Weekend on the Costa del Sol

If you’re in need of a little warm sunshine in the round-up to Christmas, why not spend a weekend on the Costa del Sol this December? Not only is the weather good, you can enjoy some festive spirit along with world-class culture, start your Christmas shopping and get in a round or two of golf. Read on to discover how to make the very best of a short break next month.


Get into the Christmas spirit

The sun might be shining and the temperature around 20 degrees, but Christmas is definitely in the air on the Costa del Sol. Make the most of the festive spirit by enjoying the Christmas lights, sparkling in all the resorts.

Don’t miss those in Malaga where Calle Larios has one of the most impressive Christmas light displays in Spain. And while you’re enjoying your December weekend on the Costa del Sol, be sure to stroll around Marbella Old Town in the evening to see the Christmas decorations in the squares, narrow streets and shop windows.


Get in some Christmas shopping

Christmas markets are perfect for buying gifts for the festive season. Lots take place at different resorts on the Costa del Sol and sell arts and crafts, vintage goods and typical Christmas produce. In Marbella, you can visit the traditional Christmas Market in La Virginia and the arts and crafts market in Puerto Banús.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for at the markets, visit the shops in Marbella.  From luxury boutiques to unusual shops, you’ll find something for everyone.


Get in some world-class art

Malaga has some world-class museums so make sure you combine your weekend on the Costa del Sol with a touch of art. The highlights in December include:

•  A brand new collection at the Pompidou Centre  based on modern utopias.

•  Cubism and Juan Gris at the Carmen Thyssen Museum with work by Maria Blanchard also featured.

•  Francisco Leiro’s larger than life sculptures at CAC Malaga where you can also see other cutting-edge contemporary art.


Get in some golf

And how better to spend a weekend on the Costa del Sol before Christmas? Make the most of the sunshine and pleasant temperatures – perfect weather for golf – and of course, the best prices for a round. December is low-season for golf so look out for some exceptional green fee deals

And if you’re looking for accommodation too, why not stay at one of the best boutique hotels in Marbella? Take a look at our special promotions – you’ll be pleasantly surprised!  We look forward to welcoming you for your weekend on the Costa del Sol!

Andalucia`s Gateway

It always makes a good pub quiz question. What is the geographical centre of Andalucía? Historically, and semi-officially, Antequera (near the northern border of Málaga province) is considered to hold that honour – at least for tourist brochure purposes. However, earlier this year a report by the National Centre for Geographical Information argued that the exact centre is in the small Córdoba municipality of Monturque. Other key cities in the region have their own claims to fame: Sevilla, the official capital; Cádiz, the oldest city in the western world; Málaga, the Andalucian capital of international tourism… 


Golf and Tennis… Marbella’s Sporting Haven

When it comes to golfMarbella is recognised as Spain’s premier destination. The town has the highest number of courses of any municipality in Spain, but it is just as much (even more) about quality as it is about quantity. Several of the courses have hosted European Tour events (as well as the World Cup in 1973 and 1989) while others such as Río Real are regular venues for premier national and international amateur tournaments. The same applies to tennis
