A little-known residential gem in the heart of one of the most popular areas in Marbella? It may be hard to believe, but La Cerquilla certainly fits the description. Although it is a select enclave of sumptuous villas, it still flies under the Marbella property radar – but we’re here to let you into a little secret: La Cerquilla is one of the best places in Marbella if you’re searching for prestigious property in a leafy, convenient location.
Heart of the Golf Valley
Situated in the heart of the Golf Valley, this privileged suburb has very little through traffic, thereby offering a haven of peace and tranquillity even during the busier summer months. La Cerquilla is established around quiet roads that wind their way up a gentle incline towards the upper reaches of Nueva Andalucía, nestling in the foothills of the mountains that provide the stunning backdrop for which Marbella is famous.
This modest-sized leafy neighbourhood is sprinkled with more than its fair share of expansive luxury villas, townhouses and exclusive apartments and penthouses. The majority, thanks to their setting on the undulating hills, have views of both emerald green golf fairways and the sparkling Mediterranean sea that is just a 20-minute drive away.
With some of the best courses in the area, including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos and Aloha, it is a paradise for golfers, as well as being ideally placed for a myriad of restaurants, shops and entertainment options.
Everything on your doorstep
Located in the very heart of Nueva Andalucía means there are a wealth of amenities a short drive from your front door. From supermarkets to chic boutiques, to a wide variety of bars and restaurants, you never have to leave Nueva Andalucía unless you want to. For an evening of glitzy fun, however, alluring Puerto Banús is a five-minute drive away, with its upmarket designer stores, restaurants and famously, its yacht-filled marina. A little further along the coast, the attractive boulevard affectionately nicknamed ‘the Golden Mile’ leads to Marbella, with its fine-dining restaurants, historic Old Town and wide seaside promenade, the Paseo Maritimo.
Families are well served, with one of the best international schools on the coast less than five minutes away, as well as local Spanish schools, Swedish, German, bilingual and English curriculum schools within reaching distance.
Desirable property in a perfect location
This small but perfectly formed neighbourhood-within-a-neighbourhood has a low density of construction, with flower and tree-lined tranquil avenues. Expect to find luxury, gated apartment complexes, attractive townhouses and spectacular villas set in their own grounds featuring manicured gardens and enviable views.
The style of villas in this exclusive community ranges from ultra-modern to traditional Andalusian, although it has become harder to find properties that haven’t been totally reformed to offer the range of luxury amenities, quality specifications and attention to detail that are to be found in new-build properties.
