The Andalucia region

Costa del Sol is located in the south of Spain, in the westernmost Mediterranean area, the Costa del Sol spans 161 kilometres of coastline in Málaga Province. The area is famous for its hundreds of beaches to be enjoyed along this coast, from quiet, hidden coves to trendy stretches of sand with fashionable beach clubs populated by celebrities and beautiful people from all over the world. The Costa del Sol stretches along approx. 150km of Málaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations, with its wide sweeps of golden sand. The area's mild climate is the main attraction – visitors and residents alike can enjoy the beaches, as well as alfresco dining plus a wide variety of outdoor activities, all year round.

The Costa de Sol can be divided into two sections, with Malaga city at its centre. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province.

The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Sotogrande, plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella and Puerto Banús. This section has a very international feel, with visitors and residents from all over the world.

One of the reasons why the Costa del Sol has become a world-class travel destination is the Mediterranean climate: mild all year round with an average temperature of 18º C. In the summer, temperatures rise to 25º C-30º C, whereas in winter the never go below 14º C during the day. There are hinterland areas, however, where the climate is continental and therefore marked by greater diurnal and seasonal variations in temperature.

The rainfall pattern also depends on relief. In coastal areas, the average annual rainfall is below 500 millimetres, while in interior zones it can rise to 600-800 millimetres or even over 1,000 in Serranía de Ronda, especially near Sierra de Grazalema. On the whole, the climate of Málaga Province enables visitors to come all year round. In particular, the coastal strip, sheltered from the wind by ranges of relatively high mountains, affords over 300 sunny days a year and nice temperatures in all seasons

One of the most popular pastimes on the Costa is golf – there are over 50 golf courses in the area, with stunning mountain and cliff top locations, offering spectacular views over the area’s varied landscapes, and down to the sea. The villa is ideally situation right in the heart of Spain's golfing centre. In fact the nearest golf course is less than 5 minutes away, there are 10 within 10 minutes, and within 30 minutes there are over 30 courses.

Located in the less well known area of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, between the provinces of Granada and Almeria. The Sierra Nevada ski resort is about two hours away, and is open from November to May. It contains over 100kms of ski pistes and at 3,400 metres high offers the best skiing in Spain. It is ideal to tie a few days skiing with a trip with the Alhambra Palace in Granada.

A five minute drive away is San Pedro, a typical Spanish town with unspoilt beach, lovely palm lined promenade with a variety of restaurants and a weekly market.

For the younger ones there is Selwo Nature and Adventure Park, two Aqua Parks and a Theme Park, all close by. Ronda is a 20 minute drive with its Ancient Bull Ring, Arab Baths and breath-taking gorge while Gibraltar can be reached in only 45 minutes.

Within 2 1/2 hours you can enjoy excellent snow skiing at Sierra Nevada or visit Cordoba, Seville, Morocco or Granada on a comfortable day trip. Sailing, walking, horse riding, cycling and all water sports are also available close by. This location will not fail to impress even those with the most discerning tastes, please book early to avoid disappointment!
