Globalization is one of the main causes which changed the model of social relationshios. This created an increasing homogenization at tastes and fashion.

Hence in this industry, they exist many kinds of Premium experiences, from travels to jewelry, going through clothing or tehcnology, it attempts comsumers and it’s adapting to new purchasing experiences. And great luxury brands didn’t stop growing.

In the last year, luxury brands consider the alternative of widening their audience, including the possibility of renting luxury ítems to specific occasions, but with the need of protecting luxury exclusivity”, points out Kantar Millward Brown report. Luxury brands kept doing traditional advertising, by trying to increase their audience while they retain loyal customers”, marks out Kantar Millward Brown. Just one out of three brands count on online and mobile sales channels. According to Luxury Spain data research. (A Spanish Luxury non-profit Organisation registered at National Organisations Register with the purpose of gathering professionals of Spanish companies and luxury brands).

While Apple, Google and Microsoft are the three most valued companies in the world.

Hermès got a great growth in the last two years, coming from the brand’s integrity protection and for the committed to preserve its cultura of excellence.

The key factors at luxury brands industry:

-Liable products range dimensioning to be part of luxury industry.

-But, which is the purchase decission-making process. A luxury product is normally related to something which purpose isn’t just satisfying a primary need.

– Buyer’s purchase power: something more decisive than the life style or a social class belong.

Globalization caused, two consequences: an easy access to luxury products. And then the entry into worldwide market of new actors coming from emerging countries.

-It turned complicated due to counterfeiting appereance.

-There have been an evolution from brand consideration as a logotype to a brand as as relation model.

-Expected quality, we can say that luxury always means quality, but nowadays they what they look for in luxury is more distinction and exclusivity.

How do luxury brands differentiate?

Finally, the answer to this for the most part is related to intangibles, as they are customer service, and making of purchasing act an unique experience.

-Customer service. At online buying, it’s very complicated to find an online valued relation with the customer.

-Turning the product selling and the product itself into an experience. As these are very difficult to replicate.

Because of this, all the brands had to define the “customer journey”. about buying process. How to achieve a purchase from a potential customer, but above from all, what to do to maintein the loyalty; and what to offer to turn them into a prescriber of the own brand.

The best sustainable villas in the world

sustainable villas

On today’s post we’re telling you about some of the essential elements which define iLuxenio’s activity. Our subject is not other but the construction of sustainable villas.

After reading this post, you’ll know what actually means a sustainable home, which elements are them composed of. As well as the reasons of the customers to choose this kind of construction. Finally, after explaining you the current scenario for these, we’ll leave you a list with the best sustainable villas in the world.

A sustainable home is that which bases its performance and construction on sustainability principles. This will imply a clean energy consumption and even energy self-sufficiency. We can also talk about homes made of ecological materials, or which performance (apart from coming from clean energy), it doesn’t provoke any impact on the environment.

The main reasons for buyers to go for sustainable villas are:

  • Comfort: living in a sustainable house guarantees you the maximum comfort with nature, although visually it doesn’t seem to be like that. Feeling, breathing and touching a home made of fine materials always make you feel good.
  • Health: inside a sustainable villa, it’s impossible to perceive signs of excessive moisture, lack of ventilation, etc. This would help the increasing number of people who suffer from respiratory diseases. As it avoids allergy problems, asthma, migrain or skin irritations.
  • Savings: the fact that sustainable villas are built in the best conditions, talking about thermal insulation, orientation, or cross ventilation would mean that it’s easier to reach a constant temperature and that it wouldn’t require a greater energy performance for it, due to low-quality enclosures, or an inadequate construction as much as for materials as for home’s orientation. If we really want to have a full sustainable home, we won’t regret about the great advantage it brings at long-term.
  • Regulations: the Technical Building Code (TBC), on its Basic Document of Energy Savings binds all new constructions before December 31st 2020 to be considered as nearly-zero energy.
  • Lifestyle: if you feel yo owe nature, ori f you think you could be more responsible with it. The peak of a healthy lifestyle isn’t only affecting to diet or exercising, but to all the activities we’re daily doing.

How to identify sustainable villas? Which elements make them different?

First of all, the wealth of natural materials.

Sustainable villas are made of fine and local materials, and make use of them for its correct functioning. We talk about locals because of obtaining easily resources. And because these materials are naturally made for adapting to the environment where they’re extracted and where they’re going to be built.

On the other hand, the plants multitude. Those help to mantain a constant temperature and moisture in the home. Apart from it, it’s ideal to use plants which require of very few water resources an those covered with rain collected water.

Secondly, by its design and orientation.

Sustainable villas projected on a plane seem to be perfect bioclimatic architecture works. But on the ground, these could mean a pain in the neck.

On the ground, the correct orientation of the home could be something impossible to get, or the correct functioning of the house not as efficient as expected. The same thing could happen with design, the work execution has to respect and understand the villa’s performance so the inital purpose of the construction doesn’t ruin itself.

Finally, the use of renewable energies and technological elements.

Sustainable villas are match really well with technology, although we apparently match sustainability with natural and ecological. Technology is able to control some certain elements of the villa in order to reach ideal temperature conditions (smart home). And obviously, another differential element would be to see renewable energy devices joined to one of the adjacent parts of the villa.

After knowing these features of sustainable villas, here we leave below some of the best sustainable villas in the world:

It’s a full efficient villa located at Venice, California. It’s a single-family home which adapts to the needs of a family with children.

Why is luxury becoming eco-friendly?

ecofriendly

What made environmentalism and sustainability to take part into major luxury firms rather than keeping at background? As much as construction, fashion, weddings, and travels. Even touristic draws, glamping, etc., ecofriendly world and luxury are already going hand in hand. And they’re getting on really well.

But they exist complementary concepts as eco-healthy, eco-chic.. . An endless list of definitions thai s eve making us to wonder if we really understand what we read whethe to embrace it.

But, in a scene of a strong bet for what is socially responsible. And for an ecosystem which isn’t letting us more time to hesitate about respecting the environment or not. All the luxury companies from all the industries are shaping their business model performing by the rules of environmentalism principles. And for it, ecofriendly concept (friends with eco world), comes out ahead.

How did luxury and environmentalism manage to complement each other?

Probably luxury is a concept conventionally related to resources waste and to extravagance. Environmentalism, to a simple life or to make the most of resources. In common, the change in society’s mentality. Resources provided by nature and required to any created and consumed thing. Apart from that, purchase power doesn’t save anyone from floods, earthquakes or hurricanes.

Now, more aware of a responsible consumption, companies want to become leaders in opinion, trends, and consumption in this field too. Selling luxury as a way of resources conservation, the purest and as less transformed as possible.

Once this trendy relationship explained, we would like to tell you about different industries related to luxury, which are very commited to ecofriendly philosophy.

Homes and construction

A recognizable ecofriendly character is related to a tolerant furnituring in respect with the environment, materials’ recycling with which they’re made of, or to their ecofriendly production and performance.

A zen luxury villa is the style (even visually) which better represents how an energy efficient house is.

Using plants for our garden that don’t require of much water resources.

Also, using disposable pallets, with a fresh painting and varnish layer, are a perfect solution for a portable table.

Painting without chemicals (mercury or lead) or holes used as stores under the stairs.

If you want to build your sustainable home or you want to check if your house is, the ideal thing is to appeal to certification mechanisms as LEED or BREEAM certifications.

These certifications establish some performing patterns for a home, and certificate it helps you to guarantee that your home is being respectful with the environment.

ecofriendly

Fashion

Also, in the world of fashion, we can see how real consumption clothing leaders as H&M or Inditex are creating their own ecofriendly and exclusive business lines.

In Inditex, ‘Green to Wear’ is in charge of the ecological management of clothes tinting, water management and machinery energy management.

On the other hand, Green Carpet Challenge event, where celebrites are challenged to parade with eco brands throughout the carpet. Eco-Age brand, supplier of eco products to the greates fashion brands, and the footwear designer Sergio Rossi left us stunning designs as this is:

But we would like to highlight too a Spanish company positioned at bathing clothes market. AllSisters has also known how to read the market’s needs and it’s already conquered several continents thanks to its organical clothes, with no need of giving up on processes functionality nor vanguardism at designing.

Travels

Especially relevant, Costa Rica is one of the most renowned countries for leading sustainable tourism. It’s an earthly paradise which has properly known how to take over ecofriendly market. Which offers wealthy hosting and activities options, all of them respectful with the environment.

Since they know their customers’ need, they know they these are ready to pay a higher price if they’re provided with services which guarantee that they’re not damaging environment. In the own country, they grant the Certificado de Sostenibilidad Turística (CST) to those hotels which meet the requirements.

Also, in the last few years an ecofriendly housing trend called glamping, has been created. It’s about the combination of glamour and camping words. And these are real sustainable pieces of art, which offer the maximum contact with nature at the same time with luxury services and equipments.

ecofriendly

Along this post, you could see the wide variety that ecofriendly and luxury offers.

In iLuxenio we are experts in the construction of luxury villas. By applying sustainability and exclusivity principles, from the main shaping material of the villa until its energy certification. We believe in a sustainable life style.  Beginning by your own home is a more than good way to make it.

The last breaking trends in luxury decoration

luxury decoration

Beyond tastes, styles and colours, there are infallible tricks in decoration, those which work a 100% sure. That’s why we’re telling you about the last trends in luxury decoration, with the new year come beautiful things, colours and details in decoration. This is what trends tell us about decoration for 2018.

The growing use of technology and social media allow us to know quickly and easily about trends and styles in interior decoration. We’ll show you the main design trends and luxury decoration for 2018, in a series of concepts that we’ve encountered to keep you updated.

Vintage is in vogue, this decoration is based on getting back old elements, and refurbish them in order to give our decoration a more trendy and modern hint. Another style which is boosting decoration trends for this 2018 is the renovated classic style, to create original environments.

Hereafter we’re telling you the trends in luxury decoration for this 2018:

Colour

Plenty of warm and earthy colours instead of the minimalist variety from the last seasons. Sienna, bronze, terracotta, green mold and reddish hues are seen in rooms’ walls, as they’re seen too on furnitures and decoration ítems.

luxury decoration

Kitchens

Marble is still the favourite material for kitchens although the current aspect looks way more discreet. Instead of Carrara’s marble, we can see green and brown marble. Marble foundations are thinner.

Other proposals go for black kitchens, which bring a contemporary and sophisticated aspect, especially if they mix with interior plants. The black colour applies to metal, painted wood and stone, even to the sink.

The trend of hiding homewares and crockery doesn’t exist anymore, now we see glass-door wardrobes and open shelves to show those dishes. Home appliances as refrigerators, dishwashers and kitchen stoves are elements proner to be hidden in the kitchen.

luxury decoration

Living rooms

Luxury decoration shapes are organic or geometric. Among geometrical designs we can see stripped shapes and among organic shapes many curved chairs and hand-painted wallpapers.

Regarding to styles and materials these include terrazzo, velvet, ottomans, and side tables, lamps, copper objects, glazed ceramics. Upholstery cloth keep being a breaking trend in luxury decoration.

luxury decoration

Bathrooms

Colour continues to be the player in the bathroom, for tiles and sinks and baths. We can see colours as pale plum, greyish blue, dark green, beige, brown and charred.

luxury decoration

Materials

Warm materials for floors and walls they will substitute to cold white-hued or neutral materials. Unlike the 80’s, they’ll have a natural matt finishing and then they’ll be used for floorings and walls’ coatings, as for chimneys.

Cork adds warmth and texture to spaces, and it’s also ideal to isolate from the noise inside our homes. It can be used at furniture production, but also for walls’ coatings.

luxury decoration

Currently, wooden bedheads are the most trendy, but in 2018, upholsted beadheads will dominate the market.

They are a traditonal element to decorate luxury bedrooms, but their use has been retaken in the last few years.

Whether you choose a traditional model in neutral hues with buttons, or a velvet model, this kind of element adds eye-catching luxury and glamour to a room. They’ll also be applicable to those decorated with nail heads.

The last trend is to create little spots to disconnect from all the technology sorrounding us. A little interior garden is a perfect chance for it. A squashy sofa facing the interior garden could bring us great comfort for a relaxing time contacting the plants.

Yet metallics hues are used, as they are copper, bronze and golden, but those will give way to more industrial metals as they are black steel or burnished metals. Brass, polished nickel, and silver are returning. But still the mix of warm and cold metals will be used, as iron and bronze.

Black stainless steel is winning, and it’s going to dominate at appliances this and the following years. As it’s very elegant and combines with every kind of decoration and design.

Natural materials as wood, clay or wicker will replace marble, this was very trendy in the last years. The natural texture, it’ll also be applicable to drive attention to the rooms. Dark woods are emerging for furniture usage in 2018.

Presently people prefer private designs. It’s about separating spaces for a greater comfort and practicality.

Tiles are applicable for baths and kitchens coatings, but current trends, will tend to diminish the surface’s size.

luxury decoration

Wallpapers, as watercolor strokes or huge painted flowers, apart from creating a powerful aspect in the rooms, they’ll also be breaking the market.

It’s about creating a full-scale piece of art.

luxury decoration

Pieces with worn-out aspect are in too, those add much tecture and personality to a room.

Geometric prints will be in for curtains, bed linens, cushions.

 

Other trends boosting the luxury decoration market will be:

  • burlap
  • natural colours
  • industrial style furnitures
  • open shelves
  • painted furnitures
  • natural fiber carpets
  • modern details from the middle 20th century, among others…

Do you imagine living over the sea?

homes in Formentera

On today’s post we are telling you how the life is near the sea. Living near the sea is an unique experience. Those lucky people who have the chance to do it, for example at homes in Formentera, they can’t give better references : mild temperatures throughout the year, pure air to renew energies, and a Mediterranean diet very advisable to carry out a good lifestyle.

Hereafter, we’re telling you which are the particular benefits that people who live in the beach notice, and other spotted advantages by doctors and specialists:

Health

For those people who suffer from respiratory diseases, as asthma is. The decongestant components’ richness in the air helps to relief this kind of diseases (iodine and mineral salts).

It also helps to stabilize the blood pressure. We should take into account, that the air pressure is higher and so the oxygen quantity in the air. This air provides with more oxygen to organs and body tissues.

The high iodine content (natural bactericide) in the air fights eye and respiratory infections too, and generally the immune system. Iodine is also responsible for stabilizing the metabolic system and for helping the thyroid hormones’ production to normalise.

Stress out!

The lack of artificial activity in a natural environment as the beach is, it helps the environment to keep a negative charge (iodines). Those iodines’ negative charge helps us, among others, to stimulate neurotransmitters, to increase serotonin production and to clear the mind. Above from all, how it specially helps is by falling asleep faster. And we all say it, there’s no place to sleep better than the beach, without waking up in the night, without the city’s noise… just hearing the background roar of the waves.

homes in Formentera

What does the sea provide to luxury?

A luxury life and so, a luxury home, is focused on the maximum comfort. From the own house’s elements, to its placement. And this is, after the benefits described above, isn’t already a luxury the simple fact of being able to enjoy of the coast?

Sea and luxury perfectly match, as both of them defend a perfect and pleasing lifestyle in which health, security and comfort go together in the same package. It’s not a coincidence that the most amazing villas, as those we build in iLuxenio, are all built right on the beach. They meet together the perfect home with the ideal placement.

For example, a very related element with luxury villas and these in a good placement are the infinity pools. These pools are, as we know well, those which visually lack of edges and reflect the landscape they face ahead. An infinity pool  at homes in Formentera is essential, the result is astonishing and the landscape clamours for it.

 Homes in Formentera

Hereafter we are presenting you 2 choices of homes in Formentera, in which you could basically say that you are living over the sea.

Swimming pools to customer’s liking

swimming pools

A swimming pool is an essential luxury for a villa or a detached house and there’s a variety of existing swimming pools which count on plenty of designs, sizes and materials. As a result, swimming pools are the architectural elements which better define luxury.

In this following post we’ll talk you about all kinds of pools. As they are: infinity pools, in which the water seems to lose in the horizon, those on rooftops, those with colourful bottoms, those underground… all of them have in common their beauty and exclusiveness.

Kinds of swimming pools:

According to their design and construction, swimming pools could be:

Elevated pools

They’re known as prefabricated swimming pools. It’s a kind of pool which doesn’t require of much work talking about big works’ execution when installing them, as they don’t need a space on the ground. Although this kind of pools doesn’t exceed to ground level’s ones, those are yet the preference despite of the great technical advances  in the last years.

Underground pools

We find the vast majority of pools this way. These  kinds of pools require of a hole work on the ground. The builders prefer this kind of swimming pools against the prefabricated swimming pool models. Although there’s a increase in the demand of these in the last years.

Glass fiber reinforces polyester’s swimming pools

Since these are made of one single piece on a preformed shape. It embraces the shape of a mould or specific moulds which could be modular or single pieced too. For its installation, as it’s under the ground, a hole with the shape and size of the polyester pool must be dug. But, they exist many qualities and depending on those, this kind of pools would require more or less maintenance, but generally, it’s necessary to protect them for down times and to make a maintenance each 4-5 years at least, as the chemicals used for the water’s treatment affect the polyester and could produce a crack on the pool’s structure.

Stainless steel swimming pools

Stainless steel swimming pools are pools which installation consists mostly on stainless preformed modular panels which size would depend on the model and design of the chosen pool. Hence, they usually have a more similar finishing to a working pool. For the execution of this kind of pools, it requires a time of 7-10 days.

Concrete pools

They’re usually made custom size, according to the client’s specifications. Especially relevant, this is the most common underground or ground level kind of pool. Its installation costs less than a glass fiber polyester pool. The construction phases for these pools are:

Also design, hole digging, pieces placement and installation, plumbering installation, fittings of technical equipment, concrete’s spraying, slabs and glassy tiles placement and exteriors and interiors installation.

Mixed or steelglass swimming pools

It’s an underground pool’s construction system which covers the best of each pool. Adding quality, durability and finishings completely uniques in the market. This kind of pools brings us some advantages as they are: security, construction and assembly speed, quality/price ratio and its durability. But the greatest advantage which brings is the complete personalization for every single customer. As this one can choose the size which better fits, the desired shape, the numbers of entrances to the pool, the colour and engraving, the glass mosaic drawings or the lighting…

Wooden swimming pools

Probably, this kind of pools are the most uncommon, in Spain they’re not very usual to find, although it doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. Among the kinds of wooden pools, they exist several models: ground level pools or underground pools, semi-underground pools or elevated swimming pools.

Finally, pools are one of the most sought elements in a luxury home, having a great swimming pool, a whirlpool bath… it’s what the customer who wants to build his/her dream home looks for, a private wide pool with water falls is essential.

In conclusion, some luxury pools features:

  • Being able to join architecture and relax. Luxury swimming pools, apart from being amazing and large, usually have as the main feature its design.  It’s usually related to the fact of being able to enjoy of it.
  • Betting on vegetation: nature adds much value to the bath’s enjoyment.
  • Rustic colours, navy colours.. But colours are important when choosing a luxury pool.

Furthermore, here you have an article with 20 examples of the most amazing swimming pools:

Renowned architects at luxury residential industry

luxury residentials

Luxury residentials, as those we make customized in iLuxenio,  them have a work behind that we couldn’t be able to imagine.  If we don’t know about the construction process of a home from zero deeply.

First of all, who is behind the creation of luxury residentials is mainly the architect. The authentic orchestra conductor of the works which are being built and the ones about to build. A luxury architect has qualities as them could be the extreme detail at work execution. Probably, the tendency to landscaping and a refined taste for the home adaption to the environment. From its guidance to the riges’ play  of the materials which are being used.

In addition, at the moment of building our own luxury residentials it’s essential to choose the architect who adapts the most to the home style in which you imagine yourself living in. So,  as we do in iLuxenio, where you can check the works of different architects and choose the style  which you feel identified the most.

Most renowned architects in luxury residentials:

 

It’s the studio directed by Rafael Llamazares and Joaquín Torres. In the projects’ portfolio they count on the construction of the exclusive and luxurious development ‘La Finca’ in Pozuelo de Alarcón. This residential complex is the home for numerous footballers and singers, among its inhabitants they are Cristiano Ronaldo or Alejandro Sanz. Both architects are friends since they studied together at University and after designing their own bar in La Coruña. The magnate Amancio Ortega asked them to design several establishments for his chain and his own residential ‘El Parrote’. Since then, their career only has emerged, until the point that they were given the task to design half of ‘La Finca’. Nowadays they own several headquarters all over the world: Dubai, Santo Domingo, India, Russia or Vietnam. Here we leave you a pic of other luxury residential projects :

This architect from Bilbao, Eduardo Arroyo, is the one behind this studio. Staunch defender of signature style, as he reflects on his works. Apart from the ideas which the ‘manipulated’ from the Architecture Colleges defend, he keeps a web open by pure ‘obligation facing the virtual world’. Therefore his projects’ portfolio is as abstract and eye-catching as his professional profile:

He’s an architect wordly known as much for his professor’s aspect as for his architect’s. In his great residential works’ portfolio we find one of the most notable, ‘Casa del Infinito’, above the endless sea of Cádiz, the city where he grew up. In addition, together with his team they run the studio which has his own name, he defines his architectural work as a mix between the Gravity that defines space and the Light which builds the time.

  • Alfredo Muñoz

This young architect is the one behind the studio Abibbo. He’s more than probably one of the new pearls of Spanish architecture.  Moreover, for his early age he has already learnt and has let himself influence by the best architects (Campo Baeza or Toyo Ito). His projects’ portfolio is very diverse but his most stunning works are luxury residentials. Also he has already built in India, Spain or Dominican Republic. This studio’s philosophy is based on architecture innovation, the urbanism, the interior design and the product development.

This Spanish architect is another indispensable in our list, cofounder of the prestigious studio Ábalos&Herreros disolved in 2008. Now he’s working too on his own account with her partner Renata Sentkiewicz in their studio Ábalos+Sentkiewicz.  He was a professor in Harvard and ETSAM, one of his most important works at luxury residentials is at the luxurious Finca Cortesín. The house is in the very middle of Costa del Sol, where they have a two villas’ project of Mediterranean style.

As a result, we recognize that this list is an understatement. As these architects are the most renowned at maximum recognition and international luxury level.  But there are many others who don’t cause the same impact by their works’magnitude, but who also deserve their position on the top of luxury architects.

In iLuxenio we are leaders at luxury residentials’ construction and our success is a guarantee as reflected in our built villas’ catalogue.

Especially relevant,  we also count on the best professionals of the industry.

Why living in Marbella

Living in Marbella

Thanks to statistics report, it’s been shown that living in Marbella is a very frequented habit, especially during the summer.

Apart from that, many of these visitors who go to tourism finally stay living in Marbella.

Those people are original from England and Germany, they enjoy of the magnificent weather in October.

Hotels nearly don’t have available rooms by this season.

Most of them already consider the possibility to stay in such a remarkable location as Costa del Sol is.

We can highlight its incredible locations as the noticeable Puerto Banús, or the delicious Andalusian gastronomy at restaurants which offer the best of it.

Although the economic crisis is noticeable, Marbella is more affected by European economies than the Spanish, as society is very heterogeneous..

An we ask ourselves, what makes of living in Marbella a lifestyle?

Starting by one of the most important points, living in Marbella is healthy.

It isn’t as noisy as living in a big city (London or Madrid for example), and it isn’t as damaged by pollution, which is provoking so many problems currently.

However, it has a great comercial activity, like it’s gained to be the most touristic place for German or British.

Furthermore, it encourages the practice of sport as much for kids as for adults with several outdoors activities or marathons.

Similarly, there’s a great cultural offer in the local theater and FNAC, which organizes cultural events for partners or no partners each month, in which it’s included film screenings, workshops, writers signings or presentations.

We consider Marbella as a very beautiful place to live, while it may appear redundant..

But if we have to choose an area:

 Which are the best areas to do it?

In luxury homes in which apart from having the seafront promenade a few steps away and all the comercial streets, there’s also an extended offer in different areas- somehow more centric-as it could be Playa de la Fontanilla in Camilo José Cela street.

Wide furnitured flats or empty which offer the best views.

There are many near places as them could be the Hotel El Fuerte, Puente  Alameda, apart from many restaurants.

These are really perfect homes for the lyfestyle which offers this place: quiet but at the same time dynamic.

Another of the advantages is that these areas are also very near from the sports marina, which is another spot for nightlife.

Where in the hot nights of summer or spring you can enjoy outdoors of the best fried fish.

Apart from that, this is cradle of the area’s fishermen.

Living in Marbella

On the other hand, the Milla de Oro (Golden Mile), it covers a great area of Marbella’s beach road, reaching until the own Puerto Banús and it’s one of the most wanted for finding a home.

Apart from that, it fits to all kinds of tastes accorfing to the customer who applies for it: from apartments with stunning views, villas and paired huge homes on the seafront or very near to the most popular golf links and their enthusiasts.

Or whoever who wants a little bit of tranquility, good neighbours and many kilometers for long walks.

Somehow near from the mountain if you choose Nagüeles.

The truth is that despite being a little bit away from the centre of Marbella, you can get there in less than twenty minutes with light traffic.  Apart from that there’s an easy access by public transport.

There’s also, ease to find small shopping malls by the different areas,

As it’s La Colonia mall in the area of Guadalmina, if you don’t want to go to the own Corte Inglés, in the very heart of Puerto Banús.

As we’ve been able to check, Marbella is a place to consider to be more than a transit point.

Something further than a beach place where spending great weeks during summer months.

It’s a place to enjoy of parties at warmer months, of its weather, its beaches’ diversity or the beach bars.

But also to spend light temperatures during the winter, although sometimes it surprises us with heavy rain days.

There’s also a very diverse cultural offer.

For example, in this December month there are different events to collaborate or enjoy as them are Christmas street markets.

(They encouraged: Hotel Kempinski, Volubilis …) or the supportive races by Cruz Roja in the centre of Plaza Marbella

La Sala will make musical tributes to Adele, Michael Bublé and New Jersey Boys in the new Live Lounge.

The best restaurants, are already making their offer for New Year’s Eve dinner or parties to receive 2018 .

Or also you can go for a stroll to Parque Alameda, and the Nativity scene open to the public.

Everything’s ready.
