La Resina and Selwo are among the newest, up and coming residential areas on the New Golden Mile, a popular stretch of coastline between Guadalmina (Marbella) and Estepona. Approximately eight kilometres from the centre of Estepona, these urbanisations have much to offer second homeowners and holidaymakers, as well as families looking for a permanent home. Selwo was the first of the two areas to be developed and divides into two distinct areas. Higher up, luxury detached villas in private plots command magnificent panoramic views of mountains and the Mediterranean. Nestled below are the gated complexes of spacious apartments and townhouses, with community landscaped gardens and pool areas, underground garages and storerooms. The area is well known for its exciting wildlife safari park, Selwo Aventura, which covers a vast expanse of land one kilometre inland from the main coast road. Once inside you can hop on a jeep to visit the different birds and animals, then walk back across authentic swing bridges taking in extraordinary views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and, on a clear day, the real Africa! For the ultimate safari experience, stay a night in one of their African lodges and hear the roar of the wildlife as the sun sets over the landscape. Just to the east, a manned gate lodge indicates the entrance to La Resina, a private urbanisation covering 34 hectares of land. Its frontline golf, detached villas have each been constructed in such a way to complement each other, while retaining their own style and individuality. Behind these villas, gated apartment complexes enjoy stunning views of the 9-hole golf course and the Mediterranean. Despite their contemporary architecture, the vanilla facades blend seamlessly to complement the local landscape. Inside, the spacious two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses have been finished to a very high standard with quality bathrooms (Travertine marble) and fully fitted light and airy modern kitchens. Underfloor heating, marble floors, and air conditioning come as standard and each property has allocated underground parking and storeroom.
La Resina Golf & Country Club
The terraces have been positioned to maximise the stunning views of countryside, mountains, golf and sea, and provide plenty of space for relaxing and dining al fresco. Residents can also wander around the landscaped, tropical gardens and enjoy a dip in one of the two large swimming pools, again with breathtaking views of the local area. La Resina also boasts a clubhouse, gym, paddle and tennis courts, private community gardens, lakes, jogging tracks and children’s playgrounds. Selwo and La Resina, at just a few minutes drive from the beach, have much to offer those looking for their own peaceful oasis within easy striking distance of the bustling Costa del Sol. Laguna Village, a popular beachside commercial zone with designer shops, Puro Beach club and selection of quality restaurants, is only five minutes away. Equally, you can reach the centre of Estepona, its port, shops, restaurants, beach bars and supermarkets within ten minutes. http://www.altavistaproperty.com/Apartment-Selwo%20-%20New%20Golden%20Mile-DEV28 http://www.selwo.es/ http://www.laguna-village.com/ http://www.purobeach.com/en/purobeach-marbella-concept-facts.html
