Marbella properties with fireplaces

Marbella is known above all as a summer destination, but many come here out of the hotter season to play golf, enjoy the countryside and engage in outdoor activities in the gentle, warm weather. However, following retirees there is also a growing number of professionals, often with young families, moving to Marbella and its surroundings, as the living conditions, standard of schooling, amenities and also medical facilities are excellent.

What’s more, this is a great place to bring up children and enjoy a rare quality of life, complete with first class dining, shopping, culture, cosmopolitan social life and abundant nature and things to discover all around. The international airport offers daily flights to the main destinations and capitals across Europe and beyond, ensuring that you can work remotely and be where you have to be in a question of hours.

Year-round living in Marbella
For this reason, people buying property in Marbella are increasingly beginning to look not only for classic holiday apartments and large, luxurious second home villas, but also for permanent or semi-permanent homes, be they comfortable apartments and penthouses, spacious townhouses and stylish semi-detached villas perfect for family living, or sleek modern villas that combine refinement with the comforts of home.

Even though the winters here are mild, a fireplace is often part of this equation, for it creates a sense of warmth and cosiness regardless of whether the main heating is provided by an under floor system, warm air conditioning or central heating. Properties with fireplaces therefore add a certain element of homeliness even in Marbella, and they can take the form of a classic open fire, a modern gas fire or even an outdoor fire pit to make the terrace enjoyable in winter too.
