ITS proximity to both Malaga and Gibraltar airports - only 45 minutes by car from each - makes the whole area easily accessible.
“It is an ideal location for those interested in a variety of activities such as golf, horse-riding, trekking, bird-watching, sightseeing etc coupled with the feeling of a typical Spanish town, very well looked-after, with a very welcoming and helpful community,” said Scott Marshall, CEO of PropertieSpain.
In addition to that, the village makes a perfect base for all sorts of glamorous activities, whether it is shopping in Puerto Banus, fine-dining in Marbella, playing golf in any of the exclusive resorts nearby or relaxing in the many luxury hotels scattered all over the region.
“Everything is on your doorstep,” said Scott, a Benahavis man himself, who was born and bred in the village after his parents moved from the UK more than 50 years ago, paving the way for the expat community.
The village has been developed in recent years and is considered a gastronomic heaven. There are more than 25 restaurants and tapas bars in a village of 2,500 inhabitants.
Benahavis itself is by repute the richest per capita village in Europe. Some of the luxury urbanisations that can be found in Benahavis are La Zagaleta, Los Arqueros, La Alqueria, La Quinta and Benahavis Hills, a paradise for golf-lovers.
“It’s a real gem of a place. People make you feel very welcome,” added Scott.
Such charms have not gone unnoticed for PropertieSpain, the Real Estate specialists in Benahavis and the whole municipality. With an office in the centre of the town, they provide a unique service based on local knowledge and experience.
Scott said: “I worked in an English estate agent for nine years before the recession hit Spain. However, my experience and the many contacts I have, made me believe in the idea of starting my own agency.
“We are confident that we can provide help and support when buying or selling a property in this area. And the reason is that all our staff, with more than 20 years experience, know the area very well, including me.
“We do not want to be the biggest estate agent, but our focus is on treating our customers very well, in a very professional manner and to offer them the expertise that we have gained over the years.
Scott added: “We are very proud of the direction the company has headed since its opening and are happy to have been of help to many clients, not only from the UK and Ireland, but also from Belgium, Holland, Switzerland etc...
PropertieSpain has on offer numerous types of properties to suit all clients, from very traditional to very luxurious.
“There are many different types of scenarios on offer, from apartments to villas, townhouses, penthouses, plots for designing and building your own villa etc as well as commercial property and bank repossessions not only in Benahavis but in the surrounding areas as well.
In addition to their experience assisting buyers and sellers, at PropertieSpain they always aim at bringing the process to the shortest possible timescale, sometimes in a matter of three to four weeks.
PropertieSpain can recommend a wide range of professionals after the sales from lawyers to decorators, based on their experience with them.
They also act as an intermediary in collaboration with other companies including property maintenance, security, interior design, furnishings, kitchen and bathrooms installation, swimming pool and gardening services, always aiming at leaving their clients in good hands.
