The Andalucia region
The Costa Tropical offers a great and unique micro climate with over 300 days of sun and blue skies annually recorded. This area boasts some of the most spectacular coastlines in Spain, award winning blue flag beaches, several of the most historically important sites in Europe (The Alhambra Palace in Granada city), and plenty of destinations for a thoroughly exciting and enjoyable holiday. Here is a great base from which to explore the area, taking in some of the nearby towns and villages, rolling countryside and high mountains, lakes and seashore, and to get a feel for the real Andalucia. And then in the evening, a short walk from the villa, why not stroll along the port at the Marina to see the elegant private yachts or dine in one of the many portside restaurants.
The region of Andalucia is a land of dramatic extremes - a richly varied area with a Mediterranean climate providing mild winters and dry, hot summers, and with snow on the mountains of the Sierra Nevada ski resort in the winter months it is difficult to forget there can be such dramatic ranges in temperature within such short geographical distances. Andalucía has a rich artistic and cultural past only more recently being explored and appraised. With remains evident from pre-history, through the Visigothic and Byzantine periods, and of course the Islamic period, which have left us with some beautiful monuments. The Renaissance produced the cathedrals in Granada and Málaga, as well as Seville's City Hall. Mudejar art, a blending of Christian and Arab elements, dominates the Alcazar in Seville. Countless buildings survive from the baroque period of the 17th and 18th centuries, while the Romanticism of the 19th century continued into the 20th century. Even on the Costa Tropical or inland from the coast you will discover many traces of these different styles still, just explore and you will see.
The Costa Tropical of Granada province not only offers great beaches and glorious weather but with new and expanding motorway connections, the development of the AVE high speed train connections linking Andalusian towns with Madrid, and with the increased air travel opportunities out of Granada and Malaga – then it is an area that is proving to be an attractive location.
The old fishing village and seaside resort of La Herradura, is just 5 minutes driving from Almuñecar town which lies at the apex of the Costa Tropical and is composed of a municipal authority that includes, the leisure port of Marina del Este and the prestigious residential areas of Cotobro, Punta de la Mona and El Nogal on Cerro Gordo.
La Herradura has continued to develop its own independent social style and offers a bespoke, newly built, civic centre, a new indoor sports arena, as well as an 18th century battalion fortress, a daily municipal market, various diving schools and a vibrant mix of restaurants all to accommodate the many interests of today's visitor. Since 1985, La Herradura is more famously the home to the acclaimed International Guitar Competition - homage to Andrés Segovia, an adopted son of the community, who demanded that the contest bearing his name demand only the highest standards from its entrants.
The coastal town of Almunecar boasts ruins from the Roman and Moorish periods. The Castle de San Miguel, still surrounded by the original village homes, sits on the headland that bisects two of the local beaches. The castle becomes the backdrop for a spectacular fireworks display on August 15 and which can be seen from the terrace of the villa. The local archaeological museum, in the Cueva de los Siete Palacios, may have been a water reservoir at one time, and houses mainly local exhibits including a 17th century BC Egyptian vase which is inscribed with the oldest written text ever found on the Iberian peninsula.
Traditionally a fashionable tranquil Spanish holiday resort since the early 20th century, the area has always been a quiet retreat for Europe's International jet set. Even today there are still plenty of places to relax, to dine or for the more active, to explore.

"fantastic holidays on the Costa Tropical"
Very nice accomodation at a very good rate. The house have fantastic views to the sea and its very well decorated and clean. There is plenty of space for a full family and all amenities close by. We enjoy it and booked it again already for this summer. The kids enjoyed it.
It was a shame to go back in Madrid at the end of our holidays...
