The little ones in Marbella probably are among the happiest in the world… Where else can a few years old children in Europe enjoy more than 300 sunny days a year, full with outside programs in the fresh air? Whether you are a full-time resident of the Costa del Sol or simply dropping into Marbella for a week, you will find loads of resources available to help make your time with your family truly special and unforgettable.

Spanish Local peoples

Spanish locals are very relaxed and friendly. You can’t expect most places to offer your children coloring books, crayons, and balloons. But you will find that most places will be accommodating to your needs whether it’s reheating a baby bottle or cleaning up the big mess that your baby made all over the place.

Features and facilities

Marbella offers many baby-friendly hotels with a fantastic range of features and facilities like baby pools and toddler, play areas, family rooms, and kids’ clubs. You can enjoy time together as a family, or even a little time out for just the two of you. Marbella is a city that lives on tourism, so many family issues are tolerated even if not noticed. If your baby is quiet enough you will find that you can even get into some of the fine restaurants.

A word from the founder of Mary Poppins

“My background and experience as a Lawyer in Marbella for more than 15 years, working side-by-side and close to foreigners and experts based in Marbella during so many years, as well as, especially, my own personal experience of being married to a Danish man, having my lovely Scandinavian-Spanish daughter, made me realize and understand so deeply the kind of needs that many families, but especially those foreigners families, residing in Marbella could have when we are talking about trust and confidence.

As I like to say, my aim with this company is to recruit those kinds of reliable professional people that I would love to work in my own house and to take care of the people I love, feeling confidence and relaxed.”
