There are many beautiful places to visit on the Costa Del Sol the most famous being Marbella and Puerto Banus that still attracts the rich and famous and is a very stylish retreat.
There are over 60 Golf Courses along the Costa Del Golf with Valderrama being the venue of the Ryder Cup in 1997 and voted one of the best courses in the world just minutes from Casares.
With superb blue flag beaches all along the coast and fantastic marinas and restaurants you are spoilt for choice.
Casares Del Sol is situated between Estepona and Dequesa Marinas and is regarded as the best 'up and coming' area for holidaymakers and golfers in the South of Spain. The Port of Gibraltar is only 20 minutes away which offers tax free shopping and regular trips are available for any potential bargain hunters should you not have your own transport. Do not miss the cable car experience to the 'rock' for some amazing views and see the famous apes. You can even enjoy a 2 hour dolphin safari in the harbour. Remember to take your passport!
If its shops you want there is also a large area shopping Mall in La Linea near to Gibraltar, one in Estepona and a bigger one still just behind Marbella in a centre called La Canada and all within 20 minutes drive.
Water sports are available on the beach most of the summer months and there is a water park nearby and Selwo Safari park near Estepona just a short distance away.
The mountains behind the complex are a fantastic backdrop to the area and are given National Park Status and as such there are walking treks available for all distances that cater for people from 20 min walk to the more adventurous 2 hour trek. Bike rides from near the top of the mountain down to the bottom are available and offer quite breathtaking views and it is quite a pleasant trip. Casares Village is a 10 minute drive away and its a white village built on the side of a cliff with drops of 200-300 feet which has an old church at the top. Its about 400 years old and has a labyrinth of narrow streets and traditional spanish restaurants and bars. Its well worth a trip and the views are fantastic. There are many historic sites around the area dating back hundreds of years, so something for everyone.
The Costa Del Sol enjoys 320 days of sun each year due to its micro climate and this makes it perfect for all year round holidays. The climate is perfect in the winter months for the golf and lovely and hot in the summer for people who prefer the beach scene.
There's also a mix of both in the early and late summer to have the best of both worlds, ie golf in the morning and chill out in the afternoons by the pool/beach.
The "Puerto de la Duquesa" is a beautiful quaint marina with over 300 berths and a variety of restaurants including French, Italian, English, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Irish and Spanish. Each side of the Marina are the superb blue flag beaches that cater for water sports in the summer. You will also find some shops and bars that offer all types of entertainment to cater for all tastes. Some bars have some some really nice singers and there are some night clubs should you fancy a dance and there are a couple of bars that have karaoke a couple of times per week. Theres also a selection of nice "chill out bars" with fantastic views over the marina. Slightly nearer to the apartment here is a 6 Star Hyatt Hotel under construction which further enhances the growing reputation that the area is getting on a daily basis.
Estepona is slightly bigger than Duquesa and offers even more restaurants and has nearby safari and water parks. Again each side of the Marina are fantastic beaches with the usual variety of activities. You will find weekly street markets at Estepona and Dequesa with a variety of goods on offer. There is also a weekly street market at Sabinillas which is very popular and is open every Sunday from 8am - 3pm and sells just about everything!
There are many festivals in Spain and as always are great fun and well worth getting involved. There is a huge variety of restaurants in Duquesa and we have not had a bad meal yet, they are all fantastic and range from traditional Spanish tapas to Chinese, from Italian to English fish & chips, there are also some excellent seafood restaurants and restaurants with superb international cuisine. Most people say dont eat Indian meals in Spain but "Passage to India" really is the exception. There is something for everyone in Duquesa and theres even a couple of fast food places that cater for burgers and kebabs.
