Case Studies – a review of some of the many successful real estate developments of recent years that bear the FM Properties Realty Group stamp


Completed within the Golden Mile zone in 1999, this luxurious complex located in the prestigious hill club area of Lomas de Marbella features a sports club, squash courts, two heated swimming pools with Jacuzzi, Turkish baths, saunas, treatment rooms, a fully equipped gym, billiards room and a British-style bar.


Set within exclusive Cascada de Camoján, at the foot of the Sierra Blanca range, this complex is made up of 80 spacious homes ranging from stylish apartments to luxurious 600m2 villas. The gated community launched in 2003 includes such amenities as tennis courts, a private 9-hole golf course and a country club with swimming pool, gym and sauna.


Completed in the same year, Bahía del Velerin has likewise become a reference for style and quality. Set right upon the beach, its distinctively appealing 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments and duplex penthouses enjoy magnificent Mediterranean views whilst surrounded by the lush greenery of the urbanisation. Add a cascading pool, a beach club and an inimitable seaside location and it becomes clear why this development remains so sought after.


Set on the western side of Estepona, Costa Galera was released in 2004, offering a luxury residential development in the Estepona area with spacious 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and duplex penthouses. Endowed with its own country club, golf academy, spa and fitness centre, padel tennis courts and restaurant, it offers a complete lifestyle option enveloped by tropical gardens.


Another signature development, this project featuring 102 luxuriously appointed 2-bedroom apartments was completed in 2006. Positioned near the beach and open countryside not far from the village of Benahavis, the complex is bordered by golf courses and features a private spa within its manicured grounds.


Cortijo del Mar is a highly successful residential tourism complex whose 250 luxury apartments and townhouses enliven Mediterranean architecture with Caribbean touches. The blend of the two is highly attractive, and when combined with beautifully finished homes and manicured gardens the result is a series of modern homes that distinguish themselves from the rest. Delivered in 2010 with the finest materials and latest amenities, these properties offer a stylish modern lifestyle complete with Domotic home automation systems enhanced with first-class on-site services and close proximity to the beaches between San Pedro and Estepona.

The manner in which the above developments were conceived, constructed, promoted and subsequently managed reflects the diversity and breadth of FM Properties Realty Group – and they are merely a sample of the 1,800 properties we have sold over the past years. Not only have we built up a successful track record in the international promotion of these properties, but in cases such as Cortijo del Mar, FM Properties Realty Group also provides hotel-style services as part of the holiday rentals package that enables our homeowners to maximise their return on investment without having to worry about managing the process themselves.

In recent years this overlap between real estate and tourism has led to the creation of the FM “Your Vacation Resort” brand. As a company with its roots in the Don Tico Hotels group, our expertise in this field shows in the seamless operation of the three residential tourism complexes we operated in the Estepona and Marbella areas. In this area alone we managed a total of 1,400 beds between 1992 and 2004. And today we continue to add to our credentials in this field with the luxurious Resort Cortijo del Mar,in Estepona.
