The Andalucia region
Andalucia is gifted with one of the best climates in the northern hemisphere with at least 300 days of sunshine most years. Whilst it is hot it is rarely stifling due to the sea breeze .Whilst it can't be guaranteed, it is not unusual to see sunbathers in January. It is a unique region of Spain with contrasting scenery from large lakes, millions of acres of olives groves, oranges and other citrus fruits, wide beaches, high mountains and Europe's only desert. Famous, not only for Flamenco, but also its wines and local gastronomy. It is a region steeped in ancient heritage apparent in both its architecture and landscape. Arabs, Moors and Christians have left their influence.
Home to Picasso, it is one of the most pained regions in the world due to it's breathtaking countryside immortalised in books by Welles and Hemmingway.
It is a Paradise for relaxing, walking, golfing, swimming, diving, painting, bird watching................
Los Boliches is a bustling coastal town between Fuengirola and Benalmadena.
Whilst retaining it's Spanish feel, it is a haven of international restaurants, cafes and bars.
The beaches are very wide and Blue Flag with an abundance of chiringuitos offering sun beds, parasols and refreshments from ice-creams to a full meals.
Shops include local traders to large supermarkets and Places of Worship for all denominations can be found.
Frequent bus, train and coaches serve all surrounding areas for those who wish to explore.
There is a local travel agent who can book day trips to Gibraltar, Ronda, Granada and even across the Straits to Morocco.

"Absolutely brilliant week! Definitely going back!"
I went with a friend and another Family of 4. The Property is so easy to access from the airport, a quick train ride from the airport and then a two minute walk to the property from the train station.
When we arrived Karla was extremely friendly showing us around the property and pointing out all the places to visit on our week there. The property was incredible, so close to the beach and really well equipped. Beds were extremely comfy, really well equipped kitchen, couldn't think of anything else that could be added to the property to make it any better.
We spent a lot of the time by the pool, having a 2 metre deep private pool was really good fun. The amount of local places to eat out was great as well with a massive variety of food.
The group we went with included a disabled child and we found the property well equipped for this, there is lift access and also the fact everything was so close to get to was great.
Would really recommend anyone who wants to enjoy the Spanish sun to head to this property, we had a great week and hopefully will be returning as soon as we get chance.
