Views are always an important consideration when people buy a property, but in a beautiful resort area such as Marbella they become an even more integral part of the factors shaping one’s choice of home. In this article we highlight some of the most scenic residential areas in Marbella.
Cabopino is a charming area that draws people looking for a bracing walk on its spectacular beach and dining options in its small but perfectly formed port lined with lively restaurants and cafés. It is also a tranquil residential area that enjoys a setting of both beaches and pine forests, a location that provides easy access to Marbella, Mijas Costa and Málaga airport, which is only a 25-minute drive from here. Moreover, Cabopino has an air of exclusivity without being ostentatious, and that is a major part of its appeal.
Benahavís is one of the most charming mountain villages on the Costa del Sol. It is seven kilometres from the coast, a journey by car that can be made in a matter of minutes. Although the village itself is relatively small, the municipality covered by Benahavís is considerably larger and includes one of the most exclusive residential developments in southern Spain – La Zagaleta – a gated community comprising magnificent mansions and villas, plus a country club and sports amenities that include unrivalled sea and mountain views.
Marbella’s ‘Milla de Oro’ or Golden Mile is one of the most famous addresses in Europe. It represents a luxury lifestyle and its prestigious properties amply reflect its upmarket status. This six-kilometre stretch from Río Verde, east of Puerto Banús to Plaza Bocanegra in Marbella contains some of the most celebrated real estate in Spain, including a king’s palace.
The New Golden Mile is an area that roughly runs from Guadalmina on the western edges of Marbella municipality to Estepona. It may have borrowed its name from the original Marbella Golden Mile, but it is a distinct and interesting collection of communities in its own right and has been a popular residential area for many years
For many years, Nueva Andalucía has been the preferred destination for many visitors to the Costa del Sol, and particularly for those investing in permanent residences or holiday homes. As Marbella’s largest suburb, just west of the city centre and inland of Puerto Banús, Nueva Andalucía is home to a large number of permanent residents but also welcomes a significant number of holiday makers during the peak summer season.
