Marbella, why it’s the best place to spend confinement

No-one enjoys the prospect of enforced confinement and restricted freedom of movement, but if you do have to spend more time at home during this Covid pandemic then the Costa del Sol, and Marbella in particular, is just about the best place to be.

The reasons are many; from the low build densities and greater open spaces to the spectacular views over golf courses, mountain ranges, leafy suburbs and, of course, the Mediterranean Sea, with the famous backdrops of Gibraltar and North Africa to contemplate. Such an environment makes even a smaller property feel spacious, and if you add the warm, gentle climate and sunny days even in winter, it becomes clear why this is one of the most privileged spots in Europe.

People across the European continent are turning their backs on densely packed urban centres if they can, and looking for smaller towns, rural areas and sunny coastal spots. The Costa del Sol offers all of the above, with a truly diverse range of properties, areas and settings to choose from. Moreover, the laid-back ambience adds quality to spending extended periods of time at home, and during the day many take to the golf courses, tennis clubs and coastal pathways for exercise and fresh air.

A variety of living experiences
In the Marbella region, you can choose from a variety of living experiences, including a private villa or apartment set within subtropical gardens, many complete with their own spa, professional gym and heated indoor swimming pool. Some are located right by the beach, while others overlook golf course or find themselves within elegant gated country club communities. Either way you will be close to the amenities of Marbella yet surrounded by space and fresh air.

For those who want even more peace, privacy, space and nature around them there are more options just inland or also along more secluded sections of the coast. Head west from Estepona or just into the hills and you will find some beautiful country areas dotted with rustic properties ranging in size but generally enjoying lovely country and mountain views down to the sea.

With lots of nature and space around you, rustic homes and rural villages nearby, and also the beaches and towns such as Estepona and Marbella within a ten-minute drive, this could just be the most idyllic spot to spend time in. Contact us now for more information.
