If you are looking for luxury houses for sale without the large price tag, you may want to consider Puerto de la Duquesa… often referred to as the ‘new Puerto Banús’.
Located in the coastal town of Manilva between San Luis de Sabinillas and Castillo de la Duquesa, La Duquesa is an extremely popular location within the international community, both for holidays and for those looking for a villa in Spain as a permanent home. It is especially handy as a base for those who work over the frontier in Gibraltar.
A relatively unsung hero compared to Puerto Banús and Sotogrande marina, La Duquesa is one of prettiest marinas in Spain and is one of the best kept secrets on the Coast. The bustling marina has 328 berths for leisure boats and fishing boats and plenty of shops, bars, clubs and restaurants serving all types of cuisine from all over the world.
What to do
As coastal town edged with fine sandy Blue Flag beaches, there are many activities that you can do, including water sports, sailing, fishing, dolphin watching or just soaking up the sunshine. There are a number of golf courses in the area, including the exclusive Duquesa Golf and Country Club.
La Duquesa can be easily accessed for the motorway or more scenic coast road, with a travelling time of just 30 minutes from Gibraltar and around 1 hour to Malaga international airport. A public bus services run regularly connecting La Duquesa with Sotogrande to the west, and Estepona, San Pedro de Alcantara and Marbella heading east.
