La Duquesa enjoys an advantageous location to the west of Marbella sometimes called "the Other Costa del Sol". Duquesa Port is a charming picturesque marina, situated between two long blue flag beaches, with a wide range of busy cafes, bars and restaurants. Duquesa Port offers a great location for a family holiday or for residents who want to be near Estepona as well as Gibraltar. Everything you need is on hand including the wonderful facilities of the Duquesa Golf & Country Club in the upper part of the town.
The marina has a good selection of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops whilst nearby the town of Sabinillas has three large supermarkets.
In addition, with San Roque and Sotogrande just a 5 minute drive away, Duquesa is an area to watch. The local golf courses are a massive draw for serious golfers – they include Valderrama, host of the Ryder Cup and World Championship and San Roque, host to the qualifying schools. Sotogrande is also host to the most famous polo ground in Europe.
Duquesa Port is part of the province of Manilva, which gets its name from a small hilltop town of the same name. Just a 2km drive back from the coast this pretty, ancient Roman and a Moorish settlement has retained its Spanish character and has some beautiful historic buildings including the Iglesia de Santa Ana.
Buying a property near a port along the Costa del Sol is often expensive, especially if you compare to Puerto Banus and Cabopino. However, Duquesa Port offers you the opportunity to buy an apartment close to a marina at half the price.Metta estates have 2 bed apartments from just 99,000 Euros. The area is growing in popularity and is a sure investment with such good connections to the airports, and the influx of new golf courses.
