Storage in Puerto Duquesa

If you own a home or rent an apartment on the western end of the Costa del Sol and you are looking for storage in Puerto Duquesa, choose a reputable company who will store your goods safely and inexpensively.

Situated on Spain’s sunniest coast is the idyllic marina of Puerto Duquesa. This little piece of paradise boasts 300 berths, a wide variety of bars, restaurants and marina side cafés, and two long, sandy beaches either side of the harbour, which stretch to Estepona and Sotogrande.

Although Duquesa has enjoyed a recent property boom, there are no high rise hotels in the port area, and the marina maintains its original charm and individuality. The area retains a vast amount of unspoilt, natural scenery, while still enjoying some of the best facilities and amenities on the Costa del Sol. Once heralded as the new Puerto Banus, Duquesa has managed to stay small and stylish, without overdoing the glitz and glamour associated with its famous neighbour.

In addition to the fabulous port area, Duquesa is also well known for its wonderful golf course and hotel, boasting views over the Mediterranean. The main N340 motorway passes Duquesa, and the marina is accessed via an underpass. The whole port is closed to traffic, and in addition to the modern pleasure boats, it is still home to a working fishing fleet which lands its daily catches on the harbour side.

Whether it´s miles of pristine beaches (many earning the European Blue Flag for cleanliness) or rugged mountains with their wildlife, the area around Duquesa offers every type of terrain. Rising virtually from the beaches, the nearby mountains and white villages offer visitors the chance to explore the ´real Spain´, only a few kilometres from their holiday accommodation.

Gibraltar is only 30 minutes from Puerto de la Duquesa, and day trips can easily be arranged from the port. Malaga Airport is approximately a one drive away. Since the property boom, demand was outstripping supply for self-contained storage units in Puerto Duquesa as many people rented out their houses, sold their properties or wanted to downsize.

With thousands of ex-pats now living in the Puerto Duquesa area and others spending holidays here, storage facilities offer a great way of storing goods including household items, leisure goods, golf clubs etc.

Whether you are looking for long or short-term storage, choose a reputable company which offers self-contained storage in Puerto Duquesa and one which will be able to give you advice about the best local removal firms to use. Some companies even throw in free van hire so you don’t have to pay to bring your goods into store.
