La Zagaleta: The Most Luxurious Holiday Destination in Marbella?

La Zagaleta: The Most Luxurious Holiday Destination in Marbella?

The Swish experience is all about precious rest and relaxation, pampering and of course, the fabulous Mediterranean climate.  The beach is an integral part of a summer vacation in Marbella, but you may not have realised we also offer luxury rentals in Marbella’s most premium non-coastal areas, such as La Zagaleta estate.

A Swish stay in La Zagaleta offers a different kind of Marbella experience from the likes of the Golden Mile and Nueva Andalucia, which are also both very prestigious areas. The feeling in La Zagaleta is unique, it is a special, closed world that is rarely accessible.

Swish open up homes in La Zagaleta, so you can enjoy a precious retreat, and views like this one, from Villa Pallazzo.

Sprinkled with enchanting woodland, where graceful deer roam freely and majestic mountains provide a breath-taking backdrop, the area is as restful as it is desirable.  Due to its exclusivity and private, protected nature, luxury rentals in La Zagaleta are naturally scarce. But what is a Swish holiday experience like in this prestigious, gated community ? And, why exactly does the area hold such an appeal?

About La Zagaleta

Spanning over 2,200 hectares (5,425 acres) of breath-taking countryside, this extraordinary estate boasts approximately 230 meticulously designed properties, ensuring the utmost exclusivity for its residents. With two private golf courses, a clubhouse, equestrian facilities, tennis courts, a helipad, a swimming pool, and 24-hour security, this gated community provides a sanctuary for its residents, while the nearby town of Benahavís offers additional services. The vibrant attractions of Marbella and Puerto Banús are just a short drive away.

Access to La Zagaleta is restricted to residents and their invited guests, adding to the serenity and seclusion of this extraordinary retreat. For this reason, a luxury vacation in La Zagaleta could not be more apt for those seeking a luxurious hideaway.

Guests who choose to stay in the area experience the harmonious blend of nature and luxury, with stunning properties set on vast plots with sea views.  It’s only a short drive from the coast but enjoys its own enclosed space.
