Founded in 1991, the elite community of La Zagaleta encompasses 900 hectares of wild Andalusian countryside and is recognized as one of the most luxurious urbanizations in Europe. Set in the Benahavís hills, La Zagaleta sits at 450 meters above sea level thus affording incredible views of the Mediterranean, imposing Rock of Gibraltar and North Africa beyond. A favorite with multinational heads of industry, aristocracy and other prosperous individuals, La Zagaleta delivers the high level of security and privacy demanded by this discerning audience. The estate is watched over by 24 hour patrolled security and the twin entrance gates uphold a strict by-invitation-only guest policy.
Residents’ privacy and wellbeing are safeguarded at all times as a high priority. With a flora and fauna that has remained unchanged and unspoiled for years, La Zagaleta is a designated nature reserve. Various species of bird and animal have chosen this rich environment as their home. An enforced separation of eight meters between plots ensures not only seclusion for residents but also freedom to roam for this valuable animal population.
