The aristocratic Sotogrande is a hushed, private retreat around a modern marina that’s designed for millionaires to sun themselves away from the crowds. Unlike the rowdy hotel complexes of Marbella and Estepona it’s not geared towards holiday golfers, so is a little more civilised.
The town of Estepona is an old fishing port that’s been redeveloped and offers a more year round appeal with good restaurants, bars and shops. Several excellent golf courses can be found in the area and Estepona’s own is very popular.
Fons is Estepona’s finest restaurant offering delicious Mediterranean cuisine. In the summer months their large terrace is a favourite spot for visitors to relax and enjoy their meals in a beautiful setting.
Sur Restaurant in Estepona has a superb reputation for serving top quality meats. The meat is cooked over different types of wood so you can really taste the difference. They also serve up a great choice of tapas and empanadas as well as a wide selection of wines from the New World.
Argentinian restaurant Cancha II is more off the beaten track but worth checking out. It’s in a great location overlooking the polo fields and their food is fantastic, especially the porterhouse steak.
The pristine sandy beach of Aldea Hills is a short walk from our apartments and has a couple of authentic beach restaurants. The beach is backed by a natural park with a number of walking trails. It is only a 5 min drive from the town of San Roque, 10min from Sotogrande and 25min from Gibraltar. Estepona & Sotogrande
