Some time ago, we spent week in the south of Spain. I am sure, that all of you have heard about “Costa del Sol”, which is a famous coast in Andalusia. We spent our vacation in Marbella, Spain.
This time we did not want to book a hotel, we decided to stay in a private apartment in the city. We really wanted to relax, that’s why we choose a place with private space. Our apartment in Marbella, Spain was equipped with a saltwater swimming pool and a terrace with a nice view over the city and Marbella beach. We enjoyed some nice evenings on the terrace and tried to image how it would feel like to live in Marbella, Spain forever. For some cozy nights in togetherness I can highly recommend a glass of wine, with “jamon iberico” and Spanish cheese !
