Marbella’s best addresses to buy a home

The property market in Marbella has been on an upward trend over the past two years, with quality homes at the higher end of the scale leading demand.

La Zagaleta villa for sale

As always when it comes to property, location is key when choosing real estate with the best investment potential, and the town is blessed with several exclusive areas that are acknowledged to be the best addresses in Marbella.

Enduringly popular is the Golden Mile—that stretch of opulent real estate extending from just outside Marbella centre to Puerto Banús. Founded on the principles of a luxury lifestyle first expounded by the Marbella Club Hotel and later reinforced by the Puente Romano Hotel Resort, this remains one of the most coveted addresses in the area.

Sought after Golden Mile properties

Featuring a mix of luxurious apartments and elegant villas that are all just a short step from the beach, fine restaurants and the quality facilities of the aforementioned hotels, owners of the properties in the beachfront zone can enjoy the famed Marbella lifestyle to its fullest.

Also on the Golden Mile, but slightly further from the seafront, is Sierra Blanca. Many of the extensive villas for sale in this secluded estate are set amidst spacious tropical gardens and feature spectacular sea views from their position on a hillside sloping gently up from the coast. This is one of the most desirable parts of the Golden Mile, with its setting away from the hustle of Marbella town but near the vibrant nightlife of Puerto Banús and the beach, highly attractive to an international clientele.

Real estate close to Puerto Banús is also much sought after, with its attractive marina, top class restaurants, vibrant nightlife and abundance of designer label shopping, together with its fine beaches and private medical facilities meaning the stylish apartments and villas for sale in the area do not stay on the market for long.

Neighbouring Nueva Andalucía has long been regarded as one of the best addresses in Marbella, largely because of its high quality golf courses, privacy and proximity to the coast. Properties here are built to the highest standards and many of the villas are set on secluded frontline golf locations.

Just a few minutes drive towards Estepona is Guadalmina. Based around the first golf course in Marbella—founded in 1959—the leafy residential zone of Guadalmina Baja extends from the seafront up to the main coast road. The superbly appointed villas are enveloped by large tropical gardens offering tranquillity and security either fronting or within a few minutes stroll of wide, sandy beaches.

Hollywood glamour in Marbella

East of Marbella town, Los Monteros offers spectacular properties right on the seafront on large plots with uninterrupted sea views. Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas owns a villa here, underlining its desirability as a location for those searching for an elegant and private lifestyle just a short distance from all the amenities of Marbella.

The No.1 Address is actually in Benahavis !

These addresses highlight the variety of lifestyle choices available in the most select areas of Marbella. Further options are available in the hillside country clubs of Benahavís, such as La Zagaleta and Marbella Club Golf Resort.
