The first thing that strikes visitors to Los Flamingos is how green and peaceful it is. Sitting among top quality golf courses and tranquil lakes on the western side of Marbella, it offers stunning vistas over links and sea, while the five-star Villa Padierna Hotel, a Leading Hotel of the World, boasts a spa, beach club, tennis club and two restaurants. With around a hundred luxury villas and nine apartment complexes, real estate in this exclusive five-star resort is much sought-after, and the local knowledge of Engel & Völkers can be of great use to potential buyers and investors.
The Flamingo Golf Course hosts regular tournaments, with this spring seeing the Campeonato Revista Sotogrande (25th May), the Golf in the Sun Tournament from 22nd June, and the Villa Padierna Cup in late July (27th). Tramores and Alferini are other top-grade clubs nearby. The superior greens throughout, with challenging holes, two championship courses, and a par 64 course run by an American Golf Academy, have been home to past competitions like the 2010 Ladies Spanish Open, and the European Seniors. Shops, supermarkets, and other services, such as the Hospiten private hospital, are within easy reach.
The urbanisations vary in size but all offer luxury, with stunning views all the way to a distant Africa on a good day, and all make excellent investments in real estate in the Marbella area. Royal Flamingos has a hundred and fifteen high-quality apartments, three swimming pools and a paddle tennis court, while the similar amenities of Acosta Los Flamingos border the golf course. Tees 5 and 6 consist of modern apartments with gardens, garages, buggy spaces, front line golf and a pool.
Designer apartments with two or three bedrooms and terraces await at Hoyo 19, while Four Seasons was the resort's first traditionally-styled development, with spacious gardens and two pools (one heated). The thirty-nine apartments of Mirador de Flamingos also follow the Andalusian tradition, whereas the smallest with thirty-two apartments is Tuscan in appearance, and offers frontline golf. The more modern Alanda is situated on the upper section, and has two pools and wonderful panoramas. Engel & Völkers has knowledgeable local representatives who can help buyers to decide which of these is best for them.
The resort is named after the lake which used to receive Flamingos migrating to Africa and back in the summer, around which the golf course's eighteen holes have been laid out, and with everything close at hand, this is an ideal spot for a golfing holiday. The luxurious properties make the perfect holiday home or can provide impressive rental income for the long term, with sales giving a good return too.
The whole of Flamingos Golf Resort provides a great chance for anyone wanting to invest in real estate in Marbella. Luxury detached villas, apartments and plots are all part of this prestigious resort, spread through spacious surroundings in the privacy and peace of a green valley, with breathtaking views and top golf facilities. And of course, the local experience and expertise of Engel & Völkers can help you to make the most of this investment opportunity!
