As this unusual August draws to a close, it’s time to think about your next holiday in Marbella. Travelling has become something of a challenge since the arrival of covid-19 in our lives, and as a result, some people have made the decision to stay at home. But for those planning to get away, some destinations have all the right ingredients. Read on to discover six compelling reasons why you should take your autumn break in Marbella this year.

Fresh air

And lots of it. Being outdoors is preferable for this year’s holidays and Marbella with its pleasant climate and sea breezes offers the perfect exterior. Autumn brings warm temperatures, plenty of sunshine and the opportunity to breathe in Mediterranean and mountain air.

Surrounded by nature

An autumn break in Marbella takes you into the heart of nature. The resort sits in the midst of stunning mountain scenery with miles of sandy beaches along the coast. Make the absolute most of nature by choosing accommodation on a golf course. Rio Real Boutique Hotel, for example, has a privileged location among mature trees and immaculate greens, but within just 5 minutes of the resort itself 

Easy social distancing

The most famous tourist destinations are quiet this year, but even so social distancing isn’t always easy. Not so in Marbella where the wide open spaces, especially on the beaches and in nature mean keeping your distance is no problem at all.

Private accommodation

This autumn in Marbella, you’ll want somewhere quiet to stay. With few other guests and plenty of space just for you. Boutique hotels come into their own in the current scenario and the Rio Real Boutique Hotel ticks all the boxes – just 30 rooms, all spacious and with their own private terrace. And in the midst of a golf course where nature reigns supreme.
