At Marqués de Atalaya, you're not only acquiring a luxurious new home, but an exclusive and privileged lifestyle, too.As the security guard checked us through the gates, the first thing that struck us – apart from the breathtaking views of Marbella’s landmark La Concha mountain and over the sea to the rugged silhouette of the Rock of Gibraltar – was that this is one superbly maintained residential estate where the community obviously runs on well-oiled wheels.

Appealingly designed as a Mediterranean village – with palm and olive groves, illuminated walkways, water features and a profusion of exotic plants and flowers at every turn, when you purchase one of the remaining, key-ready, spacious and beautifully-appointed two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses at Marqués de Atalaya, you’re not only acquiring a luxurious new home, but an exclusive and privileged lifestyle, too. Without even setting foot beyond the development there’s an impressive range of leisure and recreational amenities to enjoy, including two spectacular outdoor swimming pools surrounded by vast sunbathing decks, a large heated indoor pool – complete with sauna, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath – as well as a gym and tennis court.

Quality specifications include marble floors, double-glazing, air-conditioning and much more besides.

Onsite amenities include a heated indoor pool - complete with sauna, jacuzzi and Turkish bath - plus a gym and tennis court.

With its frontline golf location adjoining Atalaya Golf & Country Club – where residents also benefit from discounted green fees – players can simply collect their buggy from the underground car park and drive straight onto the course. If you can bear to tear yourself away from your private paradise, there are plenty more first-class golf clubs nearby to choose from too, while it’s only a 10-minute drive to Puerto Banús. The seaside town of San Pedro is a mere 2km away and Benahavís – one of the Costa del Sol’s most picturesque of Pueblos Blancos and also renowned as a gastronomic village – is just 5km inland.

It was time to visit the show home, a stunning three-bedroom duplex penthouse with three bathrooms – two of which are en suite – a large living room boasting a marble fireplace, huge terrace, plus ample Siematic kitchen with Siemens appliances and access to a covered terrace. A magnificent curved marble staircase leads to the upper floor master suite which has a further terrace with pre-installation for a hot tub. Other quality specifications include marble floors, underfloor bathroom heating, double-glazing and hot and cold air-conditioning. All the properties are served by lift and also include underground parking and storeroom.
