As seafront building land in Marbella has become scarcer developers have shifted their focus to the Estepona area. Termed the New Golden Mile, this stretch of coastline offers the opportunity to develop upmarket projects of quality apartments without space being a limiting factor.
The condominium complexes being constructed today are marked out by the emphasis placed on stylish design, quality building materials and first-rate amenities, producing impressive luxury apartments and penthouses, often with magnificent sea views.
The location is ideal too, with more than 20 kilometres of golden sandy beaches and stunning vistas across the sparkling Mediterranean towards Gibraltar and the coast of North Africa, and the unspoilt natural beauty of the mountains of Andalucía providing a stunning backdrop.
There is no shortage of leisure facilities either, with numerous first class golf courses in the area, five-star resorts such as the Kempinsky Hotel and Villa Padierna offering spa and dining opportunities, as well as the many restaurants and trendy beach clubs all contributing to the enviable Costa del Sol lifestyle.
Estepona’s charming old town
The charming town of Estepona with its lively marina offers traditional Spanish dining and plenty of shops within its romantic historic centre, while the vibrant nightlife and jet-set style of Puerto Banús is just a 15 minute drive away.
A well thought through strategic plan has ensured that this leafy stretch of coast is being developed in a sustainable way to ensure the area retains its attractiveness, with low rise apartments and private villas in expansive grounds blending with the natural splendour rather than dominating it.
Good value penthouses near Marbella
Slightly inland, the New Golden Mile also encompasses desirable areas such as Selwo, where this development of two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses offers excellent value for money. Built in the style of an Andalusian village, the complex offers facilities that include two swimming pools, a paddle tennis court and a large BBQ area for outdoor entertaining. Los Granados Beach is just a two minute drive away, with the facilities of Estepona and Puerto Banús a ten to 15 minute trip.
Another desirable complex is this one featuring 63 two to four-bedroom apartments just one kilometre from the beach. These contemporary apartments have been designed to make best use of the natural light and the open plan kitchen integrates with the living areas, which in turn flow seamlessly onto the outside terraces.
