Established in the 1970s by Manuel Gonzalez, a bullfighter turned businessman, the mature neighborhood of Rocío de Nagüeles stands on more than 600,000 square metres of prime land as it rises north of Marbella’s famous Golden Mile.
The housing mix in Rocío de Nagüeles comprises everything from larger than average, three-bedroom apartments and townhouses in a number of select developments, up to luxurious single -family villas standing on sizeable plots. The area is bordered by the Avenida Buchinger to the north and east, the Arroyo de las Piedras to the west, and the urbanisations of El Capricho, La Carolina, and LA Virginia to the south.
Rocío de Nagüeles straddles the AP-7 toll highway, stretching from the N340 coast road up to the southern edge of Sierra Blanca, and can be driectly accessed via exit 182 of the AP-7 and from Búlevar Ashmawi where it leaves the N340. Málaga-Costa del Sol International Airport is just over 50 kilometres away.
The neighborhood is well served by all kinds of local amenities, including a wide choice of international restaurants along the N340 and a Supersol supermarket, although the green, leafy streets to the north are most sought after for their quiet and peaceful atmosphere, just a five-minute drive away from Marbella and Puerto Banús.
