Estepona for Expats

esteponaEstepona is a great place to live, work and rent long term for foreigners, with a pretty town centre, port and long seaside promenade with fantastic wide sandy beaches. Popular for those people working in Gibraltar, or using the airport regularly, but still wanting a friendly Spanish town, there has been a lot of investment in the town lately to make it pretty and a pleasant place to live, such as colourful flower pots scattered throughout the old town.

There’s a great mix of nationalities, with a third of the residents being foreign, the other two thirds Spanish. Aware of the importance of the expatriate residents, an expat association (AREME) has just been launched to give a voice to all the foreign residents. It has support from the Junta de Andalucia and has already made an impact to restart local bus services. The committee will meet every three months and there will be bi-monthly forums to address critical matters. To take part, pick up a form at the tourist office in Estepona Port.

We have lots of great properties in Estepona for long term rental, such as this four bedroom villa or this three bedroom apartment in Estepona. Feel free to contact us with your requirements, budget and preferred area and we will let you know the selection available
