Estepona has always been a charming traditional Spanish town and one of the best locations to buy a home on the Costa del Sol. The town, often less well known than neighbouring Marbella, has as much to offer in terms of beauty and facilities, and recent regeneration projects have enhanced the great lifestyle that exists here.
Of all the places to settle on the Costa del Sol, why do many people continue to choose Marbella as their home of choice?
Among those who live and visit here regularly, the area on the east side of Marbella is known for having the best beaches not just in greater Marbella, but pretty much the entire Costa del Sol. It’s also a region known for its space, mountain and sea views, excellent amenities and attractive residential areas.
As we write, it’s still winter, with spring seemingly around the corner since the temperatures are mild, the skies mostly blue and the countryside green and devoid of the barren look found in much of Northern Europe at this time of year. There is already much floral beauty to admire and the gardens – both public and private or indeed communal as part of an urbanisation – look in good condition, but this is a time of year when people start planning their homes’ green areas so they’re in time for the beginning of the new planting season in late February, early March.
El Madroñal is one of the most exclusive and secure residential communities in Marbella. Located in the foothills of the surrounding mountain range and positioned 400 metres above sea level, the panoramic views from here are simply sensational. In addition to this, El Madroñal is the perfect setting for those buyers seeking privacy and an abundance of natural beauty.
Founded in the early sixties, the Hotel Los Monteros ranks alongside the Marbella Club Hotel, the Puente Romano and also the Hotel Don Pepe as the very reference of five-star luxury in Marbella and far beyond. More than that, it is one of the luxury icons of this glamorous seaside resort town, which has drawn so many to its shores in search of the ultimate lifestyle Europe has to offer.
