arbella properties have always been about lifestyle as much as about the homes themselves, so this is an area where integrating the two concepts has a long and proud history. Among the many styles and trends that have shaped the local urban landscape and its real estate market, the most recent ‘wave’ was all about

integrating the latest technologies, mod coms and architectural designs within the unique setting of this region. Now the market has reached a new crossroads, where those with the vision to dare are introducing new ideas from abroad and adapting them to the local market, conditions and tastes. Ours is a

year-round destination and city, but in contradistinction to many of the large urban centres it is also a place where leisure and entertainment play a larger role, and this certainly has to be reflected in the properties it offers. For this reason, elements such as views – especially sea views – pool areas and entertainment rooms are

of prime importance, yet they have to increasingly be incorporated into homes that offer space, comfort and 21st century amenities. The result is a certain style of property that has become the new trend on the Costa del Sol now – and in relation to which novel projects such as Be Lagom are offering an exciting alternative.
