The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol translates to coast of sunshine and the all year round summer temperatures attract many thousands of visitors to the coast each year in search of sun, sea and sangria!
From November to March there is also the opportunity to combine your sunbathing with a trip to the mountain-top village of Sierra Nevada, where the ski resort atmosphere gives a totally different dimension to your winter break and the snow covered mountain scenery is spectacular. Sip hot wine, have a brandy and coffee, dine overlooking the vast mountain backdrops, have snowball fights in the sunshine, or shop for winter outfits to keep out the cold for when you return home! Skiiers take your ski's, non-skiers...go on give it a try!

Close to Gibraltar, there is also easy access to North Africa, via Ceuta or Tangiers, should you wish to experience a different continent in the same trip, including Camel rides, Snake Charming, Bazaar shopping and the inevitable bargaining that goes with each purchase!

"Penthouse Paradise-July 13"
We love this place, its like home from home now having stayed twice now and booked again for next year.
I left a review after my last stay but unlike that occasion the weather made this stay even better.
Wonderful welcome again when we arrived and we got to meet Jon, Jill and Tomas on this visit (our new friends).
The open plan design is different to others on the site as we had family in another penthouse which did not have the same spacious feel. There is acres of terrace and the sun terrace gives 360 panoramic views up to the pueblo, the mountains and the coast/sea. It also looks down on to the communal pool which is an oasis in the middle of the apartments. The pool was lifeguarded but other than for the lifeguard you could almost have it to yourself even in July up till 5pm-7pm when the locals come home and spend a couple hours in the pool before evening meal. Thats the busiest time.
I barbequed for 8 of us several nights, the ourdoor kitchen at this property with that big 6 seater table is great for family eating.
There are slightly cheaper apartments around but this is worth the bit extra.
Please don't come to this apartment, we want it for ourselves!

This has to be the best apartment we have stayed in.
Extremely comfortable with everything we needed.
Barbaque and out door eating got well used.
Paddle tennis made up for the pool being closed.
Shame about the weather, but the apartment made it all okay!
