La Zagaleta: Exclusive Country Club in Benahavis, Marbella
The project of La Zagaleta was conceived with one simple concept in mind: “only the best is good enough” and is therefore synonymous with exclusivity and distinction. All the magnificent properties built in La Zagaleta present the highest standards in building materials and finishes, and offer many luxurious and original features, not to mention the latest in home domotic systems and installations.
Exclusivity, security and privacy spell La Zagaleta in Marbella
With privacy and security being of utmost importance, the facilities on offer within the urbanization are private and for the sole use of residents, members and their guests. The Club House offers a restaurant, bar, several lounges, library, billiard room, bowling alley, function room with discothèque for private events, tennis and paddle courts, changing rooms, sauna and swimming pool. Members can also enjoy outdoor leisure pursuits like cycling and hiking. Property Management services can be easily set up to cater for residents’ requirements and include home-delivery laundry, garden and pool maintenance, catering and entertaining services, chauffeur and secretarial services, babysitting, insurance and banking facilities. In short, all those red carpet services right through to every day requirements can be catered for.
La Zagaleta Country Club is a 900-hectare rural estate with only two entrance gates with strict access control, and 24‐hour security. About 300 hectares have been set aside as a residential area for the construction of luxury detached houses in large plots, the remainder being a natural reserve with lakes and woodland. Facilities within the urbanization include two private golf courses and driving ranges (designed by the American Bradford Benz), club house, riding club, and heliport.
One of the most acclaimed Marbella luxury property developments
La Zagaleta is one of the most exclusive residential areas in Europe, situated in a stunning countryside location in the Benahavís hills on the Costa del Sol, bordering to the north with the Ronda mountains, and only about 20km from Marbella and the famous marina Puerto Banús, and 60kms from Málaga International Airport. Due to both its location and elevation (at 400m above sea level), it offers incredible views of the surrounding mountains, the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and North Africa on the horizon. All the major towns on the Costa del Sol are within a comfortable driving distance and day trips can be easily enjoyed in the beautiful cultural cities of Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada where, during the winter months, skiing can be enjoyed in the internationally renowned ski resort of Sierra Nevada.
La Zagaleta has gained international recognition for location, exclusivity, privacy and security but also for its planning, which reduced the number of homes to be built from thousands to just around 420. Plots within the urbanization range from 3,000 m2 to 10,000 m2, with each being separated from the next by 10 metres of green zone. This not only assures residents´ level of privacy but it also allows the local wildlife more freedom of movement, hence protecting the natural environment.
This magnificent Country Club has been granted various awards as a development and include the following: International Property Awards, Homes Overseas Awards, Bellevue Best Property Agents and Developers Awards, CNBC Europe and Africa Property Awards, and Overseas Living Luxury Lifestyle Awards.
Also La Zagaleta development has been featured and received acclaim by numerous national and international editorials including: Diario Expansión, Propiedades, ABC, The European Magazine, Finest Magazine, Country Life, The Times and the Financial Times, The Telegraph, International Homes Magazine, Der Spiegel, Golfers & Co., and has been presented on various television channels like CNBC, Via Digital, Swiss and German T.V., etc.
La Zagaleta truly represents “Luxury Life Style, Luxury Living” which is a catchphrase now used but which has its roots earned through the international “Jet Setters” who first started coming to Marbella and surrounding areas in the 1960’s.
