Marbella, Spain - A Place in the Sun

2021 / Marbella, Spain Jean Johansson on 10 September 2021

Marbella, Spain Jean Johansson

Croydon based Clement and Tracy-Anne want to escape South London’s weather for the sunshine and glamour of Marbella in Southern Spain. With a budget of £250,000 they’ve asked Jean Johansson to find them perfect family holiday home. But will any of her properties impress the couple enough to put in an offer?

Marbella

What's the appeal?

Glamorous Marbella, which is just a thirty-minute drive from Malaga airport, is a favourite holiday destination for those in the UK. In fact, over three million Brits flock to this coastline in a given year, perhaps hoping to rub shoulders with the many celebrities who are rumoured to live here. And who can blame them? Protected by the Sierra Blanca mountain range, which gives the area its own very mild micro climate. The perfect conditions for enjoying the more than sixteen miles of golden sandy beaches, eight of which have blue flag status.
