To Beach or Not to Beach...That is the Question

So, where is the best place for families to live in Marbella?

The starting point is to firs ask yourself what lifestyle you are looking for. Some absolutely want to be walking distance from the beach, while others imagine themselves nestled in the hills with a view of the Mediterranean. 

Generally speaking, there are three broad categories of real estate options on the Costa del Sol:

  • Beachside
  • Golf Areas
  • Mountainside 

The prices of Marbella family real estate vary based on what your personal needs are. Generally speaking, you will find larger properties for your money the further away from the popular beaches. That's not to say that the mountains are necessarily inexpensive by comparison, however, you will find a greater selection of options of larger properties. If you're not sure which type of property you are interested in, read more information about the Pros & Cons of Property Locations, below.

Do you have a question about Marbella family real estate or other properties on the Costa del Sol? For answers directly from the community, use our Ask a Question feature. We'd be glad to put it out to the local community for you so you can get answers directly from locals who have lived or vacationed in the area for years.

the most important thing about buying in marbella

One consistent message we have heard from nearly all families is: DON'T RUSH into things! 

While it is true that there is more activity in the market this year, keep in mind that there are many, many properties in Marbella and anyone who says something to the contrary may not be acting in your best interests.

While it is true that supply fluctuates, particularly during the peak summer months, you will generally be better off by taking the time to understand and experience the various neighbourhoods, school options and differences among them.

If you are not families with the area, find a friend, agent or company you trust to provide you with objective information of the market and the pros and cons of each neighbourhood.

Below are some recommended agencies that we've been in touch with which have a family-focused orientation on Marbella.
