Costa del Sol Monopoly

MonopolySet_2014After quite some expectation, the Costa del Sol Monopoly board game is now available for purchase, right in time for the recent Christmas and the New Year, with a fun and informative approach to this beautiful region.

Monopoly is a world known board game, played in 11 countries and translated into 43 languages. With many big cities and regions boasting their own version, and having had huge success in Spanish cities and regions such as Ibiza, Granada and Cantabria, it was about time the Costa del Sol got one for itself!

The Costa del Sol region is no doubt a perfect new addition to the game, with its stunning natural beauty, rich culture and international tourism, so it will resonate with locals and visitors alike. If you haven’t seen it already, the game incorporates many emblematic places such as the breathtaking Balcon de Europa in Nerja, the famous Larios street in Málaga, the Picasso Museum and the ever popular and appealing Puerto Banús in Marbella.

In addition, it places the area on a pedestal and invites many more to learn about the icons and symbols that make this region unique.

The addictive and educational game is bound to teach you a couple of things about finance and investment too, as well as giving you the opportunity to picture yourself as a proud owner of a dream property in this blessed region.
The game is distributed by the Spanish company, Eleven Force, and you can find it in big stores like El Corte Inglés or via online shops.

La Morelia de Marbella – Exciting New Lifestyle Apartments in Marbella


With the great choice of modern Marbella apartments for sale now, new projects have to really stand out to catch the eye. Fortunately Altavista Property is the expert in offering the very best contemporary architectural apartments for sale in Marbella.


There has been a burst of creative design talent visible in Marbella, where stylish villas and apartments featuring modern architecture have been added to the skyline in recent years. As available land in the more established areas close to the sea and all amenities of Marbella becomes increasingly scarce, it is more and more difficult to find the highly desirable blend of modern Marbella apartments and villas in top locations such as the Golden Mile, Sierra Blanca, Guadalmina, Rio Real and Nueva Andalucía.


Difficult, but not impossible, as La Morelia de Marbella proves. This exciting new development of stylish contemporary two-four bedroom apartments is located in a prime spot in Nueva Andalucía. From its elevated position, La Morelia de Marbella offers its residents lovely views across the leafy suburbs and golf courses of Nueva Andalucía down to nearby Puerto Banús and the Marbella shoreline. In fact, on clear days you can see across the Mediterranean Sea to the outlines of Gibraltar and the African continent.


Modern exclusivity guaranteed

A small, select gated community of just 18 luxurious apartments, duplexes and penthouses that boast advanced architectural styling and all the modern comforts you could wish for, La Morelia de Marbella apartments are spacious and bright, featuring open-plan living areas where the living room and terrace merge into one lifestyle area as the panoramic sliding doors glide open. Views and natural light are an element of life at this exclusive new Nueva Andalucía apartment complex, which finds itself surrounded by elegantly styled and beautifully finished gardens and communal areas with cascading water features.

Marbella Property Forecast 2017

Marbella promenade

If Marbella purred on nicely in spite of sometimes testing national and international factors during 2016, in 2017 the indicators are looking decidedly more positive, boding well for the Marbella property market.


In 2016 tourism continued to break records in terms of visits, hotel occupation and overall spending, while the equally vital real estate and construction sectors also registered good results. The fact that Marbella and the Costa del Sol continued to grow so strongly is doubly impressive given the challenging external factors that affected large parts of the world this past year.


Situations such as Brexit and the fact that for much of the year Spain was officially without a newly-elected government would test even the strongest of economies. But though there was an understandable slow-down in sales to British homebuyers after the referendum result that will take the UK out of the European Union by 2019, overall tourism and the property sector continued to perform well.


This is partly due to the fact that Marbella appeals to a very broad range of visitors and buyers from across Europe, Russia and the Middle East. “Scandinavian, Belgian and Dutch buyers are particularly fond of the modern off-plan properties for sale in Marbella now,” says Altavista Property CEO, Michael Liggan, who confirms that while resale homes continue to be popular it is the contemporary newly-built Marbella apartments and villas that are most strongly in demand.


Looking forward to 2017


This trend is set to continue in 2017, with new projects such as the stylish modern Marbella apartments in Bel Air, this exclusive new apartment complex in Cancelada and the contemporary architectural El Paraiso apartments and penthouses near Atalaya Golf continuing the success of La Finca de Marbella and La Montesa de Marbella. “These off-plan properties with modern styling, open-plan interiors and up-to-the-minute luxuries are what our buyers are really looking for now,” says Michael Liggan.


In 2017 the demand for such homes will remain strong, stimulated by exciting new developments such as these luxurious new Nueva Andalucia apartments and these modern off-plan properties in La Cala de Mijas. The decline in British buyers has been very moderate so far and more than offset by the strength of demand from other parts of Europe, and the resurgence of the Russian and Middle Eastern markets.


A truly positive note is the continued strength of the Spanish economy, which once again belongs to the fastest-growing in Europe. In 2017 it will be further bolstered by the fact that there is now a coalition government in place that will be adding public investment to the buoyant private sector. “The domestic market is showing renewed vigour, so overall the outlook for 2017 is much more positive than it was coming into 2016.”
