Benahavis is known as a beautiful Andalusian village surrounded by gorgeous greenery and spectacular mountain views. It is an area of verdant valleys, lakes, mountain streams and waterfalls – and yet this country paradise is situated just ten minutes from the A7 coastal road, bringing San Pedro Alcántara, Puerto Banús, Estepona and Marbella into close range.
Benahavis is famous for its popular country restaurants, its rustic charm and the pretty village and valley houses that have long since attracted foreign residents and holidaymakers, but since this is a large municipality that extends towards Estepona, San Pedro and Marbella it incorporates many of the Costa del Sol’s top residential areas.
Perhaps the most famous of these are the country clubs of La Zagaleta and El Madroñal, both offering luxurious country villas and mansions set on expansive private grounds overlooking golf, sea, mountains and rural estates filled with waterfalls, horse riding trails and wild deer. Though both are gated, La Zagaleta represents the pinnacle of security and privacy in Marbella.
Not far from here you will find the Marbella Club Golf Resort and Monte Mayor. The former is connected to the prestigious Marbella Club Hotel and features private villas overlooking a golf club in open country little more than ten minutes from Marbella. Monte Mayor is also a private mountain estate featuring luxurious villas and a verdant golf course in a beautiful country setting. The views from here are imposing and the ambience is rural, yet Marbella, Estepona and Benahavis are close by.
If you enjoy overlooking beautiful verdant fairways, Benahavis also has much to offer, including two of the most famous golf estates on the Costa del Sol: Los Arqueros and La Quinta. Developed by Taylor Wimpey, the apartments, townhouses and villas at Los Arqueros surround the flowing golf course of the same name, accompanying first line fairway views with spectacular sea and mountain vistas. La Quinta is situated at the eastern extreme of Benahavis, where it meets Nueva Andalucía in Marbella, and it too offers refined villas, apartments and townhouses overlooking the fairways, mountains and sea in a peaceful, private setting that is however close to all amenities.
