Short housesit in Estepona SPAIN 16-22 Sept –
We need a housesitting couple or single housesitter to care for our pets when we go away for 4 days this September – you can stay for an additional two days before we travel. We have two dogs and 3 cats, though we also feed two out door cats. Our home is a delightful rustic country home standing in its own grounds with uninterrupted views of Estepona, Gibraltar and Morocco. It offers a welcoming en suite room approached by a shallow flight of stairs. The room has twin beds, air conditioning and a small balcony with views across country to the sea.
Set in a beautiful, mature and very secluded garden, the house offers parking, wi-fi downstairs and a swimming pool. Pool towels are provided. It is close to the motorway and autoroute and easily reached from both MÃ¡laga and Gibraltar airports. It is 2 kms up a surfaced track and just ten minutes drive from the town, beach and port. You will need a car. We have two friendly dogs and three indoor cats (the animals do not go in the guest room).
Estepona is a very old fishing and farming town long popular with Spanish holiday makers and has a great deal to offer in the way of restaurants, tapas bars and places of interest. The wide prize-winning sandy beach has numerous beach bars and restaurants. Its flower filled streets and newly-opened orchid house have given it the name of €The Garden of the Costa del Sol€.
Behind Estepona rises the majestic Sierra Bermeja mountain, almost 1,500m high with rare Abies Pinsapo pines, a refuge and picnic tables. Walkers will find a variety of well marked tracks. As a long- standing resident, I would be happy to advise you on where to go and what to see. Please get I touch.
