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.
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 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.
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,
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.
