When searching for property in Marbella and its surroundings, one can feel overwhelmed and spoilt for choice. Most people have a general idea of the area they would prefer to buy in and narrow it down from there, in which case, a sound familiarity of the region is required. At DM Properties/Knight Frank, we pride ourselves on our thorough geographical knowledge, consolidated by our many years of experience in the Marbella property market.
Exclusive urbanisations such as Sierra Blanca and La Zagaleta have received much acclaim over the years, with quieter, yet equally exclusive urbanisations such as Hacienda las Chapas slipping under the radar due to their location slightly removed from the glittering lights of Marbella and Puerto Banús.
And yet Hacienda las Chapas should not be overlooked. A refined residential area of luxury villas set within a shady forest of Mediterranean pines – if you are looking for peace and tranquillity, there are few better spots on the coast. The wide, leafy streets meander up a gentle incline that affords many properties in this area wonderful views of the sparkling sea, which lies just five minutes away. In fact, this part of East Marbella is renowned for having some of the best beaches on the coast. The wide sandy shore lies in front of the Artola Dunes, an area of protected natural interest threaded with wooden boardwalks so as to preserve the rare flora and fauna that can be found just below your feet.
While it is an urbanisation offering peace and privacy, there is still the option to jump into the vibrant urban life in the centre of Marbella, little more than ten minutes away by car, or even the glamorous marina of Puerto Banús with its luxury yachts and designer boutiques.
The international airport in Málaga is less than 40 minutes away, making this an ideal location for a second home.
