Villa overview - owner's description

Villa Alcuzcuz is a beautifully renovated stunning property nestled in the exclusive residential gated community of “La Reserva de Alcuzcuz” in the municipality of Benahavis.
This is a very charming and romantic Mediterranean property. It is surrounded by an astonishing wild nature, within a six hectare landscape, a south oriented dominant position in front of the Gibraltar rock and the Moroccan coast. The property epitomises the Andalusian spirit, with a very beautiful villa surrounded by olive, fruit trees and Spanish fountains. Every built element looks in harmony with its natural environment.

The land where the house is located has been subject to a process of increasing environmental protection. In 1992, it was included in the list of natural habitats to be preserved, and in 2006 the European Commission included it in the list of Sites of Community Importance (SCI) of the Mediterranean region. In 2015 the regional government of Andalusia declared as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC Sierra Bermeja y Real).

The single‐family home was designed by a local architect and built in 2002 under the direct supervision of the renowned international designer Jaime Parlade, whose personal style can be felt throughout the building (which is mirroring Parlade's own aristocratic villa in the immediate neighbourhood).

Villa Alcuzcuz is a two‐story house which has a traditional Andalusian style of enchanting simplicity, with Arabic tile roofs, colourful wooden beam ceilings, porches and wooden windows and doors.

During the last two years since the house has been acquired by the new owner, the garden and surrounds have been completely renovated with a wonderful contemporary feel.

The Ground floor includes a central area with a double‐height lobby, guest toilet, a large living area including a sitting room with a chimney, and a large contemporary open kitchen with dining room.

On this same floor, there is a large double bedroom with a full en suite bathroom and dressing room; there is also an office which overlooks the newly designed “Romantic Garden” with Andalusian basins/fountains and fruit trees.

There are also two private studios on this floor which are connected to the main house but also have separate entrances. Both studios have a double bed, en suite bathroom, living area and kitchen, these studios are perfect for family members who prefer a little more privacy.

The first floor includes a large library and two large bedrooms with private en suite bathrooms.

Close to the house, leading from the ground floor and which once was the main swimming pool is now and open water reserve/pool with lily flowers which is used for the automatic irrigation system.

Location

Villa Alcuzcuz is in the perfect area to also enjoy many other wonderful resorts.

Located on the southern face of La Serrania de Ronda mountain range, Benahavis is set slightly inland between Estepona and Marbella.
Distinctive to the other resorts nearby simply because of its tranquil, picturesque setting and real Andalusian feel.

Few places on the Costa del Sol enjoy such uninterrupted views of mountains, woodlands and rivers.
The village itself is a succession of well-kept narrow streets hedged with whitewashed Andalusian houses.

The picturesque park of Parque Torre Leoneras is located at the south end of the village and contains the ruins of a medieval Tower and a large lake.

The Montemayor castle was built in the tenth century and is mostly ruins but still has several sections of walls and the Queen's tower intact, from here you can appreciate stunning views of the Costa del Sol.

The Guadalmina River provides great canoeing opportunities, and as you make your way down the river, you will come across waterfalls and plunge pools. Here there is also a lovely river walk which takes you across a spectacular bridge and a traditional Moorish irrigation channel.

The Sunday market is held in the grounds of a shrine and is one of the most popular markets on the Costa del Sol.

When you're done with your historical explorations, there are a wealth of adventures to get started with! Consider a visit through the winding cobbled streets of Marbella's Old Town, where visitors can immerse themselves in local fare, flower stalls, gorgeous textiles and homemade wares. For more upscale shopping, a visit to nearby Puerto Banus is a must; guests can find a slew of designer stores here.

Of course, no day would be complete without a good meal, and Marbella is packed full of Michelin starred restaurants, providing the perfect excuse to indulge those taste buds.

Outside of the shopping and the food, Marbella also has world-renowned beaches where one can soak up the sun and grab a cocktail from a beachfront bar! There are plenty more adventures to be had here from water sports & parks to historical tours, hiking and biking.
