Marbella: La Zagaleta - Unique Plots Coming to Market Through Foreclosure

Updated: Apr 13

La Zagaleta in Benahavis - Marbella is renowned as one of Europe's most exclusive and safest 24/7 guarded residential areas, covering 900 hectares of valleys, wooded hills, and pristine Andalusian nature. Its history is equally captivating. It began as a regal hunting estate in the Serranía de Ronda mountains and attracted Spanish royalty and heads of state. However, a significant change occurred in the late 1960s.

Initially owned by French multi-millionaire Thierry Roussel, husband of Christina Onassis, the land was later purchased by Adnan Khashoggi and renamed La Baraka. In 1991, a group of investors led by Enrique Perez Flores acquired the property, renaming it La Zagaleta. This marked the beginning of its transformation into a five-star deluxe gated resort community featuring luxurious villas set amidst expansive private plots, all surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of this 900-hectare country club.

La Zagaleta now boasts two private golf courses, a lake, an equestrian centre, a heliport, and a member's clubhouse, formerly Khashoggi's house. With over 200 villas ranging from 3,000 m² to 10,000 m² and prices between 2 and 34 million euros, La Zagaleta epitomizes luxury living in a stunning natural setting. A financial institution mandates Whisper Auctions to sell two plots through private sales due to foreclosure. Proof of funds is required for interested buyers.
