Hi guys! I´d like to start this, my new year message, by wishing all of our friends and the many fans and followers of MarbellaAzul.com a happy and prosperous 2017.
I would particularly like to thank all those people (you know who you are) who have helped us spread the word about the website since its launch in 2014. This year, our aim is to confirm MarbellaAzul.com as Marbella’s premier information website and build on the success of our events calendar, restaurant guide and the business directory.
We are of course extremely grateful for all your likes/shares and follows on social media and this year we will be developing our Facebook and Twitter pages to widen the website´s popularity.
We believe 2017 is going to be a great year for Marbella´s residents and our many visitors. It would be great if you join us on this amazing journey!

During the last few weeks we have had our share of the wet stuff falling from the sky. Rain…we may not like it, but we really need it. During the long, dry months of summer, drought is an ever present threat here in southern Spain.Read More
Spring is in the air…and arriving early this year. Not only have we already heard the chattering of cicadas, but take a short drive up La Concha – Marbella’s mountain – and you can experience the stunning sight and delicious smell of the first almond trees in bloom.Read More
It’s Summertime and things are looking up! Chris actually bought me some beautiful white roses for Mother’s Day, the girls very thoughtfully spent their money on some gorgeous clothes and shoes from Zara and the clocks going forward mean we get rid of those dark winter nights.Read More

Auntie Teresa! Fancy another woman prime minister – well at least she will keep No 10 clean and tidy! Seriously though, you can always rely on Wikipedia to produce some important and interesting facts about the person who is leading the country – her height is 1.72m – well I can now go to bed rest assured that she is above 1.70m and we will be safe in her hands!Read More
