Nueva Andalucía is Marbella’s largest and popular residential area because of its suburban feel and sense of space combined with close proximity to the beaches, shops and leisure amenities of Puerto Banús, Marbella town and San Pedro Alcántara. Further appeal is added by its beautiful homes, excellent mountain, golf and sea views, having so many shopping and dining facilities on your doorstep, a top international school, and of course the three fantastic golf courses that have brought it to become known as The Golf Valley.

With the sea nearby, Nueva Andalucía surrounded by open hill countryside and so many of its properties enjoying a frontline golf setting, this is a prime location in Marbella. However, within Nueva Andalucía there are areas that stand out, and the finest of these is undisputedly La Cerquilla.

The villa suburb within a villa suburb
If Marbella is above all known for its beautiful private homes, then La Cerquilla represents the crème de la crème of villa options in Nueva Andalucía. To begin with, where much of this spacious suburb is situated within a green valley criss-crossed by the golf courses of Aloha, Los Naranjos and Las Brisas, La Cerquilla occupies a somewhat raised position, and for this reason enjoys stunning coastal, golf, mountain and especially seascape views.

From Las Brisas, the most prestigious of all the golf courses in Nueva Andalucía, a suburban road follows a gentle gradient upwards and into the most exclusive villa address of the area. Here there is little or no passing traffic, and the elegant homes lining the leafy streets exude a sense of privacy and refinement. The styles vary from Mediterranean to ultra modern, and there is variation in size and orientation too, but La Cerquilla homes all share a sense of quality and exclusivity.

The best sea views
For all that it enjoys a raised position above Nueva Andalucía – and the stunning views that come with that – the homes are set upon surprisingly level plots, which makes the wonderful sea views enjoyed from the garden side all the more impressive. Architects ensure that such vistas are with you throughout the house, but especially on the poolside terraces and from the gardens, where they tend to take your breath away.

With such a good choice of high-quality villas in a peaceful, private setting close to everything Nueva Andalucía and greater Marbella have to offer, it is clear why La Cerquilla is considered to be the jewel of this area and also one of the most sought-after residential zones.
