Bel Air is situated between Marbella and Estepona. There are many excellent restaurants nearby. Also, the famous port, Puerto Banus, full of luxury yachts and designer shops, is only fifteen minutes away. The house is also within easy reach of several golf courses. From the house, you can also visit Gibraltar (one hour away), Ronda (1 hour away), Seville, Cordoba or Granada (approx 2-3 hours away). At Granada you have the choice of visiting the Alhambra or even going skiing on the Sierra Nevada. You can also catch the ferry and visit Morocco. If you want to organise any trip to any of these places from a travel agent, you can ask for the coach to pick you up from the bus stop at the entrance to Bel Air, and return you there at the end of the day. If you just want to stay in Estepona, you will have a lovely time. ESTEPONA, near the Sierra Bermeja mountains on the Costa del Sol, is a great place for a family holiday. With an average of 325 days of sunshine a year, good weather is virtually guaranteed, and the resort is a little quieter than some other resort towns in Malaga such as Marbella. In spite of heavy tourist development in terms of resorts and hotels, the town has retained some more traditionally Spanish areas and has many excellent tapas restaurants. There are a lot of things to do in Estepona. First there are the beaches, including two Blue Flag beaches. There's the small cove of Playa Del Cristo to the West of the town, and the long sandy La Rada Beach to the East of Estepona marina. In addition to sunbathing, however, Estepona provides opportunities for golf, with at least five golf courses in the local area (most obviously Estepona Golf). You can also take the family on day trips to attractions such as Selwo Safari Park, with over 2,000 animals who live in semi-wild conditions. Keen shoppers will love the El Corte Inglés department store at Puerto Banús, 30 minutes drive away from Estepona Port with a large number of designer outlets, including Armani and Versace. There is certainly something for every taste in the area, and there is much more to the Costa del Sol than just lazing in the sun.
