During my successful stay at Xaviera’s B&B in Amsterdam, she’d informed me about
the plan to rent out her villa in Marbella Spain. Ideally to groups up to 10, so the
entire villa could come to its full use. At the beginning of the year I gathered most
of my friends and together we decided it would be nice to go as a group and check
it out for a fortnight. And so we went with three couples, two singles and Oscar the
chocolate brown Labrador. And it was bliss! The villa is situated in an amazing spot,
on the hillside of Marbella, only a 6 minute drives from Marbella’s picturesque old city centre. Villa Caprice has everything available, a truly wonderful large swimming pool with surrounding sun terrace, large sitting room, most comfortable big beds, and a great bar where we would gather for hours after dinner, a BBQ near the pool, wifi and cable TV.
A mere 50 minutes drive from Malaga airport and walking distance from Marbella's harbour and the picturesque city centre of this quaint old town.
We loved the Monday morning street market and the many inexpensive but excellent tapas bars. We had such fun and loved coming ‘home’ to the villa, as if it was ours, for that’s how comfortable it made us feels. We will be back with an even larger
group this summer when we can also make use of the lovely pool which in winter time unfortunately was too cold to dive into. . Can’t wait!
