Marbellisima – Gilly Jaxson

Superb soul singer and sexy veggie chef Gilly Jaxson picks her Marbella favourites!


Best View:

The beach. After all these years it still takes my breath away with the most incredible sunsets and at night the most stunning starry sky, that makes you ponder your existence.

Best for Eating :

Sloanes in Elviria. It’s British food and not vegan, but if you explain what you require they will accommodate. They always make great efforts and I’m never disappointed. I found them to be helpful and friendly with great service. Their attentiveness is wonderful and the live music at weekend is perfect. It’s the kind of place that when ever you go you feel special and it’s a great place for a romantic meal too!

Best for Coffee:

Orange Square where l first fell in love with Spain. I never get bored of the ‘prettiness’ of the old town. It’s the perfect place to relax and take in the ambiance of Spain.

Best for showing visitors the real Spain :

My local organic market in Elviria. I love to talk with some of the stall holders, who grow food and sell local products from  honey to handmade soap. It’s  always lovely just chatting with people and it’s a great social event.

Best for quiet moments:

Sitting in one of the churches in the Old Town creates a calm sensation in your being. And there are no mobile phones!

Best for lively ones:

One of my gigs! At the moment I play on the beach and at weekends and l love to get people up singing and dancing!!

I can’t live without:

My passport. I love traveling and the sense of freedom. It makes my heart sing just to pack a bag and go…

Best for shopping:

The Old Town in Marbella… if you’re looking for something different…

What Marbella means to me

Marbella means home. It’s sociable, fun and has been a great place to make friends. I have learnt and developed as a person. You never get bored and there are always  lots of things to do and to get involved in. Life is constantly moving.
