Property description

Fed up with large, noisy, impersonal condo developments? Don't really need a big villa, but want somewhere special / different? At Villa Tranquilla, we have transformed a huge villa into 4 great apartments. We live in the largest (naturally) with our super-friendly dog Charlie and the 3 others are available for holiday rentals. This unit (Palm Terrace) has 2 bedroom suites; living/dining room; fitted kitchen and 2 decent terraces with gardens surrounding the villa. Gas BBQ; ceiling fans in all rooms as well as aircon/heaters in both bedrooms (extra charge if required). The pool is only used by the 3 holiday apartments and can be heated (Oct - Apr) for an extra charge.
The 2 other apartments are the Pool Apt (spacious 1 bed unit) and the Fountain Apt (2 bed 2 shower with large 'L' shaped terrace looking over the pool.
We are located just a 6 minute drive from Estepona Port, or 10 minutes to the beautiful old town. There is nothing flashy or ostentacious here, unlike some of our more well-known neighbours Puerto Banus, Sotogrande or Marbella. Shops are 'normal' not designer everything and restaurants are very affordable. Most shops are Spanish-owned and cater for the towns inhabitants, not tourists (sorry). If you are seeking a relatively authentic Spanish seaside town to have a wander or relax in, this is it.
If you are the roaming type, then within an hour or so, you can drive to Marbella; Gibraltar; Malaga; Ronda and the Pueblo Blanco (white villages) of Casares; Ojen; Istan and Guadiero.
Another hour (mas o menos) and you'll hit Cadiz; Seville; Jerez; Cordoba; Antequera and of course Granada.
We provide a complimentary concierge service. We can recommend places to eat at; places to visit and ways to get there, book taxi's and restaurant tables etc.
If it sounds a little different to the usual condo, that is because IT IS !!!
Come, stay, enjoy, take home some great memories and then recommend to friends.

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION. The booking Apr 15 - May 2 relates to the 2nd bedroom suite only. The remainder of the apartment is available and provides a large 1 bedroom flat sleeping 2-4 people. Please contact us for prices.***

The location of the villa is in a calm & peaceful development, but the joy is that it is only a short drive from so much. Besides all of the places mentioned above, a must visit is Estepona old town. There are miles of sandy beaches and many chirringuitos dotted along the shore to stop off for a coffee / meal / drink. Easy drive to some nearby white villages such as Casares; Istan; Gaucin as well as famous cities like Seville; Granada; Malaga (it is not just an airport); Cordoba & Ronda. Visit Gibraltar or even Tangiers in Morocco.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We left the U.K. on my 48th birthday looking for a less pressurised, very different life-style. We didn't want the 'typical' Brits holiday resorts like Benidorm; Fuengirola; Marbella plumping instead for a less well-known Spanish seaside town with a fishing port. We absolutely love Estepona, especially the old town which is beautiful to stroll around and comparatively safe. A cup of coffee for just over a euro and you really can't ask for more. Come & stay and we can give you some great tips on where to eat & visit.

Why the Owner Chose Estepona, Málaga, Spain:
Sounds corny, but it ticked all the boxes. We looked at 62 villas before we settled on Villa Tranquilla. Quiet location; sea views; near supermarkets; near civilisation; spacious garden; good pool; decent apartment for us; easy street parking for clients; easy reach of airport(s).
