Activities

Whether its miles of pristine beaches (many earning the European Blue Flag for cleanliness) or rugged mountains with their wildlife, the La Duquesa area offers every type of terrain. Rising virtually from the beaches, the mountains hide their medieval towns like little jewels ¬ the famed White Villages. Every type of nature recreation is at hand including even winter and spring skiing only two hours away in Granada.

Cosmopolitan Life can be found only twenty minutes away in the "jet-set" city of
Marbella with its hustle and bustle. Shopping experiences of every kind are available ranging from the upscale El Corte Inglés, Spain’s premier department store, to the sprawling La Cañada mall just outside Marbella, to the infinite variety of small shops and boutiques lining the cobble-stoned streets of Old Marbella. Just before Marbella, approaching from La Duquesa, is the international resort of Puerto Banus with its millionaire playground of floating palaces and luxury cars. In addition to the yachts, the port is chock full of all the appropriate designer names such as Versace, Armani, and Donna Karen ¬ for the most discerning shoppers.
