    Lively, picturesque and historic – the real Marbella

    One of the liveliest coastal resorts on the Costa del Sol, Marbella delights visitors with fine white sandy beaches and the beautiful turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Here, you'll find everything from English-style pubs to bars and laid-back pavement cafes to traditional Spanish restaurants. Marbella's historical old quarter, the Casco Antiguo, boasts Andalusian and Moorish influences. The pretty streets are bursting with charming flower-filled balconies, bars, boutiques and restaurants. Admire facades featuring decoratively painted tiles, ancient churches and serene public squares and parks.

    Marbella's beautiful beaches

    The main draw in Marbella is of course the coastline. On the glorious white sands you can find plenty to do – from soaking up the rays, swimming in the warm waters of the Mediterranean or parasailing high above them. You can even whizz across the sparkling sea on a jet ski or white-knuckle powerboat ride. Golf is another major attraction – you'll find several well-regarded courses just a short drive from any Marbella vacation rental. If shopping is your thing, don't miss a trip to the nearby port of Puerto Banus where designer boutiques such as Chanel, Dior and Salvatore Ferragamo line the upscale, yacht-filled harbor.

    Art treasures in Marbella

    Take a walking tour of the winding streets of Marbella's old town to discover charming whitewashed houses wrapped in pink bougainvillea and colorful local restaurants and souvenir shops. The old town is home to a number of historic churches with interesting histories, including the Iglesia de la Encarnacion. Nearby, Museo del Grabado is a 16th-century Moorish-style palace which houses a collection of contemporary Spanish engraving including treasures by Goya, Picasso, Miro, Chillida and Dali. Just a short stroll away, Alameda Park offers peaceful respite among the trees and fountains. From here, you can follow the statue-lined Avenida del Mar to Playa de la Venus and Marbella's marina.

    Enjoy Marbella's year-round sunshine

    Marbella enjoys a beautiful spot between the Mediterranean to the south and the Sierra Blanca mountains in the north. As a result, it enjoys a pleasant microclimate with as many as 320 sunny days each year – making a Marbella vacation rental a great choice whatever the season. In spring, like much of Andalusia, the Santa Semana processions during Easter week are impressive acts of faith and community spirit. Then, in June, the town celebrates its patron saint in the week-long Fiesta of San Bernabe. September and October are some of the best months to enjoy the golf and local hiking.

    Fabulous hiking in the Sierra Blanca

    The brooding, treeless summit of La Concha dominates the view from Marbella. This peak in the Sierra Blanca coastal range is 1,215 meters tall and is a great day hike from a Marbella vacation rental. If you tackle it during the summer, just make sure you take plenty of water with you. You approach from the northwest, from the villages of Ojen or Istan or the mountain refuge of El Refugio de Juanar. The winding path heads up steep valleys under the shelter of tall pines and leafy oak trees before you emerge on the bare summit to glorious views across the sparkling Mediterranean to Morocco and the Atlas Mountains.
