This spectacular villa was built to a very high standard and it features an enormous (20 meters long by 4 meters wide), heated infinity pool, which has an automatic, solar cover. With the push of a button, the cover unwinds and then you can enjoy a nice swim in this infinity pool that has built-in steps for easy access. This pool will always be warmer than a normal pool since it is clad in black mosaic tile so it attracts the sun rays. It also creates a wonderful effect as the pool and sea appear to merge together. Additionally, since the cover is solar, it heats the pool on its own at no cost (when it is on the pool); plus there is a backup pool heater so that we can guarantee you a warm pool all year. This villa also has a hot tub and sauna in the garden. You can enjoy amazing views to the sea, the Moorish castle and beach front of Salobrena, which are illuminated at night, and the mountains from throughout the villa and from the terraces and the garden.
If you enjoy cooking, then you will love this villa as it is equipped for a chef or actually for multiple chefs that can cook together simultaneously without disturbing each other. This kitchen has 2 ceramic hobs, 2 ovens, a warming oven, 3 sinks (one for cleaning, one for food preparation and one in the coffee/tea corner), 2 dishwashers, 2 microwaves, one large fridge/freezer, 2 under the counter refrigerators and plenty of counter space/work tops so you prepare meals for large groups or even for cooking classes and you can also have a place to serve food buffet style. The owners have designed this villa with great care and attention to detail. As you would expect, there is a sufficient amount of quality cook and dishware. There are 2 gas barbeques.
The main dining area has a table and chairs for 10 and is part of the kitchen. It can either be connected to the living room or closed off by large pocket doors for those times when you need separation between the 2 areas. The dining area opens onto the pool terrace, and this part of the pool terrace has a retractable awning so you can enjoy alfresco meals in the sun or in the shade depending on what you fancy. When the awning is closed, it also keeps the house cool. This part of the terrace can be closed off from the pool area making it a safe area for children to play (provided that the sliding glass doors in the living room are closed). This means you can enjoy a meal outside and not have to worry about young children getting into the pool area.
The living room features high ceilings and is divided into 2 areas. One area is the secondary dining area, where there is another table that can seat 10. This table can also be used for conferences or business meetings. There is a TV right near it so you can use it for presentations or for video conferences. In the sitting room part of the living room, there are comfortable sofas that are set around another TV and the fireplace. This TV has premium channels in addition to the basic satellite channels, and there is a Blue Ray player. The living area opens onto the pool terrace and this portion of the pool terrace has another retractable awning so again you can choose between sun or shade and you can keep the house cool. You will just love the breathtaking views over the pool to the sea and the Moorish castle that can be enjoyed from inside the villa. It doesn´t get better than this!
