The possibilities are limitless, so choose your preferred activity or try them all.
Additionally, you may explore nearby villages, visit Marbella’s splendid parks, or embark on a day trip to hike and discover the mountainside during your free time. For those residing or owning a vacation home in Marbella, golf is a favoured pastime, and later on in this article, we will showcase some of the top golf courses available in the city.
The unique aspect of residing in Marbella is the abundance of engaging activities accessible regardless of the weather or season. With over 300 sunny days annually, numerous individuals who elect to acquire property in Marbella, prioritize outdoor activities.
Many seeking real estate in Spain do so precisely because they wish to reside near one of the first rate golf courses in this region. Upon discovering their dream Costa del Sol villa they are not disappointed by a climate that allows year round enjoyment of local fairwais.
Since the early 1960’s when Jose Banús first envisioned “Nueva Andalucia” with it’s magnificent marina, but also with it’s various golf courses and luxury villas dotted around them, the key to a successful development in Marbella has been to have a golf course at it’s heart.
Older and even more successful than Nueva Andalucía in terms of planned golf development is Guadalmina. With it’s tree-lined network of villa studded streets woven between the fairways and greens of its three courses, Guadalmina has a village community appeal. The charming local Chapel is in great demand for high society weddings, and the “corner-shop” concept is still alive and well in the heart of Guadalmina. The original apartment buildings are famed for their spaciousness and views, making them attractive to permanent residents and always in demand.
Los Monteros Rio Real is also one of Marbella’s oldest courses, with attractive villa development around the fairways and down to the sea. Luxury development with apartments of the highest quality, both on the north part of the course and next to the sea, is finally fulfilling the potential of the Rio Real area. The Meridien Los Monteros 5-star beach hotel and tennis resort reflects the charm, glamour and fun that is Marbella. Recently completely refurbished it combines elegance with state of the art technology
The newest courses: Los Flamingos, Marbella Club Golf Resort and Monte Mayor are all in the so called “new golden mile” between San Pedro Alcántara and Estepona. The bloom of 5-star hotels developed in the past three years along this stretch of coast has prompted it’s new status as a blue chip investment area. The golf developers have been quick to follow.
The success of the very exclusive La Zagaleta development (with few plots left to sell), convinced the owners of the Marbella Club of the demand for exclusivity and the high price purchasers are prepared to pay for it. A major investment in infrastructure and the development of a golf course in a spectacular mountainous environment off the Benahavis road, offers purchasers wonderful plots on the Marbella Club Golf Resort. If you can afford it, this is the place to build your dream villa.
For the adventurous purchaser, the Monte Mayor Golf and Country Club development is high up in the hills behind La Cancelada village and offers the slightly less expensive alternative for your mountain-golf home.
Los Flamingos Golf Course is just behind the beach development of Costalita offering easy access to the beach, great views of the golf course and the lake it surrounds, as well as a view of the sea from your apartment or villa. In terms of recent investment performance, the prize has to go to La Cala and Mijas. This is not a new golf area. The new ingredient is perhaps the luck o’ the Irish. Since the residents of that green, golfing isle discovered La Cala and Mijas a few years ago the area has been transformed into something which might be considered to be Dublin-on-Sea. For a nation with 365 days of rain each year, a passion for golf and an affinity for all the things which Spaniards hold dear, the attraction was always inevitable, and seems to be continuous.
While many people visit Marbella each year to enjoy the white sandy beaches, enjoy exploring the countryside and and picturesque views or simply come to sample some of the wonderful Spanish cuisine, few people realize that Marbella is the perfect place to take a golfing holiday.
In an area that gets almost 300 days of sunshine a year with incredible mountain views and wonderful sea breeze it is the perfect setting for golf and golf they have with 15 golf courses right in the city and 45 courses within 30Km of Marbella it is a haven for those looking to enjoy the perfect golfing holiday. Best of all there are several wonderful villas and other rentals in Marbella that sit right along some of the golf courses and many others within an easy walk.
