Lush foliage shelters and lines a gently curving cobbled driveway before the graciously rustic and old-world romantic hideaway is revealed. Splashes of colour from vibrant blooms that trail along the neutral toned façade and latticework exude warmth and beauty. Built on various levels, the Ten bedroom Mediterranean-style residence consists of the main house and the pool suite on the lower level of the sprawling grounds.

Upon entry into the main house, the walkway forks into the comfortable living area on the left and a tower of bedrooms stacked over two levels with a cosy attic at the top level, lies to the right. Wander straight along the walkway and discover the beating heart of the residence – a central patio that embraces Moorish traditions with its archways, painted mural and decorative tiles complemented by varying hues of terracotta reds and oranges with rich blues inspired by the Mediterranean Sea. This patio serves as a direct intersection between the master bedroom, master twin room, courtyard room and the kitchen.

The kitchen, designed with rustic simplicity with a skylight, fireplace and an adjoining wine cellar space, creates a warm atmosphere where family and friends can converge around the central island for good food and conversation. Fresh, seasonal produce from the market can be easily transformed into wonderful culinary creations in the fully equipped kitchen for those with a passion for cooking. Linked to the kitchen is an intimate dining room that seats up to 12 persons.

The outdoor terrace, accessed from the main entrance, the living or dining rooms, houses casual dining areas, a lounge and bar with a barbecue pit, perfect spaces for lingering over meals or drinks on sun-soaked days and cool nights. The gymnasium found at the driveway level, is fully equipped for a variety of fitness needs and faces a mountain vista.

One level below the main house, a sparkling blue heated pool and a separate hot tub invite guests to indulge in relaxation. The pool deck gracefully flows into a terrace space with a casual dining area, barbecue pit and a kitchen complete with cooking essentials for private dining moments. The pool suite, located directly below the pool deck, offers privacy with its two guest rooms and full facilities. Another level down from the pool suite leads to a garden circle riotous with flowers, magical for the exchange of vows overlooking a spectacular view of the valley and the Mediterranean Sea.

This beautiful private residence in Marbella easily accommodates up to fifteen guests, offering many evocative spaces that aims to conjure a spirit of serenity.

The bedrooms in the main house feature:
