About the property

Apartment in Manilva, Nr. Duquesa, Costa del Sol - Peaceful Location, Large Terrace

Situated on a quiet security-gated, urbanization near to the beautiful seaside fishing village of Puerto de la Duquesa with its many restaurants and bars. There are four swimming pools on site, one of which is a beach pool (see picture) and it is very safe for children. There is underground parking immediately below the apartment. Supermarkets are a short drive away as are ATM's, banks, post office and many shops. The local beaches are fabulous, with golden sand and again very safe for children, they can be reached in 15 minutes by foot. There are also a number of trails that lead into the surrounding countryside. It is an easy drive to Gibraltar, Marbella, Estepona, Ronda and a little further afield you can find Sevilla and Cordoba. There is local Golf in abundance. This apartment is situated on the Costa del Golf with Duquesa Golf just 5 minutes away. Also nearby are the courses of Estapona, Sotogrande, Valdarrama and Alcadaisa Links and many more nearby.

About Bob &Dawn Buckler

Hello and a warm welcome from Bob and Dawn to sunny Spain. We fell in love with the beautiful village of Gaucin during our visit in 2006. The unique and special ambiance of this 'pueblo blanco' is quite special, the evenings are magical as you sit admiring the wonderful sunsets and moon-lit skies from our terraces. The scenery is stunning and views down to the coast are magnificent. We base our successful bird tour company (wingspan bird tours) from our home in Gaucin where we offer day tours to give you a unique opportunity to sample the 'real Spain' and enjoy a wonderful day watching wildlife.

A great rental apartment for a fantastic family holiday

  • 4 of 5

The apartment and complex is quiet, family friendly and close enough to get to the beach easily with a car. The apartment was well equipped and the resort of La Duquesa enabled a good holiday to be had.

Zuvorkommende und freundliche Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung war in einem Top Zustand, sehr hell, groß und mit Klimaanlage ausgestattet.

Es ist alles wie beschrieben.

In der Anlage befinden sich vier Pools, einen davon für Kleinkinder. Kinder dürfen allerdings nur in Begleitung eines Erwachsenen baden.

Der Strand ist ca. 1 km von der Anlage entfernt.

Ich habe den Aufenthalt in dieser Wohnung sehr genossen.
