The 4.5 year old property is situated 10 minutes from either Marbella, Nueva Andalucia or Puerto Banus, but is far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the nature reserve Sierra De Las Nieves, which is the 18,000 hectare national park that the country club has been built within. The villa sits in the shadow of the Conch Mountain with stunning views of Conception Lake and Sea Views to Gibraltar and the African coast.

ABOUT THE AREA
It's classy, it's glitzy and it simply oozes coastal charisma! Modern day Marbella is Spain's answer to St Tropez – a favoured haunt of the rich, the famous and the seriously star struck – one of the Mediterranean's premier holiday resorts.
Probably the most famous area of the resort is its seafront "Golden Mile" stretching from Marbella to the luxury yacht spotters' paradise at Puerto Banus. This stretch is where Marbella's wealth is most in evidence.
As for entertainment, Marbella has it all. There are parks and gardens to relax in, every water sport imaginable including jet-skiing, water-skiing, cable-skiing, windsurfing and sailing, deep-sea diving and sport fishing. Or how about golf, horse riding, hiking or maybe visiting a shooting club. And when the sun goes down… prepare to party! There are clubs, casinos, discos and cinemas enough to keep you entertained till dawn.
Puerto Banus is situated 3 miles west of Marbella and positioned between the Mediterranean and the mountains of the Sierra Blanca offers something for everyone. A playground for the rich and famous, Puerto Banus is the site of the largest yacht harbour on the Costa del Sol. For sunbathers there are fine sandy beaches that stretch along both sides of the harbour.
Puerto Banus, is the golfers' dream with a choice of seven top courses located within a short drive and over seventy located along the Costa del Sol. Close by is the International tennis school and the riding stables are a short drive away. For people watching there is no better place than the Port itself where designer boutiques, sidewalk cafes, fashionable restaurants and nightclubs line the waterfront promenade. It is just a few minutes drive to the beaches and nightlife of Marbella.
Next door to Puerto Banus lies Nueva Andalucia, where the villas and apartments are based on traditional Andalusian architecture and design. With massive amounts of investment in recent years, the area now has a superb infrastructure packed with amenities for all ages, and has become a definite favourite for tourists.
The bullring marks the entrance to Nueva Andalucia. It is popular for major events and has staged theatrical performances and concerts. On a Saturday morning next to the bullring at Puerto Banus you'll find a huge Flea Market, where you can buy anything from a teaspoon to a tapestry. Haggling here is great fun. We think you will agree, something for everyone!
San Pedro is in an ideal situation, just 10 kilometres west from all the sophistication and style of Marbella, yet just a few minutes drive away from the beautiful Sierra de Ronda mountain range and 20 kilometres from Estepona. An ancient farming community, once famous for sugar cane, today San Pedro is a refreshingly unspoilt pueblo with an appeal all of its own. It is a popular family destination with a beautiful cove which has recently been improved with showers installed. There are beach bars and parking. The beach is one of the few on the Costa del Sol to face west ensuring maximum hours of sunshine.
