Nestled in the foothills of La Concha behind Marbella, at around 300 metres above sea level, Sierra Blanca is one of the Costa del Sol’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.
Made up of a mix of modern and traditional high-end villas, the area boasts stunning views over the city and along the coast, and benefits from the best of the local micro-climate thanks to its mountainside location.
Part of the municipality of Marbella, Sierra Blanca is located inland and to the north of The Golden Mile and the AP7 toll highway, forming a prosperous pocket that is bordered by the Arroyo de las Piedras, to the west, and the Arroyo Guadalpín to the east, just a short drive, or even a longer stroll, from the centre of Marbella and still conveniently close to Puerto Banús.
Sierra Blanca can be easily accessed from exit 182, coming from Malaga, on the AP7 toll road or via Avenida Don Jaime de Mora, which runs up from the N-340 coast road which starts near the Corte Inglés. Malaga-Costa del Sol International Airport is little more than half an hour’s drive away, while Gibraltar’s international airport is about an hour distant via the toll road.
While the area is well served by the amenities and services of both Marbella and Puerto Banús, Sierra Blanca is also home to one of the best private schools on the Costa del Sol, Swans International, has the closest golf course to the centre of Marbella, the par-3, 9-hole Monte Paraíso Golf, and, if you need a break from too much good living, is also where you can find the Marbella headquarters of the Buchinger Wilhelmi clinic.
Some facts about Sierra Blanca
This exclusive estate made up of luxurious villas set upon medium to large grounds occupies a combined area of 25,2 hectares. It takes its name from the mountain range that stretches out in either direction, with the towering La Concha Mountain – a symbol of Marbella – at its heart. Follow the road down to the Golden Mile, and you can be in Marbella town, Puerto Banús, its beaches or at the Marbella Club Hotel in a question of minutes, but also nearby is protected mountain scenery complete with hiking trails and cascading streams.
Although it is dominated by spacious villas in the €2 to €10 million range, there are also luxurious townhouses and apartments in Sierra Blanca, ranging between €500,000 and €1 million. It is an area that is particularly in vogue with British, German, Scandinavian, Dutch and Russian buyers, among them celebrities such as the famous music producer Simon Cowell, who love the privacy, setting, views and easy access of all of Marbella’s amenities. The Golf Valley of Nueva Andalucía, for instance, is just five minutes away, with shopping, dining and leisure activities also on your doorstep.
In the main part of Sierra Blanca, including the adjacent villa suburb of Nagüeles and the ultra-exclusive gated villa enclave of Cascada de Camoján, we offer a prime collection of stylish villas for sale, luxurious apartments and some of the finest townhouses to be found anywhere on the Costa del Sol.
