Villa La Torre is the exclusive Spanish home of the British Goldsmith family. It is an exceptionally private Estate of almost 1,400 acres situated close to the traditional town of Benahavis.

The Estate comprises an extensive and historic Spanish manor farmhouse and a more recently built guest house, both centrally heated and furnished with Spanish antiques and Mallorcan fabrics. Incorporating the ruins of a Moorish tower, the house is surrounded by a beautiful and well-known terraced garden which still has the original Moorish irrigation streams and channels. The remainder of the estate consists of several hundred hectares of completely private and totally unspoilt indigenous Iberian woodland, incorporating a small organic farm and productive organic kitchen garden. The full time staff comprises: the estate manager, cook, 3 housekeepers and several gardeners, farm hands and handymen.
The main house has a principal drawing room, dining room, kitchen, two family TV/sitting rooms, Sky TV and wireless broadband, five double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a further double bedroom and single room with a shared bathroom. The guest house, with its own kitchenette, has an additional three double bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms are air conditioned.
Throughout the property there are numerous shaded terraces for outside dining and for relaxing. There are two swimming pools, with the one below the main house being heated in the autumn, winter and spring. Between the main house and the guest house, there is a spacious and very well equipped games room/TV room and behind the main house there is a tennis court with a shaded viewing area. There is a helicopter landing pad behind the tennis court. The farm and the vegetable gardens provide home-grown organic meat, vegetables and fruit.
