The lively and typically Spanish town of San Pedro Alcántara is becoming one of the rising areas of Marbella. The reason why is evident when one looks a little closer at the immediate area, which lies just a few kilometres from Marbella centre and borders the glitz and glamour of Puerto Banús.
While a five minute drive will put you at the heart of the marina’s social scene, there is plenty to do in San Pedro Alcantára itself with it’smany dining options and leisure facilities, while the natural splendour of the Sierra de Ronda range is easily accessed on the scenic mountain road that winds its way up to the beautiful historic town of Ronda, about 45 minutes away.
Life in San Pedro itself revolves around the central plaza and its elegant church, while the streets that radiate from and surround the square offeran abundance of pavement cafés, bars and interesting shops selling everything from quality footwear and jewellery to stylish fashion and high-tech items. Lending an air of ‘authentic Spain’ are the many greengrocers and traditional butcher shops, often selling the freshest local produce with a glimpse into local everyday life.
Modern apartment complexes in Marbella
Market day is Thursday, when the streets are thronged with visitors in search of a bargain from the stalls set up in the bustling feria ground. From the town centre a stroll towards the shore brings you firstly to AvenidaMarqués del Duero—a modern and attractive pedestrian boulevard positioned atop the roof of the three-kilometre underpass that routes traffic on the busy A7 road under the town. It is a popular spot for Spanish families to indulge their love of a stroll in the cooler evening hours. Head to the beach from here and you pass through the chic, modern developments that are proving to be very popular with homebuyers in search of a property near the seafront yet close to all the town’s amenities.
Dubbed Nueva Alcántara, this is an attractive district of modern apartment complexes with some older homes dotted among them. The area features a fine promenade and beach lined with chiringuito bars and fish restaurants, as well as a choice of different beach clubs such as Bora Bora, El Ancla and Guayaba Beach.
For those seeking a spacious villa the secluded residential area of Guadalmina offers some of the finest examples to be found in Marbella. Here, on the western side of San Pedro, the Real Club de Golf Guadalmina provides perfectly manicured fairways on its two championship courses, while the archaeological Roman and Visigothic remains offer further points of interest to a peaceful, exclusive area marked by luxurious villas set on large private grounds.
