Mabel Villa de Paris: the Most Expensive Flats in Spain

2 December 2019 –

Sales of Spain’s most expensive new luxury apartment building, located in Madrid, have already begun and only one flat is still left for sale. The Mabel Villa de Paris development is under construction in a heavily-guarded area next to the country’s Supreme Court building.

The Mabel Villa de Paris, a former 19th-century building with a protected façade, is located on Calle General Castaños. Mabel Real Estate, a subsidiary of Mabel Capital, is in charge of the development, where flats are being sold for between €15,000-20,000 per square meter. The building will have just 12 three-to-five bedrooms flats, along with a spa and fitness centre. Marta Ortega, the daughter of the owner of Inditex, will live in the penthouse.

Mabel Capital Purchases the Los Llanos Estate in Estepona for €20M

14 February 2019 – Preferente

Mabel Capital, the investment company owned by Abel Matutes Prats y Manuel Campos in which the sports players Rafa Nadal and Pau Gasol also own stakes, has completed the purchase of Los Llanos estate, on the beachfront in Estepona, spanning almost 40,000 m2, for €20 million. Luxury homes are going to be constructed on the plot, according to La Información.

The owner of the estate was the company Vee Inmuebles Estepona SL, behind which, as the administrator, was the German magnate Uwe Cloppenburg, owner of the retail textile chain Peek & Cloppenburg, who was asking €20 million for the plot in a single payment.

The estate has a buildable surface area of 10,000 m2, therefore, it may be used for single-family homes. The most likely outcome is the construction of luxury apartments on the beachfront in one of the most sought-after and expensive areas of the Costa del Sol.

In March 2018, the investment company owned by Matutes closed one of the most important real estate operations in Portugal. Mabel Capital acquired four buildings in Lisbon, for which it paid more than €74 million, as previously reported by preferente.com
