Las Terrazas is an outstanding, architect-designed villa built (2010) in a traditional style around a central Andalucian Patio, which enjoys stunning sea views. Furnished by interior designers and featuring lighting and furniture from Morocco, the villa, which is the second home of the owners, is furnished and equipped to a very high standard far surpassing that normally found in holiday rental properties. There is air-conditioning throughout as well as under-floor heating for the cooler months. Features include a double height lounge with open fireplace and galleried library; master bedroom suite with private solarium and jacuzzi; four further bedrooms, three of which have ensuite shower rooms and separate dressing rooms; a cinema room; well-equipped gym & sauna. There is also free WIFI, a mini-grand piano, pool table and table tennis table. The terraced, landscaped gardens feature a large (14m x 11m max) heated salt-water swimming pool and a gazebo with superb gas BBQ.
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.
Linda Ridgeon purchased this villa in 2010
As our second home, Las Terrazas is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and offers a real home from home rather than just another holiday home. The Andalucian style decor and traditional furnishings will appeal to travellers who are looking for a place to stay that feels truly Spanish.
Heated saltwater pool, gymnasium, cinema room, professional level BBQ, electric mini-grand piano, Sky TV, Sonos sound system, pool table, table tennis, tennis (community tennis court).
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.
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.
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.
The Villa is absolutely fabulous and finished to a really high spec. Everything is thought of to make the stay luxurious. Stunning views especially from the master bedroom terrace, such a wonderful area. The villa is beautifully decorated and in a great location close enough to everything but far enough away for peace and tranquility. The pool area is fantastic with lots of outdoor space. The garden is very well managed and the landscape caping is beautiful.
We would definitely stay there again and the owner is a very lovely lady who responded quickly to all questions and concerns.
We stayed in the villa in early June. The villa was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with lots of activities and great restaurants. It was very spacious (even for a family of 7!) with great décor and facilities. The owner has been very helpful by preparing a detailed guide on how to operate all services in the villa (and there are quite a few with a sound system, sauna, cinema room, etc). The guide also provided a lot of useful info on the local amenities, restaurants and attractions - which was excellent. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed our stay at the villa (despite fresh easterly winds that could be quite strong in early summer). Thank you very much, Linda.
This villa is outstanding. Las Terrazas is situated in a quiet residential area yet just a 5 minute drive to the beach. The villa itself is immaculate, very well maintained and furnished to a extremely high standard. The pool area is very private and surrounded by beautiful flowers, plants and palm trees. There is a professional type BBQ as well as plenty of sun loungers and garden furniture. Inside there is a fabulous cinema room and a well equipped gym as well as plenty of very comfortable sitting areas. The beaches closest to the villa are long, sandy and relatively quiet with great restaurants right on the beach. We felt very relaxed and our overall experience of staying at Las Terrazas could not have been better - we will certainly return. Thank you.
Our family of six stayed at Las Terrazas for a week in April, 2016. The villa is stunning and well appointed with everything we needed for stay. It is beautifully decorated in the Andalusian style. The views from every window and patio are amazing. The location in the Elvira area is perfect - quiet, yet nearby beaches, restaurants, shopping and Marbella. The large pool is gorgeous, and the landscaping is lush with fruit and palm trees and flowering plants. Our grandchildren played in the pool several times each day.
Linda was extremely helpful in our planning process.
Thank you, Linda, for the brilliant vacation home away from home.
Las Terrazas is situated in Hacienda Las Chapas, an exclusive urbanisation of luxury villas, which is only 10 minutes drive from the beautiful resort town of Marbella and less than 5 minutes drive (or a 30 minute walk) from some of the best beaches on the Andalucian coast. At the heart of Marbella is its charming historic old town, a myriad of narrow, cobbled streets and alleyways which are filled with stylish shops, bars and restaurants. Alternatively, stroll along the lovely seafront promenade, lined with tapas bars, chiringuitos and beach restaurants. Another 10 minutes drive brings you to Puerto Banus, probably the most famous port and tourist enclave in Southern Europe and a magnet for the rich and famous. Closer to home is the smaller resort of Elviria, just 5 minutes by car and offering dozens of excellent restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets or the pretty port of Cabopino. Hacienda Las Chapas also has its own exclusive restaurant and a supermarket (open 365 days).
Golf: There are numerous golf clubs in the immediate vacinity the nearest being Santa Maria Golf & Country Club in Elviria. Greenlife and the Marbella Golf are within a 10 minute drive. Further information available on request.
