A Guide to Luxury Living

Thinking about making the move to Marbella?

Who wouldn’t want to consider a move to an area synonymous with a glamorous lifestyle and opulent amenities? Located in Andalucía, Southern Spain, Marbella has been the go-to destination for the international elite crowd for decades, and it's no secret why—it's the crème de la crème for luxury property seekers in both Spain and Europe.

Whether you’re considering retiring to Marbella, starting a new chapter with your family or seeking a home away from home, Marbella is the destination for those in search of the good life. In this blog, we’ll be looking at Marbella’s Top 5 Finest Neighbourhoods, from the foothills of La Concha to the rolling hills of Benahavís, and giving you the low down on where you can find the best luxury properties for sale in Marbella.

  1. Sierra Blanca

Situated at the foot of the iconic La Concha Mountain in Marbella, Sierra Blanca is one of Marbella's most prestigious residential areas. This gated community offers unparalleled views of the coast and the mountains and is often called the ‘Beverly Hills’ of Marbella, and for good reason. Consisting of a mixture of uber modern and traditional Andalucían-style villas, set amongst a gorgeous natural setting, properties here often attract high-profile individuals and celebrities seeking privacy and sophistication. The peace and calmness, coupled with the fact that Marbella is just moments away by car, is what makes this area a real gem.

  1. Golden Mile

The Golden Mile, a stretch of coastline between Marbella and Puerto Banús, is known for its luxury living and knows how to do glamour. Perhaps one of the most iconic areas in Marbella, beachfront properties with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea are highly sought-after here, making it a prime location for those seeking a blend of sophistication and seaside tranquillity. One of the primary reasons buyers choose the Golden Mile is its proximity to the many amenities and leisure activities in and around the area. Residents enjoy easy access to the many beach clubs, Michelin-starred restaurants, high-end boutiques, and world-class golf courses, all located within just a few moments of one another.  

  1. Nueva Andalucía

Dubbed the Golf Valley, Nueva Andalucía is a real haven for golf enthusiasts, offering an array of world-class courses at your doorstep. Created and built by José Banús, the architect of Puerto Banús, in the 1960s, the neighbourhood boasts a diverse selection of high-end villas, chic apartments, and modern townhouses. Its proximity to Puerto Banús (just a 5-minute drive) enhances its appeal, making it a fantastic choice for those who relish an active social scene. Commercial centres featuring cafes, bars, and restaurants add vibrancy to the area, creating a perfect blend of leisure and convenience on the Costa del Sol.

  1. La Zagaleta

For unparalleled exclusivity and privacy, La Zagaleta is the epitome of luxury living. This ultra-exclusive gated community is synonymous with luxury, featuring expansive properties within a sprawling natural landscape of almost 900 hectares. With a location high in the hills above Benahavís, many of the high-end properties here enjoy incredible views of Marbella, the vast Costa del Sol coastline, and even out towards Morocco and Gibraltar. La Zagaleta attracts affluent homeowners seeking an elite lifestyle with discretion. Here you've got everything you could dream of – a concierge service, private golf courses, a country club, stables, and even a helipad at your disposal.

  1. Puente Romano

Puente Romano, translating to ‘Roman Bridge,’ is the symbol of sophistication and refinement in Marbella. Situated just off the Golden Mile, the luxurious Puente Romano Beach Resort offers a blend of opulent residences, high-end boutiques, and gourmet restaurants, including the iconic Japanese restaurant, Nobu. Its beachfront location and proximity to Marbella’s amenities make it both an ideal holiday and living destination for those wanting privacy and exclusivity.

As someone who has had generally bad experiences with Estate Agents in Marbella and who hasn’t been shy about saying so, I would like to recognise the superb job LVS did for me in selling our Villa recently.

I chose LVS because of the people who work there, I’d like to name in particular as the most knowledgeable and reassuring individual, his meticulous attention to detail combined with the excellent marketing and constant feedback were a pleasant surprise and exceeded my expectations in every way.

All I would like to say to LVS is thanks for doing the job, keep up the good work and I hope this review brings more fortunate buyers and sellers to your door.

“I am very happy with how my agent at LVS has taken care of me and my family during our Marbella home buying processes. She has carefully listened to what we want and need, and she has suggested properties that we really can see ourselves living in.

She is never pushy and never oversells. Still, she is firm in her advice. Her property knowledge is great as well. She also responds to any questions or concerns quickly.

I find that she genuinely believes that the most important thing is that we find the right property for us. She genuinely puts me as the buyer first. I value that so much in an Agent.

I can highly recommend LVS as your preferred and trusted agent in the Marbella market.”
