The Costa del Sol region
Over the last few decades, the Costa del Sol has become one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. Its pleasant climate, numerous beaches and Golf courses have certainly influenced this. There are countless places to visit and things to do which make it one of the most successful tourist areas.
Its capital, Malaga, and the city of Marbella are both cosmopolitan cities with great nightlife as well as cultural significance and attract the most tourists. It is a vast area with many different faces from the touristy beach towns like Marbella to the more traditional white washed villages of Mijas.
Costa del Sol doesn’t just possess a good climate but it also has diversity. It is no wonder it is so popular with holiday makers, both young and old.
The Estepona / Albayt Costa Galera Country Club area
The property is situated between the charming old town of Estepona and the lovely Puerto de La Duquesa, both only a few minutes away by car. Cosmopolition Marbella (great for shopping) and the dazzling Puerto Banus (great for people watching) are only 15/20 minutes away.
There are several attractions close by to interest the whole family. Selwo Safari Park in Estepona with its animals roaming semi-wild is a great day out as is the Zoo in Fuengirola. There are also two Water Parks close by, one in Mijas Costa and the other in Torremolinos.
A great day out is a visit to Gibraltar, (but don't forget your passport) where you can take a tour of "The Rock" and have close contact with the Apes. For the more adventurous, you can also take a day trip to Morocco on the fast Ferry from Algeciras. Also in the area are several beautiful villages, towns and cites. These include Casares , Ronda, Mijas, Benhavis, Selville and Granada to name but a few.
If you prefer to stay close to the Country Club you can indulge yourself (at a very reasonable weekly membership fee - see www.albaytresort.com for up to date details) in the indoor heated Swimming Pool, Turkish bath, Sauna and various Treatment Showers with hot and cold jets and essential oils. Hydraulic beds for massage, Jacuzzi, Massage rooms and all the usual Beauty treatments etc. are also provided. Some of these services will cost extra, eg massages and beauty treatments.
Outside the Club House there is another large pool plus a separate smaller children's pool. A 3 hole practice golf facility with putting area and a covered driving range is available to all guests. Paddle tennis courts are also available, adjacent to the Club House.
If you prefer to swim in the sea, the beautiful beaches of Estepona, Duquesa, Sotogrande, Puerto Banus and Marbella are only a few minutes away by car. There is also a natural beach opposite the entrance to the Costa Galera development (Bermuda Beach, about 250 meters from the apartment) which is accessible on foot by crossing the N340 roadway
The Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf, with good reason. There are at least 40 courses along the coastline. Closest to the Apartment are Estepona and Duquesa, both within a 5 minute drive and reasonably priced. The famous Valderrama course is only 15 minutes away as is San Roque, Marbella, Atalaya, El Paraiso and Sontogrande. A Handicap Certificate is required by most Golf Clubs.
The lively resorts of Fuengirola and Torrelmolinos are within easy reach by car, bus or taxi. Malaga airport is only a 50 minute drive. Other airports include Gibraltar (30 minutes) and Jerez (75 minutes).
The beautiful whitewashed village of Caseras is a 15 minute drive and the ancient town of Ronda, with it's breathtaking views a futher 45 minutes.
Estepona is one of the most westerly towns of the Costa del Sol and one of the most important tourist towns. It is situated right on the coast, 81km from Malaga, between Marbella and Manilva. It has excellent facilities, from restaurants and bars to fantastic beaches. The area is laden with activities to keep visitors busy and the area around is bursting of fascinating sites and places to see.
There certainly is something for everyone here. Within Estepona you can find a traditional old style Andalusian Pueblo. But you’ll also find a thoroughly modern holiday destination. Here is a town that maintains its rustic charm whilst still providing a holiday haven. Estepona is definitely an exceptional and unique place.

You can Fly directly to Malaga or Gibraltar Airports. These Airports are served by Ryanair, Easyjet, BA, Monarch,Globespan, BMIbaby, Flybe from a variety of UK, Irish and other European airports.
Malaga airport is only a 50 minute drive from the Apartment on excellent roads, the Autopista (AP7) and the N340 Coast road .
Gibraltar Airport is a 30 minute drive once cleared through Spanish Customs (which can sometimes be slow).
Flying to Jerez from Stansted with Ryanair can at times be very inexpensive although it does mean a longer drive to the apartment (about 90 minutes).

Had very nice time with my family (husband and 5 months old baby) and would come back again. Loved the fully equipped kitchen, the living room was spacious, the garden was lovely. Only thing needs to be changed are the beds and pillows (very uncomfy).
Car is highly recommended as the apartment is 10 km from Estepona's centre. Shopping is 2 min by car in both directions. There are a lot of places to see within a short drive: Gibraltar, Marbella, Ronda (takes 1 hour due to mountain roads but it is an amazing and must to see), Selwo zoo, etc. Local spanish restaurants can be found all over the coast, it does worth to explore outside turistic citycenters, you will find charming tapas bars in small hidden ports.

My brother and I both booked apartments in the Albayt Resort for our families to holiday together - there seem to be plenty available to rent. The resort is ideal - plenty of pools to lounge around and rarely did we have problems getting a sun lounger. Lots of shady places too. The Club staff are very friendly and the coffee gorgeous. Large flat screen TV in the lounge area to take in the Olympics and free wifi which was well used. A car is essential to get into Estepona and to shop at the numerous cheap supermarkets along the main road.
The apartment is ideally placed - just a few steps from the chiringuita and a split level pool. The garden is bigger than some and has lovely views. Air con very efficient. Bedrooms compact but with excellent storage, good size ensuite and shower room, couches comfy, tv reception fine, dvd player useful. Kitchen well equipped with fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave and dishwasher. Superb pizzas and pasta at restaurant near entrance to Albayt resort. We had a great time and excellent value for money! Many thanks Tom.
