We’ve been Movin’ in and around Malaga and Marbella in Spain’s stunning Costa del Sol, searching out new and fabulous locations for unforgettable corporate events and bespoke travel itineraries and we think you will love it!
We were very excited to take a tour of several wineries in the La Ronda region. We saw the fabulous organic winery Bodega Joaquín Fernández and the Bodega La Melonera En Ronda. We were blown away by the stunning bodega Descalzos Viejos, a beautiful 16th century monastery that has been entirely refurbished and where the winery is located and music festivals held. A visit into rural Andalucia to sample wines at these magical places would be a fantastic day trip.
The following destinations were equally rewarding. We visited three fabulous haciendas, La Biznaga (www.haciendalabiznaga) el Alamo (www.bodegaelalamo.com), and Nadales www.haciendanadales.com all located on the outskirts of Malaga and wonderful locations for corporate or private events.
A couple of special places for events and venue locations stood out in the city of Malaga. We loved the idea of using the amazing Picasso museum (www.museopicassomalaga.org/en/home) and the Castilla de Santa Catarina (www.castillodesantacatalina.es) another jewel, with original 17th century walls surrounding the refurbished building. It also has an eight-room hotel, perfect for smaller corporate groups.
The trip was rounded off with a visit to the 5-star Grand Hotel Miramar (www.granhotelmiramarmalaga.com/en), a beautiful hotel and venue that is steeped in history. Built in 1926 by King Alfonso XIII it was used during the civil war as a hospital and then as Malaga’s Palace of Justice. It reopened its doors as a hotel in 2016 and today is one of Malaga’s finest destinations.
Last but not least, is the classic Bodega el Pimpi @elpimpimalaga in Malaga, with its beautiful dining areas, and fantastic tapas. The walls are covered with old Andalusian posters and the rooms bear the names of famous people who have visited over the years.
If you prefer to be out of the city then we can arrange an event at one of these beautiful coastal or rural destinations. If not, the cities of Marbella and Malaga offer very attractive options for small to large corporate events. The people from southern Spain are very welcoming, the places we visited of a very high standard and the sun never stops shining. Tempted?
