Enjoy the freedom and privacy of a villa with exclusive use of a sunny Mediterranean garden.
This traditional Andalusian-style bungalow is situated in a quiet area of one of Estepona's well established and beautifully maintained communities. The perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The beach is only a short 5 minute walk away, so it is easy to just head to the beach first thing in the morning for an invigorating swim before heading off to explore the local area or for a short stroll at sunset. Even during the summer months, the beach is quiet and principally enjoyed by residents of the houses in the vicinity and guests from the Hotel Elba. The centre of Estepona with its bustling port and tranquil beautifully restored old town is 3km away (45 minute walk along the beach).

HIKING: Nearby there are numerous hiking areas and nature reserves. We are fortunate to have known this area for over 20 years and can provide advice on hiking routes or information on the natural history of this wonderful region. The Senda de Malaga is a newly inaugurated series of hiking routes through some amazing scenery. Best areas for hiking include the Sierra Bermeja (Estepona), Sierra Blanca (Marbella and Ojen), Sierra de las Nieves (Ronda, Yunquera and Istan), Serrania de Ronda (near Estepona), Sierra Crestellina (Casares), Los Alcornocales Nature Reserve (Cork Oak Forests near Los Barrios), Mediterranean Steps in Gibraltar with views of both Europe and Africa. Grazalema Nature Reserve for lush vegetation and rocky landscapes. El Torcal near Antequera for limestone rock formations. Best times for enjoying the natural beauty of the mountains around Estepona are the beginning of April to the end of June. However, with over 320 sunny days a year it is possible to go walking throughout the year with the exception of the hotter summer months of July and August.
BIRD WATCHING: The area has many sites of interest for bird watching i.e. Guadalhorce Wetlands near Malaga, Wetlands at La Janda near Tarifa, Gibraltar for migratory birds, Casares for vultures and the Lesser Kestrel, Flamingos at La Fuente de Piedra, Raptors in the Sierras, Bee-eaters, Hoopoos etc etc,
WILDFLOWERS: Which time of year for wild flowers? Botanists will enjoy the many orchid species that flower between February and June, Almond blossom in January, while plants at higher altitudes (Sierra de las Nieves) can be enjoyed during June/July. In our opinion, the most beautiful time of year is between April and June. Botanical gardens are at their best during spring and early summer i.e. La Concepcion near Malaga and in the Alcornocales Natural Park near Los Barrios (highly recommended). Estepona has a small park with botanical information around the lighthouse near the fishing port.

Caves at Gibraltar (take passport and don't forget to visit the famous Barbary Macaques) and in the Serrania de Ronda just behind Estepona. Museums in Ronda and Malaga.
