The Costa del Sol region
The best climate in Europe, with lots of sunshine all year round - over 300 days of sunshine a year. The climate is mild and equable, the mean annual temperature being about 19 °C (66 °F).
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.
The Caleta de Velez / Caleta del sol area
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.

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.
