The beautiful mountain village of Benahavis in Spain’s Costa del Sol, is just a 10 minute drive from Crystal Shore Properties’ offices. This pretty, quaint town has remained remarkably unspoilt, with its winding narrow lanes and white washed houses surrounding the village centre, which is packed full of superb restaurants. Cuisine is so important here that Benahavis has its own cookery school called the “Dieta Mediterranea”.
The road up to Benahavis town winds alongside the Guadalmina River, and some beautiful luxury developments have sprung up along the route. There are luxury property for sale in these sought after Benahavis developments – Los Arqueros, Lomas de Conde Luque, La Alqueria, Capanes del Golf, Marbella Club Golf Resort and Monte Mayor to name but a few.
There are also 9 golf courses in the area, one of which is La Zagaleta, a highly exclusive mansion club which contributes to Benahavis’ status as the wealthiest municipality per capita in Andalucía.
Some of Crystal Shore Properties’ most exclusive, luxury villas for sale are in La Zagaleta. Benahavis recently gained an even higher reputation as a location to invest in, when, this year, President of the United States, Barack Obama’s wife, stayed in Villa Padierna – a luxury 5 star hotel in the municipality of Benahavis, which overlooks Los Flamingos Golf.
Benahavis is ideal for anyone looking to buy a property somewhere peaceful but not out in the middle of nowhere. It is not over-built; it is surrounded by beautiful scenic countryside and hills, but it is just 5 minutes down the road to the beach. It also has quick access on to the A7 toll road motorway, so it is only 10 minutes from Puerto Banus, 15 minutes to Marbella, and 40 minutes to Malaga airport.
Crystal Shore Properties has some fantastic quality properties in this area, for sale and for rent, which are great value for money. Many of these are found in the area known as Los Arqueros – a stunning, but notoriously difficult, golf course which is now surrounded by well established urbanisations.
The community is built on a hillside so the majority of properties have lovely views down the valley and out to sea. You can find beautiful apartments, villas and townhouses for sale here and they all have use of the Clubhouse and its facilities. Soon there will be a complete commercial centre as well. In the meantime, San Pedro is just a 5 minute drive down the road and the famous historic town of Ronda is half an hour away inland.
