90 m² living area
16 m² terrace area
This apartment has been decorated to our own personal taste & is a holiday home. The standard of the décor & furnishings are luxurious & not of the standard you would normally find in a holiday rental property. My family & I do not use our apartment as much now as we used to, so we have chosen to share it with holiday makers. I hope you enjoy looking at our holiday home & if you do book a holiday here, I am sure you will not be disappointed.
Our apartment has two bedrooms, one with a dressing room & en-suite bathroom. Family bathroom, fully fitted kitchen, utility room, large open planned lounge/dining room.
The living room & main bedroom lead onto the south facing terrace, which has views across the bay.
The terrace has a table, four chairs & a large grill for alfresco cooking.
The views are stunning; the photographs do not do it justice. It is a very peaceful area, with no through traffic, the only sounds that can be heard are the lapping of waves on the beach below.
The kitchen & utility room are equipped with a washing machine, dish washer, oven, hob, microwave oven, iron, pots, pans & table ware.
The apartment is fully air conditioned, decorated to a very high standard & is situated in a small, exclusive apartment building.
I supply towels & bed lining for your use during your stay.
The communal swimming pool has shows, grass area & direct access to the beach via a gate & steps. This also leads down to Marina del Este with its yachts, restaurants & café life.
SWIMMING POOL OPENS ON 2ND JUNE 2012 FOR THIS SEASON.
The swimming pool is only from 2nd June until the end of September, if the weather is still very hot it will stay open into October.
The beach itself has an excellent restaurant, & is only a few steps downhill. The beach has a lovely beach bar, which is child friendly & with free WiFi.
Water sports are available from the marina & the beach. You can scuba diving from the beach which is reputed to be one of the best areas to dive in Europe. There are companies who offer trips along the coast & the bay from the Marina, with or without food & Champagne.
The apartment is situated between La Herradura & Almunecar with easy access to both towns by car.
La Herradura has many good local restaurants both on & off its fine long beach & is also a well known scuba diving hub.
Almunecar has been a thriving town since Roman times & it has all the feel of an old, unspoiled Spanish town. The central square is the hub of the old town which is closed to traffic & is surrounded by small shops, tapas bars & restaurants stretching right down to the beach, some of which are open all night until the morning during the summer months (so we are told!). The late night environment is very safe for both children & teenagers.
The Aquapark lies on the far edge of town & is open during the summer months, they also hold even events with music.
Behind the town the Sierra Nevada rises up to majestic heights & during the winter months the mountains are beautiful with their tops capped with snow. At the very same time Almunecar continues to enjoy its wonderfully pleasant climate which even in midwinter usually blesses visitors with clear blue skies that can be enjoyed in T-shirts during the day plus light sweaters for morning and evening. Up behind the town lies Las Alpujarras, the sub alpine region of the Sierra Nevada, dotted with quaint villages surrounded by wild flower meadows where the famous hams of the region are still dried in the fresh air. Higher still, but still less than an hour’s drive away, lies the famous city of Granada & a little further on is the skiing resort of the Sierra Nevada with its 17 chair & ski lifts offering the best skiing in Spain between December & April, depending of course on local weather conditions. Friends of ours regularly ski at the weekend, commuting from nearby, they say that the skiing is as good as any resort in Austria & the views spectacular.
You really can ski during the day & be back in time for dinner on the beach in the evening.
Golf is available in Salobrena and Caleta De Velez.
A toll free motorway along the coast connects Marina del Este with the international airport of Malaga in 50 minutes.
The climate is mild & offers sunny & excellent day temperatures all year around.
