Maybe the first day starts like this: sitting in the shady patio under orange oleander blossoms blue Jacaranda and red bougainvillea, feeling the warmth, catching the scent of the flowers, enjoying their first coffee and planning the day. Meanwhile, the children discovered the swimming pool (10x5m) ("Mama, Mama! There are dolphins in the water!") And the laughter vibrates through the house (~ 160sqm over 12 rooms, with two fireplaces and a stove for the winter months. Each bathroom has its own toilet and a private shower).
You may decide to do the shopping first and walk the 750m through shady avenues up to the supermarket (Supersol). Or: the car can safely stay on the property, because beyond a certain purchase value many supermarkets deliver home.
After the purchases have arrived at home and some are housed in the huge refrigerator, you decide against a lunch at home (the first day is too early to try the fully equipped kitchen - see picture). So collect the kids (now busy playing football in the garden) and you leisurely stroll the 350m to the beach where you can choose one of 5 restaurants (see pictures).
The restaurants are popular with locals (Spaniards and foreigners) throughout the year. The service is friendly and the selection goes from fresh fish dishes to Spanish tapas to Italian dishes - plus fresh salad and great Spanish wines.
After that, the kids want to let off steam in the water, and you just want to lie in the shade and look out to sea. Both are possible. Either take a digestive walk to the sheltered bays of Puerto Banus (20 minutes walk - see picture) or you can rent right on the beach San Pedro beach chairs and umbrella (see picture). Most of the beaches in the area have showers, toilets and changing facilities.
In the late afternoon (it's still hot) and back in the garden, you're now under a palm tree (the garden is home to five palm trees) or on top of the sundeck (where eye-catching bright green budgies fly by), or you can see it Kids in the swimming pool and maybe at the same time wondering how the dark blue from the pool turns into a play of colors with purple and red bougainvillea, white and red oleander, yellow and orange roses, cactus (they turn yellow in June) - and all under the light blue summer sky (since 2011 the sun shines mostly continuously from January to November).
Meanwhile, the men sit with a cool beer in front of the 55 inch TV and watch a sports show (we have the normal German-speaking Free SAT TV channels and a DVD player, which is perhaps suitable for children's DVDs brought).
Everyone has a lot of space here.
For the evening planning we have to offer: boutiques, marina, a department store (El Corte Ingles) and countless bars in Puerto Banus (20 minutes walk along the beach or 5 minutes drive). If one skips Puerto Banus and heads for Marbella, one can explore the lanes of the old town of Marbella, meet at the Orange Plaza (Plaza de Naranjas) for dinner and then try the countless wine bars or perhaps visit a flamenco performance. Or they stay in the villa and sit outside under the sunshade - in the background the illuminated palm trees (see picture), the swimming pool and the barbeque grill delicious fish.
