Two centuries ago, along the Southern coast of Spain, observation towers protected the locals from invading marauders across the sea. When warnings of approaching Moors were given, Calahonda locals would hide in an old fortified house painted the same colour of the surrounding soil to try and be less noticable. Today that house is a proud part of the urbanisation which became known as Sitio de Calahonda. Jose de Orbaneja arrived at this old house called the “Strong House of Calahonda” in 1963 and began development of the area. Things have certainly changed since then, the at the time Sales Manager, a Mr. Assayag, promoted the area by selling plots of land of 400sqm, with a house of 120sqm for the princely sum of £5,000, and threw in with the sale a car (at the time a Seat 600) a Spanish guitar and a bottle of red wine! Sales techniques have certainly changed since then!

Located in the Province of Malaga, midway between Marbella and Fuengirola, Sitio de Calahonda offers the possibility of living in an Urbanisation of quality and prestige. The area extends from the main coastal highway up to undulating hills 300 meters above sea level, offering fabulous views of the countryside and down to the sea. With its ideal location, well run administrative services, financial stability, green zones, parks and extensive facilities, Sitio de Calahonda can surely boast to being one of the finest developments along the Costa del Sol. Spread over 300 hectares, the area became known as Little England back in the 70’s, due in its shape to Britain’s and the large number of Britons who prided themselves in how clean their streets were kept! The local Port of Cabopino offers those keen sailors and water sports enthusiast 170 berths for small and medium sized vessels, and surrounded by a nature reserve of sand dunes it has one of the finest beaches along the coast.

At Sitio de Calahonda, the “Pueblo Look” survived and flourished. The urbanisation being a classic example of how to preserve the splendour of Mediterranean design, while blending it with the comforts and style the discerning modern buyer seeks. Having won several awards over the years, including “Resident Tourism Award”, Calahonda is applying constant improvements to its road network, shopping facilities and social and sporting infrastructure. Reforestation is constantly on the agenda, and as well as having 600,000 m² of green belt, a 9 hole golf course right in the middle of the urbanisation and 7 other 18 hole courses within a 20 km distance it boasts among others:
