3 Bedroom holiday apartment rental in Almunecar (Taramay)
Lovely apartment, big terrace, large pool, views of sea and mountains. Walk 5 minutes to beach, shops and restaurants, quiet area Almuñecar.Two bathrooms, multi-channel TV and WiFi.
Our apartment “El Tesorillo” is situated outside the town just five minutes from the beach in area known as Taramay. The apartment is one hour´s drive from Malaga airport and is easy to find from the main road, although once inside it is quiet and has glorious sea and mountain views.
The apartment has three bedrooms sleeping up to six people, two bathrooms, a fitted kitchen with electric cooker, fridge, washing machine and hot water tank, and dining/living room leading onto a large part-shaded terrace where you can eat al fresco and gaze at the view, including hang-gliders drifting down from the hills.
The bedrooms are furnished with fitted wardrobes, bedside tables, reading lights and they comprise one double bed, a twin and a single. There is a multi-channel satellite TV system with all popular British, French, German and Spanish channels, and a DVD if you want to bring your own entertainment with you.
Apart from the beach, which is five minutes walk away (down the hill) and has two pleasant chiringuitos, there is also a large pool for the exclusive use of the complex. The pool is open mid-June to mid-September.
Taramay is a pleasant area with its own restaurants, shops and beach bars. There is a four star hotel nearby which has health and fitness facilities and a bar with live music, and there are more night time entertainments and fiestas in nearby Almuñecar.
Although Almuñecar is a busy holiday town, it has the heart of an old Andalucian pueblo with narrow cobbled streets. The old town is full of tapas bars, bodegas, restaurants and interesting shops of all kinds. The town market sells fresh fish, meat and vegetables and the Friday outdoor market has clothes, shoes and local products.
Attractions include a Roman fish-salting factory, botanical gardens (jazz festival in July), bird park, castle, museum and a water park.
Out of town you can travel up Almuñecar's tropical valley to the mountains. A visit to the beautiful lake at Bermejeles and the old Moorish town of Alhama de Granada, with hot springs. If you want you can call at El Ingenero shopping centre, with 12 screen cinema complex, snack bars, shops and a huge hypermarket, on the way back. There is also a 1st class golf course here, and in the opposite direction towards Granada in Salobreña.
Riding is available just as you leave Almunecar through the Tunnel Taramay, up the side of the Hotel Taramay, (Centro Equestre Tropical) and down below the Hotel Salobrena.
This is a spacious apartment which accommodated me and several friends with ease. Tesorillo beach is very nice, there are two bar-restaurants in the cove and several more either side a short walk away, all of which seem friendly and have a good ambience. The apartment is well equipped and clean, and the directions we were given were very good. The owner was there to greet us anyway and show us how things worked.
The apartment has two bathrooms and everything seemed to be clean and in working order. We didnt notice any disturbance at night as you so often find with apartments near the beach in the middle of summer.
The best feature of the apartment is the terrace. It is part shaded to cope with the heat of the midday sun and in the evening the light on the foothills falling away to the coastline is just magical. Sometimes you can see hang-gliders gently drifting down to land on the beach and this is always a nice thing to watch.
The apartment is only 5 minutes walk to the beach but the climb back is uphill. If you feel lazy you can take the car down to the lower gate and park there, as the urbanization is controlled by security gates, so there is less competition for parking spaces than along the beach road generally in high summer.
There are plenty of places to eat and buy things within a short walk of the apartment. Getting in to the centre of Almunecar is either a very pleasant walk along the seafront or else a hopper bus along the same road, or of course by car if you have one. There are plenty of parking spaces nearer to town.

"Great Apartment and Great Location"
I arrived here with my husband and two small children after spending 5 days in Tim's other apartment in La Herradura. It was a real adventure to split up the holiday into two sections and allowed us to explore different areas. The apartment itself is lovely and has a huge terrace. It's a 5 minute walk to the swimming pool and 2 minutes from there you are at the beach. The views are stunning and will not disappoint. You can walk into Almunecar old town or take the local bus which passes the waterpark. There are plenty of places to eat and lots of little shops dotted along the way. It's a great area and we are looking forward to returning!!

"Very spacious and comfortable apartment"
The apartment is very spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Large terrace with views of the coast, sea, and surrounding countryside. Quiet and peaceful.
Lots of large sandy beaches and secluded coves - ideal for a beach holiday.
Good base for touring the local area.

"Property rent without hesitation"
We arrived at the apartment thinking we would feel a little cramped as we were 2 families with 2 young kids each but at the end the place could easily receive all of us with plenty room for everyone. It has even 2 bathrooms which we did not realise at the time of booking but really appreciated being 2 families... The apartment was clean and well equipped and everything was functioning. We particularly enjoyed the dish washer, feeling really on holidays. Another quality of the apartment is its terrace that offers a fantastic view on the sea. The beach close to the apartment is wonderful with banana trees growing in the sand and a nice bar/restaurant. You really feel miles and miles away from Europe... The owner welcomed us and showed us how things worked. We were also given some indications of places to go.
