|Further details outdoors|
The beautiful landscaped gardens are not like your average Costa del Sol complex. With heavily planted beds, shady benches, an abundance of fruit trees (you can pick your own lemons and bananas in season) and plenty of space for the kids to run and play around. There is also a swing, slide and paddling pool for the very little ones conveniently situated in the middle of the complex.
There are 2 large pools in the complex, with one more than 25 metres long if you fancy a 'real' early morning swim. Both are well stocked with Sun umbrellas and loungers, and there are toilets and shower facilities.
If you think you know what to expect from the Costa del Sol, think again! Whilst we still have the miles of golden sandy beaches and beautiful weather, this part of the Costa Del Sol is often referred to as 'the other' Costa Del Sol, because is it so much quieter and less developed than areas closer to Malaga.
Also, you're looking for more than a classic beach/pool or golfing holiday, we are situated within easy driving of some of the most beautiful towns and countryside in Andalucia. Not to mention Gibraltar, or even Africa. If you want to, you really can have a different holiday every day (Or you could just lie by one of our beautifully landscaped pools, and chill!)
Puerto de la Duquesa
A short walk down the hill from our apartment, Duquesa is a beautiful port with many restaurants, bars, clubs and shops. There is ample parking available all around the port, as well as a taxi rank.
As you head back up Monte Duquesa towards the apartment, there is a lovely courtyard with some great bars, restaurants and useful shops.
The small seaside town of Sabinillas sits alongside Duquesa, and still has much of its original charm including houses on the seafront which sell ice creams directly from their windows! There is a further range of excellent restaurants and bars along the beachfront, and the promenade really buzzes in the evening in the summer.
For those of you with younger kids, there are excellent play parks all the way along the sea front between Castillo la Duquesa and Sabinillas, as well as lots of play facilities built directly onto the sand. There are also regular toilet and shower points which make the transition from beach to bar much easier!
Locally, as well as the idyllic beaches, bars and restaurants, there is lots to see. In particular we recommend 'Castillo' (see below), and also the Roman Baths - about 4km inland. These just have to be seen to be believed - very much still in use, we challenge anyone to take a dip inside and not feel the spirits from way back when!
Castillo de la Duquesa
The area just to the west of Duquesa is Castillo de la Duquesa. This is a small 'town' with a number of excellent restaurants and beach bars. It's defence castle is open for a walk around, and well worth a visit.
The beaches here are wide, long and sandy. The surf can get quite high, so we recommend the corner beaches around the port for younger kids. These are much calmer and shallower, and ideal for snorkelling or just lounging around on lilos. All areas are well served by beach bars, where you can also hire loungers and beach umbrellas for the day.
If you want something a bit more adventurous, travel a few km towards Gibraltar and check out the spectacular rocky coves and beaches nestled down below the curving coast road. (some are only accessible by swimming). Here you can snorkel and rock dive in crystal waters to your hearts content.
