Marbella was the final (filming) destination of an upcoming TV travel series. When Costa del Sol businessman Alex Dart, Managing Director of Marbella based leading luxury property agency Vivienda Real Estate was asked to find a luxury villa to rent in the Marbella area for the weekend stay of a celebrity, he thought nothing of it…
He found her a €10,000,000 luxury villa in Los Arqueros, just a stone’s through away from the exclusive Benahavís urbanisation of La Zagaleta, arguably Europe’s most sought after postcode.
The celebrity turned out to be Emmy-nominate actress, singer and television host Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.
The Canadian stunner is best known as Steffy Forrester in US soap ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ and for her role in 2011s horror film ‘Final destination 5’.
The 26-year-old was in Marbella for filming of the concluding part of new travel series on E! ‘Party On’ which she is hosting.
In each of the half-hour episodes in this eight-episode series MacInnes Wood will put the spotlight on the best party scenes in the world, revealing all the glamour and sun soaked mischief they have to offer.
“‘Party On’ is a bold, fun VIP tour of the most sparkling party destinations on the planet,” E!’s executive vice president of programming and development, Jeff Olde, said in a statement.
“We are excited to take viewers around the globe and behind the velvet ropes for fun in the sun at only the hottest, most elite vacation locales.”
Before the series culminates in Marbella, it will feature destinations such as the Croatian island of Hvar, Greek island hotspot of Mykonos, Sardinia’s beautiful Costa Smeralda, and St. Tropez, among others.
The series comes from BAFTA award-winning production company Monkey Kingdom, part of NBCUniversal Television Production.
“It was great that such a prestigious production company chose Marbella for the season finale of their new series. It shows that Marbella is once again at the forefront of people’s minds when thinking about luxury,” says Alex Dart.
“When you buy a luxury villa for sale in Marbella, or in surrounding areas such as La Zagaleta, you are not only buying a top notch property, but you are buying into the luxury lifestyle that Marbella has to offer,” he says.
“Over the past few months we have seen a significant increase in the number of foreign buyers making enquiries about the luxury property end of the market here in the Marbella area. Naturally, if the luxury villa was previously listed at €5 million, they now want the ones which have been reduced to €3 million,” he adds.
“Everyone likes a bargain, even rich Arabs or Russians!”
