Things to do in La Zagaleta

La Zagaleta is an exclusive countryside estate. As a property owner here, you’ll find your every whim catered for. You won’t be left wondering what to do – rather, how do I fit it all in?

Combining privacy with the highest standard of luxury and service, villas boast every amenity imaginable. Spend time working out in your personal gym, cool off in your infinity pool or relax in your state-of-the-art entertainment room.

With so much quite literally on your doorstep, you’d be forgiven for never leaving home. But, should you wish to venture outside of your own spacious premises, La Zagaleta offers a range of activities for the private use of residents and their guests.


Activities on offer

Renowned for its golf, there are two 18-hole courses – La Zagaleta and Los Barrancos. Both offer a unique and challenging golf experience set amidst lush mountain scenery.

Enjoy a well-earned drink in The Clubhouse bar after your game. This exceptional country club also offers 2 excellent restaurants, a pro-golf shop, swimming pool, billiard/pool room, bridge games room and ball room.

If golf isn’t your thing, how about a spot of tennis? There’s even a court dedicated to paddle tennis – a fun variation of the game combining elements of tennis, squash and badminton, that’s very popular in Marbella.

La Zagaleta is also home to a first-class equestrian centre – The Riding Club – providing facilities for stabling, grooming and coaching. Here all ages and abilities can learn to ride and benefit from expert coaching.

Alternatively, get in touch with nature and enjoy a stroll amongst the winding streams and waterfalls or the nature reserve – you might even spot one of the resident deer.



La Zagaletta is in an enviable location. Set in peaceful countryside yet just a short drive to the glamorous marina of Puerto Banús and the famous Marbella – playground to the rich and famous. Here you’ll find an abundance of high-end boutiques, distinguished restaurants and lively beach clubs.

With so much on offer, La Zagaleta really is the ideal location to purchase your luxury home. Tempted? Take a look at our extensive property portfolio here at Bromley Estates Marbella or get in touch using our online message service or by emailing

Build your dream home in La Zagaleta

Build your dream home in La Zagaleta

Looking for the home of your dreams on the Costa del Sol? Struggling to find something that ticks all your boxes? Then look no further. Bromley Estates Marbella are excited to offer a selection of land plots in the prestigious resort of La Zagaleta. Meaning you could be in control of building your own dream home from the foundations up. La Zagaleta is renowned as Europe’s most exclusive residential complex.

When it comes to buying property you invariably have a long wish list – lagoon shaped tropical pool, large garden, x number of bedrooms, south orientation, stunning views – to name a few.  When you’re making such a large investment it needs to be right. At this level of investment, one should not expect to make compromises. That’s why building your own villa is such an exciting opportunity. Taking on your own build puts you in the driving seat from day one. Every design feature, fixture and fitting can be chosen, bespoke by you.

The first item on your checklist is usually location. Well, rest assured that addresses don’t come in much higher demand than those in La Zagaleta. Just 10 minutes from the attractions of Marbella and Puerto Banús, this secluded resort prides itself on peace, privacy and security. If you were to build here, you would gain exclusive use of the site’s 2 golf courses, riding centre and tennis courts. More importantly, your premises would be protected by the state-of-the-art security and 24-hour concierge service that is in place to ensure La Zagaleta is enjoyed exclusively by its residents.

Development in La Zagaleta is kept to a minimum, ensuring that all homes benefit from vast amounts of space, beautiful views and privacy. Property and land here are snapped up quickly but we currently have a limited number of plots on the market. Some of these include a small villa within the grounds, which could be lived in whilst the build takes place – meaning you can be on hand to oversee decisions. This could then be knocked down, serve as a separate guest house or be used as staff quarters.

Don’t be deterred by Spanish law and building regulations. We have a wealth of experience and will guide you through the process. Most plots fall under the jurisdiction of Benahavis council, so planning permission should be granted relatively quickly, leaving you to get on with building.

Take a look at the plots we have available or contact us using our messaging service or by emailing info@bromleyestatesmarbella. A member of our team would be delighted to answer any questions you have and will happily accompany you to visit La Zagaleta and help you explore the endless possibilities land here could present.

Your guide to buying property in La Zagaleta

Your guide to buying property in La Zagaleta

Set in the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja Mountains, La Zagaleta is one of the most sought-after residential addresses on the Costa del Sol.

If you’re considering buying a property in this area, then congratulations on already making an excellent choice. Villas here are second-to-none and – coupled with the local expertise of Bromley Estates Marbella and our impressive property portfolio – you could be poolside in your dream home sooner than you think.


Why La Zagaleta?

La Zagaleta is perfect if you’re seeking luxury and exclusivity. From its privileged position, looking out over the Mediterranean coastline, this gated countryside estate covers over 900 hectares of secure, private land.

Homes here benefit from world-class on-site amenities. They include:

  • 24-hour concierge service
  • 24-hour surveillance system
  • Two 18 hole golf courses – La Zagaleta and Los Barrancos
  • Clubhouse
  • Tennis club
  • ‘The Riding Club’ equestrian centre
  • Nature reserve

With all this at your fingertips, there’s little need to venture far. But, if you fancy upping the tempo, La Zagaleta is just a short drive from the glitz and glamour of Marbella and Puerto Banús.


Types of property available

La Zagaleta predominately offers luxury villas, although there are also a selection of contemporary apartments to choose from.

Villas here rank among the best in Marbella, all set within the manicured grounds of large plots that ensure space, privacy and uninterrupted views.

Typical property features include spas, gyms, wine cellars, home cinemas, entertainment rooms and, in some cases, even helipads.

Exclusivity is key to La Zagelata’s appeal, so further development is intentionally kept to a minimum. That said, we do have a number of plots available, for those who prefer to be involved in the design and building process from the outset.


Property prices

Homes in this area are hugely sought after and have consistently retained their high retail value. As a guide, prices start at several million euros and can rise well beyond that.


The buying process

You’ve decided La Zagaleta is the place for you, but what happens next?

Once you find the perfect property, the next step is to draw up a reservation contract. This is standard procedure in Spain, allowing you to reserve a property for a period of time during which your lawyer conducts a thorough investigation of the property.

Once this ‘due diligence’ has been carried out, your lawyer will inform you of their findings. You can then move the buying process forward to a private purchase contract. This is the formal contract between consumer and vendor setting out the terms and conditions of the purchase.


Next steps

If this is your first time buying property in Spain it can be a steep learning curve. Why not allow our experienced team here at Bromley Estates Marbella to guide you through the process? We have a stunning range of properties currently available and a wealth of knowledge at your disposal. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond our clients’ expectations and won’t rest until you are united with your dream home.

Spain ranked fifth in the world for Michelin stars

Spain ranked fifth in the world for Michelin stars

Spain is well loved for its balmy climate, warm natured people, fabulous amenities and glorious coastline but it is becoming well known for its gastronomy having its fair share of Michelin stars, ranking it fifth in the world in fact for number of Michelin stars.
With some of the finest and freshest ingredients to work with including manchego cheese, extra virgin olive oil, jamon iberico, fresh seafood, Spain boasts an incredible selection of cuisine and is a top producer of cava, wine and sherry.

So where can you find some of these gems?

Costa del Sol/Costa Blanca: The region’s sole 3-star is Quique Dacosta in Denia on the Costa Blanca, halfway between Barcelona and the Costa del Sol. The 2-star Dani García in Málaga, named after its chef, whose personal slogan is “cooking with tradition.”

Costa Brava: The 3-star El Celler de Can Roca in Girona has twice topped the vaunted World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, and is currently third, arguably Spain’s most famous eatery.  Miramar and Les Cols, also in Girona, round out the region’s 2-star winners.

Barcelona: Martín Berasategui is the nation’s only chef with multiple 3-Michelin starred eateries. His eponymous one is in San Sebastian, but his cuisine is more accessible at its sister restaurant Lasarte, Elsewhere in Barcelona, AbacEnoteca and Moments are the city’s trio of 2-star winners for 2017.

Balearic Isles: For hardcore foodies, Mallorca has far and away the wealthiest fine dining selection in the island group, including the only 2-star, Zaranda. Mallorca is home to half a dozen 1-stars: JardínEs Moli d’en BouAndreu GenestraEs Racó d’es TeixSimply Fosh, and Es Fum.

In this vast country if you are looking for a gastronomical feast of Michelin starred quality you will surely find somewhere that whets your appetite.
