Anyone who lives in Marbella will either recognise Istán as one of the comparatively undiscovered gems that make living in this sunny city so inspiring – or they will have something quite magical to look forward to!

Istán is, quite simply, one of the most enjoyable places to be on the Costa del Sol and, given a sunny day and a few hours to enjoy a leisurely Spanish lunch followed by a stroll around this gorgeous place, it’s difficult to imagine that being anywhere else would be quite as nice.

Naturally, property in and around Istán is much sought after and a number of clever purchasers have invested in properties that are, to put it mildly, in need of renovation. Others have been able to build their own dream homes on plots of land that offer some of the most breathtaking views in the Marbella area.

The owner of this beautiful villa was clearly not afraid of a major project, since she fell in love with the location, bought a 12,000 m2 plot of land and proceeded to build a beautiful, traditional four-bedroom finca on the site. The size of the overall area meant that there was plenty of room for a huge garden with a private swimming pool and parking for five cars.

Hailing from Madrid, where she and her family run a busy cafetería and restaurant, the owner of this wonderful family home reveals that she was looking for peace and serenity when choosing her Andalusian retreat: “We certainly don’t get that in Madrid!” she comments.

This modern finca offers residents a wonderful lifestyle, with everything from luxurious touches like electric gates and underfloor heating to a master bedroom suite complete with Jacuzzi. If relaxation was the aim, then this has certainly been achieved.

“What I wanted was a space where the whole family could relax in peace and comfort. That was why, while I wanted some luxurious touches, what I was really hoping for was a place where the whole family could come together and enjoy themselves, without worrying about making the furniture dirty!”
