La Quinta Marbella, on the edge of open countryside

Share Pia Arrieta | Oct 7 2019

As a residential area, La Quinta – on the border between Nueva Andalucía and open countryside – offers the elegance, privacy and security, not to mention the amenities of a country club environment that is just minutes from beaches and mountain scenery alike.

La Quinta is one of those classic Marbella areas: set within a private, secure environment surrounded by golf courses, mountain scenery and sea views, within close range of nature and yet also just minutes from the amenities and services of San Pedro Alcántara, Puerto Banús, Benahavis and Marbella town. This, together with lovely scenery, a pleasant microclimate and excellent local services makes this rather exclusive residential area such a popular venue for holiday homes and year-round living.

In having its own master-planned form of development, it feels like a country club in which the attractive villas, apartments and townhouses of La Quinta are pleasantly distributed within greenery along peaceful streets and cul de sacs.

Golf at La Quinta

The country club ambiance is enhanced by the presence of an excellent golf club, whose course meanders through the residential area. Not only do residents have access to first-class golf amenities, but the sport is very much part of life in La Quinta. The beautifully styled and maintained 27-hole course snakes through the valleys of La Quinta, providing a focal point for residents that blends with views of the sea and the surrounding hills.

This green carpet flanked by small lakes ranks among the finest golf courses on the Costa del Sol, whose 27 holes offer golf lovers a very wide range of playing options, while the driving range, pro shop, coaching and rental equipment confirm that this is a five-star golf club complete with its own La Quinta Golf Academy. The elegant clubhouse, with its stylish restaurant, bar, lounges, panoramic terrace and meeting rooms, forms the social hub of the local community, and as such is as important a meeting point as it is a prime sporting venue.

Spa resort

La Quinta also benefits from the presence of its very own five-star hotel and spa, The Westin La Quinta Golf & Spa resort, whose attractive styling, amenities and spa provide a top Marbella venue for fine dining, health and beauty treatments, and relaxing in style. A series of well-appointed rooms and suites with panoramic private balconies overlook ample terraced areas, large swimming pools and the lush gardens that surround the complex.

The hotel has a tasteful country home feel about it, with fine cuisine provided by a selection of restaurants that are also highly convenient for residents of La Quinta. These include the El Mirador Pool Bar, the Aljama Bar and the fine dining Sunsa Restaurant. Together with the golf club’s Club House Restaurant & Bar, and the course-side Hoyo 19, the range of options right on your doorstep is impressive.


A broadly established area, with some private building plots still available, the homes at La Quinta are largely made up of villas, elegant apartments and some of the best townhouses in Marbella, to which recently have been added a small selection of modern homes for sale in La Quinta. Each offers a country club setting close to walks in open nature, beautiful surrounding hill scenery and Mediterranean Sea views, combined with easy access to all the Costa del Sol has to offer.

Real de La Quinta

A new extension of La Quinta – Real de La Quinta – will arise in the adjacent valley, where an 18-hole golf course and manmade lagoon will form the focal points around which a series of luxury modern apartments and villas will be created. The country club, which will form an independent extension to the original La Quinta, will also include its own commercial centre, boutique hotel and sports facilities in what will be a state-of-the-art development that more than ever blends the appeal of country living in Marbella.
