Properties For Sale in Las Chapas
Las Chapas is an exclusive residential area in the eastern part of Marbella municipality, about 15 minutes from the town centre. It is a highly coveted location for luxury homebuyers seeking either a permanent or a holiday home, as well as for investors looking for an excellent buy-to-rent property from Promas Estates. Like other urbanisations along the Marbella coastline, Las Chapas is divided into two parts – beachside and hillside – both offering an exceptional selection of contemporary and classic Spanish villas. The residential development extends all the way to Marbella’s border with Mijas Costa, meaning residents and holidaymakers can enjoy the finest services, amenities and attractions of these two iconic Costa del Sol municipalities.Villas | Apartments | Townhouses | Penthouses

Over the years, property development in Las Chapas has focused primarily on villas. Many on the beach side of the dividing coastal highway were built decades ago and retain the sophisticated charm of Marbella’s early era of luxury construction for discerning international buyers. They also have the advantage of enjoying matured gardens and tree-lined streets, providing both privacy and a wonderful natural setting. Across the main road, the area is also highlighted by stylish villas with extensive landscaped gardens. Many have been built privately by their owners, which adds an attractive touch of modern architectural flair to this area.
More so than perhaps any other area on Marbella’s eastern coast, the two parts of Las Chapas tend to blend seamlessly together, from stunning beachside villas to breathtaking mountain homes. Development over the years has been scrupulously low-density and low-rise, thus limiting the construction of apartment blocks. Multi-story mansions in the heights of Las Chapas provide spectacular views over the coast, with picturesque mountain backdrops. Down on the coast, the beach is just a short walk away for most residents, with comfortable pathways and only minimal uphill walking required.
Las Chapas is the perfect location for a diversely multinational group of people seeking their dream luxury home in the Mediterranean sun. Its relative seclusion and air of relaxed affluence draws people who occasionally like to enjoy an evening out at one of Marbella’s top restaurants or night spots but who prefer to return home to the peace and calm of residential streets with hardly any traffic (just fellow residents). Security is of paramount importance throughout the residential development, with meticulous 24-hour vigilance by teams of professionals. The area also appeals to people who like to be as close as possible for visits to towns to the east (Mijas, Fuengirola. etc.), but still have a prestigious Marbella address.
With villas comprising most of the properties in Las Chapas, people seeking middle-sized and priced apartments and townhouses tend to focus on such neighbouring areas as Elviria – or even across the municipal border in Mijas. Promas Estates has several fantastic villas available for viewing, from around €1.5 million. For the ultimate in elite living, we can arrange an exclusive approved viewing of one of the most exceptional properties in Marbella: a seven-bedroom villa with magnificently landscaped gardens (including fruit trees) and luxury features that are seldom seen in any other property on the Costa del Sol. Built in 2014 and on the market for €15 million, this home is true perfection. For those who would like to build their own home, we also have (for €450,000) a flat building plot extending over 2,000 square metres that is ideal for a large-sized villa.
As it is located close to Marbella’s eastern border with Mijas Costa, Las Chapas offers excellent links to Málaga-Costa del Sol International Airport – one of Europe’s premier flight hubs – via the N340 coastal road or alternatively the AP7 toll road. The journey is a comfortable 30 to 45 minutes, depending on traffic. There are several top restaurants and chiringuitos (beach restaurants) in Las Chapas, and key general services and amenities including a supermarket and 24-hour pharmacy. For a more comprehensive range of facilities and attractions, Elviria is just a five-minute drive to the west and Mijas has a first-class services infrastructure for international residents.
Eastern Marbella’s reputation for having the best beaches in the whole municipality extends all the way to Las Chapas. Golden sands and crystal-clear Mediterranean waters await buyers who find their dream home in Las Chapas with Promas Estates. The standout beach is unquestionably Artola, a 1,200-metre stretch of rolling sand dunes and striking native vegetation that is protected as a nature preserve and was officially declared a “natural monument” in 2001. One of the Costa del Sol’s main marinas, Cabopino, is located not far from Artola. In addition to a flotilla of stunning yachts bobbing at their berths, the marina also has several top restaurants and an extensive range of watersports activities.
