Marbella needs no introduction, having made a name for itself several decades ago among the top Spanish seaside resorts. A mix of modernity and tradition that has retained its authenticity and glamours found in abundance in the narrow streets of its old town, Casco Antiguo. The long-established meeting place of the international jet set, Marbella is filled with luxury boutiques, traditional and hip restaurants and luxury marinas like Port Banús. It also enjoys 320 days of sunshine per year, and boasts the highest density of golf courses in Europe. What more is there to add? Perhaps the fact that there are 23 beaches along its almost 17 miles of coastline… A particularly flattering set of credentials that has earned it a place in the TOP 20 destinations to watch in the BARNES Global Property Handbook 2021. Inutile de préciser que les locations saisonnières sont l’un des meilleurs sésames pour découvrir les charmes de ce littoral béni. Voilà pourquoi Jeremy Lauwers, directeur du bureau de BARNES Marbella, a préparé rien que pour vous une sélection des plus belles villas encore disponibles pour l’été à venir.
It goes without saying that seasonal rentals are one of the best ways to discover the charms of this beautified coastline. Which is why Jeremy Lauwers, Director of the BARNES Marbella office, has put together a selection of the finest villas still available for this summer.
If you’re thinking of renting on the seafront, you might as well go big! And as luck might have it, we have the perfect villa in mind, set on the beach at the heart of Marbella’s Golden Mile. Just over 200 yards from the legendary Puente Romano hotel: in other words, the location doesn't get much better than this!
Your neighbours will include the most exclusive beaches, Michelin-starred hotels and luxury boutiques. But perhaps you’d prefer the comfort of the 5 bedrooms overlooking the garden, the interior design by the firm Pedro Peña, the swimming pool, the rooftop lounge, the jacuzzi, bar and outdoor kitchen... Or even just the view! A privilege available to rent from €8,500 per week (*).
Sticking to the beach, we also have this delightful beach house, which, as the name suggests, is built right on the waterfront.
We simply can't resist this villa where you can wake every day to the fresh sea air, and watch the waves as you drink your morning coffee with breakfast or with a cocktail in hand as the sun goes down... Pure bliss. Interspersed with a dip in the pool, of course. In addition to its 6 bedrooms, the property comes with a 1,615 sq ft rooftop terrace with an 8-person jacuzzi and a bar/barbecue corner. Complete with a 360° view of the sea and the mountains. The ideal place to find inspiration, to take in the sunset glass in hand, to dig into an alfresco dinner and to make the most of the Mediterranean lifestyle. The Beach House is located in Elviria, around ten minutes from Marbella and Puerto Banús. Available to rent from €6,000 per week.
Now for a change of scene with this, a true ode to high-tech luxury with its 20 rooms totalling almost 13,000 sq ft. ‘Transcendent’ is without doubt the most fitting description of the property, starting with the heavenly rooftop pool.
We won't list all the details of the lavish reception rooms nor the seven suites, but suffice it to say that there’s no shortage of comfort. Something you’ll quickly realise when we tell you that the basement level comprises a professional gym, a wine cellar, a games room, a sauna and steam room, a home cinema, a 4-car garage, and an independent bedsit. And the exteriors don’t fall short either, surrounding the villa with tropical gardens and a second pool with its own dining room. This property and its magnificent sea views are available to rent from €25,000 per week.
Let’s round off our tour of Marbella with this newly built villa at the heart of the Golden Mile, less than 200 yards from the beaches.
We’d be hard pushed to pick our favourite feature: the 5 suites or the breathtaking rooftop terrace? The pool or the patios? And what about its architecture and décor? A clear 10/10 from us, available from €6,000 per week in a location that allows you to go without the car for your entire vacation.
Don't say you’re not tempted!
