Lovely Beach Front Holiday Apartment
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This lovely, spacious and airy holiday rental apartment is south facing and has unspoilt front line views of the sea, beach and promenade. You can hear the sounds of the relaxing waves from inside the apartment. It is set on 2 levels like a house so it gives you plenty of space inside and outside. It has absolutely amazing panoramic views from the many terraces that surround it. From the front terraces you can see the Marina at Caleta de Velez which is to the left, the sea is directly in front, and to the right is the beach and promenade with views all the way to Torre del Mar. All rooms, except for the bathrooms, have patio doors to outside terraces allowing the fresh sea breeze to flow through the apartment. You can sit back and relax in the spacious lounge with its separate dining room area or the master bedroom upstairs to enjoy these views and the sound of the waves.
The complex has a communal pool and a tennis court. The 4km beach and flat promenade stretches from just outside of the apartment to Torre del Mar or the other way to Algarobbo Costa so is perfect for strolling along as they are lined with plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy on the way, at cheap prices! No hills to contend with! Less than 2 minutes walk to the nearest café/bars, restaurants, shops, banks in several directions. Aldi supermarket is across the road as well as the street market every Saturday. Baviera Golf course is less than 5 mins drive.

The Andalucia region
The Costa Del Sol is renown for its excellent climate throughout the year, which makes it one of the most popular holiday destinations. Not only a summer resort but the mild climate means you can take advantage of a range of outside activities during the winter months. Caleta de Velez is situated between Torre del Mar and Algarrobo Costa - both are within easy walking distance.
The area is flat and has not been over developed as with some of the west coast areas - original features have been preserved so you can still enjoy typical streets, squares, traditional food at good prices. There is a good bus service into coastal resorts east of Caleta de Velez such as Torrox Costa or Nerja, famous for its caves, 20 minutes.
Malaga city can also be reached by bus and has a train station to some of the resorts on the west coast. A small working town slightly inland close to Torre del Mar is Velez Malaga. Some typical white washed Andalucian villages to discover such as Frigiliana and Torrox Pueblo.
Caleta De Velez
Caleta de Velez 4 km long flat promenade/beach stretches to Torre del Mar - approx 10 minutes walk and in the other direction to Algarrobo Costa. You'll will often see joggers in the morning so if you want to get fit then this location is perfect and its on your door step! The promenade does continue along further than 4 km for the more experienced runners.
There are bars and restaurants on the beach and promenade serving traditional specialities. There is exercise equipment and children's park facilities on the beach at Caleta, Algarrobo and Torre del Mar.
There is a bus stop just two minutes across from the apartment block and there is Aldi supermarket so you can take the shopping trolley that's in the apartment and walk across easily.
There are water sports as well as boat moorings at the marina which is just a few minutes walk. On the other side of the apartment block is like a traditional town with lots of little family run cafe bars, restaurants plus supermarkets, banks, bread shop, cake shops, a new gym etc.
Every Saturday morning this area hosts a huge street market, great for local produce - this is one of the best markets in the area.
An aqua park is close by as well as a shopping centre. Baviera golf is close too.
Cyclists can hire bikes in Torre del Mar from 4 euros per day or scooters from 14 euros per day or even a motorbike from 34 euros per day. If you don't fancy running along the promenade then a cycle ride is great too because it is all flat!
At night if you walk along the promenade towards Torre del Mar you will find the main area and nightlife.

"A secret bargain"
This must be one of the secret bargains of Spain. A well-equipped super sun-soaked hideaway with direct views of the charming fishing port of Caleta and a short stroll from the splendid promenade to the bustling Torre de Mar. A rare stretch of the Costa de Sol to have retained its authenticity (real Spaniards live and work here) and to have escaped the curse of continuous concrete. Highly recommended.

"Had a brilliant holiday"
We spent a 10 day out of season holiday with four teenagers! We were a little worried that they would be bored but in fact we all had a fabulous time. My husband and I had a very relaxing and cultural break and they managed to find plenty to do both during the day and the night. The apartment was excellent and really well positioned for the beach and local amenities. It was on a good bus route to Malaga and Nerja. The local people were extremely friendly and helpful and we soon felt part of the community. There were a variety of good restaurants and a local Lidls for those evenings you want to eat in!! All in all we had a fabulous time and would certainly return again!

"Very clean, well appointed and well positioned apartment on the water's front"
Three adults travelled with one 7 year old... The apartment had everything we needed and was spotless... The owner very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed for around the area.
The walks along the promenade good for children and even in mid September, there were many bars and a variety of restaurants open..
A fantastic time was had by all...
