Buying Property in Marbella

by | May 26, 2017 | Property Costa del Sol

One of the most famous names in Spain. Marbella conjures up images of sports cars, lavish elegance, sun soaked beaches and a life of luxury. Although this is partly true, Marbella is also a town with a community feel. It still has its traditional local markets, an Old Town with amazing curving streets that reveal beautiful squares filled with the scent of orange blossoms, and a mix of cosmopolitan nationalities.

Marbella has a micro-climate that means it has wonderful temperatures all year round: 300 days of sunshine a year. Located on its western border is the world-famous marina: Puerto Banus. Home to stunning boats of all kinds, super cars decorating the wharfs and the beautiful people dressed in all the latest fashions. Marbella has it all: elegant fashionable areas with beautiful villas, luxury apartments blocks next to the sea, local town houses among the resident population and the mega homes of the rich and famous nestled in the hills above Marbella.

Marbella is not just the town centre, the area of Marbella stretches over 20 km, from the stunning Cabopino in the east to the bustling San Pedro in the west, with many spectacular golf courses along its length. In between you will find every type of property that a buyer could wish for: at all types of budgets. Apartments here range from €175,000 for a 2 bedroom in a quiet area out of the centre, to €300,000 in one of the closer areas to the centre, to million euro options that over look the beachfront and are walking distance to the famous boutiques and world-class restaurants that are prevalent in Marbella's centre.

Some of the best areas are located just above Marbella, at the beginnings of the hills. Sierra Blanca with its mix of traditional style villas, super modern houses and apartment blocks where a lot of the professionals living and working in Marbella have their homes. Cascada de Camojan: home to beautiful houses and villas in its tranquil tree-lined avenues. La Virginia: one of Marbella's oldest areas, where traditional rustic style homes covered with ivy and bougainvillea are to be found.

Further up is the luxury community of La Zagaleta, here you will find stunning villas on extended plots of land. Gated, with its own security, La Zagaleta has homes for the worlds rich and famous. Marbella Property Consultants know all the areas, which areas will suit what person and with over 30 years of experience on the coast can show you all the that Marbella has to offer.
