Nueva Andalucia is a well thought out and attractive area just west of Marbella where, as its name suggests, the villas and apartments are based on traditional Andalusian architecture and design. However, times are changing in this area and some of the most stunning contemporary luxurious villas ever seen are springing up in this unique area of Marbella.
The bullring on the right marks the entrance to Nueva Andalucia, while the road climbs towards the mountains affording magnificent views of the coast. On a clear day, you can even see North Africa off in the distance. Sports enthusiasts can find plenty on offer here with tennis, paddle tennis and a unique gymnasium by Dorian Yates (Mr Universe). For golfers in particular, the area could not be more ideal. There are several magnificent courses within virtual putting distance, including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos and Aloha Golf. Nueva Andalucía is also fast becoming known for its international cuisine which ranges from a down home American deli to the ultimate in cordon bleu. It also boasts one of the most popular commercial centres in the area, Centro Plaza comprising quality shops, restaurants, bars and offices (our office included), as well as a supermarket, and several beauty parlours. There is also an excellent street market (“rastro”) held next to the bullring here every Saturday morning. Aside from recreational, sport and commercial facilities, Nueva Andalucía has several schools, including the international Aloha College. It is also home to one the Costa del Sol’s just two casinos, which boasts a vast gaming room as well as various other facilities.
For both residents and visitors, Nueva Andalucía is ideally situated, just a few minutes’ drive from the glitz and glamour of Marbella and Puerto Banús, yet close to the natural beauty of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and San Pedro Alacantara, a refreshingly unspoilt pueblo with an appeal all of its own.
