* Documentary of summer in Marbella

One of our readers is looking for some help with the production of a movie on Marbella lifestyles. Maybe you are interested. She writes: “I am an actress and live in marbella and I have been asked to do a documentary on life (specifically summer) in Marbella. I am going to film during August (Ocean Club, nikki beach, puerto banus etc). I have had some offers from film crews and channels in england but I was wondering if anyone in Marbella was interested in getting involved. Thank you” Click here to read more...

Shopping in Marbella

We´ve created a new section in our Family Forum – Shopping! We have had so many pages created by our readers on where to shop as well as advertising their own goods, that we had to create a special section dedicated to shopping in Marbella in addition to our own Marbella Shopping recommendations.

If you have a great store or shopping experience to share, please tell us about it. Click here to read more...

* Good Morning Marbella!

We have been having some amazing weather on the Costa del Sol lately. Even the kids say that it feels like summer. People are out on the beach with their umbrellas, buckets and shovels, exercising and getting fit for their bikinis, which all adds to the ambience of good summer vibes. If you´re heading out to Marbella soon, you should definitely pack your swimsuit and summer gear. Also, you may want to follow me on my morning walks where I take shots of the environment I am in and post a quick write up on what I saw. Click here to read more...

* Wine center in Ronda

We received an interesting review from a family who visited the Sangre de Ronda wine cellars. If you are a wine lover, you shouldn´t miss this “bodega” which is set on lovely territory in the mountain village of Ronda. Only thing is, if you are wine tasting, you may want to stay the night in Ronda. The roads are windy back down to Marbella and you may not make it back! Click here to read more...
