Cataleya – An Amazing Development in Prime Location

Located in the so-called “Golden Triangle” comprised of Estepona, Benahavis and Marbella, this stunning 3-bedroom apartment in Urbanization Cataleya is a seriously good buy .  Light bright and immaculate, the property is set within an attractive complex that includes a communal garden, a tempting lagoon-style swimming pool as well as the luxury of an indoor swimming pool. The features offered in phase 2 of this development have significantly boosted its popularity, making it an excellent choice for both investment or living purposes.

The area is one of the most coveted in the whole of Spain, with year-on-year increases in property values guaranteed. Benahavis is currently the most expensive location in Spain to purchase property with the highest prices per square metre, and the trend continues apace as demand outstrips supply for luxury contemporary properties.

Situated close to the beautiful road to Benahavis coming up from the coast, Cataleya is just 2 kilometres from the beach and  the upscale neighbourhood of Guadalmina, the chosen holiday destination of Spanish high society, and one of the best addresses in the country.

Cataleya looks out over El Paraiso Golf course, and is right next to the Atalaya Golf & Country Club within a short drive to a host of good golf courses including Los Flamingos, Los Arqueros and Golf El Higueral.

For aficionados of watersports, there is a lake for cable ski just a 5-minute drive away, while the river Guadalmina – parallel to the Benahavis road is known for wild  rock pool swimming. The beach and long sea front promenade of San Pedro de Alcantara, also just a few minutes’ drive away, allow for year-round swimming in the sea, paddle-boarding and jet-skiing.  The Real Padel Club Marbella, and The IO are also nearby. For a little down time and sunbathing try the sophisticated Villa Padierna beach club or the more low-key Salduna Beach – both offering excellent cuisine.

Close to both the Diana Park and Guadalmina commercial centres, Cataleya has a wide range of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and services close by, including décor establishments, gourmet and wine stores as well as beauty salons.  A little further at Cancelada, there are health spas, one at Mett hotel & Resort as well as the palatial spa at the  5-star luxury Villa Padierna Hotel, set within the Los Flamingos golf club.

Very close to Cataleya are 3 excellent schools, two private bilingual schools, Colegio Atalaya and Colegio San José, and the Isdabe local school.

Head just a few kilometres inland and you come to the authentic white village of Benahavis, renowned for its cuisine and the beautiful curvaceous mountain road to the historic town of Ronda – only 45 minutes’ drive away.

Meanwhile, the quaint town of Estepona, with its white-washed, cobble-stoned streets, and pretty, flower-strewn squares and beachside restaurants is just 20 minutes away, and the glitz and glamour of Marbella and Puerto Banús, for designer shopping, luxury yachting and international gastronomy is within a 10-minute drive from this prime property in Cataleya.
