Cascada de Camoján Area Guide

Callum Swan, May 2022

The name, Cascada de Camoján, refers to a cascading stream that forms part of the protected natural scenery of this area at the foot of the mountain. This means residents of Cascada de Camoján have the beauty and seclusion of natural scenery that is ideal for walking and hiking right on their doorsteps.

In spite of this sense of privacy and seclusion, this prime residential zone is also close to all amenities, including shopping, nightlife, schools, medical and other professional services, not to mention beaches, golf, sports clubs and spa facilities.

Location

The small, select residential area of Cascada de Camoján is located within the larger Sierra Blanca area. Set at the base of the La Concha Mountain, it is the upper extension of the luxurious Golden Mile and lies under two kilometres from its beaches and two kilometres from downtown Marbella.

Created within a canopy of umbrella pine, Cascada de Camoján is a gated community within the larger semi-gated community of Sierra Blanca. Manned security and restricted access to the community provide residents with an even greater feel of privacy and tranquillity in an area whose leafy streets are free of passing traffic.

History

Cascada de Camoján developed originally in the 1970s through the building of a small number of villas on large plots surrounded by nature and overlooking Marbella, the Golden Mile and the sea. It was in the 1990s that the area took form with the construction of more luxurious villas and the exclusive architecturally styled apartment complex of Imara Marbella.

There is also a small collection of luxurious townhouses within Cascáda de Camoján, at the exclusive Hill Club Sierra Blanca, where what are in reality compact villas of over 300m2 set within a gated community with luxury amenities and lush, semi-tropical gardens with stunning views down to Marbella and the sea.

Now Cascada de Camoján is a largely matured residential area with a five-star deluxe feel and attractive homes on sizeable grounds, lush mature gardens and few plots available for building. These characteristics, along with the fact that Cascada de Camoján borders a protected natural reserve of great beauty, will continue to add value to one of the finest suburbs close to Marbella town.

Views

Thanks to its topography – a gently raised position at an altitude of 75 metres, Cascada de Camoján enjoys wonderful views across Marbella, the Golden Mile and coastline extending beyond Puerto Banús and Nueva Andalucía.

  • Views straight across to Marbella and Golden Mile
