Festival Director Mac Chakaveh, told SUR in English: “The festival’s objectives have always been two fold. To promote cultural tourism to the area by introducing Marbella to many potential visitors from across the globe, who have never been to Marbella before and could be potential investors in Marbella, not the usual beach holiday visitors, but business executives and investors who have funded and invested in films being screened in Marbella, as well as culture seekers who are looking for an alternative autumn long weekend break, enjoying the sun, culture and glamour that Marbella Film Festival offers.

The San Pedro-born golfer won the Open de España on Sunday at Guadalmina; the win marks her sixth major career title

The Guadalmina golf course hosted the Open de España at the weekend. Marbella-born Muñoz took advantage of the home crowd as she finished the weekend 19 shots under par, and walked away with the trophy.

Muñoz and fellow Spaniard Carlota Ciganda went into the final day as co-leaders. But a spectacular performance from Muñoz in which she managed five birdies and 'bogeyed' only two holes, ensured that she would leave the course victorious, sentencing Ciganda to a second-placed finish.

Take a fresh look at the Andalusian resort; enjoy contemporary trends in hospitality and relax with a September 'staycation'

It's no secret that I like to travel, to live a slightly nomadic lifestyle. Yet each time I board an aircraft to return home, it's always with a feeling of excitement to be coming back to Andalucía. Even after countless trips, each time the plane descends, flying over the lakes at El Chorro, heading towards Malaga, I'm captivated by the view. Despite all the clichés and misrepresentation, the reality is that the Costa del Sol is a wonderful place to live.

Yet, it’s all too easy to take our part of southern Spain for granted; to complain about the summer traffic, the inflated tourist prices, and yes, the heat. So as the summer holiday season draws to a close, we’re offered a welcome respite. With the departure of the high season summer visitors it’s maybe the time to take a September ‘staycation’ and fall back in love with the province.
