Showpiece Homes and Luxury Living… Cabopino

Just mentioning the word Mediterranean conjures up an image of blissfully sunny days, long stretches of inviting beach, languid al fresco lunches by the sea… and boating on glistening waters. And, when it comes to enjoying this highly coveted lifestyle, the Costa del Sol is one of the key ports of call. At its western end is the only nautical entrance to the Mediterranean (Gibraltar) and the first luxuriously appointed marina for visiting sailors arriving through the Straits (Sotogrande). Further east is one of southern Europe’s premier cruise ship ports (Málaga) and Real Club de Mediterráneo (the oldest yacht club in Spain), while the 100 kilometres of coastline in between is dotted with some of Spain’s finest marina facilities. In fact, 12 in all, offering 4,000 berths and a diverse range of services and amenities including boat rental, water sports activities, and dining and entertainment options. The most renowned, of course, is luxury hotspot Puerto Banús, but there are other popular marinas in Caleta de Vélez, Benalmádena, Fuengirola. Estepona, La Duquesa… and Marbella. In the latter case, somewhat hidden away at the eastern end of the municipality, 10 kilometres from the city centre, is Cabopino. This charming residential and leisure area is centred on the port – with its 170 or so berths (of eight to 16 metres), and wide range of restaurants and bars – but over the years it has expanded and flourished as one of Marbella’s premier addresses, with high-end properties including apartments overlooking the beach and frontline golf villas, in stunningly verdant and natural surroundings. Bordering the marina is Artola beach, a protected natural area of sweeping dunes (some of which have become popular with naturists), while another attractive beach area is Las Cañas, with its scattering of white homes in the midst of lush vegetation extending down to the sea. For top sports amenities, the showpiece is Cabopino Golf. Located on the border of Marbella and Mijas Costa, the 18-hole course offers players breathtaking sea views – including the spectacular third, which drops 200 metres to the fairway. It has a 250-metre long driving range and a golfing academy for those wanting to take up the sport or fine-tune their game. Just how impressive is its setting is emphasised by the contemporary villa project featured here, just a short drove from the beach and marina, and close to shops, schools, a children’s playground and transport. This particular four-bedroom, south-orientating detached property extends over 388 square metres of built area on a 980 square metre plot. It comprises a private pool and garden, covered terrace, fully-fitted kitchen, fireplace, jacuzzi, double-glazing, video entrance, 24-hour security service, under-floor heating throughout, central heating and air-conditioning, automatic irrigation system and garage. In short, an ideal opportunity to own a magnificent new holiday home in an excellent location, or an investment property.

Meanwhile, currently being held in London is the inaugural Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show, where enthusiasts have been able to admire the displays of 120 leading luxury exhibitors. What better place then to find a dream yacht to berth at your new dream home in Cabopino. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Princess Motor Yacht Sales was one of the top brands exhibiting a selection of its models at the Old Billingsgate and St Katherine Docks: the Princess 98 and 88, and the Princess V72 sports coupé. Also present was ER Yacht Design, although the owner who ordered this vessel – a naval-architecture redesign of a classic sixties-built superyacht – will have to berth it offshore when visiting Cabopino for lunch!
