Situated just off the northern side of the celebrated Golden Mile, Las Lomas del Marbella Club is one of Marbella’s classic luxury residential areas. Covering an extensive area of 35 hectares, it follows the gentle upward gradient from the nearby beach towards the towering La Concha Mountain a few kilometres distant.

When developed by a select group of pioneer property promoters in the early 1970s, this was the finest urbanisation of its kind in the entire area. Since then other luxurious areas have arisen in and around Marbella, but thanks to its space, immaculate green areas, architectural charm and layout, and the quality of development, Las Lomas del Marbella Club remains one of the finest addresses in Southern Spain.

An island in the midst of everything
One of the key elements in this is the fact that Las Lomas del Marbella Club is so centrally located and yet retains the ambience and tranquillity of a private oasis. The golf club of Dama de Noche (one of the few in Europe to feature night time golf), the centre of Marbella, the Puente Romano and Marbella Club hotels, the beach and Puerto Banús are all within a few minutes’ drive, as are lovely walks, health and racket clubs, private schools and a host of other services.

At the heart of this exclusive urbanisation is the Lomas del Marbella Club Pueblo, a stylish Spanish style village consisting of charming townhouses and apartments that together form the nucleus around which luxurious private villas radiate outwards. The latter include some of the finest properties in Marbella, with large homes set on expansive grounds overlooking both the mountains and the sea. The most famous of these is the grand estate of the Saudi Prince Salman, which covers almost 20 hectares.

It was also he who constructed the pretty mosque that can be seen from the Golden Mile, yet apart from these landmarks Las Lomas del Marbella Club is above all known as a comfortable, private living environment with excellent amenities and security.

In addition to the rustic properties within the Pueblo and the large villas that make up most of the area, Las Lomas del Marbella Club also contains urbanisations such as Monte Paraíso, Ancón Sierra (which has an exquisite restaurant), Lomas del Rey, Coto Real and La Joya, the creation of renowned architects Gauna & Taborda.

There are also luxurious modern apartment urbanisations on the outlying parts of Las Lomas, richly endowed with views and greenery, and often featuring a contemporary interpretation of sumptuous Hispano-Moorish architecture, delineating an area that is one of the most sought-after in Marbella.

The home of many of Marbella’s local and international dignitaries and celebrities, Las Lomas de Marbella Club retains the original glamorous charm of this region within a highly prized location.
