Advanced modern living comes to Marbella

After the success of the villas at La Finca de Marbella, the 24 state-of-the-art contemporary townhouses recently launched are setting a new standard for style and luxury in Marbella.
 
There has been a clear trend in recent years towards sleek contemporary styling, modern high-tech amenities and a more convenient form of luxury and sophistication. As a result villas have become more compact whilst also being more advanced and stylish, but now the creators of the highly acclaimed La Finca de Marbella development have launched a series of townhouses that not only bridges the gap between conventional townhouses and villas, but takes the entire genre to a new level.

Villa refinement at Encina
The 24 modern homes will feature three spacious bedroom and bathroom suites set in a stylishly finished urbanisation dominated by landscaped gardens and a communal pool. This is notwithstanding the fact that the townhouses feature their own panoramic rooftop terraces with private plunge pool from which to enjoy stunning views across the Bay of Marbella as it follows the sweep of the coast to the point where the Mediterranean and Atlantic meet.

The first floor is home to the attractive private quarters; a spacious open-plan living room contains a modern kitchen, floating staircase, dining area and lounge that merges with the terrace to create one large living space designed for a privileged modern way of life. The fact that these homes defy the actual description of a townhouse and have more in common with villas is also evident in the fitness room and saunas contained within the lower basement floor.

Indeed, they are certainly among the finest luxury townhouses for sale in Marbella – and far beyond. You can take quality building materials, construction standards and the latest technical amenities and luxuries for granted, but what really makes the Encina townhouses at La Finca de Marbella stand out is the grace and beauty of their retro-inspired modern architecture.

It’s Time for Golf in Marbella

Santa Maria Golf - blog

In theory, golfers can play in Marbella all year round, but the heat of the summer months can prove too testing for many lovers of the sport. However, September, with its slight drop in temperatures that makes a day out on the fairways an altogether much more appealing affair, is the perfect time for the golf season in Marbella to start again.

 

Marbella is blessed with an array of superb golf courses to choose from and Rio Real golf club to the east of the town is one of its best. Designed by Javier Arana, one of the best Spanish golf course designers of all time, its 18-hole, 6,000m long course has been attracting professional and amateur golfers since it opened in 1965. The Royal Spanish Golf Federation considers it to be one of the most prestigious courses on the Costa del Sol—and one of the best in Spain!

 

Its location, which is a mere five-minute drive from the centre of chic Marbella with its charming Old Town, its stylish restaurants and beautiful promenade, has made it a popular resort for those who want to live near a golf course year round, as well as those property owners who are looking for a holiday home in Marbella that is perfectly situated to take advantage of the golf season.

 

The natural environment on this eastern side of Marbella is renowned for its green spaces and residents of Rio Real are surrounded by pine, palm, olive and cypress trees that provide shade and a feeling of tranquillity whatever time of year it is. The clear views of the Mediterranean from this point also add to its many attractions, as do its Blue Flag beaches and fashionable beach clubs, such as Trocadero Arena and La Cabâne at Los Monteros. It is undoubtedly a residential area that exudes exclusivity and sophistication.

 

La Finca de Marbella is a modern development of exclusive villas and townhouses that embodies both of those values. This high-end, private community of residences offers the best of both worlds; the peacefulness of a secluded spot that is also within a few minutes of all the essential amenities. Situated on gently sloping ground, the southwest-facing properties offer both sea and mountain views, and the choice of a modern architectural style that is ‘on trend’ with the market, blended with the age-old olive groves, is an integral part of the overall vision for La Finca. As the developers of La Finca announced in the promotional literature: “In blending nature and modernity we wish to offer the best of both worlds; a location that is peaceful and secure, yet central and convenient.”

British Love Affair with Marbella Continues post-Brexit

The  planeIn the wake of the Brexit referendum in June there were many who feared that the longstanding British love affair with the Costa del Sol would come to a sudden end. The pound weakened against the euro in the wake of the surprise result, and this might very well have discouraged many Brits to stop visiting Marbella, but the contrary is true as tourist numbers from the UK continue to soar this summer.

In July bookings at Spanish hotels by British tourists were up 15%, and this trend continued throughout the summer, which will go down in Marbella history as the busiest ever. The picture was mirrored in other parts of Spain too, where British holidaymakers accounted for over a quarter of all hotel reservations. This helped to push average hotel occupation on the Costa del Sol to almost 80% in July, well past that figure in August, and even in September the region’s hotels and resorts are expected to be three-quarters full.

It’s a picture that has been consistent throughout the year so far, with the first quarter of 2016 13% up on the same period of 2015, so it is fair to say that Marbella, the Costa del Sol and Spain as a whole will post yet another record year for tourism in 2016. The current tourist boom is not exclusive to the British. Tourist visits from France were up 8.8%, from Germany 4.1% and Holland 3.8%, with large numbers of holidaymakers from Scandinavia, Russia, the Middle East and Spain itself adding significantly to the total.

British retain their focus on Marbella

It is fair to say, therefore, that the love for Marbella remains as strong as ever, and this is particularly noticeable among British visitors, who in spite of the weaker pound continue to flock to this region in large numbers. In actual fact, they outpace most other Europeans in growth terms this summer, and continue to be the largest single group of homeowners and property buyers in Marbella. Moreover, the average amount that British tourists and homeowners spend while in these parts has remained stable.

“It seems clear that the British love affair with Marbella’s lifestyle is far from over,” says Michael Liggan, owner of Altavista Property. “This also translates to the property sector, where British buyers continue to represent one of the main markets for luxury apartments and villas for sale in Marbella – and for the time being there are no signs that this may change any time soon.”
