The next in our series of articles looking at different parts of areas to buy real estate in the western Costa del Sol, we move to La Quinta. This golf-based residential area offers homeowners multiple benefits, including location, surroundings, scenery, and onsite amenities. Not for nothing is it one of the most popular places for second and holiday homes in Marbella. If you’d like to know more about this spot, read on to discover why to buy property in La Quinta.
Location is always a top consideration when you’re buying property and we think La Quinta ticks all the boxes in this department. It sits in an elevated position to the north of Nueva Andalucía in the foothills of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Yet it’s just a short drive to the bright lights in nearby Marbella and Puerto Banús.
La Quinta’s location, therefore, gives you the best of both worlds. While you’re at home, you can sit back and relax in quiet and scenic surroundings. And then, when you want a piece of the action, head for the coast around 10 minutes away.
As we said, the property in La Quinta enjoys an optimum location.
Peace and quiet
Some buyers want to be at the heart of a resort. On the other hand, many prefer a property in a more tranquil location. Peace and quiet are an added advantage in the summer months when many areas are packed to bursting points with tourists.
Buy property at La Quinta and tranquillity is a given. Even more so if you choose a home in the gated communities within the residential area, such as La Reserva de la Quinta and El Herrojo.
Like we said, a tranquil place to live.
Social hub and amenities
Yet, despite this peace and quiet, La Quinta also offers onsite amenities based around Westin La Quinta. Here you’ll find a social hub that thrives all year round and includes facilities such as restaurants, a kid’s club and a spa. Sports fans will welcome the gym and tennis courts.
Then, of course, there’s the golf. La Quinta Golf & Country Club has no less than three 9-hole courses, providing excellent opportunities for golf enthusiasts. Also worth checking out are the amenities at Real de la Quinta, a new development at La Quinta. They include the Lake Club with an artificial beach.
And everything else you might need is in nearby Marbella where you’ll find a world of restaurants, great shopping, top schools and first-class health facilities.
Like we said, all you need and within easy reach.
Stunning scenery on your doorstep
As you drive up to La Quinta, you’ll be struck by its beautiful location, surrounded by beautiful nature. The residential area has the privilege of being in one of the greenest spots in Marbella with verdant hills and mountains everywhere you look.
This countryside offers endless possibilities to enjoy the great outdoors. Hiking fans have lovely walks on their doorstep and the horse riding routes in the area rank as some of the most scenic in Marbella. And even if you’re not a walking or riding lover, the scenery offers some great views and enhances the tranquillity in La Quinta.
Like we said, pristine nature outside your front door.
Gorgeous views from your property
When you take this incredible scenery and add an elevated position, you get simply fabulous views. The spectacular mountains of Sierra de las Nieves (Spain’s latest National Park) lie to the north, while there are more mountain ranges to the east and west. And, of course, there’s the Mediterranean sparkling in the south with Africa on the horizon.
When you buy property in La Quinta, those vistas come standard and are particularly stunning in homes with a south-facing orientation. Don’t miss the sunrises and sunsets over the ocean in the winter months.
Like we said, views that are second to none.
Frontline golf properties
Owning a property with exceptional views of immaculate greens and fairways is a dream come true for many foreigners looking to buy on the Costa del Sol. At La Quinta, it’s easy to find frontline golf homes, including apartments, townhouses and villas.
Like we said, premier golf course views are no problem!
Choice of properties
Our last compelling reason to buy property in La Quinta Marbella lies in the real estate itself. This residential area offers all types of homes, from lock-up-and-go apartments to princely villas with just about everything in between.
