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
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 'FOUNTAIN' apartment. The main room comprises a living area with 2 x 2 seater sofas, 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 sliding glass door to the large 'L' shaped terrace with a spectacular view over the garden, pool and ocean beyond.
The main bedroom has a king-size bed that can be divided; dressing table; 2 large double wardrobes (yes even big enough to fit all of madam's handbags & shoes); large sliding window to west and door to shower room.
This comprises a screened shower; WC; bidet & basin.
The 2nd bedroom is smaller but still has a double / twin beds; dressing table; double wardrobe and sliding glass door to the terrace.
There is a 2nd shower room just 3 steps across the hall.
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.
(P.S. We have an extremely friendly dog called Charlie. He never bites and we generally give him the run of the place. We have had clients who arrived scared of dogs
and he tamed them to at least like him !!!)
