Monte Mayor: Monte Mayor lies in a valley nature reserve surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and rich flora and fauna, just 20km from Marbella. Building volume has been kept deliberately low to safeguard the valley’s peace and tranquility. An exclusive clubhouse, driving range, tennis courts and other resort facilities complete the project. Rare Idyllic isolation often comes at the expense of being far from so-called civilization. Surprisingly this sheltered and peaceful valley, punctuated by the scent of pine groves, lies less than ten minutes' drive from the main coastal road and the beach and the traditional Andalusian villages of Cancelada and Benahavís border either side of this Exclusive estate.
