The Costa del Sol region
Spain's 'sunshine coast' is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations. With an average of 320 days of blue sky annually, it is perfect as a summer holiday or as a winter destination for golfers, walkers and those wishing to pursue out -door activities. Families are particularly well catered for, with myriad attractions, restaurants and of course miles of beaches.
Children are not just tolerated but welcomed by the friendly Spanish people. Despite the march of development, the area still has the ambience of Andalucía, the most 'Spanish' of all regions and you do not have to venture far from your holiday home to encounter local ferias, fiestas and romerias - the scent of Jasmine is in the air, inexpensive wine is flowing freely- come and enjoy!
This stunning Villa is located just 15 minutes’ drive from the beach, on the foothills of the beautiful Ronda mountains . Quiet and peaceful, El Madronal is near the beautiful village of Benhavis with it's many fantastic restaurants to enjoy on summers evening. Or for lovers of the country side it is a short drive to the Refugio de Juanar, a rustic country house set in a National Reserve specialising in game not found on the coast such as marinated partridge, venison, quail and even mountain goat. Walking trails are well marked and it is well worth the walk to the Mirador that looks as far as Africa on a clear day.
Beach lovers are well catered for locally with beaches to suit every one, from families to beach babes and also beach bars and restaurants from 'bare foot' chiringuitos to exclusive beach clubs .Only 15 minutes from the glamorous resort of Puerto Banus, Estepona and Marbella, the Villa has easy access to all amenities.
San Pedro has a long seafront promenade, perfect for those sunset strolls or winter walks. It has a wide sandy beach and children's play areas.
Estepona has a promenade and a fishing port where you can watch local fishermen unloading their catch from their colourful boats, but you will have to be up early for the fish auction! The pretty main square has numerous cafes and restaurants amid remnants of old castle walls and traditional whitewashed buildings with their balconies of scented flowers. There is a good mix of shops and the area is particularly popular with families and well heeled British retirees.
There are many children's activities locally and within 30-40 mins drive. Fuengirola Zoo, the most modern in Spain is excellent and well worth a visit, also Tivoli World theme Park. Selwo Park, a safari style park is nearby. There are also Water parks and all types of sports, horse riding etc.
