Undoubtedly, Guadalmina Baja is one of the finest and most sought-after locations on the Costa del Sol. It is known for its low-density setting and elegant cosmopolitan ambience, and beachfront setting. Like many neighbourhoods in the Estepona and Marbella area, Guadalmina Baja is a healthy mix of Spanish, Nothern European (Scandinavian) and British residents… all sharing a passion for luxurious living.
Guadalmina Baja comprises mainly of large villas – some of the most luxurious mansions in Marbella are to be found here, built on double or triple plots. A remarkable fact is that the streets in Guadalmina Baja are numbered, rather than named. The average price per square meter = 4,500 €/m².
The western boundary runs along the Guadalmina River, which also acts as the Marbella – Estepona municipal boundary. A small bridge gives direct access over the Guadalmina river (Calle 4) to Estepona districts. The eastern boundary is the barely noticeable Arroyo del Chopo stream. The nearest towns are San Pedro de Alcántara (3 min drive), Puerto Banus (5 min drive) and Nueva Andalucia (5 min drive).
Located in the Marbella area of Spain, San Pedro de Alcántara is a small town that has gone through wide-range of remodelling work in recent times. Thanks to its increase in tourism it has become a thriving resort with a host of activities to offer you including going on a buggy safari, chartering a luxury yacht, Segway tours and many more. Couple with that, it features a new strip of top-class restaurants, hotels as well as the best beach clubs where you can relax and enjoy the sunshine.
Guadalmina is originally associated with aristocracy and Hollywood Golden Age stars. For example, ex-empress of Persia, Princess Soraya Esfandiary-Bakhtiary lived here. As did Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn, who bought a hillside villa with her spouse, film director Mel Ferrer. It’s still favoured by celebrities, business professionals, politicians (Cuban ex-president Batista). Recent residents: national heavyweights of Partido Popular, former Prime Minister Aznar, Madrid ex-mayor Ana Botella. It has never been a “vanity fair”, rather a discreet part of Marbella where famous people live or stay, like Naomi Campbell holing up in Guadalmina after spending time in Banus. Though it’s home to long-established millionaires (incl. the only descendant of Athina Hélène Onassis).
The golf course that runs down to the sea from near the Hotel Guadalmina is the South Course. The golf clubhouse is located in Guadalmina Alta. San José private junior and secondary school is located in Guadalmina Baja.
The local beach is Playa Guadalmina and next to this are the Roman Baths Las Bovedas and medieval lookout tower. The leading hotel in Guadalmina these days is the seafront Hotel Guadalmina Spa & Golf Resort. Shopping centres and boutique stores are never far away. Residents are only 5 min. drive away from the port boutique stores in Puerto Banus, or the acclaimed shopping centre El Corte Ingles.
