Great 5-day stay at the villa : delicious food, cosy setting, friendly staff simply all you can wish for to have a great vacation ! Linda and her staff are doing an excellent job : warm welcome - we immediately felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed the company of the other guests.

We reserved for 2 nights and stayed 3! We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite, and it was exactly as described. Large super clean bathroom. The view from every room is truly spectacular. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of cheese, meats, fruits, biscuits and eggs. Great coffee too. We used the Villa as a base to visit Marbella, and Gibralter,...

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!

We stayed at the Urban Villa over our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The weather was kind to us in March, Marbella is a beautiful town and we had some marvellous beach lunches. Our room in the Urban Villa was huge and we enjoyed the jacuzzi. Linda and her delightful staff looked after us very well - arranging...

Most beautiful stay (Relax Suite) (with sea view!), swimming pool at our door step, to wake up with view over beautiful Marbella, the sea, the mountains and even Gibraltar and North-Africa on your birthday is a rare treat.

My wife and I stayed here in July. Sadly, the visit was not a success, and there were many problems that led to us leaving earlier than planned. First impressions are of course important. Our first of the villa was a skip full of dirt in the entrance, and two workers with shovels. I do feel we should have warned...

Had 3 nights at this wonderful B&B/ boutique hotel. Everything was high quality from furnishings to service. Breakfast was always delicious and sourced locally and if you have a chance try the dinner. Finally, we stayed with two young children, which couldn't have been easier with adjoining rooms.

Perched high on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, with a view of Gibraltar in the hazy distance, the Urban Villa is worth the effort to get to. While only a brief car ride from the centre of Marbella, it's a quiet and relaxing eyrie. Your Hostess, Linda, will welcome you warmly and treat you to an extravagant continental breakfast, which...

The Urban Villa is the perfect place to stay when visiting Marbella and its surroundings! The place itself is just beautiful, very nicely decorated and with magnificent views. It is located in the mountain so it is very peaceful and quiet but at the same time you are just a short drive from Marbella Old Town and the beach. The...
