Situated 8km inland and approximately 500 metres above sea level, is the mountain village of Benahavis. Despite its great connections with the likes of Estepona and Marbella, it has managed to retain its traditional Andalucian feel. For those who enjoy playing golf, there are many high quality golf courses nearby to choose from. For those who enjoy fine wining and dining, Benahavis benefits from possibly the highest concentration of high class restaurants in the entire Costa del Sol.
Due to the large number of high end developments in the adjoining resorts of Los Arequeros, La Quinta, and the ultra exclusive La Zagaleta, Benahavis it is one of the richest areas of Spain, with a high percentage of expat residents buying property here for the tranquillity it offers, whilst remaining in close proximity to Marbella.
