Cataleya Estepona, The Definitive Buying Guide

16 May 2022 | Developments Guide

We present you a new entry in our blog, in this case it is about Cataleya a very modern residential complex of apartaments with a key location in Estepona, close to the golf, not far from the beach and with quick access to Marbella, San Pedro Alcántara and Benahavis.


Cataleya is located in the municipality of Estepona, just 5 km from San Pedro de Alcántara, 7.5 km from the well-known Puerto Banús and 14 km from Marbella, which can be reached either via the ring road or the elegant Ashmawi Boulevard.

As I have already mentioned, despite being located in the municipality of Estepona, Cataleya is one km further from Estepona than Marbella, specifically 15 km from Estepona.

It is also worth mentioning that at the same exit of the A-7 there is a turning with exits both towards Marbella and Estepona, which avoids having to change direction with the consequent loss of time.

With these minimal distances we can see its excellent location and the ease of finding all kinds of services to satisfy our daily needs as well as leisure and commercial needs. The area also includes the Atalaya International School and the Atalaya Golf and Country Club golf course.


Cataleya was built on land totalling around 46,500 square metres. Its contemporary style prioritises light using large windows, light materials and spacious terraces to enjoy the fantastic weather that usually brings the area to life.

Let us now review the three phases in which Cataleya was built.

Below is the Master Plan for phase 2 of Cataleya:

This is undoubtedly a great project with a total of 179 apartments distributed in 19 buildings and first class communal areas with several outdoor infinity pools, large green areas, outdoor gymnasium as well as an indoor heated swimming pool located in phase 2.

All properties occupy the entire width of the building so they are very bright and prioritise outdoor living, incorporating their large south-west facing terraces into the living room thanks to the complete opening of their large windows.

Phases 1 and 2 were completed in 2018 and Phase 3 in 2019.

The 2 and 3 bedroom apartments include parking for two cars and the penthouses for two or three cars depending on the building. All include a storage room.

The very large storage rooms on the ground floor and the large private gardens, which are sure to delight the owners, are particularly impressive.

All Cataleya homes, regardless of the phase in which they are located, have west orientation with afternoon sun.

With regard to efficiency and energy savings, Cataleya meets the requirements established by the relevant regulations. Thanks to its insulation and inertia characteristics, air permeability and exposure to solar radiation, this project achieves a project C energy rating. In addition to this, all its domestic appliances are category A or higher, which, together with the production of domestic hot water by aerothermal energy, gives Cataleya a totally innovative and responsible character.

The three phases of Cataleya have the same qualities and equipment. Below, I will list the most outstanding ones:

The communal areas feature contemporary landscaping, with automatic irrigation, garden lighting, outdoor infinity pools, indoor heated pool, galvanised steel pergolas, outdoor sports areas and top quality OTIS lifts.


Despite having the feeling of being in “the countryside” nothing could be further from the truth. Cataleya is close to Atalaya Golf and Country Club and its clubhouse, as well as the other golf courses in the area such as El Paraiso, El Campanario, Real Club de golf Guadalmina and Los Flamingos.

In addition, the prestigious private international school Atalaya International School is only a few minutes away from the complex.

Just five minutes away we find a complete supermarket and on both sides of the main road that runs along the Costa del Sol we can access numerous shopping centres such as Guadalmina, Diana, El Pilar and Benavista, equipped with all kinds of services, restaurants, cafes, banks, pharmacies, professional offices and any service we need.

As you can see, everything you need is just a stone’s throw away.


It seems that once again we are meeting the expectations of the area and are faced with a project of the highest quality in its style.

We have already mentioned its location, equidistant between Marbella and Estepona, its modern, luminous design that emphasises quality of life, comfort and the enjoyment of more than 320 days of sunshine on the Costa del Sol.

Thanks to all this, Cataleya has been revalued in recent years and is now a very popular complex.

Within the different typologies of the complex, I would like to highlight its ground floors. Without a doubt I have always been impressed by the gardens, which are tremendously spacious, especially in the corners. In addition, the fact that the storage room is on the same floor and attached to the house is a great advantage. The rest of the typologies also have very large outdoor spaces thanks to their huge terraces, as I have already mentioned. Everything will depend on availability and budget, as always.

If you are looking for modern and quality construction this is a very interesting option but if your priority is sea views, this is not the complex for you.

As you may be guessing, at Benarroch Real Estate we are specialists in Cataleya Estepona, marketing this fantastic project from the very beginning. I remain, together with all my team, at your full disposal to find you your ideal apartment, penthouse or ground floor in Cataleya.
