Living in one of the best addresses in Europe


Marbella ticks all the right boxes when it comes to luxury living along the Mediterranean coast, Marbella is more than just a Spanish holiday destination on the Mediterranean Sea, it is a concept of luxury, glamour and lifestyle – a vision of California on the sunny edge of Europe. It’s this principle of cosmopolitan freedom and well-being that has formed the basis for the town’s enduring appeal among people from across Europe and beyond.




Marbella occupies perhaps the best section of the Costa del Sol’s coastal strip, which extends between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountain ranges rising up a few kilometres inland. It is this topographical setting that gives the whole region a blessed microclimate made up of gentle winters and warm, long summers; but within this area, Marbella is particularly privileged.


Rainfall is seasonal and infrequent here, but somehow Marbella is like a lush, natural garden where vegetation grows fast and well. It is for this reason also that golf courses thrive in this environment, and while the coastline is the domain of beachside promenades, resort hotels, luxury apartments and villas, verdant fairways follow the gentle roll of the terrain inland, flanked by country clubs and leafy residential areas such as Nueva Andalucía, Guadalmina and Los Monteros.


By the time they reach the lower slopes of mountain ranges such as the Sierra Bermeja and Sierra Blanca, the golf courses occupy rounded green valleys bordered by luxurious homes in what are five-star deluxe gated communities such as Sierra Blanca. In a town such as Marbella, known for its spectacular sea, golf and mountain views, this is perhaps the most impressive vantage point of all, with stunning vistas down to the coast, the sea, Gibraltar and the North African shoreline.





Marbella is centrally located on the Costa del Sol, which means it is just over half an hour to the international airports at Málaga and Gibraltar, with high-speed AVE train connections from Málaga to major cities across Spain and beyond to France and the rest of Europe. The flying time to most main European destinations is 2½ hours and the high-speed train will take you to Madrid Central Station in roughly the same time.




The actual town of Marbella forms the basis for the much larger area that now carries its name. Originally a village of fishermen and farmers, it was ‘discovered’ in the late 1940s by Spanish aristocrats such as Ricardo Soriano and of course Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, the creator of the legendary Marbella Club Hotel – and the man who put this beautiful spot on the map and made it internationally famous.


The great stars, royals, aristocrats and tycoons of the 1950s and 1960s all fell in love with Marbella, acquiring holiday properties here or even making Marbella their year-round home. The allure continued to grow with the years, as sheikhs and those successful enough to allow it visited or lived here. Each decade saw an evolution of this exciting town with its can-do attitude and international population, spreading outwards from the historic old town and the palm-lined boulevard that is the Golden Mile.


This stylish avenue connects Marbella town with Puerto Banús, the jet-set marina inaugurated in 1970. Today, Marbella can be divided into distinct areas, occupying over 40 kilometres of coastline and extending into the foothills of mighty mountain ranges.





The property market in Marbella is characterised by luxury private villas and exclusive gated communities of apartments set within landscaped gardens and often including amenities such as swimming pools, indoor heated pools and spas, gyms, sundecks and sometimes even reception and concierge services. The top location remains frontline beach Marbella, followed by frontline golf, country clubs and peaceful residential areas, including even country locations on the edge of the Marbella municipality.
