Málaga Province | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8
Rates: from £4,232 per week
Set on a hilltop, with grounds sloping away on three sides, La Maroma enjoys panoramic views over almond and olive groves and the estate's own private vineyard. Passing through the leafy, enclosed courtyard, with its trickling fountain and shaded pergola, with the majestic peak of the Maroma Mountain above, guests will quickly discover a haven of peace and tranquility. As part of La Maroma Estate, the villa can be booked together with La Caceria Lodge for a total occupancy of 14 guests.
The cortijo (a Spanish farmstead) has been newly renovated in rustic-chic style to provide modern luxuries and comfort, but still maintains the traditional Andalucían architecture of its heritage. The interior design has been carefully planned using feng shui principles and sympathetic to local custom, featuring many Spanish antiques and locally made hand-crafted furnishings. Touches such as hand-stitched Suzani tapestries above the beds lend elegance, while the many private indoor and outdoor lounges, terraces and pool maximize the relaxation potential and take full advantage of the surrounding views. Outdoors, a variety of private terraces, dotted around the property, along with formal and informal gardens full of Mediterranean and exotic plants and trees, add to the overall sense of space and relaxation. The two homes on the beautiful hilltop private estate, La Maroma and La Caceria Lodge, are close enough to be enjoyed together by larger groups, though both are walled in and separated by about 100 metres of mature gardens for privacy apart.

This terrace shares a door with the adjacent drawing room terrace, a large, open (shaded) terrace with views to the sea and an oversized open fireplace.
- The attached drawing room shares the chimney for an indoor/outdoor fireplace, creating the appearance of a combined indoor/outdoor living space. The drawing room with pantry and fridge is decorated with Spanish antiques and a Chesterfield sofa for a sophisticated wind down at the end of the evening.
Well-being is taken seriously at La Maroma.

Furthermore, La Maroma is proud to present an exciting new experiential travel opportunity: the “Gardens & Gastronomy” tour of Andalucia. This cultural and culinary package pairs tours of some of Andalucia’s oldest, most impressive and important gardens with gastronomic explorations to highlight the culinary influences of Andalucia’s three historic cultures.
Included in the gardens tour are the Generalife at the Alhambra, the Alcazar gardens at the Palace of the Catholic Kings in Cordoba, La Concepcion botanical gardens in Malaga and a unique once-a-year opportunity to tour the lush and colourful private courtyards of Cordoba. La Maroma will also recommend local walking tours and offer a personal tour of the gardens and landscapes of the private country estate. The hosts at La Maroma will also present recommendations for restaurants in each of the garden touties, wir cith tips on specialty dishes representing the city and their origins from Moorish, Christian or Jewish culinary traditions.
Finally, we recommend a stay at La Maroma during harvest time. Food is really at the centre of much of what is done at La Maroma, where the next feast is being planned as the last one concludes. The harvest time in La Axarquia is therefore especially exciting, so we have outlined a sample itinerary and inclusions for a harvest holiday at La Maroma. Moreover, depending on the exact time of year, we can arrange for you to take part in the grape or olive harvests alongside the professionals.

“La Maroma was just amazing and in a really beautiful location. Our four year old son had no problem negotiating the property or pool and my dad managed well on the steps with help. The chef Davide is quite a find; our meals prepared by him were just wonderful. We looked forward to his creations the nights he cooked.”
La Maroma as part of the La Maroma Estate is set on a private hilltop, accessible by scenic and sometimes narrow and winding but paved mountain roads between the two nearby villages.

The finishing touches
Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat?

These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.
