Unlike some resort towns on the Costa del Sol, Estepona has remained true to its fishing village roots and has retained its typical Andalusian atmosphere. Once a small fishing and farming village it is now a bustling community and tourist destination located West of San Pedro in the direction of Algeciras.

Although very popular with visitors, it has managed to retain much of its local Spanish charm. The municipality stretches for more than 21km along the Mediterranean Sea and includes some of the best and quietest beaches on the Costa del Sol. Estepona also boasts spectacular scenery, including the Los Reales mountains to the north. The highest resort peak is at 1449m above sea level, one of the highest in the province. These mountains are home to the extremely rare Pinsapo pine tree.

Estepona town has had an expansion in recent years. It is now high on the list of the most beautiful resorts on this side of the Costa del Sol. Many streets are for pedestrians only and are flanked by whitewashed houses decorated with colourful geraniums. The beach promenade stretches for several kilometres.

Benahavis is one of the richest municipalities in Spain. It owes this to a large number of high-quality luxury developments around the village. Golf resorts such as La Quinta and Los Arqueros belong to Benahavis, as does La Zagaleta, an exclusive gated estate where some of the most exclusive properties in Spain and even Europe can be found.

The municipality stretches over a large area of about 150km2, from the coastal area to the mountains between Marbella and Estepona. It differs from the other Costa del Sol resorts due to the fact that it’s a more quiet and traditional mountain village which has retained its Andalusian feel.

Although the village is small, the municipality itself is very large. It includes numerous mountain ranges, river valleys and forests, making it one of the most beautiful places on the Costa del Sol. Home to many golf courses and exclusive properties, and its natural environment combined with very low-density construction, makes Benahavis very popular for buying property on the Costa del Sol, especially among foreigners looking for an oasis of peace, luxury and quiet within easy reach of Marbella.

→ MUST GO: play golf at Los Arqueros Golf & Country Club or visit the luxury residential resort of La Zagaleta.

San Pedro de Alcantara

San Pedro de Alcantara is a tourist place, once known for its sugar cane, now mainly for its long golden beaches. San Pedro de Alcántara is in an ideal location, because of its close proximity (10 km) to Marbella and Puerto Banus (a few minutes), but less crowded. From San Pedro de Alcantara you are only a few minutes’ drive from the Sierra Ronda. An exciting drive of 50 km through and along rocky landscapes, forests, ravines and remote villages brings you to the beautiful old town of Ronda, known for its spectacular location. In the old town, with traditional Spanish atmosphere, is a beautiful square, narrow streets, terraces, bars and small shops. There are still beautifully restored buildings and a 6th Visigoth basilica.

A pleasant walk is from the town centre to the kilometres of the beautiful beach of Playa de San Pedro de Alcantara and promenade (Paseo Maritimo). Along the promenade a number of hotels, apartment complexes, many terraces and restaurants.

Don’t forget to visit Bora Bora. It was one of the first established (luxury) modern tropical beach clubs on the coast, with an excellent restaurant (Prince William and Harry came to Bora Bora beach in 1997 to ride the jet skis!).

Nueva Andalucia

Nueva Andalucia is a newly built area immediately north from Puerto Banus, consisting of luxurious villas and apartments set amidst splendid gardens and trees, that has become a highly sought-after spot for house buyers.

This former small fishing village was completely renovated in 1963 by the famous project developer José Banús and it was later renamed Nueva Andalucía or New Andalusia. The project was intended as a residential area for citizens who were not as wealthy as the sultans, kings and celebrities who had already settled in the Milla de Oro.

Above all Nueva Andalucía is mainly known as Golf Valley, as you will find 4 golf courses in the area, which makes this area the highest concentration of golf courses per inhabitant. The area is perfect for golfers because of the four top golf courses that are in the close proximity including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos, Aloha Golf and La Dama de Noche. Nueva Andalucia has a perfect balance, set far enough back from the bustle of Puerto Banus to feel peaceful amidst the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and close enough to walk into the port as and when necessary.

→ MUST GO:  go here to golf at LA QUINTA GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
→ MUST GO FOODIES: Restaurant Breathe, La Sala and Aquamist (nightclub)

Puerto Banus

Puerto Banús, located about 7 kilometres from the centre of Marbella, was developed by José Banús in the late 1960s. He was looking for something that would allow Marbella to develop economically and touristically. He came up with the look and feel of Puerto Banús: a beautiful Andalusian white village with a luxury marina in front of it. The opening in the ’70s was widely celebrated, with guests including the current king of Spain and Hugh Hefner.

Since then Puerto Banús has grown into one of Spain’s most famous marinas. Today, Puerto Banùs is visited by five million tourists every year. They can buy luxury items in the streets around the port in the shops of expensive brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Dolce & Gabbana and stroll along the Boulevard de la Fama.

Puerto Banùs is an absolute must!

→ MUST GO: go shopping at the Louis Vuitton store or rent a yacht in the marina. Learn more:


Marbella is the most famous seaside resort on the Costa del Sol and has a reputation as one of the most glamorous holiday destinations in Southern Europe. Discovered by the world’s jet-set in the 60’s, Marbella stands for luxury and high-quality experiences – that is why some of Europe’s highest quality properties can be found here, as well as first-class golf courses and some of the world’s best beach clubs.

The city of Marbella has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in southern Spain for many decades. This is mainly due to the excellent climate that prevails there throughout the year and the many beautiful hotels and accommodations that can be found there. Marbella is known for its excellent golf courses and there are no less than ten in the immediate vicinity of the city. The main attraction of Marbella remains, of course, the promenade where most of the restaurants and shops can be found.

Unlike many other seaside resorts in Spain, Marbella did not originate from a sleepy fishing village that later became a famous seaside resort, but was already a well-known place in Roman times, even though Marbella was known as Salduba at the time. The current name Marbella owes the city to the Moorish domination.

In the immediate vicinity of Marbella, there are quite a few golf courses. Some of them are right next to the city but most of them are in the hill around Marbella. The highest-rated courses in the Marbella area are Marbella Club Golf Resort, Flamingos Golf Club and Marbella Golf and Country Club. However, there is one thing the different courses all have and that is challenging holes. The hilly landscape of Marbella provides the necessary challenge while playing golf.

2. Water Fun

The world’s best DJs provide the soundtrack to a day of debauchery, where you’ll find a fully stocked bar and an electric atmosphere.

Or do you prefer a little more active? Water skiing is done especially during the summer months in Marbella when the temperature rises well above 25 degrees. There are several providers that offer boats and equipment along Costa del Sol.


3. Golf

Did you know that there are more golf courses in Marbella per inhabitant than anywhere else in the world? That’s why some refer to the Costa del Sol as the Golf Valley.
Golf is a sport that enables you to spend an enjoyable day surrounded by nature and peace and quiet. Playing golf on the Costa del Sol is synonymous with hitting the ball on a golf course designed by the best professionals, going from hole to hole with the sea as a backdrop and enjoying a game in a climate with enviable year-round temperatures. Few places in the world can offer similar conditions. We put together a small list for you with the creme de la creme of golf courses on the Costa Del Sol.

Los Naranjos

Los Naranjos Golf course is definitely a championship course. With large, curvy greens, wide paths and water in the play at several holes, the design is a true challenge for all handicap levels. With greens in perfect condition and continuous improvements to the playing terrain, Los Naranjos is one of the most outstanding courses on the Costa del Sol.

4. Equestrian

Well, maybe golf isn’t your thing. Maybe you are more of a horse lover. In that case, there are some amazing opportunities for you on the Costa del Sol as well.

Watch a game of polo

What do you think of watching an exciting game of Polo at the Santa Maria Polo Club in Sotogrande? The Santa Maria Polo Club in Sotogrande is a famed location on the polo high goal tournament circuit.
The famous grounds of Sotogrande have been dubbed the ‘Wimbledon of Polo Pitches’, they are renowned as the best in the world. This is partly due to their location; flanked on various sides by a tropical nursery, the Guadiaro River, extensive blue skies, sun and distant mountains.

The beach club that basically started it all, Nikki Beach is still the venue that sets the standards.The legendary Nikki Beach in Marbella represents everything cool and glamorous about beachside chilling.  This is where Marbella’s exclusive crowd can be found and is universally known for their fun vibes and good food. It has been a fixture on the Marbella scene for two decades. And what’s not to like?You can spend the whole day there or just rock up for the evening’s entertainment.

Finca Cortesin

The beach club of Finca Cortesin is one of the classiest ones around, so we couldn’t leave it out of this list. It’s an elegant and sophisticated affair where you relax immediately upon arrival, want for nothing and feel thoroughly loved throughout your stay and leave feeling utterly serene. The tasteful seating and sunbeds are either clustered around the infinity pool or facing out to sea on this attractive, and less developed stretch of coast. The restaurant serves up casual seafood and rice dishes, but to Finca Cortesin’s five-star standard.

6. Luxurious Nightlife

Olivia Valere

If you are more into ‘the real thing’, and want to spend the night with some real Hollywood stars, Olivia Valere is what you’re looking for. Olivia Valère is the epitome of glamorous and luxurious club experience in Marbella. You’ll party in a spectacular setting of outdoor arenas in a replica of the Alhambra and the Mezquita. So it’s no wonder celebrities enjoy being captured on camera at this club.

8. Culture


Mijas, a traditional white village at the foot of the Sierra de Mijas, was declared of historical and artistic importance in 1969. This is not so much because of its art and history, but because of the essence of its typical atmosphere and charisma, which gives the village an unmistakable artistic value with remains, reminiscent of its Muslim past. The historical centre is not limited to places such as the chapel of the Virgen de la Peña, the remains of the city walls with the remains of the old castle and the parish church, but also the Santa Ana district in the other part of the village.


Ronda is described as one of the most beautiful in Andalusia and even in Spain. Ronda is completely whitewashed and has some beautiful examples of typical Andalusian architecture. The city lies high above the River Guadalevin Gorge and has beautiful views of the fertile landscape and the incomparable mountains, including peaks at almost 2,000 meters altitude.

The city is divided into two sections: Ronda la Vieja (Old Ronda) is the name given to the area south of the famous Puente Nuevo bridge, built-in 1755 across the gorge; and Ronda la Nueva (New Ronda), which covers the rest of the town. Ronda la Vieja lives up to its name. You’ll find some of Ronda’s oldest monuments, as well as the Arab Baths and the Water Mine. There are many beautiful mansions with elegant terraces, delicately wrought iron window grilles and beautiful porticoes. Some have impressive views over the riverbanks and mountains.

You will also find the Ronda Bullring, one of the oldest in Spain and also a bullfighting museum. The main shops and restaurants in Ronda can be found in this part of town, as well as the train and bus stations.

Granada: Alhambra

The Alhambra in Granada is the most renowned monument in southern Spain and, according to some, even in Europe. In 2015, more than 2.5 million visitors enjoyed its impressive palaces and breathtaking views of the city of Granada. In fact, the Alhambra is located on the top of a hill in the centre of the city, allowing visitors to view districts such as Sacromonte and Albaicín from above, as well as the rest of the city stretching southwards.

Thanks to its thousand-year-old history, the Alhambra offers its visitors many different impressions. The huge complex has been inspired over time by Muslim, Christian and Gypsy cultures and this diversity makes it one of the most beloved and fascinating attractions.


9. Food

Dani Garcia

A must visit when in Marbella are the two restaurants of Dani García. We are of course talking about the impressive fine dining establishment Lobito del Mar of chef Dani García. The menu is heavily influenced by Andalusian cuisine and famously flavorful and prepared in innovative ways. Prepare yourself for mouthwatering dishes and an absolute unique ambience. If you feel like eating tapas, In brasserie BiBo, Dani Garcia brings together dishes that his gastronomic memory has been accumulating during trips inside and outside of Spain.


Skina is an intimate and lovely restaurant which currently holds two Michelin stars. You can find the restaurant in the Old Quarter of Marbella.
Fresh seafood is the emphasis, combined with a lovely wine from the restaurant’s impressive wine list.

Hills Café

Hills Café & Restaurant, the secret spot in Benahavis, offers lifestyle dining with a view!

When looking for a relaxed vibe, but with serious food, look no further than the Hills Café of the Benahavis Hills Country Club. The head chef Jean Francois Job brings an enormous Michelin Starred experience to the table and this is expressed in the surprising dishes, which differ from day-to-day. The restaurant is blessed with a gorgeous terrace where you can enjoy the magnificent sunset and the twinkling lights of the costa and even Africa at times…

10. Shopping

Marbella is a shopper’s paradise. With an incredibly high density of luxury shops per square metre, the marina of Puerto Banus offers one of the best luxury shopping experiences in southern Europe. Strolling along the port, you can find all the most prestigious world-class luxury brands from Christian Dior to Versace and Louis Vuitton to Cartier.

We highlighted some of the best stores for you.


11. Pump up the adrenaline

Are you more of an adrenaline lover? Why don’t you try one of these activities?

Ascari Circuit

If horses won’t do it for you, how about some petrol? If you love the sound of a good engine and your passion is fast cars, there’s nothing like the Ascari circuit in Marbella. If you become a member of the Ascari Club, you could even park your car(s) in their high-security garage to then test its limits in the track whenever you feel like it. If you prefer driving their Academy cars, you could see how it feels to be at the Wheel of a their Lotus Elise, their BMW M6, their Porsche GT3 or the Ascari KZ1, a car designed by Ascari himself. Tempting, huh?

11. Bonus tip:

Go skiing in the Sierra Nevada and stay in El Lodge

One of the great things about living in the Costa Del Sol is the ability to go skiing in the winter and spring months. After the Alps, the Sierra Nevada is the highest mountain range in Europe with peaks of up to 3.5 thousand meters. A large part of it has been declared a protected nature reserve by UNESCO, but you can ski on the glacier for a large part of the year.

When looking for a wonderful place to stay, go check out El Lodge. Perched at more than 2,000 metres above sea level in the Sierra Nevada National Park, El Lodge has quickly turned into a sumptuous, cosy staple for both seasoned ski-goers and those looking to cuddle up fireside with the perfect après-ski scene. Its playful décor, ski-in/out deck and outdoor open-air heated pool make it the go-to refuge at just 45 minutes from Granada, a two-hour picturesque drive from the beaches of Marbella.

About Marbella

Марбелья: мифы и реалии

Миф №1. Марбелья – это «большая деревня, село».

Марбелья признана престижным мировым курортом (по аналогии с Каннами, Лазурным Берегом Франции), в котором покупают недвижимость звезды мирового значения (спортсмены, артисты, представители королевских семей, князья, арабские шейхи).

Именно здесь расположены лучшие международные колледжи, теннисные и футбольные школы. Медицинское обслуживание также на высшем европейском уровне: одни из ведущих европейских клиник по пластической хирургии, лечению диабета, клиник по похудению,- находятся в Марбелье.

Единственный в своем роде отель в Марбелье – Villa Padierna – удостоился ШЕСТОЙ звезды после многочисленных тайных проверок.

Миф №2: В Марбелье очень жаркое и душное лето.

Испания – южная страна, а потому практически во всех ее регионах летом достаточно жарко. И все же «жара» – понятие относительное. Испания не идет ни в какое сравнение, например, с Египтом, где в июле столбик термометра может подняться до +42°C.

В Марбелье сохраняются удивительно приятные климатические условия. В самые жаркие месяцы воздух прогревается до +32-34°C градусов. Это даже меньше, чем в центральной части России!

Жаркий июль и август в Марбелье переносить намного легче за счет свежего морского воздуха и близлежащих гор. Также совсем рядом располагаются зеленые леса с кипарисами и эвкалиптами.

Бонусом к теплому лету в Марбелье идет теплая зима. Самый холодный месяц – это февраль, со средней температурой +15°C.

Жизнь в Марбелье

Миф №3: В Марбелье очень холодное море.

Атлантические течения действительно влияют на воду побережья Коста-дель-Соль. Благодаря приливам и отливам, Гибралтару вода здесь постоянно свежая и имеет температуру +25°C. Но холодной ее назвать невозможно.

Если же вы предпочитаете, чтобы море было таким же теплым, как и воздух, вам лучше отдыхать в ОАЭ, Турции и Египте, где оно прогревается до 32°C. Однако бодрости и свежести от такого купания вы не почувствуете.

Часто температуру воды на Коста-дель-Соль сравнивают с температурой воды в Аликанте (Коста Бланка). Однако в реальности жители Аликанте часто приезжают летом на Коста-дель-Соль – чтобы охладиться.

Миф №4. На Коста дель Соль и в Марбелье высокий уровень преступности.

Коста дель Соль и Марбелья по данным статистики имеют САМЫЙ НИЗКИЙ уровень преступности во всей Испании. Марбелья – не город-миллионник, не мегаполис, куда стремятся на заработки эмигранты, где процветает торговля наркотиками и оружием, где воруют и убивают. Конечно, таковые случаи бывают. Но это скорее исключение, чем правило.

Кроме того, еще в 80-х годах 20 века власти Марбельи издали указ, в результате которого из Марбельи выселили всех неблагонадежных. С этого времени, преступность как таковая на Коста дель Соль если не отсутствует, то сведена к минимуму. Сюда приезжают, прежде всего, для того, чтобы отдохнуть в роскоши, спокойствии, комфорте. Марбелью ценят именно за безопасность (кроме, конечно, климата, экологии, великолепных пляжей и престижа).

Миф №5 Цены на недвижимость в Марбелье слишком завышены.

Курорт Марбелья имеет мировую славу. Очень часто именно этот город и муниципалитет побережья Коста дель Соль, а также Пуэрто Банус ассоциируется с престижем, статусом, гламуром и роскошью.

Соответственно, и рынок недвижимости этого региона Испании значительно отличается от других регионов более качественным строительством жилья, а также материалов, используемых при отделке. Именно в Марбелье работают лучшие архитекторы не только Андалусии, но и всей Испании. В своих работах они учитывают не только современные тенденции в строительстве, но прежде всего, они сохраняют самобытную культуру Андалусии, а также привносят элементы арабской культуры, которое оказала заметное влияние на этот регион.

Puerto Banus Marbella

Рынок недвижимости Марбельи нельзя приравнивать к общему рынку недвижимости Испании, поскольку он особый. Сюда не только приезжают для отдыха, но за покупками, ведь в Пуэрто Банусе сконцентрированы все самые лучшие и дорогие бутики модной одежды и аксессуаров. Здесь разъезжают исключительно на эксклюзивных автомобилях самых последних марок. И только здесь можно увидеть самые роскошные яхты!

Роскошные виллы в аренду в Марбелье

Luxury Estate Agency Cilo Marbella to visit Hong Kong

A leading Spanish real estate company will be visiting Hong Kong in January 2020 to speak with clients interested in investing in Spain and securing an EU visa waiver, and a path to EU citizenship.

Cilo Marbella, based in the titular southern Spanish resort city, has an investment project that offers brand new modern villas, with private swimming pools and gardens, located close to the popular luxury tourist destinations of Marbella and Puerto Banus. The villas are 450 square metres in size and priced at just under €1 million.  The company then undertakes to rent the luxury villa out when not in use by the owner and expects to generate income of approximately €50,000 pa.

According to director Jason Higgs, there is a joint attraction for Hong Kong residents. ‘We are finding the people in Hong Kong are just as interested in the EU visa waiver and path to citizenship, as they are the financial investment aspects of the project. The recent unrest has led to a pronounced spike in enquiries from Hong Kong. I think people are interested in keeping their options open at the moment’.

The Golden Visa programme has proved popular with non-EU citizens according to Mr Higgs. ‘To qualify for this there needs to be a minimum investment level of €500,000. We can offer local 70% finance but the half a million needs to be brought in from outside of Spain to qualify.’

Marbella and Puerto Banus are renowned throughout Europe for being prestigious luxury resort locations, comparable to the Cote d’Azur in France. In addition to this investment product, the company also offers a wide range of properties to suit different budgets all the way from €500,000 – €50 million.

About Cilo Marbella

Cilo Marbella was formed by two former affiliate directors with Sotheby’s International Realty, and are members of the, by invitation only, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate organisation which collectively sells over $300 billion of real estate annually. The company will be sending consultant Dr Rosarii Griffin to meet with clients on 28/29 January and anyone interested in discussing their requirements should contact her at

Жизнь в Марбелье

Жизнь в Марбелье

Здравствуйте, меня зовут Валерия! Вот уже 8 лет как проживаю в Испании, ну а если быть конкретней, в Андалусии, ну а если еще точнее, в Марбелье. Если честно, я и не догадывалась, что Марбелья пользуется таким большим спросом у соотечественников. Россиянам очень интересна Марбелья, и судя по всему многие также задумываются о переезде в Марбелью, приобретении жилья или просто отдыхе в Марбелье.

Марбелья это небольшой прибрежный городок, который Вы можете за пару дней изучить вдоль и поперек. Одной недели будет предостаточно, чтобы проникнуться атмосферой этого городка и оценить, подходит вам Марбелья или нет.

Если Вы задумываетесь не только посетить Марбелью летом, но и остаться здесь жить круглый год, то советую приехать сюда зимой, тогда Вам откроется совсем другая картина этого города. Зимой, когда основная масса туристов уезжает, жизнь в городе существенно притихает. Но не стоит расстраиваться, так как зимой здесь уютно, спокойно и очень солнечно.

В Марбелье очень хороший и мягкий климат, здесь практически нет зим, а летом отсутствует типичный андалузский зной. Также Вы сможете насладиться Средиземным морем, пляжами, цветущими садами и конечно же солнцем, которое сияет здесь 300 дней в году!

Жилье в Марбелье

Если вы все таки решили переехать в Марбелью или просто приобрести жилье на лето, или хотите инвестировать деньги в недвижимость и сдавать его в последствии.  То не надо тратить время на поиск недвижимости в интернете, напишите нам ваши пожелания и мы подберем для вас из нашей базы самые лучшие и выгодные варианты: от роскошных вилл в Сьерра-Бланка или на Золотой Миле до современных квартир и пентхаусов в центре Марбелье, или более бюджетный вариант на Новой Золотой Миле ( в окрестностях Эстепоны).

Мы предлагаем широкий выбор недвижимости для продажи на Коста дель Соль и непосредственно в Марбелье и прилегающих районах. Благодаря тесным связям с застройщиками, местными и национальными банками и владельцами, мы имеем самые лучшие объекты недвижимости для продажи.

Образование в Марбелье

Одним из наиболее важных факторов при выборе школы, является иностранный язык, поэтому большинство частных школ в Марбелье и её окрестностях предлагают билингвическую форму обучения по британской системе, что является основным фактором для поступления в международные университеты.

13 лучших образовательных центров находятся в провинции Малага. Изучение языков, высокий уровень обучения, спортивные комплексы, дополнительные образовательные мероприятия – являются основными показателями для выбора родителей.

Малага вышла на третье место после Мадрида и Барселоны по качеству своих образовательных центров. Семь из них находятся непосредственно в Марбелье и Сан Педро де Алькантара.

Обучение в этих школах, мягко скажу, «недешёвое», так как все школы, включая семь в Марбелье, частные.

Лучшими школами в Марбелье названы: Alboran, Aloha College, San Jose, Las Chapas, Swans International Primary School, English International College, Laude International College San Pedro, в Сан Пэдро дэ Алькантара. Родители, которые решили дать достойное образование своим чадам, должны раскошелиться. Месячный платёж, в зависимости от школы, может быть от 200 евро до 5.550 евро, некоторые платежи могут достичь до 14.000 евро за одного ребёнка.

Досуг в Марбелье

Бесчисленное количество пляжных ресторанов, так называемых chiringuitos, предлагают гастрономические меню на любой вкус.

Самые знаменитые пляжи Марбельи: Puerto Banús, Guadalmina, Linda Vista, San Pedro Alcántara, Río Verde, El Faro, La Venus, La Bajadilla, El Cable, El Pinillo и la Playa de Ártola в Cabopino.

Среди огромного выбора ресторанов города особенно хочется отметить следующие рестораны: Paco Jiménez на центральной площади la Plaza de los Naranjos, T-Bone в центре города, Messina,Takumi лучший выбор суши, знаменитый ресторан Dani García Bibo в отеле Puente Romano.

Так же не стоит забывать еще об одном виде досуга очень популярном среди жителей побережья, это игра в гольф. Знаменитые гольф – клубы Марбельи, такие как Los Naranjos Golf Club, Las Brisas Country Club, Aloha Golf Club рядом с Puerto Banús, Rio Real Golf Club, Santa Clara Golf Club расположены в лучших районах города.

Ночная жизнь в Марбелье всегда очень популярна среди туристов города. Одним из значимых событий является летний музыкальный фестиваль Starlite с участием многих знаменитых международных артистов и музыкантов, а также программа класса люкс в ночных  клубах Olivia Valere и Suit в Puente Romano, Finca Besaya, пабы и бары старого города Марбельи, такие, как el Estrecho, La Polaca или el Palique, а так же бары в Puerto Banús: Sinatra´s или La Comedia.


Валерия выпускница Государственного университета в России, где она изычала Современные языки. Она свободно говорит на русском, Испанском и английском языках. До переезда в Испанию в 2012 она работала в России и Англии в качестве переводчика и преподавателя. С момента вступления в Сило Marbella в 2013 она приобрела прочный опыт на местном рынке недвижимости, и доказала свою ценность как умелый посредник по продаже и аренде недвижимости.

Best Clubs in Marbella & Puerto Banus

Extravagance is perhaps the best word for the nightlife in Marbella. The clubs are big, bigger, biggest and of a very luxurious level. Expensive bottles of champagne and v.i.p. tables are daily necessities. You even have the chance to spot international celebrities, because they are welcome guests in this coastal town. Immerse yourself in Marbella’s vibrant nightlife and visit these spectacular clubs. A great night is guaranteed!

Please note that many of these clubs are not open all year round. On this page you will find the website of each club, here you can find out when the next parties will be!


Nikki Beach, the chain of luxury beach clubs around the world (from Miami to Bali) also has a branch in Marbella. And not just an establishment, the beach club is located on a pearly white beach and has a swimming pool where you as a prince or princess can relax on one of the v.i.p. beds. With a v.i.p. terrace is the luxurious feeling complete. You are certainly not shy of a snack or drink, the restaurant makes the tastiest creations for you. Fun fact: dishes are served based on the locations of the other Nikki Beach clubs. For a drink, in between, you drink champagne with an oyster and for the big appetite, you can share a nice portion of sushi with your friends or go for a large variety of tapas.

Nikki beach organises the best theme parties where everything is well thought out down to the smallest details. The staff is then walking around in clothing that is appropriate to the theme in question, and the club’s furnishings are also directly focused on the theme. There is even a Dutch Party, with Dutch snacks, drinks and outfits. Nikki Beach brings food, parties, music and fashion together and it’s one of those places you can’t miss out on when you’re in Marbella!

Nikki Beach is open from 30 April to 4 October.

With a capacity of more than 1000 people, Olivia Valere is justifiably large. It is a club with a lot of allure and the international celebrities feel that too. Names like Kate Moss, Mariah Carey and Bruce Willis have already danced here, so chances are you’ll run into a celebrity yourself.

There’s nothing wrong with the DJs playing in Olivia Valere. Think of Bob Sinclar and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano who can easily get the whole venue with them. Extra special is your Olivia Valere experience with an evening in the v.i.p. room right behind the dj booth! While dancing you will discover that the appearance of the club leaves nothing to be desired. There are nice benches where you can sit down if your feet really don’t want to. And if you look around you, you will see that everything is decorated with atmosphere, think of beautiful Buddha statues, glistening lanterns and details of gold and wood.

But there is more: Olivia Valere is not only a club, with an accompanying restaurant (Babilonia) and lounge/sushi restaurant (Karen Valere) it is a whole nightlife experience. Babilonia is a restaurant with an international cuisine and a super cool appearance. The entrance is a medieval-looking drawbridge and there are old olive trees in the patio of the restaurant. At Karen Valere you can start your evening in the lounge with a drink, but you can also enjoy a good portion of sushi. Please note that Karen Valere is only open from 22:00.

Imagine… it’s a radiant summer’s day and you’re lying by a large pool on a luxurious sunbed. Dreams come true at Ocean Club located in Puerto Banús, the most famous port of Marbella.

During the day you look out over the blue waters of the (salt water) swimming pool and the Mediterranean Sea. You can enjoy lunch from the extensive lunch menu and have a cocktail with it. In addition to the standard cocktails, you’ll also find a wide range of special cocktails. The classic mojito, for example, has seven different jackets, including a black mojito with black berries.

In the evening and at night, the club transforms into a real fancy spot where great parties are held. There is the White & Silver Opening Party with dancers, DJs, musicians, fireworks and entertainers. Quite a spectacle!

Luxurious Restaurants

Walking in the luxury of Marbella you might also want to stay in this atmosphere during lunch or dinner. Enjoy culinary delights that you won’t be able to taste and try at home, but which are definitely worth it! In Marbella, there are a number of luxury restaurants where this is possible and where some even dishes designed by a star chef are served. And who knows, you might be so comfortable at the beach and you’d like to go out for a luxurious meal close to that beach, it’s all possible! On this page you will find an overview of good luxury restaurants with the atmosphere in Marbella that complete your holiday or day out to this seaside resort!


In the luxurious Puente Romano resort, you’ll find a whole range of restaurants, but you’ll also find the star restaurant of Dani García, with no less than two Michelin stars. The concept: an innovative gastronomic experience where the latest cooking techniques are applied to traditional Andalusian dishes. Dani García is not just any chef; he is the largest Andalusian chef in terms of fame in the world. He is very creative and has a lot of international experience that he likes to include in his dishes. It is not for nothing that he won the Andalusian gastronomy prize in 2015. Try the tasting menu “Once Upon a Time” where both cold and hot dishes are discussed and where the texture of the food and opposite tastes are played with. You’ll be truly amazed by their creativity at Dani García and you’ll experience Andalusian cuisine in a completely different way.

In the same Puente Romano is also Bibo, which can be seen as the little sister of the Daní García restaurant. The atmosphere is just a bit more informal and you can eat delicious tapas. The restaurants have four very different rooms, namely the terrace with lots of sunshine, “Grandma’s table” which is excellent for dining with friends and family, an oyster bar where you can eat raw oysters and a cocktail bar for really special cocktails. This way you have a cocktail that you think is noodles, but it’s really a cocktail.

Opening hours Dani García Restaurante
Di – Sat from 13:30-15:30 (lunch) and from 19:30-22:30 (dinner)

Opening hours Bibo
Monday to Sunday from 12:30-16:00 (lunch) and from 19:30 – 00:00 (dinner and cocktails).

Bulevar Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe

Imagine, you’ve been at a super relaxed beach club all day and you’re looking forward to a good dinner. At La Sala by the Sea, you will be fine. It is really luxurious and you can relax on the finest beds by the pool or on the beach. The style is a bit Asian with Buddha statues, dark wooden details, thatched roofs and canopy beds with white cloths. It is even possible to have massages from shiatsu to Thai massages.

As you read, it is already a paradise during the day, but in the evening La Sala by the Sea transforms into a place full of allure with flickering lights and dishes that are presented as paintings so beautiful. Just like the decor, the food is clearly Asian inspired and a recommended appetizer is, therefore, the Thai toast with shrimp, Thai herbs and with a selection of different dip sauces. As the main course you can go for a traditional Pad Thai, noodles with chicken or prawns. Are you a real champagne lover? Take a glass from the collection that is hard to choose when eating. From a Don Perignon to a more exclusive Ace or Spade rosé champagne, it’s entirely up to you what you choose. Nice fact: famous people regularly come here long to spend their day, including Sylvie Meis.

Avenida José Banús
29660 Marbella


Located in the old town of Marbella is Tempora, a restaurant that rightly belongs in this list. Starting with the decor: it’s hip, but not too much. There is a good balance between sleek, industrial and warm, the perfect ingredients for an interior where you will look your eyes out.

Tempora stands for a number of values, including seasonal, creativity and passion. This is certainly noticeable in the food and especially the layout of the dishes shows a lot of creativity and passion. The dishes are all very beautifully made and there are many colorful ingredients which make them look really cheerful. In the kitchen, local ingredients are used and you will also find a lot of fruit. For example, the sea bass carpaccio is marinated in lime and when you order shrimp, you get them served on apple rings. And these are just the starters, with the main courses you have to think of high quality meat and fish. We recommend the duck with beansprouts, bamboo shoots, fried dough and a plum sauce. As you can see, here too the fruity aspect of the dishes comes back to the fore.
Be sure to take a look at the dessert menu, because what a variety of desserts you normally do not easily find anywhere. A passion fruit mousse with white chocolate ice cream or a lime sorbet with cava or vodka are for the real dessert lover really paradise level.

Opening hours
Mom up to and including 18:30-00:00

Calle Tetuan 9

But it is especially in the evening when the glass allows the light and colors to interact with the external elements, making this contemporary home shine like a jewel.

Luxury Getaway to Puerto Banus – How to make the most of it

Puerto Banús is one of the most exclusive places in Europe and also of the whole world. It is located about six kilometres from the centre of Marbella, in Nueva Andalucía and next to San Pedro de Alcántara.

Discover the History of Puerto Banus

For example, did you know that the full name is Puerto de José Banús? José Banús was the main developer of all the tourist and residential complexes on the Costa del Sol. The port of Marbella was probably his most ambitious project and that is why he gave his name to this port as if he wanted to leave a legacy.

José Banús worked side by side with the architect Noldi Schreck, known for his design and participation in Beverly Hills. Both decided that the port would be the perfect combination of Andalusian culture, with a certain memory of the nearby fishing ports, but with a touch of sophistry and elegance to turn it into a luxurious marina.

The complex was officially opened in 1970 and immediately became the largest entertainment center on the Costa del Sol, attracting tourists worldwide. The port has been rewarded several times with numerous awards such as the “Gold Mercury Internacional” for promoting the area economically and culturally as well as for promoting social cooperation. Or the “Medalla de oro” (Gold Medal) for Tourist Merit in 1975.

Puerto Banus Marbella

Visit the luxurious Marina

Most of Puerto Banús’ money can be found in the marina – this is where the most luxurious yachts and boats in the Mediterranean are moored. A stroll through the harbor is an excellent start to the day – so you can see not only the boats but also the owners, who you won’t see getting in a ‘regular car’ normally. Of course, it is not possible to go to your luxury yacht with an ordinary car, so this is your chance to see the most exclusive cars while enjoying a drink on one of the terraces – and above all hear them!

Go shopping!

Puerto Banús is not only a marina with breathtaking sailing boats and luxury pleasure yachts. It is also one of the most important reference points in the world of fashion. Going shopping in Puerto Banús means you’ll find boutiques from the major Italian and French fashion houses. It seems like a day of shopping in Milan for example. What designers can you find in Puerto Banús? The main ones from around the world like Gucci, Versace, Carolina Herrera, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, La Perla and many more. If you like shopping, Puerto Banús will not only meet your expectations but also exceed them.

Fine dining

A Luxury Getaway to Puerto Banus is not complete without experiencing the fine cuisine that Puerto Banus offers. Puerto Banus has plenty of restaurants to choose from, mainly located around the marina, offering a fantastic location to enjoy your meal whilst looking out over the Mediterranean and admiring the luxury yachts. A quick top five of restaurants for the good gourmet.

  1. Los Bandidos – Front line of the world-famous Puerto Banús in Marbella for over 31 years, Restaurante Los Bandidos offers innovative classic cuisine in elegant casual surroundings.
  2. El Gran Gatsby – El Gran Gatsby (‘The Great Gatsby’) possesses a privileged and unique position in the emblematic Tower of the Military Government in Puerto Banús.
  3. Dani García – Elegant complex with Andalusian style, in a magnificent subtropical garden that gives it privacy. The guest rooms are bungalow-style, spacious and very comfortable. Its restaurant, Roberto, decorated with lots of wood, offers Italian-style cuisine.
  4. Breathe – A multifaceted gastronomic concept dedicated to connecting people, nature and fresh-thinking gastronomy.
  5. La Sala – Since opening in 2010, La Sala has fast become the place to be seen in Puerto Banus! The ultimate social and dining experience, La Sala has many different areas where you can eat, drink and reconnect with friends.

Go see Antonio Banderas! (sort of..)

Between the marina and El Corte Inglés is the Plaza Antonio Banderas. This square is indeed named after the world-famous actor who was born in Málaga and is the pride of the region.

Go for a walk (we promise you won’t be bored)

Now that you’ve explored the port and after a day of shopping, it’s time to enjoy a walk along the Avenida de Julio Iglesias. There you will find the famous statue “La Victoria”. If you ask in the neighbourhood, they certainly know it under the name “the Russian statue” because according to legend, the statue (designed by the Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli) was donated by the Mayor of Moscow to Marbella. There are more examples of culture to be found in Puerto Banús. There is the Paseo de la Fama Puerto Banús, a kind of Walk of Fame of Puerto Banús, which is dedicated to the most important people who have helped put the area on the map. Another cultural example that can be found in Puerto Banús is the statue “Rinoceronte Vestido Con Puntillas”, the rhino dressed in lace, which was placed there in 2004 and made by famous painter Salvador Dalí. The artist designed the sculpture after his film “La Aventura Prodigiosa de la Encajera y el Rinoceronte” which was released in 1954 and inspired the sculpture of 1956.

A Luxurious day out on the beach

Puerto Banús’ beach is also called Rio Verde Grande beach because it is close to the river delta. The beach is an area of 1.5 kilometres long and 40 meters wide where the waves calmly come ashore.
Due to the slow slope of the beach and the many excellent facilities, it is popular among celebrities, families and, couples. The sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, toilets and other facilities offer everything you could possibly need during your luxury day out on the beach. If you are hungry, there are several restaurants and luxury beach bars on the beach itself where you can enjoy a snack and a drink.

Two Marbella Luxury Rental Villas Announce Winter Rates Discount

Two of Marbella’s leading rental villas have simultaneously announced a rate cut for the winter 2019/2020 season valid from November through to March inclusive.

Villa El Greco and Villa Dominguez, based in Mijas Costa and Marbella’s Golden Mile respectively, have announced cuts of over 20% plus complimentary massage and beauty services in order to boost sales during the traditionally quiet winter months.

‘These are two of the finest properties in Marbella, said Cilo Marbella director,  Jason Higgs. ‘ They have a combined value of about €50 million and the fact that you can now rent them for as little as €21.000 per week represents extraordinary value. For a large party that can work out at just over €1.000 per week each’. Villa El Greco is a 9 bedroom beachfront estate with private tennis court, while Villa Dominguez is an uber-luxury 6 bedroom villa located in the prestigious Cascade de Camojan area of the Golden Mile.

Villa El Greco – Mijas Costa. 9 Bedrooms, 9 Bathrooms, 2321 m²

Villa El Greco is an extraordinary waterfront estate located on Mijas Costa approximately 20 minutes from Marbella.
El Greco is, without doubt, one of the finest beachfront homes in southern Spain. The property is approached via a private drive with water features, giving an indication of the grandeur that awaits inside.
Decorated in the classical European style and evoking a bygone era of elegance

Villa Dominguez – Marbella, Golden Mile. 6 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, 2490 m²

Built in 2010 to the most demanding of standards, this contemporary villa has the space and amenities more usually associated with a luxury hotel rather than a private residence.

The best New Build Investments Selection Costa del Sol

The decision to invest in real estate is made quickly when you are looking for a stable and profitable investment. Due to the low-interest rates and pitiful savings income, the interest in real estate has even increased phenomenally.


Costa del Sol Luxury property Investments popular in Europe

Modern-day construction on the Costa del Sol is not only qualitatively much more competitive as before, but it is also much better designed, maintained and many new projects include luxury communal services. As a result, new developments in Marbella and Estepona come at much higher prices’, than in the recent past.

Research by CBRE, an international real estate organisation headquartered in Los Angeles (formerly CB Richard Ellis), points out that in the years before the crisis, construction was mainly for speculative purposes, and one of the consequences of this was that the quality and location of the construction was not taken very seriously. Moreover, the target group came from the average market and did not have excessive spending.

The average budget of today’s typical client buying ‘luxury’ property on the Costa del Sol is between €500,000 and €1 million.

Best property investment in Marbella, Costa del Sol

Brand new designer villas just €495.000. Self- financing with strong rental income.

These modern and contemporary style villas are conceived to enjoy an open, bright and fully integrated ambiance together with nature. The villas are distributed on 2 levels, all with 3 bedrooms and their individual bathrooms.

5 Reasons to invest in New Build Luxury Real Estate

  1. Better return on new construction
    The efficiency of a new building is convincing time and time again. After all, as an investor in a brand new building, you do not have to expect and pay for major renovations. On the other hand, the efficiency of an existing building is considerably reduced by this important and confusing additional cost. By investing in new buildings, you do not have to worry about possible defects or unforeseen costs. Hiring out is easy and provides interesting rental income (see below). If you resell after x-number of years, you will also get a much better price for your still relatively new apartment. Brody’s experienced staff will help you maximise your return.
  2. Higher rental income for energy-efficient new buildings
    This is an excellent rental argument: the energy efficiency of your new apartment or luxury villa. Your prospective tenants can thus save on their monthly costs (and do not experience any noise pollution thanks to the good insulation). They are willing to pay you a good rent for this. When you build a new building, you invest in an energy-efficient apartment that is ready for rent, with a brand new boiler, insulation and roof.
  3. Modern architecture with a well-thought-out layout
    Candidate tenants are attracted by the modern look of your real estate investment. They appreciate the architecture with large windows. Once inside, the well-thought-out layout of your new apartment impresses them, as do the high-quality workmanship and all the modern comforts.
  4. Comfort and fresh look of new construction convince tenants
    Nowadays, tenants make relatively high demands on their rental apartments or houses. Not only in terms of energy efficiency. Tenants want a fresh, new apartment with lots of light and equipped with every comfort.Smart investors take into account the requirements of the rental market and consciously opt for new construction when investing in real estate.
  5. In the Marbella-Nueva Andalucía and Benahavís zone, buyers of (luxury) new houses (single-family format) are now paying 6,000 euros per square metre. This is much more expensive than for similar projects elsewhere along the coast. In the area Fuengirola-Reserva del Higueron (on the border with Benalmádena) new build apartments are valued over 4,000 euros per square meter. In La Cala de Mijas, prices are slightly lower, around 3,000 euros.

Why you should buy New Build on the Costa del Sol

However, this is partly driven by the requirements of the current buyers has changed considerably. The average buyer of new buildings on the Costa del Sol now has a well-filled wallet and comes from abroad. He doesn’t have a specific place in mind, but wants a high quality product in every area. And that means that builders have moved away from the ‘Mediterranean village’ as an architectural style and are increasingly moving towards modern designs with straight lines, large windows and high quality building materials.

The study also points out that the Costa del Sol is increasingly becoming an exclusive and luxurious destination. This trend means that housing is less accessible to the general public. According to CBRE’s experts, the current real estate market is an opportunity for the Costa del Sol destination and good news for the province of Málaga. The Costa del Sol is positioning itself as a more exclusive, quality destination whose clients have a better perception than other sun-sea-beach destinations in Spain. Something that goes hand in hand with improved infrastructure and commercial and leisure services.

The demand for modern new homes on the Costa del Sol is particularly high among Norwegians, Finns and Swedes. Northern customers are customers who are used to other information, who want to buy when projects are completed. Moreover, they want to know the promoter and the builder and are focused on one particular thing: quality. This set of requirements is now reflected in good practice in the real estate sector and in the fact that things are being handled better than they were before. Besides people from Scandinavia, many buyers of newly built properties in and around Marbella are from the Netherlands and Belgium.

4. Sales continue to grow

According to the investigation, it is a fact that sales continue to grow and that the rate of increase is in line with the number of products being promoted. This conclusion is also in line with official statistics which indicate that both sales of new-build projects and the second-hand market continue to increase on an annual basis in the main coastal municipalities. Overall, the increase is 16%, but the fastest growing places along the coast are Benahavís and Manilva, with annual growth of almost 40%.
