About ref.1168: Villa for sale in Monte Mayor, Benahavis
The best of three worlds: Driving off the coast road leaving the hustle and bustle of the city and beach life behind, you make your way a long a road where in front of you are mountains and in a short time a feel of the countryside and within fifteen minutes you arrive at a small Pueblo called Benahavis where white houses nestle in the side of the mountain and probably one of the few typical Spanish villages that still exist close to the sea.
Benahavis is famous for its Gourmet restaurants, local hospitality and pretty drive along colour of flowers and trees, always immaculately clean, as your eyes are refreshed by the small Castle bursting with a cascading waterfall at the entrance of the village.
As we continue up the road the magnificent mountain and green forestall views are in front of us. The hills and sea below us the openness of the blue skies above, the air so clean and pure.
We have reached home uninterrupted views 360 deg of the coast from Cabo Pino, Marbella to Gibraltar and Morocco and to the North West the mountain range towards Rhonda.
The great Monte Mayor sits majestically in view.
We enter to the property through an automated gate, driving up to the house we see many palm and colourful trees, large Casares stones as walls parade the road until we pass another double automated gate and then surrounding us are a mass of colour Roses, Bougainville, Wisteria, Birds of Paradise and exotic palms, an olive tree of over 100 years old stands proudly in the centre. The sound of trickling water from the many fountains and the castles cascading water fall with Koi fish below.

The flooring is of natural Marble with underfloor heating, the wood on the upper floors were imported from Scandinavia, all windows and outer doors are of the highest standard and double glazed. The whole house has been solidly built with every circumstance in mind including a lift.

The high ceiling giving the room an airy open feel, whereby the large marble open fireplace brings the room together making it a cosy relaxing room. Large windows look out to a patio and paved pool area from where you can see Gibraltar and Morocco.
Adjacent to the lounge are sliding doors to an equally large dining room, easily seating 12-16 people. From the dining area there are beautiful views of the Marbella coast.
