Marbella: Living your Best Life in 2021
What gives Marbella its lifestyle appeal? To answer this, one must first define the lifestyle in question. In Marbella’s case, it is above all a quality of life made possible by what is perhaps the sunniest climate in Europe. Place this within a beautiful setting of sea, mountain ranges and green valleys – many with golf courses running through them – and the result is something truly special. From many points along this golden coast, you can spot the shoreline curving towards Gibraltar, whose famous Rock stands as a sentinel at the point where the Mediterranean and Atlantic, Europe and Africa meet.
This scenic environment is also a highly cosmopolitan one, where like-minded people from around Europe and the world come together in pursuit of the ultimate way of life. One in which work can be combined with family life, leisure, outdoor activities, culture and an active social scene. More than ever, this is accessible for longer than just short visits, as remote working becomes increasingly viable.
A wide variety of options
The variety of Marbella lifestyle and residential options stand in direct relation to one-another, as this region offers a selection of lifestyle settings that range from beachside and downtown to frontline golf, suburban leafy residential streets, country club environments and even rustic estates in the hills near the coast. In each case, the properties reflect the setting, so that in hillside country clubs such as El Madroñal and La Zagaleta you will find luxurious villas on large plots surrounded by nature and views that run from mountain scenery down to the sea.
In residential areas, there is a choice of townhouses, villas and apartments close to amenities such as international schools and shopping, while for those who enjoy beach life and leisure activities, there are many different frontline beach properties for sale in Marbella and surrounding municipalities. Each has its own character and unique features, catering to different budgets and preferred lifestyles, with prices ranging from under €200,000 to well over €20 million.
It is exactly this variety of options and freedom to choose your own that gives Marbella its lifestyle appeal, within a setting that is both Andalusian and cosmopolitan; beachside and country; cultural and sporty – in fact, life in Marbella can be exactly what you make it.
