Andalucía’s Costa del Sol, which runs for 800km and boasts 126 beaches, is regarded as one of the most famous stretches of coastline in the world. Anyone looking to buy a holiday home with sea views will find the area caters for all ends of the market from attractive new-build apartments in the up-and-coming town of Estepona
and its New Golden Mile to spacious villas in the fashionable addresses of Marbella and Sotogrande.
Moving away from the seaside and heading into the hills which quickly start to rise, properties in the pueblo blanco village of Benahavis
and its elite hideaway La Zagaleta
(where President Putin is rumoured to be completing a vast palace) enjoy vast panoramas of the spectacular coastline.
