La Zagaleta Country Club

La Zagaleta: best of the best

Share Pia Arrieta | May 4 2016

Of the luxurious country club estates to be found in and around Marbella the one that can be said without a doubt to match the standards of the most exclusive in the world is the Club de Campo La Zagaleta.

La Zagaleta Country Club

This hill club, nestling in the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja mountains that rise up from the coast before merging into the Sierra de Ronda in the spectacular interior of Andalucía, has become the location of choice for filmstars, international sportsmen, successful businesspeople, nobility—in fact what could be classed as the cream of society—when looking for a home near Marbella.

The other country club estates in the area, such as La Quinta and El Madroñal, offer their own cachét and many attractive features to draw your attention along with many highly desirable properties, but none are quite as exclusive as La Zagaleta.

Security within nature

With only two entrances, this former private hunting reserve that encompasses a series of natural valleys within its ten square kilometres, offers the sort of privacy that only a gated community with 24-hour security can guarantee. This is much prized by residents, who are also protected from prying eyes by the extensive green zones that surround each of the expansive plots. It is a truly special place for those seeking tranquillity away from the stresses of the modern world, with nature and wildlife nurtured within its environs. Indeed, deer can sometimes be seen on the hillsides and within the wooded groves that are dotted across the countryside, while eagles soar on the up draughts formed in the pure mountain air.

As is to be expected and in keeping with the country club concept of its founders, the range and quality of sporting facilities available to residents is of the very highest order. Two immaculately maintained championship golf courses, an equestrian centre offering tranquil cross-country riding trails and a racquets club provide the opportunity for healthy outdoor exercise, while an exclusive clubhouse with a quality restaurant, bar, meeting lounge, private function rooms and swimming pool, serves as a focus for the estate’s social life.
