The Urban Villa
Hacienda Los Canesteros no.5, Carretera de Ojen, 29610 Ojen/Marbella,
It's all very well swanning around Marbella in designer shades, doing a bit of shopping before lunch at a fabulous beachside restaurant... but where do you stay that feels suitably glamorous? The Urban Villa, of course! Up in the hills above town, with 180 degree views across the bay reaching all the way to Africa, this boutique retreat, carved into the rock, has gardens with manicured paths and terraces on various levels, plus a lemon tree, wild olive trees, cacti, bougainvillea and palms, lily pond and pool – all illuminated at night. There are just four suites, each one lavishly luxurious; 'Deluxe Urban' is the largest with a path down to the pool and a private sauna complete with those views (among the best in the Med we have seen). Each room has a private terrace and use of a guest kitchen, honesty bar and sitting room, eclectically furnished with plenty of diversions; you could form a band in the music zone with its piano, guitar, flute and bongos! Owner Linda, who honed her skills on cruise ships and private yachts, is an excellent host and a great cook: be sure to book in for dinner. You'll want for nothing here.
