Earlier this year I was invited to meet with Niki and James at a villa called Quinta Las Colinas that they had hired for their wedding here in July. As I wound my way up the picturesque Istan Road from Marbella, I kept wanting to pull over to admire the views over the lakes but I was booked for a meeting and did not have time to stop.
As I turned into the track down to the villa and wound my way towards the lake I could see what I hoped might be the villa at the bottom, it looked amazing. When I arrived there I was shown into the villa through some delightful old wooden doors and immediately fell in love with it´s pretty Andalucian inner courtyard. I love properties with inner courtyards so was immediately sold!
I was then led out to the back garden, having wanted to stop on the way up to admire the views over the lakes, I was rewarded as soon as I stepped outside into the gardens to be greeted with the most stunning views over the majestic, sparkling lakes, a truly breathtaking location.
I was hired by Niki and James to help them create their wedding decor and have to say it was such fun styling their wedding day as it just such a breathtaking place to work in, I kept stopping to admire the views all day! Niki and James had a fantastic wedding day that partied well into the night.
Fiestasol provided the delicious catering and wedding furniture, David Toms captured this wedding, we must get the proper photos to show you, Lizzie Marriage performed a beautiful ceremony, Sweet Things By Fi created a stunning wedding cake and Tristan Harper had the wedding party on their feet, dancing the night away under the stars!
We are thrilled that Quinta Las Colinas are now offering this gorgeous villa in such a stunning location as a wedding venue and in order to promote it they have become our newest shiny sponsor and we are thrilled to welcome them on board.
So let me give you some information. Quinta Las Colinas is located just up the Istan Road from Marbella at Km 9, about a 10 to 15 minute drive away from Marbella and Puerto Banus and also only minutes away from the white washed village of Istan nestled in the mountains above Marbella so you can enjoy the best of both worlds from the nightlife on the coast to a tranquil tapas in the mountains.
Quinta Las Colinas is finished to a very high standard and offers extremely comfortable, luxurious accommodation including a delightful open plan lounge and dining area furnished with cosy leather sofas, a stunning wood burning stove, an inner Andalucian style patio area, and a built in bar that is perfect for entertaining guests in the evening!
Along with the beautifully designed cosy charm this property offers, it has all the modern facilities including Sky Plus, WiFi, DVD with speakers outside on the terraces, and a fully equipped kitchen with an American style fridge.
Quinta Las Colinas sleeps 10 to 12 people with the accommodation consisting of 5 double bedrooms including a master suite with a double bathroom and secluded terrace and a tower room with a double sofa bed, ideal for teenagers.
There is a lovely full sized swimming pool on a lower level to the gardens that is perfect for a BBQ, pool party or cocktails as well of course as just lazing in the sunshine!
Quinta Las Colinas is perfect for a smaller intimate wedding party and can easily accommodate a wedding of up to 70 people in the beautiful gardens overlooking the lakes.
