“Very nice spot”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just came back from 10days vacation and we can highly recommend that villa. Especially Dario (Chief) did a phantastic job in all the ways. His cuisine was 5 star and no matter what we were asking for, he was always very helpful to our full satisfaction. Also Jeanette (housemaid) cleaned the villa every day very good. Thank you for taking care of our family Dario and Jeanette! Both of you did a phantastic job!

“Comfortable”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This villa was quite stunning with three out of four bedrooms having beautiful views. Hot water was a little on the sparse side. Staggering showers w eight adults makes it work, however. The house was clean and Chef Dario felt like extended family. His cooking skills were always appreciated. The outdoor amenities were delightful...good sun in the backyard in the afternoons.
Silvio was very accommodating and available for whatever our needs required.
I would highly recommend staying here while in the Marbella area.

“A wonderful holiday retreat”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful weekend at IL RIFUGIO DEI CESARI.

Silvio is the perfect host and his brother Dario is an excellent Chef. The Villa is beautiful and very spacious, well equipped and very clean thanks to the daily maid service which is included. These guys couldn't do enough for us.

The Villa is as described in other reviews and I can honestly say that I cant wait to go back there next year with the wife & kids.

I wholeheartedly recommend this Villa.

“Luxury villa with very friendly owner, Silvio, and superb chef and housekeeper”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at this beautiful villa with family and friends for 2 weeks. Our teenage kids had invited friends so although it has 4 bedrooms it comfortably slept 10. The villa is of a very high standard and very well furnished with a good music system to entertain us all during the day by the pool and in the evening.
The owner, Silvio, was very attentive and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble. We utilised the Italian chef, Dario, for several meals, he is a fantastic cook and served us some great dishes. His wife Jeanette is the housekeeper who cleaned and serviced the villa every day to a high standard.
The villa is located by the 18th tee of Atalaya golf club in a quiet location. The garden is well kept with a reasonable sized pool, a sun trap of a sunbathing area and an outside terrace to dine on.
Puerto Banus is only 7 minutes away by taxi (approx €12) or, for a quieter evening, Benahavis is the same distance and cost away.
