Located between Marbella and Estepona on the New Golden Mile, El Paraiso is a residential haven replete with luxury holiday apartments, family townhouses, elegant villas and magnificent mansions, all within easy reach of almost every amenity your heart could desire!
Straddling the main A7 dual carriageway, El Paraiso is divided into three main areas: Paraiso Barroñal (beachside of the A7), Paraiso Medio (south of the golf course) and Paraiso Alto (north of the golf course).
Paraiso Barroñal is home to predominantly bungalows and villas. Some are on smaller plots of 500m2 and upwards, and very popular with holiday home owners. However, enjoying an extraordinary frontline beach position, there are some exclusive properties with views that simply can’t be beat. One of the most impressive is a Mediterranean style mansion set in glorious grounds with Alhambra style gardens and fountains. Its beautiful interior comprises mainly modern features, but everything has been designed to work within a traditionally styled property. With nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a huge basement and garage, various reception rooms and spectacular terraces, this property has to be the best beach villa for sale in El Paraiso.
Across the road in El Paraiso Medio, the focus changes to golf. Lining El Paraiso golf course are some of the most exceptional properties in Paraiso Medio, architecturally diverse but mainly traditional in style. Most are walking distance to golf, restaurants, shops, offices and all the amenities of Benavista Comercial Centre, including banks, hairdressers, pharmacy and more. This cortijo-style property stands out in Paraiso Medio thanks to its phenomenal sea views extending on a clear day to Gibraltar and North Africa. As well as a beautiful beach style pool outside, the villa also boasts an indoor heated pool, staff quarters and a welcoming entertainment area.
Head north of the golf course, out of the municipality of Estepona and into that of Benahavis, and you’ll notice much more architectural diversity. The incredible sea and golf views in El Paraiso Alto have caught the imagination of architects and attracted more modern designs. Popular also are those that appear traditional on the outside but have a contemporary twist within. This villa, originally built in 2005, has been fully renovated to catch on to this trend.
El Paraiso is a superb location to call home but is loved also by second homeowners who want to feel comfortable in a safe and secure neighbourhood within easy reach of Marbella, Puerto Banús, Benahavis village and Estepona.
