The Innovative Features Behind La Finca De Marbella


The stylish modern villas that make up La Finca de Marbella, the resort town’s most exciting new exclusive residential community, have caught the eye with their good architectural looks, but there’s a lot more to see inside too.

With their sleek white architecture the villas of La Finca de Marbella shine amid the cork oaks and pine trees that mark this residential area, but venture inside and you see that the style and innovation continue indoors too. A large modern door that reaches all the way to the tall ceiling creates a sense of solidity and luxury as you step over the threshold and enter one of the very complete contemporary villas.

Interiors for contemporary Marbella living
Fine materials and an open-plan layout in which the lounge, dining room and the modern kitchen flow into one big, elegant living space set the tone for a comfortable modern lifestyle. Look closer and other details come into view, such as a modern fireplace, appealing wall texturing and the floor-to-ceiling windows that allow views across the manicured lawn and private swimming pool to the nearby sea.


But it gets better. The sliding doors not only open, but fold away to be neatly tucked into a recess in the wall – thus opening up the large covered terrace and blending indoor and outdoor spaces to create one large lounge and dining area just made for the Marbella way of life.


Made by Cortizo, a leading manufacturer of quality doors and windows, the sliding doors represent the latest innovations in the field, combining the best in sound and anti-glare protection with the kind of clever space-saving functionality that enables you to fold the entire glass frontage away easily and merge your indoor and outdoor living areas into one fantastic lifestyle space.

The kitchens, likewise, are state-of-the-art, linking in with advanced home automation and climate control systems that are as easy to use as they are effective. The latter uses the Daikin Altherma system, which controls heating, air conditioning and hot water supply in a way that is quick, effective and highly energy-efficient. It’s an intelligent temperature control system that turns on and shuts off automatically to maintain the temperature you’ve set and avoid wastage – and high energy bills.

It’s exactly the type of environmentally responsible and easy maintenance system that underlies all the beautiful modern villas for sale at La Finca de Marbella.

Marbella: It’s Love Actually


He is known for his screen persona as a quintessentially charming if bumbling and accident prone posh Englishman, but Hollywood actor Hugh Grant has proved he knows a good spot when he sees one by choosing Marbella for a family holiday.

Having achieved fame for his heart-warming performances in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually and About a Boy, as well as a more caddish role in Bridget Jones’s Diary, the 54-year-old actor was in Marbella with his Swedish girlfriend Anna Eberstein (37) and their two children. Mr Grant reportedly has a luxurious villa in the upmarket country club of La Zagaleta in Benahavís.  Neighbouring properties on the ultra-exclusive urbanisation are said to include several owned by Rod Stewart, Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich and Russian President Vladimir Putin—although the discretion and privacy so prized in the area make it difficult to confirm this.

Hugh Grant on Marbella’s Golden Mile

What can be said with certainty is that Mr Grant has been enjoying the beaches of Marbella with his young children—aged three and six months—along with his TV producer partner. La Zagaleta, with its two championship golf courses hidden away from the prying eyes of the paparrazi, is the ideal location for a second home for Mr Grant. The keen golfer is said to have enjoyed a round or two on his latest visit, while he also indulged his passion for tennis. He was spotted playing a few sets with Anna on the Golden Mile just a few days after they made an appearance amongst the spectators at the French Open in Paris.

R814550_1While Hugh Grant no doubt appreciates the privacy offered by the gated community of La Zagaleta, he is by no means a recluse. As well as visiting the beaches and tennis courts on the Golden Mile, he was spotted dining in Marbella’s historic Old Town—and not in some hidden corner either. He, Anna and two fellow diners sat on the terrace of popular restaurant Casanis to enjoy a relaxing meal right on the pavement with pedestrians strolling by just inches away.

Should you wish to experience the Hugh Grant Marbella lifestyle for yourself please contact us for a consultation. We have a fine collection of real estate for sale on the Costa del Sol, including the most exclusive areas such as Club de Campo La Zagaleta.

Altavista Property Launches La Finca de Marbella

After months of planning, design and construction, Altavista Property proudly launched the La Finca de Marbella project of luxury villas with a stylish party on Thursday, 26th of May. With the first phase taking shape and the show villa completed, the hundreds of guests, which included the mayor of Marbella, could view in person the project that has been the source of so much excitement.
La Finca Launch Party

“The feedback has been very positive, almost to a man people said they loved the design, layout and finishing” says Michael Liggan, Managing Director of Altavista Property, who has played a leading role in the realisation of one of Marbella’s most important new real estate developments in recent times. Situated on the east side of Marbella, close to Río Real and right near sandy beaches, La Finca de Marbella is a luxury urbanisation of private villas set amongst pine trees on a gently rolling hill that affords imposing views not just of Marbella’s Mediterranean shoreline but also towards the mountains.


La Finca Luxury VillasWith live music, dancing, stylish catering and hosting, the launch party went down very well, but naturally at the heart of it all was the chance for people to see the project for themselves. “This is a great villa urbanisation in the making, offering an ideal location and the kind of comfortable, stylish modern homes people are looking for,” said one agent. With the show villa ready to move into, the event offered visitors the opportunity to see the properties up close and become familiar with the architecture, the use of space, light, the finishing and the fantastic views that will be part of life here.

With first phase villas completely sold out, the success of the original project has enabled Altavista Property to expand La Finca de Marbella to the adjacent land, this exciting next step: La Finca de Marbella 2, was announced to enthusiastic reception at the launch party.  Homeowners can now choose from two new contemporary villa designs the Iroko and Ebano, with 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms  and a unique luxury townhouse model, the Encina, with rooftop solarium and private plunge pool.  La Finca de Marbella 2 also features the welcome addition of a private Clubhouse with indoor pool, spa and gym, for exclusive use of La Finca residents.

La Finca de Marbella Contemporary Villas

La Finca properties offer a variety of layouts with stylish open kitchens, spacious open-plan living rooms and gorgeous sliding doors that disappear into the wall to reveal an expansive indoor and outdoor lounge and dining area—a first for Marbella. The bedrooms likewise make the most of stunning views, while the bathrooms use elegant Villeroy & Boch detailing that completes these very stylish modern homes.
