Estepona is a lovely bubbling authentic Andalusian town at the sea front, with a very chilled atmosphere. The mountain range protecting the back of the city forms a fantastic setting for some stunning country villas that combine country living with the facilities of a town at a 10 minute drive.
The Fincas and country houses we offer around Estepona are located in for example ‘Los Reales’, which is situated right above the town, towards the peak of the Sierra Bermeja. Here you will find villas and houses on extensive plots of land with fabulous views over the city and the Mediterrenean. Another well known area is ‘El Padron’. The plots are smaller here yet it still has a rustic feel to it. A little bit further into the mountains in between Estepona and Marbella we are lucky to sometimes be able to offer some stunning estates.
Estepona is one of our favorite towns on the Costa del Sol. There are lovely squares to enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning with a ‘tostado’ or an ice cream in the afternoon. In the tiny alleys you will find quirky little shops as haberdasheries, tiny sweetshops and mini supermarkets which with their 4 m2 of surface only serve the 2 streets around them. The long stretched beaches, the promenade and the port are just an extra to complete this already funky town.
Facilities & Services in Estepona
Although small, Estepona has everything to offer. There are several primary and secondary schools, state as well as private. Estepona also counts with international schools that follow an international curriculum. With regards to health services you will find many private and state clinics. The nearest hospital is in Marbella.
Estepona has a variety of shops. Next to the quirky tiny shops you will find chains as Mango, or Springfield in the Calle Real, the main shopping street as well as specialized local shops that give just that extra twist.
Wining & Dining in Estepona
In and around Estepona are numerous bars and restaurants. The ones around the Port tend to offer a more international setting. Later in the evening the port is also a favoured spot to go out dancing or to have a few drinks in a pub. The old town offers more typical Spanish restaurants. Fish is always an important dish on the menu. For fish lovers I would like to recommend ‘Los Rosales’ in C/Damas.
What to do in Estepona?
Golf, Beach, sailing, scuba diving, hiking, biking, rock climbing, tennis, football and we can go on. You name it and Estepona offers it. Next to the sports there are several language schools to learn Spanish, art clubs and cultural activities. The tourist office can provide you with all the information.
