Golden Mile gems – La Virginia

Marbella has many luxurious and noteworthy residential areas, but few with the unique charm and community sense of La Virginia, which was conceived as a special labour of love and has the look and feel of an idealised Mediterranean village.

Though a part of the Golden Mile and as such situated about a kilometre from its beaches, La Virginia is in many ways a very different part of Marbella’s top address, distinct from its frontline beach mansions and penthouses, as well as from the wooded villa suburbs that cover the gentle slopes on the north-side of the palm-lined boulevard.

Created as an ideal place in which to form an albeit exclusive community, at the time largely made up of artists, architects and people of a romantic inclination, La Virginia has stood the test of time. Its elegant Mediterranean design – which in reality is an idealised form of an Andalusian village – consists of apartments, townhouses and villas in a great variety of sized, configurations and styles set upon charming little squares and pathways.

Cars access the periphery of the urbanisation, leaving the main living areas to be peaceful, pedestrian and safe for children and older residents alike. La Virginia is an oasis of peace, privacy and refined charm at the heart of the Golden Mile, no more than a few minutes removed from Marbella town and Puerto Banús, yet enveloped in greenery and forming a true community.

Homes here don’t come on the market very often and are snapped up when they do, as a result of which property values are steadily strong and don’t experience sudden peaks and troughs. The enduring appeal of this evergreen is also in part due to such facilities as a quality restaurant and classy bar, both popular meeting points, which along with a delightful little chapel, mature gardens, well-kept public areas and such details as typical Andalusian fountains complete the ingredients of a uniquely desirable residential part of the Golden Mile.
