The country club is an American invention, and at that one of their finest, but interestingly enough some of the finest country clubs can be found outside of the USA. La Zagaleta belongs to this international elite, for its unique setting, amenities and concept makes it one of the most prestigious residential country clubs not just in Europe, but globally.

Not surprisingly, La Zagaleta draws a global buying public attracted by the unrivalled security, privacy and exclusivity they enjoy here. The properties are large and impressive. There are no apartments, no matter how luxurious in La Zagaleta, for this is a true country club environment exclusively made up of magnificent villas and mansions set upon large private grounds.

The latter include such features as private spas, lavish guest accommodation, multi-car garages and beautiful gardens often complete with a landing spot for helicopters. Entry into La Zagaleta is strictly controlled and the amenities – including two beautiful 18-hole golf courses, a sophisticated clubhouse and an equestrian centre – are reserved for the use of residents and their guests.

The private grounds include a buffer of natural vegetation between neighbouring properties that increases the sense of space and privacy. In spite of this many of the homes enjoy frontline golf views and some of the most spectacular sea and mountain vistas to be had anywhere on the Costa del Sol. To see the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and sky offset by the green of the golf courses and vegetation is a true delight, as is watching the sun set behind the silhouettes of Gibraltar and North Africa.

A former hunting estate

The country club covers 900 hectares of beautiful valleys and ridges. Most of this former hunting estate, which once belonged to Adnan Kashoggi, is made up of beautiful green valleys, forested hills and mountain streams that cascade into scenic waterfalls, with the villas dotted between this scenery and the meandering golf courses. It is possible to spot deer and see eagles hover overhead, either from your home, whilst following the horse riding trails or enjoying a game on the La Zagaleta and Los Barrancos golf courses.

The stylish clubhouse with fine dining restaurant, bars, lounge areas, function rooms and racquet club is the social hub of La Zagaleta, but in spite of its stunning natural surroundings this prestigious address is just ten minutes removed from the beaches and amenities of Marbella and Puerto Banús.
