El Madroñal Special
Some of the most private villas near Marbella are in El Madroñal
Each area in the greater region of Marbella has something special about it. Last week, we talked about living in the Los Flamingos Golf Resort. Today, we want to introduce El Madroñal to you. Because this community is situated so peacefully, that it almost seems to shy away from the attention. Are you on the lookout for private villas near Marbella? Then El Madroñal could be just your thing. Here’s why:
True Andalusian Peace & Quiet
The drive from Marbella to El Madroñal is a short one, so it’s hard to believe the surroundings when you arrive. The estate lies in traditional Andalusian countryside, being surrounded by the beginnings of an expansive Mediterranean forest with cork trees, strawberry trees and pines. The tranquillity and privacy of this area are unrivalled and explains its popularity. Ever since the ‘60s El Madroñal villas have been beloved homes in which people enjoyed a high quality of living in natural surroundings. With the woodlands behind you and the sea in front of you, the serene nature is breathtaking.
Private, but not isolated
Added to the peace and quiet is the assuring knowledge of a secure home. El Madroñal is a gated community, with electronic gates and 24-hour security patrols. Because of this, the villas in El Madroñal are counted as some of the most private villas near Marbella. But that doesn’t mean you’re hopelessly isolated, either. In fact, everything is just around the corner. Puerto Banús, Marbella, various quality golf courses and of course the beach are a mere 10 to 15 minutes away. Even closer, there’s the Monte Halcones Commercial Centre with shops, bars and restaurants, a bank and dry cleaners at 5 minutes distance at the most. For other first-class amenities and services there’s San Pedro with schools, medical and sports facilities amongst others.
And what would the El Madroñal villas be without the views? Like the prestigious estate of La Zagleta nearby, El Madronal has incredible views towards the sea, the nearby hills and golf courses, and of course the Mediterranean Sea. But it is close to the sea than La Zagleta, offering better access and closer views. For some the El Madroñal villas, their hilltop position allows unique views of Africa and Gibraltar, and of the Sierra de las Nieves mountain range behind them. And all that from your very own tropical garden.
Although there are some medium-sized plots in the area, most homes in El Madroñal are villas on large plots with gardens and private pools. When you drive through one of the secure gates and along the roads leading up to your home, you can be sure that all of your neighbours enjoy the Andalusian peace and quiet just as much as you do. As one resident said, “it offers the possibility of living the country life within 5 or 6 minutes of Puerto Banús.” And with like-minded neighbours as good company, there’s not a thing to worry about.
