In the heart of the Costa Del Sol

Finca Buenaventura is located on the Costa del Sol, the coastline of Malaga. One of the main attractions of the area is its wonderful climate, with more than 320 sunny days each year. It is situated in the charming village of Cancelada and just a short walk away, guests will find local restaurants including El Carnicero, well-known in the area for its steaks, and a number of traditional Spanish bars and cafes.


There are also 12 golf courses within 15 km of the property, which overlooks the most revered golf course on the Costa del Sol- Los Flamingos. Our staff are able to arrange golfing trips for our guests, and can provide concessionary rates due to our special relationship with local courses.


There are a number of other popular destinations surrounding the Finca, and guests will certainly never be short of things to do.


Puerto Banús is the most famous of these, and is just a 15-minute drive from Finca Buenaventura. Here you can spend the the day people-watching in one of the many water-front restaurants or cafes, while the mega-yachts bob in the harbour and the Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Bentleys cruise past.  Tourists and locals alike can peruse the new collections of designers including Louis Vuitton, Dolce&Gabanna and Christian Dior. However, Puerto Banús really comes alive at night when people spill out of the bars into the streets in glamorous outfits, and later head to local nightclubs including Olivia Valere and Cavalli Club.


Marbella’s Casco Antiguo (Old Town) is a more traditional affair, and consists of cobbled alleyways dotted with tapas bars, chic boutiques selling handmade clothing and jewellery and the beautiful Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Square). This is only a 25 minute drive from the Finca.


Another attraction not to be missed in the Marbella area is the Paseo Marítimo (Beach Walkway). Covering a distance of more than 6 kilometres, the pathway in lined with palm trees and will take pedestrians along the sea front through a plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants while they take in the stunning vistas.

Finca Buenaventura guests will also be within 15 minutes of Estepona, with its many beach restaurants, shops, bars and lively atmosphere. This is known as the quieter end of the Costa del Sol, however, there is still plenty to do. The marina, while not as extravagant as Puerto Banús, is a great place to spend an afternoon watching the local fisherman’s boats cruise in and out. There is also a craft market here on Sundays. The old town is a warren of pedestrianised cobbled streets which guests can get lost in for many hours, stopping for some Sangria along the way.


Other popular destinations surrounding the Finca include Sotogrande, where guests can spend a day on the beautiful beaches or attend one of the frequent polo events in Summer, and Ronda, a historic mountaintop city famous for its views from the famous stone bridge which spans its gorge. Benahavís is another attraction not to be missed, well-renowned for its Michelin starred restaurants which have led to its nickname ‘The Dining Room of the Costa Del Sol’. For more adventurous guests, Benahavís is also home to the river walk which consists of jumping off rocks into natural pools, swimming through caves and admiring the waterfalls. 


These are just some of the attractions in the area, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be on hand to give more specific details.
