Costa Del Sol Lifestyle

The Organised Infrastructure

More than most, the Costa Del Sol property market is as much about lifestyle as it is about the homes themselves. This region and its different residential zones offer a great many lifestyle options, from beach, sport and nightlife glamour to culture, nature and a cosmopolitan social scene. Popular locations include Marbella, Guadalmina, Estepona, Casares and Sotogrande. Choosing the right home in the right area helps to realise your lifestyle ambitions and enjoy a unique way of life to the full.

The Costa del Sol has a very well organised infrastructure with the Autopista del Sol providing quick access from Malaga to Estepona, Sotogrande and beyond to Gibraltar.
The old N340 coast road is a little slower but offers some lovely sea views as it winds its way along the coast. Links between Granada, Seville and Cordoba are easily accessible for those wishing to venture further into Andalucia and the rest of Spain.

The International airport of Málaga has regular flights to most major cities and is located just 10 minutes from Malaga City centre, and within 30 minutes by car from most other popular resorts on the coast. The new expansion to the airport has also made the whole experience more comfortable and opened the region to new routes from all over the world.

History And Culture

The area’s history dates back to the Phoenicians and has since been inhabited by Greeks, Romans and Moors, all of whom have left their mark on the architecture and culture of the region.

The Costa del Sol is as much steeped in culture as any other region of Andalucia; from Picasso, to bullfighting, flamenco to the colourful ferias, the region has an immense cultural offering.

Malaga Airport is the gateway to the Costa del Sol, 40 minutes from Marbella. It is Spain's 4th busiest airport and offers easy direct connection to Europe ́s airports. There are even direct flights from further afield like the Middle East, USA and Canada.

Gibraltar Airport is a great access point if you live in Estepona, Sotogrande areas and only a 20 minute drive offering direct flights to the UK.


From coastal Mediterranean cooking to the produce and dishes of inland towns, the cuisine of Málaga and the Costa del Sol is rich in variety and flavours. Restaurants, beach bars, tapas bars, tours of wineries where you can taste the very best wines and Michelin-star chefs. Delight yourself with the flavours of the Costa del Sol.

The diverseness of the cultures that reside here, coupled with the high volume of tourism, means that you can expect to find any style or nationality of cuisine.

Situated on the Mediterranean, expect to savour fish freshly caught that day, combined with fresh ingredients from the ‘campo’.

Basically, no matter what region you are in, Spanish cuisine is always full of character: rich meat stews, quirky platters of fried fish and teasing tapas that will have you shouting to the waiter to bring more.

Leisure Activities

With millions of people annually visiting the Costa del Sol it’s not surprising that there is a comprehensive infrastructure of leisure facilities and activities.

The coast boasts one of the highest concentrations of world-class golf courses, to the extent that it is often dubbed "The Costa del Golf". There are over 70 courses in total, from beginner and easy courses, through the elite courses like Valderrama in Sotogrande, which plays host each year to the Volvo Masters.
