Climb just 7 kilometres away from the Costa, and relax in a more tranquil mountain setting. We’re exploring Benahavís, a whitewashed village tucked between Estepona and Ronda. Renowned for fabulous food and more, we discover why a property in Benahavís makes an excellent investment.
Benahavís – the best of both worlds
Perhaps you’re considering a retirement move, or you want a second home where you can relax in a peaceful location.. Benahavís is that location. Typical of a Spanish whitewashed village, and all the charm that goes with it, but just a short trip to the nightlife, shopping, and beach-life of the Costa del Sol. The best of both worlds.
Drive up from the coast, via the Río Gualalmina gorge, and escape into the hills. What will you discover? The ruins of a Moorish castle atop Montemayor, the highest mountain in the area. The remains of an Arab wall surround the Town Hall – ensuring that heritage and history are the first impressions of Benahavís. White houses, tumbling Geranium and Bougainvillea, and trickling fountains set the scene, as you navigate the narrow and winding, picturesque streets on foot.
There are many reasons visitors come to Benahavís, but there is one in particular of note. This small village has a big reputation, and it’s all about the food. The Mediterranean diet is taken to new heights here in the mountains, and you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to award-winning dinners, should you choose to invest in a property here. One thing is guaranteed, you’ll never get bored of eating out, there are so many places to choose from. A well stocked larder between the sea and the mountains. Local specialities include lamb, Rabo de Toro, and naturally, seafood dishes, such as this seared scallop with asparagus.
Hole in one
Like a round of golf? Then pack the plus fours, or at least your best Perry Ellis golf gear and get ready to lower your handicap. There are around half a dozen courses to choose from in the immediate area, and almost 40 courses within a short driving distance. If you’re a golf widow, on the other hand, then utilise all that lovely free time well, and pay a trip to the Benahavís Spa. Synonymous with serenity, you can be pampered and rejuvenated, whilst he gets stuck in the bunker. Par for the course, no?
