Make a holiday villa in Estepona your home away from home

At one of the Costa del Sol’s most desirable locations, Estepona holiday villas offer peace and luxury; complemented by a fabulous choice of things to do for visitors both young and old. Accommodation here is modern and laid out especially for families, with special attention paid to facilities and ease of use. Apartments in Estepona are furnished with necessary domestic comforts like air-con, dishwashers and satellite TV, and are further enhanced by manicured gardens and private pools. Holidaying at a villa in Estepona heralds stunning beaches, exciting attractions and a plethora of activities to discover close by.  

Things to do

-Beaches: Contributing to Estepona’s fine reputation are the resort’s beaches, two of which have earned Blue Flag awards. El Cristo is tremendous, and couldn’t be better suited to families thanks to its fine golden sand and shallow waters. Facing westwards, this half-crescent bay is unusually sheltered, making the water safe for swimming, paddling and snorkelling. For a bit more bustle, La Rada is a beach fringed by a plethora of restaurants and shops, with activities available for all manner of tourists.

-Watersports: With a world-class marina and superb facilities lining the main beaches, Estepona provides a great choice of water-based fun and adventure. Travellers can charter a sailboat with a skipper for the afternoon, or hire kayaks, dinghies and other vessels. Water-skiing and fishing experiences are also available, and there’s a scuba centre in Estepona with fully qualified instructors, offering dives to reefs, underwater caves and wrecks.  

-Golf: The Costa del Sol is almost synonymous with world-class golf, and Estepona has no lack of excellent courses close by. Valderrama is one of the country’s most recognisable names, and has hosted plenty of high-profile tournaments down the years. A little further away is Rio Real, which, as the name suggests, is next to the Real River and commands lovely views of the river and coast. Closest is Estepona’s own course; a little less prestigious, but a fun challenge nonetheless due to its bumpy topography.

-Heritage: While Estepona’s modern tourism infrastructure is second to none, the resort also contains a preserved Old Town that is classically Andalucian. The old quarter begins at the waterfront and boasts narrow cobble-stoned streets and whitewashed houses. Much of the architecture here is Baroque, best represented by the Nuestra Senora de los Remedios church from the 18th century. At the Municipal Museum, meanwhile, guests can discover everything there is to know about the town’s natural and social history, with remnants dating to Phoenician times.  

-Cuisine: On the Andalucian coast a perennial favourite is pescaito frito; deep-fried whitebait served with aioli or lemon. Fish and seafood dominate the menus here and are highly recommended for their freshness. Other local dishes include octopus salad and roasted sardines. The Spanish hallmark, gazpacho, comes from Andalucia, and the local variation involves bread, mayonnaise and potatoes.  

Weather in Estepona

The climate in this part of Andalucia is subtropical, with a summer that spans at least five months of the year. Visitors arriving at an Estepona holiday rental in July and August will enjoy the hottest conditions, when temperatures exceed 30?C consistently during the daytime. Estepona’s unique situation on the coast, yet shielded by mountains, grants it an interesting microclimate, with more days of sunshine each year than neighbouring resorts. Winters are almost never cold here, with highs of 17?C on a normal day in January.

Travel to Estepona

The largest airport in the region is Malaga (AGP), which is around 50 minutes east of Estepona by road. As one of Spain’s largest and busiest airports there are many routes to this destination from the UK, the majority of which are with budget carriers. Hugging the coastline, the E-15 runs parallel to the A-7 Autopista, directly from the airport through Estepona. It’s also possible to reach Estepona by bus from the airport via the private company, Portillo. Another way to get to Estepona apartments from the UK would be to fly to Gibraltar (GIB), also around 50 minutes from the town but served by fewer flights.

Beautifully laid out and a joy to use. Lovely temperature too. The apartment was very spacious and very tastefully furnished to a high standard. It has all the mod cons you need including Sky TV and wifi. The bedrooms are lovely and having two bathrooms made life very relaxed with two teenagers. The kitchen is well equipped and meant cooking was very easy. Having Aldi just a 10 minute walk away made such a difference. The underground parking works really well. It is lovely to go out and not need to cool the car down before you start. The beach is only a 10 minute stroll away down a lovely walkway and is a super spot to watch the sunset. Recommend a drink at the beach bar although a bit pricey the setting is worth it. There are also plenty of local shops over on the Strip and there is a footbridge by Aldi so that you can cross the A7 to get to them . The A7 also means it is very easy to get to places. We went to Puerto Banus, Marbella, Benahavis, Estepona, Gibraltar and Fuengerola. Lovely places to visit and so easy to access. The Hacienda complex is so well maintained and the pools absolutely delightful. Thanks for a wonderful stay we couldn't have asked for anything else. :)

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The outdoor seating area is also great and we had family over several nights to have bbqs and play cards. I have been going to El Paraiso for 30 years and it is the best villa I have stayed in there. Fully recommended!
