Marbella’s famous Golden Mile

Marbella Club HotelMarbella’s Golden Mile is one of the most prestigious addresses in Europe. Spanning the four kilometres between Puerto Banús and Marbella town centre, it forms a glamorous palm tree lined boulevard flanked by parks and grand estates. Exclusivity, luxury, opulence and desirability are the buzzwords when it comes to Golden Mile properties. It is home to mansions and estates as well as two of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ and even a Saudi palace! King Fahd was a regular visitor from 1974 until his death in 2005, and was famous for spending millions when he was in residence, allegedly sending his staff to department stores for new dinner services, glassware and cutlery every day! The nearby King Abdelaziz Mosque (built for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia) was the first mosque built in Spain after the fifteenth century expulsion of the Moors and has become a Marbella landmark. Since the 1950s, the Golden Mile has been popular with the rich and famous: VIPs, aristocrats, royals, movie stars and celebrities made up the Marbella’s jet set that partied and luxuriated in the iconic Marbella Club Hotel founded by Prince Alfonso de Hohenlohe-Langenburg, and later on at the Puente Romano. The area’s popularity with these elite visitors created a demand for elegant properties to be constructed for those looking to establish a more permanent base in the European place to be seen. Some of the original apartment communities continue to be the most sought after today. Puente Romano Apartments, Marbellamar and La Alcazaba are prime, frontline beach examples, just metres from the sandy shores of the Mediterranean, built around tropical gardens, dramatic water features and inviting swimming pools, while conveniently located within walking distance to fashion boutiques, beauty salons and some of the best restaurants in Spain. Beach club view Marbella Golden MileThe villas surrounding the Puente Romano and Marbella Club hotels boast some of the most beautiful properties on the Golden Mile, while the beachfront mansions lining the seaside promenade have to rate among the most impressive residences in the world. Despite its history and riches, the Golden Mile does have properties to accommodate a range of buyers from those seeking a small bolt hole to those inspired to find their ideal eight bedroom palace. As you might expect from one of the best addresses in the world, properties on the Golden Mile are not cheap but are generally considered to be a first rate investment for the future.
