Christmas at The Urban Villa Marbella

Christmas at The Urban Villa Marbella

We know it feels way too early to start thinking about Christmas – but it will be here before you know it! It’s a good idea to start planning early, as you don’t want to leave it too late to book your Christmas getaway in Marbella and find out there’s no availability.

The Costa del Sol is a lovely place to experience Christmas! The weather is usually great, with mild temperatures the norm, bright sunshine and incredible clear views over to Gibraltar and Africa from our Mirador Terrace. The towns and villages are lit up with pretty coloured lights from December 1st to January 7th, with traditional nativity scenes on every corner and special events. Santa gives gifts to the children in the nearby La Cañada shopping centre on the outskirts of Marbella and there’s a myriad of shops to find that perfect Christmas gift.

We recommend a visit to Marbella’s Old Town during the evening, as the streets and squares are as pretty as a picture dressed in bright Christmas lights. Exploring the winding streets and discovering little bars and restaurants for some tapas, hot chocolate and churros or some mulled wine is the perfect festive treat. A stroll along Marbella’s seaside promenade and lunch by the beach is wonderful all year round too, and it’s just 10 minutes’ drive from our rural hotel.

Festive Fun at The Urban Villa

At The Urban Villa, we are serving traditional Christmas lunches for groups throughout December, so even if you’re not here on the day, we can get you in the festive spirit. If your family tends to disperse over Christmas, then why not book out the villa for a pre-Christmas family treat? You can book out the whole villa and we can cater the traditional Christmas dinner, or you can book a floor or a few interconnecting suites for a smaller group. At our rural boutique hotel, we pride ourselves on personalized service and creating a very special experience for you, so just ask what makes it Christmas for you and we can create it!

Why not join us to decorate the tree and enjoy a delicious buffet and mulled wine on December 1st and get a dose of the famous Marbella weather before returning home for a family Christmas? It’s a lovely place to get the Christmas shopping done and really affordable too with the exchange rate.

Or, be our guests for an unforgettable Urban Villa Christmas, we have loads of amazing plans to make it extra special. The piano in our cozy lounge and the roaring fire is perfect for singing carols, and we love to party, so please just ask if you want to dance the night away, or for us to put on a festive cocktail party on our beautiful terrace. As our small luxury hotel has just 5 suites, we can cater to the guests’ requirements and make it perfect for everyone.

On Christmas Eve we will hang up the stockings by the fire and if you’ve been good then you’ll find that Santa has left some lovely pressies just for you.

For Christmas Day, we will cater to your needs and make everything really special, so let us know what you like. Of course, there will be the traditional Christmas lunch, with delicious food, wonderful Spanish wines and loads of festive cheer and you can head into the countryside for a stroll to walk off all that food.

Whether you’re a big group, or a couple, we will make you feel one of the family and ensure you have a Christmas to remember. We are already receiving bookings for the festive season, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
