Properties For Sale in Los Monteros
Located on the eastern outskirts of the town centre, Los Monteros is one of Marbella’s most highly coveted luxury residential estates. This is partly because of its close proximity to the urban area’s first-class services and amenities, but also because Los Monteros has always been determined to preserve its well-deserved reputation as a high-end residential haven where both residents and elite holidaymakers are ensured absolute privacy and security.
Its tree-lined avenues, tranquil ambience and affluent lifestyle are further enhanced by a picturesque championship golf course that meanders through the Río Real urbanisation all the way down to the sea and Los Monteros’ impressively attractive coastal beach area.
Promas Estates has a magnificent selection of luxury properties throughout the Los Monteros area. Over the decades, Los Monteros has gradually extended upwards and outwards from its millionaire’s row of penthouses overlooking the Mediterranean and elegant beachside villas to state-of-the-art contemporary villas and townhouses in the area’s more recently-developed heights.
This increasingly popular area on the non-beach side of the main coastal highway that divides Los Monteros into two also offers home buyers a superb range of low-rise apartment complexes complete with landscaped gardens, pools and beautifully appointed living areas.
Los Monteros is an area of two diverse but equally exceptional residential parts. The beachside developments are home to some of Promas Estates’ most spectacular penthouses, offering breathtaking views and spacious terraces where luxury Marbella living can be enjoyed to the fullest.
Across the highway, rising into the Marbella mountains, the views from low-density residential estates are just as spectacular, especially from townhouse rooftop terraces equipped with jacuzzis and pergolas. There is also excellent transport access between the two parts of Los Monteros.
Since the early days of its development over half a century ago, Los Monteros has been home to the crême de la crême of Marbella and international society. Antonio Banderas and his then wife Melanie Griffith purchased a beachside villa when she was pregnant with their daughter, and Stella del Carmen was born in 1996 in the nearby Costa del Sol International Hospital
Hollywood actress Deborah Kerr and screenwriter Peter Viertel were among the first international celebrities to settle in Marbella in the 1960s, and they were able to enjoy a discreet luxury lifestyle in the Río Real area for several decades, while Newcastle United football club and Newcastle Falcons rugby club chairman Sir John Hall owned a mansion near where the Marbella Rugby Club ground was built in 1993.
Most people contemplating buying a home in Los Monteros share the same desire for privacy, security and ultra-select living as the early international residents, and the more popular properties at that luxury end of the market tend to be in the one to two million-plus euro range.
Promas Estates is also prominent in the Marbella property sector when it comes to medium-range homes for people seeking a regular holiday retreat for their extended families or groups of visiting friends, with superb apartments and townhouses available from €250,000. These are, in addition, ideal for buy-to-let investors, with the rental market currently flourishing in Marbella.
One of Los Monteros’ greatest appeals for residents and visitors is that it is so close to Marbella’s town centre, with all the services and facilities of a modern Spanish city. It is also just a short drive around the Marbella bypass to Puerto Banús, Nueva Andalucía and San Pedro de Alcántara, passing by the vast La Cañada luxury commercial centre.
To the east, Los Monteros is conveniently located close to other top shopping amenities, the Costa del Sol International Hospital, sport and leisure activities for all ages, and dining establishments for every taste and whim. For golfers, Los Monteros has three of Marbella’s finest golf courses: Río Real, Santa Clara and Marbella Golf & Country Club.
Los Monteros is set in the lap of beach luxury, with stunning stretches of white-sand beaches lapped by glistening Mediterranean waters. The perfect setting for those who enjoy natural beach surroundings, but also for residents and visitors keen to enjoy Marbella’s high life.
Sumptuous Los Monteros beach clubs such as La Cabane (part of the Los Monteros hotel resort) and Trocadero are where the cool people spend their chilled-out days by the sea, while a modern boardwalk into the nearby urban centre passes by Opium beach club and on to the Playa Padre restaurant looking out towards the town’s iconic cable structure.
