Getting 2015 off to a fine start, VIVA clients, associates, partners, guests and friends recently attended the inauguration of the latest addition to our expanding network of regional offices which, located right in the very heart of the capital of the Costa del Sol, opened its doors on 15 December.

The perfect hosts, VIVA Málaga Partners – Agustín González, Esperanza Cruz and José Cuadra – made everyone very welcome, and with time-honoured Malagueña hospitality it was a highly enjoyable and memorable evening for all, with good company, luscious sushi, mouthwatering tapas and no glass left unfilled!

Opening an office in Málaga – the sixth largest city in Spain – is an enormously significant and exciting step for VIVA. And the timing couldn’t be better, because having substantially reinvented itself over the last few years, the provincial capital is regularly making the headlines, as the international media effusively extoll its numerous virtues.

Mouthwatering tapas went down a treat!

With its magnificent historic monuments, mile-upon-mile of inviting urban beaches, fabulous shopping, burgeoning art scene and renowned as the gastronomic hub of southern Spain, it’s no surprise that Málaga is already well-established as a favourite city break destination for Northern Europeans. In fact, last year it beat all records hands down when according to Spanish provincial daily Diario Sur, over a million tourists holidayed in the city in 2014.

But just last September, it also emerged that according to a poll carried out by Urban Audit – a European Commission research group – Málaga was named ‘Spain’s most liveable city’, offering its citizens the best quality of life of all Spanish cities, and one of the highest in Europe.

So next time you’re out and about in the Costa del Sol’s very own captivating cultural hotspot, why not pop into the VIVA Málaga office and say hello… a warm and friendly welcome is guaranteed!

You’ll find the VIVA Málaga office at Calle Antonio Baena Gómez 1. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 10am to 7.30pm, and Saturdays from 11am to 2pm.

Plug that Gap: US clothing store opens first Spanish branch at Málaga airport

Common on the British high street, Gap had been absent from Spain until the Málaga store's opening

Present in France and Italy, the famous chain has no branches in Germany, Scandinavia nor eastern Europe, but has this week opened its very first store in Spain – at Málaga Airport’s T3 terminal, to be exact…

Law of averages puts Spain top of the holiday pile

The golden stretches of the Costa del Sol are perennial favourites for British holidaymakers

Relying on the ‘law of averages’ has always been tricky. After all, it was the law of averages that gave us ‘2.4 children’ and it usually denotes a not-so-happy medium: the mean, the middle, the unexciting.

But when it comes to something that is inherently exciting and individual, such as holidays, then the law of averages is actually pretty useful, not least because a recent survey by the Travel Supermarket has applied this logic to the tourism industry and discovered that the typical Brits’ holiday for 2015 will be a ten-day trip to Spain
