Villa Sonrisa


Welcome to Villa Sonrisa, a stunning three-bedroom home represented by Exceptional Villas, the leading luxury villa rental company in the world, as supported by Trustpilot reviews. Sonrisa houses up to six guests and is located in Istan village, upon the hills of Marbella, Spain. This villa is undoubtedly a wonderful choice to unwind and spend time with those you love.

The décor at Villa Sonrisa is a perfectly balanced combination of contemporary and Mediterranean styles. It has a subdued and natural color palette with different patterns and unique artworks, adding a unique personality throughout the property. The many floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors increase the feeling of space, while the round archways help the flow of the villa. Admire the panoramic views of the mountains and dazzling sea as they are truly incredible and give you a real feel for Marbella.

The sleeping arrangements at Sonrisa consist of three spacious bedrooms, all of which have their own en suite bathroom and are located on the first floor. Each suite has double glass doors that open onto a terrace where you can enjoy a coffee and chat with a loved one or sit down and relax while taking in the spectacular views you cannot get anywhere else.

Sonrisa has a large kitchen with all you could want to prepare the perfect holiday comfort food. It is complete with a marble island that matches perfectly with the nearby dining table. This is a lovely place to enjoy a tasty snack or a chilled breakfast. Connected to the main kitchen is a smaller kitchen where you can keep things out of sight if you don’t feel like cleaning up immediately after your culinary art has been at play.

The living room at this villa is very open, complete with super comfortable furniture facing a smart TV. The cozy lighting makes this a nice spot to relax during the evenings. It provides the perfect space for playing a fun game of cards or watching a film. There is also a separate office with a printer on the ground floor; this amenity is perfect for those who need to do a little work during the vacation; it even has its own private terrace so you can still enjoy the sun.

The outdoors at Villa Sonrisa is truly the highlight of this home away from home. On the main terrace, you will find the large pool where you can enjoy a refreshing dip before heading off to some exciting adventure or unwind on one of the many sun loungers available. To one side is a curved sofa surrounding a coffee table where snacks, drinks, and chats are to be had. The other side hosts a barbeque setting that is accompanied by a more casual dining area. The terrace is surrounded by a beautiful green garden with trees that add to the privacy of the villa.

Villa Sonrisa is located in Istan village, a town of Arabic origin located in the natural park of Sierra de las Nieves, upon the hills of Marbella. Additionally, Istan, due to the beauty of the surrounding nature, is known as “Manantial (Spring) of the Costa del Sol”. Sonrisa is only a short 20km drive away from the endless golden beaches of Marbella. Within Istan, the villa is located in a cul-de-sac in a gated urbanization. This gives you added privacy as well as being such a calm area away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
