Marbella’s Golden Mile is the stretch of land running from the western edge of Marbella to Puerto Banús. More accurately it’s actually 6km but it’s 6km of the most luxurious and elegant properties, estates and hotels in Marbella.
It’s also where it all began for Marbella, when European royal playboy Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg opened the Marbella Club hotel in 1954, as a getaway for his royal and celebrity friends. At one time the only place on the coast with a telephone line, with such names as Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant spotted in the queue to phone home. Fast forward to today and the Golden Mile has still retained much of its charm and beauty, although the majority of the palatial homes are well hidden from prying eyes, which is exactly what attracts discerning buyers.
One home that is not so well hidden and dominates the Golden Mile is the Mar-Mar Palace and its gardens, constructed by the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia and modelled on the American White House. The Golden mile can be divided into two parts, separated by the coast running between them. The beach side is home to the Marbella Club Hotel, the Puente Romano hotel and the majority of the mutli-million pound villas, all with expansive private gardens and unrivalled views of the sea. The mountainside of The Golden Mile is still undergoing development, with luxury developments such as Sierra Blanca and Nagüeles offering everything from luxury villas with spectacular mountain and sea views, to luxury apartments with the ultimate in modern technology and design.
