The outdoor lifestyle, from playing sport and socialising to relaxing and entertaining in your own home’s terrace or garden is one of the things that makes Marbella and surroundings so appealing, and it can be done virtually the whole year round – ensuring that an al fresco meal or barbecue is comfortable almost every month, and usually comes accompanied by fantastic sea, golf or mountain views.
The climate, setting and vegetation of the Costa del Sol make it an area of great natural beauty, with landscapes that range from classic Mediterranean heath and pine groves to lush semitropical valleys and even temperate parkland zones. There’s something here for everyone, from formal grounds and landscaped gardens to minimalist outdoor architecture and even almost pristine natural greenery.
Now a terrace may be lovely, but having the space, privacy and lush greenery of your own garden – complete with swimming pool and such features as gazebos, poolside bars and even outdoor kitchens – is the ultimate Marbella luxury. Add a swimming pool, fire pit or those delightful little spots from which to enjoy the view, and it’s not surprising to see that gardens are gaining in popularity once more.
Here are some examples of Winkworth garden properties for sale in Marbella.
