Monte Mayor Development Plots

Within the Monte Mayor estate there are more than 50 villa plots available and 70 built villas constructed. The Monte Mayor development plots won’t stay on the market for long. It’s location alone makes this area a prime real estate location for the savvy property investors.

The total land for development available is in excess of 415.000 m2 with a total building volume of more than 55.000 m2, out of which 14.000m2 is for 52 villas, 30.000 m2 for 230 apartments and 12.300 m2 for 82 townhouses.  The building volume has flexibility to be exchanged between the different land areas upon town hall approval.


There are a variety of views including mountain, sea and river valley views, as well as different topography and orientation. The plots come in all shapes and sizes but usually cover a minimum area of at least 3,000m2 on which one can build on average 300m2 to 400m2 of living space. Where a larger house is required it can easily be built over adjoining plots.

The permitted building volume of around 12% per plot is kept deliberately low to ensure that every property enjoys a good view as well as plenty of privacy. This contrasts with normal building volumes (typically at least 20% or more) in so many other developments where the average house covering around 500m2 is built on only 900m2 or 1000m2 of land. Villa plot prices vary from 140.000€ to just above 300.000€.

Once you have chosen your plot, you can build your villa to your exact requirements and have the luxury of decorating and furnishing it to your very own style and taste. There are two ways to build a house on a plot. You can either build it yourself or we can help you build it with our projects team. If you wish to build it yourself, we can recommend, at no extra cost and if you desire, reputable firms that we have contracted in the past and who already have plenty of experience building on the terrain at Monte Mayor.
