Also known as the dining room of the Costa del Sol, Benahavís is just a short drive away from the coast, is the perfect picture of a traditional Andalusian village. Nestled up in the mountains between Estepona and Marbella, the town’s Moorish roots are on display to all visitors, from the narrow back streets to the pueblo’s traditional plaza.
Benahavís is well known on the Costa del Sol for the exceptional food people can find there, as it houses the highest concentration of luxury restaurants in the area. The cuisine alone attracts many tourists year round, who visit solely to taste what Benahavís has to offer.
Although Benahavís has a high number of foreign residents, the pueblo has still managed to maintain its traditional Andalusian roots. Located 500 metres above sea level, small Spanish townhouses line the narrow cobbled streets.
The town overlooks the Guadalmina Golf Course and is just a short drive from the modern Mediterranean coast. The town itself is extremely green, as much of the surrounding area has been classified as environmental interest. The combination offers the stunning countryside paradise with the modern life and endless amenities just a short drive away, through the Rio Guadalmina canyon and down the hills.
