About Linda & Pauline
I was born in Spain and lived there with my parents until 1994. Thereafter, I moved to Ireland with my mother but I returned to Spain each summer to spend holidays in the villa with my father until he passed away in 2002. I am married and living in Ireland but one day I would like to return to live in Spain, in my family home Chateau d'Illusion.
Linda & Pauline purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Linda & Pauline chose Benalmádena
My mother and father wanted to build their home in this area because it had beautiful views of the sea and mountains and because they loved Benalmadena Pueblo, the local village. The villa was designed and built by my parents and is furnished to their taste. I love the area as it is close to many of the main attractions on the Costa, but it's also a place to relax away from the summer crowds.
What makes this Villa unique
My father built the villa for the family and so he paid a lot of attention to detail in its construction. The property is one of a kind with many lovely features and all rooms are extremely spacious. There are several areas where one can relax and enjoy the sea and mountain views and terraces on three sides of the villa to be able to follow the sun throughout the whole day The villa is also close to public transport.

Awesome villa that we look forward to come back to
There was 15 of us, mostly couples but also individual travelers. We came to play disc golf at DiscGolfPark Mijas and travel around, we were very happy with the whole stay, the villa and particularly the location was perfect.
Some info on how to use the A/C and working jacuzzi would be nice, but I am really trying to come up with some flaws now. We were 95% satisfied.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I will look into leaving information / instructions for the future. Thank you for that advice.
Beautiful spacious villa
Family of 11 from ages 9 to 72, all had a wonderful time in this amazing property. Lots of space, the pool was used all day every day. In fact the 4 kids would have been happy to stay there the whole week. We had a bbq one night and gas bbq big enough to cook lots of burgers and kebabs at the same time. We enjoyed 2 dinners out at blankko a 15 to 20 minute walk away. We didn't have a car but used uber's which were quick and efficient. I arranged shopping to be delivered through Linda's account and although the order wasn't correct andrea was very helpful in sorting it out. We were able to check out late on our last day which was greatly appreciated as our flight wasn't until 10pm. It was lovely to relax on the terrace with kids in the pool on our last day. Thanks Linda for the late check out.
A great Villa
A great Villa which was very spacious and clean, the views are fantastic. Ideal for large families or groups. I would highly recommend
Went for a large family 50th, pool excellent size, lots of space
Pool was excellent, quite big in comparison with over villas, lots of terraces to relax from and a garden. Games room so much fun for the evenings and villa pool not overlooked by anyone, great views from the main terrace.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm very happy that you enjoyed your stay at the villa.
Perfect villa pool jacuzzi and setting ideal family trip
Perfect holiday had by all ages not to far from centre of everything but you do need taxi every time. All in all great holiday kids and adults loved the pool and the size of the villa. Clean and functional villa. only two minor things that didn’t effect the holiday where jacuzzi was leaking and the technician didn’t turn up to fix it but you could sit in it and enjoy the heat. Secondly which is just a thought not really an issue, off the balcony there is a stunning view but part blocked by the top of the tree in the garden 😊 thank you for a perfect holiday
