Owning a luxury villa in Marbella has long been a global status symbol, whether as a primary residence or maintained as a holiday home. Local and international owners invest in property here safe in the knowledge that it will always be a sought-after location, thanks to the wonderful year-round temperate climate, modern infrastructure and laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle.

While newly constructed villas will always be in demand, the past few years have seen a rise in the popularity of exclusive apartment complexes offering a level of luxury and exclusivity that was previously only available to villa owners.

Luxury living in ‘sky villas’
The new apartment complex concept offers the height of luxury living, imbued with the sophisticated amenities of an exclusive villa, but none of the maintenance admin that a single-family home in its own grounds entails. Increasingly these dwellings have become known as ‘sky villas’, with even haute couture fashion houses joining in the trend of reimagining what it means to live in an apartment.
One of the main benefits of the luxury apartment complex is space. The properties are spacious and airy, often with a blurring between inside and outside areas as large floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views across verdant golf courses or are deliberately orientated to offer spectacular views towards Africa across the Mediterranean sea.

Low-density building is a must – far from trying to squeeze as many apartments as possible into the grounds, the new apartment complex offers room to breathe, with meticulously manicured gardens bursting into flower throughout the year, free-form swimming pools and water features. A luxury duplex penthouse can feel as spacious as a villa, and with a large roof terrace on the top floor, offers breathtaking views to enjoy while entertaining or simply enjoying precious family time.

Security and country club amenities
Gated communities with 24-hour security offer peace of mind, while the facilities of the modern apartment complex would rival even the most exclusive country club. Gyms, saunas and steam rooms are becoming de rigueur, as the standard of amenities rises for discerning residents used to exclusive facilities while on their travels. Of course, golf lovers are spoilt for choice on the Costa del Sol, and one is never far from a top-class golf course.
We have a wide range of exclusive apartments, penthouses and duplexes and would love to show you all the benefits of owning your very own ‘villa in the sky’.
