After what felt like one of the hottest summers here on the Costa del Sol, hopefully September will bring a respite, especially with cooler temperatures in the evening – bring it on! This month we experience Eco Tourism in Madeira and focus on Flora Native to Andalucía.

Check out our recent dazzling tour of The Royal Collections and consider also being in the capital for Open House Madrid, from September 21 – 24. We preview the 2024 Porsche Panamera, review some Top Smokers, and consider the forthcoming impact of A.I.

Live like a Viceroy at Virrey Villas and jazz up your interiors with eclectic style from Zoco Home and Design Centre.

Carla Morales, the Marbella businesswoman on our September Cover, enlightens us on her her role at Anytech365, and don’t miss our profile on Witcher Supremo, Henry Cavill – could he be the new Bond?

Finally, Soothe your senses at SOUL by BREATHE, the sensational new dining venue at the Nueva Alcantara Club.

Happy Reading!



Native Flora

Andalucía’s Botanical Jewels

If you live in this area or visit regularly, you may think you know Andalucía fairly well, but how many of you can recognise its indigenous flora? Take a look at some of its most common shrubs, plants and trees to see how many of them you know.

Camojan Six

Camoján Six – The View From The Top

Lying adjacent to Marbella Sierra Blanca, Cascada de Camojan is one of the hottest locations for acquiring property in the municipality. At its apex, six luxurious villas are taking shape that combine state-of-the-art aesthetics with technology, comfort, and sustainability.

Zoco Home

Zoco Home – A Style Made For These Shores

Zoco Home’s extensive showroom on the Mijas Road is the place to visit to browse furniture items and ensembles with their signature Scandinavian style fused with ethnic and Mediterranean influences. The firm also offers a design centre for layout configurations.

Hotel Eurostar Oasis

The Eurostars Oasis Marbella 4*

This brand new Eurostars hotel has an ideal location – in the heart of Marbella’s Golden Mile, directly behind the Oasis Centre, and only minutes from the beach. It comprises 68 rooms, three distinct food and beverage establishments, gardens, pool, and a spa.


Virrey Villas Boutique Design

Virrey means Viceroy in Spanish, which is a good indication of what life would be like owning one of the five ultra-luxury homes designed by renowned developer Vasari. Their location is enviable too, above the Golden Mile with panoramic sea and mountain views.

Porsche Panamera

Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sports Saloon

Its launch in 2009 defied critics who said that a ‘family’ Porsche would never be a hit. The second generation is so good that it's hard to imagine how Porsche could improve the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, so what can we expect from the forthcoming third generation?

Soul, San Pedro

Soothe Your Senses At SOUL

SOUL Marbella by BREATHE is the sensational new dining venue at the Nueva Alcantara Club which is already a smash hit in Marbella! Enjoy healthy food, cold pressed juices, and smoothies in a superlative setting following a work out or a session on the courts.


The Green Side Of Madeira

If you want to experience the holiday of a lifetime, with memories of lounging in turquoise lagoons in a tropical paradise that will remain with you forever, Mauritius, also known as ’The Pearl of the Indian Ocean, will fulfil all of your wildest expectations.
