Where is Marbella, Spain?
On the map below you can see that Marbella is located on the Alboran Sea just west of the straight of Gibraltar. We think that Marbella is pretty close to heaven on earth as it is one of the premier destinations in Southern Spain. The weather is very temperate ranging from an average of 75 degrees in August to the low 50s in the month of January. This makes for beautiful beach weather in the summer months with only a light jacket required for the coldest winter days.
The Homes in Marbella
We love the modern luxury villas in Marbella. The architectural style of many of these homes is breathtaking. If you take a leisurely drive down the famous “Golden Mile” in Marbella you will find stunning and even breathtaking modern homes. Our design team chose just a few of the homes with unique architecture to showcase in this article. If you are looking for a second home, a vacation home, or a great place to retire then you should look into Marbella. We think that you will be impressed with the luxury home options available in this wonderful locality.
We love the angular wooden canopy overlooking this refreshing waterfall pool. The roof on this home serves as a spot for sun bathing and to take in the amazing Marbella views. The large and spacious roof is also a great place for a picnic on warm days.
Below is the back yard of one of the beautiful Marbella homes near the ocean front. The domed attached roof on the fully windowed sun room is an attractive feature of the modern architecture.
This Marbella home features hardwood elegance. Look inside the large sliding glass windows to see the modern white themed dining area for evening meals with a view of the pool and manicured landscape.
The spacious back yard of this Marbella home enhances the value of this uniquely styled two level home. The second level opens to an elevated outdoor leisure area that is partially roofed in with slats for shading. When the weather is nice… which it almost always is… the outdoor dining area on the roofed in ground floor patio makes the perfect setting for an evening meal.
Dining in Marbella
Mediterranean food in Marbella is some of the best in Spain. We love the Old Town area where restaurants abound. One of the local favorites is a restaurant named Paco Jimenez. This is a small and intimate restaurant that is known through out the region as one of the best fine dining restaurants in Spain. Put it this way… if you travel to Marbella you should miss the dining experience in Paco Jimenez. Patrons continually rate this restaurant as one of the best dining experiences available.
In summary, the upscale area of Marbella, Spain is a great choice for upscale modern living in an amazing home. If you are interested we recommend a visit. You will fall in love with this area for the amazing modern architecture, great year round weather, friendly people, and wonderful fine dining.
