One of the distinct pleasures of life in Marbella is its beautiful setting on the Mediterranean Sea, close to the point where the western extreme of the ‘Mare Nostrum’ meets the open expanses of the Atlantic Ocean. The latter also provides cooling winds that are especially welcome in summer, not to mention great for sailing.
If you thought it would be all doom and gloom in Marbella after Covid, you’d be wrong. The Costa del Sol has sprung back to life with pizzazz and it’s a pleasure to behold. Certain health/related restrictions with regard to distancing and extra hygiene remain in place, but for the rest this region has returned to normal life and it’s Marbella as you know and love it!
Situated in the hills above Marbella, the exclusive gated villa community of El Madroñal is enjoying a renaissance thanks to the space, privacy, magnificent views and quality of life offered here.
Given the all-important consideration of location, people the world over begin their serious property search by defining their preferred setting. In many places this is related to proximity to work, schools and other practical considerations, but in a lifestyle destination such as Marbella the search for a new home centres upon the views, amenities and joy it can offer.
Don’t be embarrassed if you know Marbella reasonably well but haven’t heard of Las Chapas. It’s not the best-known among the region’s residential areas, but does rank as one of its finest addresses. Why? Because this small enclave of villas set within the sumptuous cover of coastal umbrella pine offers everything homeowners want from a luxury living environment, including: peace, privacy, security, wonderful sea and nature views, proximity to services and amenities, as well as close access to Marbella and its beaches.
Once you’ve decided to purchase a property in Marbella or its surrounding areas, a question will arise in your mind as you become more familiar with the homes here.
