Cosy one bedroom apartment situated in a very popular urbanisation overlooking Estepona Port. Convenient for all the bars and restaurants of the port area and just 10 minutes walk along the newly landscaped and paved Promenade to Estepona Old Town with it's lovely picturesque streets so car hire is not necessary to see all the local sites.
Estepona is a little more traditional and Spanish than some of the other resorts on the Costa del Sol and enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate all year round with bright sunny days for most of the year. Gibraltar is 45 minutes by car, the mountain town of Ronda and the lovely village of Mijas are just 60 minutes. The spectacular town of Granada and the Sierra Nevada ski area are also within a couple of hours drive.
Estepona has an excellent beach and promenade and a stroll round the old town is a definite “must”. A local market is held every Wednesday on the outskirts of town and a local artisans market takes place in Estepona Port on a Sunday morning.

The Costa del Sol region
The Costa de Sol can be divided into two sections, with Malaga city at its centre. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province.
The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena, plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella. This section has a very international feel, with visitors and residents from all over the world.
But if you're coming to the coast on holiday, don't miss Malaga city, which has reinvented itself in recent years as a cultural and gastronomic centre. It has an unparalleled offering of museums, including the Picasso Museum, a buzzing contemporary arts scene, and top-class tapas bars and restaurants.
Estepona is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer season. It's located on the western side of the Costa del Sol, next to Marbella and San Pedro. The name of Estepona comes from the cult to the Goddess Epona by the Celts, later on the Romans added the “Est” to designate this localization.
