Monte Mayor, Benahavis, Marbella


A 11th century ruined Moorish castle sits on top of the highest mountain in the area that provide sensational views of the coast and Mediterranean.

Monte Mayor is like a hidden secret or undiscovered corner of southern Spain. It’s like being in the remote mountains, very quiet and peaceful, surrounded by pine trees and forests, when actually you are a few minutes from the coast and cosmopolitan city of Marbella.

We understand a Russian businessman has bought the golf course that was allowed to run down and is in the process of renewing and renovating it maybe to include not only a first class course but also a luxury clubhouse and restaurant, an equestrian centre, spa, and tennis club. When it’s finished this will be reflected in the an uplift of prices in the area.
