November 23, 2015

Nueva Andalucía is one of the most desirable areas to live in Spain, but what is perhaps its best-kept secret is the highly exclusive La Cerquilla gated community.

Marbesa and Carib Playa: Beachside Properties in Marbella East

September 25, 2015

One of the most established areas in Marbella East is Marbesa, a peaceful seaside residential zone first developed in the 1960s.
