Marbella is known for being one of the most beautiful destinations in Southern Europe. It is situated by the Mediterranean Sea and is protected by mountains, which gives the city a wonderful climate throughout the year. It is 40 minutes away from Malaga Airport, making it very easy to access from most European capitals.
