Marbella – the jet-set location of the Costa del Sol, the place to be seen, the stuff of movie stars and millionaires. Between the Mediterranean Sea and the foothills of the Sierra Blanca, Marbella covers an area of 117 square kilometres. Many modern new developments in the area mean there’s a great deal of high quality self-catering holiday accommodation available. It boasts a luxury marina full of private yachts, super cars, fine alfresco dining, open-air quayside bars and expensive designer boutiques.

The nightlife is second to none, with top-notch bars and acts. If the daytime is more your thing, then there are plenty of trendy beach bars for you to hang out and rub shoulders with the celebrities that frequent them.

But Marbella is not just about fame and fortune. Scattered around the town are beautifully maintained, mature parks bursting with Mediterranean flora. The Parque La Alameda is just outside the centre of town and offers shade and tranquillity with its impressive fountain and tiled benches. From here you can step across the road and full under the charm of the Old Town with its narrow cobbled streets, artisan shops and the ever popular “Plaza de los Naranjos”, or Orange Square, where you can find quality cafés and restaurants.

The larger Parque de La Constitucion is situated in the centre of town and along with the beautiful tropical plants and paved walkways, houses a amphitheatre which during the summer months hosts many concerts and plays.

Choose a self-catering holiday villa or apartment in Marbella and you will have a holiday that you will remember always.
