“AMAZING Villa Tranquila”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and myself have now twice stayed at Villa Tranquila and could not recommend it any higher!

Michael and Javier will take care of everything.

Our first visit in March ’15 was just to relax. There are no better place for it!

Secluded and private with breathtaking views, we found everything we need to just stay at the Villa for 3 consecutive days. We bought groceries at the recommended shops, cooked ourselves, enjoyed the patio for long lunches and watched movies in the cinema room downstairs. Once we felt comfortable to let the outside world in, we took advantage of the many recommendations Michael made for restaurants and sightseeing in the area. We loved the small restaurants and shops in Benahavis (a short drive) but also really enjoyed Marbella Golf and Country Club restaurant that is just down the road from Monte Mayor.

On our second trip in September ’15 we played golf almost every day. With so many courses to choose from you are really spoilt for choice. We left the Villa early morning, played golf all day then had long lazy dinners in the area, but always look forward to returning to the tranquility of the Villa.

Next time we visit (hopefully soon) we would like to take some family along to fill the Villa’s 5 bedrooms - I can not think of a better place to enjoy with loved ones.

“Villa Tranquila is just fantastic”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed at Villa Tranquila for a week with my wife, mother in law and our baby daughter of 3 months.

The villa ha all amenities needed to enjoy the vacation to the fullest. Having the luxury of having your own pool, BBQ with family, enjoy the cinema room and the beautiful scenery of the Benehavis mountains was just fantastic.

15 min drive down the mountain and you are is close proximity to restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

Villa Tranquila really lives up to its name, could have asked for a better place to spend time with my family. Its a must for next year!!

“A perfect villa to stay at if you value quality and beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I am writing this just before I leave ~ Villa Tranquila - I am watching my wife and grown up children loving every moment of being here. A wonderful holiday which has sadly passed only too quickly. The service provided by Michael and Javier has been excellent.
Beautiful home that offers everything possible to make everyone feel relaxed and "at home"; yet aware that you are surrounded by excellent quality and comforts that make this quite simply a wonderful luxury home to spend important time with your family. Perfect.

“A beautiful villa with beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We are a family of 10 who have just returned from a week long holiday at Villa Tranquila. The villa was really beautiful, inside and outside. Very high standard of furnishings, and every high tech gadget imaginable - from speakers by the pool, to a cinema room to ice making machine and state of the art coffee machine. We were welcomed by Javier who was very friendly and showed us how to work everything - he returned on Tuesday to clean the pool, mow the lawn and just generally check that everything was going ok. He kindly reassured us that it was no bother to contact him should anything go wrong - which it didn't!
The pool area was lovely, the pool itself suited everyone, even those less sure-footed and the views around were breathtaking.
The owner, Michael, was incredibly courteous and efficient and everything went smoothly. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a secluded holiday away from the madding crowds.
A word of caution though! The journey to and from the villa is not for the faint-hearted! Our driver is a confident and competent one, but even he admitted that navigating the winding roads overlooking the valleys and mountains, was daunting. Anyone with a fear of heights may find this a little challenging. However, if you love being close to nature and have no fear of heights, then this is the place for you. We had a lovely holiday at Villa Tranquila. Thank you Michael!

“Tranquil and truly lovely”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just spent three weeks at this luxurious, well equipped villa, and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
Nestled in the mountains between Marbella and Estepona, Villa Tranquilla has truly stunning views. The villa is secluded yet you are minutes away from all amenities including the gastronomic centre of Benahavis.
The owner's understated description doesn't really do this fabulous villa justice, everything about it is five star.

“Stunning Villa in beautiful location. A home from home”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We just returned from a week at Villa Tranquila where we had a perfect relaxing break. The villa is beautiful and has everything we needed to make it our home for the week. It is about a 15 minute drive from the coast so you need to make sure you have everything you need from the supermarket before you get up there and a car with a good engine helps for the winding uphill journey!

Once there the peace and quiet and stunning views are breath taking. The facilities are second to none from the cinema room with good selection of films to the rock speakers in the garden where you can listen to music while you lay in the sunshine. We had a 7 month old baby with us and the villa was perfect for him too.

Very sad to have left and would absolutely return there. If you want to enjoy the sunshine of Marbella but be away from the hustle and bustle of the coast then this is the perfect location.

Many thanks Michael we had a wonderful time.
