January 1970

Arrived for our stay and was pleasantly greeted by the hosts and for the following week had a fantastic time and nothing was too much trouble.A day at Ascari was arranged for the guys and a spar day at Shanti Som for us girls. The villa was great and furnished to a standard that made you think it was yours and not a rental, The pricing of the villa we thought was good value We definitely will go back, and can recommend a visit to anyone., .

10 bedroom El Madroñal villa to rent
January 1970

Well what can we say about our holiday to this villa - The villa was stunning in a beautiful but rural setting with everything you need easily accessible. The pictures do not do justice to this amazing property. We stayed in Spain as we where getting married in Gibraltar and took 16 of our friends and family with us. We required a large villa with space and character and this is exactly what we got in leaps and bounds. What made this villa was the fantastic staff (Andy and Nicole) that where on hand 24 hours a day - they where friendly, accommodating and nothing was too much for them. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for an unforgettable holiday, with stunning views and a beautiful villa.

Travel guide

Villas for rent in Benahavis

Benahavis is a traditional Spanish mountain village and district between Marbella, Estepona and Ronda, 7km from the Costa Del Sol and less than one hour drive from Malaga airport. Nestled in the Serranía de Ronda mountains, it overlooks Guadalmina Golf Course, surrounded by an unspoiled landscape of lush forestry, picturesque lakes and the rivers of Guadalmina, Guadaiza and Guadalmansa. Renowned for its authentic Spanish gastronomy, Benahavis is often referred to as 'dining room of the Costa del Sol', with the highest concentration of restaurants in the region.

Stay in one of our villas in Benahavis and experience the charms of this typical Andalucian village. From its winding streets to its rustic whitewashed houses and village centre with traditional Spanish restaurants, Benahavis is the ideal destination for a relaxing, low-key holiday in the Mediterranean countryside.

Cultural points of interest include the 11th century Moorish Montemayor Castle, private property of the Duke of Fríason, at the top of the Sierra Calderona mountain range. A hike or bike to the peak provides stunning panoramic views of the Costa del Sol’s coastline and Guadalmina river. Torre Leonera Park to the south of the village has a dedicated area for children, with ruins of an ancient medieval tower. After a morning of sightseeing, unwind and watch the sun set on one of the many Blue Flag beaches of the Golden Mile, just a 4-minute's drive away and a 20-minute drive from the popular resort of Puerto Banus.

With plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, try your hand at canoeing at Guadalmina river, explore the beautiful gorges, waterfalls and plunge pools, with their crystal-clear waters and local wildlife, or practice your swing at one of the nine golf courses. Renting one of our villas in Benahavis gives you the opportunity to fully experience its rural charms. Choose from family-friendly villas within walking distance of the beach, and properties with private pools and jacuzzis.
