Location description from owner
The Costa del Sol region
There is so much to see and do on the Costa del Sol you really will be spoilt for choice! Our apartment is in the ideal location for a quiet relaxing holiday or for those of you who want to get 'out & about'. Here are a few suggestions to put on your 'to do' list!
Casares is a beautiful white washed Andalucian mountain village and is only 15 mins by car. Spend the day experiencing a traditional Spanish 'pueblo'. Park your car as you enter Casares and take one of the many footpaths that lead down into the village. Visit the Plaza de Espana, the Virgin Del Rosario chapel and if you are feeling very fit climb 1400 feet above sea level to the old fortress.
Ronda is only an hour away by car and is one of the most distinctive and beautiful towns in Spain. Make a day of it by driving the winding, but breathtaking scenic route from Manilva, through Gaucin. Make a beeline for the 18th century Puente Neuvo bridge which straddles the 100m chasm below. The bullring is the oldest in Spain and with its underground museum is well worth a visit.
Gibraltar is only 25 mins away, don't forget your passport to cross the border. You can take one of the famous 'Rock Tours' to meet the Barbary Apes, explore St Michael's Cave and the Great Siege Tunnels. If shopping is more you thing, then you can 'shop till you drop' in this truly different shopping experience!
Duquesa Village is only a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk away from the Blue Flag Beach at La Duquesa. This is a large sandy beach, perfect for families dotted with traditional Spanish Chiringuitos (or beach bars) serving beautiful fresh fish at good prices. From here you can take the promenade walk all the way to Sabinillas about a mile, to enjoy the views to Estepona and the rest of the New Golden Mile. En route there are lots of children's play areas, benches and bars for you to stop at to take the weight off for a bit!
Puerto de la Duquesa has a variety of great bars and restaurants, as well as boutique gift shops, internet cafe and a bakery. It still manages to retain some of its true Andalusian charm.
Manilva is a few kilometers inland from Puerto de la Duquesa and is well known for producing sweet wines. It holds a celebrated wine festival in September each year. In the autumn you can stop to buy grapes or raisins from the locals by the roadside. The town has a history dating back to Roman times and today you can still visit the Roman Sulphur Baths and Aqueduct.

“Back from 1 week holiday and it was absolutely brilliant!”
Stayed at Duquesa Village for 1 week and our stay could not have been better. Traveled with my 3 children ages 19, 20, and 22. The apartment was lovely, quiet, and nicely situated with swimming pool nearby. Duquesa Beach and Puerto Duqesa were 3 min drive or 15 min scenic walk with several great bars and restaurants. Estepona, Marbella/Puerto Banus, Sotogrande, and Gibraltar were all within 20 minute drive. Most importantly Michelle and Alex were superb with communication and helpful tips. A special thanks to their agent, Mark, who was so helpful in getting us situated in the apartment. I highly recommend this apartment and will certainly be back in the future. Thanks again to Michelle and Alex.
“A Real Home from Home”
The apartment was beautiful and had everything we could have needed; it was a real home from home. It was situated a 5min drive from the beach and local town which was perfect. The apartment felt very secure with a security guard 24/7 at the main entrance. There was also secure underground parking. The swimming pools were immaculate and the baby splash pool was perfect for our 2 year old daughter. I would definitely recommend this apartment to others.
Owner's reply: I am so pleased you had a great holiday, also that you felt safe in our apartment & around the rest of Duquesa Village. It can be stressful travelling with a young child, so I'm glad you found everything 'child friendly' and clean. Something less for you to have to worry about! I hope we can welcome you back to our apartment again soon.
“You'll have a lovely time!”
Firstly the owners are extremely helpful with everything, whatever your query they're bound to have the answer. The apartment had everything you could possibly need, on a practical level (dishwasher tablets, washing powders etc) and also DVD's, magazines, Inflatables and tons of local information. As far as we're concerned you'd need a car for the location, in the summer heat it was much too far to walk up and down to the port, it's a fair distance, especially with children. Taxi's aren't very expensive though so you could walk down of an evening and get a taxi back for not very much. If we hadn't had a car that's what we would have done. The pool area immediately below the apartment was kept very clean, as were the other pools, (there are 6 around and about) We only visited one other, they vary on how busy they are. There is no pool noise in the evening, even though you overlook one. There was a bit of noise from some Spanish residents/visitors, but this was intermittent and not a problem, my sister didn't even notice it The extras we liked were: The extensive local information;The shutters on the windows, shutting out all the light; The jet bath; The cupboard with essentials in it (Olive oil, salt, tea bags etc) The Magazines and films; We didn't use them but there were hairdryers for use too; The Air-conditioning; The secure underground Parking; The Decor; The very helpful & friendly owners. We didn't have any problems with it, but we were a bit anxious about the electricity being metered. We didn't know until we arrived, it is set to an amount for your stay and if you use more you can top it up with Euros. We had a reasonable amount left when we checked out, but I did keep looking at it. It is a good base for a family holiday, around the pool. The other people we met, all had cars too. The location if you have a car is excellent for getting to almost anywhere, Gibraltar, Estepona, Puerto Banus and inland to Rhonda etc. We do wish we'd booked two weeks really.
Owner's reply: I am so glad all the hours we spent talking on the phone paid off and you were able to really make the most of your holiday. We are always happy to help guests prepare for their stay and once we get talking about all the things the area has to offer we can't stop! We normally take a leisurely stroll down to the Marina, have a nice big lunch and then get a taxi back - we are on holiday after all. The walk back is normally nicer in the evenings when the temperature has dropped a bit. The location is why we love Duquesa Village so much, you're close enough if you want a piece of the action, but far enough away to be able to relax without being disturbed - perfect! If you fancy staying for 2 weeks, there's always next year!
“Beautiful Apartment set in a fantastic location”
We spent just over a week in Michelle & Alex's apartment in Puerto Duquesa. The booking process was very simple and Michelle sent over a lot of information about the area and the apartment prior to booking. The apartment itself had plenty of room for our party of 4 adults and 1 child. It had everything we were looking for in terms of facilities and space. A lovely well equipped kitchen with plates, cups, bowls, cutlery, pans, salad bowls etc. 2 beautiful bathrooms and bedrooms and a lovely outside seating area where we sat to eat or have a drink before going out for meals. There are a number of well kept pool areas for swimming and sunbathing and just down the hill there are a couple of bars and small shops. The apartment is located about a 25-30 minute walk from Duquesa, it is on a fairly steep hill so the walk back from the marina takes a little longer. Duquesa marina has a wealth of restaurants and bars ranging from Italian, Chinese, Thai, Argentinian (beautiful steaks), Traditional Spanish etc so there is something for all tastes. There are a number of supermarkets nearby and a lovely beach. The only issues we had during our stay were a fault with the cistern in the main bathroom and the electric meter was set incorrectly and overcharging us. These issues were quickly resolved by Mark (apartment maintenance) Overall a wonderful holiday and we would highly recommend the apartment.
Owner's reply: First of all, apologies for the error with the electric meter. Unfortunately our key holder set it at the wrong rate at the beginning of your stay. We give all our guests 200kWh of electricity and normally this is more than enough to last you for your holiday. It is very rare that our guests end up paying any extra. However, I know that our key holder realised their mistake (they're only human, after all!) and re-set everything for you. It obviously didn't affect your holiday - it sounds like you had a great time! We will certainly try the Argentinian restaurant next time we are in Duquesa - always great to try somewhere new, especially from a guest recommendation!
“A wonderful well equipped apartment in a beautiful setting”
We highly recommend this apartment and its helpful and friendly owners who provided us with lots of local knowledge, insights of where to visit and recommended several restaurants in the area. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped; the jacuzzi was a real bonus! Our balcony overlooked one of the shared pools which our children thoroughly enjoyed (on a daily basis!). We took a couple of day trips one to Casares a beautiful white town and also to the very fascinating town of Ronda. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return in the not too distant future…..Many thanks!
Owner's reply: Hi! We are glad you had a great time and your children enjoyed the pools. Ronda is a great day out, next time we are at Duquesa Village we want to take the scenic train from San Roque to Ronda as we have been told the view is stunning.
“Everything you want for a great holiday is there or nearby.”
This appartment overlooks the pool so it's fantastic to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine in the evening. Lots of villages nearby to visit. Duquesa has lots of lovely shops and restaurants. The market overlooks the beatiful sandy beach which has a wide promenade. Beautiful. Make sure you visit Duquesa marina at night. It's even more beautiful than in the daytime. Don't worry about packing too many clothes there is a washing machine which was so handy to just put a load on in the middle of the week. I am happy to recommend this holiday. You will need to hire a car but travelling around is really easy.
Owner's reply: Hi, Thanks so much for our first TripAdvisor review! We also love sitting in the bars overlooking the marina at night with a long drink - chillaxing!
