The Andalucia region
La Herradura is an andalusian village in a sheltered bay in the Spanish Costa Tropical wich still keeps its character despite tourism.
Limits with Malaga province (Costa del Sol) only for 8 kilometres. This bay is limited by La Punta de la Mona and Cerro Gordo, forming an unique viewpoint westbound by the coast to Maro (Málaga). A landscape with superb cliffs, clear water retired beaches and mediterranean pinewoods. Cerro Gordo is also a natural special protected area where you can see a sort of mediterranean and rare plant species clear water retired small beaches.
The tropical micro climate can be noticed by the number of palms, exotic gardens and fruit trees in the area such as mangos, avocados, sugar cane, banana trees…this kind of climate is produced by a lucky combination of south orientation of the coast, the nearness of the sea and the chains of mountains "sierras" which protect this coast from any northern influence.
This region has been colonized for every mediterranean people along the history, as you´ll be explained when you visit Almuñécar.
Main town in the Area : Almuñécar (5 km.) with shops, bars, restaurants, aquatic park, exotic birds and plants park, popular street Market (Friday), superb arabic fortress in the top of the town, roman and fenician ruins…
Don´t miss: Salobreña, Marina del Este, Nerja (and Nerja caves), Frigiliana and Axarquía villages, Las Alpujarras, Los Guajares, and of course the incomparable city of Granada.
There is a daily market and every kind of shops in La Herradura village.
La Herradura beach is a very popular between many european families due to his natural shelter character and his clear and safe waters, so its very suitable if you have children. They can snorkel very safely a few meters from the beach line.
All kind of water sports available in La Herradura. Famous scuba diving location with two diving schools. Lots of restaurants, bars and typical beachfront bar-restaurants where to enjoy the typical Spanish “tapas”. Spanish style fried fish is the most typical food but also you´ll find in a number of restaurants cooking from inner Málaga and Granada province (like Las Alpujarras or Axarquía).
Golf: "Los Moriscos" in Motril, at 25 km . and "Baviera Golf" in Caleta de Vélez at 30 km.
Horse riding available in La Herradura.

"A nice and guiet and very beautiful place."
We spent a month in the house, and all we needed was there. It situated in quiet and beautiful surroundings. A bit from beach and town so a car is necessesary.
The public swimmingpool is very fine and the peolple there are very kind.
The two terraces give many oppotunities for sitting outside in the sun or in the shadow.
We did a lot of fishing and sailing in kajak which can be rented on the beach for a very reasonably amount of money.
The common garden around the houses in Los Girasoles is very beautiful with big palm trees and flowers and squirrels.
There a lots of possibilities for good outings and the view from the nearby Cerro Gordo is very beutiful. The coastway to Nerja is also very beautilful. Nerja is a fine city and the caves in Nerja are fantastic and really with seeing. So is the little town Frigiliana and the larger town Almuñecar, where there is a big market every Friday. The road to Malaga is fine and it is only 65 km from the airport. Malaga is very fine too, the harbour is very fine with the promenade, the coffeshops and the fine shops.
Dear I and H.
We are honored you´ve enjoyed so much in La Herradura. Our favorite place. It would be a pleasure to have you again in our property. Our best regards. Antonio y familia.

"Peaceful, stress free holiday location."
Just spent a wonderful month at this property. The early morning sound of the dawn chorus was quite superb - the whole house vibrated to the singing of the birds in the surrounding trees, it was completely astounding. A very well equipped house set in beautiful gardens, very easy parking in the private road to front of house, all located in a very quiet area on the hillside above La Herradura. Ideal location for a restful break!
Thanks a lot for your kind comments. It will be a pleasure to have you again in our property. The best wishes from all my family. Antonio.

"We come back!"
We stayed 4 weeks in this beautiful house in the autumn of 2012 and it was a very good choice, even the weather was perfect. The house itself is comfortable and well equiped and certainly the two terraces is a great benefit. We had breakfast in the sun on the north terrace and our appetizer and dinner on the south one. The house is located in park Las Palomas, a tranquil setting with lovely gardens. La Herradura is a nice quiet village.
Shopping is no problem, there are some supermarkets and Almunecar is only
5 km away with a nice fridaymarket. The contact with the owner was also very positive and pleasant. In a word: we enjoyed our staying very much and come back again for sure.

"We would stay there again"
A lovely townhouse, well equipped, set in lovely grounds, and with a view to the sea. We were there in winter, and there were oranges hanging right outside our front door. The open log fire worked very well (we bought logs from a local garden centre). We had breakfast on the terrace every morning. The manager in charge of the property was very attentive, and the owner is also very nice.
Food shopping in La Herradura market is good (once a week) and Almunecar has a daily market, great bars and restaurants.
You can play tennis, and swim in the shared pool (closed in the winter months). You need a car, not expensive if you hire in advance at Malaga airport.
We drove all over the area, and spent a wonderful day in Granada. There is good out of town shopping in Malaga, and all along the coast.
