El Paraíso is a popular region in the Spanish Costa del Sol. Located between Marbella and Estepona, El Paraíso shares in the glitz and glamour that the region has become synonymous with in recent years. Stretching from the coast to El Paraíso Golf Club, and into the valley behind; the region comprises a mix of well-established luxury apartment complexes, townhouses, and villas.


Directly translated as “The Paradise”, El Paraíso certainly lives up to its name; attracting holiday-makers, expats and celebrities from all over the world. The area is popular for its high quality golf courses and world-class facilities; and boasts some of the most luxurious property available on the Costa del Sol.


The area has a vast array of luxury facilities and amenities; most of which can be found in the Benavista Commercial Centre. Facilities include banks, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, travel agents, car hire and a variety of professional services; meaning residents have everything they need to spend all year in this fantastic location.


The beautiful El Paraíso Golf Club boasts one of the Costa del Sol's best-loved championship courses, designed by golfing legend Gary Player. The region is also home to the Paraíso and Benavista Country Clubs; providing residents with some fantastic settings from which to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.


In addition to the luxury golf courses and facilities; many people travel to El Paraiso looking for a glimpse of their favourite celebrities.  Over the years El Paraíso has been host to many famous faces. Paul O’Grady, Cliff Richard and Cilla Black were all regularly spotted in the area; with Black holidaying at her beautiful El Paraíso villa every August for almost three decades. Pop legend Prince also owned this stunning villa in El Paraíso, which he bought as a wedding gift to his first wife Mayte Garcia. As you would expect, this property is flamboyant and extravagant; making it the perfect example of the quality of property you can expect in El Paraíso.


The wider Costa del Sol region is also no stranger to famous faces; from the early days of Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and Sean Connery, to today’s crop of publicity-hunting reality TV stars; from British royalty and Saudi Sheikhs to the Obamas and Vladimir Putin. Anyone who can afford to own property here wants to own property here. 


Known as the ‘sun coast’, the Costa del Sol is a world-renowned summer destination, boasting up to 11 hours of sunshine each day during the summer months. Brits have been travelling to the coast for over 60 years and today, not only do thousands of people visit the region each year, but over 300,000 British expatriates have joined the Hollywood A-listers in purchasing a luxury property on the Costa del Sol.
