Marbella’s iconic Golden Mile

Louise Swan, March 2015 | Areas - Our view

Marbella’s Golden Mile is synonymous with luxury and exclusivity. Located between Puerto Banús and Marbella centre, this stretch of coastline is home to some of the most desirable properties on the Costa del Sol.

At the heart of the four mile long Golden Mile are the world famous Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels, known for welcoming the rich and famous celebrity jetset over more than six decades. Many of Marbella’s top restaurants can be found within the two hotels. Marbella Club is home to the elegant MC Café, classic Marbella Club Grill and MC Beach – a contemporary twist on the traditional Marbella chiringuito. Two Michelin star chef Dani García chose to open his two new restaurants in the Hotel Puente Romano – Restaurante Dani García with its incredible tasting menu and the brasserie Bibo. The Italian restaurant Serafina, Sea Grill and London’s Japanese restaurant UNI are also very popular there. While in the area, the fantastic Villa Tiberio with its enchanting 6,000 square metre landscaped garden is well worth a visit.

Linking up the designer boutiques in Puerto Banús with the huge array of top name brands on offer in Marbella centre, the Golden Mile is equally important to those who love to shop. Cartier, Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Dior and Hermès rub shoulders with Spanish high street favourites to create the perfect shopping zone for visitors and locals.

When it comes to property investment the Golden Mile is always in demand, and thanks to its enduring popularity, property values have remained constant. The villas, houses and apartments here command some of the highest prices on the Costa del Sol, especially those positioned on the south side (beachside) of the main dual carriageway.

Some of the most extravagant and opulent mansions on the Costa del Sol are situated on the Golden Mile. For example, this magnificent 14-bedroom home sits on a frontline beach, south facing plot of over 4,400 square metres and incorporates two guest bungalows as well as staff accommodation.

It’s rare to find a quality frontline beach bungalow and although this beautifully maintained four bedroom property could benefit from some modernisation, its unbeatable location just steps away from the beach makes it a must view.

Rentals are available on the Golden Mile, either close to the beach or in a more elevated position with spectacular views. Just minutes walk from the Marbella Club Hotel, this luxurious ten-bedroom villa is truly unique, occupying a large 6,000m2 beachfront plot with gardens, tennis, cinema room, gym, staff accommodation and excellent entertaining areas.

The Golden Mile attracts affluent families and couples seeking fine architecture and quality construction in a convenient, well respected and, most importantly, beautiful area of Marbella where sophistication is king. Browse our Marbella Golden Mile properties for more information…
