When you buy a home you get much more than a property alone. With it come the accompanying location and lifestyle, and in the case of Marbella that means sun, sea, socialising and an outdoor lifestyle that is the envy of most of Europe. Marbella is known for its luxurious homes, its glamorous yacht harbours and its celebrity visitors, but what brings people here is above all the quality of life this sunniest corner of Europe offers. A beautiful seaside setting surrounded by lush green valleys provides the basis for a lifestyle that builds on the rich Andalusian culture and easygoing approach to life. Here life is lived outdoors, sunbathing, shopping, socialising and partaking in a vibrant café society. People entertain at home or attend the many cocktail parties, fashion shows, art exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events. Days spent at beach clubs or on golf courses are followed by glamorous gala dinners or visits to Marbella’s many fine dining restaurants and trendy nightclubs, while children are free to enjoy the kind of healthy childhood that includes sports, nature and interacting with people of many different nationalities and backgrounds. Cosmopolitan by nature, Marbella is at the heart of a region that also offers a broad choice of water sports, horse racing, motor racing, football, tennis tournaments, shopping, museums, gastronomy and the hiking, skiing and adventure sports of the mountain ranges just inland. Add some of Europe’s most exotic and beautiful cities on your doorstep, and it isn’t hard to see why Europe’s sunniest spot is also one of its most sought-after.
