Marbella Mansions

A guide for those considering buying Marbella mansions.  With an enviable reputation as one of the most exclusive playgrounds in the world for the rich and famous, it is no surprise to discover the Marbella property market includes more than its fair share of mansions and exclusive private estates.

Why buy a mansion in Marbella?

This is an easy question to answer.  Marbella is one of the World’s best places to live for many reasons, including:

  • Its superb southern European climate with an average of 320 days of sunshine a year
    • Hot Summers
    • Mild Winters
    • Low rainfall
  • Excellent Quality of Life
    • the famous slower Spanish pace of life
    • the outdoor lifestyle – vitamin D in abundance!
    • a healthy lifestyle – a superb place to hike, bike, swim, ride, golf, sail, kite surf, snowboard, ski, water ski, etc
    • a healthy diet – the famous life extending Mediterranean diet
  • Luxury Lifestyle
    • Life besides, on and in the Mediterranean – the sea is your playground
    • Numerous world class restaurants including many Michelin starred options
    • A wide range of the best designer shops from around the globe
    • A supercar enthusiasts dream – spectacular mountain roads under blue skies with little traffic, an abundance of supercars on offer and several nearby circuits
    • A lively nightlife with epic beach clubs and night clubs, many of which party until the sun comes up!
  • Abundant History and Culture on the doorstep
    • A short drive to numerous great locations including Cordoba, Granada, Cadiz, Malaga, etc.
  • Etc…..

All of these wonders attract the wealthiest people from around the world to live in this area, driving demand for exclusive villas, mansions, private estates and spectacular penthouse apartments.  Marbella’s appeal is enduring, and to a vast market– most northern Europeans would love to swap their cold grey skies for the warm blue ones on offer here!  Which makes buying property in the area a great investment as global wealth increases.

Where to buy Marbella mansions

A few of Marbella’s most exclusive property regions include (East to West) Los Monteros Playa, Cascada de Camojan, Altos Reales, Golden Mile, Sierra Blanca, El Madroñal, La Zagaleta Country Club and the Marbella Club Golf Resort.  

For those looking for luxury properties near the superb Marbella beaches some of the best villas and apartments are located on Los Monteros Playa, the Golden Mile and Puerto Banus.

For those seeking spectacular villas, in a tranquil location close to the town centre but a short drive from the beaches, the exclusive Cascada de Camojan, Altos Reales and Sierra Blanca locations set in the hills overlooking Marbella offer great real estate choices.

Finally for those seeking total tranquility, in the beautiful mountains just a 15 minute scenic drive from Marbella and the coast, the exclusive country estates of El Madroñal, La Zagaleta Country Club and the Marbella Club Golf Resort offer dream locations.

La Zagaleta property and Marbella Golden Mile properties are probably considered the prime spots for rural mansions and beach side Marbella villas and apartments respectively.

Marbella Beach Property

Most people dream of living by the sea, with the ability to relax, fall asleep or wake up to the soothing sounds of the waves gently breaking on the beach. We highly recommend Marbella beach property, the perfectly location to buy a villa or apartment on or near the Mediterranean sea.

Its southern European climate, with hot summers and mild warm winters allow those with property in the area to fully enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and hence the benefits of a beachside location. The miles of beautiful flat promenade walkways are an absolute pleasure for those wanting to walk, cycle, roller blade or jog in the sun with the beach and Mediterranean sea by their side.

Marbella council recognise the popularity of these walkways and they are part of an ambitious program to extend the beach side walkway (the Senda Litoral) all the way from Nerja in the east of the Costa del Sol through to Estepona in the west.  Beautiful board walks and new bridges are being installed in many areas to join up this route.

Marbella’s beach walks are also enhanced by numerous great chringuitos (restaurants on the beach) serving great seafood and local delicacies. Not forgetting of course the all-important cold drinks in this climate! Places like the Trocadero, Sea Grill (within the 5* Puente Romano Hotel) and the chilled out Victors Beach are all local favourites on sunny days all year round.

For those who have maybe spent a little too long in the chiringuitos there are regular beach gyms along the route where you can use the beach side exercise equipment to tone up before the next stop!

In the summer months the Mediterranean is an epic facility to have on your doorstep.  Offering so many great ways to enjoy the Marbella high life.   Choose between getting laid back and comfortable on a luxurious sunbed on the beach by a bar, or get out there on the Med and enjoy activities like sunset champagne cruises, dolphin watching, scuba diving, kitesurfing, stand up paddleboarding, jet skiing, water skiing, swimming and sailing.

A superb year round activity for those wanting to experience the Marbella promenade is to stroll from the centre of Old Town Marbella all the way along the sea front to Puerto Banus (or visa versa) before taking the regular ferry service for the return route.

If you are interested in a Marbella beach property besides the the Med, Luxury Villa Sales always have a great selection of property for sale on or near the beach in Marbella. Take a look at a great range of beachside apartments, penthouses and villas. We have some spectacular villas on the Marbella Golden Mile, near to Puerto Banus and on Los Monteros Playa.

The Marbella Golden Mile is home to the most exclusive 5* hotels in the town, the Marbella Club Hotel, the Puente Romano Beach Resort and the Nobu Hotel Marbella.  The Marbella Club is well known as the place where glamorous Marbella was established, after in 1947 the playboy Prince Alfonso Hohenloe bought what was then Santa Margarita, an old rural finca on a beautiful 180,000 square metre plot on the beach in what was to become the Marbella Golden Mile. This became the family’s Mediterranean hideaway and as more and more esteemed guests were invited to stay Marbella evolved into the world famous glamorous town and resort we know today.
