Benahavis – Property for Sale

Benahavis is paradise for food lovers. It has the highest concentration of top dining restaurants in the province of Malaga. Visitors from everywhere flock to this quaint little village, nestled in the mountains, simply to enjoy a delicious meal surrounded by spectacular views of nature. Over the years Benahavis has become one of the favoured areas for expats choosing to live in Spain permanently.

This beautiful, white washed village has also got one of the highest concentrations of foreigners living there on a permanent basis. The town has got a perfect mix of everything, from the traditional Andalusian style white washed village and cobblestones to spectacular views of the Sierras and the wonderful sound of rivers and cascades nearby, Benahavis’ charm is irresistible. And it is just a short 15 minute drive to the Mediterranean seashore.

Its location, a mere 7 kilometres inland and 500 metres above sea level offers a splendid drive from the coast to the village. As you make your way up to the village, along the Rio Guadalmina gorge, you start to experience nature’s beauty, emphasized by the soothing sounds of the river gorge pouring down towards the sea and the spectacular concert from a wide variety of tropical birds chirping away in this oasis. It is indeed a beautiful experience to get to the village.

Its Moorish heritage is emphasised by the existence of nearby ruins of the 11th Century castle of Montemayor. The castle was named Montemayor which means “highest hill” as it is perched up the top of the highest point in the area. Those interested in a little steep exercise up the hills, can visit the castle and enjoy the most spectacular view of the entire Mediterranean coastline of the Costa del Sol.
