Marbella is one of the original Costa del Sol resorts, famous by becoming a playground for Europe's rich and famous. Only 30 minutes away from Malaga airport, it is very easy to reach and is a popular destination for millions of people every year.
Throughout the old town, small plazas lined with local bars and orange trees add to the traditional feel. The Sierra Bermeja Mountains rise up behind the resort and are ideal for exploring by 4x4 or on foot; plenty of viewpoints provide opportunities to see the two and a half mile coastal spread that is Marbella.

There is a famous tennis club, four restaurants, a bar, two coffee shops, a supermarket and a car rental...this all within the urbanisation!

The easiest way to get here from abroad is by taking a flight to Malaga airport. The airport has been renovated some years ago and offers plenty of opportunities to rent a car or catch a bus or find a taxi (we definitely recommend getting a rental car). Once in the car, the drive to El Rosario is quite straightforward and takes no more than half an hour. Once you have made your decision and made the booking, we will supply you with a detailed map of how to find the villa.

Here are a few highlight which we think might interest you...if you don't find what you are looking for do not despair! We probably just haven't thought of listing it here!
Horseback Riding: If you love to horseback ride through beautiful scenery, canter along deserted, golden sandy beaches and explore miles of sweet smelling natural pine forest, then you have come to the right place..
Surfing: Tarifa has become known as 'the Wind Capital' for many different reasons. Its wind reliability probably tops them all. It is very difficult to have two consecutive non windy days!
Hiking: The landscapes of rural Andalucía can be breath-taking and one of the best ways to appreciate their diversity and beauty is on foot.
