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.

"It was exactly as described, and in excellent condition"
We spent eleven very enjoyable nights in this compact studio. It was exactly as described, and in excellent condition. We had superb weather (early May), with many beautiful sunsets from the balcony, so that towards the end of our stay the pool had warmed up very nicely . The promenade stroll to Torre Del Mar was very pleasant. We also took the bus into Malaga for some sightseeing, and it was an easy two hour drive for a day's visit to Granada. Otherwise we toured several of the local villages, and rambled around the hills. All really scenic. Caleta is quaint, but not really touristy at that time of year. The market was nice, and the internet guy was very friendly.
Sue and Mark were very welcoming and responsive to the couple of small requests we made. They also provided plenty of useful info. We would not hesitate to go back. We would recommend the studio as a really nice base for enjoying this delightful region.

"Super Relaxation & Convenient Location"
With the exception of the bed mattress, this studio was just perfect. Yes, the size is small, but we were in Spain and the weather was outstanding - so the patio space added to the indoor space. The location is convenient for day trips throughout Andalucia - and the Sue & Mark (hosts) very helpful. We even had a great evening out with them in Caleta! If you are looking for peace and quiet, with beautiful surrounds, and an outstanding beach - I recommend Caleta del Sol and Sue & Mark. Easy to walk to shops, beach, bars and dining from the studio - but if you want to venture out, Caleta is a great "hub" for the rest of Andalucia. If we hit southern Spain again - we would certainly "home base" with Sue & Mark again!

"Owners were fab and facilities great, meaning a very relaxing, nice hol"
Myself and my partner have just returned from a weeks stay at Caleta de Velez, in the studio apartment.
We found the owners, Sue and Mark and their family very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The studio had all the facilities we required including a DVD player, a BBQ on our balcony and a pool.
The area was still very Spanish, and not too commercialised.
This isn't a place you should go if you want to go out drinking and partying.
However, if you are looking for a quiet location for a relaxing holiday then this is definitely the place for you.
There is only 1 slight downside to this apartment, the walk up the hill to the apartment.
This is ok if you are fairly fit and healthy, but I wouldn't advise this if you are particularly unfit or have difficulty walking.
All in all, we had a very enjoyable holiday and thought it was great value for money.
We will definitely look into staying again. some point in the future.

"A friendly, affordable clean and contemporary apartment for couples."
We stayed at Caleta del sol for two weeks where we had the most relaxing and comfortable stay. Our hosts Sue and Mark were wonderful from start to finish, everything we needed was provided and we couldn't have asked for better. The apartment was great, clean and quite spacious for a Studio. We had a kitchen area and a beautiful deck with a BBQ and seating area. The pool was beautiful and well used by us during our stay aswell as the other BBQ area (yes two BBQ's). The apartment was well placed for exploring if you have a car, only 1 1/2 hours to Granada, Malaga is 40mins down the road and Nerja is beautiful only 30mins aswell as many other places to visit around Caleta. If you would like to experience the real Spain by going to Tapas bars and soaking up the culture as we did this is a good place to begin. Alternatively if you are looking for a beach/relaxing holiday this is also a perfect place for that.
We both loved our stay at Sue and Mark's and would 100% recommend this apartment to friends, family and everyone else.
