Located high in the hills of Benahavís, just a few minutes’ drive from beach, Marbella and Puerto Banús, the upscale, gated community of La Zagaleta houses some of the finest homes on the Costa del Sol.
La Zageleta is, probably, the most exclusive residential development in Spain and, quite possibly, on the entire Mediterranean, comprising 420 building plots, ranging in size from 3-10,000 square metres, some with luxury signature residences. All form part of a former hunting estate that covers more than 2,200 acres, less than 15 minutes by car from the centre of Marbella.
Located in the municipality of Benahavís, La Zagaleta is protected by the Serranía de Ronda to the north and occupies a series of north-south-facing hillside valleys. Many of the plots overlook one of its two private golf courses and most offer stunning views of the mountains, the pristine countryside, and the coast.
La Zagaleta is easily reached from either the N-340/A7 coast road or the AP7 toll highway via a 10-kilometre drive up, and down, the picturesque Ronda road, meaning Malaga-Costa del Sol International Airport is only just over half an hour away, while Gibraltar and its airport are a little over an hour’s drive distant.
Aside from its golfing facilities, the fortunate few who get to call La Zagaleta home also enjoy members-only benefits like the club house, with its bar, restaurant, swimming pool, tennis courts, and pro-shop; a world-class equestrian centre and stables; a private heliport; and even red-carpet La Zagaleta Service Management.
