The inner city of Málaga is just behind the harbour. The quarters of El Perchel, La Trinidad and Lagunillas surround this centre, with lovely historic buildings, castle, and Picasso Museum in the old part of Málaga, with lots of tapas bars, restaurants and shops, this city is well worth a visit.
Nerja is accessible by bus, or 15 minutes by car, with the famous El Balcon, narrow streets, restaurants, bars and lots of nightlife.
Our apartment is centrally positioned for exploring Andalucia, Cadiz, Gibraltar, Seville, Marbella, Ronda, Granada, Sierra Nevada, and Almeria are all within a 2-3 hour drive.
Caleta de Velez
Caleta de Velez is on the east of the Costa Del Sol. It is a pretty fishing town only 30 kilometres from Malaga with superb beaches. It is next to the towns of Torre del Mar, and Velez Malaga, these remain a very Spanish area where the spanish way of life exists. A promenade runs along the Mediterranean coastline from the marina at Caleta to the end of Torre del Mar and is a pleasant walk, passing a great selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, and childrens play areas. During the summer months there are market stalls, children’s fun fairs and local open-air entertainment. Sun lounges and parasols are available for hire on many parts of the beach.
There is an impressive marina, a large and colourful Saturday morning street market and the 18-hole Baviera golf course is close by.
Caleta means 'Bay' in Spanish and the name of this town literally means The Bay of Velez-Malaga. Velez-Malaga is the historic capital of the area with a traditional town centre, theatre, central hospital, the water park plus the large El Ingenio shopping mall with shops (such as Mango, Zara, Springfield, New Yorker etc) and restaurants, is just a kilometre away. Caleta is unique in having a village atmosphere with all amenities on hand, you can stroll along the lovely promenade, lined with palm trees and nesting green parrots, to the lively adjacent resort of Torre del Mar, and it is a two minute drive to the Mediterranean Motorway which connects east to west and north to south.
The local full 18 hole golf course is Baviera Golf. 3 minutes drive to the club house (discount available) visit: www.bavieragolf.com for details. Other golf courses are available within a 20 km radius.
There are many local banks, shops, bakery's, chemist, newsagents, and restaurants/bars in Caleta.
Everyday of the week there is a market locally, except Sundays, in different villages, on Saturday the market is in Caleta.
Local activites include horse riding, scuba diving, aqua park, and go karting.
There is a ski resort at Sierra Nevada in Granada which is one hour and half hours by car.
Granada’s Alhambra Palace and science park are not to be missed and take about one and a half hours drive.
The Palace at Seville is another attraction not to be missed and takes about 2 hours by car.
Malaga Centre is about 25 minutes by car/about 40 minutes by frequent buses.

"You get what you pay for"
Sue and Mark are very helpful and the house is in an excellent location close to the village. The house has constant hot water and the showers are excellent.We were there in May and the pool area did not get the sun until mid day and it was 3.30pm before the whole pool area was in the sun.
The bedroom with en suite has two futon beds both on the floor in an area that is reached by three steps of differing heights. It is not very easy for an adult as you cannot stand up in this area. The house is value for money but there are some drawbacks. We also rented the studio which is very small and has no real sitting area other than the bed and the outside terrace.

We spent four weeks in the apartment, and everything was just perfect for everybody. Our family with two children (2 and 5) was living downstairs, while the grandparents shared the studio for one and two weeks each - and everybody loved this stay. The apartments had everything we needed, and the outside area was great for both children and grown ups. The pool was warm and clean, and the area was perfect for relaxing and playing.
We had a lot of meals at the eclipse restaurant down at the beach, and we would highly recommend it. The food was great, not that expensive, and you get big portions. Good service and childfriendly.
Caleta de velez is also a good place to stay to get around. We visited the nice aquapark in Torre del Mar, Nerja, La Herredura, Ronda and the nearest cities. Torre del Mar is a really nice town, big enough to have everything but not that touristic. As the apartment is up the hills, we would recommend a car. It is walking distance to the beach and the town of Caleta, but if you want to bring water etc by walking, it could be heavy. It is not that easy to find out when the buses are going, so if you want to get around, a car will also make it easier.
To make a long story short, we loved everything about this stay, and we really don`t know where these four weeks went. Thanks to Sue, Mark, the daugthers, the cats and the dog :-)We hope to come back!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 8 night stay at the apartment and studio. The accommodation was immaculate and everything you needed was provided. The pool was fantastic and was well used during our visit by my daughters. The views are fantastic and the outdoor seating is a beautiful place to spend relaxing evenings.
Our hosts, Sue and Mark and their daughters were incredibly friendly and helpful and they have literally thought of everything to make your holiday a fantastic experience.
We had the most enjoyable, relaxing holiday and would highly recommend a visit to anyone thinking of staying here.
The boat trip by Sue and Mark's friend Ena is a fanstastic experience and should not be missed - the dolphins were a magnificent and special bonus.
