Benahavis Village is easily one of the most enchanting villages on the Costa del Sol, closed to Marbella.
Offers remarkable and picturesque views and more than ten golf courses. The mixture of sun, sea, gastronomy, golf and mountains make this charming abode a very special place to reside.
Benahavis kept its original charm and is alive all year around, offering lots of activities for young and elderly. It also has an extremely high percentage of resident expatriates who have found its location and ambience irresistible.
Benahavis is synonymous with food. It has the highest concentration of high class restaurants in the region and draws visitors by the thousands who come simply to savour the cuisine. It also hosts the Culinary Arts School of Benahavis.
Benahavis is a wealthy Municipality and has been one of the leading town councils for developments, urbanizations and golf courses. The quality of properties on offer in Benahavis is in general high; many have been built within the last 10 years. And is growing quickly on its outskirts, with new urbanisations.
Established in the area are some of the most exclusive mansion clubs in Europe, which contribute to the Benahavis’ status as the richest municipality per capital in Andalucía.
Benahavis also has a housing estate in which luxury and fame are concentrated in a special place: La Zagaleta. Considered to be one of Europe’s most exclusive Resorts, La Zagaleta is set among 2,200 acres of pure natural beauty. Oak trees and forests, rise from the valley floors and crystal-clear streams trickle down from the Sierra Bermeja Mountains, which form a stunning backdrop to this prestigious private club. Look in another direction and the vista become that of the blue Mediterrean (with North Africa and Gilbraltar visible on a clear day), or the lush green that covers the private golf courses of the Country Club. All this can be seen from the tasteful and luxurious villas that so enchant visitors, where space between plots ensures that nothing can interrupt the views from a private terrace or pool. Buyers can inspect plots and begin to indulge their dreams straightaway, making this one of the most advantageous real estate sites in a region that is already rich with investment opportunities. An idyllic setting in which large fortunes and celebrities like Eva Longoria or Hugh Grant, have been spotted lately.
In spite of this, it has remained remarkably unspoiled, with winding narrow streets and a picturesqueness which almost makes it seem like a specially-created film set.
It stands 500 meters above sea level, 7 kilometers inland from the Guadalmina Golf Course, and is reached by driving through the Guadalmina river gorge up into the hills.
Its Moorish heritage is emphasized by the existence nearby of the ruined 11th Century castle of Montemayor. As its name suggests, this Arab fortress sits on top of the highest mountain in the location and you can visit the ruins and experience the stunning views of the coast.
A notable feature of the village is La Aldea. Almost a village within a village, La Aldea was the brainchild of the British sculptor, David Marshall, whose gallery is one of its main features however, there are other art galleries in Benahavis.
