Many of the finest homes you will find in Marbella are represented by the first class range of properties for sale in La Zagaleta. It is in this highly select country club – renowned across Europe for its exclusivity – that the very best hill club environment in Southern Europe attracts an international elite from the fields of business, sport and entertainment.
The nationalities buying and building beautiful homes in La Zagaleta are highly varied, but all seek out this extensive estate because of a shared desire for peace, privacy, security, top level services, imposing views and of course exclusivity. The homeowners here include Hugh Grant, David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of Ruby on Rails, CEO of the Alba Group Axel Schweitzer and Lord Stanley Fink, former CEO of Man Group PLC. Given this profile of resident, properties with helipads and private spas are more the norm than the exception.
Set in the foothills of the majestic Sierra Bermeja Mountains that rise up towards the Andalusian interior, this former hunting estate occupies almost ten square kilometres of beautiful green valleys, creeks, waterfalls and wooded groves. It is within this privileged private domain that you will find not only luxurious Marbella villas and magnificent mansions on large manicured grounds, but also La Zagaleta’s resident population of deer. These shy animals share the natural splendour of their surroundings with highly successful and discerning people who demand the very best – and receive it in the overall maintenance and upkeep of La Zagaleta’s ‘public’ areas and 66 kilometres of roads, but also in the two first-class residents-only golf courses, the beautifully styled clubhouse, racquet club and equestrian centre. Moreover, this classic country club environment is just a few minutes’ drive from Marbella and Puerto Banús.
Special Marbella homes in a very special living environment
Such facilities form the social hub for residents, with all the amenities of Marbella and Puerto Banús a few minutes away, yet for those who prize privacy the country club is an oasis of space, tranquillity and the lack of close neighbours. The luxury villas in La Zagaleta vary in architectural style, layout, size and orientation, but all enjoy magnificent views that can include undulating golf courses, mountain scenery and the Mediterranean coastline all the way to the entrance of the Atlantic.
