One of the most sought-after communities in the Costa del Sol area, Sierra Blanca offers spectacular views, luxury real estate, and one of the best micro-climate conditions thanks to the nearby mountains. This means that you overlook the coast, the city, and the nearby mountain range in one of the most incredible locations in the region.
Part of the fabulous city of Marbella, Sierra Blanca is located just to the north of the AP7 toll highway and The Golden Mile. While the surroundings make you feel like being in a small town, its convenient location makes community to the heart of Marbella a breeze.
What is Sierra Blanca?
Sierra Blanca is an exclusive estate that is spread across over 25 hectares. Taking its name from the nearby mountain ranges, this community is most noted for its expensive villas that range from €2 million to €10 million in price. However, there are also luxurious townhouses and apartments that dot the area as well.
Perhaps it is not surprising that many families live in the community, which boasts one of the more celebrated schools in the region. It also helps that the combination of proximity to the sea and mountains has created a micro-climate that is pleasing for most of the year. This is because the community is not subject to wild temperature variations and stays mostly comfortable the year-round.
Privacy, fast access to all the amenities that Marbella has to offer, and the incredible view of the Mediterranean Sea make Sierra Blanca the place for the rich and powerful to live and tourists to visit. But in addition to the tremendous shopping, eating, and leisure activities, there are other perks for those who live among the splendor that is Sierra Blanca.
