Estepona

Looking for luxury villas and apartments? You’ll find plenty of stunning luxury real estate in Estepona. Pretty white houses, world class beaches and a sophisticated atmosphere make Estepona the destination for people looking for luxury real estate and enjoy the finer things in life. Estepona is a traditional fishing town turned resort with a distinctly Andalusian look and feel. When you walk towards the sea front with its numerous chiringuitos (beach bars) serving fresh fish and paella, you’ll pass whitewashed buildings festooned with stunning blue and pink flowers. Surrounded by the mountains of the Sierra Bermeja, Estepona has a pleasant micro-climate with around 325 days of sunshine a year. You’ll find the summers hot and dry and the winters temperately mild, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to make the most of the town’s two Blue Flag beaches. The most popular beach is Playa la Rada in the centre of town with its modern promenade fringed with palm trees and exotic cactus along its 2.5 km length. Life is remarkably unchanged, it still revolves around the traditional town square, Plaza de las Flores, where people enjoy whiling away the time socialising on benches or sipping a cold drink in a café.

Community

With a population of around 70,000 you’ll find the town lively, but not overwhelmingly so. This is the place to be if you are seeking a taste of traditional Spain with all of the sunny benefits the region has to offer.

Property

Estepona is part of the ‘golden triangle’ that also includes beautiful Benahavís and glam Marbella. In the pretty old town, you will find small apartments, while the more modern surrounding areas largely consist of newer apartment blocks. Housing extends along the coast with a number of complexes. And if you’re looking to create your own grand design by building the ultimate luxury mansion, plots of land with building permission are also available.

Transport

Coming and going won’t be a problem, Estepona is connected to the surrounding region by the AP-7 toll road or you can take your time and enjoy the coast along the A-7. The airports of Malaga and Gibraltar can be reached in under an hour respectively. If you’re without a car, a frequent service run from a modern bus station on the east side of town will connect you with the main towns and airports.

Shopping

Estepona town is blissfully free of large shopping complexes but you will find a good range of small and medium sized shops in the centre. It’s worth investigating the traditional town market where you can buy fruit and vegetables and on Sunday morning there is the popular Mercadillo del Puerto in the marina, an Aladdin’s cave of gifts, jewellery and crafts.

Health

You’ll already feel better for living in a sunny climate, but it’s worth knowing that Estepona has excellent provision for public health care, with a state-run A&E unit, the ‘Ambulatorio’ in town, and Estepona Hospital opened its doors in early 2021. In addition, and there are also several private clinics and complementary medical services, plus the Costa del Sol Hospital is located just a short drive away in Marbella.

Cost of Living

Rent and house prices are generally higher at the western end of the Costa del Sol, so expect to pay a little more for a meal out or your weekly shop than you would in the larger resorts on the eastern side.
