Estepona may have once been known as a quaint seaside town, but it seems that now when people think about the glamourous Marbella area, they think about the Golden Mile but about Estepona´s New Golden Mile too.

For years Estepona has been overlooked in favour of its neighbour, the world renowned playground of the rich and famous Marbella. Now though, Estepona’s star is on the rise with the town firmly establishing itself as a glamourous destination in its own right.

This is mainly thanks to growth of the area around Marbella, with projects such as the New Golden Mile (the road stretching between San Pedro de Alcantara and Estepona), as well as the addition of numerous new luxury properties and communities that has helped Marbella’s fame to spread to the west of the region.

But as well as the increased property availability, this recent influx of buyers has also been helped by the towns recent makeover under the mayordom of José María García Urbano. He has overseen many renovation works and the redecoration of the historic town centre with brightly coloured flowers and large mural paintings on apartment buildings. This, together with the wave of modern, high quality developments, has helped to raise the towns profile – particularly the town centre where properties are selling fast.

Many discerning property hunters are taking advantage of the area’s recent boom to find modern, luxury homes in and around Estepona, as along with the improved look comes a growth in local amenities. Stylish restaurants, boutiques and beach clubs can now be found in the town, as well as a new theatre, hospital and planned downtown shopping area.

Estepona is rapidly is becoming known as a real hotspot around Marbella, and while prices are still on the rise there’s never been a better time to invest. The town still offers huge potential for future growth as continued improvements to the town steadily transform it into one of the most desirable areas on the Costa del Sol.
