The area consists of a mix of modern and traditional high-end villas, offers stunning views over the city and along the coast, and benefits from the best of the local microclimate due to its location on a mountainside. While the area is well serviced by both Marbella and Puerto Banús, Sierra Blanca is also home to one of the best private schools on the Costa del Sol. Follow the road down to the Golden Mile, and you are at Marbella center, Puerto Banús, the beaches, or the Marbella Club Hotel in a matter of minutes, but also nearby is a protected mountain landscape complete with footpaths and cascading streams. It is an area particularly fashionable for British, German, Scandinavian, Dutch, and Russian buyers, including celebrities such as the famous music producer Simon Cowell, who love the privacy, surroundings, views, and easy access to all Marbella's amenities. The Golf Valley of Nueva Andalucía, for example, is just five minutes away, with shopping, dining, and leisure activities also a stone's throw away.
