Local Area Information

Costa Del Sol
Costa del Sol provides stunning views and easy access to this global hub of the social elite and the superyacht lifestyle. But this beautiful part of Andalucía also offers its more discerning residents a wealth of cultural gems.

Natural Park
Nature is an integral part of life in Casa Smile Marbella.

Our privileged location next to the UNESCO biosphere reserve gives you the freedom to enjoy your personal version of the outdoor lifestyle, from hiking and horse riding to simply enjoying the fabulous views.

Marbella & Puerto Banús
Marbella is internationally recognised as a premier travel destination.

Puerto Banús, known to many simply as 'the port', is home to the most opulent boats, extravagant supercars and exclusive boutiques and restaurants. It is the perfect place to relax and watch a uniquely fascinating world go by.

Discover the precious corners, hidden squares and surprising festivals of real Spain in the nearby local villages and towns.

Outdoors picnics, walking, cycling and skiing. Andalusia has several natural reserves with mountains, lakes and rivers where you can practice water sports, ski and make the best of the beautiful weather spending a family day out in the countryside, by a lake or on the beach.

Top of the list of attractions in Benahavis are its natural surroundings. Few places on the Costa del Sol enjoy such uninterrupted views of mountains, woodlands and rivers. The village itself is a succession of well-kept narrow streets and squares, flanked by Andalusian whitewashed houses.

The lovely Parque Torre Leoneras park at the south end of the village contains the ruins of a medieval tower and large lake. The Montemayor Castle, built in the 10th century, is mostly ruined but still has several sections of the walls and the Queen’s Tower intact. Views of the Costa del Sol from here are stunning.

Benahavis is renowned for its gastronomy. Known as ´La Sartén de Andalucía´ (the frying pan of Andalucía), Benahavis is home to a wide variety of restaurants serving the very best of traditional, Andalucian cooking. Many of the ingredients used in the restaurants are locally grown, and as you drive around the town you will see signs that describe it as the gastronomic corner of Andalucia. 

The Sunday market, held in the grounds of a shrine on the way to the village, is one of the most popular markets on the Costa del Sol. Its car boot sale stalls attract buyers and sellers from all over the coast and make a great Sunday morning activity.

The Guadalmina River provides great canyoning opportunities – making your way down the river through waterfalls and plunge pools ranks as one of the top adventure activities on the Costa del Sol. There’s also a lovely river walk that takes you across a spectacular bridge and along a traditional Moorish irrigation channel.
