Watch Davis Cup Tennis in Marbella

Marbella has been chosen to host the Davis Cup World Group matches between Great Britain and Spain from the 2nd to the 4th of February 2018. This means that some of the UK and Spain’s best players will be competing on the courts at the Puente Romano tennis club over three days. There will be singles and doubles games over five “rubbers”, with the winning team needing to win three or more of the five games.

This is the first time since 2013 that Spain has hosted a Davis Cup tie and the matchup between Great Britain and Spain hasn’t been seen since the 1980s. The UK has been seeded third in the World Group, but Spain are fearsome opponents, having won the title four times. Spain boasts an excellent pool of quality players to choose from, including world number one Rafael Nadal. With Andy Murray suffering a hip injury at Wimbledon, it remains to be seen whether he will be fit to play in the team.  However, this year both teams got knocked out in the quarter finals, so they have a point to prove.

Marbella was competing against other destinations for this great sporting event, but the great clay court at the Puente Romano, the lovely climate in the south of Spain and good transport links made it the winning choice. It will be very popular with holiday makers too for a bit of winter sun, golf, great restaurants and of course some great holiday rentals!

Davis Cup ties are always very popular with spectators, so there have been recommendations to extend the Puente Romano grandstands to accommodate around 9,000 fans. British Tennis team members will get a priority ticket sale for their allocation and […]

Our Pick of Holiday Properties with Sea Views

We are so lucky here on the Costa del Sol to have 150km of coastline, with great beaches, long stretches of seafront promenades and lots of options for dining, or sipping a cold drink right on the sand. The Mediterranean is always nearby, normally calm and without big tides, it’s a great place to swim, paddle, or simply listen to the soothing sounds of the waves.

There’s something special about looking out over the vast blue expanses of the sea, so it’s no surprise that our beachside holiday homes and properties with sea views are some of the most popular.

Here, we’ve chosen three of our favourite properties with sea views to give you some inspiration. However, we have many more holiday homes with amazing views, so please browse our website to see the full list.

Holiday like a Celebrity in Marbella

Marbella has been synonymous with celebrities since the “jet set” arrived in the 50s and 60s, bringing movie stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Sean Connery, royalty and millionaires to this sleepy fishing village. It is still a favourite with celebrities due to the amazing weather, night life and incredible villas and you can often spot celebrities in Puerto Banus, at the beach clubs and dining in the best restaurants. You can also holiday like a celeb with our fantastic luxury villas!

One of the biggest celebrity events of the year is the Global Gift Foundation’s gala on the 17th of July, with Eva Longoria being one of the key VIPs, alongside Spanish actress María Bravo. Tickets are pricy, but it is an amazing night, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous.

A trip to one of the best beach clubs will often see you relaxing and partying next to soap stars from Eastenders, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks and reality stars of TOWIE, Made in Chelsea and Geordie Shore.  We recommend Nikki Beach, Ocean Club and La Sala by the Sea.

A good place for eating, drinking, partying and celebrity spotting all year round is La Sala in Puerto Banus. It regularly hosts footballers, with Birmingham City FC spotted there in April and Ashley Cole and John Terry visiting the restaurant, alongside stars of the small screen such as TOWIE.

If you want to holiday like a celebrity, book one of these stunning Costa del Sol villas for a luxurious stay in the Costa del Sol.
