If want to celebrate Christmas in style this year, why not rent a luxurious Marbella family villa over the festive period?
Imagine opening your gifts, basking in sunshine, overlooking the Mediterranean with your very own infinity pool and stunning facilities in Marbella – the jewel in the crown of Andalucia.
Winter, and Christmas in particular is a special time in southern Spain, with a host of activities, events and processions held throughout the streets and an average temperature of 19℃. Many of the beach bars remain open and the legendary nightlife of Puerto Banus is within easy reach.
The Costa del Sol is sheltered by the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, and Marbella’s microclimate attracts sun seekers who want to escape the chilly climes of northern Europe to its beaches in winter.
The vast range of things to see and do in the stylish city of Malaga and in the glitzy seaside resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus make southern Spain a must-visit destination for winter sun.
Luxurious family villas for rent at Christmas in Marbella are among the most sought-after properties on the rental market and provide amazing top-of-the-range facilities and designer décor – a beautiful place to spend the festive season.
Culture vultures should not miss the Picasso Museum, the stunning Cathedral or the Castillo de Gibralfaro in Malaga. Chill out on the beach in Puerto Banus, or relax in one of the many water-side cafés and watch the luxury yachts moor up, and the Ferraris roll by.
The Costa del Sol is a golfer´s paradise, and boasts over 70 courses between Malaga in the east and Sotogrande in the west – the best place in Europe during winter to play golf.
Marbella Old Town is also well worth a visit. Stroll around the cobbled streets or enjoy a cafelito or some tapas in Orange Square (Plaza de los Naranjos). This is a great place for people-watching while enjoying the winter sunshine.
Christmas in Marbella is celebrated by the locals with midnight mass on the 24th December, followed by huge family celebrations and then the Dia de Los Reyes event on the 6th January, where the 3 Kings are carried on floats through the streets in a huge procession with music and thousands of free sweets for the children.
The Kings arrive by sea and are said to bring gifts for the children which mysteriously ‘arrive’ when they are asleep. If you are looking for a typical home-from-home Christmas, why not let your host at your luxurious Marbella family villa arrange a private chef, or book one of many superb restaurants nearby for Christmas day and New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Malaga is just a 2-hour plane ride away from London, and is easily accessible from all major European airports.
Villa Issabella Marbella for Christmas or if you are looking for a Marbella Corporate Event Villa for rent, is one of the most stunning properties in southern Spain and accommodates up to 15 people. Why not do something different this year and make this one of your most memorable Christmases ever, surrounded by family and friends?
