Villa in Benahavís
Running Waters
Set in the airy hills of the La Quinta neighborhood, this glamorous villa offers top class luxury just outside Marbella. Rugged sierra countryside contrasts with the home’s shining pool, white exterior, and neat, furnished balconies. Modern design incorporates plush terraces, a chic living room, royal bathrooms and a fully-outfitted rec room. Top golf clubs, beaches, and restaurants are nearby. Guests can comfortably settle at the shaded exterior tables of Running Waters as the Mediterranean sun beams down. Blessed with fine views of rolling ridges, the blue sea beyond, and the local district, the home’s shimmering infinity pool is almost irresistible. Rich style runs through the home’s rooms, with rounded columns, glass sectionals and artfully-designed rooms full of fine furniture, colorful decor, and crafted ornaments. The soft, velvet-draped sofas and games tables of the recreation room, plus the spacious home theater, ensure guests can relax in total comfort. The space and relaxed layout of the home’s bathrooms are particularly striking, while sunset views light up evenings by the barbecue on the lower terrace. Running Waters occupies a private spot amidst mountain scenery, while just being a short drive from Marbella’s sandy beaches and buzzing food districts. Keep things local with bracing walks or relaxed kayaking near the scenic reservoir, or practice your golf game at one of several nearby clubs. Picturesque beaches along the city’s waterfront are just minutes away, as are the intimate tapas spots, fine wine bars, and satisfying international options of the city’s old town.

Villa in Benahavis
Villa Palo Alto
Please note that this listing requires an on-site security deposit at check-in via cash/credit card/wire transfer, which will be held and resolved by the Host. Wake up each day to lush green hills tumbling to the sea under the Mediterranean sun at Villa Palo Alto. Cool and contemporary, the villa sits imposingly on a hill near Marbella and the beach overlooking the sea. Four bedrooms and bright minimalist interiors let you enjoy the Costa del Sol in style. The villa’s traditional tiled roof extends over a sleek terrace with lounge and dining areas and views of the sea. One of the property’s pools stretches out between two wings of the house; the other is located indoors and has an inset hot tub. You can either work up a sweat in the villa’s gym or in the sauna and Turkish bath, and at the end of a day of sightseeing or sunbathing, retreat to the media room. White walls, two-story windows edged in dark metal and a flat gray fireplace surround give the great room at Villa Palo Alto a modern, open-air feel. Far from being austere, though, the space is enlivened by a tufted sofa, geometric vases, oversized pendants and woven plum-colored dining chairs. For your convenience, the home has a fully equipped kitchen. Each of the four bedrooms at Villa Palo Alto has a king bed and en-suite bathroom. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and two upstairs; the second-floor bedrooms have dressing areas as well. Parties needing more space can use the apartment, which has a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, living room and kitchenette. Located in one of the most exclusive gated communities in southern Spain, Villa Palo Alto provides you with access to private golf and tennis courses, a horseback riding club, and a heliport. Though the villa makes you feel surrounded by lawn, hills, sky and sea, it’s actually just a 15 km drive from Puerto Banus Beach, an 11 km drive from San Pedro Alcantara and a 21 km drive from Plaza de los Naranjos. Spend an afternoon at Nikki Beach, a 35 km drive away, or take a day trip to Malaga, 81 km away, or Gibraltar, 74 km away. The most convenient airport is in Malaga and is 72 km away.

Villa in Marbella
Casa Montana
With a fantastic view of the La Concha mountain, which towers over the sun-kissed town of Marbella and the golden beaches below, Casa Montana is the last word when it comes to Malaga’s country villas. As sea breezes cool the home, sunlight filters through the bright interior - furnished elegantly in traditional Spanish style. Groups will love the refreshing pool and day-trips to white sand playas. Casa Montana has been constructed with genuine respect for the heritage and history of the Spanish residential tradition. Ubiquitously Iberian touches fill out the interior, including a welcoming, summer-inspired colour scheme, passageway arches with decorative flourishes and beautifully crafted hardwood furniture. Above, red colonial style roof tiles reflect the heat of the Spanish sun, keeping the interior cool, with the modern interior AC system doing the rest. With a separate guest house, guests will find all the space that they need here, with an expansive and privacy-focussed sun-catcher balcony looking down onto the poolside social space. Shaded from the sun, the cloistered dining and barbecue area is the perfect group gathering spot.  Leafy palm and cypress trees abound in the well-maintained garden, which is perfect for a post-breakfast stroll and for enjoying the soft Mediterranean breeze that flows through the property. Beyond the villa, even more options await, including visiting nearby bustling organic markets and excellent golf clubs, or taking on the sun and sand of the well-known Playa Peurto Banos. Guests can easily visit the historic sights and restaurants of humming Malaga, enjoying the zing of a fresh paella in the sunlit squares of the town, where Roman, Moorish and Castiliian layer over each other. Guests can also opt to escape to the interior, venturing to the wild scenery and cool respite of the nearby Parque Natural Sierra de las Nieves, where crystalline waterfalls and echoing natural caves await.

All about Marbella

Planning a Marbella vacation? We’re here to help!

Spain’s Costa del Sol is the go-to destination for European holidaymakers keen to enjoy a vacation filled with sun, sand, and sea, plus a touch of glamour and five-star luxury. The region has much to tempt every type of vacationer from the active to the more sedate and Marbella is the ultimate seaside enclave to set as your vacation base. With much to offer in the way of activities, with its Old Quarter, nearby world-class museums, never-ending beaches, golf courses, and fine dining restaurants, you may want to plan your itinerary carefully to ensure you see everything this beautiful part of Spain has to offer. That is if you can bear to leave the perimeters of your luxury villa. Whether it’s a romantic honeymoon just for two, a family get-together, or corporate retreat for 20, let Marbella be the backdrop to a vacation you won’t forget.

World-class cuisine

It is safe to say you will not go hungry while vacationing in Marbella. The close proximity to the sea combined with the clement weather ensures a rich variety of fresh, local produce is available throughout the year. It’s this fresh produce which inspires some of Spain’s most original chefs, whose restaurants are dotted on Marbella’s beachfront and Old Quarter. For celebrity spotting combined with a delicious bite to eat, MC Beach, set within the iconic Marbella Club is a must-visit. Bridget Bardot and Sean Connery are just some of the fans who’ve enjoyed alfresco meals there. Another Jet Set favorite is Villa Tiberio; a restaurant situated within 6,000 square feet of lush, tropical gardens. It was created by chef Sandro Morelli, who combines Spanish flavors with Italian dishes such as fettuccine al salmone and Osso Bucco.

Explore the golden coast

For a fun family day out, have a stroll along the boardwalk and harbour at Puerto Cabopino beach and marina. The views of the sand dunes, sea, and the mountains are spectacular, as is the nearby nature reserve.

For a day and night filled with full on glamour, look no further than Nikki beach. This infamous hot spot is the go-to for party lovers who want to be seen and worship the sun at the same time. Rent a VIP day bed, enjoy the music pumping out across the waves and sip a cocktail or two. It’s what vacations were made for.

Culture and activities

There are plenty of activities and cultural hot spots to explore near to your Luxury Retreats villa. Marbella’s Old Quarter has the remains of a 9th century Moorish fortress to walk around, while a trip through the palm trees in Alameda Park is a pleasant way to while away an hour or two. If you’d like to be immersed in nature for a little longer, spend a day in the Sierra de Las Nieves national park. The El Canalon natural rock pool formations here are well worth a visit. If hiking is your passion, a 90-minute walk up the La Concha mountain will reveal breathtaking views of Marbella’s coastline.

In central Marbella, you’ll find Avenida del Mar, an avenue filled with sculptures by Salvador Dali. Art lovers should also consider a day trip to nearby Malaga, to visit Picasso’s childhood home, an outpost of the Centre Pompidou, Santiago Hermitage, and CAC Museum of Modern Art, which are open all year round.

Wine connoisseurs will enjoy a vineyard tour near the historic hillside town of Ronda, where vines have been grown since Roman times. And the truly adventurous will delight in making a day trip to Morocco. It only takes a couple of hours to get to Tangier by ferry, and the tours of the souks and spice markets make this journey a vacation highlight.

Where to stay – Marbella villas

The Costa del Sol has white sandy beaches that stretch for miles along the coastline. Luxury Retreats’ villas are set on or near some of Marbella’s most exclusive beaches. The only question you need to ask yourself is which villa do you want to make your home from home.

Beachfront homes

When deciding on a beach rental in Marbella , Luxury Retreats does all the hard work for you, as its select edit of first-class villas has all the amenities and modern essentials to please even the most particular vacationer. Based in the most sought-after locations, such as Marbella or Hippo beach and with a full roster of staff, including housekeeper and butler, these villas are what summer dreams are made of.

Set within secluded, gated communities, these villas have expansive, lush gardens with sun terraces, heated pools, alfresco dining spots, and inbuilt bars. If tennis or golf are your sports of choice, there are golf courses, tennis courts, and even an equestrian center at the iconic, and close by, Marbella Club which are available for Luxury Retreats guests to use. The sleek interiors are a pleasure to lounge in after a day’s sun worshipping, as are the bedrooms that all come with en-suite bathrooms as standard. You are bound to want to rustle up something delicious in the villa’s state of the art kitchen, but if the inclination lies elsewhere, the culinary delights of Marbella are just a quick drive away.

Family vacations in Marbella

A family vacation in Marbella is a vacation experience to cherish for years to come. Set in the sunniest part of Spain (this destination has over 320 days of sunshine per year) with a variety of activities and beaches just on your villa’s doorstep, it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind with your nearest and dearest. The palatial villas are all close to the bright lights of Marbella, such as Puerto Banus beachfront. All villas boast a variety of amenities that are tailored to your complete enjoyment. Think indoor and outdoor heated pools, sun terraces, rooftop hot tubs, saunas, tennis courts, and indoor bars. Professional kitchens, floor-to-ceiling windows, marble flooring, and molded ceilings are just some of the design features to note. The luxury king-size bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms, with double basins, rain showers, and deep oval-shaped baths. The golfers in your family will be pleased to have Spain’s top premium courses close by, such as Real Club de Golf Las Brisas, Los Naranjos Golf Club, and Los Flamingos Golf Course.
