The stretch of the coast that runs from the luxury marina at Puerto Banús to the western end of Marbella is just under five kilometres in length, yet it is one of the most exclusive expanses of real estate in Europe, and certainly one of the most sought after residential addresses on the Costa del Sol. It is for this reason that it has long been known as ‘The Golden Mile’.
The history of the Golden Mile started with the creation of modern Marbella in the mid-1950s, when Prince Alfonso Hohenlohe opened the luxurious Marbella Club Hotel that attracted the rich and famous during the sensational Sixties—and it continues to be the hotel of choice for today’s celebrities too.
Thanks to Marbella’s enduring reputation as an exclusive resort destination, real estate on the Golden Mile has gone from strength to strength, so whilst other areas have had a rather bumpy ride through a worldwide recession the Golden Mile has weathered the storm with barely a ruffle. Indeed, its desirability has never declined and it is now more popular than ever as the demand for exclusive mansions, villas and apartment developments is ever increasing.
The Golden Mile is divided between luxury properties on its beachside and those on the other side of the N340, the road along which one travels between Marbella and Puerto Banús. Properties on the beachside, fronted by a stunning promenade and the Mediterranean Sea, enjoy incomparable beach access, not to mention some of the most exclusive beach clubs and cafés. Foremost among the frontline beach developments is Port Oasis, where spacious apartments within well-manicured grounds with beautiful swimming pools and an extensive sunbathing area offer a residence that is close to all the amenities the area has to offer.
On the north side of the road, Sierra Blanca is one of the most successful residential developments, where the demand for properties typically outstrips the supply. With exception views down to the coast, the outstanding collection of villas and apartments for sale in Sierra Blanca offer the very finest in Mediterranean living. This unique penthouse in Sierra Blanca, for example, is just one of the many desirable properties we have in our portfolio. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a floor space of 226m2, plus south-facing views, it promises an unrivalled Marbella lifestyle.
Buyers looking for larger residences are assured of finding a Sierra Blanca property that is both majestic and magnificent, as this villa in Cascada de Camojan amply demonstrates. This particular development is one of the most fashionable Marbella addresses and has earned itself the soubriquet of ‘The Beverly Hills of the Costa del Sol’.
