Situated seven minutes west of prestigious Puerto Banus, near Marbella, Costa Del Sol, Spain, El Presidente is a very quiet beach front estate of white luxury apartments and villas in the ornate Moorish style, well set back from the main roads and set in exceptional park-like tropical grounds of palm trees and lawns, with many fountains and ornate pools. There are five swimming pools, one of which is heated in cooler seasons, and four tennis and two paddle tennis courts, as well as golf practice driving nets. Nearby are a number of restaurants and shops just a short walk away. Nothing but a small strip of woodland separates the property from the beautiful but quiet beach, which also has three beach bar/restaurants within a short walk.
Our penthouse apartment is not overlooked in any way- one side overlooks the lawns and pool, and the other looks out over the wooded estate towards the sea and mountains. On the upper level is a furnished roof terrace reached from the living room by a spiral staircase- a great place for sunbathing or a drink while watching the sun set over the mountains, and you may even see Gibraltar across the sea on a clear day. The main level comprises a very spacious and fully equipped living area (video, CD player, UK satellite TV etc) with lounging and dining for six. For outdoor eating, a fully furnished terrace opens off the living area, with views over the nearby pool and lawns.There is a large fully fitted granite/tiled kitchen with all usual appliances including dishwasher, plus two large bedrooms. One bedroom has a king size double bed and the other has two singles, and each bedroom has it’s own small private Juliet balcony with pleasant views of woodland and mountains, and each also has an en suite marble bathroom. The apartment is automatically heated and air conditioned, flooring is marble with rugs throughout, and furnishings and equipment are of a high standard including a good quality sofa bed for additional sleeping, so the apartment sleeps six.
Being as far south as you can get in mainland Europe and so close to North Africa, the weather is reliably rain free and hot in summer, and many people say that the shoulder seasons, being just a little cooler, are especially nice- and travel to the area (and playing golf here) is particularly popular at these times. Weekly cleaning is included, and our management company representative is available at all times to help make your holiday more enjoyable.
The Marbella region of Andalucia’s Costa Del Sol is centered around the towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus, and is renowned not only as Europe's golfing capital but also as a particularly prestigious and up-market resort area on the coast between the mountains and the beautiful beaches in the southern-most part of Spain. Close by the beach are expensive developments of villas and apartments, while the valleys running up to the mountains are filled with beautiful golf courses. There are over 30 golf courses in the nearby area, one of them just five minutes away, and several tennis ranches in the valley. Above the beautiful sandy beach, the promenade here is the place to see and be seen. Nearby Puerto Banus is based around a harbour full of the world’s most exotic yachts, and the waterfront is lined with lively restaurants (usually €19 for three courses)and bars where you can often spot the rich and famous who like to holiday in this area. The town is renowned for its night life, and you can even do your shopping past midnight! In the other direction towards Gibraltar from El Presidente you will find the lovely beaches, marina and very Spanish town of Estepona.
The apartment is just 40 minutes by motorway from Malaga international airport, which has regular approx. two hour low cost direct flights to most of Europe, and within easy day trip range are Seville, Cordoba, Cadiz, Gibraltar and a 45 minute drive and 30 minutes on the ferry even takes you to North Africa! Marbella town itself has often been described as the St Tropez of Spain, and has a historical centre of quaint little lanes and shady marble paved squares full of pavement cafes, as well as exceptional and good value shopping, and with all major designers well represented. We can perhaps arrange a car if you have one for us to use.
