El Madroñal – genteel country living on the edge of Marbella
Situated in the foothills of the serranía de Ronda mountain range, El Madroñal is a genteel country estate overlooking Marbella and its Mediterranean coastline. Though it is just five minutes’ drive to the lively little town of San Pedro Alcántara and little more than ten to Marbella and Puerto Banús, the residents of El Madroñal enjoy the peace, serenity and fresh air of country life.
Add to this magnificent sea and country views across the coastal strip and the protected mountain reserves, and you have the makings of a very special lifestyle for those who enjoy space and the unique pleasures of life outside of urban areas. El Madroñal offers the best of both worlds, with easy access to the beaches, shops, fine dining, schools and other amenities of the Costa del Sol but from within a private setting surrounded by beautiful natural scenery.
Just down the road are convenience stores, charming cafés, bakeries, supermarkets, banks and good restaurants, with the cascading fairways of the Los Arqueros Golf Club the first of many excellent courses to choose from. Like its neighbour La Zagaleta, El Madroñal is a gated community with a country club feel, but here the emphasis is on providing large private grounds upon which owners have built luxurious villas set within landscaped gardens. The latter are surrounded by rustic land that provides a buffer between adjacent properties.
Though the sizes, configurations and architectural styles of the villas in El Madroñal vary, the sense of arrival and quality of life are central features that one feels as soon as you wind through driveways to imposing forecourts. Whether classical, modern, rustic or an eclectic mix of the above, the homes are elegant and stylish, with spacious living spaces and panoramic poolside terraces that make the most of the fantastic views. Many feature the latest comforts as well as their own tennis/paddle courts, gyms, spas, games rooms and home cinemas, but here the simple pleasure of contemplating the views as eagles soar overhead is enough to seduce one.
