Marbella, the ultimate lifestyle destination?

Fath-Zhar Benkiran, January 2022 | Local News and Information

Marbella is well-established as one of Europe’s – and indeed the world’s – top lifestyle destinations, but usually this is viewed through the viewfinder of summer, and as a result the town and the coastline it forms part of is forever associated with visions of beaches, yachts, poolside parties and warm sultry evenings. But there’s another side to this region, and another reason why it is perhaps the number one lifestyle destination in Europe – and the reason why it is so enduringly popular among visitors and homebuyers across the generations.

Golf lifestyle in Marbella

You see, Marbella’s unique appeal is derived not only from the way of life it offers in summer, but also very importantly thanks to the mild climate and conditions that prevail during other times of the year. In fact, it is the year-round attractiveness of life here that draws many to choose Marbella as their new second or even primary home. Where summer months focus the attention on the sea, swimming pools and other forms of cool relief, the period starting from September and running through to June is ideal for many other kinds of activities.

Marbella, more than just summer

These include racquet sports, horse riding, hiking, adventure activities, fitness and gym, biking, country and town visits, as well as simply enjoying an active outdoor and social life, as well as a healthy diet and relaxing easy-going pace. Marbella and the Costa del Sol is also a stepping stone to so many other experiences, starting with the cultural delights of nearby Málaga – just an hour away – and continues through culinary, historic and natural explorations. The surf season starts in April, just as the winter sports of the Sierra Nevada come to a close, only to resume in November.

Marbella’s is a year-round cycle quite unlike any other in Europe, but perhaps the finest aspect of all is the variety and freedom that this region offers within a fascinating and cosmopolitan setting.
