There are several country clubs in the Marbella area, but few that can boast the setting and amenities of Los Flamingos, which finds itself in a beautiful green valley within a kilometre of sandy beaches and with open country, sea and mountain views.
Within this grand estate, whose meandering golf course has been designed to evoke the rolling green hills of Tuscany, luxurious villas and apartment complexes are ranged around the expansive grounds and five-star deluxe amenities of the Villa Padierna Palace Hotel and Spa – one of the finest resorts of its kind in southern Spain.
The sense of arrival provides the first clue that this is a select country club, as you pass through a manned archway and then follow a palm-lined drive to the majestic hotel, which overlooks the golf course and manmade lake and beyond to the nearby Mediterranean Sea. Beside the facilities of the clubhouse, the hotel offers guests and local residents a host of luxury amenities on their doorstep, including fine dining restaurants, a panoramic terrace café, elegant lounge and bar, an award-winning health and beauty centre, and a five-star deluxe concierge service.
Luxury country club lifestyle
The lifestyle on offer at Los Flamingos is that of a modern country club, and it has the properties to match, with a good selection of private villas in a variety of styles and sizes, as well as luxurious apartment complexes ensconced within their own lush gardens. The homes tend to have even more spectacular views than the resort hotel, as they are positioned a little higher upon gentle slopes and overlook the hotel’s gardens, the golf course, the surrounding mountain scenery and the sea all the way to Gibraltar and North Africa.
A fine example of the quality of homes available in this area is this stylish modern frontline golf villa currently under construction. Flamingos 130 is a superbly tasteful architectural five-bedroom villa with excellent views over the Los Flamingos Golf Course, natural scenery, mountains and the sea, and it offers exclusive luxury, comfort and amenities in a refined country club environment.
Estepona, Benahavis, San Pedro de Alcántara, Puerto Banús and Marbella town are all within a twenty-minute radius, bringing all the coast’s best amenities and services to within easy reach of this private country domain near the sea.
