TUCKED up in the hills above Marbella, a new, luxury housing community is starting to take shape.

Spread out across 50 hectares of green rolling hills, views of the impressive La Concha mountain are situated in one direction, while the Mediterranean Sea can be viewed in the other.
As Marketing Director Ailse Warriner-MacFarlane explains, Palo Alto combines ‘modern contemporary living with the tranquility of nature’.
“This is what living in Spain is all about,” Ailse says. “The countryside is so dramatic and peaceful and yet Palo Alto is just a five minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Marbella.
“The aim of Palo Alto is to infuse both aspects of Costa del Sol life.”
With two, three and four-bed apartments as well as three and four-bed penthouses, starting from €440,000, no expense has been spared in ensuring the highest quality of finish.

“We are already seeing great interest from buyers all over the world,” Sales Director Simon Boxus says. “In total 14 different nationalities have purchased at Palo Alto including Brits, Germans, Belgians and Scandinavians.
“For me Palo Alto is by far the best development I have been involved with in 18 years in the job.
“It will be the new premium address on the coast and will rival the likes of El Madronal and Zagaleta.”
As well as offering luxury living, Palo Alto will also feature a number of enviable on site amenities including a functional health club, state-of-the-art gym, yoga/pilates studio, an indoor pool and spa, business centre, cafeteria, concierge service and rental and management services.
