What makes Marbella so desirable to live with the demanding Belgian? And why are Marbella and the Costa del Sol a world-famous destination?

Here are some reasons why living in Marbella is worth it:


One of the best reasons, of course, is the fantastic climate.

Did you know that the weather in Marbella is one of the best in all of Europe? With cooler summers and warmer winters, the weather in Marbella is more pleasant than in the rest of Spain and even in the rest of the province of Malaga. This is thanks to the location of Marbella at the foot of the mountain ‘La Concha’. Thanks to La Concha, Marbella enjoys a microclimate, with an average annual temperature of 18° C and about 320 days of sunshine per year.

So say goodbye to the winter depression and high oil bills!


Life in Marbella is better for your health thanks to the beautiful weather, the friendly lifestyle and the healthy Mediterranean cuisine.

If you do get sick, you will be in good hands in Marbella. The best specialists have established themselves on the Costa del Sol in recent decades because of the favourable living conditions. In Marbella and Estepona you will find several hospitals and specialized clinics, equipped with the latest technologies and equipment, as well as several doctors and dentists who speak Dutch and English. The Costa del Sol also offers a wide variety of good clinics for plastic and cosmetic surgery.


Marbella is really a place where it’s good to be all year round. And not only for the rich and famous.

Life in Marbella is even much cheaper than in Belgium and you can enjoy a higher standard of living. Of course it is nice to get to know the glitter and glamour that is never far away in Marbella. However, there are plenty of pubs and beach restaurants where everyone can go. Be sure to try a fresh seafood dish, taste the tapas in Marbella’s old town or enjoy a cool sangria overlooking the sea.


You can travel to and from your home in Marbella in no time at all. It is only a 2 – 3 hour flight from the different airports in Belgium,   The Netherlands or the UK and  with the numerous cheap flights it is cheaper than ever before to fly back and forth to family and friends.


Always wondered how the rich & famous live? Marbella’s jet set consists of film stars, pop artists, oil magnates and soccer players from all over the world. Ever since the 1950s, the rich of the earth have been able to find their way to this once sleepy fishing village. Before you know it, you’ll meet Antonio Banderas or Eva Longoria in the cosy streets.

In Marbella there is no shortage of celebrities.


You can go hiking, cycling, horseback riding, swimming, boating, skiing (indeed!), shopping, …. and of course good food and drink. Marbella is also an excellent base for cultural day trips to historic cultural cities such as Cordoba, Seville and Granada.

So we can safely say Costa del Sun and Fun.


Marbella has sublime beaches as well as impressive mountains and nature reserves.

La Concha and the nearby Sierra de las Nieves provide beautiful views that many homes enjoy. The panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and even the North African coastline are also a great asset for many a property in Marbella.


Not to mention, the houses in Marbella are incredibly beautiful.

Modern apartments and penthouses with sea views, a house in the hills or a villa in one of the many golf resorts: the most beautiful and exclusive real estate offer is waiting for you.

Go out during the day in the  glamorous area and relax in the evening with a glass of wine in your own backyard while enjoying a breathtaking sunset. Or invite your friends and family to a party in your own villa with pool.

Whatever your dream home is, it is most likely in Marbella!
