The Costa del Sol region
The Costa Del Sol region is renowned for its long sunny days and has magnificent beaches and mountain views. Within the immediate vicinity there are numerous excellent golf courses, water sports, horse riding, theme parks, shopping centres and restaurants, one of the best zoos in Europe, a world class marina, a casino, and stunning mountain villages. Whatever your tastes, there is something for everyone.
For the more adventurous, the historical old town of Granada and the amazing Alhambra Palace is just a few hours drive away or you can go skiing in the Sierra Nevadas. You can take a spectacular train journey to the beautiful mountain town of Ronda or visit the rock of Gibraltar, which is less than one and a half hour's drive, and see the famous Barbary Apes and pick up your duty free goods at rock bottom prices.
Fuengirola is vibrant and lively, mixed with the laid back atmosphere of the Mediterranean. There are numerous restaurants and bars to choose from, whatever your tastes, and with miles of golden sandy beaches, it is the perfect place to soak up those rays of sunshine. You can climb up to the remains of the Moorish castle of Sohail, or find somewhere to scuba dive, take a trip to find dolphins on a glass bottomed boat, or take the kids to the zoo or the water park. You can also shop in the weekly market on Tuesdays, a very popular market in the Costa del Sol.
10 minutes by car or a few stops on the train you can be in Benalmadena where you can enjoy Tivoli World - a "Disney Style" Amusement Park, take a cable car ride to the top of a mountain or go to the ultra modern Marina area to see the Sea Life Aquarium and Selwo Marina (sea life outdoor Marina).
Fuengirola caters for all tastes and ages, you will never be hard pressed to find something to do, and if you want to explore further a field, you can get a day trip to Gibraltar, Morocco, the caves in Nerja, Marbella, Malaga (Picasso Museum), Mijas, and other places of interest.

Lovely apartment, plenty of room and air con which was a must! We knew the area quite well so settled in quickly, the apartment had a fantastic view over looking the sea, easy access to the the sea, through a small tunnel under the road , the pool area was sparkling clean! There are one or two places to eat within walking distance and a small supermarket, Bus services good, bus stop across the road. The road is busy, so ear plugs may be a good idea! The caretaker was very helpful as was the owner. Weather perfect..

"First class property with first class features and services"
Arrived at property at 9pm. Collected key from on site agent so was unpacking by 9.15pm. Opened shuttered doors and windows onto a massive patio with a spectacular view over the sea and in the distance the lights of Fuengirola. The 5 rooms were spotless, large and beautifully furnished with Air-con provided plus a welcome pack with fresh supplies in the fridge. The swimming pool is outside front door and was spotless with a showering facility and most of the time we were the only users. There is a community spirit present in the area and most of the residents speak english. It is a 5 minute walk onto a sandy beach and there are restaurants, supermarket, drinking places, Chemist all within a short walking distance.

"HOME FROM HOME"
My husband and I along with another couple stayed for 2 weeks in this wonderful villa. It is really well equipment, clean and well maintained. We had almost total use of the pool area over the 2 weeks which was wonderful. The neighbour and her husband across the way gave us really good advice about the area.
We practically lived in the patio area, and I do agree with a previous reviewer that after a few days we got used to the noise from the very busy road. There is an overhead walk way and and underground access to the beach on the other side of the road.
During the whole booking procedure the owner John was brilliant - we could not have asked for anyone more helpful and accommodating.
We would no hesitation in recommending this villa - about 5 bus stops from the centre of Fuengirola and in the other direction about 3 bus stops from the lovely little town of La Calla.
We had a trip to the caves in Nerja, a trip to Granada, a trip to Gibralta and a 3 day trip to Tangier - which was a very memorable experience.

"Sea Views & More."
We have just enjoyed a lovely winter break at this villa. It is well equiped with everything you may need and it all works.
The central heating coped with the chilly, sometimes cold, winter evenings.
Our one concern had been the noise from the busy N340 but can honestly say it soon became background noise and yousoon forget it. However, this was well compensated for by its proximity to the sea. We often sat on the terrace and on occations saw the coverting dolphins in the bay.

"Great location & Facilities"
Excellent directions from airport and welcome on arrival. Access to main coast road is good for travel up & down coast. Great location & facilities in villa satified all our needs. Residents helpful. Air conditioning was much appreciatted.Background road noise pales in comparison to views from terrace & master bed every morning. I expect compromises in Spain, we had very few here.Choice of resturants close by to suit local or english tastes. Enjoyed pool to ourselves and so conveniently located in patio next to entrance to the villa.
