Summer is the best time to relax with friends and family and to help you get into the frame, we bring you a lifestyle issue packed with a plethora of cool content.

We preview Art Marbella, Marbella’s most important art fair, at the Palacio de Congresos in Marbella from July 29, and bring you information on the many live concerts you can look forward to this month.

Construction is apace once again on the Coast and we talk with a number of top architects about the current trends that are in vogue. Chris Clover, CEO of Panorama, Marbella’s longest-established real estate agency, gives us his perspective on Marbella Property, and we summarise DM Properties‘ current annual Market Report.

Elsewhere, we feature 2016’s hot holiday destinations, hop aboard the huge Harmony of the Seas, recently launched by Royal Caribbean, marvel at the colourful Summer Collection from Roche Bobois, and experience excitement within the luxury interior of the sleek new Lexus LC500.

One of life’s other greatest pleasures, dining out, is also high on everyone’s agenda at this time of year so don’t miss our highlighted dining destinations within the quaint confines of Marbella’s Old Town and our suggestions for fine wines to accompany excellent food.
