Even those people who haven’t yet paid a visit to Marbella will almost certainly have heard of the Golden Mile, a road that extends from the western edge of town to Río Verde near Puerto Banús. This residential address is synonymous with the epitome of luxury living and is considered one of the most prestigious locations for offering the perfect lifestyle in this part of southern Spain.
So aside from its glamourous reputation, what additional facets are there that make this most elegant of European thoroughfares so very golden? Here we take a look at some of the things that make it so outstanding.
The natural setting around the Golden Mile couldn’t be more inspiring to the soul and appealing to the eye, with majestic mountainous terrain immediately above the Golden Mile that is only equalled by the views of the Mediterranean Sea. It is within this enviable setting that the luxurious properties on the Golden Mile are set.
You will find a great deal down by the sea next to every stretch of this region of the Costa del Sol. From the tranquility of its sandy beaches, the bustling activities on the paseo walkway and the trendy beach clubs, there is something to entertain or relax everyone.
