La Quinta – where Marbella meets open country

Situated within the municipal boundaries of Benahavis, at the point where the leafy residential ambience of Nueva Andalucia meets open nature and the country club environment of El Madroñal, La Quinta offers what many consider to be the ‘best of all worlds’.


The residential area we now know as La Quinta first began to take shape in the 1980s but became firmly established as a luxury residential area with a country club feel in the subsequent years. The luxury La Quinta apartments, townhouses and villas developed around the golf club, which opened in 1989 to the design of Manuel Piñero and Antonio Garrido.

The course, since expanded to 27 holes, offers a gentle playing experience surrounded by magnificent natural scenery, but above all, it forms the glorious focal point for many of the frontline golf properties in La Quinta. In truth, the course shares this honour with the panoramic sea views and country vistas to be enjoyed in La Quinta.

Just as the elegant clubhouse, restaurant, bar, pro shop, driving range and academy of the La Quinta Golf & Country Club provide a social hub for local residents, so the Westin La Quinta Golf Resort & Spa offers them the facilities of a luxurious hotel with restaurants, café, spa, children’s club and pool decks right on their doorstep.

La Quinta’s setting
La Quinta’s connects the area at the lower end of the Ronda Road, which leads to the exclusive La Zagaleta and El Madroñal country clubs, with the leafy residential streets and Golf Valley of Nueva Andalucia. As a result, it is sufficiently elevated to enjoy fantastic views across the coastal area, the Mediterranean Sea and also the surrounding mountains and nature.

The setting between suburban zones and open country also endows La Quinta with a special ambience that makes it feel like a residential part of Marbella that touches upon the rustic land surrounding it. Though you can enjoy countryside walks you can also be on the beach or in Marbella within less than ten minutes. Add a distinguished country club feel and it becomes clear why property in La Quinta is so sought after.

La Quinta properties
The community is home to a good collection of luxury apartments and spacious townhouses, but above all it is the villas at La Quinta that form the dominant property type. They are typically medium to large, with an excellent choice of locations, orientations, configurations and architectural styles that range from traditional and rustic to modern.
