country living, hansa realtyThe Marbella luxury lifestyle started in the 1950s with the creation of the famous Marbella Club. An oasis of Mediterranean idyll—and the party hotspot for an international jet set—it soon became a byword for an international pleasure-seeking lifestyle.

Over the years that culture of luxurious hedonism expanded, first through the top end villas and apartments along the Golden Mile with its clubs and first class dining facilities, then with the development of property based around the luxury marina of Puerto Banús and the famous golf courses of Nueva Andalucía.

But then a new concept took hold—one that has taken the luxury lifestyle of the Golden Mile and Puerto Banús and put it in the secluded setting of the hills and mountains that dominate the immediate hinterland of Marbella. This was the development of the exclusive country club communities that are now some of the most sought after parts of Marbella and its surrounding areas.

Luxury villas in gated communities

The notion of luxurious villas located on large, secluded plots with every conceivable facility on site set away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, has become a highly popular one, particularly alluring to international actors, sportsmen and successful businesspeople looking for an oasis of calm in the Spanish sunshine.

Offering 24-hour security, its list of facilities for the exclusive use of residents and their guests is more than impressive. Those lucky enough to live there have the use of not one, but two championship standard golf courses, an equestrian centre and a clubhouse featuring golf pro shop, restaurants, pool club, stylish meeting lounges, billiards and bowling as well as tennis courts. Green zones between each plot ensure individual homes retain their privacy whilst still benefiting from stunning sea vistas to Gibraltar and Africa.

Secure and secluded private properties

Many of the properties in nearby El Madroñal share those views. Again, its 24-hour guards and gated entrance ensure security for the luxurious homes, which are built on expansive plots in the midst of natural splendour.

Head back toward the coast, but still in Benahavis, and the country club lifestyle can also be found at La Quinta. Here the mix of luxurious properties is broader and includes elegant villas, townhouses and quality apartments within the 160 hectare complex. A five-star hotel, spa, restaurants, gym and padel tennis courts, as well as a top quality golf course are some of the amenities on offer, all within 15 minutes of Puerto Banús and Marbella.

These are just three of the country club estates in the Marbella area; for information on buying a home in these and other exclusive gated communities please contact Hansa Realty. We have a fine selection of properties in all Marbella’s most sought after areas.
