Setting

The villa is set in the hills overlooking La Quinta golf course. The hill top location and secluded garden ensures your stay will be peaceful and private. A cool breeze tends to blow up from the valley below which helps to make the mid-summer heat more manageable.

Only a few minutes drive down into the valley takes you into the centre of the coast's well known 'golf valley'. with new golf courses, bars, and restaurants springing up every year. There are plenty of opportunities here for a quiet drink or a bite to eat at reasonable prices.

Since the villa is far from the summer crowds of Puerto Banus and the Coast the evenings are usually calm and quiet and one tends to hear little more than the sounds of golf course sprinklers in the valley below.

The villa is less than 3 minutes drive from the Ronda road, which leads either down to the new coastal motorway (with fast access to Malaga, Tarifa, Cadiz, etc) or away from the coast up towards romantic Ronda which is only 45 minutes drive through beautiful mountains.

Seasonal information

Andalucia is a year-round holiday destination, but the best months to visit for a beach / summer holiday are June, July, August, and September. As the villa is located on a hilltop there tends to be a cool breeze flowing up the valley on most days, making the hot August temperatures more amicable.
