Famed as a playground for the rich and famous Marbella is the beating heart of the Costa Del Sol.

Born of humble origins, Marbella has grown from a jasmine-scented sleepy fishing village with less than a thousand inhabitants into a thriving cosmopolitan city of chic modernity; of fast cars and expensive yachts, of designer boutiques and restaurants housed along plush, palm-lined esplanades and boulevards.

Marbella and the surrounding region boasts a proud and distinct history dating back 3000 years to Roman settlements and over 700 years of Moor rule in the middle-ages. This rich history sits comfortably with the modern city of today and provides a unique blend of the ancient and new.  Old white walled buildings, flower laden narrow streets and the ancient city walls remain an important part of Marbella’s make-up and the old town continues to be a popular spot for visitors to the area.

At its heart, Marbella today is a haven of holiday-making, glamour and fun. It revels in its reputation to attract movie stars and millionaires at the same time as remaining one of Europe’s premier holiday destinations for families and couples, old and young.

With its glamorous buildings, clubs and restaurants alongside the natural beauty of the region; mountains, beaches and the gently lapping azure waters of the Mediterranean, Marbella has everything to offer the discerning holiday-maker. And, with its unique location between mountain and sea offering a wonderful micro-climate of not-too-hot summers and mild winters, Marbella is truly one of the world’s premier destinations all year long.
