Private Costa del Sol Escape

Far from the clutches of a touristy resort, Villa Mandarina is a lovely private respite-for-rent in the South of Spain’s Costa del Sol. Art, natural wood and batik accents spruce up a bright backdrop of whitewashed plaster walls. Our favorite spot has to be the outdoor patio, a perch from which to admire the coastline while lazing away by the pool and daybed, set under gauzy curtains.
