When a villa in Marbella is better than the most luxurious resort

Louise Swan, December 2016 | Local News and Information

The perfect holiday is about more than simply having a luxurious place to stay—it’s about enjoying a whole vacation experience that takes you away from the stresses of everyday life and transports you into a better, more relaxing world.

Usually the above is associated with opulent resorts, but the luxurious villas in Marbella available for rent offer every kind of amenity—often equalling or surpassing those to be found in five-star resorts, but with the considerable benefit of exclusive use and total privacy.

Set in select gated communities, they include private amenities such as gyms, saunas, cinema rooms, heated pools both indoor and outside, snooker tables, tennis courts—in fact, the list of facilities within many of these havens of opulence is seemingly endless. What’s more, you will be rubbing shoulders with jet-set neighbours but need never see anyone if it is total peace and privacy you are after.

Marbella glamour

You could, for instance, opt for this beautiful beachside villa on Marbella’s famous Golden Mile. Though this property set amid a Mediterranean millionaire’s row is just minutes away from all manner of amenities, its large private grounds ensure privacy and enough space to entertain in glamorous style. Here gorgeous green lawns merge with a sparkling pool, large luxurious rooms dressed in opulent marble, a state-of-the-art kitchen, a private spa and home cinema in Marbella’s best address.

Lovers of architecture and sleek elegance might prefer this residence, which is just the setting for languid days spent in the sun. Enjoy your own pool club, exquisite modern bedroom suites and kitchen, sumptuous bathrooms and lots of style, within walking distance from the Golden Mile’s finest beach clubs.

Design your experience

“The best accommodation, however, is just one part of what goes into making the very best getaway experiences, it’s also about offering made-to-measure services that are not about a package, but which allow you to create your own perfect holiday,” says Louise Swan, co-founder of Callum Swan, one of the leading sales and rentals specialists in Marbella’s luxury segment.

“In fact, for clients who want the advantages of an exclusive villa without missing out on the services available in a luxurious resort, we offer a concierge facility to provide a seamless experience. For some, that could mean the pampering of a spa treatment or the magic of spotting dolphins and whales, whilst others prefer the excitement of motor racing or exhilarating water sports activities, but whatever your preferences Callum Swan can arrange to make your dream come true.”

It all starts with stunning properties, but from there on out the focus is more and more on service. The latter is required to be diverse, flexible and tailored to the very best experiences money can buy. “We offer a bespoke service, which often surpasses that of even the best hotels, all designed to help our clients enjoy a hassle-free holiday from the moment they arrive and during their stay right up to the point of departure.” From limousine airport transfers, booking a Ferrari or luxury yacht, reserving tables at the best restaurants and most popular clubs or hiring a personal chef for the finest dining at home to private concerts with celebrities and booking the best seats at numerous events—what is on offer is only limited by your imagination.
