Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Duquesa
2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4
This is a super apartment in a lovely complex on the beach with a pool and lovely mature gardens with palms, banana trees, and a wonderful selection of flowers tended for by a permanent gardener. There is no need to hire an expensive car because the apartment is 5-10 minutes flat walk from the coach stop from Malaga and Gibraltar, and is very close walking to all shops, restaurants and supermarkets. It is located right on the beach, and 10 to 15 mins walk along the seafront promenade from the marina at Puerto de la Duquesa in Sabanillas, a delightful seaside town very close to all the main golf courses. Sabanillas is the Costa del Sol's best-kept secret, located within easy reach of the airports of Malaga (50min) or Gibraltar (20min).
The apartment is on the fourth floor with lovely views and has lift access. The 2 bedrooms are a good size and have large built in wardrobes. The first bedroom has a double bed, the second two single beds. Both bedrooms have small balconies.
The complex, golf courses and attractions close by: The apartment is on the edge of Sabanillas town - it is a 20 second walk to the nearest small supermarket and nearest bars and restaurants. A 10min walk takes you to the nearest large supermarket and the delightful palm tree decorated centre of Sabanillas. The whole apartment complex has been built to closely resemble the old fashioned traditional Spanish Andalusian style, with pretty iron balcony railings and terracotta roofs, so there is plenty of character. There are no loud discos/clubs to keep you awake all night! You can find these just 10 minutes drive away at Estepona port, or at Puerto de la Duquesa 15 mins walk away. Sabanillas is a lower-key yet vibrant and colourful seaside resort, attracting many Spanish tourists as well as other nationalities, and there are no high-rise hotels or developments here at all. We enjoy 320 days of sunshine per year.
Attractions in the surrounding area: An approx 15 min walk along the beach promenade from the apartment (or a 3 min drive) is the beautiful and famous port and golf centre of Puerto de la Duquesa with yachts and boats of all sizes berthed in the marina, here you can relax by the port in one of the many bars or restaurants (there is also a good night-life here in the summer) and while away the hours or a short walk along the beach is the old Castillo of Duquesa and the beautiful village with its white Spanish houses, here you will find some of the most magnificent fish restaurants in Southern Spain. Sabanillas and the marina at Puerto de la Duquesa are flanked with fine sands and clean and crystalline water beaches which have been awarded with the European Blue flag status. You can drive to Ronda along the 'Ruta de la Toro' route of the bulls to where bullfighting originated. Visit the white villages in the mountains and look to the sky to see eagles and Griffen Vultures soaring above.
Other attractions:: Selwo Safari is nearby and of course no trip is complete without visiting Gibraltar and the top of the Rock to see the Monkeys and the Tunnels or just taking in Main Street and the duty free shopping. Visit nearby Puerto Banus (20 minute drive) for the exclusive shops and maybe you will rub shoulders with the stars. A relaxing atmosphere is teamed with an array of first-class facilities which makes Sabanillas a very desirable location for your relaxing beach/golfing holiday.
