The Andalucia region

El Retiro is located midway between Marbella (and the nearby millionaires’ playground Puerto BanĂºs) and Estepona, a quieter coastal town, well known for having kept its Spanish character. Gibraltar, with its famous rock and apes is just 45 minutes away and the towns of Seville, Cordoba, Cadiz, Jerez and Granada are accessible as day trips, as is the exotic Kingdom of Morocco.


There is plenty of entertainment in the area for families. Very close by is the Selwo Safari Park, which keeps exotic animals in semi-wild conditions. Along the coast towards Malaga are a series of theme parks including the aquapark and crocodile park at Torremolinos and the aquapark and Karting at Mijas Costa; the zoo at Fuengirola and sea life centre and aquarium at Benelmadena and Marbella. For the more active theres Funny Beach at Marbella.

Alternatively, you can just come and chill, either on the terrace or in the gardens by the pool at El Retiro or on the nearby beaches. The Costa del Sol boasts of having 300 days of sunshine a year and the winters are mostly warm or mild making it truly a year round destination.

The property is within easy walking distance of Los Flamingos golf course making the property ideal for golf enthusiasts. A 15 minute walk also brings you to the village of Cancelada with its small selection of bars and restaurants. The nearest beach is a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk away, while less than a 10 minute walk away is one of the regions premier Thalasso and Spa Hotels - The Selenza. There is a well stocked supermarket within walking distance together with Banks, more restaurants and bars.
