The Costa Del Sol (or 'Sun Coast') in the Malaga Province in Southern Spain, stretches from Sotogrande in the West (near Gibraltar) to Nerja in the East.  It is a mature and sought after holiday destination, and over the years has also become a preferred year round home and lifestyle destination for many nationalites. It offers  a range of sandy beaches, cliffs and coves, wonderful vistas, a vibrant lifestyle, sophisticated (as well as casual) shopping environments, an extensive array of restaurancts and bars, as well as wonderful sporting facilities. From well developped bustling towns through to quieter countryside and a lovely hinterland -- this is an environment that caters for a full rage of personal preferences. The major towns include Malaga (the provincial capital with lots of historic culture and character), Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona, Sotogrande, Mijas, Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Torrox and Nerja. The main airport in the region is Malaga International Airport, and secondly Gibraltar International Airport is a convenient option for the Western areas of the Costa Del Sol (CDS). Additionally, there is a well developed bus and train system along the CDS.

Rebecca : Director

"I have lived on the coast for 17 years and bought a property in Estepona about 13 years ago. I have never looked back. I started working for one of the UK's largest real estate companies 15 years ago and worked with them for many years.

My knowledge of the coast is superb, as is my experience at finding suitable properties for my clients. I am also passionate about ensuring that your best interests are being looked after at all times.

Every day is different at Casa First and I love meeting new people who often go from being clients, to becoming new friends.

Hopefully we can meet over a coffee in Estepona port or my office to discuss your requirements and start the journey in finding your home together."
