Benahavís is a charming little town located in the Serranía de Ronda, between Marbella and Estepona, on Malaga’s famed ‘New Golden Mile’. Exclusive homes, excellent schools, first-class golf courses, unique natural surroundings and outstanding views of the Mediterranean are some of the features that make this town so popular with its residents and visitors alike.
Situated in the western part of the Costa del Sol, Benahavís perfectly combines the characteristic beauty of traditional Andalusian villages – whitewashed houses and narrow streets – with all the advantages of modernity, structural excellence and services enjoyed by one of the fastest growing residential tourism destinations of the region. Benahavís is not only a popular high-end resort; it is also a key location in the real estate developments stretching along the Andalucian coast to Marbella, where new houses and apartments are being built to sell and live in all year round.
As well as the outstanding natural beauty of the geography that surrounds Benahavís, the town itself is renowned for being home to one of the most exclusive housing developments in Southern Europe: La Zagaleta. The local area boasts 12 top quality golf courses, El Higueral Golf and Los Arqueros being the most elite. The area is also famed for its rated local and international gastronomy. The local town council prides itself on promoting a cosmopolitan culture that welcomes people with open arms, whether they live here all year round or visit on holiday. This welcoming and international atmosphere is what local mayor, José Antonio Mena, believes makes the town so special.
Benahavís is just 20 kilometres from Marbella and Estepona, while San Pedro de Alcántara, is just a 15-minute drive away. The bustling city of Malaga is within easy striking distance, just 80 kilometres up the coast, it is easily accessible for residents and tourists alike. You can be at the Aeropuerto Internacional Málaga-Costa del Sol within the hour, and Malaga railway station is a main hub for both local branch lines, as well as intercity connections to big cities such as Madrid and Barcelona. The area is well serviced for motorways; the Autovía del Mediterráneo (A-7) and the Autopista del Sol (AP-7) run right along the Malaga coastline, from East to West.
