Sea and Montain views close to beach and amenities
Why Phil Chester chose Manilva
If you are looking for a property that affords sea and mountain views but also offers homely comforts then look no further than our wonderful apartment in Duquesa, I often drift away while sat on the terrace looking across the sea to Estepona and Marbella but if the mountains and Hills are your preferred option then the Casares Mountains offer you an alternative backdrop.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

Great place to stay
We have stayed at this apartment twice now, lovely spacious apartment with a good size outdoor patio, good base to explore this part of Spain with a car
Beautiful apartment and complex
Just returned from this apartment on La Duquesa Village. Beautiful apartment and a very pretty well maintained complex. Will definitely go back again.
Lovely relaxing stay!
The apartment was true to the listed details regarding layout and facilities and was immaculately clean and well equipped. The kitchen boasted plenty of crockery and cutlery and we were able to dine outside, sitting on the relaxing patio table outside and then relax on the settee too! The apartment provided a good base for our stay, we have in the past been used to staying on the beach front in Duquesa so this was a change for us, however it did force us to go and try a variety of beaches all within a short drive and we enjoyed the change. The pools were clean and tidy and the 'Village' took receipt of a number of new sun loungers whilst we were there, which meant no fighting for a sun bed - Heaven!
We were met in the port by the 'stand in service' manager who was very helpful, this meant that we just had to follow him to the Village - this beats following directions any day!
I would certainly recommend this apartment to my friends and relatives, despite the hillside location (car is essential), the apartment was easily on par with those we have stayed at in Los Granados. The owner was helpful through out and quickly answered any questions that I had prior to the visit.
Un sitio fantástico
La casa está muy bien, grande y con una terraza maravillosa. La piscina muy agradable dentro de un complejo muy cuidado. Es un destino ideal para familias. Muy recomendable
amplio apartamento, cómodo en estupeda urbanización con piscinas
las estancias del apartamento son muy amplias y cómodas, gran terraza, la urbanización muy bonita, con estupendas piscinas.Hay que coger coche para todo, también para compras, cerca no hay ninguna tienda para alimento.Se puede bajar al puerto de la Duquesa y a la playa andando dando un agradable paseo, pero para volver gran subida, posibilidad de coger un taxi (aprox 7 u 8 euros) para subir.En general bonito y muy tranquilo, muy ventilado, bonitas vistas, muy relajante, montaña y mar, bastante cerca del pueblo de Manilva. Temperatura perfecta, no hacía falta poner aire acondicionado.
Cosas que hemos echado en falta: no había canales de TV en español,sólo en Inglés y muy, muy escasos,(informativos).El menaje para cocinar bastante deteriorado sobre todo las sartenes, y no había cacerolas por ejemplo para cocer pasta, no hay Wifi, luz excesivamente tenue en la terraza para cenar por la noche.
The beach and marina are only a short 5 minute drive from the apartment and can be reached on foot, however a car is recommended. Around the Marina and beach there is free parking and sun beds and parasols can be rented for the standard rate. There are also many beach bars dotted along the long stretches of coastline.
