The fabulous region of Andalusia is not only the southernmost province of Spain’s mainland. It is also home to Costa de la Luz, the “coast of light”. This is where the Flamenco was once born, and the cultural centres of Seville and Granada enchant their visitors with unique sights such as the Alcázar Palace or the Alhambra. The whole region inspires with its naturally evolved diversity characterised by mountains but equally by the sea. The small, white village of Ojén nestles typically for the area in the mountain range above Marbella — the epitome of an unspoiled Andalusian village with friendly villagers who offer visitors a hearty welcome at any time.
Hiking and picnicking in the nearby Juanar region is a popular pastime which many Marbella residents like to pursue at the weekend. Palo Alto is the only residential project in these beautiful regions. It is located in an area of almost 50 hectares bounded to the North by the road leading to Ojén and to the South by the course of the Rio Real River and protected forests.
Welcome to the hot spot of the Costa del Sol
With over 300 days of sunshine every year, the pulsating world of Marbella attracts pampered sun-worshippers at every time of year with its unique micro-climate. However the town offers countless opportunities for sport and outdoor activities the whole year round. Improve your golf handicap in the mild winter temperatures with a view overlooking the glistening Mediterranean, or take the invitation in spring and summer to sunbathe on sun-spoiled beaches, swim and indulge in water sports.
The Costa del Sol and especially Marbella are known for their coastline teeming with yachts and a glamorous way of life. But the countryside which enchants throughout the year, the diversity of cultural and culinary delights and the short distances to Seville, Granada and Morocco are also a guarantee for a varied lifestyle.
The sheer accessibility of this pulsating hot spot on the Costa del Sol is also ideal. The Old Town of Marbella and its famous yacht harbour of Puerto Banús are a mere five minutes from Palo Alto, and the same applies to the wonderful sandy beaches. You can reach the international airport of Málaga in just 40 minutes and the metropolis of Madrid in 2.5 hours by fast train. And anyone wishing to take the ferry from Gibraltar and Tarifa to Tangiers can get there by car in less than an hour.
