About Marbella

For many years Marbella has been a favourite location for the rich and famous and is renowned worldwide as one of the most sophisticated and beautiful holiday destinations in Europe. It has everything to offer: beautiful beaches, mountains, fine dining, night life and even old world charm.

BEWARE, the cosmopolitan atmosphere can be intoxicating and can only be compared with other international resorts such as St Tropez and Monte Carlo

Marbella enjoys a wonderful climate thanks to the surrounding mountains which ensures temperatures are cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than other areas of the Costa Del Sol, making this an ideal all year round destination for all ages.
