Marbella West: Nueva Andalucia, San Pedro de Alcantara, Benahavis

From “the dining room of Costa del Sol” (Benahavis), to a place where you don’t need to dress to impress (San Pedro), going through a peaceful and idyllic setting of a chilled-out area (Nueva Andalucia), the West part of Marbella is diverse, stunningly pretty nature-wise and ready to accommodate any lifestyle.

Benahavis enjoys the status of the richest municipality in Andalucía – since it’s boundaries include La Zagaleta, one of the most exclusive residential gated communities – but its equally reach in many other ways. Because of its amazingly beautiful location, on the southern face of La Serrania de Ronda mountain range, traversed by three rivers and surrounded by a natural park. Because of its breath taking sea views and beach proximity – even though is mountainous, its only 7 km away from the coast. Because even though it has little over 2000 residents, there are over 35 restaurants and 22 bars offering all kinds of gastronomic delights that are predominantly of an Andalusian style – practically there is one gourmet place at nearly every corner. Because it holds 9 of the 60 golf courses on Costa del Sol and last – but clearly not least – the properties here are a delight to look at, since many affluent families choose Benahavis as their permanent or secondary residence.

Nueva Andalucia is the perfect example of “best of both worlds” choice of a residential community. Located just 10 minutes’ drive from the volcano that is Puerto Banus, it offers easy access to all the glam and the beat, while it is quiet, graceful and fantastic for a healthy outdoor lifestyle. One can taste and enjoy here the benefits of living on Costa del Sol, drawbacks-free, even in the high tourist season. Rightfully called “The Beverly Hills of Marbella” Nueva Andalucia charms in equal ways by its authentic Southern-Spain white villas, tall palm-trees, majestic mountains and cascades of purple flowers over the stone fences, in peaceful paradise-like setting. Many of the highly regarded quality restaurants on the coast are located here, offering a range of selective cuisine, alongside the numerous bars and cafés. A pleasure for all the senses, comfortably remote but perfectly connected, with all you really need close by and select neighbors, Nueva Andalucia is ideal to raise a family or spend the golden years.

San Pedro de Alcantara – together with Guadalmina (Alta and Baja) – is known for the vibrant nightlife but with a relaxed atmosphere, which the 26,500 residents enjoy on a daily basis. Exclusive mansions, villas and flats with spectacular sea or golf views, are sprinkled with local Andalucian-style restaurants with delicious menus, laid back bars and pubs and a 2 km tiled promenade along the wide sandy beaches. Upmarket areas but not ‘stiff’ ones combine organically with more down to earth places (people too), making the whole San Pedro experience a very livable one. A quick historical fact: founded in 1860, by General Manuel Guitiérrez de la Concha and Irigoyen (the first Marqués del Duero), San Pedro still hosts several monuments and churches as major points of interest: La Torre Vigia Las Bóvedas, Basilica de la Vega del Mar and Plaza de la Iglesia ( XIX century) – with a white colonial style church built by the Marqués del Duero himself in 1866.
