This traditional Andalusian-style bungalow is situated in a quiet, well-established and beautifully maintained residential area on the Costa del Sol. The perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The beach is only a short 5 minute walk away, so it is easy to just head to the beach first thing in the morning for an invigorating swim before heading off to explore the local area or you could pop down to the beach for a short stroll at sunset. The centre of Estepona with its bustling port and tranquil beautifully restored old town is 3km away - a 45 minute walk along the beach.
There are two large supermarkets a short walk away - Aldi (300m) and Mercadona (500m), a Burger King (300m) and the local restaurants (500m) have a very good reputation and offer a range of dishes for all tastes.

Wth over 320 sunny days, outdoor activities can be enjoyed all year. Estepona is the perfect base for sightseeing in Malaga or Ronda, or driving around the white villages just behind the Sierra Bermeja mountain range. The Atlantic coast near Tarifa is only a short drive away. Other activities include horse riding, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, sightseeing, diving, mountain biking.....
HIKING: Nearby there are numerous hiking areas and nature reserves. We are fortunate to have known this area for over 20 years and can provide advice on hiking routes or information on the natural history of this wonderful region. The Senda de Malaga is a newly inaugurated series of hiking routes through some amazing scenery. Best areas for hiking include the Sierra Bermeja (Estepona), Sierra Blanca (Marbella and Ojen), Sierra de las Nieves (Ronda, Yunquera and Istan), Serrania de Ronda (near Estepona), Sierra Crestellina (Casares), Los Alcornocales Nature Reserve (Cork Oak Forests near Los Barrios), Mediterranean Steps in Gibraltar with views of both Europe and Africa. Grazalema Nature Reserve for lush vegetation and rocky landscapes. El Torcal near Antequera for limestone rock formations. Best times for enjoying the natural beauty of the mountains around Estepona are the beginning of April to the end of June. However, with over 320 sunny days a year it is possible to go walking throughout the year with the exception of the hotter summer months of July and August.
BIRD WATCHING: The area has many sites of interest for bird watching i.e. Guadalhorce Wetlands near Malaga, Wetlands at La Janda near Tarifa, Gibraltar for migratory birds, Casares for vultures and the Lesser Kestrel, Flamingos at La Fuente de Piedra, Raptors in the Sierras, Bee-eaters, Hoopoos etc etc,
WILDFLOWERS: Which time of year for wild flowers? Botanists will enjoy the many orchid species that flower between February and June, Almond blossom in January, while plants at higher altitudes (Sierra de las Nieves) can be enjoyed during June/July. In our opinion, the most beautiful time of year is between April and June. Botanical gardens are at their best during spring and early summer i.e. La Concepcion near Malaga and in the Alcornocales Natural Park near Los Barrios (highly recommended). Estepona has a small park with botanical information around the lighthouse near the fishing port.
GOLF: Estepona boasts numerous golf courses from which to choose. Enjoy the pleasant temperatures and Mediterranean sun while throughout autumn, winter and spring. We have 4 sets of golf clubs (2 men's and 2 ladies) with 3 trolleys available on request. Use of these is free but a deposit is required.
CULTURAL SITES: Enjoy the local culture. the Old Town of Estepona has been lovingly restored during the last two years and is now the garden of the Costa. Most of the old town is now pedestrianised and has been decorated with hanging plants and larger container plants. Visit the Pueblos blancos in the valley behind Estepona, including Genalguacil which has open air sculptures. Roman ruins (free entry to EU citizens) just behind Bolonia beach near Tarifa. Caves at Gibraltar (take passport and don't forget to visit the famous Barbary Macaques) and in the Serrania de Ronda just behind Estepona. Museums in Ronda and Malaga. Art Galleries i.e. Picasso museum, Thyssen Museum and Modern Art in Malaga City. Day trip to the Alhambra in Granada (book in advance).

The Andalucia region
Andalucia has a long and colourful history which reflects in the local architecture, food and customs. Andalucia elicits thoughts of sun, beaches, warmth.... but there is more to this wonderful Spanish autonomous region than this. The vibrancy of the culture and its people, permeates the entirety of everyday life including the Mediterranean cuisine. Food drenched in olive oil with the freshest of fruits and vegetables, freshly caught fish, spicy chorizo sausage, tapas which can include all kinds of salads, Spanish tortilla, marinated olives, and all washed down with the famous Spanish red or white wines. You can almost taste the sun. Extra strong coffee that has been double roasted can be enjoyed outside enjoying the sunshine.
The towns and villages mostly retain their white-washed charm and have a sleepy calmness during the hottest part of the day during summer, but then come to life in the evenings. The Moorish influences are not just evident in the language, but also in the narrow alleyways of the towns and villages, helping to keep residents cool during the summer. Visit Seville, Cordoba, Granada (day trip from Estepona) or Ronda (day trip) to see the richness of the cultural heritage.
Geographically, behind the busy coastal towns, lies a hidden world of mountains and small villages, where there are still signs of small scale and subsistence farming and where life seems to have changed little over the centuries. This is the food engine of Andalucia, producing ample supplies of Almonds, Olives, Pomegranates, Oranges, Avocados, Figs, Chestnuts... to name but a few. The Valle de Genal just behind Estepona is a perfect example of this way of life. Meanwhile, the cork oak forests with their huge gnarled trees yield corks for wine and reveal a deep rich red stem when they have been newly harvested. These are found throughout the region, but some of the best examples are in the Alcornocales Natural Park which is a 30 minute drive from Estepona. During the autumn (dependent of sufficient quantities of rain), the forest offers a bountiful harvest of wild mushrooms including chantarelles, ceps, and parasol mushrooms. Which brings us back to food...
Estepona has managed to retain its unique identity with its extensive old town of white-washed houses that have been beautifully adorned with hanging baskets of flowers by the friendly local residents. Most of the old town has recently been pedestrianized which makes a stroll through the town looking on the way to a cafe, bar or restaurants a real pleasure. Local residents are very welcoming and helpful and most will welcome a chance to practice their language skills.
Following are some more its the reasons why Estepona is such a wonderful place to visit...
CLIMATE: With over 320 days of sunshine per year, the Costa del Sol is a great place to be throughout the year. Estepona benefits from a unique microclimate that ensures that temperatures are warmer during the winter months and pleasantly fresher during the hot summer months. The climate makes Estepona the area perfect for hiking throughout the year, for golfers, families looking for a child friendly beach holiday or couples in need of some relaxation. Alfresco dining is possible throughout the year, even during the winter months, when daytime temperatures often reach the low 20s. Even on cooler days, the sun shines relentlessly!
CULTURE: Estepona is perfectly located to reach a wide range of cultural sites e.g the museums of Malaga, Ronda in the mountains, the relaxed white villages just behind the Sierra Bermeja (the mountain range surrounding Estepona) and the Roman ruins near Tarifa on the Atlantic cost.
CHILDREN: There is a wealth of adventure parks in the area including Estepona's Selwo Safari park and other zoos and aquariums.
BEACHES: Estepona boasts several blue flag beaches with lifeguards and facilities during the summer months.
GOLF: Golfers will enjoy the many beautiful courses, many of which offer very reasonable green fees.
