As the end of each year approaches we often assess many areas of our lives: our jobs, our relationships and quite frequently the location of our home. Perhaps you are approaching retirement next year, or fancy experiencing new employment in a totally different environment. Possibly 2017 was kind to you financially and you are yearning for adventure and to live life in a different part of the world. Maybe this new year is the year to consider a brand new home on the southern coast of Spain.
In 2017, property sales on the coast consolidated and it became clear that we had definitely reached the end of the crisis years. We also noted that prices were more stable and that the market price was once again the sale price.
Possibly the most favoured residential location in Europe and without doubt the most sought after address on the Costa del Sol, Marbella’s Golden Mile is an avenue that is perfectly located and literally paved with luxurious property gems. The famous street that joins Marbella to the exclusive marina of Puerto Banús is watched over on one side by the breathtaking La Concha Mountain and hemmed beautifully on the other by the Mediterranean Sea. The Golden Mile is best known, and unsurpassed in the region, for offering exemplary real estate for those looking for the epitome in luxury living.
Nueva Andalucía, a residential area of Marbella, is renowned for its Golf Valley and its selection of top class golf courses. Two of the most desirable golf clubs are Las Brisas and Los Naranjos and keen golfers are not only drawn to the quality of the course, but also to the residential properties in the area surrounding it, which also happens to be known as Las Brisas.
Elviria is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the Marbella area and is a favourite of locals and expats of all nations. Just a few minutes from the town centre, yet set in delightful pine-scented forests, it is a haven of peace and tranquillity with beautiful leafy streets leading down to some of the best beaches on the coast.
A Marbella Christmas is a little different from the classic snowy one depicted on television. Those are mostly focused on North American and Scandinavian winter scenery because to be fair they are increasingly rare in most of Northern Europe these days, but in Marbella we focus on soft, benevolent climes, sunny days and relaxed pace of life.
