Marbella self catering holidays, Costa del Sol Holiday rentals - villas & holiday homes in Marbella

Marbella sits on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain and has been attracting tourists for generations. A fantastic destination for anytime of year but especially during the summer months.

Whilst a vibrant and modern cosmopolitan town, Marbella retains its rich Arabic culture and history as can be seen in the Old Quarter with its magnificent Los Naranjos Plaza (Plaza of the Orange Trees). The narrow cobbled streets are lined with boutiques, cafes and restaurants and is a magnet for tourists day and night.

The evenings are very lively especially around the beach front. The promenade which runs right along the coast to Porto Banus is the hub of activity with tapas and beach bars open until the early hours.
