A world of possibilities in El Madroñal
Built by Visconti, this luxurious villa is set in a prime hillside location in El Madroñal, enjoying spectacular, unimpeded views down a V-shaped valley flanked by forested hills where only the rooftops of widely spaced mansions can be seen.

Steps lead down to the cloakroom and the main living room, whose windows and French doors allow natural light to flow in and provide direct access to a large terrace that is partly covered and partly open.

Also on this level are a formal dining room and a stylish kitchen complete with fireplace and sitting area. The kitchen leads on to a sunny anteroom that marks the entrance to a private wing dominated on this level by a large suite and adjoining bedroom that can be used as a private office or lounge. I...
