“A stunning villa!”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The problem of fake reviews has been all over the UK press in the last couple of days and I am afraid that you may not believe this one. You'll have to take my word that this one of the most stunning, elegant, well-cared for villas I have ever stayed in. The website photos don't do it justice. Everything was perfect from the beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms to the lovely pool and terraces. We ate al fresco on several evenings and then just moved over to the chill-out terrace for after dinner drinks. On other evenings we took a cab into Benalmadena Pueblo - a beautiful village with white-washed houses and loads of flowers - for tapas or dinner. I can recommend La Fuente and El Muro restaurants there but you must to book if you are a large group. Tatiana made the booking process easy and was on the end of the phone when we had a couple of glitches with the TV and the hot water. Drawbacks - some people may find the very narrow road to approach the villa a bit hairy but once you've done it a couple of times it's fine. The cockerel over the valley crows incessantly - listen very carefully and he shouts 'where's me breakfast?' most of the day. The TV has only 2 UK channels - Sky News and the ubiquitous BBC World. Still, who goes on holiday to watch TV? You're so chilled at this property that you can zone out and not even hear the rooster.
In brief, do not hesitate to book Villa Elegante.

Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a wonderful week at Villa Elegante,6 adults and 4 children(under 10 years)The villa is stunning and spacious wiith beautiful views just as advertised.Very well equipped and extras like pool toys and pool towels were very useful to us.The near by town is lovely with several good restaurants and the beach and super market a short ride away.From the time we were welcomed by Tatiana until we left everyone agreed this was a great holiday villa,some where special.

Wow!! What a perfect stay. Such a beautiful villa decorated tastefully in every possible way. Its a dream! We came out to Benalmadena to celebrate our marriage ceremony and this place was perfect for us and our many guests. Nothing and nobody to worry about while in this beautiful location...holiday bliss!! (Loved the outdoor speaker system especially!) We hope to visit again in the very near future. The owners should be very proud and Tatiana has provided brilliant trustable service throughout making the whole experience an enjoyable stay. Thank you

“Very relaxing apart from a couple of issues”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I really wanted to give this villa 10 out of 10 but alas I cannot. Before I say anything though, I think it pertinent to mention that the Agent (Tatiana) truly goes out of her way to make things as pleasant as possible. The villa is undoubtedly lovely. The living room is one of the nicest rooms I have ever set my eyes on. Sadly though we didn't spend any time in it.
When searching for a place to stay in Spain there were four levels of criteria that I seeked. First and foremost being a woman of a certain age, air conditioning was absolutely essential. Next was the covered patio, then came the BBQ as well as a non-overlooked swimming pool. There are several covered areas to laze away the hot sunny days and the villa was actually not overlooked at all. My main issues are the air conditioning which although the villas has the actual air conditioning units in every bedroom, they have been programmed not to go below 21c and to switch themselves off after about an hour of use. Now for me that's an English summer and they were definitely not cold enough. To be fair though I contacted Tatiana who arranged for a portable a/c unit and a fan which was fine for me (but sadly my guests were still too warm). I have to say that for a luxury villa (that did not come cheaply) why would you restrict the ac units simply because of costs although I was told this was because of health reasons? The other issue I had was the BBQ area. It has been very poorly designed (man made) and apart from not being able to see what you are cooking at night, it was placed in such a way that every time I used it (which was day light hours only) I burnt the inside of my arm. The lights are a bit of a challenge too. I had to ask the handy man to remove two bulbs because we simply were not able to switch them off by the light switch. This also happened in the kitchen and in the end, I realised that if you punched the light switch hard enough then the lights would eventually come on or go off. The downstairs area can sleep up to 7 people yet there is only one bathroom and one wc. This I thought was very strange. The journey up and down the hill is also a bit of a challenge but once you have done it a few times, you do get used to it. I was told that the supermarket was within walking distance, now unless there is another which I did not find it certainly isn't within walking distance. I don't want to end this on a negative the villa does have the wow factor and apart from a small farm approximately 200 yards away (where the cocks crow all day), it was very peaceful and relaxing. Would I go back? Sadly not but maybe I'm just a little too fussy (aside from the air conditioning that is).

Thank you for your review, Lisa.
It was a surprise for us that someone might expect the inside temperature of 20 degrees (instead of provided 21 degrees) in the country where the outside temperature often reaches 35 degrees or even more. Anyway, to make the Villa more friendly for these of our Guests who like it cool, the full temperature range will be available on Guests demand.
Air conditioning units switch off after 1 hour ONLY when nobody is in the room. The efficiency of all the air con units allows to cool the bedrooms off within 5 minutes after our Guests come back.
The lights: We did informe our Guest where the switch for the barbecue area is located. It is pretty easy to turn it on. Most of the switches in the house have dimmers installed. The detailed explanation how to turn lights on and off can be found in our „Villa Manual” – there are three hard copies available in the Villa.
The nearest supermarket ALDI is located 2,4 km from the Villa. To get there walking takes about half an hour. The nearest bakery is about 1,7 km. To prevent any inconveniences connected with walking in a hilly terrain and taking into consideration that we are not able to predict our Guests physical fitness, we always strongly recommend to rent a car that would give our Guests full access to all Costa del Sol attractions.
The number of bathrooms – there is one bathroom downstairs and 2 bathrooms upstairs. This information is included in our offer. We were sure that 3 bathrooms for 3 guests should be enough. Anyway, to make the Villa even more comfortable, this winter we will build an additional bathroom.
In the process of booking we always ask our Guests to fulfil a short online booking form. One of the fields to be fulfilled says: „Is there anything else we should know before your arrival?” The content of this box is very important to us because it gives us a chance to meet our Guests expectations, needs and special wishes.

“Beautiful villa that lives up to it's name!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

If you are a bit like me who appreciate nice interior almost as much as electricity and a clean toilet you have found the right place. I guess the photos speaks for themselves, but the house is reeeeeally awesome - like something you could find in a magazine. We were 4 adults and 4 children age 10-12 and we had an absolutely wonderful stay. It is certainly the perfect place to invite friends, but have in mind that there are 5 bedrooms, but only 3 toilets so someone has to share bathroom. I will also like to mention that Tatiana who is the manager of the place is very helpful and friendly. Thumbs up for this one!
