Benahavís is a town full of Andalusian flavour, with white and narrow streets, typically Arab, most of which flow out into sunny squares. It is a chosen place where you will be able to enjoy both Nature and luxury urbanizations, carefully integrated within its natural landscape, nested within their golf courses on the foothills of Serranía de Ronda.
Founded by the Arabs and protected by a 10th Century fortress, Benahavís is today a perfect combination between tradition and modernity. A charming town that offers endless possibilities as a first-rate tourist destination.
If there is something that differentiates the people from Málaga province is their way of living their lives. A characteristic lifestyle that revolves around the hours of sunlight that offer the over 320 days of sun per year. Living in Benahavís means to enjoy the narrow white streets and the colourful scent of their plants and flowers. It also means to enjoy luxury in all its aspects and an exceptionally good cuisine.
The gastronomy in Benahavís is almost as varied as the restaurants that fill the city. But if there is something that really defines the personality of this Málaga jewel, that is the prominence of the sea on one hand and other hand the versatility that the agricultural produce gives to the dishes This is why Benahavís is known as the dining room of Andalusia, and it is considered a gastronomic paradise by critics and visitors alike, as it features some of the best restaurants of Spain, an endless gastronomic offer of the highest quality. This is reflected by our own Catering School, “Sabor a Málaga”.
A COSMOPOLITAN AND MULTICULTURAL POPULATION
It is the right combination of modernity and tradition thanks to its extensive foreign community that live together in harmony and perfectly integrated in the social and economic life of Benahavís. These foreign residents bring to Benahavís their own essence, turning this traditional old town into a cosmopolitan and multi-cultural area. Most of them live outside the old town in some of the luxury urbanization that have grown around the town, surrounded by the many golf courses. These urbanizations are small (or big) paradises, surrounded by nature, tranquility and luxury.
