Living in Benahavís

Residents of Benahavís are quick to extol the virtues of this charming mountain ‘pueblo’ that is still only a ten-minute drive from the coastal seaside and the facilities of larger towns, such as San Pedro Alcántara, Marbella and Estepona. It is unsurprising, as for many years the village and the municipal area surrounding it have attracted artists, artisans and the famously wealthy, as well as food lovers who follow the picturesque route to dine at Benahavis’ outstanding collection of restaurants.

Over time, Benahavís has expanded considerably whilst still retaining the essential character of a mountain village at heart. The narrow, winding streets hold surprises at every turn, whether it is another restaurant, a typical tapas bar, an art gallery or a stylish boutique. The addition of a new supermarket and a bilingual school on the way to the village has done much to improve the facilities in the area alongside the creation of a scenic river walk that brings in visitors from all over the coast. It is one of the most talked about areas on the Costa del Sol and one of the most highly desirable in terms of its properties as well.

A number of stylish developments that are sympathetic to the beauty of Benahavís offer a range of residences available for purchase through FM Properties. For example, this three-bed south facing duplex penthouse in Marques de Atalaya offers views of mountains and sea, as well as the surrounding golf course. The supermarket is within walking distance and the community offers many onsite facilities including 24-hour security, tennis court, spa, gym, jacuzzi and an indoor heated pool, plus a fabulous outdoor pool surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Another highly appealing new-build development is Las Terrazas de Atalaya, which offers 56 modern apartments in Atalaya Alta overlooking the beautiful greenery of the Atalaya Golf Club. Divided into two and three-floor apartments and penthouses, this attractively styled project set within lush gardens features open kitchens that flow into open-plan living spaces and gorgeous terraces. These properties are designed, built and finished to the highest standards, with four swimming pools, a paddle tennis court and large pool/lounging deck.

There are also many stylish and modern villas in the Benahavís area. This four-bed villa in Los Flamingos is a new build with pool, garden and garage, plus domotic technology, gym, and a host of other amenities. It is close to schools and a golf course, making it an ideal family home.

La Alqueria is an upcoming luxury area that is home to this new development with only 14 villas in the gated community. This contemporary three-bed villa offers panoramic views of the golf course and it is only a five-minute walk to the local supermarket and the nearest school. The villa is also a new build, offering buyers the advantage of walking into a completely new home and making it their own.
