Sierra Blanca is highly prized for the peace, privacy and security it offers, with tranquil leafy streets free of passing traffic. This is an exclusive residential part of Marbella that is made up of luxury villas and a select number of upmarket apartment and townhouse complexes. Above all, what makes the apartments and villas for sale in Sierra Blanca so popular is the fact this location is both secluded and highly central.

Sierra Blanca, peaceful and convenient
It seems contradictory, but Sierra Blanca proves that it is possible to provide a very peaceful out-of-the-way setting that is also just minutes from the restaurants, shops and the services of Marbella town. The marina, designer outlets, department stores and nightlife of Puerto Banús are similarly just five minutes away, with the La Cañada shopping mall, beaches and golf clubs also available within the same radius.

This is thanks to Sierra Blanca’s position at the base of Marbella’s famous La Concha Mountain. Though geographically close to the town centre and the circular road that skirts it, this spot enjoys sufficient elevation to be quite literally raised above that which it surveys. Indeed, the views of Marbella, Puerto Banús and the coastline all the way to Gibraltar and North Africa are among the best in the region. The gentle but effective elevation also creates the sensation that the villas and apartments in Sierra Blanca are further removed from the town than they really are – making it possible to be on the circular road in two minutes and in the town centre within five minutes.

This is in spite of the fact that – other than the commanding views – you could forget Marbella was there with the lack of noise and traffic enjoyed by residents in Sierra Blanca. Moreover, the fact that it backs on to protected natural land with wonderful hiking and walking trails adds further to an almost country feel, yet it never comes at the expense of proximity to a wide range of services and amenities.

Swans International School
The closest of these is Swans International School, a renowned Marbella college first founded in 1971 that has grown to become a state-of-the-art institution offering an internationally recognised primary and secondary curriculum for children of many different nationalities. Set amid the beautiful umbrella pines for which Sierra Blanca is so well known, the facilities are second to none, with several generations having gone on to universities and careers across Spain, Europe and other parts of the world. 

Having this great facility right on their doorstep means owners of the apartments and villas in Sierra Blanca don’t even have to leave their leafy enclave to get the kids to school.
