As specialists in luxury real estate in Marbella, we love it when we can present our clients with a highly attractive area they didn’t know of before. Our clients tend to do their homework and be very knowledgeable of Marbella’s residential areas, prices and properties, but few will know of Casasola, a delightful residential area situated in a top position. Not only does it offer peace, privacy and security whilst also being highly central and just a few minutes from San Pedro Alcántara – as well as close to Puerto Banús, Marbella town, Benahavis and Estepona – but Casasola is also a beach front residential area in Marbella.
For many years, Nueva Andalucía has been a favourite destination for holiday homes on the Costa del Sol, but it is hugely popular for permanent home seekers too. As Marbella’s biggest suburb, slightly west of the town centre and just a couple of minutes inland from Puerto Banús, Nueva Andalucía offers a host of properties that are as diverse as the area itself.
When discussing luxury homes and the most exclusive addresses in Marbella, much attention automatically goes to the Golden Mile that links Puerto Banús and the downtown area, to country club environments such as those of Sierra Blanca, La Zagaleta and El Madroñal, and to the luxury residential areas of Nueva Andalucía that surround its verdant Golf Valley.
Marbella has long held a fascination for celebrities and the international jetset, originating with the construction of the Marbella Club Hotel in the 1950s. What was once a sleepy fishing village has in the process matured into one of the best known luxury destinations in the world. Just a little along further the coast, Puerto Banús attracts high flyers with luxury yachts, perhaps popping in to the plethora of designer boutiques that line the streets of the marina.
The Costa del Sol coast offers many delights, from long, sandy beaches to a dazzling array of international restaurants, cool cocktail bars and designer shops and boutiques. However, even beyond that this surprising part of the world has so much more to offer for the discerning visitor or resident.
There are certain urbanisations whose names recur when speaking about the finest of privileged properties on the Costa del Sol. One that has become a regular in this rollcall of exclusivity is La Alquería, in the municipality of Benahavis. Hinting at the zone’s historical roots, La Alquería’s name derives from the Spanish word for ‘farmhouse’ – however, the resplendent properties in this select area are as far removed from a humble farmhouse as it is possible to find!
