Marbella Luxury Villas and Apartments extends to a Golden triangle

There is no doubt that the market for luxury villas and apartments on the Costa del Sol, and particularly in Marbella, grew from seeds first planted in the late 1950s around idyllic locations such as the Marbella Club.

MP Dunne

Indeed, the attractiveness of the area ensured that the stretch of coast that runs just to the west of Marbella’s town centre became known as ‘The Golden Mile’ due to the sheer quality of the properties there.

Exclusive urbanisations sprang up along the shoreline offering expansive villas and luxury apartments to an international clientele in such places as Puente Romano, El Vicario, La Carolina, Costa Nagüeles and Río Verde, as well as in the hills just inland in private communities including Sierra Blanca, Cascada de Camojan, Nagüeles and La Capellania.

Villas and apartments beyond Marbella’s Golden Mile

But as the best plots in such areas were gradually absorbed by the market, buyers started to look elsewhere. As they did so it turned out that Marbella had something of a Midas effect—each area it touches has taken on some of the glamour and glitter of the Golden Mile. So much so, in fact, that now high-end real estate property professionals speak of the Golden Triangle that has formed, with the coastline from Marbella to Estepona as the base and the inland enclave of Benahavís forming the third nexus.

Many of the properties here—for example the luxury villas and apartments for sale in  the Benahavís hill side country clubs of La Zagaleta, Monte Mayor, Marbella Club Golf Resort and La Quinta—are a match for those to be found on the Golden Mile, while also benefiting from the great privacy offered in their secluded positions.

Beachfront homes in Marbella

For those searching for a property on the beachfront the coast from Puerto Banús through Guadalmina and on to Estepona and beyond offers many possibilities—so much so that this stretch is known as the New Golden Mile. The sea view apartment complexes here offer the opportunity for garden flats and penthouses with stunning views, and five-star facilities, while villas in golf complexes such as Los Flamingos enjoy proximity to the beach and superb leisure amenities at resorts just inland such as Villa Padierna and Laguna Beach.

All these areas offer exceptional properties and outstanding facilities with a choice of mountainside, beach, country, marina or town locations—and it is quite appropriate that collectively it is known as the Golden Triangle.
