Marbella’s famous Golden Mile is regarded as the top address within one of Europe’s most exclusive resort destinations, but why exactly does it enjoy such an esteemed reputation?
waThe Golden Mile is the approximately 6.5-kilometre long palm-fringed boulevard that links Marbella town and Puerto Banús. Besides being stylish in its layout, it also exudes an air of luxury and refinement that dates back to this being the very spot where Marbella as an internationally renowned resort town was born.
It was here that the Spanish-German aristocrat Alfonso von Hohenlohe – famous for being the person who put Marbella on the international map – first established the Marbella Club Hotel. Later joined by its sibling, the Puente Romano, this most refined of resort hotels was the place where the glamour of Marbella was born and international royalty, celebrity and business tycoons rubbed shoulders along the Mediterranean shores of what was once a little fishing village.
Today, the Golden Mile is lined with luxurious beachside and hillside mansions, exclusive penthouse complexes and beach clubs, as well as fine dining establishments that continue to attract an international elite. To own a property here is to have the best address in Marbella, so it remains the ultimate real estate to desire in this area.
