summer course&accomodation

by Jma86

Hi there,

This summer I'll be following a course Spanish in Marbella for one month. I need a place to stay, I prefere something with a lot of privacy, does any one have ideas where I can look for a app. or studio for rent?
Also, can anybody tell me (who has been there or lives there) how it's like. I would love to know the places where it's quite and not so many tourists..
So, if anyone can help me, let me know!

It's hard to avoid tourists in Marbella. But you could try about 10 km's west in San Pedro which must be the least touristic part of Marbella county. There is a good bus service if you don't have a car

by daarth to what Marbella is like, there are lots of good pages here in the Marbella travel guide

Maybe you would want to try to find a place near to your course location. Marbella is a large city that stretches along the coast and goes inland so you may find it a good idea to start your search near to your course location.
The old part of Marbella called "Casco Antiguo" is central and many people live in this area and of course there are tourists. Many head for the Orange Square - Plaza de los Naranjos - but you can find a quiet side street not far from here. If you Google something like "Alquiler Piso Casco Antiguo Marbella" you can see some ideas. But of course many of these will be looking for long term rentals not one month. I do not know your budget and minimum requirements for accomodation but for example this one I just saw on Google is a 'possible'.:

Travel Tips for Marbella

Marbella history

by Carmela71

Our first though, when we first hear about Marbella is rich people, expensive yachts and cars.

But we do not imagine that this city exists from the 1600 BC. The Romans founded a village called Salduba (that’s why many urbanisation’s and schools have this name). The actual old town has been constructed over the old Romans ruins.

Around the 711 when the Muslims came to Spain, Salduba converted in Marbil-la a prosper Mediterranean city, until the 1485 that the Catholic kings reconquered the city and the actual layout of Marbella was design with its churches, bigger houses and it is said that the actual name of Marbella comes from this time.

Among the Beaches you will find in Marbella are the Playa de Venus - Playa de Bajadilla - Playa Fontanilla (next to Port of Marbella) - Nagueles - El Faro - La Venus. If you just want to sit and relax on the beach, you can rent umbrellas or rent a lounge chair for the day at 4 Euros. At any given time people were sun-bathing, swimming, walking along the shore collecting shells -simply enjoying MARBELLA'S BEACHES. Also where there were restaurants, you could watch sardines smoking in little sand-filled boats, being tenderly cared for by the chef.
Another fun thing is that some of the showers on the beaches are elephant-shaped with swimmers showering under their trunks. What a grerat idea!

Mirador de Juanar

by Carmela71

The magnificent mountain known as 'La Concha' (the shell) is part of a range that extends across the skyline to the village of Ojén.

Take the road to Ojén and turn left into the beautiful park called 'Juanar', where the mountainside is covered in pine trees, pinsapos, walnut and olive trees, as well as wild orchids - and some wild animals, including Hispanic wild goats, eagles and Royal owls.

At one of its highest points stands 'El Mirador' where you can look down on one of the most spectacular views of Marbella and its surroundings.

Mini cruise ship - Mini crucero

by spanishguy

You can "travel" between Puerto Banús and the town centre by ship too. The boat leaves from the Marbella's marina to Puerto Banus and it returns. The price is 8 euros for adults and 4 for children the round trip. If you want just one trip it costs 5 euros for adults and 2 for children. The journey takes 30 minutes.

También puedes "viajar" entre Puerto Banús y el centro de la ciudad en barco. El crucero sale desde el puerto deportivo de Marbella hasta Puerto Banús y después regresa. El precio de ida y vuelta son 8 euros para adultos y 4 para niños. Si prefieres sólo un trayecto cuesta 5 euros para adultos y 2 para niños.

Delicious food and tapas!

by tere1 about Chiringuito Fantastico

The " Chiringuitos" are small restaurnats on the beach, serving tapas and food. This Chiringuito is an incredible place, family owned , with an open air setting under a tached roof.

They serve calamari, shrimp al ajillo, and other fish an seafood, very well prepared and always very fresh. Their sangria is excellent and the homemade french fries are the best I ever had! Love everything here!
