Special flair of cosmopolitan ambience mixed with traditional Andalusian style, Marbella

By Salma Hwedi on - 5m. reading time

Nueva Andalucia is a lovely and well thought out residential area just a few minutes’ drive west of Marbella town. It covers an entire valley overlooking the sea to the south and hills and mountains to the north. Nueva Andalucia is ideally situated - joined together with the glamorous Puerto Banus area, and at the same time close to the natural beauty of Sierra de Ronda and refreshingly unspoiled Spanish pueblo San Pedro de Alacantara. Its place and style was chosen by the famous Spanish developer Jose Banus, the “father” of glamorous marina Puerto Banus, who also created La Campana area and built a beautiful classic Andalusian style church there.

As its name suggests, the villas and apartments of this area are based on traditional architecture and design of Southern Spain. Surrounded with mature Mediterranean trees and landscaped subtropical gardens they shine in a perfect white. You will find very romantic streets with pretty houses here, with flowers in the balconies, sunny relaxing terraces and irresistible, hand-made paved Spanish patios with their flowerbeds and fountains, perfect for dining and other types of outdoor home entertaining. These villas are of different sizes but have one thing in common - they offer everything you need for comfortable life.

Nueva Andalucia has always seen much interest from international clientele, especially due to the great infrastructure and the local amenities. One can notice immediately this special flair of cosmopolitan ambience mixed with traditional Andalusian style here. The area is well known for its international cuisine which ranges from an American deli to the exclusive Oriental food places, from excellent Tex Mex, Michelin star Italian restaurant or artistic Scandinavian cafe to the Argentinean grill where you can watch tango sitting next to the famous Argentinean football players whose families live in Nueva Andalucia.

It is also home to one of the Costa del Sol's just two casinos, which boasts a vast gaming room as well as various other facilities, and where you can meet many well-known celebrities. One of the traditional Saturday markets where people meet to have breakfast in a café and buy the good quality food or some usual and unusual things is situated next to the old bullring.

Nueva Andalucia also boasts one of the most popular commercial centres in Marbella - Centro Plaza, with its quality shops, restaurants, bars and offices, as well as a gymnasium and beauty parlour. This lively commercial centre has everything that the consumer might want - from taking care of the everyday needs to buying unusual and exquisite gifts, including carpets, antiques, luxury toiletries and, not surprisingly, everything you need for golf players.

Nueva Andalucia is often called Golf Valley and the area could not be more ideal for the golfers indeed. There are several magnificent courses, including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos, Aloha Golf and La Dama de Noche, where you will encounter the balance between modern comforts and the very best of golfing traditions. You can play golf all day and, sometimes, all night; enjoy a cigar in a special smoking salon of a Club House, a cup of coffee with your business partner or a nice family lunch in the restaurants of the golf-courses. All the Nueva Andalucia golf courses have got their excellent urbanizations, perfectly integrated into the stunning scenery with a backdrop of mountains and valleys, offering modern apartments and penthouses with spacious rooms, fully equipped kitchens, big terraces for al fresco dining, entertaining and resting. The urbanizations boast beautiful gardens, swimming pools, tennis and paddle courts, fitness house, private parking and 24h security.

"Offering space, tranquility and convenient local services, Nueva Andalucía is very popular with families- Spanish, English and Scandinavian".

It is really a wonderful place for children to grow up surrounded by nature and nearby beaches, with recreational and sports facilities. The river which runs through the valley from the mountains to the sea, below La Quinta, invites for a walk with your family and dogs. So does the Turtles Lake area (Las Tortugas), perfect for picnics. Some very attractive modern apartment complexes have been built here lately. Many families with children choose to live in this area also because of the several international schools situated here, including Aloha International College.

Nueva Andalucia connects to Vega Colorado and La Quinta areas, where you can find the stunning villas of different architectural styles, 5 star hotel, luxury urbanizations and one of the best golf clubs where even British Royalty played. European and American stars and the members of Spanish government will be your neighbours here.

If you chose a lifestyle based on the quality and enjoyment of a world of activities and services at your measure, fantastic views, tranquility and a privileged location, Drumelia will offer a wide range of villas in different sizes and styles; the apartments, penthouses and townhouses in the most attractive apartment and townhouse complexes of Nueva Andalucia
