At first sight, Casa La Concha seems like a very nice large villa in an up-market part of Marbella. Step through the little gate though, and it is like a tardis as the full grandeur of this gorgeous boutique hotel is revealed. Owner Marie-Helene has taken her lovely old Andalucian finca and created a little hotel that oozes exclusivity, quality and style.
The accommodation is comprised of suites and a group of little casitas stacked in higgledy-piggledy fashion around the main house. Each one reflects the touch of Marie-Helene's own hand as she has applied the Provencal style of her native France. There is space a-plenty, as well as all the modern necessities of the 21st century. The cottages even have their own private patio.
Of course outdoor living is key on the Costa del Sol, and the large gardens of Casa La Concha are pure delight. Reflecting again the owner's eye for style, the informality of the garden makes it a riot of banana plants, bougainvillea, lawns and seats and little nooks and crannies. For those who don't want to take the walk down to the beach, there is a large swimming pool (salt, not chlorine!) surrounded by an ample sun-bathing terrace.
The position of Casa La Concha seems nearly unbeatable. On the one side are the sea views, and on the other the view of the La Concha mountain that gives the hotel its name. Beyond the ample garden is one of the most exclusive parts of Marbella, the Golden Mile, where nearly all the properties are as individual as Casa La Concha. It's only about a mile to the nearest beach, or about twice that to the centre of the town.
Oh yes, this is real quality and exclusivity. Marie-Helene has created something that transcends the normal limits of luxury.
