In our previous blog we talked about the Golden Mile that visitors to Marbella know and first encounter: the elegant six-kilometre long avenue that links Marbella town with cosmopolitan Puerto Banús marina. Here you will find parks and exclusive eateries, hotels, boutiques and galleries extending on both sides of the road, flanked by luxurious villas and beachside apartment complexes on the frontline beach.
The Golden Mile is famous as Marbella’s most illustrious address, not just because it is home to many of the most gorgeous properties in the region, but also because of the pedigree associated with this location and the legendary Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels that first made it internationally famous.
Magna Marbella is one of the most noteworthy luxury complexes in the Marbella area, and one in which Marbella Hills Homes has a great deal of expertise. We know this gated community of luxurious Marbella apartments, penthouses and garden apartments well, and have helped many clients find a lovely holiday home or fulltime residence here.
If you thought that there’s less activity on the Costa del Sol because of Covid you’d be wrong. Just as there are still movies and fashion collections being released, so there is selection of exciting new developments in Marbella and surroundings that answers the latest requirements and preferences of today’s buyers.
Enough said about 2020 and how Covid has impacted society, the economy and the real estate market, but what does 2021 hold in store for us in Marbella? As we enter the year, we see the markets have found a new indicator – measuring as they do the rate of progress in the drive to vaccinate entire populations, and rating companies and countries accordingly.
As we approached a new decade, the Costa del Sol’s love affair with sleek white modern architectural styles began to evolve. After almost ten years of avant-garde cubist domination, occasionally accompanied with minimalist colour tones and interior décor, a softening of lines began to enter the scene. Driven by feedback from buyers, Marbella architects began to return to some classic Mediterranean and Andalusian elements by incorporating sloping rooflines, more natural materials and sometimes even traditional rooftiles.
