Welcome to El Rosario

Thank you for accessing our Urbanisation's website. Whether you are already an "El Rosarian" or thinking of buying a property here or just simply curious about one of the oldest urbanisations outside Marbella Town proper, we hope you find the information contained here interesting and useful.

El Rosario has a more residential character than most urbanisations on the coast with many young families living here whose children attend nearby international and Spanish schools and colleges. Amongst its different nationalities are Spanish, Germans, Swedes, British, Dutch and many others.

El Rosario is a mature urbanisation regulated by its own set of Statutes (laid down in 1973) and a Management Committee of Owners, who volunteer their time, and who are elected by the Annual General Meeting. The Committee is assisted by a professionally qualified administrator and a permanent secretary who is located on the Urbanisation and available from 10:00 to 14:00 Monday to Friday. Community maintenance, such as road cleaning, collection of garden rubbish, daily cleaning of the basura area etc., is carried out by three permanent employees.

El Rosario covers an area in excess of 800,000m2 and divided into some 400 separate plots with, currently, 350 villa owners. All the properties are individual villas — no apartment blocks are allowed — with many homes having beautiful views of the Mediterranean, including views all the way to Gibraltar and beyond. Being a long-established urbanisation, El Rosario has mature gardens, lots of greenery and plots with a minimum of 1,000m2. With its own wells, which supply a large portion of the water consumed at very reasonable rates, El Rosario rarely has water problems. The Urbanisation also has its own security with access barriers manned from late afternoon to dawn and patrol cars circulating throughout the night.

The Urbanisation has a well-developed Commercial Centre with a supermarket, several restaurants, newsagent, architects, hairdressers, laundry and insurance brokerage plus car-hire and, of course, its famous clay-court tennis club — El Casco.

We're sure that existing "El Rosarians" will agree that we are fortunate to live in such a beautiful urbanisation. For those thinking of living here — come for a visit — you'll be more than welcome.
