Marbella, a town for all seasons

Share Pia Arrieta | Mar 7 2016

Marbella is one of those rare towns—a holiday resort that has an all year round season. Sure, the summer months are the busiest time of year but, unlike many other resort towns, the shutters don’t go up when the kids return to school. This means that people fortunate enough to own a villa or apartment in Marbella are living in a vibrant community with plenty to see and do whatever the time of year.

Marbella, town for all seasons

The 320 days of sunshine a year and mild winter climate that Marbella enjoys are a major reason for this, making it possible to live an outdoor lifestyle whatever the month. This also explains the Costa del Sol’s booming golf industry—one that ensures an influx of customers not just to the 60 or so courses in the region, but to hotels, privately owned holiday apartments, restaurants and bars—and so effectively extending the tourism season through the autumn to the spring months.

Marbella winter break

Mid-winter is also a great time to visit Marbella—especially from chilly Northern Europe—with a stroll on the seafront promenade or along one of the town’s many beaches without the need to wrap up as if on a visit to the arctic, a very real attraction.

The evenings are a treat too; Marbella offers a range of cuisines in restaurants that rival some of the best in Europe. Food lovers are spoiled for choice, from Dani García’s two Michelin starred eatery at the Puente Romano Resort’s Plaza Village on the Golden Mile to the fine selection of up-market restaurants to be found on the quayside at the luxurious Puerto Banús marina.

Live entertainment in Marbella

Your meal is not the end of the evening either, thanks to a lively social scene in the many bars and clubs of Marbella. The latter range from pubs and cafés to trendy nightclubs and sophisticated members’ clubs, contributing to a very diverse social scene.

The run up to Christmas always offers a great many events to keep visitors and residents entertained. The most exclusive are centred around the iconic venues of the Golden Mile—particularly at the Puente Romano and the Marbella Club hotels. They are among the most exclusive spots in Marbella, where the chance to rub shoulders with the rich and famous is always on the menu.

For those looking to enjoy the Marbella lifestyle, Diana Morales Properties has a fine selection of villas and apartments for sale on the Golden Mile and other sought after areas of the town.
