The Andalucia region
Estepona is a town and municipality on the Costa del Sol, southern Spain. It is located in the province of Málaga, Andalucia. A district which covers an area of 137 square kilometers.It covers a fertile valley crossed by small streams and a mountainous areas dominated by the Sierra Bermeja, which reaches 1,449 m at the peak of Los Reales.
Estepona is renowned for its beaches, which stretch along some 21 km of coastline. It is a popular resort and holiday destination.
Due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, Estepona has a micro climate with over 325 days of sunshine per year.
Estepona now has many interesting facets which make it a popular and contemporary all year round holiday destination including two EC Blue Flag beaches, a modern sports marina with many tapas bars and restaurants and a white-walled town offering shopping and picturesque squares.
It also boasts many sporting facilities and is perfect for families. There is a Sunday market in the scenic port, selling clothing, bags and many other artefacts. There is a larger market held every Wednesday, next to the football stadium. This is very popular and great for bagging a bargain!
Our property is only a 5 minute drive from Benahavis, which is a Spanish village situated between Marbella, Estepona and Ronda, where it is located seven kilometres from the coast. The approach is a very windy road, with magnificent scenery following the path of the Guadalmina River. You will meander through a spectacular gorge which provides a popular spot for rock climbers.
It is renowned for its restaurants, often known as the dining room of the Costa del Sol. This is certainly Andalucian kitchen at its best! There is something for everyone, from traditional Spanish Tapas bars to luxury Restaurants for those special occasions. Prices to suit all pockets.
It is a very picturesque village with incredible mountain and sea views.
Benahavis is one of the most mountainous villages on the Western Costa del sol, located on the Southern face of La Serrania de Ronda mountain range and yet only 10 minutes from the local beaches.
Certainly a hidden gem and definitely worth a visit!!

These penthouses are superbly equipped to a very high standard and very comfortable. Although in a quiet location they are close to a big supermarket and not too far from restaurants and bars and are… More

We had rented another apartment elsewhere direct with the owner which, was dreadful and a total mistake by us. I met Helen & Jason through Bel - Air Tennis Club. We told them how miserable we were wit… More

Spent a fortnight here with two 14 yr old girls. Apartment was lovely with all mod cons and lots of space. Lots of helpful info on places to see and restaurants and shops to try. While slightly out of the way it was not too far to Porto Banus for the teenagers but far enough away for the adults. Jason the agent was also very helpful and we would certainly return.
We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday!

"It's our 3rd visit to these apartments and it won't be our last. Everything you need for a quiet relaxing break."
Great holiday package arranged by Jason. Third apartment we've stayed in this complex. All very high standard and great value for money. Very spacious. 10 minute walk to the tennis club. Car required but a great location for visiting nearby towns and villages.
Thank you for staying in our apartment and for your positive review. We aim to please and encourage our guests to return.
