Benahavis village is situated between Marbella and Estepona in the foothills of the “Serrania de Ronda” at an altitude of approximately 150m above sea level and 7km from the beaches. It is one of the largest municipalities of the Malaga province and one of the richest villages in Spain. It can only be reached by one road, which is the reason it is such a secure and safe place. Only 40 years ago, it consisted of around 30 houses, but since then has seen a growth where there are around 2.000 inhabitants. The entire territory of Benahavis shows a total of around 6.700 inhabitants (2016), although plenty of foreigners have a second home without being registered at the town hall.
The village is well known on the Coast for its gastronomy and in summer we advise you to book a table as the village is packed in July and August with tourists coming up from the Costa del Sol.
