Over the past few years the affluent inland enclave of Benahavís has come to rival Marbella itself in terms of being a desirable residential destination featuring quality property in an enviable sun-soaked location, just a few short hours flying from chillier Northern climes.

BenahavisIts unique mix of the Marbella lifestyle combined with a relaxed mountainside location close to a pretty white village in the midst of nature—only 0.8% of the municipality’s 145 Km2 of terrain has been developed—has proven to be irresistible to international buyers searching for the best the Costa del Sol has to offer.

The attractions of Benahavís are centred on the charming village, which has a rural setting yet is only a few minutes drive from the bustling coastal resorts of Marbella, Estepona and the glamorous party spot of Puerto Banús. This is not to say that Benahavís is something of a backwater—indeed it is known colloquially as ‘the gourmet village’ due to the large number of restaurants and the gastronomy to be found there, making it a ‘must visit’ for lovers of fine dining.  A nearby modern commercial centre offers shopping opportunities, while several luxury hotels provide a variety of spa and leisure facilities that are the equal of any to be found on the Costa del Sol.

Most desirable Benahavís real estate

When it comes to properties, the most desirable are to be found in the country club estates that nestle in the wooded hills just off the Ronda Road.  Mostly built round the picturesque charms of verdant golf courses, they offer privacy and 24 hour security as well as exceptional leisure amenities to those fortunate enough to have invested in a property within their environs. The most exclusive of these is La Zagaleta, with its two golf courses, private equestrian centre, magnificent clubhouse and extensive green zones. The villas for sale within the country club are some of the most coveted on the Costa del Sol and certainly rank amongst its finest.Zagaleta villas

One of the popular residential areas of Benahavís is that of La Quinta. The apartments and villas here are of a very high standard and benefit from sea or mountain views from their elevated position. They have proven to be enduringly popular, both as holiday residences on a golf course and near the sea, and as permanent homes for those looking to enjoy life on the Costa del Sol, as have those at Monte Mayor. The newer estates of Los Flamingos and the Marbella Club Golf Resort are also proving to be very sought after by those searching for an exclusive lifestyle.
