Luxury villa, Gran Hacienda Florentina, Marbella

The largest in our privately-owned collection, this newly constructed, ultra-luxury €7m, 7-bedroom villa is superbly located in a prestigious west-Marbella hilltop estate, just 10 minutes from the coast’s best beaches, Puerto Banus, and Marbella. With stunning panoramic views, Hollywood-style cinema, heated infinity pool, high-speed internet, Jacuzzi, night club with bar, lights and lasers, games room, and a fully-equipped gym, unsurpassed luxury and limitless leisure await you. Sleeps as standard 16, but can comfortably sleep up to 26

You know you have entered a very special property
Set within lush, beautifully landscaped gardens, abundant with tropical plants, palm trees, fruit trees and fragrant exotic flowers, as you park under the vaulted 50 sqm meter entrance canopy, and enter the villa through double antique wooden doors you know you have arrived at a very special property. Immediately, you are drawn into the magnificent living room which is a sweeping 14m long, and features an impressive 6m high wooden beamed ceiling. It is entered via an elevated stone walk-way thus giving the villa a real sense of space, light, tranquility and calm – ready for your luxury holiday to begin.

Several outdoor terraces wrap all around the villa inviting you and your guests to gather and relax on a selection of cozy outdoor sofas and sun loungers, as well as to enjoy the large outdoor Jacuzzi. The stunning private infinity-edge pool creates the impression that the water extends right into the surrounding landscape and is the perfect place to spend lazy afternoons.

Lastly, once guests have gathered for the evening, half of the room turns into a nightclub, complete with full wet bar, two fridges, and the latest sound system where you can plug in your MP3, iPhone or iPod. To add the finishing touches there is a full range of professional lighting including ‘beat activated’ multi-coloured and laser lights, strobe, spinning mirror ball and multi-coloured spot lighting to really get your party started.

" It was hard to return to the UK after such a special week "

What can we say - the 2 villas we occupied in Marbella (October 2nd to 9th) were absolutely fantastic - real luxury. We had a wonderful week culminating in Leah and Chris's wedding on October 7th where everybody had a brilliant day. It was hard to return to the UK after such a special week, and the temperature difference on arriving back in Manchester was a real shock! Thailand next time??!

" Gran Hacienda Florentina once again has taken our breath away "

Gran Hacienda Florentina once again has taken our breath away. Stunning and beautifully furnished Villa which has everything you could need for your stay, the kitchen is well equipped. More than enough room to accommodate 22 of us. The beds were so comfortable and huge! The villa is in a great position with stunning views across the valley watching the sunrise & sunset was magical. Loads to do without having to leave the villa with the amazing cinema room (this was a hit with everyone) the pool was stunning and the games room was well equipped we even had a party so the disco lights came in handy.I must say how wonderful the staff were, polite and helpful and kept the villa immaculate and well maintained as well as helping with some food preparation. They're an asset to the company and really made our holiday more relaxing because of all their help.

" One of the nicest properties we have had the pleasure to stay at "

Having stayed at many 5 star hotels and properties - I would say this house is definitely one of the nicest properties we have had the pleasure to stay at. Security on holiday is for me very important to be able to relax and this house is very secure with its gates and security staff. The property is beautifully clean and the pool area gets the sun first thing in the morning thought to last thing before dusk. Everything in the property worked with all the televisions in good working order and the cinema with multi level couches was a big bonus for our student children and guests who watched many late evening films during our stay. Excellent kitchen and additional drink fridge which made bulk buying easy for water, refreshments etc.

" I cannot speak highly enough of every aspect "

***** Rating - Myself and 14 friends rented Gran Hacienda Florentina from 25th June through to 2nd July 2016 and I cannot speak highly enough of every aspect, everything from our shopping being in the fridge and cupboards upon our arrival to infinity pool, bedrooms, outside dining area with BBQ and jacuzzi (and great views), games room and cinema room (which the pictures on the website truly do not do justice to the actual size of the projected screen).. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough.. I must also mention the staff at the villa who are lovely people who quietly got about their business on a daily basis and we all found them extremely patient and very helpful.. Thanks also to everyone else who helped make our stay at your Villa so entirely painless and memorable..

Daniel Cooney - July 2016

" All games room and villa facilities are top quality "

Myself and a large group of friends stayed at Gran Hacienda Florentina mid May 2016 and had an amazing time. We were only there for 5 days however unfortunately for us the first 3 days we had rain. Even though it was raining there was so much for all 16 of us to enjoy and we didn't even really notice the bad weather! All games room and villa facilities are top quality! Towards the end of our stay the weather picked up so we had a chance to enjoy the lovely views and outside facilities. We would all definitely love to go back in the future!

Paul Salter - May 2016


" We spent a memorable long weekend with extended family of 18 persons to celebrate a 60th birthday! "

We spent a memorable long weekend with extended family of 18 persons to celebrate a 60th birthday! An experience they will never forget. All facilities of this amazing villa were extensively used by young and old ! I Can recommend also the “Chefservice “ for a great paella. We will come back and as the villa can take more people very comfortable I told my kids to “go and multiply “ all the best Marc.

" Everyone had a fantastic time and the villa is amazing "

I just wanted to email you to thank you for all your efforts in making sure we had a great time in the villa. Everyone had a fantastic time and the villa is amazing. Julia from the chef services is outstanding... she is one of the loveliest women I have ever met and works so hard! She is a fabulous asset to the villa. She went out of her way up make sure everything was good. I have to say it is probably some of the nicest food we have ever had. We are already planning our trip back. Thank you again.

Amanda Addy - Jan 2016


" With a private location this villa provides the perfect accommodation for a relaxing holiday "

With a private location this villa provides the perfect accommodation for a relaxing holiday. It is well equipped for both outdoor enjoyment and indoor entertainment (the movie room is great). Everything was clean and well prepared for our stay. The staff are very accommodating and make the stay so easy. We really enjoyed our time there.

" We had the most fantastic week staying at Gran Hacienda Florentina in June "

We had the most fantastic week staying at the Gran Hacienda Florentina in June. There was 28 of us for my parents 25th wedding anniversary and not one person had any complaints! The villa was beautiful and the views were amazing. We would definitely be coming back here if we get a big group together again!

Patrick Gray - June 2015


" Well, what can we say! "

We are still on cloud 9 after staying in Villa Gran Hacienda Florentina. We had 2 days to enjoy the villa before our wedding was held in the stunning gardens on the Saturday. The calmness of the villa was perfect. We had a fabulous BBQ the night before the wedding and with 17 adults it still felt spacious! I was worried we would need to hire a car and this is not something we have done before, but it turned out days at the villa were filled with time around the pool, catered meals, table tennis, pool table and music in the games room, we didn't need to leave! For some a taxi was 2 minutes away to go and explore the area. The staff were so attentive, helped with all we needed while still respecting our privacy.The wedding was PERFECT! we couldn't ever imagine having our day anywhere else. If you want something special and intimate this is the place, we had 34 guests and it was just right. This villa gave us more than we could have ever hoped for.... I'm frustrated writing this review as words cannot explain the feeling we have about this amazing place! Thank you!

" All my family wanted to say thank you for one of the best experiences they have ever had "

This is now the end of Day 3 back in the real world, and I am finding it somewhat easier to cope with than I had anticipated. After 2 years of planning and lots of emotional conversations with your kind selves, both myself and David were finally married just 2 weeks ago. The Blessing took place in the grounds of Gran Hacienda Florentina. It was an intimate event, ministered by my Uncle - in undoubtedly one of the most beautiful homes we have ever had the pleasure to reside in! Marvellous design and architecture, decorative features and lovely luxurious furnishings....the bath was a god send on the first night!! Much thanks must go to Gusto Marbella/ ULVR chefs for their support prior, during and after one of the most important days in both mine and my husband's lives. The day fell right in the middle of 'The Iberian Sizzle' - despite the heat, the presentation of the ceremony did not suffer, the drinks were kept flowing and the FOOD served was truly outstanding! More thanks must go to your villa staff for their hard work in making us feel so relaxed and comfortable from start to finish, they really are a credit to you. All my family wanted to say thank you for one of the best experiences they have ever had. Especially on behalf of my aunt, who has been living with cancer now for more than 9 years - she was able to enjoy the morning sun, wonderful views and once even the jacuzzi!! Apart from trying to figure out the light sequence in the kitchen I got a little confused trying to turn these off one night -everything was perfect!! Thank you so much!! The family are already talking of a bigger family return again for a longer stay possibly adding San Pietro to the mix. And my husband

Teresa Campbell - May 2015


" We had a very nice stay at the villa "

We loved the outside dining table and enjoyed sitting as a family for lunch however in the cooler time of the year a patio heater would be a very welcome asset! The quality of the kitchenware was very good and the kitchen was immaculate. The children enjoyed the games area downstairs and the cinema room – it was very good to have the large selection of films. The housekeeper was very helpful and friendly and made our stay very pleasant. Thank you!

Linnet Lees - April 2015


" Thank you for an outstanding conference "

Thank you for an outstanding conference at la Gran Hacienda Florentina. Our clients had a simply exceptional time with the villa going beyond our expectations.

" The villa was stunning with many different facilities to keep us all occupied and entertained "

Our stay at Gran Hacienda Florentina was a very enjoyable experience. The villa was stunning with many different facilities to keep us all occupied and entertained. Of particular interest was the cinema room - with over 1800 films to choose from it was a challenge trying to agree on a choce !! The villa staff were expecially welcoming and friendly, there were over 18 of us and they dealt with all our individual demands with great patience an professionalism. I would highly recommend this villa for a large group, you will not be disappointed.

" I would highly recommend this property "

The beginning of this year, our family decided to take my mother in law back to her homeland in Spain 22-28 June 2014, to visit relatives one last time as she is getting older and suffers from Alzheimer’s. This idea turned in to a memorable family reunion between ten Floridians and ten Spaniards. The problem became where to meet and how to accommodate so many people? Searching the internet, we came across a house rental property Gran Hacienda Florentina in Marbella. The house is set in the mountains with incredible views. This house easily slept 20 of us and had many amenities including a movie theater, gym, table tennis, pool, hot tub just to name a few. The property manager, was extremely helpful, and proved to be a great asset. He met us at the house, showed us around and explained everything we needed to know about the facility and what was available nearby. He coordinated our transportation on arrival and departure days to/from airport which included leaving at 4:00am on our departure day. For an additional charge, he arranged an excursion for eight of our family members to visit Morocco from 8:30am-10:30pm to ride camels, visit local markets and have authentic Moroccan tea and pastries. An extremely memorable day! Additionally, he arranged for a local chef to come to the house on our last night to make authentic paella and dessert for all of us – delicious! If you get the opportunity, I would highly recommend this property and take advantage of everything it has to offer.

" Our experience could not have been better "

My family and another have just concluded our 13 day stay at Villa Florentina and our experience could not have been better. The home itself was new, nice, clean and SPACIOUS!! The daily cleaning staff were very hospitable and very efficient despite our having 2 families plus our nannies in the house. As can happen with any large, complex house, something went wrong (the movie room projector went out during our stay). What was impressive is that it was remedied/replaced within 24 hrs. to our immense satisfaction.Hessel and his team did everything to make the home and our stay a 5 star experience and based upon my positive experience here, I will be renting one of the companies related Villas in Thailand when we next vacation there.

David Miller June 2014


" All facilities were second to none "

This was the second time that I have stayed in the villa (after previously visiting with other friends around 3 years ago) and it was as spectacular as I remember second time round! All facilities were second to none, from the obvious stuff like the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms right up to the more bespoke features such as the pool, Jacuzzi and cinema room!The staff were on site daily to keep the villa clean and tidy and were always helpful and friendly.I cannot name one fault with the villa (nor the staff) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay…..and would definitely come back for a third time!

" I would recommend the villa to all types of people wishing to have a luxurious experience of Marbella "

I would recommend the villa to all types of people wishing to have a luxurious experience of Marbella. The villa is suitable for large groups and families alike. The location of the villa, whilst only 15 minutes away from Puerto Banus is quite and relaxing with superb views. The villa is very private. The villa can be used as a relaxing retreat or is perfect for large groups to party there. The cinema room and nightclub provide good entertainment. The villa is huge with many bedrooms. I would definitely return again. We hired the villa for a corporate event and all guest were suitable impressed with the facilities at the villa and high end finish to everything there.

Paul Hampson - May 2014


" I thought the villa was incredible "

I thought the villa was incredible. It was perfect for what we were looking for during our recent trip. The rooms were all clean, the bathrooms were spotless and the facilities were top notch. The pool area, sports room and cinema room were all well used during our stay. The cinema room was exactly what we wanted for watching the Champions League Final. The cleaners were polite and not at all intrusive. Personally I could not have asked for more from the villa.

Christopher Osman - May 2104


" We were all pleasantly surprised at the size of the property "

A large group of 16 stayed at Gran Hacienda Florentina for an extended weekend in early May. It is difficult to get a sense of scale from the pictures on the website – indeed, upon arrival we were all pleasantly surprised at the size of the property. The villa staff were great and did their utmost to assist with the various requests that we had, no matter how trivial. A great weekend and property all in all!

The villa was first class and we had a lovely holiday. Very well appointed, comfortable and maintained to an extremely high standard by the staff. We loved the location, near to everything but peaceful and not overlooked. The pool was perfect for us. We were a large group and the excellent layout of the villa meant we all had privacy and personal space and I could get away from the teenagers ! Good experience for me so thanks a lot and the booking experience was good too!

" We were looking for luxury for a very special holiday and we really found it "

We were looking for luxury for a very special holiday and we really found it in Florentina. We were completely looked after from the day we first called to when we left the villa by all the staff at ULVR. It was a real treat to have a chef a few evenings whilst we enjoyed a cocktail or two while enjoying the view.

Would highly recommend this company and we are contemplating a trip to Thailand perhaps next !

We had the most wonderful time, the house was spotless, extremely well decorated with classy neutral yet cosy furniture, bedrooms are comfortable with memory foam mattresses, the pool area had plenty of lounge chairs for everyone and the gym/play/night club was the kids paradise ! Not forgetting the home theatre with massage chair, luxury at its best. We received outstanding service at the villa, from the staff in the UK and the owner. Highly recommend this villa to all who wish a relaxing and fun vacation in a luxury setting.

We had a boys golfing holiday in March and it was fantastic, we had a chef to cook each evening so did not have to do anything when we returned to the villa each evening. The weather was good too so we used the pool and jacussi each day to relax.

The staff were great and made us feel very welcome.

" Best holiday in a long long while"

We have just been on a holiday to Gran Hacienda Florentina, and have to say it is just as fabulous as the other two properties here that we have visited before. The villa is furnished in a contemporary style entirely suited to it, complete with infinity pool and games room. It is just fantastic for a large family get together as it suits both adults and the little ones. Best holiday in a long long while.

" Dream Villa Holiday"

We were very happy with our stay here. No negatives, in fact the opposite. This is my second visit and this villa really has it all. Luxury bedrooms and bathrooms. heated pool, outstanding living areas, lots of terraces, fantastic views, real life cinema room (it is much better than my local cinema), games room, gym, sauna, jacuzzi etc. The list just goes on. Even the equipment in the kitchen was all professional quality and extensive - perfect for entertaining. Evening meals and BBQ's spent on the terraces will stay with me forever. Highly recommended...... James, Cotswolds, England. Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway

" Superb luxury private villa"

I booked for my family and two other families. I wanted something very special and to give my friends a real treat, plus make sure the kids would have fun. Gran Hacienda Florentina lived up to my expectations and my friends said it was the best holiday they had ever had. The home cinema was simply awesome. It was hard to get the kids out of there. The big entertainment room was also fantastic - we had so much fun. We used the gym, the bar and the nightclub, watched some sport, played pool and darts. The kids had things to do all the time. The views from the terraces and jacuzzi (which got used every night) were also to die for. The infinity pool was also pretty spectacular. The beach was just 5 minutes away but we went only one. We have already booked to return next year.... Martyn and Nicki, Gloucestershire, UK Recommended for: Families with Teenagers

Our stay at Gran Hacienda Florentina was superb, with so much to do at the villa we hardly needed to leave. From the fantastic terrace views to the infinity pool we were spoilt for choice. The games room and sports bar were winners with the children and we were secure in the knowledge that they were not far away and enjoying themselves so could soak up the sun with a glass of wine and relax.
With a sauna, hot tub and gym equipment on site it was like we were at our own "spa resort". Would recommend it to anyone wanting a private, luxurious home away from home holiday. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway

" Exceptional"

Gran Hacienda Florentina was superb. Our visit started on the 17th July 2009 and we enjoyed every minute of it. The property and its surrounding terraces and pool were faultless. It seems everything you wanted to be there was, from the cinema to the games room with gym.
With outstanding weather whilst we were there we could enjoy the outdoor life as it should be enjoyed. Lani and the rest of the team looked after us but were discreet and it was such a treat not to have to tidy up after ourselves during our stay. We will be back just as soon as we can.

" the villa is beautiful"

We had a lovely week at Gran Hacienda Florentina, the villa is beautiful and having had a couple of bad experiences with villas in Spain, we have rented in the Caribbean for the last couple of years as the standard was better. This time as it was our treat is was too expensive to fly everyone to Barbados so we were hoping we were not going to be disappointed. We were delighted with the standard of the villa and it was so clean, all the crockery and kitchen utensils were very good quality and you did not feel as if it all needed to be washed before use !! Our age group was from 9 - 76 and everyone had a wonderful time as the villa had so much to offer.
One little niggle, a couple more hairdryers would be very welcome. Thank you for a lovely week.

The medina also has dozens of outdoor cafes, such as those along the Terrasse des Paresseux balcony overlooking the Mediterranean. It’s only a 70 min ferry ride where you might see whales on-route too.
