There are two great developments in the Marbella area with the name Monte Paraiso – one on the Golden Mile and one in the exclusive Sierra Blanca region. Both offer luxury properties and stunning facilities within secure developments. In this post, we are going to introduce you to both developments and we explain why we love them and think you will too.

Monte Paraiso Golden Mile

This development is just above one of the most recognisable features of the Golden Mile, the King Abdul Aziz Mosque and opposite the Puente Romano Hotel. This is a great location, as it is equidistant between Marbella and Banus, within walking distance of the beach and with easy access to the road. The Puente Romano has some of the best restaurants and bars in the area around their stunning Plaza, as well as a great tennis club and spa and all of this is just a few minutes’ walk away. Despite being so central so easy to reach, it is peaceful and tranquil, with amazing mountain views.

One of the stand out features of this development is the stunning grounds and facilities. The lush tropical gardens are beautifully maintained and include four outdoor pools, a squash court, playground and a summer restaurant. As if this wasn’t enough, there is also a gym, sauna and steam room and an indoor pool too. The development is very secure, with 24 hour security, gated entry and 12 security cameras, to ensure privacy and security for the discerning owners who call Monte Paraiso Golden Mile home.

We like the way they have designed the accommodation, in low-rise residential blocks, well-spaced out around the grounds, so it never seems crowded. There are 93 apartments in total, with modern design, high quality finishes and stunning terraces. There are a number of configurations and a range of different sizes and layouts, all of which have generous living space and air conditioning.

A good example is this 3 bedroom apartment on the first floor of the Monte Paraiso Golden Mile development. It faces southeast with a stunning double aspect sitting and dining area which leads out to a large terrace. This is a spacious, bright apartment, which also has parking and a storage room.

For more space, take a look at the 4 bedroom penthouse with over 250 m2 of living space, plus a 116 m2 terrace. This is a very special property! It is a duplex penthouse with south orientation, incredible views and amazing master suite on the top floor with private terrace.

Monte Paraiso Country Club Sierra Blanca

The second stunning urbanisation in Marbella called Monte Paraiso is in the very desirable area of the Sierra Blanca. This can be found close to central Marbella, up the hill from the copper tower and El Corte Ingles. Sierra Blanca is a development of stunning villas and apartments, in a peaceful location, yet within just a few minutes’ drive of central Marbella.

Monte Paraiso Country Club is a development which includes a 9 hole golf course, a gym, restaurant, club house, sauna and steam room. The stunning gardens offer a lush hideaway in the hills and there are four communal swimming pools for residents of the 80 homes in the development.

Just over the road is a business centre and several cafes which are easy to walk to. Within a few minutes’ drive is El Corte Ingles, with its Starbucks café and Swans International primary school behind it. A little further along you have the beautiful beaches, restaurants and port of Marbella, so it is a great location to get the best of both worlds.

Built in 2003, there are a range of properties to choose from including apartments, penthouses and private villas. All the properties are finished to the highest standard, are modern and include extras such as air conditioning and under floor heating, which make them perfect for year round living.

We love the villas on this development for their size, large plot with pool and wonderful spaces to enjoy modern living. One of our favourites is this 4 bedroom south facing villa with stunning sea views. The enormous living room with fireplace and direct access to the terrace and pool is stunning. The large bright kitchen with central island and glass wall is a wonderful place to be and all the rooms are generously proportioned and light.

The apartments are also of excellent quality, as you can see from this 2 bedroom south-west facing apartment with open plan living and dining space, plus a wonderful terrace with sea and mountain views and a dedicated parking space.

Both urbanisations offer a slice of paradise in the mountains, just outside central Marbella and we can highly recommend them for people looking for peace, quiet and luxury, within easy reach of everything Marbella has to offer.
