Just a few years ago, Estepona on the Western Costa del Sol, was in a bad way, lots of empty shops, a lack of facilities and opportunities, but thanks to a dynamic mayor, town council and ambitious plans they have improved the town beyond recognition. Small touches such as lining the streets with flowers in coloured pots have made a real difference to the pretty old town and many new facilities have been added to make it a much better place to live. The aim is to make the town the focus for the Western Costa del Sol and there are two exciting projects in the pipeline to make this a reality.
The first is the creation of a “Grand Boulevard” in Estepona which will convert one of the main streets into a hotel, shopping centre and cinema complex, something which is much needed in this area. This is due to be completed in October 2016.
The second is the new botanical garden which is due to have the largest orchid collection in Europe, stunning glass domes and even a 17 meter high waterfall. As well as the botanical gardens there will be new shops and eateries and 150 free car parking spaces with the idea that it will become an urban nature reserve. The project is on track for completion in March, so there’s not long to wait.
If you like the idea of living in Estepona, with its wide sandy beaches, charming old town, large stretches of play areas for the kids, a nearby safari park, great places to eat and drink, all within commuting distance of Gibraltar, then we have a number of great long term rental properties to choose from.
