Estepona – Live The Dream
Estepona is a great place to be, and it is no wonder that it is growing in popularity as a place to live. It is conveniently located close to Marbella and San Pedro on one side whilst the other end enjoys closer proximity to Gibraltar.
Estepona, along with Marbella and Benahavis, forms one point of the famously beautiful “Golden Triangle.”
With beautiful, long, sandy beaches, the coastal town of Estepona boasts a traditional and authentic old town with cobbled streets, welcoming plazas and celebrated colourful flower displays. No wonder Estepona carries the apt nickname, ” the Garden of the Costa del Sol.”
It provides a scenic setting with friendly neighbours, plenty of community amenities, grocery stores, tapas bars and restaurants, beach clubs and chill-out terraces, a vibrant nightlife, museums, art galleries, fitness centres, water sports, and golf courses. Estepona’s charming Marina hosts a weekly and extremely popular local farmer’s & Artisan’s Market where locals can pick up plants, locally produced fruit and veg, and handmade crafted goods.
In-keeping with the floral theme, it hosts the delightful and architectural design landmark, the Botanical Garden and Orchidarium. For budding gardeners, this remarkable space provides a wealth of information on successful growing. It offers an enchanting place to relax under the innovative glass domes, enjoy coffee with friends and take in the flora and fauna, and magnificent water features. Friendly staff are always on hand to provide growing advice if something catches your eye.
For families considering a move to Estepona, an array of schools offer exceptional learning experiences for children, from local primary and secondary schools providing education through the medium of Spanish, leading to the Spanish Bachillerato. Alternatively, private international schools, teaching a range of subjects in English or bilingual Spanish and English leading to an internationally recognised qualification known as the International Baccalaureate.
Estepona does have it all and provides a wonderful quality of life and investment potential for property buyers with properties ranging in prices to suit most budgets. Expect to pay up to €15,000,0000 for a luxury beachfront villa with 12 bedrooms and fully fitted gym and spa in areas such as the “New Golden Mile” as Estepona is becoming known as more tranquil and picturesque version of neighbouring Marbella where you will now see many celebrities and wealthy buyers settling.
