Happy with large, unattractive, multi-block developments with crowds & noise? There are thousands of these on the internet.
If instead you are looking for somewhere special - peaceful in gorgeous surroundings with only 3 apartments sharing an 8 metre pool (Heated Oct - Apr, extra charge) beautiful half-acre floral garden, table tennis, free parking, wi-fi and a 450-film library, then look no further.
Villa Tranquilla has been providing memorable vacations for 13 years now. We live in the 4th apartment and ensure the smooth running of the villa, keeping areas swept, pool clean and helping clients with their plans. We are never intrusive and keep very much in the background.
However, because we have lived here for 14 years, we can suggest unusual places to eat and visit that may not be mentioned in standard tourist guide books etc.
The villa suits individual travellers, couples, families and everyone in between. It is really somewhere to unwind from the pressures of the credit crunch and an often too hectic life-style back home.
The location is very peaceful with almost no passing traffic. Within a 10-15 mins walk, there are 2 restaurants; an Aldi supermarket a 5* hotel and the beach. A little further and you come across a Mercadona Supermarket and the best beach in the area as well as Estepona Port.
The apartment ideally suits a couple although we have had parents and 2 children on z-beds.
Enter via the covered terrace into the main room with a sitting area with "j" shaped cream leather sofa; TV/VCR/DVD (limited UK channels); dining area with table & 4 chairs opening to spacious well fitted kitchen area. The room has a large sliding window to the terrace and wonderful views of the pool & sea beyond.
The bedroom is large with a sea view; king-size bed (can be divided); extra TV; writing desk; table/stool/mirror; 2 double wardrobes. Door to shower room with shower cubicle; WC; bidet & wash basin.
Just arrive, unpack and pour a glass of cava to enjoy in front of the sparkling pool. Enjoy !!!

The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol is known for its sun, sea, sand & sangria. Most areas are very touristy, package holiday and overcommercialised with fish & chips / union jacks / pubs all over the place. ESTEPONA IS DIFFERENT. We searched for over a year to find the right villa in the ideal location. Estepona town & environs is around 90% Spanish. There are practically no tacky souvenir shops or the British Influence here. The old town is charming, quaint & delightful with cafes & restaurants spilling onto the pavements, geranium boxes on the windowsills of the whitewashed houses and a reasonable choice of shops & bars, nearly all Spanish owned. The Port is still bringing in daily catches of fish that are auctioned each morning on the quayside. This fresh fish & shellfish finds its way to the local fishmongers, supermarkets & restaurants. The Port has a great selection of eateries & drinkeries. The area claims an average 320 days of sun which is not too far from the truth. The town was founded over 500 years ago and although there is little standing from that era, there are some very attractive buildings notably the Clocktower and the church as well as the indoor market. On booking, we will send you 'A Walk Around Estepona Old Town' and other paraphernalia to help you to plan certain things in advance. Selwo Safari Park is 12 minutes from the town centre and well worth a visit (ask us about 2 for 1 tickets). There are 4 mini museums in the bullring that should be born in mind if you are here for any of the 45 days with no sun.
Feastivities take place on Jan 5 (Parade of the 3 Kings); 2nd week in Feb - Carnival in town centre; Feb 28 Andalucia Day; Easter (Parade of the Virgin Mary); Mid May (San Isidrio - Saint of Farmers); Small Feria (Fair) for a week in May; June 23 Evening on the beach celebrating the cutting of St Johns moustache;
Early July is the week-long main feria; July 16 The Day of the Virgin del Carmen (Procession by the fishermen); August 15 Day of Virgin Mary - procession; Oct 12 Columbus Day (Spain's National Day); Oct 31/Nov 1 - Halloween/All Saints Day; Dec 6 Constitution Day; Dec 8-9 Saints Day (Parade through the streets); Dec 24 Christmas Eve.
And we wonder with all these festivals & days off why Spain are going through a financial crisis !!!
