Location

Estepona, Andalucía, Spain

LOCATION

We are only 60 minutes from Malaga Airport and 30 minutes from Gibraltar airport. Marbella and Puerto Banus are only 30 minutes by car

Very close to 2 golf courses, the 5* Finca Cortesin Hotel & Golf Resort, one of the best courses in Europe and home of the Volvo masters. The Estepona Golf Club, is within walking distance, and has a great bar and a restaurant open for Bfast and lunch (until 6pm).

The nearest beach is 2 miles away as well as 2 large supermarkets (only a 5 minute drive).

Alcazaba Lagoon lies within the bounds of the village of Casares, a “white village”, known for the beauty of its cliffs and wildlife, walking routes, and great beaches with the best coves for swimming, fishing and scuba diving.

The Costa del Sol enjoys one of Europe’s particularly special ecosystems. Not only does it have an exceptional number of sunny days, it is also protected from the winter winds by a chain of mountains, and has a milder climate in the summer.

ESTEPONA:
Estepona a midsized town, once a quiet fishing town, it is a little smaller than the busy Marbella and very family friendly. It has a beautifully kept old historical part, with cobbled streets and a typical Andalucian feel. The town centre is pedestrian and the streets are beautifully decorated with lovely potted geraniums. It has an Orchidarium and botanical garden, the largest in Europe. Also it is famous for its street murals and there is a very interesting walking tour to see over 30 of them. There are many quaint shops, restaurants, cafes, bakeries and tapas bars. At night it is lovely to go out and dine here and enjoy the atmosphere. 
On Wednesday they have a large outdoor market, with ceramics, clothes and fresh fruit and vegetables. The port has a Sunday Market and many restaurants. There are 2 ports nearby, Estepona Port and also Duquesa Port, with plenty of nightlife and restaurants. 
Another recommendation is to drive or cycle up to Sierra Bermeja mountain and its national park, over 1500 meters above sea level from here you can enjoy stunning views and nature. From here you can also visit the local white villages of Gaucin, Casares, Jubrique and Genaguacil “the village of the artists”. 
Also we have our own Safari park Selwo, which is 10 minutes by car, and many different beaches and resorts. Estepona also has outdoor karting for the kids. In Algeciras there is a great Aquapark which is only 30 minutes away.

I am Tania, and I live and work in Estepona,on the Western Costa del Sol. I am half Dutch, quarter British and quarter Italian but have lived here almost my whole life so I feel more Spanish than anything else. I studied Hotel Management, and since 2016 own a boutique management and rental company called Bright Property Management and Alcazaba Lagoon Rentals. I love my work, and started helping with my family & friend's properties rentals. I now have a small team, my sister Marcella to help with check-ins and Debbie who takes care of admin, as well as some lovely cleaning ladies Juani & Aroa. I have traveled a lot and know how important it is to arrive, and everything is taken care off. We hope to make your stay as lovely as possible. I am around if you need me. You will probably find me around Estepona, a very special sea side town, with lots of great restaurants and an amazing beach promenade that goes on for miles, or at Alcazaba Lagoon, such a beautiful place. Surrounded by nature and with a Lagoon that is unique in all of Europe, these ultra modern apartments are exquisitely decorated and have all the amenities you need for a relaxing break. :-)
