Happiness is the settling of the soul into its most appropriate spot. – Aristotle

When Aristotle had this in mind, he very well may have been thinking of La Zagaleta! The award winning, luxury property development overlooking the white-washed village of Benhavís began developing in 1991, 7km from Marbella at 400m above sea level.

The project invested €1.5bn and is proud to be classed as one of the most prestigious developments in Europe. Today the acclaimed success continues to attract the most elite of society, professionals, celebrities and royalty; who are treated with the upmost discretion and affinity.

La Zagaleta – Luxury and Environmentally Conscious

A restricted number of homes, 420 are part of the project, with between 3,000 and 10,000sqm2 of plot allocated to each property. Sympathetic to the environment, each property is generously separated according to green belt considerations and encourages the peace of the flora and fauna. The area covers over 900 hectares and there are 60km of winding road, through the landscape of indigenous trees of olive, cork, oak & pine. It is has acclaimed status of NATURE RESERVE in Andalucía, where you can choose walking routes, go fishing at the lakes, (there are 6 natural reservoirs) or horse-riding.

The Andalucían village of Benhavís itself is truly charming, complete with the accustomed narrow, winding streets of Moorish influence. It is renowned for its exquisite restaurants and ‘La Aldea’ the village within the village. Inspired by the British sculptor, David Marshall, who himself has a gallery here, came up with this idea.

True to their word La Zagaleta will strive to promote the success and maintain the standards that they have motioned.
