Marbella is a city and resort area on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol. The Sierra Blanca mountains are the backdrop to 27 km of sandy Mediterranean beaches, villas, hotels and golf courses. West of Marbella town, the "Golden Mile" of prestigious nightclubs and coastal estates leads to Puerto Banús marina, filled with luxury yachts, and surrounded by upmarket boutiques and bars.Marbella is one of the Mediterranean's most representative tourist venues and a top favorite for travellers. What was once a small white village of fishermen is now one of the most cosmopolitan beach resorts on the Costa del Sol in Spain.
Marbella is known to have 365 Days sunlight, even in the cold winters.

Since the massive tourism boom in the area, many a coastal town in Andalucia has become big in size, special holiday apartments for you and the family. Now, I don’t know about you, but that image hardly conjures thoughts of luxury, of exclusivity and most importantly is a far cry from “the perfect getaway”. But if you’re looking for something a little bit more exotic, something more exciting, then perhaps you should sample the life of luxury in Marbella.
