Shopping, Celebrities, Boats, and Culture: Puerto Banus is the Spanish equivalent to St Tropez in France. Its quays are lined with the most fabulous luxury yachts you can imagine. The rich and famous are always to be found here relaxing amongst the numerous world-class bars and restaurants. Fantastic views can be enjoyed whilst taking a stroll along the impressive breakwater.

Marbella is a most stylish and beautiful town offering a wonderful blend of chic contemporary architecture and historical old buildings. You can relax with a drink or enjoy a superb meal in the famous Orange Square whilst watching the world go by. There are superb shopping areas, a very impressive sea-front promenade, and peaceful parks and avenues to stroll through at your own pace. And don’t miss the amazing marina.

La Canada is a terrific modern shopping mall where you can buy just about anything you need. It is situated on the main highway immediately north of Marbella. Well worth a visit.

Sand, Hills, Food and Wine: Estepona steeped in history and culture the town remains unspoiled and future development is carefully planned to ensure the preservation of the town's identity. The heart of Estepona beats with a timeless rhythm. The heritage of centuries runs through its streets. Its warm and friendly people preserve their traditions with pride.

Benahavis lies about 5 minutes inland from the N340 motorway just north of Hacienda Del Sol. Although you only travel a short distance inland it is a hidden gem of the Costa del Sol. As well as a good number of restaurants there are some small shops and galleries where you can buy original artworks.

Ronda, Seville, Granada: Ronda The beautiful town of Ronda lies 60km up a winding mountain road from Marbella in the mountain range known as the Serranía de Ronda. It stands at an altitude of 739 m and has approximately 35,000 inhabitants. It is one of the most visited towns in Andalucia. Some artifacts found around Ronda date back to prehistoric times (as far as 28000 BC). Seville is Spain's 4th largest city. There is nowhere else in Spain that complies so closely with the foreigner's perception of stereotypical Spain. For it is here that flamenco, bullfighting and fiesta are a way of life. Granada lies in the foothills of Spain's Sierra Nevada mountains. The city has a population of 240,000 of which 80,000 are students so there is a vibrant atmosphere about the place. Apart from the University there is only one other major employer, the Alhambra Palace, which attracts over two million annual visitors and is key to a thriving tourism industry.

Why Jon & Jules chose Costa del Sol - Malaga

When you experience it yourself....you'll see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jon, I received the refund to my credit card yesterday. Thank you very much!

We loved Costa del Sol and as golfers, we were impressed with the number of golf courses. Our next trip there will definitely be a golfing vacation!

When we do decide to go, we will contact you again.

Many thanks and have a great year!

Fantastic holiday and property. Nice appartment with great access to the pool, clean, tidy and comfortable. Lovely patio area to eat or just relax and watch the sun go down.

Great location for the Puerta Banus andEstepona areas. underground parking keeps the car cool during the day.

Well maintained pool area and lifeguard on hand most of the day. Pool area not too busy so plenty of spare chairs.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Hacienda del Sol for a winter break of six weeks. Jon was relentlessly helpful, both before and after we arrived. He gave us a huge amount of really helpful information in advance and was very responsive when we had a couple of problems - with the heating and the TV. Both times everything was sorted very quickly.

The flat is well laid out and has everything you'd need - even for a longer stay. The setting is pretty with well looked after gardens and a lovely pool. In January and February of course the pool was too cold to use, but it was nice to look out on each day. The underground parking with a lift to the flat is very convenient and the back gate out to Aldi is great to pick up some groceries. We used the padel tennis courts each day for a little exercise and the gym was a good facility to have on hand.

We mostly ate in Estepona (we loved La Escollera at the port with lots of amazing fish on the menu at great prices and lots of Spanish people enjoying the atmosphere), or San Pedro where there are lots of nice restaurants. Across the road from the apartment we went a few times to the Corner Cafe which had a great Menu del Dia for 9 euros and a very helpful owner who translated it each time we went. The paella on a Saturday is very good.

All in all a good base to travel around from - we got the hang of the buses too and did lots of our journeys that way. 1 or 2 euros gets you up and down that part of the coast and the no 79 service is good.

We can highly recommend this apartment - in fact some friends who were staying in Puerto Banus came to visit us there and have since booked with John for the month of March.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting in lovely gardens. A swimming pool a stroll from the patio. What more could you want. Wonderful weather (apart from one day- well it was early February after all).

The apartment is well equipped with all the mod cons, a wifi system that actually does what it should do.

We had wonderful days lazing over lunch and enjoying the Spanish culture of nearby St Pedro, thanks Jon and Jules for all of the tips in your "tour guide" Cant wait for the next time I return.

Owner's Response: Jules and I are delighted to hear that you had a great winter holiday and appreciate you taking the time to say so. One of the big reasons that convinced us that the area around Marbella would be ideal for our holidays was the weather which is wonderful throughout the year. We hope you will return again and again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

These apartments are clearly designed to eliminate all the annoying little inconveniences of so many rental properties in Spain. Reassuring security system to the underground parking directly below the apartment with a lift dedicated to half a dozen apartments. Superbly equipped with every modern convenience including a very effective washer dryer ( We were there mid-winter) and super A/C / heating in all rooms. Beach towels provided, incredibly thoughtful with todays weight restricted flights. Very comfy beds and sofas, excellent terrace overlooking the pool, we sunbathed in January!. Fully equipped kitchen cook anything you want. Sky TV, take your own card if you want your own package. Within walking distance are more restaurants than you can possibly visit in one holiday,of just about every type that there is. From budget to outragously expensive you are spoiled for choice. I have no recomendations, food is too much of a personal thing, but go for the busy places especially if there seem to be a lot of Spanish people in them. The Spanish know how to eat well but expect value for money. If you are a real 'foody' drive up to Benahavis (15 mins away) its a lovely little village full of restaurants. Go to Gibralter less than an hours drive on an excellent road. Go to Seville one of the most beautiful cities in the World. Go to Cordoba and visit the Mezquita, go to Granada and visit the Alhambra. From Granada drive up into the Sierra Nevada mountains and then follow the road down to Nerja through some of the most fantastic gorges ( take a good map for this its a long way to drive in a day and needs some planning but its well worth it, two drivers is best.)Go to Marbella and Puerto Banus and marvel at the ostentation and wealth.Do not ignore the beautiful old centre of Malaga, one of the most laid back cities in Spain. The market is a must and the Picasso Museum right behind the fascinating Cathedral is worth a visit.Dont drive into Malage, get the RENFE train from Fuengarola, it's clean,comfortable, and frequent and takes you right into the old centre without all the hassle of heavy traffic and parking. Of course you'll have to drag yourself away from the comfortable apartment, the attractive pool and the excellent complex facilities to do any of these things,and then of course the beach is just a stroll away!. So in a nutshell, if you want to lie in the sun or visit the riches of Andalucia, a perfect location, also its easy to find from Malaga airport!.

très bon séjour 2010 / very good stay 2010

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est agréable et confortable. De très bonne qualité. Les services sont à dix minutes à pied. La mer est à dix minutes aussi.

Le cadre et magnifique l'accueil très bien.Le descriptif de l'annonce est tout à fait conforme. Il faut y aller pour comprendre qu'il est difficile d'en plus tellement on souhaite pouvoir y revenir sans compter sur l'Andalousie à visiter pas la peine d'aller loin les villages au tour sont beaux et moins cher....merci.

The apartment is nice and comfortable. Very good. Services are at ten-minute walk. The sea is ten minutes too. The setting and wonderful hospitality use.The very descriptive of the ad is entirely consistent. We must go to understand that it is more difficult so we want to return without relying on Andalusia to visit not worth going far round the villages are beautiful and cheaper ..... Thank you.

Fabulous Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing holiday here. Booking was swift and hassle free - transfers to and from the airport were also arranged for me on request which was great and at a good price.

Clean, comfy and well equiped the apartment was the perfect base for a relaxing holiday!

The outdoor pool was fab and catered well for small children as well. The complex was secure and very safe. Puerto Banus is a must visit town - idyllic. Bus stop is very close and a good service for those without a car - a car is certainly not necessary as we explored about 4 or 5 different towns using buses and had no problems.

Very highly recommended indeed!!

From ‘our’ beach the North African coast and Rock of Gibraltar can be seen in the distance and the atmosphere here in the evenings is really quite romantic. Shops, restaurants, beaches, taxis, buses, etc, are all within an easy walk of the Hacienda Del Sol. The delights of Estepona, Gibraltar, Ronda, Marbella, Puerta Banus, Malaga, Seville, Granada, La Canada Shopping Mall and even the Sierra Nevada mountains are all within a delightful day trip by car. Numerous top-quality golf courses can be found within just a few minutes drive from your front door, including the world-famous Valderama. They don't call it the 'Costa Del Golf' for nothing! Equipment can be hired from several outlets if necessary. Whether you are a family with young children, elderly, disabled, young adults looking for fun, or golfing fans, you will find the Hacienda Del Sol just perfect for your needs. If skiing is your ‘bag’, you can reach the 3,600 meter high Sierra Nevadas and Valeta within about 2 hours by car

Other Activities: Scuba Diving on the beach

Golf: There are now more than 60 Costa del Sol Golf Courses stretching from Sotogrande in the west to the lesser known Velez Malaga in the east and they all have one thing in common - the fantastic sunny and dry climate allowing golfers to play all year round. For those who are used to playing golf in the cold and wet of a northern European winter it will be a real luxury to play on a Costa del Sol winter's day. There are Costa del Sol golf courses to suit all levels of players and they are set in some beautiful surroundings, many with views of the sea and mountains.

Ski: The Sierra Nevadas are a dramatic, rugged and extensive mountain range, the highest in Europe after the Alps and the most significant section of the Cordillera Penibética. The protected area encompasses 86,208ha of torrential rivers, sheer-sided gorges, stony scree slopes, glacial lakes between snowy summits and, in the foothills of the Alpujarras, cultivated terraces of almond trees and vegetables.
