Sierra Blanca, Marbella’s most exclusive urbanisation

Within living memory, Marbella was little more than a small fishing town, known only to locals and a few lucky intrepid travellers. That all changed when Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, charmed by its beauty and agreeable micro-climate, built his home by the golden sands, later to transform it into the Marbella Club Hotel. Glamorous stars and celebrities of the day followed, flocking to the area that became a favourite stamping ground for the international jet set.

Many members of this privileged circle visited and either didn’t want to leave or desired a permanent base here, and so began the birth of the modern luxury property market in Marbella. One of the most exclusive of its areas is Sierra Blanca. The growth of the Golden Mile saw opportunities for expansion into neighbouring residential zones, and Sierra Blanca is one of the finest of these.

Nestling in the foothills of the Sierra Blanca range at the base of the iconic La Concha Mountain, this gated residential area not only enjoys a dramatic backdrop but due to the slightly raised position also takes in the wonderful panorama of the Mediterranean Sea with the coast of Morocco and Gibraltar in the distance. With few plots available, resale properties are highly sought-after. Most homes here are single villas set in manicured grounds, or luxury apartments in exclusive complexes.

Not only is this area pleasing to the eye, it benefits from 24-hour security as well as being convenient for local amenities including shops, bar and restaurants. An international school is found within the urbanisation, making it an incomparable location for families.
