Description

Looking for a bit of peace & quiet, yet close to the beach, eateries, supermarkets and a 500-year old town on the Costa Del Sol?

Fed up with those huge modern developments with endless screaming kids, crowded pool and gardens?

Maybe we have exactly what you are seeking.

A very popular corner South and West-facing apartment with great sea views in a large, handsome villa overlooking the Ocean. The Villa comprises a total of 4 apts. There are 2 x 2 bed, 1 x 1 bed and the best thing is that the owners (the writers) live on site in the 4th unit and they are really great, knowledgeable people !!!

The pool can be heated October - April (extra fee), there is table-tennis; free WiFi; a very large floral/cactus garden, free on-street parking and limited English / French as well as hundreds of German satellite TV channels as well as a free-to-use 450+ film library.

The owners have lived here for 13 years and know some greatest places to visit and eat at.

They currently have 40 reviews on Flipkey (part of TripAdvisor), most of which are 5*

Apartments are all well equipped and always spotless. We are in a quiet road which is virtually traffic-free. Aldi & Mercadona supermarkets are within a 3 mins drive as is the local beach and a restaurant or two.

The old town of Estepona is 12 minute drive and the beautiful Port is even closer.

Wander around the cobbled streets of whitewashed houses strewn with geraniums, have a drink in one of the plazas and eat in the tapas bars or restaurants.

Within a short drive we have a lovely beach (Playa Cristo); 2 white villages and Selwo Safari Park.

We are within a (max) 2-ish hour drive of the following:-

Marbella; Puerto Banus; Gibraltar; Ronda; Cadiz; Seville; Cordoba; Granada & Malaga. Gibraltar & Malaga Airports are within an hours drive.

If you have any questions at all or would like rates etc., contact us via H/L.

Hope to see ya real soon!!!

Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol 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 and 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 and Olufson and 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.

Don Pedro

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 11 pm 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!!!
