All Eyes on Estepona


All Eyes On Estepona

Seeking to escape the madding crowd, Estepona was my first choice location on the Costa del Sol. I’d booked a month-long stay on an inland horse farm, soaking in my wonderful new surroundings on weekly trips with the crew to buy feed, straw and hay – even mucking in with the occasional mucking out!

After renting a freshly decorated sea-view apartment in the cosy Old Town, aptly addressed Calle Nueva 1 (1 New Street), Costa del Sol News editor Suzan Davenport accepted (and paid favourably for) my first photojournalism proposal – a two-page walking guide to the town’s colourful ceramic street signs depicting some of Spain’s celebrated cities.

Following publication, Tourism Councillor at the time, Marta Solís, emailed out of the blue: “Congratulations on the deep knowledge shown in your article promoting our town,” so nine years later it’s good to share this post about an authentic Costa del Sol destination.
