Spain: Spain's 'sunshine coast' is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations. With an average of 320 days of blue sky annually, it is perfect as a summer holiday or as a winter destination for golfers, walkers and those wishing to pursue out -door activities. Families are particularly well catered for, with myriad attractions, restaurants and of course miles of beaches. Children are not just tolerated but welcomed by the friendly Spanish people.
Despite the march of development, the area still has the ambience of Andalucía, the most 'Spanish' of all regions and you do not have to venture far from your holiday home to encounter local ferias, fiestas and romerias - the scent of Jasmine is in the air, inexpensive wine is flowing freely- come and enjoy!
Only 10 minutes drive away is the wonderful Nueva Andalucia and Puerto Banus, overlooking three exclusive golf courses: Aloha Golf, Las Brisas and Los Naranjos and is therefore ideally located for golfing.
Internationally known as a 'jet set' play ground, Puerto Banus is where you can admire the luxurious yachts of the rich and famous or enjoy a cocktail in one of the many sophisticated bars. There is a wide variety of top class restaurants featuring cuisines from around the world. Or if your purse can stretch to it, shop until you drop in the many designer boutiques.
The famous Casino is 5 minutes walk from Puerto Banus, if you can keep up with the high rollers give it a try. Even nearer is the chic bar, La Sala popular late in the evening with the ' beautiful people'
Old Marbella is only 15 mins drive away with its pretty Plaza de los Naranjos, beautifully preserved white Moorish houses and geranium-filled balconies.
The area features many different beaches with an eclectic mix of beach bars and up-market beach clubs to suite every one's budget but be warned prices in the beach clubs of Puerto Banus are not for the faint hearted.
The area is well placed for exploring beautiful Andalucia.The famous white villages are well worth a visit and also Ronda with its breathtaking gorge and the oldest bullring in Spain, still in use!
There are many national parks just on the doorstep and from December to April you can ski in the Sierra Nevada, 2.5 hours drive. Further afield, for the more adventurous Morocco, with its souks and third world charm is only two hours away.
