In the outskirts of Marbella town, nestled in the picturesque heights of Benahavís and only a short distance from the main amenities, is situated the beautiful neighborhood of La Alquería. Overlooking the Atalaya golf course with many attractive urbanisations and luxury villas oriented towards the golf, this new ever growing luxury residential area with all the essential key amenities such as restaurants, international school and supermarket just near byl, is one of the most idyllic places on the coast to enjoy tranquility while being close to the sought-after Puerto Banús (5 minutes by car) and the entrance to the highway concealed between the mountains, leading to Estepona or the airport.
La Alquería enjoys a privileged and raised position offering amazing scenery through stunning panoramic views of La Concha Mountains, the Mediterranean coastline and naturally the golf course. This area perfectly combines Mediterranean and modern styles, offering both classic Andalusian properties and new, state-of-the-art villas and apartments. While this mix may seem stark, the architectural mix blends perfectly into the landscape offering multiple real estate opportunities. What makes this area so unique is the incredible unspoilt nature, with abundant vegetation taking place among the various neighbourhoods to bring a lush and peaceful atmosphere to the whole urbanisation.
Located at the heart of all the flourishing urbanisations of La Alquería, Atalaya golf is one of the oldest and most prestigious golf courses on the coast which offers stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Unlike most golf clubs, this one was originally conceived as an open golf destination, which now attracts the most passionate golfers from all over the world (36 different nationalities), wishing to enjoy the Spanish sun for a round. As soon as you enter this natural environment, you will be overwhelmed by the sheer size of the fairways sometimes undulating, all equally imposing. A course that you will never tire of since the golf club keeps undertaking significant investments to maintain its strategic plan to continuously improve the golf courses.
The development of La Alquería
For some years now, the luxurious suburb of La Alquería has been facing an overwhelming demand for properties. Indeed, this now well-known area is perfect for enjoying the tranquility of the surroundings while benefiting from the main amenities right next door. As a result, the demand for villas and apartments is outstripping the offer within this lush urbanisation. The whole area has become attractive due to the lack of plot space in the centre which turned it into a dynamic place to live, offering stunning new and modern properties close to great infrastructures and surrounded by beautiful landscapes, privacy and tranquillity. Currently, to meet this exponential demand, luxury and stunning development projects abound in this ever-expanding area.
Most of the properties are surrounded or set high up from the multitude of wonderful golf courses that encircle the area, giving a breathtaking view over the courses. Villas in this area usually have two storeys plus a basement, ideal for implementing a storage room, gym, sauna or even a games room. An area that meets the expectations of everyone looking for a flourishing and quiet but well connected residential neighborhood. Indeed, La Alquería is an increasingly sought-after area for a pied-à-terre as residents can reach the beach in 10 minutes by car, and also enjoy all the nearby courses such as El Paraiso, the Atalaya golf, Flamingos golf or the Real Club de Golf Guadalmina not to mention all of them.
New developments in La Alqueria
Developments abound in the Alquería area, with the aim of massively expanding the whole area, as it is a strategic location where residents have access to neighbouring towns and main amenities in a short time, all in a peaceful setting. In other words, it is a highly sought-after living environment. While most of the urbanisations are already built in the area, an eco-organic project development is currently on set just right next to La Alquería, in the heart of Benahavís. Once built, it will be linked to the main urbanisations in the Benahavís area.
Namely Villa Padierna to the south-west, (the prestigious 5-star hotel where Michelle Obama stayed on one occasion), La Alquería, slightly further north-east and, the Marbella Club Golf Resort. 124 villas will be built with 4 different configuration models that future residents could choose according to their needs and desires. Conceived with a perspective of creating a green setting, the new development will be a massive colourful gated community with jasmin shrubs and olives all around to feel like in a little enchanted world apart.
