About Linda Ridgeon

We are a retired couple who live in the UK but like to spend part of the year in our second home in this beautiful part of Spain.

The Andalucian style decor and traditional furnishings will appeal to travellers who are looking for a place to stay that feels truly Spanish.

The location is perfect for a holiday on this beautiful part of the coast being in close proximity to some of the best beaches, yet only 10-15 minutes from the buzz of Marbella and Puerto Banus. Both Elviria and

Guestbook comments from the owner

Las Terrazas was incredible. The villa is decorated so beautifully and tastefully with elegant Maroccan Andalucian accent. It had everything you could imagine, from the library to the movie room! Very well maintained and we were glad to find commodities ready on our arrival. The view was spectacular overlooking the Mediterranean to the African coast. It was near awesome places to visit! We really enjoyed the local beach, Marbella, Granada, Ronda and even Gibraltar. The landscape, is amazing, perfect, as the whole property. The owner, Linda was very helpful and available. Thanks to share your Paradise!. Patricia, the house keeper, is profesional and friendly. We hope come back.

Even better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

My family and our friends had a wonderful stay in Villa Las Terrazas June 2017, everything was prepared well. We stayed there about 3 weeks. Villa was so beautiful, even better than on the actual photos. Villa was kids friendly, pool was separated from house with fence, so our little kids couldn’t get through by themselves. Pool itself was absolutely huge and rooms were well situated. Common areas are lovely and beautifully decorated. Kitchen was fully equipped, which makes cooking so easy. Garden and pool area was stunningly beautiful. Our kids loved that they could pick some fruit from trees. My husband praises the internet, it was really fast and he was able to do some work via internet. Owner Linda was friendly, helpful and always answered quickly to our e-mails. House maintenance staff was also so friendly. These three weeks went by so quickly and it was very sad to leave the house at end of our vacation. This villa grew deeply to our hearts. It was first experience for us to rent a villa, and now the standards are high.

Dear Linda, big hug to you and many thanks from all of us!

We stayed as a family of eight in late may 2017 for one week and had high expectations after drooling over the photos and reading the reviews months before hand and we were not disappointed in any way.

The villa is stunning inside and out,everything you could wish for,in fact it is even better than the photos suggest,i cannot fault a single thing.

The gardens are huge and stretch all around the house and are beautifully kept,lots of different areas to enjoy the sun,it is easy to find a spot all for yourself even with a large family staying at the villa.The covered terrace is a truly relaxing place for a night time drink and a chat,beautifully decorated, fantastic lighting all whilst listening to the music of your choice piped into the room by the Sonos sound system!

The terrace with electric sun canopy overlooking the pool was a delight for evening meals cooked on the very impressive barbecue,just be sure to retract it if the wind picks up.

The jacuzzi quickly became a favourite place for me and i even went into the gym (just to have a look) at the very impressive equipment should one feel the urge to use it!

The kitchen was really well stocked with oils,herbs spices and sauces,rice pasta etc,just need to replace anything if you use it up for the next guests,plenty of cutlery,plates,glasses etc also.

The owners were so helpful in our arrangements after booking and nothing was to much trouble,Linda even put us in touch with a contact to have a birthday cake made for me!

The heated pool of course was a big hit with us all especially my two young nephews,they were in there every chance they had!

Everything was wonderfully clean and fresh,the beds and pillows so comfortable,a real home from home,i would have no trouble recommending this property to family or friends,stay here if you can,you will love it!

We had a great time,thanks so much for letting us stay at Las Terazzas!

Words cannot describe

  • 5 of 5

Las Terrazas was just amazing. The photos cannot show the beauty of this property. The grounds are just stunning and the views of the ocean from several rooms in the home spectacular. It was so relaxing to sit outside and hear the ocean and when the weather was cooler to sit in the glass enclosed sun room to read. We walked to the beach for lunch at the open air restaurant right on the ocean for the freshest seafood around. The location is amazing since you can visit several different areas in two hours or less. We visited Granada and Alhambra and spent a day in Mijas. The owner, Linda Ridgeon, was so helpful before our trip and gave us so much information. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful, Private Villa with a HUGE pool!

  • 5 of 5

House is absolutely beautiful - better than the pictures suggest. Master suite upstairs, all other guest rooms are on the ground floor and nicely separated from one another for privacy. The house would comfortably sleep 10 people. The place has every amenity you could think of.

The kitchen is a bit small relative to the size of the house, but nice and very functional. Pool is absolutely huge - the size of a NYC or London apartment (not kidding, it's double the size of my first apartment). Common areas are lovely, peaceful and beautifully decorated.

The only drawbacks were the beds were so firm they weren't very comfortable and the wifi really only worked inside on the main floor of the house.

One other note, you'll need to rent a car at this home - it's not easily walkable to much of anything. But it's a short drive (<10 minutes) to anything you'd need including grocery stores, the beach, and great local restaurants.

The owner was also fantastic to deal with, very communicative and quick to respond to any needs. I'd strongly recommend for anyone wanting a private escape in Southern Spain.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the villa and thank you for your kind comments and positive feedback. Just for clarification, the high-speed internet (up to 40mbps unlimited) is available throughout the main floor (kitchen, dining area, lounge, covered terrace) and much of the lower ground floor (including the cinema room and gym). The signal does struggle on the top floor (master bedroom) and in the gardens (although normally OK on the main terrace). I am sorry you found the bed too firm for you but this is obviously a matter of personal preference and previous feedback indicates that guests find the beds to be very comfortable. One regular guest contacted me after his first visit to say the mattress was the most comfortable he'd ever slept on (including his own at home) and he had been worried beforehand because he can't sleep on a firm mattress. To clarify, the mattress in the master bedroom is a quality CodiConfort memory foam mattress (designed to fit the shape of your body) and the other mattresses are medium firm Flex hypoallergenic sprung mattresses.

A splendid villa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this villa was fantastic. First of all, this villa is beautiful, clean and very spacious, perfect for a group of 10. The location is superb - in a charming neighborhood- and there is a beautiful sea view from the terrace. The design and conditions of the house are really amazing: it was very comfortable, lovely designed with everything we needed there.

The pool is fab and my kids could have spent the entire holiday just in there.

A special thanks to Linda, the owner, who cares about the comfort of all, and made sure that our stay was the best. She was really friendly and very helpful.

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house, et I recommend it to anyone.
