Property La Alqueria

The growing appeal of property for sale in La Alquería

What was once a somewhat forgotten villa suburb on the edge of greater Marbella’s residential zone, at the point where the municipal boundaries of Estepona and Benahavis meet, is now fast becoming one of the great new up-and-coming addresses.

La Alqueria was originally popular with people keen to build their own villa in a residential area close to nature. It still exudes a certain rustic ambience but now is gradually filling up to become a more mature, consolidated residential area characterised by luxurious apartments set within lush subtropical gardens and private villas with wonderful sea, golf and mountain views.

The apartments are mostly located at the eastern end of La Alqueria, close to where it borders the Atalaya and El Paraíso golf courses and overlooks open countryside between it and Guadalmina. This is also close to where you will find the bilingual school and a handy supermarket, as well as parks, while the majority of the villas and gated villa communities of la Alqueria are located a little further west and set around a bowl-shaped valley occupied by a nine-hole golf course. It forms part of the focal point for the fantastic south-facing views enjoyed by the properties set along the slopes of this undulating terrain, with vistas of the coastline, the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and also the mountains just behind.

This sense of being so close to all amenities – Benahavis, Estepona, San Pedro Alcántara and Puerto Banús are all within a 15-minute drive – yet also on the doorstep of nature and a world of hiking trails, is what makes La Alqueria so popular. It is why many have chosen to build or buy their new villa in the area, and along with the popularity of neighbouring El Paraíso the result is the consolidation of a new residential zone of growing prestige. The beautiful contemporary properties being built here right now naturally add to this process, so contact us for more details about Winkworth’s prime selection of modern villas for sale in La Alqueria.
