There is plenty to see and do in and around Andalusia. Go westward from the villa and you will find Marbella and Puerto Banus the Costa del Sol playgrounds of the rich and famous. Stay a little closer and discover Fuengirola and Benalmadena Marina, both offering sun, sea, sangria and bustling nights out!
Travel inland and you have areas that retain their traditional Spanish ways, Mijas with its tightly packed, white washed houses and Ronda, with its huge cliffs and spectacular drawbridge are both well worth a visit. Granada with the Alhambra Palace and Sevilla and its magnificent cathedral are both very enjoyable day trips.
To the East of the villa is the city of Malaga, which is often overlooked. It hosts the famous Picasso museum and has a Renaissance and Baroque influenced cathedral alongside many shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. Head further East and you travel along a beautiful coastline lined with olive groves and orange trees and along the way you will find Nerja with its famous caves.
Benalmadena Pueblo is only around a 15minute walk from the villa and is a beautifully kept village full of narrow streets with pretty houses. In the Plaza de España around the fountain are several open air restaurants, serving tasty tapas, it is a great place for lunch or dinner sat in the sun or under the shade of the orange trees.
The old Church built on the rock in the Pueblo is surrounded by walkways and gardens from which there is a breathtaking view, and it is all lit up beautifully at night. Castillo Colmenar is a fairytale castle built just below the Pueblo, it is captivating and well worth a visit. There is also a Stupor on an elevated point just around the corner from the villa, whose large dome is covered in gold, very eye catching!
Within walking distance of the villa is the Altos del Higueron shopping centre which has a Carrefour supermarket, a bank, an Italian restaurant which has superb pizzas to eat in or take away. Then there is the Taberna del Frasco bar, a dry cleaners, internet café, excellent Indian restaurant, hairdressers and the very stylish 'Punto Rojo' restaurat and bar. All the restaurants and bars have tables and chairs on the pavement so you can sit watch the world go by.
The villa is 5 minutes in the car from the coast road which leads you to Benalmadena Costa with its 'puerto marina' - a spectacular marina with excellent restaurants and bars that cater for a la carte cuisine and others that are ideal for family meals out. Around the marina are activities for the children and shops for mum and dad and for those that enjoy a late night the bars and clubs are plentiful. Taxi ranks are in abundance and will know how to return to the Pueblo.
Water sports Facilities along the coast include Paragliding, Water ski-ing, Jet-skiing and Banana Boat rides with 'Funny Beach' being a popular destination. Surfing, kite surfing and wind surfing are all becoming popular along the coast.
