The Andalucia region

The Costa del Sol is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Its miles of beautiful sandy beaches and fantastic weather which have kept tourists flocking back year after year to resorts like Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella.

The Costa del Sol caters for young and old alike, offering a host of entertainment choices for the native and visitor alike. The coast boasts one of the highest concentrations of world class golf courses, to the extent that it is often dubbed "The Costa del Golf".

For families there are theme parks, including water parks, go-karting, safari parks and many beautiful public gardens. For younger visitors the main areas of attraction are Benalmadenas Puerto Marina & 24 hour square and Marbellas Puerto Banus. Both are very trendy and chic, but be warned the bars and clubs dont get busy until near midnight and stay open till dawn.

The areas history dates back to the Phoenicians and has since been inhabited by Greeks, Romans and Moors, all of whom have left their mark on the areas architecture and culture. Perhaps less well known is the areas culture, often in the shadow of its neighbour Seville, The Costa and the Malaga province are home to some of the finest Flamenco shows, bull fighting & tapas restaurants.

The areas infrastructure is well organized with the new Autopista del Sol providing access from Malaga to Estepona and beyond to Gibraltar. The old N340 coast road is a little slower but offers some lovely sea views as it winds its way along the coast. Links between Granada, Seville and Cordoba are easily accessible for those wishing to venture further inland.

The International airport has regular flights to most major cities and is located just 10 minutes from Malaga City centre, and is within 30 minutes by car from most other popular resorts on the coast.

i am a lone grandparent with 3 grandchildren in my care. i have been going to the same area in spain for the past 6yrs, and would like to say that the studio is excellent. the best that we have stayed in. it is right were we wanted to be in the gamanol area. the pools are brilliant for the children, and very safe. i found that the garden around the pool area was absolutley lovely, nice and shady for my baby grandson, and a nice place to relax. will definatly book for next year.

"Very pleased with the apartment"

Stayed in the apartment with two friends in late May/early June, apartment was just big enough for three girls and offered everything we needed, very clean and tidy on arrival and after contacting Beverley we were allowed to enter as soon as our flight arrived which was very handy! Apartment located in a nice area, only a short walk to the beach and shops/restaurants etc as well as cheap taxi's located a 2 minute walk from the apartment if needed! Receptionists' were also really helpful and spoke English which was a bonus, overall a really nice holiday would definately recommend the apartment!

"Very Good Location"

The apartment is very well located, about 6 mins walk to the train and around 8 mins to the beach. I was on my own most of the time and felt safe and secure in the block and the area. There is a very good internet shop on the way to Arroya. Just 1 Euro per hour and happy hour is between 3-6pm when it is half price! I initially booked for one month but extended my stay and was there for almost 7 weeks. Thank you Beverley for renting your studio to me. I would be happy to return again one day.
