Marbella is a luxurious destination, but which areas within it stand out for having the finest villas and mansions of all?
Even a glamorous residential resort town such as Marbella is varied in its offer of properties, locations and prices. The best addresses here represent some of the finest real estate on the Mediterranean, where you will find not only sumptuous beachside penthouses set in exclusive complexes but also magnificent villas and opulent mansions that are little short of being palaces.
Marbella’s Golden Mile
Perhaps the ultimate address in Marbella, the Golden Mile is a 6,5 kilometre-long stretch of elegance ensconced between private beaches and a long palm-lined avenue. The beachside area flanking the famous Marbella Club Hotel and Puente Romano Resort contains fabulous Golden Mile frontline beach villa and penthouses in what is a veritable millionaire’s row.
As a country club estate set in the hills above Marbella, La Zagaleta may differ from the Golden Mile in many ways, but it is every bit as exclusive. This gated community with its residents-only golf club and expansive country estates appeals to those looking for optimal peace, privacy and security.
Neighbouring La Zagaleta adds cachet of itself, but El Madroñal is a distinguished country club in its own right, featuring beautiful hill club residences on large plots of land. The views add to the charm of country chic enjoyed here amid nature yet close to Marbella.
Often seen as the inland extension of the Golden Mile, Sierra Blanca is a select gated community at the foot slopes of Marbella’s landmark La Concha Mountain. Though there are luxury apartments, the area is above all known for the large, luxury Sierra Blanca villas that enjoy total privacy at a few minutes from Marbella town.
Not only is Los Monteros the most exclusive residential area on the eastside of Marbella, it also stands out for being one of the few places where you will find grand villas along the beach. Indeed, the Los Monteros beachfront villas are among the finest mansions for sale in Marbella.
Guadalmina and Nueva Andalucía
Though they offer a more varied residential choice including medium-sized homes, these two areas also contain some top-end zones offering the large, stylish villas on the Guadalmina golf course, luxurious La Cerquilla villas near the Los Naranjos course, La Quinta and Las Brisas golf and villa zones that make up the Golf Valley, and the highly select beachside villas of Guadalmina Baja, which complete a very broad range of distinguished residential areas that are not just the best addresses in Marbella, but also offer the finest homes.
