A lovely 1st floor apartment overlooking one of 5 swimming pools, it is situated only a 3 minute drive from Puerto de la Duquesa a very pretty marina with many restaurants and bars. Light and airy it leads onto a large furnished terrace with sea views. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view with a glass of local wine!. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 en suite). A spacious living/dinning area and a fully fitted kitchen with a utility room off the kitchen. There is also full reversible air conditioning, patio doors giving onto the terrace from both the living room and master bedroom,it has marble flooring throughout and both bathrooms are tiled with marble too. The apartment is set in mature well maintained gardens. There is 24/7 security as well as a secure parking place in the underground car park. Just minutes from the apartment is La Duquesa Golf Course and of course the bustling Marina. There are many shops nearby in Sabinillas including a very good supermarket ( Super Sol ) which has fresh baked bread. Banks, pharmacies and other amenities are all within a 5 minute drive. Duquesa village is well placed for exploring there are many sandy beaches and rocky coves all along the 150 miles of coastline we are only 25 minutes from Gibraltar from where you can catch a ferry to Morocco. Or just two hours away is the stunning town of Ronda. For those that like skiing we are 2 hours away from the Sierra Nevada mountains, and of course there are many excellent golf courses all along the coast.

lovely spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a short break of 5 days in this lovely apartment. Everything that you would need was catered for here. You do need a car to get about as it is uphill all the way from the port or taxis are cheap enough.

Beautiful apartment in sunny Spain

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay in Spain, the apartment was perfectly situated with a pool view and a shaded terrace perfect for eating outside. We were in the perfect place to explore the coastline which has excellent beaches and the beautiful hills. We would highly recommend Antoine's apartment, it's easy, comfortable and beautifully decorated.

A very well kept property, with a large kitchen and balcony, great for families

  • 4 of 5

We spent 8 nights in the property, and it was fantastic. Easy access to the pool, wonderfully shady balcony to relax on most of the day, large kitchen, so good if you want to cook, all the essentials are there. The owner was very responsive and answered all our questions quickly and in great detail.

We met the housekeeper on check-in and check-out and she was lovely.

A beautiful property in a great location - we'd definitely stay here again!

The port was quite a distance away but there was a place called Kelly's Bar about halfway between which was a lovely place to stop for a meal with my son, very child friendly.

Because of the location it is wise to hire a car if you plan on going anywhere from the apartment.

Thankyou! we had a lovely time at La Duquesa!

Excellent well equipped apartment with pool

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious and was presented spotlessly clean and well equipped. There is secure parking in the basement which is connected to the apartment by stairs and a lift. The terrace is also spacious and overlooks the good sized swimming pool immediately outside. The 30 or so minutes walk from the port provides good uphill exercise. The port can also be accessed by car in about 5 minutes.The security guard's office is immediately outside the apartment at the entrance to the Duquesa Village complex.Highly recommended.

Amazing Apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing. Spacious, very well maintained right at the entrance to Duquesa Village. From the outset, we had very good customer service from the owner of this property and all of our questions were answered well and in a very timely manner. The only downside (and this is a very small downside) is that the walk into Duquesa Marine took about 25 minutes and it would have been very difficult to walk back uphill so you would either have to hire a car or grab a cab to get back. Having said that, the walk into the Marina is a very pleasant one! Once at the Marina, the world really is your oyster with any cuisine that you could possibly want!

Basically an absolutely beautifully well maintained, spacious and light apartment in a lovely part of Spain.

Would definitely recommend!

The Sierra Nevada is within a couple oh hours driving also the village of Ronda is a must see.

Further Details:

The marina at "Puerto La Duquesa" only a 3 mins drive away is excellent for dining with a large choice from tapas to steak, via indian, Chinese and Moroccan.
