Zagaleta was founded in 1991 and is located in the Benahavis hills at approximately 400 meters above sea level and surrounded by impressive views of the Mediterranean Sea, the Gibraltar Strait and the Ronda Mountains. A special micro-climate with mild temperatures in winter, a distinct natural backdrop, and an unbeatable sense of exclusivity, has made Zagaleta the perfect choice for creating your dream home.
The concept, as envisioned by the creators of this project, represented an exceptional challenge. Foremost, the founders were aiming to respect the environment in a way that could enable luxury homes to reside in complete harmony with nature. While more than 3,000 properties could have been erected, only 420 will be constructed when the project is complete. This means that residential areas will comprise only 31.87% of the whole estate a fact that will ease a vast area of unspoilt beauty. The model, with very low density, is completely innovative in the sector. The residential practices will not interfere with the sports activities, opposed to most projects that have been developed in our region.
The estate covers almost 900 hectares of land – totally secure – with two only access gates and a modern and effective 24-hour security service ensuring the privacy and safety of our residents. Its proximity to the international airports of Malaga and Gibraltar, with direct flights to the main European destinations, and its proximity to Andalusia’s historic cities like Seville or Granada, make it a particularly convenient location.
La Zagaleta has grown even more attractive thanks to its facilities, the equestrian Club, two 18-hole golf courses with their respective Clubhouses, permanent Heli service and a renowned around-the-clock services company, all for the exclusive use of members and their guests.
