Summer Holiday Rentals in Marbella Golden Mile

Louise Swan, December 2015 | Local News and Information

For a luxury summer holiday the Golden Mile is the perfect destination. After all, it put the glitter into Marbella.

The city owes much of its reputation for being the playground of the rich and famous to this exclusive stretch of impressive villas, apartments and, yes, palaces that spreads along the coast from the western edge of Marbella to Puerto Banús. This is where royalty, film stars and celebrities meet to relax and enjoy some downtime. Sandwiched between the deep blue Mediterranean and the Sierra Blanca mountains, the area enjoys a unique microclimate that takes the edge off Andalucía’s hot summer temperatures.

For many, the main attractions are the golden beaches, which are lined by some of Spain’s most luxurious examples of prime development. In keeping with the setting, the architecture is impressive too, with stylish avant-garde designs adding lustre to the natural beauty of the area. And talking luxury, this impressive five bedroom family home is available right on the beach for short term rental while this hillside villa in Sierra Blanca offers stunning sea views over the Mediterranean Sea and is just a few minutes drive to the beach.

Marbella Summer Holiday, Golden Mile Style

But if you are a Hollywood star, a beach no matter how glorious, is just not enough. That is where the Golden Mile scores a golden shot with everything a discerning millionaire could want on a luxurious holiday. To say the facilities that Marbella villas and apartments offer are impressive would be an understatement. Spas, Jacuzzis, home cinemas, sparkling pools, gyms, outdoor kitchens set in tropical gardens, you name it, the Golden Mile has it. Luxury, extravagance and opulence are the three words that spring to mind.

And you too could sample that lifestyle, as this stunning nine-bedroom villa with home cinema and a huge array of features shows. Many of the villas and apartments available for short lets in Marbella Golden Mile have every conceivable facility, often including a concierge service and private security. Some even include car hire and the option to hire helicopters, charter yachts and Lear jets and throw parties complete with chefs, waiters, barmen and entertainment.

Once settled, a visit to one of the stylish beach clubs is something most visitors make a priority, if only for the chance to spot a famous face. The Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels, both with their own beach clubs, are the foundation of the Golden Mile’s fame. These are the locations that first attracted the rich and famous to the area, with their luxury accommodation, elegant tropical gardens and first class food. And if you are looking for a special property for a short break, Callum Swan has this spectacular villa between the two on its books at present. Again, it has all the features a Hollywood star would expect.

There is no shortage of gourmet restaurants offering cuisine from all round the world, making the area the perfect destination for a food lover’s luxurious holiday. Perhaps the best known is Michelin starred chef Dani García’s splendid establishment at the Puente Romano.

If that’s not enough, the glamour, restaurants and nightlife of Puerto Banús are just a short distance away. It’s well worth a trip just to view the superyachts in the harbour, the supercars on the quayside and the ‘beautiful’ people thronging the thoroughfares.

So when it comes to luxury holidays, Marbella’s Golden Mile truly offers the golden touch.
