Villa Rio is situated on the Goldsmith family’s private 560 hectare estate near the traditional village of Benahavis and is a haven of peace and tranquility. It is used by the family as their guest villa and is furnished with Spanish and European antiques. Set in beautiful countryside, this is a delightful spot which benefits from the soothing noise of the adjacent Guadalmina River.
The villa is approached across a huge English style manicured lawn, ideal for a family game of cricket. The European influence is extended into the villa itself which has a charming Provencal feel to it. The bedrooms are large with generously proportioned bathrooms, with the exception of the attic twin bedroom which is reached via a steep staircase – ideal either for a nanny or two older children. The large sitting room with dining area opens directly onto the terraces and is prettily furnished and decorated with antique traditional plates and colourful splashes of colour.
Surrounded by shady terraces with comfortable terrace furniture and a large roof terrace with huge lounging day beds, there are plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The 12×7 heated pool is very private at the rear of the house and can be accessed directly from the roof terrace by a staircase or through the house.
The property comes complete with the services of a housekeeper for 7 hours per day including the preparation of breakfast and lunch.
A charming property in an idyllic location.
