Estepona is often called the Pearl of the Costa del Sol.
Although there are many beautiful towns and villages situated on the Costa del Sol, Estepona would certainly win the prize for 'the real Spain' and 'the most attractive town'.
Estepona is a lively yet peaceful Spanish seaside town, close enough to all the 'hussle and bussle' on the rest of the Costa del Sol. Thanks to Estepona´s central location, other places like Marbella, Tarifa and Seville and even Africa can easily be reached. People generally rate Estepona as the most relaxed and most charming holiday destination on the Costa del Sol. It is therefore no surprise that the people who have discovered Estepona over the last few years, feel very comfortable and in many cases decided to buy a (second) home here.

Most of her buildings date back to last century and the town is a maze of white-washed, narrow streets, shaded squares and pretty patios with many nice restaurants and terraces to enjoy.
Down at the harbour, totally rebuilt in 1977, fish is auctioned daily on the quayside. There are also a variety of sport amenities in Estepona port along with dolphin spotting trips, sailing and fishing excursions. Estepona port is lively with many nice restaurants and bars.
The Estepona coastline, shallow and sandy, extends over more than 21 km. The Rada Beach, located in front of town, has all services: restaurants, beach bars, showers, lifeguards, etc. ,
The Cristo Beach forms a charming cove, and is ideal for any time of the year,being quite sheltered with shallow waters and great beach bars to enjoy lunch or a drink on the sandy beaches; the 'European Caribbean'!
Car Hire and transport: Renting a car in Spain is not expensive and will give you that extra bit of freedom to move around and get the best out of the surrounding area. Even though you can do without a car, it is recommended to rent one. Contact the owner for the best car rental site in Spain, with the cheapest rates available. After many years of experience also with friends and family definitely the best rates, for mostly new cars and great service. Never been let down once. For people that don´t want to drive, there is a bus stop just minutes away (to Puerto Banus, Marbella Estepona town and port etc.).
Also, everything is within walking distance (beach, supermarket, boulevard, old town and port). Local taxis are not expensive and available via security. In the apartment you find a list with all the important telephone numbers (taxi, hospital (only 5 minutes away), emergency, recommended restaurants, etc).

Phase 4 was built in 2007 and offers a high standard of construction utilizing the most up to date building materials and techniques.
