Villa Lara

A filmstar’s villa full of glamour and charm in the hills of Marbella!

If you want to wake up to views to La Concha mountain, the sea and sweeping valley, but still be only 10 minutes from the partying & life of bustling Marbella, this is the villa for you.

Set in over 7000 square metres of gardens overlooking the Mediterranean, this villa was once owned by Madeleine Carroll, one of Hollywood’s highest paid female actors (The Prisoner of Zenda). It’s spacious but intimate, relaxed and refined, with hints of baronial gothic design in the dining areas, high ceilings and huge windows to enjoy the views. Truly something a little bit special.

Relax by the private 16m outdoor pool. Enjoy sundowners on the terrace. And sleep in the absolutely beautiful bedrooms, all presented with style, charm and comfort.

The master suite is particularly spectacular, with big floor to ceiling windows, 180 degree views, 4 poster king size bed and Moroccan style marble bathroom with jacuzzi tub. It’s made for you!

Villa Lara is situated at the end of a private driveway in the mountains overlooking Marbella.

La Concha, the famous mountain peak, is your neighbour and the sea views are just incredible. There’s no better way to wake up every morning than to the sound of birds and these views.

The lovely Spanish town of San Pedro de Alcantara with its long beach promenade, bars, cafe and restaurant life is just down the road! Well worth a visit.

There’s plenty of Andalusian charm to be found in the historic quarter of Marbella which is a short drive away, with bars, coffee shops, cobbled winding streets, flower strewn balconies, great restaurants and boutique shops.

For a day out, head to Estepona (the garden city of the Costa del Sol) to enjoy the many shops, bars and restaurants. It has a great 3 mile blue flag beach and chiringuitos (beach bars with fresh fish grilled over charcoal) all along the promenade. Wander the Old Town bedecked in flowers along its cobbled streets. During the summer there is a huge programme of free music, dancing, markets, art and much more.

Puerto Banus is a 10 minute drive away, and add another 5-10 minutes for Marbella.

Malaga Airport is a 45 minute drive from the villa.
