Technically it’s Autumn here in Marbella and the Costa del Sol, Spain, but you wouldn’t think so right now! The sun is shining, the skies are blue, golfers are teeing off across the multitude of golf courses this coast has to offer, many are enjoying walks along the sea front, hiking in the beautiful mountains, alfresco dining and more! In short, whether you’re here for business or pleasure, October (even November and into December) on the Costa del Sol is really just an extended Summer. And that’s just one of the many reasons living, working, and retiring here is a luxury like no other. So if you, like so many others, have been considering a move to Marbella, Guadalmina, Benahavis, Estepona, Fuengirola, Nueva Andalucia, Sotogrande, or elsewhere along the Costa del Sol, now is the perfect time to make it happen.

Spain, too, has announced changes to local Covid restrictions. As of October 1, the majority of Andalusian regions (including the Costa del Sol) moved down to a level 0 Covid alert, meaning that Covid-related restrictions in regards to curfews, capacity limitations, business closures, mask-wearing and social distancing, although still perhaps recommended, have formally been reduced or completely removed.
