Cascada de Camojan, Peaceful prime location
Cascada de Camojan is a gated community that stretches along the slope of the iconic pinewood -covered La Concha mountain; lies north of the Golden Mile and the AP7 toll highway, bordered by Sierra Blanca estate to the west, and by the Guadalpín stream to the east and south.
Small, discreet and very exclusive, Cascada de Camojan is an area dominated by impressive villas set on large plots with sprawling grounds. Among these are some of the most imposing mansions on the Costa del Sol – complete with some of the most impressive panoramas in the entire region. Not surprisingly build densities are low, with space and greenery abundant. Quiet cul-de-sacs enhance the sense of tranquility and privacy, with roads that exclusively serve local residents.
An alternative to Cascada de Camojan is the neighboring urbanization of Marbella Sierra Blanca. It is comparable in the sense that it also has large plots, luxurious villas and magnificent views, but they differ in urban design. Cascada de Camoján is made up of generally winding streets, with a relaxed country style, while Marbella Sierra Blanca has wide and large avenues. Both Cascada de Camojan and Sierra Blanca are connected internally via 3 streets, although they each have their own main entrances with 24 hour security.
While predominantly an area of villas, there is a small community of luxurious townhouses called Hill Club Sierra Blanca.
