Hidden among dramatic Andalusian hills, this historic villa is a former residence of pre-war film starlet Madeleine Carroll. The sprawling grounds offer mountain views, regal bedrooms, an opulent dining room, plush living spaces and a stunning full-length pool. An air of class and elegance runs throughout, with the restaurants of Benahavis and a wealth of golf clubs and beaches a short drive away.
Dating from a more refined period before the arrival of mass tourism along the coasts of Spain, Villa Lampara offers a window to a lost world of leisure. The incredible levels of space and comfort are visible from the huge grounds of the estate, which encompass towering mature trees, hidden love-seats, and a majestic flight of stairs that leads to the regal swimming pool. The villa itself is centered around the sun-trap central courtyard, which perfectly captures the old-school charm of the property amidst beautiful mosaic flooring and flowering fruit trees. A huge fireplace warms the central living room, which is tastefully outfitted with huge, welcoming couches and the finest upholstery. Complete with library and a range of view-point balconies outside, the villa has been outfitted to exacting standards, including air-conditioning and a fully modernized kitchen.
Villa Lampara can act as a glamorous retreat from the modern world, but nevertheless is excellently positioned for day-trips and outings. The scenic mountain village of Benahavis is just moments away, and offers an excellent range of fine dining and traditional Spanish restaurant options. Just to the south of the villa, some of the best golf courses on the Costa del Sol await, while both cool mountain trails and sandy beaches of the coast are all within a few minutes drive.
