People have always loved spacious properties with lush gardens in beautiful locations, but in recent times it has become an increasingly important factor when searching for the ideal residence or second home in Marbella.

The ebb and flow of tastes shifts between suburban, country and urban living, and back. It has been this way for decades, and after a period in which downtown urban living was the hottest trend it seems there is now a reaction back out of the city centre and into a more spacious, natural environment. The Covid-19 situation has amplified this desire to be surrounded by greenery, have a private space to call your own and enjoy the sensory appeal of a garden, but in reality it has its roots in the rapid pace of life in large urban centres, and the way they make people yearn for a gentler, more natural lifestyle.

Spacious homes and Marbella second homes
If the above applies to first residences, it’s also true for second homes, and while we can’t always control the environment we live and work in – the best career opportunities tend to be in large metropolitan areas – we can choose where we vacation and spend our precious free time. Increasingly, therefore, those who can, are moving away from densely built up city and resort zones and looking for properties and areas that can offer the authentic getaway experience of peace, privacy, relaxation, space and nature. To do so without ‘going back to nature’ entirely, and still being able to enjoy fine dining, quality amenities and diversions brings us to Marbella.

Marbella belongs to a very select group of destinations in the world that are exclusive, secure and able to cater to a discerning international clientele. It is cosmopolitan, exciting and dynamic, with a can-do attitude and an outdoor lifestyle, but it’s also graced by the gentler Andalusian pace of life and the large semi-tropical gardens of private villas and luxurious apartment complexes, many of which overlook un-crowded frontline beach locations, golf courses and open country. A lot of the properties for sale in Marbella and its immediate surroundings enable you to step straight on to the beach, fairways or head into hiking trails or wooded groves.

Quite apart from its own spacious, leafy suburban areas, Marbella and the greater area that also includes the municipalities of Benahavis, Estepona, Ojén and Mijas, offers a great many hill club, country club and rustic living environments just minutes from the coastal region and its amenities. In exclusive residential country club areas such as La Mairena, La Quinta, El Madroñal, La Reserva de Alcuzcuz, Los Flamingos and La Zagaleta, not to mention Monte Mayor, La Alqueria and the Marbella Club Golf Resort, you will find beautiful apartments and especially villas set within large landscaped grounds surrounded by ample natural vegetation overlooking golf courses, mountains and sea.

Such spacious, natural properties for sale in Marbella are now the most sought after, offering a private domain to call your own. Contact us if you would like more information.
