We are all guilty of it. We tend to focus so much on Marbella that we often overlook its smaller sibling, Estepona. It may not have the name recognition or glamorous allure of Marbella, but situated a mere 15 minutes west along the same Mediterranean coast, Estepona offers many of the same pleasures – and at a different price level. What’s more, it is an ideal base for those who enjoy a more authentically Andalusian environment.
There are several beachfront apartment complexes in Estepona, offering stunning sea views and panoramic vistas of Gibraltar and North Africa, home luxuries, and a lively Spanish town on your doorstep and a beautiful sandy beach at your feet. All that Marbella and Puerto Banús have to offer is just a short drive away, but in addition come the golf courses, marina, horseriding centres, natural scenery and ambience of Estepona.
This compact cosmopolitan town still retains the charm of whitewashed Andalusian settlements, combined with a sense of civic pride that has seen it win international acclaim for its cultural, architectural and beautification projects. The apartments find themselves in the heart of it all, at a few paces from a stunning beach, the restaurants, shops, cafés and pretty squares of the old town. The nearby marina offers its own dining venues and nightlife, while the mountainous gateway to the Andalusian hinterland lies only a few kilometres inland.
For those who love the Andalusian way of life, being close to all conveniences and having the beach right on their doorstep, beachside Estepona is a very attractive option indeed, as you can see by our selection of properties in the area.
