Property to rent Alcaidesa long lets

Alcaidesa is a town situated in the west of the Costa del Sol region, between Sotogrande and San Roque. The town is most noted for its stunning views of the Mediterranean and clean sweeping shoreline. The resort was started in the early 1990s and has an air of sophistication, yet maintains a somewhat Spanish rustic charm.

Main Tourist Attractions

Golfers will love this area of the Costa del Sol as there are many courses, including the Alcaidesa Links Golf Course. There are also upmarket courses in nearby Sotogrande and San Roque. The stunning beach which is clean and sandy, is perfect for soaking up the sun or partaking in watersports such as sailing, surfing and jet skiing. Nearby Sotogrande has a nature reserve and a whole host of sporting activities such as horse riding, squash and polo. Taking a short trip to Estepona allows visitors to experience the bullring, with its four museums; alternatively you can take in the historical watch towers from the time of the Moors or relax in a serene, green park.

Shopping Opportunities

Due to the fact that Alcaidesa is still in development there are no retail outlets to speak of at the present time. There are plans to build a shopping centre and mall in the near future. Sotogrande has some shopping opportunities including two fairs held every week, which offer a variety of items, including antiques. Alcaidesa is a short distance from the rock of Gibraltar where serious shoppers can spend the day haggling with stall holders in the colourful bazaars. The town of Estepona is about a half hour drive from Alcaidesa and boasts two shopping centres. Here you will find items for purchase including pottery, jewellery, perfume, shoes, clothing and beautiful Spanish souvenirs.

Eating out and Nightlife

The town has one restaurant which caters for those who love Spanish food such as tortilla, paella and Tapas. There are also several international dishes on the menu as Alcaidesa is a popular destination with many tourists. There is a bar located on the beach which serves a selection of local beers and wines as well as some international favourites. More restaurants and bars are situated in Estepona which cater for all palates.

Alcaidesa does not have any discos or nightclubs; Estepona has a small but lively nightclub scene in the marina area of the town. Warm evenings in Alcaidesa are spent wandering the streets and relaxing with a glass of wine and some Tapas.
