More about La Zagaleta
Tucked into the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja mountain ranges that separate the Costa del Sol from its beautiful hinterland, La Zagaleta is an exclusive country club estate.
From their elevated position, properties here enjoy breathtaking views of the Mediterranean coastline, looking out over the glistening blue sea towards Gibraltar and Morocco.
Surrounded by open countryside, La Zagaleta enjoys a peaceful, rural location, yet is just minutes away from the delightful town of San Pedro, the glamorous marina of Puerto Banús, and the beaches, bright lights and attractions of Marbella.
La Zagaleta characteristics
As one of the most prestigious addresses in Europe, let alone Marbella, La Zagaleta is renowned as an elite country club, perfect for those who prize peace, privacy and security.
The vision of La Zagaleta was that of Enrique Perez Flores, who began to develop the resort in 1991. He bought the land from the notorious Saudi arms dealer, Adnan Khashoggi, who used the estate as his hunting grounds. Initially there were no properties, aside from Khashoggi’s house – which has now famously become The Clubhouse – and Flores set about creating a select community, keeping development to a minimum.
La Zagaleta has stayed true to Flores’ initial concept and is now understandably one of the most exclusive and expensive areas in the region – but with this price tag come endless benefits.
Properties here are all set within large private grounds and, as a gated community, benefit from the site’s state-of-the-art security system. This is further enhanced by the convenience of a 24-hour concierge service.
Public areas are beautifully manicured and maintained to meticulously high standards. All homeowners can become members of the residents’ only golf club, with its stylish clubhouse, social club, bar and restaurant. There is also a first-class horse-riding centre and racquets club.
Measuring almost 900 hectares, La Zagaleta is spacious and enveloped in greenery. There is a protected nature reserve where deer roam freely by the picturesque waterfall and streams, and wild birds fly amongst the wooded groves.
Residents of La Zagaleta are typically those who value privacy and exclusivity. The exceptional environment attracts many of the rich and famous from Europe, North America, the Middle East and beyond who come to enjoy nature, comfort, luxury, privacy and the exclusivity of this address.
The area is especially loved by Russian buyers, who favour the opulent villas and mansions La Zagaleta offers. By choosing a property here you can be close to the excitement of Marbella and Puerto Banús yet escape back to enjoy the uninterrupted tranquillity of your La Zagaleta home.
