A quiet suburb populated by the well-heeled and wealthy overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Golden Mile. You’ll need to get cabs or drive five minutes or so to get into the centre of Marbella or Puerto Banús.
The cottage interiors combine flavours of 'shabby chic' and Provençal low-key luxury - think white, low-slung sofas and over-sized throws, colourful accent cushions and off-white country-style kitchens and you’ll get the idea. The rainforest showerheads and Bang and Olufsen TVs are typical of the top-notch fixtures and fittings.
The garden’s lawns, trees and flowers are a treat for all five senses. I don’t think I’ve ever been as relaxed as when I was lazing around the large pool on a four-poster sunbed. Pure heaven.
Eating and drinking
The cottages have well-equipped kitchens, but being lazy, I'd grab a cab into Puerto Banús where you’ll find all the bars and restaurants you could ask for.
There’s WiFi in some of the cottages, so I’d ask before booking. But I’d guess you’ll be spending most of your time by the pool.
The couple that run it are perfect hosts. You’ll want them as your best friends.
Who stays there
Honeymooners and boho-minded holidaymakers seeking luxury.
As it offers something not often seen in Marbella, deals are hard to get, but it remains good value.
