Tranquil, residential Guadalmina lies adjacent to the bustle of the traditional Spanish town of San Pedro Alcántara and is ideal if you are looking for verdant surroundings and plenty of local amenities without living in town.
Once a small farming village west of San Pedro Alcántara, the area of Guadalmina was originally made up of fields of corn, peat and sugar cane, until Basque businessman, Norberto Goizueta, began the construction of Guadalmina’s first golf club in the late 1950s. Today families and holiday home owners flock here for its wealth of exclusive complexes and spectacular villas that have since sprung up, some of which are located on the banks of the Guadalmina River or overlooking the pristine fairways of the area’s great golf courses.
There’s plenty of property to choose from to suit all kinds of homebuyers. If you’re looking for a beachside location or the ability to stroll down to the beach, Guadalmina Baja on the beach side just west of San Pedro is your best bet. Slightly inland, on the other side of the main road (N-340) is Guadalmina Alta, a relaxed, leafy area where proximity to Guadalmina’s golf courses and commercial centre are great advantages.
Amid Guadalmina’s luxury properties there’s plenty of green space too. You will find several walkways ideal for quiet strolls, one of the most famous being the ‘Acequia del Guadalmina’. This path runs alongside the curvy riverbank, offering beautiful views including flora and fauna such as European olive and wild rosemary. The area is also home to rabbits, foxes, genets and birds of prey.
Not only does Guadalmina have its own commercial centre and good schools, it is well connected too, just ten kilometres west of dazzling Marbella, two kilometres from Puerto Banús, and a few minutes from the spectacular Serrania de Ronda mountains. As a result, many of the villas and apartments in Guadalmina have spectacular views of the golf courses, the sea and La Concha Mountain standing proudly at height of 1,270 metres.
This exclusive, peaceful residential area so close to all amenities ranks as one of Marbella’s classic luxury addresses, so contact us now for more information.
