Now living in Dorset with a Farmhouse B&B, 4 self-catering apartments, a small campsite, pet pigs, alpacas, miniature Shetland ponies and loads of other pets to look after it's difficult to get away.

Why Jane Furlong chose Estepona
The apartment in Estepona with fabulous sea views of Gibraltar and Africa on a clear day, is available year round and enjoys a warm climate in the winter months. The area is still very Spanish. Evening walks into the town to dine at the local restaurants are a superb way to experience real Spain. Across the road from the apartment is the Port of Estepona to the left and to the right Playa Cristo a lovely safe cove. The beautiful towns of Ronda, Sevilla & Granada are just a few hours drive away. The Estepona Palace Hotel is just a 10 minute walk from the apartment in the direction of Gibraltar, where there is entertainment during peak season and free WiFi, just buy a drink and take the receipt to get the access code for the WiFi from reception.
What makes this Apartment unique
There is a bus which leaves Malaga Airport at regular intervals which is very economical and there is just one change at Fuengirola or Marbella for the Estepona bus. Car hire is available from many companies but we recommend Poolerentacar, an English company who will collect you from the airport and take you to their office nearby, so no queuing at the airport for a car. My English friends Kay and Clive will meet you at the apartment with keys and information.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Thank you for letting us your apartment. We had a lovely, peaceful week. The view from the balcony was amazing. The apartment was clean and Barry was helpful and easy to deal with. We rented a car and visited Marbella, Malaga, Rhonda and Gibraltar. Most of Estepona was quiet but the old town still had a buzz about it later on in the week when the Christmas lights were turned on.
The apartment was really good value and suited our limited budget. I think you could probably pay more and get something really fancy but that's not we were looking for.
