Marbella Property Insight – building land

When analysing the property market on the Costa del Sol, we tend to focus on the homes themselves, along with consumer and supply trends, but one of the key factors not to be overlooked in any real estate industry is land – its availability and suitability. To explore this in greater detail we asked José Carlos Leon, founder and CEO of Nvoga, and company Sales Director Thomas Graham to give us the...

La Zagaleta, Marbella’s emerging ‘super segment’

If ever you needed proof that the top segment of the Marbella real estate market is in fine health, Covid or no, just look at the figures for the first quarter of 2021. They make for interesting reading, reflecting a record quarter in revenue terms. Closer inspection of the transactions made shows that the results were achieved not so much through quantity as through quality, with super-exclusive La...

Not only does this apply when instructing only the best, most reliable and well-informed property agents, but also trust-worthy lawyers and if...

Marbella East – space, beaches, views and exclusivity

Perhaps not as well-known as the central and western parts of Marbella, the eastern part of Marbella is, however, every bit as good.

In between are over 20 kilometres of the best sandy beaches on the Costa del Sol, the...

The Golden Mile – Marbella’s ultimate luxury address

The Golden Mile is where the story of Marbella really began, for it was here that it evolved as an international jet-set destination from the 1950s onwards. The creation of the legendary Marbella Club Hotel by Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, the man who was instrumental in placing this area before an international luxury clientele, formed the catalyst, for this stylishly glamorous venue drew aristocrats,...

Why it’s called the New Golden Mile

The New Golden Mile, which describes the coastal area between San Pedro Alcántara and Estepona, has so many outstanding features of its own that it became too tempting not to make a...

But for those in the know, Marbella town is another excellent area for property with a first-class lifestyle that offers much of the best the Costa del Sol is known for. Marbella...
