 Near La Duquesa Port and La Duquesa Golf and Country Club your apartment is 104sq.m with high quality real marble floors. You have privacy on the furnished terrace (55sq.m) yet you are a few metres from the pool,hot-tubs, steam-room, gym sauna, picnic area, children’s  playground, paddle tennis, mini golf, olive tree lined exotic gardens the onsite bar and popular restaurant and many other facilities including free wi-fi.The kitchen looks onto a typical Andulucian mosaic courtyard with flowers and trees in the centre. The whole resort has been built to a very high standard, lush architecture mingles with tropical gardens and mature trees and reflects some of the many influences of its Andulucian and Moorish history

Exquisite views of mountains,and sea, and near to Marbella Puerto Banus and Gibraltar.There are many golf courses such as Sottogrande, San Roque and Valderamma. Full details of the golf courses 72 in Costa del Sol are available on request.
The apartment is very luxurious and you have your own secure garage beneath the apartment so a car is recommended should you wish to explore this beautiful region sometimes called “the other Costa del Sol”.


However you may choose, as many do, to stay in the private estate or on the terrace which has sun and shade all day. With pools.children’s play area and picnic area in the tropical gardens also giving sun and shade and gym, pool sauna and hot tub are very near your terrace yet do not spoil your privacy .. The pool area has more views of the mountain foothills and as you sunbathe there or on the terrace you may hear the sound of the goats bells.The restaurant and bar are open 10a.m. till midnight and for variety there are so many bars and restaurants in the port and actually on the beach open till around 3 a.m.The apartments are located near to La Duquesa Golf Course Designed by Robert Trent Jones, this 18-hole, 72par course is a must for all serious golfers. The course winds round El Hacho beacon hill with magnificent views over the Mediterranean, Gibralta and to Africa. It has five par 3’s, eight par 4’s, and five par 5’s, with two small man-made lakes. It offers an interesting and varied game due to its long fairways and has two clearly different parts.The first 9 holes are of a certain “English style” with narrow fairways and high greens. Particularly beautiful is the 4th hole for its magnificent views, but it can also easily give you trouble with your score card. The 8th par 3 is only 125m long but has a drop of 30m! The second 9 are easier with wide fairways, although the green will supply additional difficulties.There are approximately 30 golf courses within easy reach by car so it is a golfers paradise

Further details indoors:
This is a luxury apartment 104 meters square 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms with a furnished terrace of 55 sq.m for al fresco dining. It has a well equipped kitchen and is tastefully furnished throughout with expensive furniture. The Private Estate is mainly owner occupied, upmarket and quiet and has everything you could possibly need so a car isnt essential, but advisable.The beach, port and golf are all nearby and the microclimate between the mountains and the beach make it a 12 months a year warm sunny location.The charming port of La Duquesa is a short drive or walk and has a marina with full facilities and water sports, or sit in the bars and restaurants enjoying the sea views and the many ex-pats who will try and persuade you to join them in their permanent, or half the year(English Winter) holiday.. English is spoken by almost all the Northern European permanent residents. Others just spend winter here and save on their fuel bills, and some are here 9 months a year and only rent their apartment in high season.
However if you want to hire a car there are the sophisticated jetsetting coastal towns such as Marbella and Puerta Banus, with their international bars and restaurants and night life. Puerto de la Duquesa is very similar to Puerto Banus in everything but price. Alternatively there is a nearby ferry to Ceuta or Tangiers which could be done in a day-trip, or go further into Morocco and visit Casablanca or Marrakesh.
With a car there are some exquisite villages in the mountains to visit or swim wth dolphins off Gibraltar( a25 minute drive away) For the golfer you are a short walk from La Duquesa Golf and Country Club which also has its own spa, health and beauty treatments. 40 other golf courses are a short drive away.

Further details outdoors:
La Duquesa ‘The Port Of The Duchess’ and La Duquesa Golf and Country Club are both nearby. The resort which is quiet and well equipped has a sauna, fitness room, steam-room, jacuzzi and hot-tub. The gardens are beautiful with mature trees and exotic flowers and has special picnic areas, a childrens playground, paddle tennis and mini-golf. The resort is on a natural hill in the foothills of the Ronda mountains (you can hear the goat-bells) and the views of sea and mountains are spectacular. It is a micro-climate with exceptional records of sunshine 12 months of the year.
Its essence and its distinction is that the area retains a vast amount of untouched natural scenery and authentic local character – while sharing the fantastic climate and all the excellent services and infrastructure of the rest of the Costa del Sol.
Within easy reach of the airports of Malaga (45 minutes) and Gibraltar (25 minutes) Easyjet has cheap flights from Gatwick. to both Malaga and Gibraltar. All the cheap flights fly into Malaga. La Duquesa seems like a thousand miles away from the throng of the holiday resorts and offers an unparalleled quality of life in Southern Spain.
There are many attractions,which include: La Duquesa sports marina, miles of sandy beaches, promenades, bars, restaurants and cafés, numerous Championship 18 hole golf courses, the natural marvels of Andalusia, shopping and bustling nightlife minutes away and so much to enjoy on the tasteful resort with the sea and mountain views.
The picture postcard port La Duquesa offers full marina services for boating enthusiasts as well as a myriad of attractions for those with no aspirations to take to the water. The attractive promenades encircling the port offer a variety of international restaurants, intimate bars and cafés in which to while away the days.
Whether its miles of pristine beaches (many earning the European Blue Flag for cleanliness) or rugged mountains with their wildlife, the La Duquesa area offers every type of terrain. Rising virtually from the beaches, the mountains hide their medieval towns like little jewels of the famed White Villages. Every type of nature recreation is at hand including winter and spring skiing only 2 hours away in Granada..Mountain air and the beautiful spa resort with sunshine 12 months a year make it a perfect and affordable retreat from stress and grey skies an affordable restorative. Costa del Sol is well named the sun coast as it has between 330 to 360 days a year of sunshine

Further details

We are available for very low rate longer winter lets. These are negotiable according to length of stay. Positioned between sea and mountains Duquesa has an unusually pleasant micro-climate. While the rest of Europe battles wind, rain and snow the Costa del Sol enjoys mostly sunny days even in January. In winter it is mild. In fact, the mercury generally remains into the teens and twenties throughout the winter months. Meterological records show that the sun shines on the Costa del Sol for more than 300 days a year. Costa del Sol is not Spanish for “Sun Coast” for no reason.

In winter the region is protected from the biting winds to the north by the towering Sierras and yet it is cooled by sea breezes in the summer, so that the average annual temperature is a little under a very enjoyable 20C Unsurprisingly July and August can be very warm but still temperatures hover around the more bearable 30º C. The apartment has air-con and heating for the occasional cold night.

Conditions

We prefer payment in full with a secure credit/debit card payment, bank transfer or with paypal but this is flexible if you want to pay a deposit then the balance 6 weeks prior to arrival.
Very good rates for a long winter let. From £500 to £750 pcm depending on how long you want to stay.

Reviews

27 May

Exceptional apartment and facilities we could have fitted another branch of the family tree in this very large well equipped apartment. We hired a car as advised and had some memorable day-trips. The onsite restaurant was excellent and I noticed some local Spanish people chose it above the port. We loved the port of course but were always glad to get home. Exceptional value for money. We didnt expect it would be this good.

I advise at least 2 -3 week stay in this large comfortable apartment. Just the fitness suite a few yards away could have kept me enthralled. The resort itself has beautiful views but the area of La Duquesa would take months to explore. I am a historian of sorts. I especially loved the intact Roman baths in Manilva, I think it took 4 minutes in a car to get to. Next time I want to swim with dolphins off Gibraltar. Thanks for a great holiday.
