Five Casas (bungalows) and one villa
Each Casa and villa is individually styled and decorated. All have a terrace garden and superlative views, while one has a private pool. All have a kitchen for rustling up romantic dinners and a CD/DVD player for setting the mood. Internet access can be arranged.
Casa Oleandro has an outdoor bath and plunge pool for that back-to-nature kick, while Casa Adelfa has an outdoor shower.

Further afield, you'll find some nice chiringuita restaurants on the beach and plenty of dining choices in Marbella and Estepona.
Served until 11:00 on request.
Breakfast, light lunches and dinner can be brought to your casa or served poolside.
See & Do
The beaches of Marbella and Estepona are just 15 minutes away, though of course you can hone your tan poolside by the 15m infinity pool. Animal and bird lovers can spot eagles, vultures, moufflon and roe deer in the vicinity. Sports abound with tennis onsite and both golf and horse riding in the area, while Marbella has plenty of chic shopping. Further afield, Gibraltar is only 40 minutes away, while Tangier can be reached in a mere two hours by ferry.
As well as the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, DDG offers a full range of spa treatments to pamper guests . Everything from facials, pedicures, massages and hot stone therapy can be arranged. If you want to try something new you can also go for the chocolate and maple syrup body wrap....
Semana Santa (Holy Week) is one of the most important dates in Spain's calendar. Everywhere you go in Andalucia will be holding exciting (and noisy) festivals of some sort.
