* Indoor activities for children

Last week one of our readers asked: “As it is expected to rain much of this week are there any activities for a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old? Such as an indoor play centre?”

Not that it will rain next week, but it certainly did last week. However, it´s still good to know what there is to do in Marbella when the weather is either too hot or too wet. Feel free to comment on this page if you have something to say.

* Marbella villa for rent

One of our readers is offering a beautiful villa for rent in the Marbella area. This is a fairly large home that can accommodate a very large family, which is a bit hard to find outside of the standard 3-4 bedroom homes. If it´s too big, you may want to consider splitting it with another family and friends.
