Cancelada – Gateway to the real Andalucía
The village of Cancelada, located within the municipality of Estepona, has retained its essential Spanish charm and if you’re a buyer in search of ‘the real Andalucía’ then this charming ‘pueblo’ offers all the pleasures of traditional Spanish village life but with modern amenities close to hand plus contemporary style properties on the edge of town.
Close to the beach
One of Cancelada’s many advantages is that although the village is on the inland side of the N340, residents can walk to the beach within ten minutes. Heaven Beach is one of the coast’s favourite chiringuitos (beach bar) and Pepe’s Beach, which is close to the Costalita development on Cancelada’s beachside, is another favourite for Sunday lunch and an afternoon of sunbathing on the golden stretch of beach.
Agrojardin is a large garden centre on the edge of Cancelada, where you can buy everything botanical as well as pet supplies. The centre also has a bar serving drinks and tapas, and it’s one of those venues where people meet socially, even if they don’t need bedding plants or pet food.
The Estepona area has numerous hiking trails and residents of Cancelada are close to the Rio Guadalmansa ‘Pujerra’ river walk that leads to the sea, but starts (or finishes) inland at the village of Pujerra, where you’ll find an Ermita and numerous bars offering local gastronomy. Its relative isolation means that the village has retained its Andalusian ambience including more top class Bandas de Música (bands playing traditional folk music) than in any other part of the Serranía de Ronda.
The village is replete with restaurants and bars, mostly Spanish like El Carnicero and El Secreto de Baco, whilst Aidan’s Bar & Grill adds a little touch of Irish and British cuisine to Cancelada life. The village has some small stores, a bank, a post office and schools, but residents are within a short drive of the Lidl, Mercadona and Supersol supermarkets as well as international schools.
