The clocks goes back. The days are shorter and nights are longer. The weather has cooled and there has been some much needed rain. You get this wonderful feeling of wanting to curl up on the sofa in front of the chimney with a warm cup of hot chocolate. This is the perfect time of year to enjoy the other side to Marbella and put your wellington boots on and take the family to one of the many the natural parks surrounding Marbella for example El Juanar and collect pine cones and wood for the chimney and admire the colourful fallen leaves. Marbella Trails in El Juanar
There is an old popular custom called El Tostón (The Roasting of Chestnuts) the last week of October and first week of November, where family and friends meet at the various white villages around Marbella and take a day trip into countryside to collect chestnuts and roast them around a fire. This can go on all night long, in typical Spanish style. El Tostón (Roasting Chestnuts) - Marbella Event. Halloween is also enjoyed during this autumn season and is a fun American celebration which all the family can participate in, especially with our little ones. Here are a few ideas you can enjoy all together - Family Halloween. This celebration coinsides with a more serious Spanish national custom on the 1st of November which is the Day of the Saints which honours the dead All Saints Day Fiesta.

Throughout the months of autumn we have some spectacular colourful sunsets to enjoy whilst sipping a refreshing cocktail on the beach or from your terrace. Also the countryside is full of variety of colours with some amazing nature trails to discover and of course we live in sunny Marbella with amazing sun filled days to still enjoy the promenade, the popular beaches and trendy chiringuitos. 

But first of all this autumn do not forget to visit San Pedro de Alcantara this October, and celebrate its colourful fair San Pedro Feria 2018!

Summer is here in Marbella! The perfect time of the year to enjoy the delights of the beach and the sea all day as well as the al fresco evening dinners and night club parties from sunset to sunrise. 

The summer in Marbella brings a multitude of wonderful events and celebrations. We begin the summer with the Marbella Feria; a spectrum of colour, fun, culture, dancing and excellent tapas. These festivities commemorate the reconquest of Marbella by the Catholic Kings in 1485 and tourists and citizens alike enjoy all the charm of a traditional and colourful Andalusian festival. This is the Spanish link to Marbella's Feria event starting on the 6th of June.

Many popular beach venues and nightclubs take this opportunity to pull out all the stops and celebrate the summer with spectacular innovative parties. There is an abundance of activities to explore for all ages.

We really like to celebrate with you our Marbella summer and invite you to have a look at all our beachside options available for sale: Beachside Properties

Please feel free to drop in to our office on Marbella’s Golden Mile. We always appreciate hearing from you. And enjoy the summertime!
