About Hacienda Madronal 2
The characterful Hacienda Madronal 2 sits in in 7000m2 of private gardens overlooking the Mediterranean, but the enviable location of this exclusive residence is only the beginning of its story.
Hollywood Actress Madeleine Carroll was instantly captivated by this whitewashed estate, nestled in the hills above Marbella. She fell in love with Andalucia, as did the villa's subsequent owners and residents, among them rock musicans, pop stars and ex-Prime Ministers.

Further Details About Hacienda de Madronal 2:
The atmosphere inside is classically stylish, yet warm and welcoming. Old antiques are preserved as a nod to the villa's past, such as the vintage typewriter that one can imagine being used to tap out old movie scripts in days gone by.
It's hard to draw your eyes away from the magnificent panoramic views that illuminate almost every space with tall French doors and windows.
The living area, library and classic games corner are finished with sumptuous furnishings, perfect for quiet Summer afternoons or jovial Winter evenings around a huge roaring fire. A balcony looks down over the gothic style dining space, with its antique stone fireplace, a chandelier and bespoke dining table with seating for 12.
The Andalucian style kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for preparation of delicious meals that can be taken indoors or out, and staff can be called upon to assist with the service of light snacks, laying the BBQ or serving breakfast on the terrace.
Outside, gardens are ripe for exploring; pathways wind through the estate where Madeleine Carroll once brought Audrey Hepburn to spend the summer, an old millstone was used by the actress to enjoy her picnics in the Andalucian outdoors.
The private pool is tiled in blue mosaic with two leaping dolphins, and can be reached down a sweeping stone staircase on the lower level of the garden.
The views from the pool are simply breathtaking, embracing the mountain scenery with only birdsong breaking the peace. It is clear to see why the owners of this fabulous villa fell so in love with this place, and we hope you do too.Get the full listing »
