One of the greatest charms of Marbella is its residential areas that blend luxurious homes with a golf resort environment. Los Arqueros is one of the finest examples of this, occupying a beautiful valley that cascades down towards the sea from the foothills of majestic mountain ranges.
Los Arqueros is one of the stylish country clubs that dot the hillside on either side of the Ronda road – the mountain route that leads to the beautiful country town of Ronda. Nestled between hills on the western side of the road, this attractive residential area with its flowing 18-hole golf course and elegant clubhouse occupies the lower foothills close to the village of Benahavis and the little town of San Pedro Alcántara.
Marbella and Puerto Banús are little more than ten minutes away, with a host of golf courses close by, yet residents of Los Arqueros live within an area itself dominated by the lush fairways of their own club. The latter is also a social focal point, with a fine clubhouse with panoramic terraces from where the westward views across hills, mountain ranges, valleys, suburbs and the shoreline stretch to Gibraltar on the far horizon.
Life in a golf resort
The clubhouse complex also contains an American style eatery complete with a highly popular bowling alley, a café and of course such facilities as a pro shop, buggy and equipment hire, professional coaching and first-class changing rooms. The Los Arqueros Golf & Country Club is one of the classic courses on the Costa del Sol, and one of the region’s finest and most scenic hillside clubs, as well as being a social hub in the area.
The course was the first designed by the legendary Severiano Ballesteros in Andalucía, and the clubhouse is home to the elegantly laid-back Seve’s Kitchen & Bar, whose panoramic terrace takes your breath away. For fine dining, the La View restaurant and lounge bar provides a refined setting with classic golf clubhouse ambience, and for residents within Los Arqueros it offers a great meeting point on their doorstep.
Hillside, on the edge of Marbella
Marbella is just ten minutes away, but Los Arqueros offers life within a natural green hillside environment dominated by fairways and imposing views. Apart from elegant eateries dotted around the area, the nearby commercial centre of Monte Halcones offers more restaurants, as well as a bank, supermarket and professional services.
Close by are the highly exclusive country clubs of La Zagaleta, El Madroñal and La Reserva de Alcuzcúz, with their millionaire’s villas, while the charming village-style urbanisation of La Heredia also contains a gourmet butcher, a cosy Dutch bakery and café, and a bistro bar. Residents of Los Arqueros are surrounded by both nature, open space and a good range of sports, practical and leisure amenities.
Living in Los Arqueros
The properties that make up the residential offering at Los Arqueros are distributed along several hillside areas and consist of a choice of apartments and penthouses, villas and large townhouses. The prevailing style is Mediterranean, with sizes ranging from two-bedroom holiday apartments to large six-bedroom villas, while the orientation also varies from south to south-west, taking in stunning views of the coastal areas.
Known as a stylish yet affordable residential golf and country club, Los Arqueros is one of the pillars upon which Marbella’s lifestyle promise is built – one of the key reasons for its enduring popularity.
