We offer apartments, fincas and all types of holiday homes in Spain, so have a quick browse to see what jumps out.
Things to do on the sunshine coast
Self-catering holidays in Spain are the best way to immerse yourself in the nation’s relaxed way of life. In Estepona, spend an afternoon walking the Poetry Route through the town, before retiring to one of the charming squares for refreshment. In the centre of town, visitors will find cultural attractions such as the Plaza del Reloj, located very close to the Paseo Marítimo, where the municipal band meets every summer night to play regional music. If you are in search good food on Spanish villa holidays, the Plaza de las Flores caters for many diners on its terraces, who tuck into traditional cuisine in a picturesque setting. During the warm and sun-filled days, families visit the Playa del Angel Park which benefits from a cooling sea breeze off the Mediterranean and contains a children’s playground.
Visit Spain's beaches from Estepona villas
Undoubtedly, one of the main attractions of villas in Andalusia are their access to the region’s wonderful beaches. From urban stretches of sand to natural coves away from the centre, Estepona has a beach to suit every type of holidaymaker. Here are a few standouts:
- La Rada – Located in the centre of Estepona, La Rada is perhaps the most frequented beach by tourists due to its location and breadth. Its more than 2 km long and offers amenities, beach bars, and calm waters for safe bathing on family holidays.
- Playa del Cristo – This beach is located on the outskirts of the city, and is one of the smallest in the area. Because of its crescent shape, Playa del Cristo is somewhat sheltered from the wind and enjoys the most sun hours of all the beaches of Estepona.
- The Punta de la Plata – Surrounded by vegetation, this beach offers more privacy than those in the town. Pack a picnic at your Spanish villa and eat it on the beach with friends and family while enjoying the tranquil backdrop of the Mediterranean.
Estepona cuisine – self-catering in Spain
Diving into the local cuisine is a key component of any self-catering holiday in Europe, and Spain is no exception. Estepona is well-known for its delicious seafood, particularly sardine skewers which are dashed with olive oil before being grilled over an open fire. Walk into town from apartments, or drive in from Estepona villas further out, and tuck into a cuisine full of flavours and aromas. If you are feeling peckish at lunchtime, traditional Andalusian soups gazpacho and rich ajoblanco are on offer in abundance, and make a nice change from seafood. Of course, all this can be washed down with scrumptious Spanish wine, or a glass of sherry which is produced not far away in Jerez.
