Top 6 new residential complexes in Estepona for sale in 2021

Overview of the best new developments in Estepona with sales starting in 2021. In this article you will learn features of each complex. Where to invest and how to pay interest-free installments? Read now.
At the beginning of 2021 the Spanish property market started a gradual recovery, while people are waiting to get vaccinated and investоrs are thinking about plans for the coming season.

For this article we have chosen Estepona, which is considered one of the most promising destinations for buying a home, not only on the Costa del Sol but in the whole of Spain.

Unlike neighbouring Marbella, it still has plenty of available land to build on and many options for various budgets. This is especially true of those complexes being built right now because it is still possible to choose the layout which suits your needs and to obtain instalment plan until the work is completed. You can also book these apartments after remote video-viewings which our colleagues on the Costa del Sol will arrange for you. This type of remote viewing is becoming more and more demanded these days.

In total we have more than 200 new-build projects in this location. In this guide we have chosen six complexes for you to consider in 2021. Let's go!

1. The Sapphire on the beachfront

We will begin with the most expensive complex on our list in price descending order. The Sapphire residential complex is lоcated in one of Estepona's most prestigious areas, on the sea front and just a short walk from the marina, close to the centre. From here you can quickly reach Puerto Banus, Marbella, as well as the airports of Malaga and Gibraltar by public transport.
Ciudad Quesada
Project of the complex (in the center)
The development has everything that investors love about Estepona: a combination of a rich cultural heritage and the traditional attributes of an old fishing village, a variety of golf courses in the surrounding area (over 10 golf resorts), quality service and entertainment to suit all tastes. The facilities are designed to help owners distract from everyday life, relax after a hard day and take care of body & mind. There are outdoor and indoor pools available all year round, SPA and a fully equipped gym. The terrace overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Additionally, the urbanization has a direct access to the beach (less than 50 metres to the beach).
The Sapphire consists of 14 apartments and penthouses with excellent finishing. Construction begins in April-May 2021. Ground floor apartments have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a total living space of 87.90m² and a terrace of 36m². Price starts from €670,000. All the materials aer of the highest quality. Buying this apartment allows the owner to get the investor's "Golden Visa".
Features of the apartments:
  • Seafront
  • Sea views
  • Total area from 123 m² to 468 m²
  • Price range €670,000 - €3,500,000

Advantages: The obvious advantage is the front line of the sea, which is rare enough on the market. Usually the first lines of the coast in Spain are already busy, and only few new constructions are offered with this option. The promenade that connects Estepona and Marbella starts from this complex.

The minimum property price here is €670,000. This would be enough to obtain a Golden Investor Visa for the whole family. At the current stage only a reserve and a down payment of 20% is required. Throughout construction, buyers pay only 30% of the price, with the rest going towards payment after the property is completed.
First line property is highly demanded– it can be sold easily and is always desired for rent. People choose these types of properties primarily for vacationing. If you want, you may put your savings into this type of property and earn good money on letting apartments of this level. During the high season you can rent them out for €2,500 per week.
This complex is being built at the very beginning of Estepona on the Gibraltar side, that is, in the western part of the city, 20 minutes from the port on foot. From this complex, in fact, is the start of the city's promenade. This ensures there are no crowds under your windows. You step outside and the promenade starts right away. No one will reach the Sapphireon purpose so you'll feel as if this part of the beach is your own, private place. Well, except in August there might be more tourists than usual.

This place is perfect for those who are looking for seafront accommodation but seek privacy. Such an option is not easy to find, which is why this complex is valuable. It is only a 5 minute walk to school, shopping centre, pharmacy, restaurants and bars, hotel, spa, tennis court and more. And the views, of course: you will have a chance to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea, Africa and the Straits of Gibraltar. Construction will begin in May 2021, ready in spring 2023.

2. Valle Romano Green private villas

The next option also belongs to the luxury real estate sector. This complex consists of eight villas, masterfully integrated into the surrounding nature. The urbanization is surrounded by gardens and golf courses, and there is also a breathtaking view of the mountains. The distance to the sea is 1200 metres.
The villas are on two floors, with one living-dining room and three bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and access to the covered terrace, which not only offers the Mediterranean panoramic views, but also visually enhances the space through the exterior. The architectural design of the interior spaces is functional. There is a balance between large open spaces, visually connected to each other, and private zones.

Each villa features its own private swimming pool. According to the developer, the villas have been designed to meet the latest energy efficiency requirements, avoiding harmful emissions and reducing the bills.

Living space is 142.70 m², terraces are 121.40 m² and plots around 495 m². The villas are priced at € 668,000 and this investment also qualifies for a Golden Visa.

Features of the villas:
  • 3 Bedrooms / 3 bathrooms
  • Villa's area – 142 m²
  • Terrace – 121 m²
  • Plot – 495 m²
  • Price – € 668,000
Advantages: The combination of the perfect location and the modern design are the main pros of the project. In addition, Valle Romano Green is just about the only option for a house with a plot and sea views in Estepona in 2021. In high season the villa can be rented out to tourists for €5000 per month.
These villas are 50% ready. They are situated on a hill, one above the other. There are eight villas in total and only two are left for sale, so we advise you to hurry up. Everything around Valle Romano Green is brand new, an infrastructure is being created just for this complex, the area is gated and guarded – truly a high level of security. You can find schools close by so it is suitable for vacation as well as for permanent living. When completed, the property can be resold for 20% higher price. The area is very popular with golf-lovers, as there are many courses around. You can rent out this property to golf-players for 1500-2000 EUR per week, all year round. In high season – for an even higher price. Again, these villas are covered by the Golden Visa programme.

3. South Bay – bungalows for families with children

Let's leave the Golden Visa properties and move on to the mid-budget options. The new South Bay development is just three minutes from the sports centre, 10 minutes from Estepona port, 20 minutes from Marbella and 50 minutes from Malaga airport. The distance to the sea is 750 metres. There are several supermarkets and pharmacies within walking distance. The complex offers two swimming pools (for adults and children) and a gym. Each apartment has covered and/or open terraces. One parking space per apartment is included in the price.
Phase 3 is currently under construction: 77 bungalows (apartments with neighbours above or on the side) divided into five blocks. Two, three and four bedroom options to choose from. Depending on the floor, area (77 m²–105 m²) and terraces, prices for bungalows here range from €262,000 to €396,000.
  • 2 bedrooms/3 bathrooms
  • Size - from 77 m²
  • Terraces from 56 m²
  • 750 meters from the sea
  • Price – from €262 000

Advantages: There is a park in front of the complex and nothing will ever be built in front of the windows. Some bungalows have sea views. Nearby is the sea, yacht marina and town centre. School and kindergarten are also there for your convenience, which is perfect for relocation.
These bungalows are also on the hill, which is a typical location for the Costa del Sol for a seaview. The South Bay complex offers a completely new infrastructure: entrances and exits built especially for property owners, and a high level of security. In the neighbouring park there is a huge sports complex with a spa with yoga, pilates and boxing. You will find a school and a kindergarten nearby.

The neighbourhood is called Las Mesas, a perfect place for families with children of all ages. The school accepts students from three to seventeen years – that is a full educational cycle. The school is public, free of charge. The sea is 10 minutes away on foot. Now the third phase of the complex is under construction, it will be ready in the spring of 2022.

4. Lots of light and windows to the south

At number four, we are presenting you the new elegant complex of apartments in the Estepona area. It is a gated urbanisation (currently under construction) with a nice location, surrounded by mountains and gardens, 1200 metres from the sea. Nearby you will find a green golf course, which is why the area is loved by golf-players. All apartments have a sea view.
Project of the complex, view from above
Project of the complex, view from above
Close to the AP-7 motorway, which connects the area to Marbella (10 minutes drive) and Malaga airport (45 minutes). The surrounding area has a marina, golf resorts, educational, health and leisure centres, beautiful beaches and the best gastronomy offer on the Costa del Sol.

The urbanisation is made up of 115 spacious apartments and penthouses with 2 to 4 bedrooms, parking, storage rooms, spacious terraces and private gardens for the ground floor apartments. The houses are designed according to the "open space" concept, the orientation towards the south provides light and air to each property.
Common area with a swimming pool
The complex has two swimming pools, a gym and a social club surrounded by lawns and flower beds. For sale 4 ground floor apartments: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living area from 84,30 m² to 103,50 m², terraces from 38 m² to 69 m². Price ranges from €231,000 to €256,500.

  • 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms
  • Apartments size from 84.30 m²
  • Terraces from 38 m²
  • 1.2 km to the sea
  • Price – from €231,000
Advantages: The apartments in this complex have a spacious layout and lots of light. A parking space and a terrace is included in the price. All the main points of attraction (beach, centre of Estepona, schools, golf resorts) can be reached in five to ten minutes. 70% of the price is due to pay upon completion of construction.
Construction will start in May 2021, with completion planned for spring 2023. Here is an interesting point – you can pay slowly. The first 30% of the cost is due to pay over eight months, and the other 70% only after it is ready. So these apartments are suitable for those who want to get an interest-free purchase without hurry. The beach is 3-4 minutes by car. The centre of Estepona is also close by. This complex is perfect for permanent living, as well as for earning on the letting. There is a business school and a golf academy nearby, which is perfect for letting all year round.

The apartments are located so that each one has a private terrace. An underground parking space is included in the price. From the parking lot, there is an elevator that takes you to your apartment.

5. Amphora Beach – green gardens and futuristic design

Another great investment option on the Costa del Sol this year is the Amphora Beach complex under construction in Manilva, a suburb of Estepona on the "New Golden Mile". Here, too, all the apartments have a sea view.
You can choose between two and three bedroom apartments, located in a community with gardens and parking. The sea, nature and over 300 days of sunshine a year come together in a residential complex of around 14,000 m². "Discover a corner of tranquillity and harmony by the sea on the New Golden Mile. The sea will be your main neighbour in the new complex", says the advertisement.
  • 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms
  • Area – from 86 m²
  • Terraces from 25 m²
  • 200 metres to the sea
  • Price – from €181,000
Advantages: This place is away from the "big city", which emphasizes the peace around and proximity to the sea. Suitable for holidays, as well as for permanent living. Great price too! There is an international school nearby if you have children of a school age.
Sales started a couple of months ago and construction will start in the summer. So you can still make a profit on the investment. The house will be finished in the summer of 2023 together with a road that will be built for it, so you can sell the apartment at a much greater price. This is the second phase of construction, the first one is completely sold out and the demand is great.

There will be a large communal area with a swimming pool and a barbecue area. The beach is only 200 metres away and there is a good choice of bars and restaurants nearby. There is a health centre too. The view of the sea is available even from the lower floors, as the property is being built on a hill. Once again, this is a great option for an investment now, just before construction starts. It is exactly that corner of tranquility by the sea everyone seeks for escape, so the apartment can be let on a weekly/daily period. If you are thinking about moving with a family, then 15 minutes away, in Sotogrande, there is a prestigious international college with many English-speaking children. Their school bus stops right in front of Amphora Beach complex.

6. Best value for money – Ventura

Our last option on the list, like the previous three, is marked with a "cheap" badge in the catalogue. Perhaps this is where you'll find the best value for money on the entire Costa del Sol in 2021.
The Ventura complex is located in the heart of Estepona, on the second line of the sea. Apartments are equipped with advanced technology, including whirlpool showers, LED lighting and other details, making this project one of the most up-to-date in terms of interior design.
Communal swimming pool
Apartments offer 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Living space starts from 51m² and prices – from €180,000. Now you also have the opportunity to purchase a commercial property on the ground floor at the developer's price.
  • 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom
  • Area starts from 51 m²
  • 160 metres from the sea
  • Price – from €180 000

Advantages: The location is perfect! Close to the centre and the beach. The best value for money. Opportunity to invest in commercial premises.
The location of Ventura is unique, we can say: the complex is built on Estepona's main commercial street, calle Real. In other words, it is a business centre and the second line of the sea at the same time. Plus, if you buy an apartment on the ground floor, you can purchase a commercial space and earn on this real estate – to let it for a minimum of 5 years with a profit of 8-10% and without investing in furniture or anything else. Well in general, the price of 180,000 EUR for a property in such a place is almost impossible to find.

7. Conclusion

Buying a new property in Spain has always been considered a more profitable investment than buying a secondary. With the start of the coronavirus pandemic this trend has only intensified: it is expected that in the next few years the local market may experience a shortage of new homes. This is due to cuts in the number of building licences issued. At the same time, the demand for new builds remains stable, the cost of construction has risen, which will soon have an impact on the price.

That is why we recommend our clients to think about buying at the very start of the sale of any property, while it is still under construction. That way you get a lower price, better choice and an opportunity to pay in installments. Do not forget that the possession of real estate in Spain is the basis for obtaining a residence permit in the country, and therefore – permission to enter Spain even in times of closed borders.
