Christmas holiday rentals in Marbella

It’s a great time of the year for young and old alike – the Christmas season is well and truly upon us and with the lighting of the dazzling illuminations in Málaga, Marbella and San Pedro, we are all getting into the Christmas spirit. For our Northern European cousins, however, it is a time of huddling by the warmth of the fire or wrapping up against the elements before venturing outdoors!

Marbella has so much to offer all year round, with the evident attraction of the beaches during the summer seeing tourist numbers grow by record levels every year. However the fabulous climate in this part of the Mediterranean also sees visitor numbers rise during the winter. It may be too cold for a dip in the sea, however, there are many other activities to enjoy once the temperatures start falling.

The Costa del Sol is not known as the Costa del Golf for nothing, and this time of the year is peak season for golfers. Temperatures are much more pleasant and with the beautiful clear skies of the cooler season, the views from the fairways of the surrounding mountains and across the coast to Africa are stupendous.

Christmas may not be snowy here in Marbella, yet what many people don’t realise is that you don’t have to go far to hit the slopes. In less than two hours you can leave the beach behind and arrive at the ski resort of Sierra Nevada. Open since 1964, this is a great family resort with 125 runs of varying levels reaching an altitude of 3,300 metres. The striking snow-capped mountains can be seen in the distance when heading into Málaga and provide a beautifully Christmassy ambience to the Andalusian port city.

There is a huge range of rental property in and around the Marbella area, with a selection that offers something for everyone. From a two bedroom apartment overlooking the fairways for golfers, to luxurious villas with cosy real fires for those traditional family Christmases, we are sure to have something to suit your needs. Please don’t hesitate to call us to discuss your requirements.
