5 Reasons to love Marbella

Sabrina Cedron, January 2021 | CSR news and articles of interest

As a company, we don’t so much sell property as promote Marbella as a lifestyle destination with a great many wonderful properties and locations to choose from. The reason we’re so passionate about this area is because we love living and working here ourselves.

1. Setting+climate=lifestyle

A lot is said about the Costa del Sol having the best climate in Europe, but what it really means, together with a spectacular setting between mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, is quite possibly the best lifestyle in Europe and much of the world for that matter. The combination of natural beauty, views, cosmopolitan ambience, high level services and gentle climate make for year-round outdoor living with sports, socialising and a laid-back way of life.

2. Variety is the spice of life

The second reason we love about living in Marbella and its surrounding areas is the variety of lifestyle options it offers. This caters to many different tastes, but also invites you to vary yours, including sports, nature, culture, nightlife, cuisine, hedonistic shopping and beach life, as well as simply enjoying work and a relaxing, peaceful and secure family life, with great international schools and easy access to the main centres in Europe.

3. Beautiful neighbourhoods to live in

As real estate agents, we are slightly prejudiced in including homes in our list, but the properties and residential areas in Marbella and surroundings really are among the things that make it special. There is everything, from town living and frontline beach penthouses and villas, to properties overlooking the golf and homes with direct access to the course, as well as quiet residential townhouses and villas, country club environments and even rustic homes on the edge of Marbella.

4. A cosmopolitan vibe

Marbella has a lively, cosmopolitan ambience that makes it an exciting place to live and a great town to socialise with interesting people from all over the world. It’s a meeting point of likeminded spirits with fascinating backgrounds, from bankers and self-made entrepreneurs to aristocrats and celebrities. It’s one of the things that make this region so interesting and diverse.

5. A world to explore

As attractive as Marbella is, part of the enticement of living here is the fact that it is surrounded by a world of opportunities to explore. These include fine sandy Atlantic beaches and surf culture, ski slopes a little over an hour away, as well as a fantastic variety of landscapes, nature reserves, history and culture – from quaint little Andalusian villages to beautiful cities such as Málaga, Granada and Seville.
