La Solana is a select residential community of just 24 pastel coloured townhouses. Undoubtedly the address is an asset in itself, but the views are among the best you'll ever chance upon. Remarkably even the ground floor apartments have impressive sea or mountain views, but the penthouse offers a real feast for the eyes. From the wraparound terrace you can take in the instantly recognizable La Concha Mountain to the north, the charming Arabic tiled rooftops to the east, the glistening sea to the south and the most arresting uninterrupted vista to the west comprising King Fayd's palace, the Port of Banús and Gibraltar and Africa beyond.
La Solana is translated as a ‘sun trap' and every measure has been taken to make the properties exactly that. The owners will also enjoy maximum natural light inside from the many windows and light paintwork.
Attention to detail and Andalucian architecture is evident throughout; wrought iron hinges, rustic style wooden window frames, shutters and wardrobe doors and feature stone fireplace in the lounge. As you would expect from a quality developer, there is individually controlled hot and cold air conditioning and some bathrooms boast underfloor heating.
Although the generous proportions and imposing architecture give the feeling that you are living in your own private villa, you benefit from the security of being within a gated community and a refreshing freeform pool surrounded by manicured gardens and tall pines giving dappled shade.
