Marbella’s 2014 Starlite Festival

The Starlite Festival organisers have announced the final acts to be headlining this year’s fantastic event and we at Altavista Property Spain are delighted to discover that Tom Jones will be performing, as well as The Beach Boys and Marbella’s own Julio Iglesias.

Welcome to Puerto Banus

You just have to take a short stroll along the front line of the marina to notice an abundance of sports cars and well-heeled types to know you are living in an enviable part of the world. But there are plenty of other reasons for wanting to move to this bustling, melting pot of cultures on the Costa del Sol. For Puerto José Banús, to use its full name, also has some of the best nightlife and fine dining in the south of Spain.

New Altavista video about buying property in Marbella

You hear so much negative information about Spain that we thought we should set the record straight. We’re the last to say everything is hunky dory, but the message brought across in the press is often simplified and one-sided. As people who have lived and worked in the Marbella area for many years we know the local economy and especially the property market very well.

Spring is here!

Also back on the cards are romantic strolls and dining alfresco, as the evenings stay warmer and lighter for longer, and we are once again confident enough to plan BBQs and outside events without fear of wet weather. When the sun comes out in Marbella, everyone springs into action preparing for the hot and exciting months ahead, and many of the buildings are given a fresh lick of paint.

Marbella – Land of Opportunity

At Altavista Property we're not just passionate about Marbella Property we're also passionate about Marbella. With the stories in the media rarely matching the reality of life in this wonderful town by the Mediterranean, we decided to make this short video to illustrate why we love Marbella. Hopefully after watching it, you will too!
