Lovely place and excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a great holiday in Duquesa. The apartment was very clean, modern and extremely well equipped.

There are five pools to choose from, ideal for entertaining the children.

The harbour is a 25 minute walk away with a variety of cuisines to suite all tastes. Castillo is a small village on the seafront which also hosts some reasonably priced restaurants.

If (like us) you are not hiring a car I would suggest a walk down to the nearest supermarket, stock up and get a taxi back (around 7 Euros) as there are no shops in the immediate area around the complex.

All in all a most enjoyable holiday and we will return in the near future.

The owners Robert and Susan answer all queries quickly and efficiently.

Lovely clean apartment and balcony, plenty of space for us and our 2 teenage boys

  • 4 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay at Duquesa Village, lovely apartment and pools. A good 20 min walk to the port but then a taxi back was only about 7euros after midnight. The port is lovely with plenty of restaurants and bars. Would return again.

Well equipped spacious appartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this lovely appartment at the end of Feb & start of March. It has all that you want, large lounge dinner, two lovely bedrooms, one on suite the other next to the shower / toilet. A well equipped kitchen and utility room take care of the domestics. You also have full English and Spanish tv & radio along with a DVD player. Parking is in your allocated space under the appartment, with the lift and stares only feet from the front door.

The sun rises over the balcony and streams into the lounge and master bedroom. In the afternoon you get some shade, which in summer would be welcome, even in March I moved into the shade a few times when having a mid morning coffee. If you want more sun it is only a two minute walk to the nearest of the lovely pools.

It is only a few minutes drive to the lovely harbour and miles of beautiful beaches, or walk down and get a taxi back for a few euros.

Even at this time of year most of the numerous bars and restaurants along the sea front were open, with every type of cuisine available. Supermarkets and services, hairdressers, news agent and many other shops are all close by.

The beautiful town of Estopana is only 15 mins drive, with Gibraltar around 40 mins.

Gibraltar is easily visible from the beach as is the North African coast of Morroca, in March we could clearly see its snow capped mountains.

Inland there are numerous beautiful historic hillside villages.

We had a wonderful stay, the whole area has something for everyone.

Fantástico apartamento en zona tranquila

  • 4 of 5

Hemos pasado una semana en este fantástico apartamento con una bonita terraza. El apartamento es perfecto aunque se hecha de menos algo de menaje en la cocina. Por lo demás, es un apartamento espacioso y muy limpio con baños modernos.

La zona está muy bien ya que es tranquila, pero a la vez con la animación perfecta para ir con la familia.

Gracias por unas agradables vacaciones!!

Our Apartment is on the edge of a newly built urban village with gated 24hr security at the top of Jardines de la Duquesa hill, the road goes around the golf course.

Puerto de La Duquesa is situated roughly 25 minutes away from the airport in Gibraltar and just under 1 hour away from Malaga airport. The small town of Estepona is only 10 minutes drive away. You can find everything you need there.

Duquesa village only a 5 minute drive to Duquesa Port, however if you prefer to walk, a 10 minute walk will get you to the nearest shops in 'Monte Duquesa courtyard'. A pleasant area of shops bars and restaurants and great if you have run out of milk!!

Duquesa Port is ten minutes walk further on which is packed with entertainment. Music bars and every nationality of restaurant you could want, and great fish restaurants. The wonderful beach is either side of the port. We usually walk down to the port and get a taxi back which will cost around €7.00. The taxi rank is on the edge of the port.

North is Sabinillas a small Spanish working town with lots of shops, banks and businesses. Along the promenade and beach there are lots of bars and restaurants, a lovely walk in the evening.

The next port South which is a 3 min walk up the promenade is typically Spanish ‘El Catillo’ where you will find ethnic Tapas bars and great Spanish food, very atmospheric.

North up the coast you have Estapona Port, Puerto Banús , Marbella Port, Fuengirolla and many more all the way up to Malaga and beyond all packed with Spanish entertainment and offering a fantastic experience.

Estapona is a busy town with loads of shops, bars & restaurants. The port is a lovely walk with stunning views. The promenade which follows the coast road and lovely beach is a beautiful walk with an abundance of flowers and foliage with lots of little beach bars serving authentic Spanish food or the good old fashioned English burger and chips. We do our shopping there in the huge Carrefour shopping mall - great shop. The old town of Estapona is very pretty with cobbled streets and authentic Spanish shops, bars and restaurants, a must see!!

Marbella is much bigger and very busy, go for the day if you can. We know a great underground car park in the town on Calla Carlos Mackintosh. On exiting you will find yourself on a huge plaza with Salvador Dali sculptures.

1. Down hill takes you to the beach with all the bars and restaurants, there is a fab beach.

2. Up hill through the park area and across the road will take you to the old part of Marbella which is an absolutely wonderful place, like stepping back in time, again loads of places to shop & eat.

Puerto Banús is a very busy port and is very rich. Visit the promenade and sea front and shopping mall, the bars and restaurants are amazing with a wide range of prices. The port is full of million dollar yachts and expensive cars. Great fun to walk along and spot the nicest one.
