The Andalucia region
Puerto de la Duquesa is situated in Andalucia on the Western Costa del Sol. Puerto de la Duquesa which is a well kept secret along this coastline and is known as the new 'Golden Mile' on the Costa Del Sol or 'the other Costa Del Sol'. The essence in this distinction is that the area retains vast areas of unspolit natural scenery and authentic local character.
Whether you want to laze on one of the blue flag beaches, have lunch in a Chiringuito on the beach, hire a boat from the Marina, walk in the hills, visit the beautiful white villages or play golf, Duquesa has it all!
In addition to this there are amusement parcs and water parcs a short drive away (40/45 minutes) and the Selwo Park Estepona based on an African Safari Park (10/15 mins).
The lively Marina boasts many restaurants and bars catering for all tastes, A lovely walk along a promenade joins Duquesa Port with the small village of Sabinillas.
Fifteen minutes by car will take you to the town of Estepona and a further ten minutes will take you to Marbella.
Gaucin & Casares famous Andalucian white villages in the hills are also only a short drive away (10/15 mins) and Ronda is a little further (1 hour).
The Western Costa Del Sol borders the Costa De La Luz (cost of light) where you can visit Gibratar (30 mins), Tarifa favourite with windsurfers (1 hour) and catch a ferry across to Morocco.
Golf courses are in abundance along the coast and many are within 15 minutes drive. These include Duquesa, Dona Julio, Casares (9 hole), Fincon Cortesan, Valderrama, San Roque, Marbella Golf Resort, Marbella Golf & Country, Sotogrande, Alcaidesa, Estepona and La Canada.
A little background on why this apartment and the local area. I first visited Duquesa about 15 years ago as a friends parents had an apartment here. I fell in love with the port and marina and loved the golf courses around. I bought this apartment off-plan because I love the location as there was little noise from the main A7 unlike the apartments in the Marina that have this busy road directly behind them and because it was a new build it was a higher spec, had a lift and an undergound car parking space which many of the older properties did not.
One of the main benefits is it is in tranquil location, benefits from 2 swimming pools and an underground parking space but is in easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the port, shops and beach.
The large apartment is light and airy with a terrace which is not overlooked and is quiet where one can relax and read a book, listen to music or have an afternoon snooze
The port is about a 10/15 walk away, half way there is Fino's Wine Bar, a Tapas Bar, Kellys (a great place for Breakfast if you want to pop out) and several shops.
On a clear day you can see Morocco in the distance from the Terrace.
