Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
An amazing apartment in the beautiful El Campanario complex situated on the marvelous New Golden Mile, being just a short 5 minute drive to the famous Puerto Banus and a little further is the traditional town and port of Estepona. El Campanario is an incredible base for your holiday in the Marbella area, the complex is private and secluded with immaculate tropical gardens and boasts three incredible swimming pools, each with a separate baby pool, sun beds and showers and all gated with no traffic so very private and secure. The location of El Campanario is fabulous – walking distance (10 minutes) to the commercial zones of El Pilar and Diana Park where you have lots of shops and other amenities plus many cafes, bars and restaurants with numerous dining options. The beach is also close-by, over the footbridge of the main road, perhaps a 20 minutes walk from the apartment or just a few minutes in the car.
Staying at El Campanario truly offers something to suit all requirements - this apartment is ideal for families or groups of friends wanting to chill out, relax and enjoy the fabulous all year round Costa del Sol warm climate. But just 5 minutes in the car is Puerto Banus, best known for its bustling nightlife with smart restaurants, busy bars and exclusive clubs, overlooking the impressive marina filled with the most amazing yachts and leisure boats. Alternatively, Estepona is just 10km away in the opposite direction with the most amazing empty tranquil beaches spread along this 10km stretch of the coast.
EL CAMPANARIO GOLF & COUNRTY CLUB
The bonus of staying at El Campanario is having the facilities of the El Campanario Golf & Country Club right on your door step. Just opposite the front entrance gates to the apartments, so literally 2 minutes walk from the door, is a 9 hole golf course, paddle and tennis courts, fully equipped gym with ultra modern machines, an amazing spa with sauna and indoor swimming pool, beauty therapy and massage rooms plus a wonderful outdoor pool set in private gardens with sun loungers overlooking the golf course. This is a private club and you do have to be a member to enjoy these incredible facilities – a short-term family membership is available and the typical cost is €165 for a couple with 2 children for one week. This is an amazing price for unlimited access to all of these facilities without additional fees (other than for beauty & massage treatments which are payable extra). The club house bar and restaurant is open every day to the general public, and has regular entertainment.
Please note that the three communal swimming pools at the apartment complex are free and are insde the apartment complex - the country club swimming pool and its other facilities are independant from the apartment complex and membership charges apply ONLY for use of the country club facilities.
