Only minutes away from Marbella, we encounter the picturesque village of Istán and its beautiful relaxing countryside. Leading up to the village, the road passes by the urbanizations “Sierra Blanca Country Club” and “Zahara de Istán”. Located in a preserved area, the few recently built villas, apartments and townhouses have an unbeatable view over the lake, countryside and to the sea. Property buyers who are looking to buy one of these properties not only prefer high quality in a natural environment, but also see its future since Istán is a protected area and therefore will never turn into a built up area. This makes Istan property a very attractive option for country lovers. ¡See our apartments for sale in Istan!

Properties for sale in Istán, Spain

At the top of the road we reach the adorable village of Istán. It is easy to forget that the playground of the international jet set is just down the road. The friendly village residents leave their windows and doors open while sitting with backgammon games on benches and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of their little piece of heaven.

Istan property offers purchasers a more ‘campo’ (country) feel thanks to the surroundings of mountain wildlife, towering trees and a stunning lake which is over 8km long.

Istán villas and Istán townhouses are ideal for people wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the coast while still having the amenities within a 10 minute drive.

With an estimated population of 1500, Istan offers the truly traditional andalusian way of life. Originally it was a Moorish settlement and survived due to its distance from the coast, as moors where not allowed to live near the coast after the reconquest to avoid communication with their allies in North Africa. Our Istan properties for sale is what you are looking for!
