Covering an extremely large area of land, there are surprisingly very few apartments, townhouses and Villas for sale in The Golden Mile, Marbella, mainly due to the extremely high price of land, but also due to there being several 5* Luxury Hotels located on the beachfront – namely the Puente Romano, Marbella Club, Coral Beach Iberostar and the Melia Don Pepe.
To the north side of The Golden Mile you will find King Fahd’s Palace, occupying a massive area of land containing well…a palace! The palace is built from marble and gold and is built in a replica style of the White House in Washington. King Fahd’s entourage (prior to his death in 2005) were rumoured to spend up to €5,000,000 per day whilst in Marbella!
Behind the Palace you will find the lower area of Sierra Blanca, a beautiful location containing many of Marbella’s “Super Villas,” with breathtaking views to the sea, Morocco and Gibraltar. Just behind The Golden Mile, and one of King Fahd’s neighbours is the beautiful Olivia Valere Nightclub and several ultra exclusive apartment developments such as La Trinidad, Las Lomas de Sierra Blanca and the newest kid on the block, The World Marbella; which will be home to some of the most luxurious and stylish apartments for sale in Marbella.
To the east of the Palace you will find the Mosque (again built by King Fahd), and a handful of townhouse and apartment developments – Las Lomas de Marbella Club Pueblo, Senorio de Marbella, Solana de Nagueles, La Virginia, Mansion Club, Meisho Hills, Coto Real and Kings Hills – Las Lomas de Marbella Club is a large area mainly occupied by the above apartments or several super exclusive private villas.
The Golden Mile is surprisingly spread out, so finding a property that’s within easy walking distance to both amenities and the beach is actually quite difficult. Easy beach access developments (actually most of these are all frontline beach located) are Diamond Beach, Coral Beach, Playa Esmerelda, Benalus, Oasis Club, Puente Romano apartments and if the budget will stretch, the Marbella Club itself.
