Location location location ..... excellent apartment in a lovely area!

  • 4 of 5

This truly is a lovely apartment, in fact some of the pictures don't really do it justice. We had a great time here and it is a great base for exploring Andalusia which is highly recommended!

The apartment fell 1 star short of full marks because we tend to like a balcony which attracts a little sun at some point in the day but this one didn't, i appreciate for some this might actually be a bonus though! It is plenty big enough with some nice furniture overlooking the pool though. The only other slightly annoying thing was some kind of generator noise heard from the bedrooms, it could be quite annoying late at night... it was not constant but did go on and off periodically - luckily by bed time we were exhausted so it did not spoil our sleep too much.

Great location near the port and beach lovely complex well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time apartment lovely with all the comforts of home. In such a great location near all the restaurants, bars markets that Duquesa has to offer. Golf course within driving distance. Gibraltar about 35 mins away if you want to visit. Also the Roman baths is a different wee experience. The complex is kept very clean and has 24/7 friendly security which is good.

A great location to go to other places near by e.g. Estepona, Marbella, Benvista. Duquesa well worth a visit have been here on many occasions and love it.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Duquesa in this lovely apartment. We returned because our first stay, last year, was great too and we wanted to take our daughter and her partner with us, who hadn't been previously. Everybody is so helpful and friendly and most of the waiters in the local bars in the port remembered us from last year - I'm not sure that was a good or bad thing though! The beach bars and all the restaurants serve local fresh food and it was always beautifully cooked and tasted very fresh. The apartment itself was clean and everything you needed was there, even shampoo, conditioner, washing tablets, sun lotion etc - mind you these were invariably left behind from the previous occupants but very welcome all the same, and we indeed returned the favour and left some of our products behind when we came home. As the apartment is on the ground level it only takes about a minute to get to the pool and, the time of the year we went in May, there was always plenty of sun loungers available. As we had been to the area before this time we spent quite a lot of our time relaxing by the pool reading quite a few of the many books that were also available to the occupants of the complex in the reception area and also on the bookshelf in the apartment, and In fact I left one of mine behind for somebody to read who went in after us.

Again, I cant recommend this place highly enough to anybody that hasn't visited before.

Owner's Response: Mont thanks Barry for your second 5 star review! Most appreciated, as is your return custom :-) Duquesa is a fantastic place to chill or explore Andalusia. Local facilities are excellent and improving and Puerto Banus and Marbella are not far away to the North and Gibraltar and Tariffa not far to the South. So glad you enjoyed everything again. Regards, Steve.

Spent nearly four weeks in the apartment and couldn't ask for more.

  • 5 of 5

Duquesa is a fabulous unspoilt gem on the Costa Del Sol and this apartment is perfect to enjoy all the facilities this quaint port has to offer.

The apartment is very modern,well appointed and very nicely furnished. Being on the ground floor it is very handy for the swimming pool and very convenient to the secure car park.

Location is brilliant being 75 metres to the beach and a very casual 2 minute stroll to the marina with its excellent choice of multi national restaurants and bars.

Highly recommended and definitely will be returning.

Location

From the Owner

Luxury 2 bedroom 2 bathroom frontline beach apartment + secure garaged parking in a fantastic location - great local food/bars, amenities and the whole of Andalusia to explore (Ronda and Tarifa are fantastic). Just over an hour from Malaga by car/ half an hour from Gibraltar. The Port of Duquesa - El Peurto DE La Duquesa - the port of the Duchess, is set between the Spanish town of Sabinillas and the quiet fishing village of El Castillo, all within easy level promenade walking distance. Duquesa and the surrounding area has a variety of local and cosmopolitan bars and restaurants to choose from and everything is on your doorstep in the port, Castillo and Sabillinas. Check out Google Earth satellite view from the map too see how well placed the apartment is. The ground floor location is great for families and the large shaded terrace overlooks the pool without being too close. The pool and the beach offer hours of glorious sunshine, but the terrace is a welcome retreat. The port has regular craft markets and the 'lucky lucky men' (very respectful) sell loads of value goods like designer bags watches and sunglasses - barter though! The port is on three levels (wheelchair accessible) with a host of restaurants and quirky bars. Our favourites bars are the Leisure Lounge, The Bar, Ocean Bar, Bar C, and Kinsales, our favourite restaurant is Sabor Toscana, great Italian food without pizza (Andreas is a brilliant host), but there are many more great ones and no space hear to mention them. Do try Tim's fish n chips at least once, the battered cod or fish gougons and a drink at the leisure lounge is a great way to chill. Duquesa is an expatt and private residential/let/Spanish area with no package holiday accommodation/hotels, its a get away from it all place that still has charm yet can provide all the fun you want and if you hire a car from Bruno's (best car hire) in the port you can sample the many delights of Andalusia, Ronda, Casares Tarifa etc

Superb frontline beach position centrally located between the cosmopolitan Port of Duquesa and the very Spanish fishing village of El Castillo. The level promenade walks and apartment are wheelchair friendly. The Spanish town and promenade of Sabinillas is also a short walk away.

The Marina/Port in Duquesa is a delight to browse, wrap round breakwaters provide great views of the port, sea and mountains.

The area provides fresh local food and the port has an eclectic mix of international cuisine with some superb Italian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Indian and Spanish restaurants (I have tried them all, all good some fantastic). There are plenty of takeaway options in the port and nearby if you want a night in front of the TV.

You needn't venture far, but for a change visit Estepona, fifteen minute drive away and sample great food in the town and an excellent Thai in the Estepona port. There are also great restaurants a short drive into the hills above Duquesa and in nearby Soto Grande. There is even a British run fish 'n chip in Duquesa port (Tims’s) and another fish 'n chip takeaway (with restaurant that does Sunday lunch) and restaurant within 5 minutes (Los Hidalgous, next to the two good supermarkets Eroski and Maxi Dai), all the fish is cooked to order at both establishments, which can mean a short wait, but a swift drink from the bars (use the Leisure Lounge opposite Tim's) will make the short wait a pleasure (you can eat at the Leisure Lounges seating in the fresh air).

There is a small supermarket in the port itself and the gift shop/paper shop in the middle of the port also has basics and bakes fresh bread every day including Sundays (you can wait and have it hot if you want, it will still be warm when you get back to the apartment). There are 3 larger supermarkets within easy reach for larger shopping purchases with wines particularly good value.

Duquesa is a real hidden gem; anyone looking for a relaxing holiday with the sea, yachting, boating, great countryside, golf, good food, polo, walking etc. will be well served. With all this cosmopolitan and Spanish ambience on its doorstep, Duquesa is also within easy access of Puerto Banus, Marbella, Gibraltar, Soto Grande and inland jewels like Casares and Rhonda (must see).

Duquesa and the surrounding area is a fantastic place for a relaxing break with good food, good wine, long happy hours in the bars and plenty of places to visit if you want to venture further afield. Take a trip to Gibraltar to see the monkeys or to Tarifa town and beach for an amazing display of kite and windsurfing and fresh fish.

Duquesa is not the typical Spanish holiday destination, it has an upmarket but laid back cosmopolitan feel and there are no package holiday resorts or tour hotels in the area. Visitors come from Spain and all over europe but English is spoken and understood everywhere in Duquesa, you might have to practice your Spanish in Sabillinas, El Castillo or further afield. I like the area so much I have a family apartment here as well and can thoroughly recommend the area from Jerez and Cadiz to the West and Granada to the East, do visit Ronda, it is a long but great day trip. Also try and get to the Tangana Beach Bar at Valdevaquros Tarifa for a real chill out experience.

I look forward to your booking for a truly great holiday experience.

Steve.

  • You will love Duquesa and the apartment surroundings are superb. You can chill and not move more than 300 meters or you can sample the delights of Andalusia. Duquesa is a compact upmarket cosmopolitan Port, set between two very Spanish towns away from madding crowd - no package holidays or budget hotels in the area.
