Benahavis is a traditional Spanish mountain village and district between Marbella, Estepona and Ronda, 7km from the Costa Del Sol and less than one hour drive from Malaga airport. Nestled in the Serranía de Ronda mountains, it overlooks Guadalmina Golf Course, surrounded by an unspoiled landscape of lush forestry, picturesque lakes and the rivers of Guadalmina, Guadaiza and Guadalmansa. Renowned for its authentic Spanish gastronomy, Benahavis is often referred to as 'dining room of the Costa del Sol', with the highest concentration of restaurants in the region.
Stay in one of our villas or apartments in Benahavis and experience the charms of this typical Andalucian village. From its winding streets to its rustic whitewashed houses and village centre with traditional Spanish restaurants, Benahavis is the ideal destination for a relaxing, low-key holiday in the Mediterranean countryside.
Cultural points of interest include the 11th century Moorish Montemayor Castle, private property of the Duke of Fríason, at the top of the Sierra Calderona mountain range. A hike or bike to the peak provides stunning panoramic views of the Costa del Sol’s coastline and Guadalmina river. Torre Leonera Park to the south of the village has a dedicated area for children, with ruins of an ancient medieval tower. After a morning of sightseeing, unwind and watch the sun set on one of the many Blue Flag beaches of the Golden Mile, just a 4-minute's drive away and a 20-minute drive from the popular resort of Puerto Banus.
With plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, try your hand at canoeing at Guadalmina river, explore the beautiful gorges, waterfalls and plunge pools, with their crystal-clear waters and local wildlife, or practice your swing at one of the nine golf courses.
