We live on the very edge of the town, 10 yards from the beach, 5 minutes walk into the "old" town, and 10 minutes walk to carrefour. All the supermarkets, bars, shops, restuarants are here ....
For Alcampo you need to go to Marbella, about 20/30 minutes drive.
I think you would like it here
Hi Sue. You will have to stop being so informative or this could become your full time job, Ha Ha. I have just read your reply to another post and would like to ask you a few things, I would also appreciate any other members input of course
now somethings I wanted to ask are more suited to Private messaging but can't seem to find it, is there none on this site or am I blind?
Anyway, at the moment I am undecided between San Pedro or Estepona as I am very new to Spain and do not the areas (or anyone for that matter) I noticed you said that in Estepona there are couples and young families, well I am looking for the opposite, I want the best place for a middle aged female divorcee. I want to meet others in the same position, join groups, share activities etc. I thought that with Estepona being so big it might not be as easy to meet such people as in the smaller town of San Pedro, I don't want to be rattling around a big town alone, surrounded by families and children. So what do you think for me Estepona or San Pedro? Also the area where you live sounds just what I am looking for but I don't want to ask you exactly where it is on a public forum, if there is no PM facility, how can I get this info off you? I am also looking for somewhere to stay (even a share) in either of the two places for one month (April) so I can have a good look round before commiting to a 6 month contract, this again is something more suited to private messaging. Help how do I get round that?
Thanks in advance for any help and info from members regarding anything I have mentioned.
