The Costa del Sol region
Southern Spain enjoys one of the best climates in Europe with virtually guaranteed sunshine from June to September and warm temperatures and long sunny days possible at almost any time throughout the year. The history and culture of Andalucia are evident throughout the region and a visit to at least one of the historic cities of Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba is highly recommended as is a visit to one of the beautiful white hilltop villages to be found just a short drive from the coast.
Closer to home, Marbella's old town (15 minutes by car or taxi), centred around the famous Orange Square is enchanting with an abundance of lovely restaurants and bars and excellent shopping available. A pleasant stroll along the Paseo Maritimo leads on towards Puerto Banus, famous for the exclusive super yachts moored in the marina and the designer shops and restaurants located on the sea front.
The villa is a few minutes drive (30 minute walk) from some of the best beaches in Marbella with excellent beach restaurants open year round. Behind the villa it is possible to walk in the hills and enjoy spectacular views of the sea and mountains.
Within 3km is the pretty marina of Cabopino or the up market residential area of Elviria. Both offer a fantastic range of bars and high quality restaurants as well as access to excellent beaches. Watersports are available at Elviria during the summer months and boat hire is possible at Cabopino.
