“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”
The Andalusian city of Marbella is one of the most visited tourist spots in Spain and with good reason. It is a place where you can mingle with the rich and famous one minute, meet the locals over lunch and then relax on one of the many beautiful beaches. Although this beautiful town attracts many tourists, it is a relatively small City with roughly 140,000 people living in Marbella.
Marbella boasts, great weather, a vibrant nightlife, excellent golf and plenty of Michelin starred restaurants, it is a beautiful and diverse city and this is why many expats call Marbella home.

Puerto Banus is a marina located a few kilometres west of Marbella and it is a must to visit during your stay.
It offers a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous. The Marina is full of super yachts and you can see many expensive luxury and sports cars pass by. The shopping boasts luxury brands like D&G, Louis Vuitton and HERMÈS to name a few.
At night Puerto Banus turns into a playground for the rich and famous with a busy nightlife and a mixture of restaurants, bars and clubs and you can often bump into one of your favourite football stars during the off season.
Marbella Old Town
Marbella Old Town was one of my favourite places to take a stroll around, it is simply beautiful! With it’s narrow streets and white buildings you are treated to beautiful colour with flowered balconies and stylish boutiques.
If you are looking for a bite to eat you can enjoy some traditional Spanish food in one of the many restaurants located in the square, it really is a place to watch the world go by.
