Long before Marbella was known there was a private hunting estate set within an idyllic area of outstanding natural beauty. The property encompassed dozens of hectares of land in the hills above San Pedro Alcántara, a small town close to Marbella, from where it offered wonderful views of the wooded mountains, the Mediterranean Sea and the deep blue Andalusian skies.
In this domain once trod and fought over by Phoenicians, Romans, Moors and Christian kings, aristocrats hunted wild boar, deer and rabbits within folds of intense natural greenery. In the 1960s this extensive country estate was acquired by a French industrialist, who later sold a section, now known as La Zagaleta to Adnan Kashoggi, while an earlier part had become El Madroñal.
Both are now well-established ultra-luxury country estates, while La Reserva de Alcuzcuz is an equally luxurious gated community of mostly top-spec villas that retains the air and feel of a landed estate. This is in part thanks to the fact that it borders an extensive stretch of protected countryside, where nature continues to dominate the environment.
