COME & MEET CHARLIE (Ideal if you are a dog-lover)

In 2001 when we left the UK to find a new life, we arrived in Estepona & started searching for that special place which would eventually become our home & business. We adopted a stray dog which we called Thumper because his tail would beat when we entered a room. After 11 wonderful years, he developed diabetes & went blind. A few months later, our vet said it was time & we said a sad 'goodbye'

We drove home not saying a word. On entering the villa, we both said together "No more dogs"

4 weeks later, I returned from the beautiful old town area and lying against ...Read more

Additional Location Information

AROUND AND ABOUT
We are located in a peaceful quiet location in a road with few passing cars. We have a commanding position at the top of our short road with breath-taking sea views. We are only a short walk from the sea side; 3 restaurants; 2 supermarkets & a 5* hotel. A 6 minutes drive and you are in the Port. A further 5 minutes and you hit the stunning old part of Estepona town, recently the subject of extensive upgrading . Urb(anizacion) Don Pedro is a spread-out development of low-built properties and there is adequate free parking for 3 cars or more just outside the villa. You can easily leave your car here and get a taxi into town if you think you may wish to drink more alcohol than the permitted (one and a half thimbles) amount.

The Port is a colourful interesting place to wander around. It is a working fishing port as well. At night, it is beautifully lit. Great choice of bars & restaurants as well.
The old town has recently had a huge amount spent on it, resurfacing roads and colour-coordinating the flower pots in each road. It really does look very pretty.
Within a 12 minute drive, we have Selwo Safari Park which, if you like wild animals is really worth a visit. Casares is our local white village which is charming and only 15 minutes away. We have 2 very sandy beaches nearby-Playa Cristo & Playa La Rada. Sometimes on a Sunday morning, you can watch Estepona play football in the local stadium. There are 2 markets every week (weather permitting) near the port. Sunday in the Port has a non-food market and Wednesday near the Port has a full market. There is a bull ring here which has bull fights about twice a year. There is sometimes an arts & crafts market on a Sunday and the odd pop concert in the summer. There is also a small museum in the bull ring area with 5 displays (Bull fighting; prehistoric animals; palaeontology; ethnography; image & sound). Free to get in (50 euros to get out) joke!

AND FURTHER AFIELD
Marbella & Puerto Banus are just a hop / skip & a jump away (about 25 mins) and if you haven't been before, you may wish to go to Gibraltar.
If you like, Tangiers in Morocco (on the Dark Continent) is easy to get to by ferry or catamaran. We can organise a private guided tour if that appeals.
The AlHambra at Granada; Cordoba; Malaga; Antequera; Seville; Jerez; Cadiz & spectacular Ronda are all 2 hours or less by car. If you want to get away from the beach for a day or two, any / all are worth visiting.
