Puerto Banús, the historic centre in Malaga city and the area around Fuengirola marina are the three most expensive areas to rent a property in Andalucía, according to new data.

The price per square metre in these areas is 21.20, 16.90 and 15.30 euros, respectively, according to an analysis by real estate portal Fotocasa. All three are also in the top 50 most expensive places to rent in Spain. El Tejar-Hacienda Bizcochero, in Malaga city, also stood out with an average asking price of 13.45 euros per square metre.

"This is the first time the rent for a typical property of around 85 square metres in one of the most exquisite areas of Spain has exceeded 2,000 euros per month," María Matos, spokesperson for Fotocasa said. "These neighbourhoods show the existing interest in moving to live in a prime area where only the most privileged can afford the luxury," she added. Price increases in these areas have also been influenced by an imbalance between supply and demand, which is why price growth has been sustained over the past three years, Matos pointed out. Madrid and Barcelona lead the ranking, but Valencia, Las Palmas and Malaga follow in their footsteps due to the sharp rise in rent.

Seville is also home to some of the most expensive neighbourhoods in Andalucía. Triana Oeste, Nervión and Arenal-Museo recorded prices of 13.50, 13.10 and 12.60 euros per square metre, respectively. They are closely followed by Paseo Marítimo-San José-La Laguna (12 euros per square metre) in Cadiz city; Triana Este (11.30) in Seville city; San Matías-Realejo (11.10) in Granada city, and Cruz Roja (10.60) in Seville city.
