About Diana Knight
I have always been fascinated by travellers and travel. In 1987 my family and I moved to a Georgian rectory in Malvern, Worcestershire, which my husband and I took great pleasure in restoring, gradually opening up different parts as holiday accommodation for visitors to this beautiful part of the UK. We ran it as a hugely successful holiday business, with two self-catering apartments in the wing, and the converted coach house as a picturesque holiday cottage, together with 4 en-suite bedrooms in the main house for B&B guests, and earning the prestigious 4 red stars award from the AA.
Diana Knight purchased this apartment in 2006
Why Diana Knight chose Estepona West Coast
In 2000 we had the opportunity and funds to venture into the Spanish holiday business, purchasing and upgrading a villa in Fuengirola, which we sold as a successful going concern 4 years later. At this point, we decided to purchase a brand new property in a quality location, with on-site facilities such as pools and tropical gardens, besides being in an ideal location for the discerning holiday maker. So we chose our sea view apartment on Casares del Sol, naming it 'La Palmera' after our first villa. Our first letting was in 2008. We now also own a wonderful villa in the north Costa Blanca, which we have nearly finished extending and upgrading, adding our own pool, garden plants, and terraces, to which we escape as often as commitments allow. We are now retired and reside on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds, and close to Stratford-upon-Avon.
What makes this apartment unique
From 'La Palmera' Apartment one is immediately impressed by the glorious setting, nestling in the protection of the mountains and looking down to the sparkling blue sea. Sitting on the terrace it is a real delight to soak up the majesty and peace of the surroundings. We are so pleased to be able to share this unique experience with others, and so endeavour to offer every home comfort that the discerning holiday maker would expect of a quality holiday property.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The location is in a very quiet area, although a bit away from the beach and restaurants. Hence, I would recommend to have a car during a stay here. It is possible to walk to the beach, but there are better beaches short distances away with car to spend time at. No restaurants or nightlife in walking distance. There is a golf club close by and in the same building there is a fitness center. They have e.g. spinning classes. We used this apartment as a base for several daytrips, e.g. Ronda, Los Pueblos Blancos, Gibraltar, Tarifa, Estepona, Marbella and Puerto Banus. The apartment was clean and welcoming when we arrived, which is always nice. We found everything we needed for a pleasant stay, and it is always good to be at a place with a kitchen where the equipment we need is actually there in order to cook. There were aboslutely no traces of any smoking inside, which was highly appreciated by us. The AC in the apartment is exactly what most Norwegians hope to find in warmer countries, it keeps the apartment cool when you need it to be. The bed in the master bedroom is a bit soft, and the two beds in the other bedroom was just right (for us)! We really enjoyed our ten days and we can absolutely recommend this. Thank you.
