Bedrooms: 8 Bathrooms: 6 Sleeps: 16
With both the bright lights of Marbella and the chic harbour of Puerto Banus just a short drive away, this magnificent eight-bedroom contemporary villa is ideally located in one of the Costa del Sol’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. Immaculately appointed and wonderfully private, the property is let complete with a live-in housekeeper/cook, leaving guests to completely relax during their stay.
With its dazzling white walls and terracotta roof, Villa Cristian’s exterior is elegant yet understated, its mature hedging affording privacy and seclusion. Benefitting from 24 hour security due to the proximity of certain royal neighbours, this wonderful residence offers guests a chance to truly escape.
Inside, sophisticated contemporary décor and furnishings are perfectly suited to the spacious, open plan design. Highly polished marble flooring and predominantly white paintwork reflect the beautiful natural light that enters through huge picture windows and sliding patio doors while large, carefully selected canvases grace the walls here and there.
The eight generously sized bedrooms are spread over three floors, with two on the lower ground floor, two on the ground floor and the remaining four on the first floor. Four are blessed with luxurious en suite bathrooms appointed to a very high specification, not least the master suite with its Jacuzzi bath, separate shower and twin washbasins. This room also boasts a private balcony overlooking the garden, a delightful spot for a peaceful morning coffee or a little stargazing at nightfall.
The main living areas are on the ground floor, including two stunning, relaxing lounges with glamorous white leather sofas and stylish Barcelona chairs. A SONOS sound system, satellite television and DVD players ensure your music and movie needs are amply met while complimentary Wi-Fi internet access means you can remain well connected with the outside world during your stay.
The beautifully presented indoor dining room provides a serene setting for an intimate dinner party, however most guests prefer to dine alfresco, taking advantage of the balmy Mediterranean climate and the property’s magnificent outdoor facilities. There’s a vast shaded terrace, complete with rattan lounge furniture, as well as a separate patio with an outdoor dining suite, both overlooking the large private pool and immaculately tended lawn.
Villa Cristian live-in housekeeper/cook is on hand to serve drinks, prepare breakfast and up to two main meals throughout your stay should you wish, and for a large party of guests holidaying together this is wonderful asset. With the villa’s delightful thatched chiringuito at the far end of the garden, however, there are bound to be some regular volunteers to play bartender and chef – who could resist a chance to sizzle some steaks or freshly caught fish on the barbecue in a setting like this?
The villa is ideally positioned for those who wish to sample the wide range of trendy bars, restaurants and nightclubs along the Costa Del Sol, while glitzy Porto Banus, with its sleek luxury yachts and upmarket boutiques, is just 4 kms away. Golden beaches and some of the area’s most famous golf courses are also close by. Staff at the villa can also provide a nanny service to ensure your little ones are looked after while you take some grown-up time out together.
For those looking for a spacious residence in which to holiday as a group or to celebrate a special occasion together, Villa Cristian facilities and location are very hard to beat.
