The urbanization of Guadalmina Baja – a quiet and exclusive corner of the Mediterranean and a few minutes away from Puerto Banus Mediterranean – hides secret magnificent villas surrounded by walls covered with flowering vines and soft palms.
Life in Guadalmina runs slowly and suggestive between walks along the beach in the quiet of dawn and siesta under large ficus benjamina trees by the edge of the pool; at night we can enjoy a fragrant walk to the Guadalmina Beach Club for dinner with friends or prepare a day in the exclusive golf course of the Real Club de Golf Guadalmina with its two 18-hole courses is an international benchmark in the world golf.
It is in this privileged location, near the Hotel Guadalmina SPA & Golf Resort, where it has been developed Domus Alba, a villa of exquisite proportions, which contains all the elements to enjoy a perfect holiday: sun, lush secret corners under the vegetation to read, privacy and above all a luxurious interior space designed up to the last detail.
It receives us with an input of rationalist style, reminiscent of the grand mansions of Miami in the early 30s, flanked by high-altitude palm trees and blue sky. Once past the threshold, the first hall glass reveals the clean lines of front facade of the villa and the spectacular patio around a sheet of delicate turquoise blue water, bordered by pergolas of wrought iron finished in light gray and beamed wood, recalling the structure of Roman villas and retaken by the great architects of the early twentieth century.
This space of comfort and recreation, consists of a living area with a seating lounge for twelve people, outside dining area on the near side to the kitchen – with direct access to it – and a building glazed as a reading and television room , twin to the entrance hall and visually connected by the pergola.
The double height spacious second hall of the main building, leads to the two bodies and the inner courtyard that make up the ground floor of the villa, which have differentiated the public and the private sphere.
The front houses two formal living rooms with four seating areas and fireplace with direct access to the pool, formal dining room with access to the inner courtyard and the kitchen, which has a casual dining area connected to the outside dining area.
The division between the public area and the room’ wing, occurs through a white interior courtyard conservatory, with a source vertical curtain on the front and a lemon tree on the far right – completed by the wide corridor that borders both salons which can be seen through its interior windows connecting the exterior and the interior in an excellent game of transparencies.

The top floor again reflects the division between public and private space; on one hand we have the rooms spread around the inner courtyard and in front a large terrace with capacity for 40 guest, sun beds area and beautiful views upon the gardens , the outdoor central courtyard and the pool.
On the back around the inner courtyard on the left end of the hall, we find a junior suite overlooking the pool with a private terrace, separate dressing room and a spacious bathroom with a courtyard and outdoor shower.
The central body houses the separate area of the master bedroom – with a grand suite configuration – is composed of a living room, bedroom, private terrace, two bathrooms – one with access to the private terrace and the other with the outdoor patio – both decorated with spectacular finishes and furniture made to measure. As unique piece, we will highlight the dressing linking the two bathrooms, fully made of wood from floor to ceiling and with many specific compartments ideal to house a complete female and male clothing.
On the far right , we find another junior suite with living area , bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom. This area is also a beautiful wooden staircase cantilevered gives access to the kitchen and serving room and the upper terrace.
