July 14, 2014

We expect luxury in a place like Marbella and we wish for sustainability. But are the two mutually exclusive? Or can they exist in harmony? We believe they can.

A beachside alternative, property in Estepona

June 19, 2014

We are all guilty of it. We tend to focus so much on Marbella that we often overlook its smaller sibling, Estepona. It may not have the name recognition or glamorous allure of Marbella, but situated a mere 15 minutes west along the same Mediterranean coast, Estepona offers many of the same pleasures – and at a different price level. What’s more, it is an ideal base for those who enjoy a more authentically Andalusian environment.

It is here that tango evolved out of a mix of European musical styles, the melancholy of port life and a rich South American dance tradition full of African rhythms.

Residency for investors in Spain

June 13, 2014

At the end of the day there is no clear-cut benefit differential between a newly-built home or a so-called re-sale/existing one, so much of the decision will be down to individual taste and the quality of the properties that pass before you.
