This is a beautifully decorated Villa with amazing covered seating areas, garden and fantastic pool area. The bedrooms are all spacious, each with lovely bathrooms. The lounge is large and comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. There is a separate Utility room with a good washing machine and tumble dryer. The only slight negative might be that the televisions in the bedrooms did not work. Also there was a large television in the lounge but with no English programmes. We had actually taken our own Firestick and so plugged it in to use our own Netflix etc account, so luckily this wasn’t a problem for us. I would recommend doing the same. The Villa is in a great location. Only 10 minutes from Estepona and Marbella, so you can get to everything quite quickly. The views from the garden are lovely sea views and you can see Gibraltar and Africa on a clear day too! I would highly recommend this beautiful Villa.

I have stayed in this villa July 2017 and August 2017 Its a good size villa with three bedrooms, large garden area with a large swimming pool. Being slightly up on the mountains its is a bit windy both with easterly and westerly winds. Nice views overlooking the mountains and sea, quiet surroundings. We had our small dog with us and its very dog friendly as the property is completely enclosed by surrounding walls. Gate and small drive to park comfortably. Transport is a must.

We enjoyed our stay in the villa a lot. There was almost everything we needed ( the coffee machine was out of order and there was no blender ). The linen and towels were provided in the sufficient amount for everybody - 8 people. There were enough pots, glasses, plates etc. The view from the terrace is magnificent. The pool man and the gardener coming several times during our stay seemed invisible - gentle and descrete. We are two families with two kids each and this house is perfect for the group of people this size. However, the area around seems only residential and you do need a car to visit a restaurant ( the closest one was closed down ), go shopping or to a nice beach ( the one 500m from the house is good to walk along the shore, not to sunbathe for a few hours - iss narrow and there are no facilties here, no toilet, no bar ). A few kilometers away there are some nice beaches - Manilva, Sabinillas or Estepona). If you plan to travel further, try TARIFA. It is something! All in all, we did enjoy our holidays in the villa.

Travel guide

Villas for rent in Estepona

Estepona is a popular tourist town nestled at the foot of the Costa del Sol’s Sierra Bermeja mountains on Spain’s western coast. As one of the first resorts in the Costa del Sol, it blends modern city living with traditional seaside charm. Discover a stylish marina, flower-adorned old town and quaint shops and bodegas. The cobbled streets are dotted with lively bars and authentic restaurants, and the golden coast is home to many Blue Flag beaches.

Stay in one of our villas in this typical Andalusian town and fall in love with its historic old quarter centring around Plaza de la Flores (or Flower Square). The streets here are blooming with colours and floral scents, making it one of the most picturesque old towns in the Costa del Sol. Take an afternoon stroll along Paseo Marítimo, the bustling palm-lined promenade, or enjoy a traditional Spanish meal at one of the atmospheric waterfront restaurants. The Mediterranean beaches here are perfect for swimming, diving, kite-boarding and sea-kayaking. For a change of scenery, the Sierra Bermeja mountains offer breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape – you may even spot the Rock of Gibraltar on a clear day. For animal lovers, you might get a glimpse of a Barbary ape or two relaxing on the mountainside!

Bordered by the Mediterranean and the mountains, Estepona enjoys a micro-climate, boasting 325 days of sunshine a year where the average daytime temperature often exceeds 30°C. But with a stretch of over 21 km of coastline and over 17 beaches to choose from, there are plenty of places to enjoy a refreshing dip. Estepona is easily accessible with Gibraltar being the closest airport, just 45 minutes away. There are also regular flights from Malaga Airport, approximately an hour away. Booking transfers and car hire services are available from both airports.

  • The summer months of June to September are very hot with daytime temperatures reaching up to 31°C. In winter it rarely falls below 17°C.
  • The average sea temperature in summer is 23°C and 16°C in the winter.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa in Estepona

Estepona is one of the most diverse tourist cities in the Costa del Sol. Situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains, it is the perfect base to explore the surrounding region, with a varied landscape decorated with wild flowers, freshwater streams and rivers. Despite its tourist boom, Estepona is one of the few coastal towns that still retains its authentic pueblo charm. As a working city, there are many facilities, holiday properties, shops and restaurants here, with plenty to see and do. A villa in Estepona gives you easy access to its beautiful beaches, world-class golf courses and whitewashed old town, centering around the flower-adorned square of Plaza de las Flores.

The old town is beautiful any time of day, but take a morning stroll and you’ll have this tranquil place almost all to yourself, as the town just begins to stir. In the afternoon the benches under the orange trees provide the perfect shade, while the fountain in the centre adds to the square's traditional charm. In the evening dine al fresco as the square really starts to come to life. Take a walk along the ruins of the late 15th century San Luis Castle, a stunning reminder of Estepona’s medieval past. The 16th century Clock Tower is said to be one of the oldest ecclesiastical buildings in the Costa del Sol and is the last remaining part of the original parish church of Our Lady of Remedies, destroyed in an earthquake in the mid-18th Century.

Home to over 8000 species of plant and over 1300 orchids, the Botanical Park Orchidarium is one of the Costa del Sol’s biggest and newest attractions. Its modern building is an architectural masterpiece with three glass greenhouse domes. Kids will love the artificial lake outside which puts on a spectacular display every hour. 

Boasting over 20 km of coastline, there are 17 fantastic beaches to choose from. The nearest are the Blue Flag beaches of La Rada and El Cristo. La Rada beach stretches from the marina past Estepona old town, with Paseo Maritimo seafront promenade in the centre. This is the most popular beach with a number of modern facilities and chiringuitos – beach bars that serve delicious paella, fresh fish and other delicacies. Family-friendly El Cristo beach is located 5 minutes west of the marina, just outside the old town. Its sheltered cove enjoys long hours of sunshine, making it the ideal spot for sunbathers. The black volcanic sands of El Padrón is a 12-minute drive from Estepona, surrounded by a landscape of lush vegetation, at the mouth of the Padrón river.
