We’ve come full circle in style terms, with many now favouring a blend of modern living infused with traditional design elements. For those who do indeed enjoy charm as well as sophistication, La Heredia is an idyllic gated community in Mediterranean village form.
La Heredia is a stylish community of around 180 individually designed townhouses and apartments with all the charm of a classic Andalusian village. Unlike many residential areas, it was born of an artistic, utopian vision for living that blends beautifully into its green surroundings, and from this hillside position near the country club estates of El Madroñal and La Zagaleta, the views across the golf course of Los Arqueros down to the coastline, Gibraltar, North Africa and the sea are quite spectacular.
The village feel creates a sense of community, further enhanced by a bakery, butcher, restaurant and a cosy bar at the entrance to La Heredia. From here, peaceful cobbled streets and intimate little squares follow the contours uphill in what is one of the most timelessly fashionable developments in the greater Marbella area. It falls within the municipality of Benahavis, but for all the peace and privacy is also just ten minutes from the beaches and amenities of Marbella. Further offering 24 hour security, two communal pools (one heated), in many ways La Heredia blends the best of Andalucía and the Costa del Sol.
