Where is Cascada de Camoján?
North of the Golden Mile of Marbella and bordering Sierra Blanca to the west, there is no through road from Cascada de Camoján, which increases the sense of peace and security its residents prize so highly. The name is derived from the waterfalls that appear in the spring, flowing from the Río Guadalpín in the hilly interior that is the natural backdrop to this beautiful area.
What does it have to offer?
Much lower-density construction in this area in comparison to its neighbour gives Camoján a more natural, spacious feel, with properties in large plots laid out through the Mediterranean pines offering the feeling of being in an oasis of peace and tranquillity – even though glamorous Marbella and up-market Puerto Banús are just a matter of minutes away.
Properties are not laid out in a formal plan, therefore the shady, winding roads through the secure community feel more like country lanes than an urbanised area.
One of the main attractions for the affluent residents who live and holiday here is just this fact – they can enjoy the peace, tranquillity and security of a neighbourhood that is nevertheless on the doorstep of all the entertainment and amenities that are offered by Marbella and Puerto Banús.
Nestling in the foothills of the La Concha mountain offers a spectacular setting for this neighbourhood and due to the rolling hills on which it is laid, means that many of these villas offer fabulous sea views.
What is there to do?
Cascada de Camoján per se doesn’t have many amenities – and for the residents, this is one of the blessings of the neighbourhood. It is quiet and peaceful and, having no egress to the east, there is no through traffic. However, the popularity of this area comes from the fact that Marbella and Puerto Banús are on the doorstep. So, while other exclusive residential areas may offer peace and security, but be half an hour down a mountain to get to civilisation, Camoján instead truly offers that most elusive element in property selection – the best of all worlds.
Is Cascada de Camoján good for families?
Most definitely. The secure, gated community offers a safe environment for families, while Swans, one of the oldest and most renowned international schools in the area, is a five-minute drive away in Sierra Blanca. There are other international schools in the area, none of which would be more than a 20-minute drive away.
What property is available?
Exclusivity is the name of the game in Camoján. The small area is mainly laid to villas, however there are a couple of luxury apartment complexes within the gated urbanisation. In general, villas are exclusive and luxurious, and are built to the highest specifications. They mainly have large plots and prices typically start at €1.5million, although there are several that cost many times that amount. The discretion, security and privacy of Cascada de Camoján comes at a price, however, there is no doubt that for many, it is worth it.
