Marbella is unashamedly the queen of the Costa del Sol, the most famous holiday region in Spain.  But while the entire Costa has been developed with little taste or consideration, the town of Marbella has been created with considerable style and beauty, with the finest hotels, magnificent apartments, and great restaurants gathered around fine marinas and great golf courses.

Certainly money has helped: the development started in the 1950s when high ranking European aristocrats and glitterati gathered around the creation of the exclusive Marbella Club, the whole given a boost in 1970 when the flashy marina of Puerto Banus was opened, home to some of the most imposing sea craft in the Mediterranean. This created the famous ‘Golden Mile’ between the two centres, a strip of land of unparalleled wealth.

But the region is not just all about money and high society. The setting of Marbella is beautiful – a 27 mile strip of coastline sheltered by beautiful coastal mountains. The old town is filled with Renaissance and late gothic buildings, as well as hints of the long Moorish occupation of the town, with whitewashed houses hung with bougainvillea and orange blossom and a wonderful oasis of little restaurants, boutiques and cafes. There are outstanding museums to visit also. In the hinterland hills are countless unspoiled villages, including imposing Ronda and the famous white villages typical of the region.

For culture the historic centre of Malaga has been tastefully preserved and freed of traffic; its museums are outstanding, the Picasso, the Carmen Thyssen, the offshoots of the Pompidou in Paris and the Russian Museum of St Petersburg. There’s a lot to choose from and we can help you enjoy the diversity of it all!

Marbella enjoys a uniquely pleasant micro-climate bringing marvelous weather. This is due to it's position with the Mediterranean Sea to the south and the Sierra Blanca mountain range behind it to the north. A truly fabulous sun-trap with hot, dry summers and temperatures reaching high 20s. Winters are mild but get a bit rainy, although this is usually short-lived so needn't spoil your trip if you choose to go at this time.
