Colourful, nostalgic and serene, La Heredia is one of the few places on the Coast where you enjoy an old-fashioned, peaceful, Andalusian village-style way of life, yet are only minutes away from the chic eateries, trendy bars and designer boutiques of glitzy Puerto Banús and historic Marbella.
La Heredia’s award-winning luxury homes, petite fountained squares and unique village atmosphere attract those keen to escape the throngs of the traditional holiday resorts, and its location between the famous La Zagaleta enclave (one of the most exclusive and wealthiest addresses in the world) and internationally renowned Puerto Banús enhances its already prestigious reputation as a retreat for the discerning. In other words, a home in La Heredia positions you in one of the most exclusive areas of Marbella.
But while La Heredia’s elite properties, endearing rustic charm and advantageous location provide all the trappings of an idyllic lifestyle, many of its properties won’t necessarily break the bank.
Wooden beams, vaulted ceilings, terracotta tiling, colourful scented blooms, narrow streets, cute patios, remarkable views… they’re all part and parcel of life in La Heredia. Picture a small village in the rolling rural hills where the locals enjoy nothing more than reading the paper over a freshly brewed pot of coffee, a chat in the afternoon with a good bottle of wine, and an al fresco supper to the soundtrack of chirping cicadas and the aromas of good food mixed with the perfume of Jasmine, Bougainvillea and Orange Blossom. That’s life in La Heredia.
The village has an on-site bakery, butcher, bar and restaurant, meaning you don’t even have to leave home to enjoy that traditional continental-European lifestyle. The two communal pools are perfect for cooling down in on a long, hot day, and just a short drive down the road there are supermarkets, banks, restaurants and all the other amenities you could possibly need. The spectacular and romantic mountain town of Ronda is less than an hour’s drive, while miles of sandy beaches and pristine golf courses are just a few minutes away.
Life in La Heredia moves at a slower, more relaxed pace than other areas of the Coast and a luxury home here will meet all of your requirements for enjoying a chic and privileged life in the Spanish sun.
