12 years ago, we had an inkling of an idea. We took a huge gamble and sold up in England and travelled to the sunniest spot we could find on mainland Europe - the Costa del Sol. We saw over 60 houses before we found our 'Villa Tranquilla'
Spent 8 months renovating, converting and kitting it out to provide 4 gorgeous, unique apartments. We live permanently in one (the largest naturally) and the 3 others are for clients looking for somewhere a little different - special to stay when visiting this lovely part of Spain. Our places may be a shade more costly than one of those endless condos in huge developments with (sometimes) screaming kids, but we think you will appreciate the difference. We provide a free concierge service as well as free parking; free internet; free use of our 450 - film dvd/vhs library; large lawned garden; a pool (only used by the 3 apts) that can be HEATED from Oct - April (currently @ 65e / apt / week which is optional).
Due to our hard work, we are one of the top-rated Estepona sites on a well-known holiday review site.
We are an easy walk (less than 15 mins) to 3 restaurants; a 5* hotel; a supermarket and the beach.
A 6 mins drive takes you to the buzzy fishing port and 4 mins more and you are in the beautiful, colourful, 500 year old town.
Like exploring? One reason we chose Estepona, besides it being very untouristy (a made-up word but you get the idea) is that it is a great pivotal location for those wishing to visit SEVILLE; GRANADA; RONDA; CADIZ; GIBRALTAR; CORDOBA; MALAGA; MARBELLA and even TARIFA in MOROCCO (take the ferry from Algeciras).
O.K. Told you everything except about the apartment.
This is the 'POOL' apartment. The main room comprises a living area with newly acquired 'L' shaped leather sofa (getting around to photographing it soon!), dining area with table & 4 chairs and a fully equipped kitchen including a 4-ring gas top and dishwasher. (There is a communal washing machine in the garage).
From the living area, there is a large sliding glass door to the covered terrace with a spectacular view over the garden, pool and ocean beyond.
The very large bedroom has a king-size bed that can be divided; writing desk; dressing table; 2 large double wardrobes (yes even big enough to fit all of madam's handbags & shoes); space for a fold-away bed if there are 3 of you (extra cost please enquire); sea view and door to shower room.
This comprises a screened shower; WC; bidet & basin.
We hope we have at least tempted you to enquire about availability. Please let us know if you have any questions and we will answer quickly & honestly. (We live here after all and don't want clients saying we lied about something !!!)
Hope to hear from you real soon.
