Why to buy in Benahavís?
Because Benahavis offers the best of both worlds! And then some! It has all the quietness you need when you want it, yet it is only 15 minutes to the hustle and bustle of Puerto Banus, with Marbella and Estepona at 10-20 minutes and Malaga and Gibraltar at 45minutes.
From the village or your property in Benahavis area, the beaches are 7km away and from most of the urbanizations on its territory even less. So, whether you prefer the beach or your cozy private or communal pool, water fun is guaranteed, the mountains present incredible opportunities for trekking, mountain biking, 4x4 adventures, rock climbing, horse riding with golf courses only five minute drive from the village to name just a few.
Sports facilities are in the Guadalmina valley next to Benahavis village centre and a yearly citizens card can be obtained for 24 or 48 euros, where the last number also includes a range of cultural and social activities. With this card you can enjoy all the facilities and workshops during the year for free or as good as, this also includes Spanish lessons.
The village and surrounding areas offer plenty of welcoming bars and restaurants, so you do not need to take a car all the time, which is a rather great advantage in these times if you want an alcoholic drink.
But the definitive wow factor is provided by the local taxes which are only a fraction of the ones you would pay in other villages on the Costa del sol. This is true for the local property and car taxes and even the water supply and trash collection are a lot cheaper.
So, not only is Benahavis probably the most beautiful village around here, but the financial advantages of a property in Benahavis, compared to similar ones in other villages or cities, can run into the thousands of euros per year.
