Another of the Exclusive Property Listings marketed by Nordica has sold within just a few weeks of being released on the market.
The penthouse in question is located Nueva Andalucía, the luxurious residential area of Marbella where Nordica is the specialist property agent with over 25 years of expertise that is hard to equal. The fact that it sold in a few weeks is telling. Why? Because although the Marbella real estate market is in a very healthy state right now it is still the exception rather than the rule to sell a luxurious home within such a short time. A more usual average lead time for a property of this kind and price class would be several months, so you can imagine the excitement of the owners at achieving such a fast sale once they had made up their mind to change homes.

Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson is having a brilliant year and is at the moment ranked as the world’s Number 4. On top of becoming the first Swedish golf champion after winning the 2016 British Open Championship at Royal Troon with a record score of 264, he has just won a silver medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics in the first year that golf became an Olympic event again after an absence of 112 years.
He only lost the gold to golfing buddy Justin Rose by a couple of points, somebody he describes as one of the best humoured golfers to play with on tour and the person you can depend on to make you laugh. Henrik is also renowned in the golfing world for being something of a practical joker himself, so it’s not difficult to imagine that although the Olympic final was a rather tense dual, both Rose and Stenson probably lightened the atmosphere with a few jokes on their way to the winners’ podium.

Visitors to Nueva Andalucía’s plush shopping centre Centro Plaza now have the opportunity to catch an imposing vista across leafy residential zones towards the mountains of Marbella and out to sea that previously was largely the preserve of owners of penthouse apartments.
The magnificent 360 degree views are available for everyone to enjoy on the rooftop terrace that was recently opened and has already become a popular addition to Centro Plaza in Nueva Andalucía.
This ‘mirador’ is more than simply a viewing point—as well as seating on which to relax there are information points with audio commentary available in both Spanish and English. Continue reading »

We love living in Spain—as our more than 30 years’ experience of selling villas and apartments in Marbella proves—but there are of course some aspects of the Spanish lifestyle that can be a little puzzling to people from other countries.
Principle amongst these are the opening hours—with many businesses closing in the afternoons for a long siesta, and not even considering the possibility of opening at weekends. This, of course leads to the question for many people holding down a full time job: “When can I talk to someone about my search for a home in Marbella? Whenever I have the time, the estate agents are closed.” Look no further than Nordica Sales & Rentals—we’re open when you need us!
We know people live busy lives, so first and foremost we make sure our working hours are convenient to our clients. In fact, the Nordica Sales & Rentals main sales office remains open seven days a week from 9.30am to 7pm—without siesta. Continue reading »

Nueva Andalucía’s ‘Big Three’ golf clubs of Las Brisas, Aloha and Los Naranjos may take the plaudits from international golfers, but the unique course of La Dama de Noche provides an alternative golfing experience right next to Puerto Banús.
This is the course whose emerald fairways can be glimpsed from the main coastal road as you approach the marina from Marbella, and also visible are the floodlight pylons that make it somewhere rather unique to play a round or two. La Dama de Noche was in fact the first course in Spain and only second in the world to be lit up at night, enabling players to enjoy their golf long after the sun goes down.

The final two days of the tournament will be broadcast to more than 100 countries via the LET’s extensive TV network. Continue reading »

With news of Britain’s vote to leave the EU has come some uncertainty about the property market in Spain, so we thought we would take a closer look at how this may affect Marbella.
In practical terms there is no change—initially at least. Britain is still a member of the EU and will remain so for two years from the date Article 50—which formally starts negotiations for an exit—is announced. This means that British citizens still enjoy the same rights in Spain as they did before the referendum vote. No one is quite sure when Article 50 will be presented, although best estimates are for October. Continue reading »

A bride glowingly beautiful in white with the groom resplendent in his wedding best making their vows on a glorious sandy beach in the shade of swaying palms to the sound of waves gently lapping on the shore. It’s the ultimate romantic dream scenario for many couples planning their nuptials—especially if they are up in cooler Northern climes.
Indeed, it is an idyll that draws thousands to tropical paradises from the Seychelles to the Caribbean each year to celebrate their happy day—but there is no need to go all that way when Marbella is virtually on your doorstep! Continue reading »
