Monte Mayor: Monte Mayor lies in a valley nature reserve surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and rich flora and fauna, just 20km from Marbella. Building volume has been kept deliberately low to safeguard the valley’s peace and tranquility. Rare Idyllic isolation often comes at the expense of being far from so-called civilization. Surprisingly this sheltered and peaceful valley, punctuated by the scent of pine groves, lies less than ten minutes' drive from the main coastal road and the beach and the traditional Andalusian villages of Cancelada and Benahavís border either side of this Exclusive estate.

Jeep & Dolphin Eco-Tours for the whole family. CABLE SKI MARBELLA- Water Cable Ski System & Pool. marbella old town and beautiful cobbled streets.

Shopping : I don't know where to start. TRADITIONAL SPANISH MARKETS. There are various markets held in the area on a daily basis, the closest is Cancelada 10 minutes for fresh produce. Larger markets are held in Marbella on a saturday and Estepona on a sunday. The larger markets sell everything from cheap sunglasses to bio produce, fresh vegetables, handbags, clothing, traditional ceramics and Morrocan homeware.
MARBELLA AND OLD TOWN. Fantastic traditional shops, boutiques, spanish brands and tourist shops.
PUERTO BANUS. Much the same as Marbella but with a slant on high end international brands around the port area. EL Corte Ingles is also in Puerto Banus, they have a fantastic deli for an amazing selection of traditional spanish and international delicacies !

Experience the beauty and tranquility of Monte Mayor, and the unique pueblo of La Heredia which sits within a protected reserve but provides easy access to the variety that the region offers whilst enjoying the best all year round climate in Europe. Monte Mayor is within the Benahavis area lying midway between Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona. From the coast road Monte Mayor is reached in approx 10 mins via our closest village of Cancelada, passing Ritz Carlton Villa Padierna Hotel and Marbella Club before reaching the gates at Monte Mayor. Benahavis village known as the gastronomic corner, famed for its village restaurants is reached in 15 minutes. It is possible to walk from the property into the woods behind and to enjoy the wild beauty and tranquility, however tradition, glitz, culture, fantastic shopping in Marbella and Puerto Banus, Pueblo Blancos the white villages of Andalusia, sporting activities, golf,spa, beach clubs, water sports and safari park are all found close by.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

Why the Owner Chose Benahavis:
Beautiful property, fantastic and unique location due to the stunning natural surroundings that only a handful of urbanisations on the coast can boast. The area is also renowned for its rare and dependable microclimate, ensuring glorious outdoor living for most of the year. A view that never becomes boring, sometimes you can hear the bells on the goats moving along the mountain but they are often difficult to locate. The environment is tranquil yet very close to civilization, glitz or culture and there is a huge variety of things to do for all ages. The architecturally interesting pastel coloured houses interspersed around cobbled roads and flower filled terraces within La Heredia are all different and pretty to look at.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can enjoy the best of both worlds in a hidden valley, a flavor of andalucia surrounded by nature yet which is not isolated and close enough to the coast. There are fabulous walks within and around Monte Mayor that can be enjoyed year round, you can walk to benahavis or just below to a natural waterfall. It is the perfect location and in a world of its own.
