Wharfers seeking a summer retreat can snap up a sun trap in Marbella for less than £125,000.

Apartments at Samara – with views across the sea to Africa – lie a 10-minute drive from the beach, with the city centre a further five minutes away.

Sun-seekers can step off the plane and into their overseas retreat within the hour.

The collection of 169 homes all feature private terraces and designer kitchens with Bosch appliances and Italian porcelanatto flooring.

The climate has been taken care of via air conditioning and underfloor heating in the bathrooms while underground parking, 24-hour security and a spa and fitness centre add luxury.

Prices start at £124,000 for the 50 apartments that remain.
