La Zagaleta – the most prestigious real estate near Marbella

La Zagaleta, situated on the Ronda road and within easy reach of Marbella and San Pedro, is the most prestigious residential real estate development in Europe.

Situated 400 metres above sea level and only 10km from the coast, this beautiful estate covers 2,000 acres, and boasts incredible views of the sea and surrounding Serrania de Ronda mountains and countryside.  Building plots can be bought here on which to build your own luxurious villa, and luxurious resale properties are also available.

The sun shines for an average of 320 days per year on the Costa del Sol, and there is no better place to enjoy the incredible weather than in the luxury of La Zagaleta.

Offering a very high level of privacy, security and exclusivity, with a gated entrance to the estate, every plot in La Zagaleta is situated in a tranquil area surrounded by the countryside.  Superstars such as Rod Stewart and Sting have been regular visitors to La Zagaleta.

The beauty of La Zagaleta is that the number of homes there is limited to 420.  Where many developments go on and on with new phases each year, to keep this fabulous estate exclusive, the limit of properties within it will always be kept to this number. 

In today´s hectic world, where technology makes us possible to reach 24 hours a day, La Zagaleta still manages to enjoy a world of its own, while staying connected to the rest of the world. After you enter the main gate, the first thing you will notice is the trees and the unspoilt countryside. Aside from the odd golf buggy rolling by, the peace and quiet seems to draw you in.  La Zagaleta is not only a place to enjoy, but it provides all residents with a sound investment for the future.

Two superb golf courses are situated within the estate, aptly named La Zagaleta and Los Barrancos, and access to both of these is restricted to members and residents. Both of these courses are challenging and boast stunning views from the greens and fairways.

Other facilities include a private equestrian club for members and residents with 23 stables and 4 rings.  Arabian and Spanish horses are stabled here along with ponies and Farabella horses for the youngsters who want to explore the area on horseback.  For novices, there is also an instructor on hand.

The clubhouse offers much more than its name suggests, and facilities include: summer and winter restaurants, meeting rooms, a bar, cafeteria, snack bar and barbecue area next to the pool, a library, a fully-equipped party pavilion, a disco, a billiard room, a bowling alley, a swimming pool, a sauna and a pro shop.

For fishing enthusiasts, there are 3 private lakes within La Zagaleta to try and catch supper, and also several hard and clay tennis courts for the more energetic to enjoy.
