Villa Especial is a beautiful, light and airy, luxuriously appointed 5 bedroom villa in a superb position in Marbella.The characterful 'old town' of Marbella is within walking distance, as are the long stretches of beach on the Marbella coast. There are few villas located within walking distance of Marbella Centre, as it is mostly apartments and hotels within this prime location. Many properties listed as being in Marbella require transport to get to the most sought after restaurants, shops, beaches and other attractions. With Villa Especial you can board a non stop coach from right outside Malaga airport (running on the half hour for much of the year), to within a few minutes walk of the property. An excellent supermarket is 200 metres walk away, and, despite the lovely suburban and residential position, with a backdrop of mounta... Read more

This was a beautiful villa and is aptly named as it is indeed special. Lovely layout with a relaxed feel. We went there over new year and had lovely weather. Loads of space in all rooms and the outdoor areas are really spacious for relaxing. I can only imagine how nice it would be in the summer. The games area...

Management response:

Thank you so much for the kind review especially as you were patient and understanding in relation to the issue we had with the pool heating. We very much look forward to welcoming you back. Catherine

Villa Especial is a beautiful and very spacious villa for 10 people. The location is very convenient for walking to a large supermarket. Some of our party walked into the Old Town but generally we opted to walk to the bus station and get taxi's to wherever we wanted to go, (the bus station is a very easy downhill walk)....

Management response:

I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the villa and that everything ran smoothly and we are looking forward to your return soon. Best wishes. Catherine

About the neighbourhood
Villa Especial is located close to mountains on one side and with pretty Marbella and sea views on the other. The mountains provide shelter and a temperate climate even in the winter months (a little micro climate in this part of the world).

One significant advantage of this villa is the proximity to the quaint old town of Marbella with it's many narrow and hugely characterful little streets which are pedestrianized and full of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. Most famous in the centre is Orange Square, aptly named as the restaurants there are shaded by orange trees. Often there will be street musicians and performers here, and in the autumnal and winter months, despite warm days, candles and fires add to the evening atmosphere.
