The Costa del Sol region
The region of Andalucia is renowned for it's historic beauty and places of interest.
The Costa del Sol has been an international tourist destination since the early fifties, enjoying good weather all year round with over 300 days of sunshine to complement it’s beautiful scenery, beaches and golf courses. The modern infrastructure and an incomparable climate put the province in first place on the Spanish Peninsula in terms of numbers of visitors and it’s popularity.
Andalucia cries out to be explored with its rolling countryside, olive and citrus groves, mountains and Europe´s most Southerly snow ski resort in the Sierra Nevada, less than 2 hours drive away. Add to this, historic cities like Seville, Granada, Rhonda, Malaga, Cordoba, Cadiz and so many more, as well as coastal attractions/marinas such as Puerto Banus, Puerto de la Duquesa and SotoGrande, plus the Mediterranean and Atlantic beaches and you will need to visit more than once!
There are fantastic mountain ranges, the closest being Sierra Bermeja with stunning views from the Apartment. It is a national park and is 5,000ft, at the summit.
As well as the places of historic interest a short drive away is the town and port of Marbella and Puerto Banus with its fine shopping and cafe lifestyle. Gibraltar offers the British shops, banks, etc and the Rock itself is very interesting to explore with gardens, caves and history with magnificent views of the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas and the African coastline.
Nearest beach is 300m across the road – this is an unspoilt secluded beach with a quiet promenade perfect for an evening stroll. If you prefer something more lively, the beautiful beaches of Playa del Cristo, Casares and La Duquesa are only a 5 minute drive. The sandy beach front of Estepona stretches for many kilometres and some parts have been awarded European Blue Flags.
The Atlantic Coast and Tarifa are about 45minute drive.
The charming coastal town of Estepona still retains the charm of ‘old Spain’, is 5 minutes drive along the Coast Road. It hosts a wide variety of good restaurants and tapas bars; beautiful clean beaches with plenty of chiringuitos (bar/restaurant) along the recently developed promenade which stretches the length of the town.
The Port and Marina are situated at the west end of the seafront promenade. It is a working fishing port and has daily auctions for a variety of seafood. Further south 5 mins by car is the town of Sabinillas and just beyond, Porto de la Duquesa with its marina, beaches, bars and restaurants.
Sotogrande (10km), Puerto Banus (20 km); Marbella (30 km).
White villages (Pueblos Blancos):
Only a short drive up in the hills are the famous Pueblo Blancos such as Casares and Benhavis– great to visit and get away from it all! You can enjoy the local food and wine and legendary hospitality at reasonable prices and experience the ‘real’ Spanish life!
The area is also known as Costa del Golf - this is without doubt a Golfers Paradise. There are more than 30 golf courses nearby, nearest ones are Finca El Cortesin and Estepona Golf - only 5 minutes drive. " Soto Grande", "Valderrama" and "La Reserva" are 5 minutes drive with numerous other top courses to choose from - simply too many to mention.

The course is set against the Sierra Bermja mountain range, and enjoys sea views from most parts of the course. The fairways are wide and the greens are large, which provides a challenge to players of all levels.

There is a lovely restaurant in the Country Club itself which has an excellent menu and is very reasonably priced. About 200m away there are two very nice restaurants – Le Castel (which hosts traditional flamenco nights) and La Casona.
A 5 min drive in either direction will take you to Estepona or Puerto de la Duquesa where you will find a wide variety of restaurants and bars with terraces for eating out and enjoying views of the sea and marina's. We recommend that you hire a car when visiting the Costa del Sol. A taxi into Estepona or Duquesa can be ordered through the Country Club reception.
Estepona and Puerto de la Duquesa offer a variety of bars and some night clubs. Puerto Banus or even Gibraltar are the main destinations for a party night out!
