La Zagaleta is one of the most luxurious and safe urbanizations in Europe, and it is located in the municipality of Benahavis, in the province of Malaga. The concept by which we now know this urbanization was born in the early 90's, and since then it is a reference throughout Europe.
Unlike other luxurious urbanizations that we have in Spain, and even in Europe, La Zagaleta does not appear on Google Maps, something that corroborates the level of security and discretion in the area.
The Zagaleta has a profile of neighbor, who are usually entrepreneurs, most of the come from countries of northern Europe, and they are around 55 years. They are influential people, famous and with high purchasing power, who come to Spain and seek discretion and not to have public exposure.
The houses that we find in La Zagaleta are single-family villas, each with its style and characteristics. Of course, they all have a common denominator and it is luxury. The villas in Benahavís are true architectural works of art, authentic wonders with surfaces of 3,000 - 10,000 square meters and which have prices between 5 and more than 20 million euros.
The villas must meet some requirements such as not to exceed two floors in height (although they can have huge basements with garages with capacity up to 5 cars), have no tennis court and have Arabian tile roofing.
In addition, they all have well-kept gardens and are surrounded by idyllic natural environment. To this we must add some services such as golf courses, a lake, private helipad and an equestrian club, among other things.
To give us an idea, the community fee paid in this urbanization is around 5,000 euros per year and the annual maintenance fee is usually about 70,000 € per year. Currently, there are just over 200 villas in La Zagaleta.
One of the main attractions of this urbanization, in addition to its mansions and dream environment, is that it has a great security service and it has the discretion of all the workers of La Zagaleta. This makes many of the great European entrepreneurs and owners of great fortunes choose this place as a place of residence or holiday.
La Zalagueta is an exclusive urbanization of the Costa del Sol to which only the most privileged have access.
