Sierra Blanca is a highly sought after area for luxury property in Marbella. Together with some other fine urbanisations, it is often referred to as the mountainside or inland area of the Golden Mile. The term ´´Golden Mile´´ traditionally referring to the coastal area between Marbella and Puerto Banus.
As the city of Marbella has evolved over the years, several suburbs have taken on their own special gem status, lifting up and improving the entire Greater Marbella Area. Sierra Blanca, often dubbed the Beverly Hills of Marbella for a reason, is such an attractive, fine urbanisation. But what makes it so special?
Sierra Blanca as a suburb takes its name from the eponymous mountain range just north of Marbella, as it lies at the foothills of the Sierra Blanca Mountain Range, famous for its iconic La Concha mountain peak. The proximity of the mountain peaks give the urbanisation its very own microclimate, offering shelter from strong winds whilst tempering the summer heat.
With its elevated location at 300 meters above sea level, and only being 2 km away from the coastline, Sierra Blanca and nearly all of its luxury properties benefit from breath taking panoramic views over the valley, the Mediterranean Sea, the coastline and the surrounding mountains.
Sierra Blanca is gated and there is a security company touring and monitoring the urbanisation at all times. In addition, many developments of the urbanisation have their own 24-hour security service.
There is no through traffic, which guarantees tranquillity, privacy and abundance of fresh air.
Sierra Blanca counts amazing luxury mansions and villas as well as prime apartment complexes, in diverse types of architecture, all set in elegant gardens and exclusive country clubs with tropical plants and large pools. As the supply of building plots is nearly exhausted, and given all the other attributes described below, re-sales properties are always in strong demand.

The famous La Cañada shopping centre, one of the largest on the Costa del Sol, is just down the road, as are many sports and high-end private medical facilities.
The Golf Valley in Nueva Andalucía, a true golfer´s paradise which counts no less than 7 prime golf courses, is a mere 10 minute-drive away.
Sierra Blanca has very easy A7 motorway access, which opens up endless possibilities to make day trips to anywhere in Andalucía, drive to other resorts and golf clubs, or reach the airport in no time.
Last but not least, Sierra Blanca is at the doorstep to some stunning countryside and natural beauty, with Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park only a short drive further north.
