The charming country village of Benahavis brings the white-plastered pueblos and scenic mountain scenery of the Andalusian interior to right up to the coastline of the Costa del Sol. The village remains a lively Spanish community known as one of the gastronomic centres of the region thanks to its concentration of country restaurants and tapas bars.
Foreign buyers have long since bought properties and settled in Benahavis itself, and they continue to do so today, but the large municipal area it controls also includes major residential destinations such as La Zagaleta, El Madroñal, Los Arqueros, La Heredia and Monte Halcones on the Ronda road, and the expansive hill clubs of Monte Mayor and the Marbella Club Golf Resort.
Staying true to our area of expertise, Sun Beach Estates dedicates itself to that part of Benahavis, which falls within the greater zone between Estepona and San Pedro Alcántara. This includes the residential areas of La Alquería and Los Flamingos.
Extending westwards from Nueva Atalaya, La Alquería is an upcoming villa suburb occupying undulating terrain between the Benahavis road and El Paraíso. First developed in the 1990s, it is already home to a solid community made up of villas complemented by attractive Mediterranean style apartments and townhouses.
Land shortage in the Marbella area has made La Alquería increasingly sought after by private homeowners keen to build their own villa, as well as by investors developing small villa complexes and apartments. The style is contemporary, using the latest architectural design, construction standards and modern technical amenities. As a result, La Alquería not only offers great value but it is also one of the up-and-coming areas in greater Marbella.
Although situated further westwards than El Paraíso, the luxury country club of Los Flamingos falls within the municipal boundaries of Benahavis. This gated residential resort enjoys the status of being one of the most distinguished addresses west of Marbella thanks to the fact that its elegant villas and apartments are ranged around the superlative Villa Padierna Palace Hotel.
The latter resembles a grand estate surrounded by the Tuscan-inspired landscape of its golf club, complete with a pretty lake that rounds off fantastic golf, sea and mountain views for the luxury villas and apartments set against the surrounding hillsides. The resort also boasts some excellent restaurants and the best banqueting facilities in Marbella, and thanks to the exclusive modern properties being built here is fast becoming a new top address in the region.
