In the height of summer, and certainly after the sun sets, the beaches and beach clubs of Marbella and Puerto Banus are a lively affair, attracting a fun-seeking crowd, drawn by sophisticated dining options, glamourous yachts and trendy nightclubs.
By day, the Old Town of Marbella is a fascinating mixture of whitewashed buildings, narrow streets and stylish boutiques, ripe for exploration, and, at its heartbeat, the enchanting Plaza de los Naranjos with lively cafés, fragrant orange trees, and Castilian Renaissance architecture in abundance. With a number of Spain’s finest golf courses in the region and over 300 days of sunshine annually, it is not hard to see why this area has cultivated an international reputation as a year-round resort of distinction.
Overlooking the fairways of several golf courses, Villa Zara is nestled in verdant countryside, perched on a hillside framing the undulating scene that unfolds below. The tranquil and bucolic surroundings are a soothing contrast to the busier life found on the coast, and the villa has been orientated to benefit from the sunlight long into the evenings with great care and attention taken to ensure a peaceful and gentle setting. As the palm trees gently sway in the breeze that drifts through the countryside, the infinity edged pool is the best spot from which to appreciate the views.
