Hosting a Spanish Dinner Party

Our villas are the perfect place to welcome friends and family for an evening of delicious food, drinks and laughter. Make memories by hosting your very own luxury dinner party, making use of all the seasonal and traditional food Spain has to offer its visitors.

First things first, both Villa El Cid and Villa El Cano offer a number of dining options for your soiree. Party planners can choose from the dining area indoors, the conservatory area or set up outside on the lawn. Each option offers its own panoramic views of the beautiful Los Flamingos horizon, which sets a stunning backdrop for the evening. 

When it comes to cooking, you can take on the task of Chef, playing around with some of the fresh seafood, seasonal vegetables and succulent fruit that Spain is famous for. Alternatively, you can have an outside catering company come on board to help ease the stress allowing you to focus on entertaining your guests and enjoying their company.

We work with some of Marbella's most professional catering companies; Gusto Marbella and Cooking Holiday Spain, who would be more than happy to discuss your culinary vision for the evening and work with your budget to create it. 

Spanish Dinner Party at DSV Collection Marbella

But, if you're confident and happy to take on the cooking yourself, recreating your own personal Spanish feast of paella, tapas and fresh fruit would certainly impress! Spanish dining is all about sharing platters and a group experience - taking pressure off the kitchen to produce a three course set meal. During the Summer there are a number of Spanish ingredients that are in their prime. If you can get to a food market (ask the DSV Collection property manager when you arrive) keep your eyes peeled for:

  • Strawberries, raspberries, cherries & currants
  • Melon & watermelon
  • Nectarines & peaches
  • Mangoes, plums & pears
  • Tomato
  • Zucchini

Ease your guests into the evening with a traditional Spanish drink. Keep it simple with Cava, master a Tinto de Verano or try out our delicious recipe for Cava Sangria, all are guaranteed to get diners in the mood for a great night. Spain is home to some wonderful wines that would compliment the food perfectly. Pop into a local Wine Shop like Dona Copetta in Marbella for the best selection and offers. 

Finally, the atmosphere at a dinner party should never be forgotten! Music is the key to creating an ambience that relaxes guests and puts them at ease. Access the surround sound systems we have in the villas to play your own music or select an existing playlist from Spotify. For something really special, treat your dinner party to some live Spanish guitar, there are a number of superb musicians in the Costa del Sol who would complete the ultimate villa dining experience.

Our villas are available to rent for group bookings including families, friends or colleagues. Get in touch with us about availability or to discuss your trip in more detail.

Happy holidays.
