Marbella Golden Mile18 Jul, 2017 Manuel Alarcon
The glamorous Golden Mile is Marbella’s most prestigious address, featuring a property for every taste and style, from the traditional family villa to stylish penthouse apartments offering stunning views and multi-million euro homes with a world of exclusivity.
This 6,5 kilometre-long stretch of avenue lined with palm trees connects Marbella town and Puerto Banús, making this the cradle of the resort’s reputation for glamour, opulence and sophistication. Situated at the heart of Marbella’s most exclusive area, the Golden Mile offers a millionaire’s row of ultra-exclusive beachfront villas and frontline beach apartments, with gently wooded exclusive residential areas on the mountainside of the iconic boulevard.
The Golden Mile is also home to two of Europe’s most celebrated hotels, The Marbella Club and the Puente Romano Hotel & Spa, both of which feature a wide selection of facilities including gourmet dining venues offering everything from Michelin star options to gluten free choices, classy bars and elegant nightclubs. Chic boutique stores and a choice of tranquil beaches can also be found along the Golden Mile, while the area extends inland into the luxury residential zones of Nagüeles and the exclusive gated communities of Sierra Blanca and Cascada de Camoján. Dominated by luxury villas with fantastic sea views, they are also home to a small collection of select apartment complexes.
This level of exclusivity and privacy does not come at the cost of access, for these prime property locations in Marbella are just minutes away from its amenities, services and glamour spots. These range from the Suite nightclub and Puente Romano Sea Grill to boutiques, art galleries, fine dining, beach clubs and supermarkets, while there is an excellent choice of golf and tennis clubs, as well as international schools, within a ten-minute range. Interestingly, the Golden Mile is also known to be the holiday residence of the Saudi royal family, though the palatial complex which is said to resemble the White House is not likely to come up for sale anytime soon.
