Fabulous villa and facilities in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

The villa has spectacular views and a great setting on the edge of a nice urbanization. There were great facilities to make for a comfortable home from home experience - dishwasher, washing machine, and entertainment systems.

The furniture and fittings were tasteful, modern and all worked well such as the air conditioning. The bed in the master bedroom was large and very comfortable.

The outdoor space was large and private - great for sunbathing and eating plus there was plenty of outdoor furniture. It was nice having a stock of basics in the kitchen such as herbs, oils, cling film, and cleaning products etc so you didn't have to start from scratch.

The communal pools and areas were only 5 minutes walk from the villa, very well kept and not at all busy - it was great having a children's and adult pool.

La Duquesa was lovely - enough restaurants and bars, particularly at the Port without being too busy - at least in September. You do really need a car to stay here. We had some great days out - Malaga, Estepona, Ronda and Gibraltar were all worth a visit and took about an hour's drive or less.

The owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with, which all contributed to a very positive first experience of booking on Owner's Direct! I would definitely recommend a stay at this villa and will book it again in the future if we want to stay in this area.

beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is comfortable, spacious accomodation with stunning views, the photos really do not do it justice. The port itself didn't have much in the way to occupy teenagers as they wanted to do watersports but the villa is a perfect base for sightseeing. We had a lovely week.

Great villa!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed every single moment. The villa is well-equipped, comfortable and overall it is very well kept so we felt like home. The terrace is great with stunning mountain and sea views we will never forget. A great choice of music and lots of things that made our stay wonderful! The pools are clean and we enjoyed spending time there. A great value for money! We definitely would like to come back!!!

Great views, great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place, great location, great views. What more can I say? Really enjoyed our stay. Very clean and tidy, very good facilities. Larger space inside villa and outside than photos can show. Lovely outside patios for alfresco dining. Hire a car for best use of the area...not too far from Gibraltar and/or Estepona and Marbella. Definitely book again if we are going to stay in this area on future visits to Spain. Only downside is lack of English TV channels (due to satellite cover in Southern Europe). Is strange that cannot receive BBC channels but can

Sky news and some CBS channels...even S4C! Never mind...didn't go to watch TV. Take some DVD's and maybe PS3 games as there is console there if you need to. Personally, a kindle and a selection of books was best investment for R&R time. All in all, a lovely place to stay.

Location

From the Owner

The property has a great location and is only an hours drive from the main airports. Duquesa is far enough down the coast to still retain the charm of a local marina and yet far enough to avoid the crowds from the major tourist resorts. We are only 40 minutes drive from Gibraltar and the roack airport.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 100 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Manilva at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Bars and restaurants are located at the bottom of the hill a 15 minute walk away. Duquesa is a 35 minute walk or 5-10 minutes by car. There are six supermarkets within a 5 – 10 minute drive. Major banks, post offices, and Pharmacies are located in Sabanillas and Estepona.

Travel:

The nearest airports are situated in Malaga and there are also some flight into Gibralta. Malaga is a 60 minute drive away and Gibralta 30 minutes away.

Distances:

Duquesa harbour 3km 7 minutes by car.

Sabinillas 4km 10 minutes by car.

Estepona 15.1km or 24 minutes by car.

Gibraltar 38km 52 minutes by car.

Malaga airport 94km 1 hour 8 minutes by car.

The nearest supermarket is a five minute drive away.

Further Details:

The Duquesa area hosts a plethora of wonderful, exciting and relaxing actives for the whole family. Everything from golfing to diving. And to take up those lovely evenings, some of the best food and nicest restaurants in Spain. The town of Rhonda made famous by Ernest Hemmingway is pleasant day excursion away from the coast. There are numerous other activities available Scuba diving, fishing and water sports being just three.

Please note that the property does not currently have WiFi access although most of the local bars and restaurants have free access. As of February 2014 the satellite signal for the English TV channels was turned off. We have looked at a number of options from large dishes, IPTV, WiMax, and streaming. At the moment as the band-with to the property is poor we do not believe there is a reliable and cost effective streaming solution but we are constantly reviewing the situation.
