Who we are

Urbanization Nogal is a private urbanization near the small village named La Herradura (City of Almuñécar) in the province of Granada.

The location is very special and unique, because the urbanization is located about 300 meters above sealevel on a ridge overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and is surrounded by a protected nature area ‘Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo’, which ensures that nature is one of the most important characteristics of Nogal.

Visitors immediately get this feeling of nature when they enter Cerro Gordo, alongside the beautiful mediterranean vegetation there is an abundance of local wildlife including Ibex and wild Boar. A small road threads itself through the reserve climbing steeply up to the ridge where you will find Urbanization Nogal.

There are currently 37 villas within the urbanisation, the earliest dating from 1975 although the majority are much more recent. Four villas are under construction and there are also 21 additional plots available for development.
