Casares del Sol is located on Casares Costa in the Bahia de Casares area.
A short 3 minute drive from the entrance of the urbanisation will bring you to the beautiful sandy beaches of Casares or for the more active amongst us, it is a pleasant 15 minute stroll.
There is a fantastic Thai restaurant a 5 minute walk away which has recently enhanced its menu (and also has a great deal for the menu del dia) and the newly built cafeteria offering drinks and snacks around 10 minutes away.
The nearest supermarket is Lidl in Sabinillas (6 minute drive or 30 minute walk) or just a little further on, you will find Supersol, Mercadona and Eroski. If you head in the other direction (towards Estepona) then there is another branch of Mercadona 10 minutes away and a large Carrefour hypermarket around a 15 minute drive away.
The bustling town centre of Sabinillas is 7 minutes by car or a 45 minute walk (You can take a lovely walk along the promenade) Here you will find all the amenities you would need – banks Chemists, clothes shops, hardware shops etc.
If you want to escape the coast, then only 10 minutes in the opposite direction is the village of Casares, narrow streets more designed for horses than cars, and whitewashed houses evoke the feeling of the real Spain.
Here you can find some traditional Spanish ventas such as Venta El Mirador
For the golfers, Casares Golf 9 hole golf course which also offers Spa and Gym facilities, is literally across the road from Casares del sol. The famous Finca Cortesin Resort, Golf Club and restaurants are also very closeby
Specifics of urbanisation
Casares del sol is made up of 547 two and three bedroom apartments including penthouses with rooftop solariums. The apartments are divided into blocks with each block having between 2 and 5 stairwells. The development was built in 2006, and constructed in traditional terracotta style with an additional benefit of being low rise with nothing built above the 2nd floor.
Each apartment comes with an underground parking space and a storeroom and pre installed air conditioning, although most apartments now have full air conditioning installed. Given the development’s location, on the road ascending up to Casares village and the inland town of Gaucin, some of the apartments offer breathtaking sea, mountain and golf views.
Casares del Sol is a large development divided into four phases (known as PMs) Some PMs are larger than others and although all part of the same development, they are managed and controlled separately.
PM1 – Blocks 1-2
PM2 – Blocks 3-20
PM3 – Blocks 23-27
PM4 – Blocks 28-32
The development is set in lush tropical gardens and well-manicured lawns. Only 30% of the urbanisation plot is built on, making the feel of Casares del Sol one of space and openness.
There are 6 pools and 6 children’s pools in total, split across the phases. PMs 1,3 and 4 have a pool and a children’s pool each whilst PM2, the largest of the phases has 3 pools and 3 children’s pools. Each pool services no more than 6 blocks so the pools are never overly busy and there is always room for a swim or a splash about!
There is a community wifi system in place which is managed by the community administrators (Currently Aresi). This is very economical and is an excellent alternative if just using the property as a holiday home.
It should be noted that not all the blocks have lifts, but, as mentioned previously, the highest floor is the second floor.
There is 24 hour security on Casares del Sol. There is a barrier to enter the development and a guardhouse. The security guards regularly patrol the grounds of all phases ensuring peace of mind for the residents and property owners.
