Benahavis: An oasis of peace and benevolence

Not only the world-famous Golden Mile and Puerto Banus attract Costa del Sol property buyers today. The New Golden Mile (Estepona) and Golden Triangle (Marbella-Benahavis-Estepona) are equally in demand.

We highly recommend paying attention to Benahavis (appr.150km2), where the property choice is wider, quality is no worse than in Marbella, and price (not status!) is lower.

We highly recommend paying attention to Benahavis (appr.150km2), where the property choice is wider, quality is no worse than in Marbella, and price (not status!) is lower. Its hotspot properties offer comfort and joy of living in the lap of nature only a few minutes away from the buzzing coast (7 km).

It’s home to a spectacular mix of traditional and modern architecture, where Andalusian style is enriched by European chic, without losing unique Moorish influence. Even the name is the part of the rich heritage, taken from 11th-century Moorish prince Havis who reigned in Montemayor Castle (“Bin al Havis”- son of Havis). Municipal district belonged to Marbella but received “Carta Puebla” from Philip II (1572).

“…paradise for fans of ecotourism, horse-riding…”

Remarkably unspoiled, with a picturesqueness which almost makes it seem like a film set the white hillside village is known for its beauty of nature and hospitality of 7,100 inhabitants. It has won the hearts of Princess Diana who named it ‘an oasis of peace and benevolence’ and famous Scottish sculptor David Marshall living here for 40 years. It’s a paradise for fans of ecotourism, fishing, horse-riding, adventure sports: rock climbing, rafting, canyoning in the Guadalmina River, exhilarating trek through the Angosturas gorge.

Its restaurants are its glory. ‘The highest concentration of high class restaurants’, informs Andalucia.com (best suckling pigs and lamb in wood oven!).

Benahavis (not Seville or Marbella) is the richest municipality per capita in Andalucía, has the wealthiest town hall in Spain and the nickname ‘el pueblo más rico de España’ (richest village).
