The Andalucia region

El Presidente is located a very short walk from the beach and has very many restaurants within easy walking distance. It is set in mature gardens with five swimming pools.

Situated just six minutes in the Estepona direction from prestigious Puerto Banus, near Marbella, Costa Del Sol, Spain, El Presidente is a beach front very quiet estate of white luxury apartments and villas in the ornate Moorish Andalucía style, separated from the nearest highway by a woodland of pine trees.

The estate is based on the famous Alhambra gardens in Grenada, with many reflecting pools and fountains. It's set in exceptional park-like tropical grounds of palm trees and lawns, and each area of the complex is served by its own garden and swimming pool (four in total, one heated in winter and shoulder seasons) plus there is a magnificent huge main swimming pool in free form shape, set in lawns with an island in the middle. All pool areas are supplied with sun beds.

Our penthouse apartment is very private- one side overlooks the lawns and one of the pools and the other looks out over the wooded estate towards the sea and mountains.

On the upper level is a furnished roof terrace reached from the living room by a spiral staircase- a great place for breakfast, sunbathing or an evening drink while watching the sun set over the mountains, and if you are tall (!) you can even see Gibraltar and Morocco in the distance across the sea on a clear day.

The main level comprises a very spacious and fully equipped living area with seating and dining for six, and we also have DVD, CD/Radio/tape/ipod player, satellite TV with 13 English speaking channels plus many others.

There is a large fully fitted marble and tiled kitchen with all usual appliances including dishwasher, washing machine and microwave oven. Find appliance information in one of the Kitchen drawers.

The huge main bedroom has a king size double bed and the other bedroom has two single beds, and each bedroom has its own small private Juliet balcony with pleasant views of woodland and mountains, and each has an en suite marble bathroom. (one can also be accessible to the living room). Each bathroom has a bidet and toilet, while the guest bathroom has a bath with shower over and a single basin, the master bathroom has a bath plus separate shower and twin basins.

For outdoor eating, a fully furnished terrace opens off the living area through folding doors, with views over the nearby pool and lawns. There is a gas barbeque, and can be fully covered by the extendible canopy.

The apartment is automatically heated and air conditioned, flooring is marble with rugs throughout, and furnishings and equipment are of a good standard and include a sofa bed for additional sleeping, so the apartment sleeps six comfortably.

We have four tennis courts, a short football pitch, basketball court, two paddle (short) tennis courts, and for golfers, practice driving nets set in the woods beside the apartment. Free wifi access close by.

You will find the nearby Roberto's Beach a short walk down the road beside the apartment building. Here you will find a nice children's play area with swings, slides, see-saws and climbing-frames, plus another football pitch! A beautiful new beachside café/spa has opened in 2013-

Along the beach beside the El Presidente complex are two other local chinguiritos (beach bar/restaurants) within an easy walk. We love La-Vela-Azure, right by the waves and a great place to relax, sit and gaze out to sea, often with a glimpse of Gibraltar and Morocco. And the kids can eat as much as they want of anything €10. You can rent beach loungers and umbrellas here also.

The beach in front of El Presidente is remarkably unspoilt, and may possibly be the last remaining piece of wilderness beachfront along this coast, much as we imagine it all must have been before there was any development. The strip of Mediterranean pine woodland separating the beach from any property development means that you can't see any buildings from the beach.

If you take the road opposite our apartment heading east and then turn right, you will go around the tennis courts and when turn left past the Crowne Plaza Hotel, you will find Andalucía Car Rental plus many restaurants within walking distance (Thai, Indian, Chinese, Spanish and English) along that side of the main road, including the Robin Hood pub. Cinnamon Indian restaurant is highly recommended for value for money.

A little further, there is also a smallish supermarket (Man Friday) for fresh bread and most supplies, including drinks, a hairdresser, a bank and money machine.

Marbella, Malaga

Have a look at

The Marbella region of Andalucía's Costa del Sol is centred around the town of Marbella and its main port, Puerto Banus, and is renowned as a particularly prestigious resort area on the coast between the mountains and the beaches in the southern-most part of Spain.

Close by the beach are expensive developments of villas and apartments, while the valleys running up to the mountains are filled with beautiful golf courses.

There are over 30 golf courses in the nearby area, one of them just five minutes away, and several tennis ranches in the valleys.

Marbella town itself has often been described as the new St Tropez, and has a historical centre of quaint little lanes and shady marble paved squares full of pavement cafes, as well as exceptional shopping, and with all major designers well represented. Above the beautiful sandy beach, the promenade here is the place to see and be seen.

Seven minutes by car from the apartment, Marbella's Puerto Banus marina is based around a harbour full of the world's most exotic yachts, and the waterfront is lined with lively restaurants and bars where you can often spot the rich and famous who holiday in this area. The town is renowned for its nightlife, and you can even do your shopping past midnight in summer!

About Day Trips . . .

Within day trip range are Seville, Cordoba, Jerez, Cadiz, Gibraltar, Ronda, Malaga and Nerja, and a bit further, winter skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains. A 50 minute drive to Tarifa and half an hour on the ferry takes you to Morocco's Tangier in North Africa! (CostAfrica is the coach tour company to use if you want to be guided cheaply)

"Smart penthouse apartment in a tropical complex"

The apartment was everything the pictures show. Having stayed in El Presidente we knew the resort feel and layout, it's based on a modern interpretation of Alhambra in Granada. The penthouse apartment was very clean, well equipped (even tennis rackets and balls) and is in a nice quiet area overlooking one of the smaller pools. The owners comments, places to visit and eat were a useful addition and we were really sad to leave which is always the sign of a really enjoyable stay.

"Great holiday in a beautiful location."

Lovely apartment with all home comforts set in amazing, well tended grounds within a short walk of the beach and two Chiguritos. The 5 swimming pools on site were well kept and there were plenty of sunbeds available. A short walk away there was a good choice of restaurants and some shops. The only downside for us was the noise from the main road about 100m away as the crow flies. Further into the grounds and by most of the pools and on the beach it wasn't audible. (We live in the middle of nowhere and are only used to occasional passing farm traffic.) We had a very relaxing holiday with wonderful weather at the end of September and beginning of October.
