---------------------------------------------------------------

Very centrally located (car not necessary) well decorated apartment overlooking garden / pools / marina / SEA. Quiet spot on 3rd floor of building with 2 lifts & underground car space (extra). Never been to Estepona? It is about the last town on this coast that is still primarily Spanish. You won't find burger bars, almost no pubs, few souvenir shops etc. Lots of tapas and small Spanish bars as well as cafes spilling out onto the streets serving delicious Spanish coffee and traditional fayre. The Port area is very colourful with plenty of places to eat & drink as well as some shops and 2 supermarkets.

There are a wonderful array of boats bobbing in the marina. Estepona is still an active fishing port. If you go on your terrace around 5am, you will see the fishing boats & trawlers returning with their nights catch. The local restaurants and fishmongers sell this fresh on the day. The old town is my favourite. Quaint and buzzing with plazas, windy streets with lots of independent shops and eateries. The town has recently decorated and improved many of the side streets with cobbled paving as well as colour-themed flower pots. Doesn't sound wildly exciting, but when you do a little roaming, you may appreciate it.

We chose to live in Estepona because of all the above, but also because if you, as a tourist, look at a map some of the places you may want to visit will include Gibraltar; Cadiz; Tarifa; Seville; Jerez; Ronda; Cordoba; Antequera; Granada & Malaga. Estepona is within easy reach of all of them.

The (second to) bottom line is that if you like the Englishness of Fuengirola / Benidorm / Torremolinas / Benalmadena, you may not enjoy Estepona. If you want somewhere more authentic, give Estepona a try. You may even like it. (Please note that wi-fi & u/g parking are extra.)

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 farm, tiny little villages, the odd donkey or two, old men sitting in the 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 catamaranfrom Algeciras to Tangiers in Morocco and explore the Casbah & souk for the day.

Estepona

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