Are you looking for somewhere exclusive - peaceful in gorgeous surroundings, a stunning sea view and only 3 apartments sharing an 8 metre pool (Heated Oct - Apr, extra charge) beautiful half-acre floral garden, table tennis, aircon/heating in both bedrooms; free wi-fi and a 400-film library? Then look no further.

Villa Tranquilla is a very large terracotta coloured house on a gentle slope in an attractive development of detached houses, just a 6 minute drive from Estepona Port.

Nearby are beaches; golf courses; restaurants & supermarkets as well as the very attractive very Spanish town of Estepona.

Villa Tranquilla has been providing memorable vacations for 9 years now. We live in the 4th apartment and ensure the smooth running of the villa, keeping areas swept, pool clean and a free concierge service helping clients with their plans. We are never intrusive and keep very much in the background. We are pleased to help with places to go, best way to get there, special places to eat & reserving tables. A concierge service, but not at a 5* price.

We have lived here for 11 years and can suggest unusual places to eat and visit that may not be mentioned in standard tourist guide books etc.

You can read currently 102 reviews on TripAdvisor. Just fill in "Estepona" then under "Sort By Default" click on "No. of Reviews" Simples.

The villa suits individual travellers, couples, families and everyone in-between and can accommodate 10-12 in the three apartments. It is really somewhere to unwind from the pressures of the credit crunch and an often too hectic life-style back home.

Just arrive, unpack and pour a glass of cava to enjoy in front of the sparkling pool & fantastic Mediterranean view. Enjoy !!!

The Andalucia region

Welcome to the warmest, sunniest region in Europe.

This coastline is full of holiday resorts that appeal especially to Northern Europeans.

Almost every town and resort is full of cheap hotels, high-rise apartment blocks, pubs,

discos & Sky Sports bars as well as Burger joints, nasty souvenir shops and the like.

If that doesn't sound too appealing, I urge you to try Estepona, the exception to the rule.

Go inland a mile or two and you will come across the real Spain with olive groves, avacado

and fruit farms, tiny little villages, the odd donkey or two, old men sitting in the village square smoking

and talking about old times when 50 pesetas would get you a 3 course meal with vino.

The celebrity world of Puerto Banus is about 20 mins by car and Marbella is another 12 minutes further on.

Both are worth a visit even if it is just to see how the 'other half' lives. Count how many Ferraris pass you.

Look at the Bang & Olufson & Dior shops. A different world !!!

Take your passport and visit Gibraltar (45 mins) where there is a Morrisons for those Brits who need a slice

of home food now & then. See the apes, stalagmites, gun turrets and cigarettes at 75% off U.K. prices.

See the Roman ruins and fantastic beaches at Tarifa where they hold wind-surfing contests. Take the catamaran

from Algeciras to Tangiers in Morocco and explore the Casbah & souk for the day.

The Costa del Sol is known for its sun, sea, sand & sangria.

Most areas are very touristy, package holiday and over-commercialised with

fish & chips / union jacks / pubs all over the place.

ESTEPONA IS DIFFERENT. We searched for over a year to find the right villa

in the ideal location.

Estepona town & environs is around 90% Spanish.

There are practically no tacky souvenir shops or the "British Influence" here.

The old town is charming, quaint & delightful with cafes & restaurants spilling

onto the pavements, geranium boxes on the windowsills of the whitewashed

houses and a reasonable choice of shops & bars, nearly all Spanish owned.

The Port is still bringing in daily catches of fish that are auctioned each morning

on the quayside. This fresh fish & shellfish finds its way to the local fishmongers,

supermarkets & restaurants. The Port has a great selection of eateries & drinkeries?

The area claims an average 320 days of sun which is not too far from the truth.

The town was founded over 500 years ago and although there is little standing from

that era, there are some very attractive buildings notably the Clock tower and the main church

as well as the charming indoor market.

On booking, we will send you "A Walk Around Estepona Old Town" and other paraphernalia

to help you to plan certain things in advance. Selwo Safari Park is 10 minutes from the town centre

and well worth a visit (ask us about 2 for 1 tickets). There are 4 mini museums in the bullring that

should be born in mind if you are here for any of the 45 days with no sun.

(Apologies for any duplication above. Combination of two critiques)


Don Pedro is a well established estate of detached individually designed villas. It is located opposite Hotel Elba which is a 5* deluxe hotel on Km 151 of the N340/A7/E15. 2 excellent restaurants are less than a 10-minute walk and Aldi is about 13 minutes away with Mercadona (supermarkets) about a 20 mins walk or 3 mins drive.

Festivities take place on Jan 5 (Parade of the 3 Kings); 2nd week in Feb - Carnival in town centre; Feb 28 Andalucia Day; Easter (Parade of the Virgin Mary); Mid May (San Isidro - Saint of Farmers); Small Feria (Fair) for a week in May; June 23 Evening on the beach celebrating the cutting of St Johns moustache;

Early July is the week-long main feria; July 16 The Day of the Virgin Del Carmen (Procession by the fishermen); August 15 Day of Virgin Mary - procession; Oct 12 Columbus Day (Spain's National Day); Oct 31/Nov 1 - Halloween/All Saints Day; Dec 6 Constitution Day; Dec 8-9 Saints Day (Parade through the streets); Dec 24 Christmas Eve.

And it is no wonder with all these festivals & days off that Spain is going through a financial crisis !!!

Enjoy walking along the beach and getting sand between your toes? How about a drink, snack or meal in a thatched beach-side restaurant (chirringuito) on Playa Cristo or Playa De la Rada? Go for a swim, snorkel, Scuba, deep sea fishing, dolphin watching,

a meal or tapas in the colourful Port.

Stroll along the promenade (Passeo de Maritimo) from the Port to the old town which is a real delight. (No, I'm not just saying that because I'm trying to entice you to book with us, it really is.) When there, you can explore this area via a special walk that we have mapped out for our clients. Go and eat in some exceptional eateries that you will find in our "Where To Go And Eat" brochure.

A lot of the coast is sadly a sprawling mess, especially between Malaga and Marbella.

West of Marbella and the buildings become lower and less frequent.

Estepona was founded some 500 years ago. Nothing from that area survives, but the old

town in particular has a beautiful church and clock tower square. There is a cool covered

market as well as two open air markets Wednesday & Sunday.

Besides miles of sandy beach, Estepona is famous for the Selwo Safari Park which, for a local attraction is surprisingly good.

There are small white villages (Pueblo Blancos) to wander around and sample the local drinks & food there. Discover Casares; Manilva; Gaucin; Istan & Ojen which are all within a 30 minute drive. Play tennis under floodlights 10 minutes away and of course you can't drive 5 minutes without bumping into a golf course. Estepona Golf is inexpensive; Valle Romana, designed by Seve Ballesteros is 5 mins away and the new home of the Volvo Matchplay - Finca Cortesin is only 10 minutes in the car. There is a wooded area not far away with a picnic area. Twice a year, we have a Feria(fair) and the circus comes to town also. There is a bull-ring that is used for bullfights, but also for the occasional concert and Sunday craft fair.

We have lived here for 11 years now and as much as we enjoy much of the things above, we really like to go for a walk along

the prom on a summers evening, maybe 11pm and see the Spanish families all together walking perhaps with a dog or pushing a pram. Financial crisis or not, the thing that keeps the Spanish sane is the bond of the family unit and here on the prom is the place where it is still evident. Kids who had their siesta in the early afternoon are wide awake after midnight and play on the swings. It is simple, it doesn't cost anything but while you are here, give it a try once. Have a drink or a coffee or tapas as places are open until the early hours.

Do hope you haven't fallen asleep reading this. Come and experience what the typical tourist misses out on. Real Estepona!!!

There are so many wonderful comments to make about Neville, Lynne and their Villa. They have thought of "everything" you could ever need or want on a vacation. Our "starter kit" in the frig was a great surprise with coffee, tea, sugar, milk, and juice to get us started (imagine that). They were/are the perfect hosts. First, the Villa is spectacular and the views are incrediable. The grounds were well manicured with palms, flowers, arches, and a small path to wander around the English garden. There is a small hilltop of breathtaking views to enjoy your morning coffee on the benches for you. As you look down from the Villa you see the beautiful blue Mediterrean water, their gardens, and large heated pool.

The apartment was stocked with anything you could possibly need and it was immaculant. The apartment offers a large binder of research from the area: tourist attractions, restaurants, etc. They offer a typed list of movies available to you also. The binder was so organized and efficient. Such an added touch.

Then there is Nevile...quietly working around the property making everything meticulous. He was there for us whenever we needed information (and we needed alot and asked him something everyday). (So gracious). His recommendations were superb. We enjoyed every restaurant he recommended from Paella, Italian, and Seafood. The restaurant de la Mar was our favorite. He also recommened a private guide for us when we traveled to Tangier and organized everything for us. What service. The guide was awesome and we were so glad Neville made that suggestion.

We went from Madrid, Seville, Marbella, Malaga, Estepona, Gibraltar, and Tangier. Estepona was by far our favorite. The small fishing village, beach, winding streets, shops, fabulous restaurants and a mixture of Europeans made this our favorite....and of course Neville, Lynne and the Villa were the icing on the cake.

This Villa comes highly recommened from us!!!!! It rates with any 5 star hotel I have stayed at...only more personal by far.
