Estepona Property For Sale
Location and history of Estepona
Estepona is a bustling coastal town between Marbella and Gibraltar, one of few on the Costa del Sol to have kept its traditional Spanish character despite the recent growth in both tourism and the real estate market. All amenities are, of course, extant including restaurants that serve typical Spanish dishes tucked away along cobbled streets, leisure activities, cultural attractions and friendly shops ranging from the sensible to the more unusual.
Its history is unclear before the Moors settled the area, with confusion surrounding the few placenames mentioned in earlier texts which may or may not be the forebears of the town. After the success of Enrique IV of Castile in capturing the town from the Moors, the community built up around the church he instructed to be built on the site of the old Mosque. It has always been of strategic and agricultural importance.
The area boasts many interesting archaeological remains including late Moorish ruins on Castillo del Nicio (accessible by 4x4), the Plaza de la Flores where Roman pottery has been found and the many watchtowers, such as Torre Guadalmansa, that crop up along the coast of southern Spain.
The many beaches in and around Estepona offer an easy way to top up the tan. These include La Rada in the town and El Cristo which inhabits a sheltered cove. For naturists, there is the Costa Nutura purpose-built complex to the east with access to the officially-classified public beach.
Estepona offers the discerning buyer a growing market bolstered by its recent fashionable status and comprehensive amenities. Its Spanish roots and culture ensures that you won't feel you have merely moved to a sunnier version of Britain, and the wealth of property in Estepona and its surrounding countryside means that you are likely to find your dream villa, apartments or perhaps farmhouse in a suitably attractive and comfortable area. As other areas of the Costa del Sol become ever more developed, investment opportunities in this area will become more attractive and resale values should remain healthy.
