|City centre living in Marbella, between the mountains and the sea.|
If you wish for an urban lifestyle with more than a touch of Spanish charm, Marbella's city centre might be the place for you. Here, as in any Spanish city, you will find mostly flats available, mainly in high-rise buildings.
Be advised that Spanish towns and cities are noisy and Marbella is no exception. However, double-glazed windows can create a peaceful haven in the midst of the city's hustle and bustle. And there are numerous conveniences to "doing as the Spaniards" and living in the centre of town.
To begin with expect to find all amenities virtually on your doorstep. A school for your children should be within walking distance, and your neighbourhood should have a health centre, church and other community institutions available to residents.
Parking is a consideration though. As it is tight, you are best off purchasing a home that comes with a parking space, or purchasing parking separately if necessary.
