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 spacious entrance lobby is furnished with original works of art and gives one a taste of the refined luxury and elegance that defines Villa Dominguez.

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.

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%.

Marbella Villa Rentals: A Luxury Holiday with a Private Pool

Marbella Luxury Villa Rentals – The sun, the beach… the glamour. Marbella is one of the most popular luxury holiday destinations in the world. The ideal place to spend your well-deserved vacation and enjoy the best climate in Europe with your family and friends.

Marbella (150,000 inhabitants) has been known for decades as the jet-set destination of Spain. The port of Puerto Banus, the old town with the ‘Plaza de Naranjas’, the expensive brand shops and the many golf courses are popular. They attract many wealthy tourists. The Marbella way of life is a sun-drenched journey along with the finest luxury resorts, hotels, beach clubs and fine dining restaurants, such as Restaurant Dani Garcia with chef Dani García, located on the Golden Mile in Marbella.

Why Marbella?

Marbella is so desired because of the cosmopolitan lifestyle made possible by its climate, combined with its location and natural setting of beauty. The jet-set capital of the Costa is located about three hours from the main cities of Europe. But also the wealthy society of countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, The United Arab Emirates and neighbouring Arabic countries find their way to Marbella.

Marbella from start to finish

Marbella offers a lifestyle similar to the Californian model, yet in the context of European history, culture and culinary excellence. It’s a tempting blend that first drew royalties, tycoons and actors to this part of southern Spain in the early fifties, and remains to do so. Behind the coastal plain stretches its beautiful old historic centre, luxurious restaurants and vibrant nightlife. You can clearly see in the old town that the city has a whole history. Especially at Plaza de Los Naranjos, you will find many authentic buildings. The town hall from the 16th century and the Ermita de Santiago (the first Christian church in the city) are important attractions of this square. Also, make sure to take a moment to enjoy the Moorish influences of the city in the remains of a wall that surrounded the Arab city and castle.

Golden Mile

Captured between the sandy beaches and majestic mountains lies the famous Golden Mile of Marbella. Flanked by palms and sub-tropical greenery, this is where millionaires show off world’s most incredible mansions. It stretches about 2km from Puerto Banus in the west to the edge of the centre of Marbella in the east. The most prestigious of Marbella’s 5-star hotels are located here: Puente Romano and Marbella Club. Both have exceptional facilities including beach bars, spas and Mediterranean gardens. Puente Romano is also home to the famous Puente Romano Tennis Club,

Puerto Banus

If you continue your journey heading South, you arrive a few minutes later in the glamourous Marina of Puerto Banús. Besides superyachts, fast cars and trendy beach clubs, eateries and nightlife, this chic area is also known for having one of the largest concentrations of luxury brands in Europe. From Armani, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Hèrmes, Dior and Burberry, you will find all luxurious boutique shops here.

Why most Luxury Villas are for Sale in Estepona

Estepona is the place to be nowadays on the Costa del Sol. Thanks to the thriving local economy, a wide range of shops, beautiful sandy beaches, wide promenades and some of the best golf courses on the Costa del Sol

Estepona is one of the few coastal towns on the Costa del Sol with its picturesque houses that has managed to retain its character despite the increase of tourism. It is a very well cared for town, with beautiful landscaped boulevards and parks and where you will find beautiful Mediterranean trees, plants and flowers lavishly in many streets. Facilities include all price ranges, including hotels, restaurants, recreational and cultural activities, beautiful traditional houses and shops.

It also has a pleasant marina where on Saturdays a small market is held with many restaurants located directly on the market. Many street cafes and tapas bars still serve traditional Spanish delicacies and the sometimes steep, cobbled, narrow streets seem more suitable for horses than cars. You will also find modern new build houses, shops and bodegas in Estepona, all very inviting, very friendly and very cheap! Estepona is highly recommended for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of Marbella while Puerto Banus is not far away.

Why most Luxury Villas are for Sale in Estepona

There are 4 main reasons why Estepona is so popular among tourists from all over the world. Many people from Northern European countries opt for new build villas in this area. Mostly People from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Finland and France. But also wealthy people from Arabic countries find their way to Estepona. In general, Estepona’s owes its growing popularity to:

  1. The high amount of Luxury New Developments on the New Golden Mile

    The Supreme Court declared a null revision of the general plan of Urban Planning in Marbella in November 2015. As a result, many promotors and investment funds ‘moved’ their interest to nearby towns. Estepona and Cancelada are best examples. Due to the uncertainty and urban planning regulations, both towns are now at heart of new build property development.

  2. The Climate

    Estepona enjoys one of the best (micro) climates of Europe. The traditional Spanish fishing village is located in the south of Spain on the Costa del Sol in the province of Malaga. it is a perfect place to enjoy the Spanish sun, the beautiful beaches and the pleasant sea. Estepona has a Mediterranean climate. The place is sheltered from the hinterland by its location on the northern side of the Sierra Bermeja mountains. As a result, the rainfall in Estepona is very limited and the sun shines 300 days a year. The winters are warmer and softer than elsewhere in Spain, the summers hot and dry. Ideal for the beach less suitable for sightseeing. In the summer there is also long light so that one can enjoy the summer evenings for a long time. The mountain Sierra Bermeja is a beautiful nature reserve. The red mountain spreads a beautiful orange glow when the sun goes down and there are also several wild animals to admire.

  3. Local culture & Sports facilities

    The municipality promotes Estepona as the ‘garden of the Costa del Sol. According to the mayor, José María García Urbano, the city wants to, above all, to provide a pleasant environment for both its inhabitants and the tourists. The municipal budget is therefore not used for the construction of more houses, but mainly investing in the improvement of the enjoyment of life and you notice that. Even if you only visit for the day.

    Among the most prestigious recent projects are a brand-new athletics stadium in Estepona, which is officially open to the public since April 2019, and the construction of a beach pathway (La Senda Litoral), connecting Estepona to neighbouring towns, such as Marbella. This coastal path will reach all the way up to Málaga.

  4. New Golden Mile

    The New Golden Mile is without a shadow of a doubt the area where most new developments are under construction. The New Golden Mile is the stretch between San Pedro in Marbella and the East part of Estepona. It is an area that has undergone great development over the last 20 years and offers a variety of residential developments and complexes to suit all tastes and budgets. The term has also been extended to incorporate other residential areas, and sometimes locations from Guadalmina to Estepona are described as part of the New Golden Mile.

    The New Golden Mile is popular because of its central location. Estepona on one side, San Pedro de Alcántara, Puerto Banús and Marbella in the other. In the following chapters, we highlight the best new build luxury property available in this area. Read more: https://www.cilomarbella.com/future-modern-luxury-villas-golden-mile/

Future of Luxury villas (New) Golden Mile

A detached villa in Mediterranean style, built with quality materials to contemporary standards. Nowadays, the options are so diverse on the Costa del Sol. But what exactly is so unique about these modern, new build villas?

A modern villa, in our opinion, does not only consist of the outside. It is precisely the connection between the inner and outer world that is important. Therefore, we believe it is important that the design for the interior is intertwined with your outdoor living area. We have investigated the future of Luxury villas on the (New) Golden Mile.

Welcome to the Future

When we think of the house of the future, images of futuristic white houses in the ’60s Jetson’s TV show might come to mind. No matter how exciting the idea sounds, living in a high-tech futuristic apartment in the middle of space, it’s not what a house of the future means!

The house of the future is above all a smart home, designed to make our time in our home as pleasant, comfortable and safe as possible. And there is plenty of room for high-tech fun too!

Technology & Home Automation

Let’s take the first cornerstone of the modern villa, technology. Home automation is not only about the integration of technology and control in the home, but also about the service from the outside to the home. Domotics can be seen as a broader concept than placing refined stand-alone systems in a home.

Luxury villas New Golden Mile

The word is a combination of the Latin words domus (house) and robotics (remote control or monitoring). The concept has been around since the 1980s, but it has only been used for the domestic market for a few years. The first one was for the military and industrial markets.

 

Home automation is the integration of technology and services for a better quality of life and living.

 

According to estimates, 25,000 million devices will be connected to the Internet this year alone. We have reached a point where the growth of “the Internet of Things” is unstoppable. It is therefore very likely that in our future homes we will be able to control all settings and devices from our smartphones (or future tablets), wherever we are at that time. Some things are already possible even today, such as home monitoring systems without cameras or controlling your TV and heating with your smartphone.

In a way, the car is a good example: the car radio goes down when you receive a call, there are built-in navigation systems, and at the touch of a button you can switch everything off. These applications have crept into the car. Manufacturers have made cars safer and more comfortable and now the car user no longer wants to do without these applications. Homes will also be equipped with intelligence so that different applications are possible.

Interior

Interior specialists mainly predict that the world will be brought inside. People are connected to the whole world. This will largely be determined by technology, but also by the choice of (interior) products and materials. Plants will be given an important place in the interior, as will wood and other natural materials. The majority of interior designers also believe that ‘Story Telling’ – the story behind a product – will be just as important as the product itself. When that one cute side table is made by children in India, we are more likely to choose a local product made in good working conditions. Craft gets extra value, as does appreciation for the handmade products.

Where is the Costa del Golf?

Cilo Marbella’s Costa del Sol Luxury Guide

Welcome to the Luxury Property blog of Cilo Marbella. In this article, we share all the luxury hotspots on the vibrant Costa del Sol.

Marbella

Marbella is the luxury capital of the Costa del Sol. The capital of the international jet set. After Málaga, Marbella, with about 77,000 inhabitants, is the second largest city on the coast of the sun. The coveted holiday paradise is a privileged location for those who are rich, famous or important. But other holidaymakers will certainly find a good place to sleep here as well. The picturesque town center is perhaps the most beautiful and the most characteristic along the entire coast.

Where is Marbella located on the Costa del Sol?

Marbella is located on the south coast of Spain, about a half an hour drive west of Málaga. Marbella is the holiday location of the jet-set, princes, millionaires or people from the show business. The city center can be described as stylish, with beautiful boulevards, parks, and gardens, a historic center and with the most famous marina Puerto Banús, on the Mediterranean Sea, where you will find the most beautiful yachts.

The old town of Marbella is a nice place to visit, during the day and especially at night. When night falls, places like Patio de Los Naranjos are filled with terraces and later in the evening, the majority of the city can be found in one of the many bars in the area.

Stylish entertainment on the Costa

A trip through the narrow alleys (car-free) with balconies full of flower boxes will take you into the Andalusian atmosphere and make you long for a cup of coffee at one of the tables on the Plaza de Naranjos, just in front of the town hall. The square full of restaurants, cafes and shops are bordered by shady orange trees and subtropical plants.

The old town has an Arabic city wall and compact white buildings. You will find a beautiful promenade and a marina and fishing port. There are many shopping opportunities. On the many beautiful beaches are several ‘oases’ created with tropical vegetation. Lovers of nightlife are sure to find what they are looking for in this place with its numerous bars and restaurants. You will also find a number of museums (Bonsai museum, archaeological museum, engraving museum).

Costa del Sol Luxury PropertyCosta del Sol Luxury Property

In the hottest time of the year, everyone here should definitely dine at a table on the sidewalk. The beautifully lit square with its rustling fountains forms an impressive backdrop. A modern city like Marbella also has a sports harbor along the beach promenade. Here is one bar next to the next pub or pizzeria and it is the youth that sets the tone. The noise level is therefore correspondingly high.

Petrodollars determine what happens here. In Marbella, a striking number of Arab banks and brokers offer their services to financially strong clients from the Middle East. The ordinary tourist with the narrower fair will also find what they are looking for here. There are plenty of cheap bars to enjoy the atmosphere around the harbor. You can also take the children for a walk in this area because they will certainly enjoy themselves.

Euphoric Spaniards claim that Marbella is the ‘capital of tourism’. Marbella, which translates as ‘beautiful sea’, can only partially live up to these expectations for the time being. Yet Marbella remains the diamond among the pearls (Estepona, Benahavis, Cancelada) of the Costa del Sol. A colorful mix of jet set and ‘normal’ tourists provides a varied picture on the beaches, in the restaurants and discos. Here the champagne flows and there ‘Jan Modaal’ drinks his beer, looking astonished at the tiring life of the richer fellow man.

Puerto Banús: The Luxury port of Marbella

Seven kilometers westwards, in the direction of Estepona, but still in the urban area of Marbella, lies the famous and prestigious marina Puerto Banús, one of the most beautiful artificial marinas in the Mediterranean Sea. Here are millions of ships belonging to owners with millions of anchored. In Puerto Banús the super yacht ‘Nabila’ of the former millionaire Adnan Kashoggi was anchored as well.

Along the quay wall and in the second part behind it, there are numerous gastronomic businesses with all kinds of kitchens, bars, discotheques, jewelers, boutiques and other boutiques. On this pier, even the non-sailor can enjoy himself, as long as he has enough money with him. Puerto Banús is an expensive place: a meal in one of the luxurious restaurants is very expensive.

The beautiful marina Puerto Banús, with its chic yachts, trendy restaurants, and bars, acts as a magnet to visitors on the Costa del Sol. A stay on the Costa del Sol is incomplete without a visit to Puerto Banús, one of the most famous local attractions. Puerto Banús, named after its creator José Banús, dates from 1968 and was then one of the first marina projects in Spain. The result looks very attractive and is definitely worth a visit.

Puerto Banus Marbella Apartment for sale in Marbella - Puerto Banus

Against a backdrop of mountains lies a row of bright white apartment buildings around the marina, where numerous ships of all shapes and sizes, from megayachts to small fishing boats, are moored. A landmark in Banús is the Arabic-style complex of luxury apartments on the right as you enter the port. With its exuberant white marble façade and glistening battlements, it seems to have come from a film about Arab nights.

Around the marina are also several cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, and gift shops. Although these restaurants are the place to be seen, you often get better value for money in the smaller restaurants in the streets afterwards. In high season, the quayside is teeming with people who come here to watch or to be watched. In Banús you have a good chance to spot celebrities.

At night, the place is buzzing with activity as the chic restaurants, trendy piano bars, discos and nightclubs fill up with beautiful people. The tastefully executed Bebabola project is a nice, more relaxed place to enjoy a drink and the sunset. Marbella, formerly a small white fishing village, is now one of the most cosmopolitan places on the Costa del Sol.

What’s there to do in Marbella?

If you are looking for culture and entertainment in Marbella, you will find galleries, cinemas, pubs and discos, an extensive nightlife, golf courses, and Puerto Banus, the luxury marina where you can spend hours.

There are many things to do in Marbella, such as a walk from the old town and the many shopping malls for those who want to spend time shopping. Nice places to visit: The old town, the Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz Church, Ermita del Calvario, the Bonsai Museum, Museo Ralli, Villa Romana de Río Verde, Termas Romanas de Guadalmina, Basílica paleocristiana de Vega del Mar, Yacimiento fenicio de Río Real, Pecho Redondo Caves, Nagüeles Caves, Bajadilla beach, Fuerte beach, Fontanilla beach.

The weather in Marbella

Marbella is protected by the mountains of the Sierra Blanca, where the microclimate gives an annual average temperature of 18 degrees Celsius and sunny weather for almost the whole year.

Shopping in Marbella

Visitors to Marbella won’t be short of all kinds of exclusive shopping malls, designer boutiques, arts and crafts, gift shops and luxurious interior design shops. A large majority of these shops can be found around the city center, where you will also find many cafes and restaurants.

The best shopping streets in Marbella are the Avenida Ricardo Soriano and the Avenida Ramon y Cajal, an important shopping area where you will find the best shops, with well-known brands and well-known fashion boutiques. For more traditional shops and local shops, head to the old town of Marbella, where you’ll find a good selection of galleries, craft shops, and gift ideas.

Exclusive commercial centres in and around Marbella include the Centro Commercial Benabola in Puerto Banús, with designer shops and fashion shops, the elegant center commercial Marina Banús in Avenida Ramón Areces, and El Corte Ingles with a number of floors of items ranging from fashion and perfumes, to furniture and household items and a popular supermarket. Every Saturday morning a street market is held in Nueva Andalucia.

Beach clubs, beach bars Marbella

Nightlife in Marbella

Marbella’s glistening nightlife is undoubtedly excellent and very different from the rest of the also very busy seaside resorts along the Costa del Sol. Start the evening with a leisurely stroll along the promenade, with plenty of chic cafes, bars, and international restaurants or the charming Old Town of Marbella with its many tapas bars in whitewashed alleys and squares.

Puerto Banus is relatively quiet during the winter months but is brimming with nightlife during the high season. Other hotspots along the promenade and in Puerto Banús include Buddha Beach, Charleys, Desvan, Dreamers Night Club, Glam, News Cafe, Olivia Valere, Polo House, Portside Bar, Seven, Studio 10 Tibu, Vanity Marbella, lola Lounge, Oh Marbella and the Mansion Club.

Restaurants in Marbella

Fine Dining is well-represented in Marbella, but it’s very expensive. But not everything in the vicinity of Marbella are restaurants and luxury hotels. In the luxurious beach bars in Marbella, you can eat on an informal basis with a view of the sea. Some beach bars are among the luxury hotels and even have an indoor swimming pool. Also in these more informal restaurants, you can meet famous and beautiful people who want to participate in a more relaxed atmosphere.

Estepona

In the far south of Spain, on the Costa del Sol, you will find lively Estepona with more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Close to Marbella with excellent excursions to Ronda, Seville, Gibraltar, Morocco, Malaga, Granada and Casares, too many to mention. Estepona, a Spanish seaside resort with approximately 60,328 inhabitants, is a cozy town on the Costa del Sol, just outside the bustle of Torremolinos, Fuengirola, and Marbella. There is a tourist office in the center of Estepona and a new tourist office at the entrance of the harbor.

The location of the city, embedded between the sea and mountains, offers the visitor numerous opportunities for various activities. Estepona is a 45-minute drive from Málaga airport via the new motorway along the four-lane coastal road. Estepona has a total of 17 beaches including the beach “La Rada”. It is located directly opposite the picturesque center of Estepona, is three kilometers long and is the most visited. Along this beach is the beautiful promenade with not too massive apartments and many playgrounds for the children. Behind the boulevard, Estepona is still an authentic South Spanish town with picturesque streets, restaurants, terraces, bars and a lively shopping center. It is a quiet Spanish seaside resort with a friendly population.
