Puerto Banus is the playground of the rich and famous. Located on Spain's Costa del Sol just west of Marbella.The Costa Del Sol/Andalucia runs from Malaga down to the southern most tip of Europe and the historic "rock".It enjoys over 300 days of sun a year and has 60 beaches, stunning mountains,glitzy Puerto Banus,expensive Marbella and traditional mountain villages.Mild temperatures join forces with the magic of Andalusia’s towns and villages, its charming harbours along with splendid countryside and the convergence of sea and breezes. These are the basic ingredients for a destination not to be missed

Sheltered and protected by the peaks of the Sierra Blanca mountain range, the winter weather and climate in Marbella/Puerto Banus is generally extremely mild, with only light clothing necessary during most winter days. Not only are Marbella's winter months quite warm but they are also fairly dry, featuring infrequent rainy weather and few overcast days.With long hot summers stretching from late March though to mid November and with Winter temperatures averaging 20 and seldom dropping below 18C it is the perfect place to enjoy long family holidays or short weekend breaks.

Whether it be barbecues in the garden,late balmy evenings sitting on the terrace enjoying a glass of Rioja,quiet strolls through quaint traditional mountain villages,designer shopping in the Port or local street markets, eating at some of the best restaurants in Spain or simply lying on one of the sun drenched beaches or by the pool, enjoying a game of golf at one of the 4 local championship golf courses, tennis or water sports the exclusive Puerto Banus El Paraiso area has it all.

Thanks to its unbeatable climate and warm year-round temperatures, the Costa del Sol is a great option to escape from the cold.On winter mornings you can choose to enjoy an outing to the heart of the countryside, play a round of golf or go shopping at one of the typical local street markets. At lunchtime, why not get your strength back with a delicious snack on the lively, sunny promenade? In the afternoon you could continue with a cultural visit and, to finish off the day, what better than the excellent night life at one of the marinas? Because on the Costa del Sol, life is just as intense in winter as it is in summertime.

Let yourself be captivated by Andalusia’s coast, where you will find a succession of unspoilt beaches and a veritable paradise for your holidays. With pleasant temperatures no matter what the season, Andalusia's outstanding beaches are a gift to any traveller.The coast of Andalusia offers you the chance to lose yourself in contemplation of its deep red sunsets and its waters, caressed by the easterly wind

Park at the top of the hill before you drive into the village. Walk down through the narrow streets and then up to the very top of the hill where the castle ruins and cemetery are and watch the vultures, kestrels and eagles. Stop at the bar on the way down and savour the panoramic views over a beer.

Benahavis

– another small Spanish town - more commercialised than Casares, but a great place to go for dinner (see restaurants).
