We have stayed at Villa Eterna several times and we will be back again. Why? The position is just perfect with glorious views over the med, with views of Sotogrande all the time, Gibraltar and the North African coast most days unless it is cloudy. It is on a hillside, so even in mid-summer we have felt a cooling breeze, with just a short walk to the beach.
The villa is spacious so plenty of space on a colder day and a wonderful music system. Usually it is warm enough to be outside: Villa Eterna is beautifully set out with external verandas on most sides, so it is easy to find shade or sun at different times of the day, or by the pool side. There are Wi-Fi hubs throughout… including one by the pool!
The bedrooms and bathrooms, including a double bath, well laid out on the different levels, which gave space even when we stayed with a larger group including children. Every switch and outlet is labelled, so we quickly learned how to get the best from the house. The kitchen it well equipped and has space for eating, or just sitting together whilst others are preparing food. The lounge/dining room is enormous! We used this on a colder January day. The French windows open out from that room, so even in January, we moved outside to eat on the terrace on most days.
Kev and Gio were very helpful both before out stay and in answering any questions during our stay. They left a welcome pack with things we might need on arrival. The house “information manual” is the most comprehensive we have seen: very helpful! The house is secure, with parking near the front door on a forecourt within the sliding electric gate.
The villa is close to the main street in Torreguadiaro which has a wide range of restaurants, bars, a good place for breakfast when we felt lazy and a little supermarket. A 15 minute walk along the beach (or a 5 minute drive) is the harbour at Sotogrande with plenty of parking, an array of shops and restaurants and more. And of course, the choice of nearby towns and villages along the med, or a trip to Gibraltar, or just further on to the Atlantic coast and the wind surfing at Tarifa and beyond.
So…. We will be back to Villa Eterna….

We very much enjoyed our stay in this luxurious villa. It is beautiful and comfortable. The views from the villa are stunning and the grounds quiet and relaxing. We used the pool area most days having music playing in the background. It was sunny every day even though it was the end of October - a definite bonus!
Giovanna & Kevin gave us very helpful information about the local area and tourist attractions. We went to Gibraltar and Medina-Sidonia but mainly stayed in the local town. There are plenty of eateries to choose from most being good value. We were amazed by the variety of tapas available! The locals were very friendly. This a great place to stay for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. I would highly recommend it :)
Had a lovely time here. The facilities and space are excellent and we loved being able to have our music by the pool. Added bonus was the visits of the parakeets the vast numbers of birds of prey that passed by. Superb views of Gibraltar and a good base with many places to visit.
I booked the Villa Eterna for myself, my eldest daughter and two young granddaughters. Everything Kevin and Gio say on their website about their Villa is exactly as described and they couldn’t have more helpful – even allowing us to stay a little longer as we had an evening return flight.
It was spotlessly clean and a real home-from-home. The welcome basket of basic essentials was a really thoughtful touch and gratefully received (especially the bottle of wine!). I can’t reiterate enough just how wonderful our stay was at Villa Eterna. Suffice to say, we plan to return next year.

Had a lovely time in this beautiful setting, Kevin and Gio certainly had thought of everything to make our stay very special. The photos don't really do the internal space justice, its a lot bigger than you think! Lots of space to be together or chill, all sorts to explore it took us ages to get round it all!!
Definitely the place to go and i would highly recommend it to anyone, it easily sleeps six/seven people. Lovely and private, stunning views they have done an excellent job all round. Would definitely visit again!!
The location was fantastic and the views of Gibraltar and Africa stunning (especially at sunset). The villa and gardens provide a real sense of space. The local towns of Torreguadiaro & Sotogrande provided us with a real variety of nice bars and restaurants. Also the well equipped kitchen & dining areas in the house and the Sun Terrace made it easy to prepare and enjoy our home cooked meals. The Instructions are clear and the house has high tech and quality Audio Visual equipment. The Internet worked well all over the villa which for us with 2 bandwidth hungry kids was important. We especially liked chilling out to our favourite tunes next to the pool. The digital message board in the kitchen was also innovative; providing us with information, recommendations and local events.
If you're looking for amazing accommodation with stunning views of the surrounding countryside and The Rock of Gibraltar and Morocco then Villa Eterna is the place for you. Located on a hill just half an hour's drive from Gibraltar airport, it's a Spanish villa with a quirky twist; very spacious inside and out with tropical gardens (even green parrots come to visit!) and a huge pool. It has everything you need for a short break or a longer stay including a dishwasher, washing machine and air conditioning in the bedrooms for those hot summer nights.
For cooler evenings there's a woodburner in the lounge. There's secure parking on the property for cars and wifi access in all rooms and by the pool. Villa Eterna is situated just a short stroll from the town of Torreguadiaro where you'll find plenty of bars selling tapas, a selection of small supermarkets and other independent shops. Just 5 minutes down the road is the larger town of Pueblo Nuevo where there is also a Lidl. The bustling marina of Sotogrande is close by and it's worth visiting on a Sunday to look around the craft market and people watch. I'm already planning my next visit to Villa Eterna.
