The beautiful Andalucian towns of Ronda and Casares and the Cosmopolitan town of Marbella are all within easy reach.
Golfers are spoilt for choice locally - the renowned courses of Valderrama, Sotogrande and San Roque are all less then a 10 minute drive. La Reserva, Finca Cortesin, Almenara, Alcaidesa, Duquesa and Dona Julia are also all within 20 minutes. La Paloma De Manilva is a private-gated community overlooking the sea, located about 55 minutes drive south from Malaga Airport or 20 minutes from Gibraltar. Jerez Airport is a 60 minute drive away
La Paloma de Manilva sits on a hill overlooking the entire coastline stretching from Malaga to Gibraltar. The views are probably the best you will see in the entire area and yet we are just minutes away from a lovely but quiet beach, numerous bars, restaurants and shops and just 10 minutes away from fantastic golf clubs.

The local beaches are totally unspoilt and feature miles of sandy Mediterranean coastline some with views to the Rock of Gibraltar and on a clear day, the mountains of Morocco. The beaches in this part of southern Spain are some of the most private and least crowded. There are two beach clubs with restaurants, El Cucurucho and El Octogono. Sotogrande beach offers windsurfing, kite-surfing, canoeing and hobie cats for hire on the river.

DBO NOT BOOK THIS PROPERTY!!! Great view but suffering from lack of maintenance and an absentee owner that makes promises with no intent to keep them. Cable was out the entire week, no internet and the water pump failed twice (no water for those days). Owner promised a rebate but has given nothing but excuses for why she cant pay us back for all the inconveniences we experienced. Also promised maid service during our weekly stay but no one showed up.

The villa was rented by me, on behalf of family members from Sweden. Great comms with owner and key-holder ensured immediate access to the property. Exceptionally clean and well presented on arrival. The villa itself is very very well planned and laid-out. Stunning sea-views and views to Africa which were a great surprise to the party in the morning, as they arrived when it was dark. Pool lovely and clean and surrounding area, including the bbq/bar area is fantastic. The party commented that its probably the best rental villa theyve ever had and considering they are fairly well travelled, thats a big compliment. Would definitely recommend this villa and the Hansson family have stated thatd they really love to be back in the future after a really memorable, thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Fantastic villa with ample facilities. The house was kept incredibly clean and there were enough spare towels/sheets for a large party. The gardens were pristine however we were slightly concerned that the pool wasnt as clean/maintained properly. It was only cleaned halfway through our stay and there didnt seem to be enough chlorine in it. Towards the end of our stay we were unable to use the pool as the water had become quite cloudy/murky. There were many light bulbs not working inside and out which made it tricky when coming home late at night and trying to get a key in the door. We also didnt feel there were enough glasses for a party of 8 although I appreciate this is probably wear and tear and breakages throughout the summer. A visitors information/guest book would be a useful addition which we have normally found in other villas we have stayed in, general info about area, restaurants etc and space for guests to leave comments/recommendations etc. On the whole a great place to stay. Thank you very much for a great two weeks.

A beautiful villa, spotlessly clean with one of the best views I have seen. Our groups age range was from 16 to 87 and everybody loved it. It is very well positioned for Gibraltar, Sotogrande, Marbella and Puerto Banus. In a review you should give a balanced opinion but I am sorry in my opinion there are no negatives, we quite simply did not want to go home!
Ari & Naomi from London
Absolutely fantastic! The villa is modern, clean and well equipped. The sea views are terrific and the elevated position ensures a constant sea breeze (air-con is great but hardly needed).
The different terraces and outdoor dining/relaxing areas allow a large party to spread out and really enjoy the place. Theres even a toy room with plenty of toys and games for all ages. The bedrooms are all tastefully furnished with individual style and the bathrooms are clean and modern. The master bedroom is something else - more of a suite!
The amenities are excellent and the pool area is just great - plenty of space with loads of good sunbeds. The thatched cabana with its day bed is simply luxurious - this villa is a cut above the above the norm.
The owner and local rep are very accommodating and helpful - this makes all the difference before and during the rental.
This is one of the best villas weve rented - well certainly be returning.
Trine from Stavanger
Great villa with beautiful view!
We enjoyed lazy days at the pool, late nights by the barbeque, or at the lovely port of Duquesa. The closest beach was not all that, but we loved Havana beach in Estepona!
Being that the house was suitable for 10 persons, we found it a bit strange that the dining room table only included 6 seats. We were therefore unable to enjoy breakfast together.
The Full 24 hour security was disconnected during our stay, and most of the outdoor lights did not work.
Despite this, we would definately recommend this villa to our friends and family!
About the owner
Hi - We live in Scotland where we are involved in a number of successful businesses. The Costa del Sol was our obvious choice of where to build our dream holiday villa because of the short journey from the UK, easy access to flights, the bright skies and lovely sunny climate and as many of our family and friends are keen golfers, it's great to be able to play golf in shorts and t- shirts for virtually the whole of the year!
La Paloma De Manilva sits on a plateau with great views along the whole coastline from Malaga to Gibraltar. We are just a couple of minutes from a lovely, quiet beach but we are usually by own our pool with its bar and bbq area! Numerous bars, restaurants and shops can be found in either Sotogrande or Duquesa, just a few minutes drive away. Fantastic golf clubs as San Roque, Valderama and Sotogrande are on our doorstep.
