Just what we wanted after a particularly stressful 6 months. Relaxed above and away from the bustle of Marbella during the day and drove 10 minutes down the hill into the town for dinner.

This is a hidden gem, was worried about getting there being up hill but it was well worth it; great food, beautiful views and attentive staff. I will be coming back for a yoga retreat in November, couldn't think of a better spot for it!
