Marbella - Costa del Sol
As real estate agent in the region of Marbella and Marbella itself your life is easy. Everybody has heard of Marbella and has been there once or more often. But one thing is for sure: everybody has an opinion about it.
Often this opinion is that Marbella is only glamour and glitter, based on a picture of expensive fashionhouses and expensive cars. However this picture is mainly determined by the glamourous harbour of Puerto Banus. And Puerto Banus is indeed part of the municipality of Marbella, but is actually not part of the city of Marbella itself.
Indeed Marbella has a luxury lifestyle to offer and there are lots of trendy places to drink and dance untill early in the morning. But Marbella also has its pittoresque and authentique Old Town Center with cosy small streets and shops and little squares with lots of nice restaurants and tapasbars.
Here you can find the Iglesia de Encarnacion, a church often used for colourfull weddings, the city hall at the Plaza de Los Naranjos and the Arabic Wall.
In between the beach and the old town is the Parque de la Constitucion, a lovely shaded parque where you can sit an enjoy the shopping public to go by.
Finally don't forget that Marbella has a superb boulevard ( Paseo Maritimo) alongside the lovely white sandy beaches all the way down to Puerto Banus with its prestiguous harbour. Here you can also enjoy fantastic food and tapas in the many cosy bars and restaurants with terraces on the boulevard or on the beach.
And all of this the whole year around, thus also in wintertime because of the lovely climate.
