The Community and Surrounding Areas

This quiet residential beachfront community with manicured tropical gardens and two swimming pools comprises apartments and town houses of excellent quality construction in the traditional Andalusian style “pueblo blanco”. Assigned parking space is available.

The location is convenient to the new highway, 50 min. drive from the Malaga airport and only 20 min. drive to Marbella or Gibraltar. A few minutes away by car is Puerto Deportivo of Estepona (the Marina) and just a few kilometers away is the historic center of Estepona where you can enjoy exquisite dining and nightlife. There are several great restaurants within a 10-minute walk. Two five-star hotels, featuring health spas, shops, restaurants, white sandy beaches with lounges and umbrellas, and much more, are also within walking distance from the apartment. Other activities in the area include: golf, sailing, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, dolphin watching, horse riding, safari, nature parks, museums, historic sites, etc. A convenience store located within a 10-minute walk is open 24/7.

The ubiquitous festivals (fiestas) are more than likely to occur somewhere nearby during your stay in Estepona since Andalusian cities and towns celebrate over 3,000 fiestas each year. You may also enjoy such typically Spanish art forms as flamenco and corrida. Please come and treat yourself to this unique colorful and festive ambiance of Estepona and what an unforgettable experience it will be!
