Villa Esmeralda with heated pool and sauna in Salobreña is located near the beach (less than 5 minutes in car). The villa has magnificent sea views. The villa is set on a plot of 1,200 square meters. It is very private and not overlooked. The villa has everything you will need to relax and enjoy regardless of what time of year you choose to visit. In addition to the heated pool and Finnish sauna, both sitting rooms have wood burners. There is central heating throughout and air con. You will love the colorful garden. There is internet access and TV with international channels. The villa has a separate apartment, which is accessed internally and externally. This villa is ideal for those who like walking because there are hills and beautiful walks right out the front door. This villa is south facing, therefore it enjoys the sun all day long.

Upon entering this precious villa you will be amazed by the spectacular sea views and the light. Just being in the spacious, open plan living/dining room with its double height, vaulted ceilings is a treat. To the south there is a wall of windows offering fabulous views of the Mediterranean and to the west there are French doors that allow you to enjoy the garden from inside. There is space to sit outside here in the garden and there is a table and chairs as well. This is a nice spot for breakfast.

On the entry level of this villa you will also find a fully equipped kitchen with great views, a bedroom with twin beds as well as a bathroom. This bedroom is ideal for anyone with mobility issues as there are no steps and the entry to the house is completely level.

Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms with king size beds and each with an en suite bathroom and one with a large terrace. Both bedrooms have great sea views. 

On the lowest level of this 3 storey villa there is another large open plan room in Arabic style with a wood burner. Part of that room is shielded as a bedroom with a double bed. On the same floor there is a sink and shower. There is also a guest apartment, that has a double bedroom, en suite bathroom, sitting room with sofabed for two extra guests and a kitchen.  The relaxing Finnish sauna is also on this floor.  

Due to the design with the bedrooms spread out over 3 floors, this villa is ideal for multiple families sharing a holiday together. There are large spaces where everyone can be together, but when people want time on their own they can easily find a private spot on one of various terraces or in the garden.

The pretty, free form swimming pool is located off of the lower level. It is surrounded by a large, sunny terrace. The views from the pool terrace are truly breathtaking and the terrace enjoys sun all day long as the villa is due south. You can see both the sunrise and sunset from here. There are comfortable sun loungers so you can sunbathe comfortably and a table and chairs, as well as good quality, gas barbeque.

Villa Esmeralda is located on the very nice hillside urbanization Alfamar. The urbanization has a recreational area with a large pool and a tennis court. Our guests have complimentary use of these facilities. The tennis court is open year round and the communal pool in July and August. 

This villa is located in the south of Spain, near the charming coastal town of Almunecar. Almunecar is known for its beautiful and varied array of beaches as well for its old town, daily fresh market and great restaurants. There is a very laid back and relaxing feel to Almunecar, so it makes perfect place to holiday.

The beach, restaurants and shops are less than a 10 minute drive away. There is an easy access to Malaga, Granada or Almeria airport. If you can manage yourself away from this marvelous villa, there are lots of things to see and to do: the ski area of the Sierra Nevada where you can also enjoy great walking and hiking is less than 75 minutes away, so you can ski during the morning (from December to April) and relax on the beach or at the pool in the afternoon. There is a golf course 10 minutes away that is located right on the beach. The picturesque mountain villages of Las Alpujarras are nearby as well as the wonderful cities of Granada with the world famous Alhambra Palaces and Malaga with its historic downtown, the cathedral and the Picasso museum.

Salobreña benefits from the subtropical microclimate with over 300 days of sunshine a year and average temperature of over 20 degrees C. For those interested in sightseeing art, architecture and history this region offers the best of what Andalusia provides. You will be charmed and overwhelmed by the beauty of the region. Small white washed villages on the top of the hills, tropical nature, sounds of flamenco and of course the richness and variety of the Spanish food.

If you are looking to spend your holiday in a family friendly, spacious villa with panoramic sea views and lots of privacy we are happy to welcome you!

A Beautiful Villa

19 September 2023 | Rachel (EN)

A beautifully appointed villa, extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen which was great to cook in. Lovely gardens and pool. We had a super week’s stay here and would definitely return. Villa Colorés were probably one of the best rental companies I have ever dealt with, just excellent.

We didn’t dislike anything, the only comment (which is just our personal idea) is that it would have been nice to have had the barbecue up near the top terrace as we love eating at the big table in the garden in the evening and it was a bit of a slog from the kitchen, up and down to the pool area BBQ, but this is solely an opinion, we loved Esmeralda!!

Hello Rachel,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay in Villa Esmeralda and what a review! We're really happy to hear that you enjoyed everything so much, from dealing with our staff to enjoying your stay. Villa Esmeralda is quite a special place, with its beautiful mix of well-equipped interior and kitchen to the gorgeous outdoor areas, it´s the perfect place to relax and unwind. Thanks for your feedback about the barbecue, we will pass it on to the owners. 

We hope to welcome you back in the future!

Villas Colores team.

Map & surrounding area


Salobreña, dazzling and white, is situated in the very heart of the Costa Tropical, in the South of Spain. Adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea and only a one hour drive from Malaga International Airport. The landscape is made up of agricultural valleys and rugged mountains which descend abruptly into sea. This creates attractive open beaches and more importantly, beautiful hillside locations for our villas, offering marvelous views of the Mediterranean Sea!

Salobreña’s striking architecture is an impressive sight. Whitewashed houses are scattered across a small mountain, dominated by a beautiful Moorish castle, 110 meters above sea level and beautifully illuminated at night. Salobreña and its beaches are only a ten minute drive away from our villas, and most of our villas do not only have marvelous sea views, but also a georgous view of this little white town.
