Golden Mile – The Most Exclusive Area of Marbella
It all started here… When Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe founded the legendary Marbella Club Hotel in 1954, the former fishing village became a hot spot for the international jet set and started the image of Golden Mile as the main playground of the famous, rich and very rich. Today it remains one of the finest addresses in Europe and most established and mature markets attracting “the upper echelons of society”: Spanish and European aristocrats, Arabian sheikhs and kings, presidents, respectable politicians and businessmen, Hollywood stars.
Not surprisingly! This is a fabulous place to visit and even more fabulous place to live in, with the sparkling Mediterranean in front and dramatic Andalusian mountains behind, just minutes’ drive from the Old Centre of Marbella and chic&glam of Puerto Banús. Golden sand and golden sun, the most valuable in Europe palatial homes and real estate worth a whole lot of gold – it’s not called Golden for nothing! The epitome of luxury, extravagance and opulence has it all: luxury leisure facilities open from dusk till dawn, designer label boutiques and jewellers, manicured golf-courses, finest restaurants with international or traditional Spanish cuisine, from Michelin-starred places boasting the world-famous chefs and sommeliers to lovely cafés with gourmet treats. Golden Mile is not a location, it’s a lifestyle!
The area has been keeping its class and style over the years and elegance is refined to perfection. Many original buildings have been radically reconstructed for ultimate comfort and technology while maintaining its old charm, which enhance the day-to-day living experience.
Seaside and hill areas are divided by the palm-lined 8km boulevard stretching from Marbella to Puerto Banús, with iconic Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels attracting crème de la crème from all over the world, business centres, Royal Mosque and residential complex Playa Esmeralda. Completely developed beachside of Golden Mile (1st line) boasts stunning beachfront villas (mega-exclusive up to 80 million euros), apartments and townhouses in Las Torres, Rio Verde and Puente Romano.
“Golden Mile has been keeping its class and style over the years…”
Mountainside part offers 2nd and 3d lines with traditional and modern style villas, apartments, townhouses, and plots to be developed with gorgeous coastal and mountain views. Rocío de Nagueles, La Carolina, Mansion Club, Alhambra del Mar, Altos Reales, Altos de Puente Romano, Monte Paraiso, Lomas del Rey, Las Lomas del Marbella Club, Altos de Salamanca, Lomas de Sierra Blanca, Marbella Hill Club are all high end developments, with Cascada de Camojan, El Vicario and Sierra Blanca as probably the most prestigious ones.
Not so many properties are for sale in this residential community of Marbella; they are all expensive but don’t stay long on the market as the demand for this location is much higher than the supply (due to its quality and lack of available land). They are also a sound property investment.
Drumelia Real Estate offers a selection of the most desirable old and new Golden Mile properties: magnificent villas with highest standards of luxury, comfort and security, impressive penthouses with breath-taking panoramic views, superb apartments set within lush greenery of exclusive urbanisations fronting the long sandy beaches and those nestled on the gently sloping hillside or in the modern country club estates in the mountains, plots for constructions.
