finca-cala-abeto-01

The Finca de la Cala development of 33 detached villas builds on the success of La Finca de Marbella in Río Real. However, the latest project has larger plots and a smaller number of villas making it even more exclusive, private and secure. Residents will have the peace of mind that comes with 24-hr security in place and a location within the five-star La Cala Resort.

 

Pure elegance all around you

The La Cala Resort has an elegant country club feel with five-star hotel, golf course and spa facilities on hand. This upmarket complex opened in 1989 has evolved into one of the biggest golf and leisure destinations in Spain, and includes three championship golf courses and the La Cala Golf Academy.  What is more, residents will enjoy stunning mountain views and the sense that they are ‛in the country’ whilst only being a seven-minute drive from the coast and the beautiful beaches on this stretch of the coast and glamorous beach clubs, such as Nikki Beach and La Cabane. Residents will also only be 20 minutes from Marbella town, 25 minutes from Puerto Banús and 30 minutes from Málaga’s international airport. A visit to vibrant and arty Málaga city will only take 40 minutes to reach its vibrant centre.

Marbella offers an enjoyable day out regardless of what day of the week you decide to visit. However, there is something particularly special about Marbella on a Sunday ─ the streets, cafes, bars and restaurants are vibrant and fun as friends and family gather to enjoy their day off together. We have put together a small list of some of best ways to spend a Sunday in Marbella.

Sunday lunch

There is nothing quite like enjoying a lazy Sunday lunch, be it a traditional roast or fresh seafood on the beach; either way, Marbella promises a memorable Sunday lunch experience.

Those who enjoy stunning views while listening to the sound of jazz and soul will like Alevante restaurant, which overlooks the marina, or the Boardwalk, which is located on the Paseo Marítimo overlooking the beach. Both offer a traditional Sunday lunch and are popular with expats and tourists.

If you prefer fresh seafood on the beach, Restaurante Puerto Playa, situated near the fishing port, and also Chiringuito Veradero are popular with the locals and those who like to enjoy an afternoon of flamenco and the sound of classic guitar.

The Beach

Marbella has many different sections of beach that vary in size, atmosphere and popularity.  To the west of Marbella centre you will find the trendy Bounty Beach, which is a favourite of Marbella’s younger residents. It is home to a selection of trendy chiringuitos offering comfortable sunbeds, a lively atmosphere and live music from resident vocalists and DJs.

Marbella’s adult only hotel Amaré offers a fun day out with a touch of glamour in the centre of Marbella. Relax by the stylish pool or at the elegant beach club while enjoying the sound of soft chill out music. The venue hosts a special Sunday BBQ every week from 14.00hrs to add to the holiday ambience.

Those looking for a peaceful beach day can take advantage of The Golden Mile, where the sand is smooth, the water is clear, the beaches are less crowded and the vistas are simply breathtaking. Here Sunday afternoons are spent under a palm tree with a book, or relaxing in the sun while gazing out over the Mediterranean.

Marbella’s Puerto Deportivo

Marbella’s charismatic port is one of the best places to enjoy your Sunday, come day or evening. The bars are lively and full of colour, life and entertainment. Each Sunday the port features a small artisan market in the late afternoon where you can find unique items such as handmade jewellery, items of clothing, crafts and organic condiments such as pickles and honey.

The frontline bars that overlook the marina offer live music and a fun ambience that will take you from afternoon into the small hours. Particular favourites include Lemmon and Le Sud, while around the corner you will find Punto Faro, Nelly Mc’s Irish Bar and Punto Zero, all of which are popular Sunday spots with the locals and tourists of all ages.

New Art Exhibition Centre in Estepona

puerto de estepona foto 8Estepona continues in its quest to become a cultural hub on the Costa del Sol, as well as one of the prettiest towns on the coast thanks to it carefully colour-coordinated streets. It already has a Ruta de Poesía, a collection of gable-end murals that will be increased in number thanks to the latest competition for new designs, and a new theatre, which is now being extended to include an art gallery.

 

The Auditorio-Teatro Felipe VI on Calle Santo Tomás de Aquino is now the site of a large and spectacular space that will be used to host art and photography exhibitions. The first exhibition features Malagueño artist Andrés Antúnez, whose drawings of film stars are already well known in his home city.

 

The artist’s exhibition takes a tour of world cinema through its most emblematic characters, accompanied by the memorable catchphrases spoken by the characters in their films. Antúnez was previously known for putting these images and messages on T-shirts for the brand Dibu Naif.

 

His work had already caught the attention of the ‘Unicorn’ Association, but it was at the Malaga Comic Fair in the summer of 2013 that he developed his collaboration with the Costa del Sol Fantasy Film Festival. In the 2014 edition, and for the first time, Antúnez’s drawings jumped from his T-shirts on to the walls of an exhibition hall during the XV International Week of Fantasy Cinema on the Costa del Sol.

 

Estepona's Colourful MuralsThe town hall announced that the programming for the Exhibition Hall for the 2016/17 season will change every two months and the themes of the exhibitions will move away from that of more conventional art venues, focusing strongly on works related to cinema, music or comics.

 

The new exhibition space in Estepona will in future host shows by local, national and international artists. The inaugural show of work by Antúnez, which is very much in keeping with Estpona’s mural art, will be followed by exhibitions of ‘Portas de Vinilos Inmortales’ in June and July, and ‘Stars Wars, a Universe in Expansion’, in August and September.

 

Keep an eye out for the cultural programme of events in this up and coming part of the Costa del Sol, and contact us of you would like to know more about exciting properties for sale in Estepona.
