Property for Sale Costa del Sol.
Located in the autonomous community of Andalusia, the Costa del Sol is arguably the most famous destination in Spain amongst international travellers and property buyers alike. Bordering Gibraltar and separated from Morrocco by the Alboran Sea, this area is known for its wonderful weather – earning its nickname as the ‘coast of the sun’ or ‘sunshine coast’.
This unofficial section of southern coast runs the length of the Malaga province, from the border of Gibraltar in the west to the border of the Granada province in the east, with Marbella providing the most sought-after postcodes along the 7km or so known as the ‘Golden Mile’.
Boasting the best climate on the European mainland, bountiful natural beauty, and healthy Mediterranean lifestyles, it is no surprise that property for sale in Costa del Sol is in high demand. From traditional whitewashed mountain towns to modern beachside urbanisations, there is something for every type of property buyer interested in real estate in Costa del Sol.

Frequently Asked Questions.
Whether you have a penthouse with a panoramic view in mind or would prefer a villa with its own private pool, there is a suitable luxury property waiting for you on the Costa del Sol. Designs vary from rustic Spanish style to modern architectural marvels, but all come with the comforts and conveniences you would expect from a high-end apartment or villa in such a prime spot.
Whichever property captures your interest, it is sure to have an impressive exterior and spacious interiors – fitted with stunning facilities almost as magnificent as the landscape they overlook. Depending on the location and orientation, your property could enjoy the scenic sight of the ocean and coastline to the south or the mountains and wooded hills to the north.
Many of our Costa del Sol properties are part of luxury complexes, set within secure gated communities with access to a selection of private and communal amenities, from terraces and solariums to gardens and gyms. Property prices vary according to size and proximity to the beach, but we are sure to have a listing that suits you at Altavista Property.
If you are wondering what makes real estate in Costa del Sol so appealing, there are countless benefits to visiting and living in this region. One of the biggest attractions for investors and homebuyers is the area’s 325 days of sunshine a year and average temperatures of 17–31°C.
With the blue Mediterranean Sea lapping at miles of golden sandy shore, transitioning to tree-covered hills rolling toward grandiose mountains, the Costa del Sol has some of the most picturesque landscapes to be found anywhere – not just in Spain or Europe, but the whole world.
The infrastructure has also developed significantly over the last several decades, earning the Costa del Sol a reputation for unrivalled beaches, golf courses, and marinas. Retail, gastronomy, and leisure facilities – especially outdoor activities – also offer abundant options for entertainment.
People come from across the globe to experience this glorious setting for themselves, and many are inspired to purchase a piece of it as a holiday home, if not to move here entirely. With Malaga–Costa del Sol Airport nearby, and most coastal areas linked by the A-7 and AP-7 roads, it is easier than ever to come and go as you please to enjoy your Costa del Sol property.
Every property search in Costa del Sol tends to start in the same place – Marbella, the shiniest jewel in the crown of the Golden Mile. Luxury properties in Marbella are in such high demand that prices are also driven to the highest in the area – but it is often easier to find equally upscale properties for less in other locations surrounding central Marbella.
Those looking for property on the Costa del Sol tend to expand the perimeters of their search to cover properties from Fuengirola and Torremolinos near Malaga down to Estepona and even Sotogrande approaching the Gibraltar border.
While the central region is most developed, more and more urbanisations are growing to the east and west to help meet the demand for Costa del Sol real estate. Luxury urbanisations in Marbella East include Elviria, Riviera del Sol, La Cala de Mijas, El Faro, and Benalmadena, with prices reflecting the popularity of this stretch of coastline amongst tourists.
Meanwhile, beyond Puerto Banus and Nueva Andalucia, Marbella West is comparably quieter. That said, property in Estepona is developing an increasing buzz, with this part of the coast christened the ‘New Golden Mile’. Further inland, you can also find luxury developments populated by social elites, such as the gated community La Zagaleta in Benahavis.
One thing these places have in common is that they have a range of property sizes and styles to choose from. Whether you prefer beachside, mountainside, or frontline golf, an independent villa or an apartment complex, we have a wide selection of villas and apartments for sale in Costa del Sol.
For many years, the Costa del Sol has been the destination of choice for foreigners looking for second homes in the sunshine, and this does not appear to be changing any time soon. With English spoken widely and numerous expat communities, international buyers from around the world continue to search for villas for sale in Costa del Sol as their ideal property. Whether you intend to live in your Costa del Sol apartment or villa, or use it to grow your rental portfolio and make a return on your investment, the advantages of owning property here include:
- Stunning scenery and a high quality of life with relatively low cost of living
- Thriving tourism sector with plenty of visitors, especially in the summer
- Commercial opportunities in retail, construction, agriculture, and more
- Close to major cities and well-connected by road, air, sea, and public transport
