitchen. If the inside is wonderful, then the outside is even better: fantastic views, plenty of space, comfortable loungers, a perfect pool and sun, sun, sun. We ate outside every evening, thanks to the excellent grill. Apart from our visits to the supermarket, we barely left the property. A great week.
We loved every minute of our holiday at Villa Cielo and will definitely return. The house is beautiful – incredibly spacious and light, with fabulous views over the hills down to the sea. The pool, where our gang of eight spent most of our time, is perfect. Right temperature. Right size. Right colour. Spectacular views. And the grass surround works really well. All of the bedrooms are spacious and airy and very clean and well-kept. Reg is a perfect owner/host and his team on the ground are excellent. I can’t think of a criticism and Reg I imagine you’ll be full next year!
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.
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
