The Location

There is an extraordinary calm and tranquillity provided by the amazing view of the sea from everywhere on the Complex…. The pool…. The garden… the beach access gate…. A strip of grass …. A beautiful sandy beach …. And then an expanse of sea to the horizon – embellished by the mountains of Africa and the Rock of Gibraltar on a clear day!

There is something fabulously calming and peaceful to be able to absorb the sounds, sights and smells of the sea, 24 x 7.  There is nothing to interrupt your view to the beach and sea from your apartment. 

Situated paces from the sea, within the region of Andalusia, and within the town boundaries of Estepona, we are an 8 minutes’ drive along the coast, to the west to the beautiful Estepona Centre and Port and to the east, only 8 minutes to the iconic Puerto Banus, and Marbella a few minutes beyond, with countless restaurants, chiringhitos, outings, activities and golf courses all around.

Outside of peak times, most, of the local restaurants and amenities are open most of the time and the chances of you ever experiencing a traffic jam are very slim. You can travel from Malaga to the Apartments and barely see even a Traffic Light! Summer can be too hot to do some things, but the Costa Del Sol is very much an all year-round location and especially with our heated swimming pool it always feels like holiday time!

Please ask for details if you would like to make it an active holiday.  We have a visiting personal trainer, nearby tennis and padel clubs, amazing golf courses, equestrian centres and horse riding schools, yoga and pilates classes and many other activities.

To celebrate the new PASEO, we have now also bought 25 bikes of different sizes, so you can fully enjoy the incredible ride along the Paseo where you hug the shoreline for mile after mile….

The remarkable coastline promenade initiative in Andaluscia is set to connect the entire coast line. Quite an amazing endeavour and something that is only possible in Spain because they have never allowed anyone to own the first c 10 metres of coast line – certainly not possible in other countries.  So, now you can access our new Paseo, only a few feet away through our beach access and you will be able to walk or run, or cycle all the way to Estepona (12 km) or stop off along the way at any of the wonderful beach bars along the way.

Along the route to Estepona are some fantastic places to stop for a drink or a bite to eat.

Having a Beach Bar on the doorstep can be good when you are in the mood, but when you want to “chill” and sunbathe, having often incongruous music can be upsetting.   We have the best of all worlds. Only a 10-15 minute walk along the beach West is Tikitano and a little further on you will find Lido Beach Restaurant at Las Dunas Hotel or another 10 minutes to Sonora (great ambiance). This means that you get the opportunity to build up an appetite on the way and walk off the food on the way back.  If the Sangria was too tempting, we are very well served by very friendly local cab drivers.

We are 8 minutes awayfrom the shopping and nightlife of Puerto Banus, 10 minutes from Marbella Centro and about 8 minutes from Estepona – which is becoming known as “the Garden of Spain” and has been dramatically upgraded in recent times. About 5 minutes from the newly re-modelled San Pedro. 10 minutes to Benahavis – a quaint Spanish mountain village – and a plethora of Spanish Cookery schools – with superb restaurants; and 5 minutes from Selwo Adventure Park and 15 minutes from Casares and the amazing restaurants on the way… 40 minutes from Gibraltar and the caves, the monkeys and the tunnels…. less than an hour from incredible Ronda … there are loads of great walks nearby (in addition to the wonderful beach) and we are in the midst of many of the best Golf Courses in Europe. The list is endless.

The nearest “village” is Cancelada. Still very Spanish but very sensitive to the tourist market.  We are about 300 Metres distance from the main road, which is what protects us from any noise from the road whilst being close enough to access the local areas on foot. From there, it is another c 900 metres to a brand new Lidl, Mercadona as well as several excellent restaurants of every cuisine. So, walking to the Supermarket is not a problem, but you would probably want to take a taxi back if you were carrying plenty of shopping. Taxis wait there. These are less than 3 minutes by car and we have an extra few minutes increases your supermarket choices to include Carrefour, Aldi and even at Puerto Banus the fabulous Hypercor at El Corte Ingles.

And, by way of an extra incentive to exercise when you are in Spain, we have 4 amazing (really amazing) new restaurants 3 within about 500 metres of us and one a little further (although I’m pleased to report that they each have great car parks which we have thoroughly tested!!!). FONS, CATS Kitchen; OWL Organic and WILD Restaurant … and a couple of others that we did not got to yet – but research will continue!

On our doorstep at Heaven Beach, you now have access to a fabulous Water Sports Centre, offering Jet skis, Pedelos, Paddleboard, Bananas and much more. They have kindly offered our guests a discount of 20%. You can also learn Kite Surfing (feeling brave?) or in Estepona or Marbella, you can go on a Segway (past fabulous villas such as Christiano Ronaldo’s), horse-riding or drive a buggy in the hills  … see the amazing boats in the Port and on one to see the Dolphins… and look at the incredible shops (window shopping only of course!!). and still the list goes on.

Guests are often keen to ensure that it is a quiet and peaceful location. As you probably know, the main A7 coastal road can be very noisy if you are too close to it. We are very lucky that we are about 500 metres from the road and so we cannot hear it at all, especially with the sea so close! But, that does of course mean that with most of the restaurants being along the road (apart from Heaven and the other beach ones), you start off with a c 400 metre walk. But don’t worry, if you do not have a car, or would prefer not to drive, Jose and his other local taxi driver family and friends will be happy to take you and or bring you back in whatever state you are – he is very kind and very discreet!

We are very close to the beautiful village of Cancelada which is just the other side of the road and you can walk under the road….. the other side of the road is a restaurant called El Caseria which is very Spanish, serving Tapas. A very short distance from that is a new restaurant in the Garden Centre, called Restaurante Elinvernadero, which we have not yet been to (spoilt for choice) but is apparently wonderful, as it is set inside the Garden Centre and is very elaborate and tropical in feel. The Garden Centre itself is worth a visit.  There is also another fabulous meat restaurant (they also do fish but it is really a meat restaurant) called El Carnicero – open long hours and very popular. There is a very popular Italian Restaurant ITAPU and several other good restaurants including Restaurante El Legado and Bodeguita Santa Maria.  

We have several restaurants that will deliver takeaways – including one of the best Indian’s that you will find anywhere!

The best Gluten free bakery is only 10 minutes away from Heaven.  It is entirely Gluten Free (there are also loads of other great Gluten bakeries too!) is Celicioso. (click on the link) it is AMAZING…..

About 100 yards away from there, is the Organic Café .

Pane & Cioccolato have many gluten free options including their pasta, but it is more than a café.  If you fancy Pizza and Pasta at the iconic Picasso at Puerto Banus we have been really impressed with their Gluten Free Pizzas and Pastas.

You simply MUST try ABA, No 1 in Estepona on Trip Advisor.  The chef Aba used to be Michelin starred at Las Dunas has now opened up a restaurant. 

If you have time and appetite…. Try La Rada and or Taberna Miguel in Estepona or many of the great restaurants in San Pedro and Marbella. 

You cannot go far wrong with the restaurants in Benahavis (where the famous Spanish cookery school is located) and there are some very very special gourmet restaurants on the road to Casares and some fabulous spots in Ronda.

You will certainly not go hungry and you might be very grateful for the Swimming Pool and the Gym to redress the balance every now and then! I am always very happy to expand on restaurant recommendations.
