The Costa Tropical region
The area is known as the Costa Tropical because of the all year round sunny climate. This coastal area begins just after Nerja and is very different from the Costa del Sol. The stunning cliffs of Cerro Gordo shelter some beautiful coves and beaches. The Punta de la Mona is a pine clad headland where you will discover the attractive Marina del Este which offers a range of water sports and pretty harbourside restaurants. Moving towards Almunecar is the pretty horse shoe bay of La Herradura . To the east of Almunecar is the whitewashed village of Salobrena with the peaks of the Sierra Nevada in the background. One and half hour drive will take you to the ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada or the beautiful countryside of the Alpujjaras. The historic city of Granada with the amazing Alhambra palace and gardens is just one hour away.
The Almunecar area
Almunecar and its handsome Moorish castle sit on a small hill between the mouths of two rivers. Almunecar has managed to retain the atmosphere and character of an old Spanish town with winding narrow streets and tapas bars. Besides tourism, fishing and the growing of tropical fruits remain at the heart of the town's day to day life.
Almunecar has beaches with good facilities - beach beds and parasols for hire, showers and toilets and life-guards in high season. The beach fronts are lined with typical Spanish restaurants and bars serving delicious seafood and tapas.
The town has a water park, bird park and botanical gardens.
There is an open air market every Friday selling Spanish leather goods and pottery as well as bargain clothing.
The first Saturday of each month is the craft and flea market- well worth a browse.

Lets get the negative our of the way first, access is a bit scary (no barriers on the upper streaches of the road), although you do get used to it.
Other than that the villa is all that it promises and if you want a holiday where you make your own fun either or lay in the sun reading, cooking excellent ingrediants (at amazing prices, especially fish) or larking in the pol, boules, ping pong etc this is the place. Our week the weather was especially good which enhanced our experience.
An added benefit is that fairly close are a couple of very Spanish resorts Almunecar and Salobrena great for a late lunch and a glass of cenveza.

I stayed at this villa with all my daughter, her husband and all my granchildren. There were ten of us in all! What a lovely time we had and with all the spacious rooms and gardens we never felt to be on top of each other. There was plenty for the more energetic youngsters in our group with table tennis, badminton and they had lots of fun in the pool. I'm 73 years old and found the villa very relaxing and really enjoyed sitting on the terraces reading and looking at the lovely views.
We had some nice trips out to the local beaches and down into Almunecar where I loved to take a coffee or a glass of wine in one of the pretty squares. All in all it was a lovely relaxing holiday and the villa is a great place for a family holiday.
