Among the many excellent residential and leisure areas on the Costa del Sol, Alcaidesa is occasionally overlooked. This is a mistake, for it offers a wonderful, peaceful living environment a little west of Estepona and east of Sotogrande that includes an excellent choice of properties, first-class leisure facilities, a spectacular setting with unbeatable coastal views—and to top it off, great value for money.
The Alcaidesa Links Golf Resort, as it is known officially is dominated by two things: a dreamy seaside links golf course (one of two courses in Alcaidesa), and the magnificent shoreline upon which it stands. The views from here are simply heavenly – perhaps the very best on the whole of the Costa del Sol – as they take in the verdant curve of the coast to the Rock of Gibraltar, which stands like a tall island seemingly in the midst of the sea.
Though on the Mediterranean side, Alcaidesa is also close to where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, so this is an area known for its cooling sea breezes in summer, something which extends the golf season here right into the summer and makes sun tanning by the pool or at the nearby beach all the more pleasant. It’s a world of greens and blues, where sea, sky, fairways and manicured gardens come together in one place.
Look along the shoreline at Alcaidesa and you don’t see the usual collection of apartments, hotels and built up areas, but instead a charming white resort village straddling an expanse of coastal greenery, where sandy coves unknown to many have become the domain of local residents and property owners. For all this, La Alcaidesa is close to the amenities and diversions of Sotogrande, Estepona, Manilva, Duquesa and Gibraltar.
In this western extension of the Costa del Sol you can enjoy peace and privacy, yet also be in Marbella’s Puerto Banús within half an hour or less, surrounded by golf, natural countryside and also close to the country villages of the area.
Gated luxury by the sea
Gated and secure, this is a stylish, tight-knit community made up of both holiday homeowners and permanent residents, many of them expats and people working in Gibraltar, whose international airport is around 20 minutes away. La Vista Beach offers delicious Mediterranean food on its very shores, while La Finca Thai Fusion offers a chic ambience with equally imposing views, and DBlanco is the place to be for socialising, especially in summer.
The properties for sale in Alcaidesa include both apartments and townhouses, all offering attractive styling, spacious, breezy interiors, panoramic terraces and well-kept gardens and pool decks. Moreover, you’ll find that in addition to excellent quality of life this prime residential option also offers attractive properties at very appealing prices – and with a stylish five-star boutique hotel and some quality new developments in the making, this is a good area to consider for investors too.
