Marbella is one of the Mediterranean’s most famous tourist venues. What was once a small white fishing village is now one of the most cosmopolitan beach resorts anywhere in Spain.

Stylish and chic, Marbella is the most charismatic area on the coastline of the Costa del Sol. Considered the San Tropez of southern Spain, it draws a glamorous crowd and is home to many local and international celebrities.

Largely free from the high-rise blocks that characterise much of Spain’s southern coast, Marbella has an enchanting old town that echoes traditional Andalucia and is full of history. Its origins date back to 1600 BC so it’s fair to say that a little part of history can be found in every corner of the “old town” (Casco Antiguo). With its Moorish castle, and famous “Orange Square” (Plaza de los Naranjos), home to a mix of traditional coffee bars, terrace restaurants and boutique shops. Locals and tourists alike while away lazy afternoons and evenings lingering over drinks or a meal.. The historical old quarter with the Andalucian/Moorish mix can still be found with its flower filled balconies and narrow streets.

The Golden Mile is a stretch of four miles between Marbella and Puerto Banús, on which are located some of the most luxurious residences in Marbella, including the opulent Palace of King Fahd.

Puerto Banus itself, offers the ultimate in glitz and glamour. Renowned for its nightlife, there is an array of restaurants, bars and swanky cocktail lounges as well as a casino and port that heaves with impressive luxury yachts and fast power boats.

This is a wonderful area to enjoy your holidays and only 30 minutes’ drive from Malaga airport.

Marbella’s famous Skol Building (Edificio Skol) was the first building of its type in Marbella. Designed by renowned Modern Movement architect Manuel Jaén, it opened in 1963 as an apart-hotel but now comprises 3 wings of privately-owned apartments. The building encloses on three sides, large and beautiful, sub-tropical, private gardens opening onto the famous sandy beach of Marbella. The location is unique, as it is right in the heart of Marbella, so the Marbella Port, town centre and the historic quarter (Casco Antiguo) are all very easily accessible by walking and a car is definitely not required.

The Skol gardens include three swimming pools: one for adults only, one for family use and the third a very popular toddler pool. They are open to all guests whilst in residence but not to the general public. Sunbeds are also available for a small charge and there is a cafeteria serving drinks and snacks during the day. A private, secure gate gives access from the gardens, straight onto the promenade, (el Paseo Maritimo), and the beach. No busy, noisy, traffic, just straight out of the gate to the beach or an unforgettable stroll along the beautiful promenade.

With literally hundreds of bars, restaurants and shops with a small radius, this really is a wonderful place to enjoy your hard earned holidays.

There is also a 24 hour reception service, business centre with free Wi-Fi internet and 6 lifts.

Marbella Skol manages over 40 privately owned apartments in the Skol and we have an additional portfolio of some 25 other properties in Marbella and also in the exclusive resort of Bahia de la Plata in Estepona. We are sure that we can offer you the finest rental accommodation available. Contact us for availability and prices.



Estepona has an overall population of 80,000, the ‘old town’, as it is known, is a bustling and atmospheric centre.

It is one of the few coastal towns that has succeeded in maintaining its Pueblo charm and character, despite the onslaught of tourism. Notwithstanding, all the tourist facilities are here, including restaurants, leisure and cultural activities, and shops.

The many street cafes and tapas bars still serve traditional Spanish delicacies and the steep, cobbled, narrow streets seem more suited to horses than cars. You’ll also find unusual shops and bodegas in Estepona, where you’d least expect them, all very, very inviting, very friendly – and very cheap!

It is a great place for a family holiday. With an average of 325 days of sunshine a year, good weather is virtually guaranteed, and the resort is a little quieter than some other resort towns in Malaga such as Marbella.

There are a lot of things to do in Estepona. First there are the beaches, including two Blue Flag beaches. There’s the small cove of Playa Del Cristo to the West of the town, and the long sandy La Rada Beach to the East of Estepona marina.

In addition to sunbathing, however, Estepona provides opportunities for golf, with at least five golf courses in the local area (most obviously Estepona Golf). You can also take the family on day trips to attractions such as Selwo Safari Park, with over 2,000 animals who live in semi-wild conditions. Keen shoppers will love the El Corte Inglés dep

artment store at Puerto Banús, 20 minutes drive away from Estepona Port with a large number of designer outlets, including Armani and Versace. There’s certainly something for every taste in the area, and there’s much more to the Costa del Sol than just lazing in the sun
