Why Denise Everall chose Benahavís
Having spent many years of experiencing memorable trips to Andalusia, we finally decided to have a base in the region and a place we could call a home-from-home, a place where we could enjoy near guaranteed sunshine. We spent months looking at all types of properties from renovation projects to new-builds, and just when we decided to shelve our plan we were shown the strikingly different and exciting development of Tee 5. We promptly secured our interests that day and we have since enjoyed 14 years of fabulous holidays with friends and family!

Fantastic location for a peaceful break, short drive to anything you need and far enough away for peace. Lovely pool that was usually only our family using.
Would certainly return, and hopefully we will.
great property. location
Property very nice, very comfortable, nice pool, great location.
if I am being picky, I felt that we were the first in for summer as although fresh beds, towels etc, but the kitchen wasn't spotless or the floors and balcony all quite dusty?
I think it would be nice to have a small welcome pack on arrival, we were rather hot and tired on arrival and it would have been nice to have had some water at least in the fridge, there was some left over tonic water we found thankfully.
Fantastic apartment with lovely views
Great trip to Spain, fabulous weather- the apartment is stunning and very comfortable . Great location, short drive to Puerto Banus and Marbella. Perfect
Tee 5 is an hour from Malaga Airport and 45 minutes from Gibraltar Airport, both served by frequent flights from the UK. Our apartment is 15 minutes away from Marbella, 10 minutes away from Puerto Banus and within moments of the coastline. Although it’s possible to reach some places on foot, such as the shops and the beach, it is essential to have use of a car during your stay as the terrain is hilly and becomes arduous to tackle in the heat of the sun.
Nearby, Marbella features the Golden Mile featuring a lovely landscaped boardwalk which is happily shared by strollers and cyclists alike, and is dotted with cafes and restaurants to order cold sangria or beachside tapas. At the end of the boardwalk lies Marbella Old Town, an ancient walled city retaining the same layout as in the 16th Century, and being car free makes it a perfect environment to explore the history of the town and sample its impressive range of cafes and restaurants that offer everything from tapas to fine dining.
Marbella is probably the best place in Europe to come for golf, and golf lovers will be amazed at the variety of golf and country clubs to choose from. There are more than ten golf courses near the centre of Marbella alone, including the Marbella Golf and Country Club. In addition, our apartment at Tee 5 is right at the heart of the four golf courses within the Villa Padierna Palace hotel, including two 18-hole championship golf courses. The original course, the Flamingos Golf, is on the short side at under 5,800 meters from the back tees, but has still played host to Spanish senior tour events and ideal requires a buggy, especially in the heat of summer. The newer course, the Gran Flamingo Golf Club, is set farther back into the mountains and features some very dramatic terrain to navigate the golf ball around. It's much longer, playing 6,641 yards, and many fairways are cut tightly along steep mountain grades. The par 3s are all very long with plenty of pitfalls around them. The Gran Flamingo is set farther back and is not in view of the Mediterranean Sea at most points, but the 18th hole is perched high above the coastline and offers spectacular views of The Rock and Morocco in the distance. The Villa Padierna Palace hotel is the centerpiece of all this action. and it’s the the perfect to end a round of golf will a well-earned lunch or a drink on the terrace.
Our apartment is within striking distance of the major historical sights of the coast and Andalusia.
Ronda is situated within the province of Malaga, and has a deep gorge running through the middle of it. The 250 year old Puente Nuevo bridge connects the two parts of the city, connecting the old town to a relatively newer one. Both sides of the town have notable monuments but the must-see is the Plaza de Toros de Ronda, the oldest bullring in Spain, famously celebrated by Ernest Hemmingway who learned to bullfight here. The bullring is still in use, occasionally, but it now has the chief purpose of being a museum for all things dedicated to the sport.
Puerto Banus can be reached 15 minsutes or so from Tee 5. Although compact, Puerto Banus offers an amazing wealth of facilities and attractions, including European Blue Flag beaches on either side of the yacht-filled port, a myriad of restaurants and bars, water sports, golf, a casino, cinema and an incredible host of designer boutiques with an enormous El Corte Ingles department store, a cross between Selfridges and John Lewis. Puerto has an undeserved reputation of being a glitzy millionaires’ playground, but a visit during the day will prove that it has much more to offer.
White Towns - the historical and Moorish White Towns of Andalusia, or Pueblos Blancos, are a series of towns and large villages within the provinces of Cádiz and Málaga in southern Spain, mostly within the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. All of the villages are characterised by whitewashed walls and are mostly situated on hillsides.
Cadiz - despite its unique site—on a narrow slice of land surrounded by the sea‚ Cádiz is a typically Andalusian city with a wealth of attractive vistas and well-preserved historical landmarks. The older part of Cádiz within the remnants of the city walls is commonly referred to as the Old Town, and has been often used as a Havana stand-in by film crews.
Granada - rich in history and culture, Granada is arguably the single most worthwhile city in Spain for visitors. In addition to a rich multicultural history, and Moorish and medieval monuments, an authentic Spanish driven nightlife, and skiing and trekking in the nearby Sierra Nevada, Granada offers a break from the summer heat of other Andalusian cities such as Córdoba or Seville. The world-famous Alhambra is also located here, a medieval palace and fortress complex which became an UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984.
