The Costa del Sol region
The beauty of this most southerly region of Europe, is the year round temperature that is rarely if ever, too cold and rarely too hot in the summer to be able to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery and places to visit.
This area of the western Costa Del Sol, located in the historic region of Andalucia, is full of interesting towns and villages, both on the coast and inland and is easily accessible by car. Most notable inland are Seville,(About 3 hrs drive) which has the most stunning of buildings, as well as being the home of Flamenco, Bull fighting and the yearly orange blossom pageant. Cordoba (About 2.5 hrs drive)with it's beautiful "Mesquita" which was originally a huge Moorish mosque, and later after the re-conquista,built over and onto by an equally amazing Catholic church, but still retaining the amazing original Moorish internal architechture. Granada,(Also about 2.5 hrs drive)is the ancient Moorish capital of the region. and home to the incredibly well preserved Alhambra Palace.
In the winter months, between November and April, there is a superb ski resort very close to Granada, in the famous Sierra Nevada mountains. It is possible to go for a day's skiing and still be back in the apartment for evening drinks. Along the coast eastwards, is Malaga, where there are numerous historic sites to visit, as well as museums and art galleries. Westwards, (about 1 hr drive)there is historic Gibraltar, the long disputed territory between the United Kingdom and Spain. In between all of these locations are numerous interesting and attractive villages and small towns, some located on the coast, others in the mountain ranges that surround the region. Most notable of these is Benahavis, only about 20 minutes by car. It is not only a lovely location but there are several world class restaurants within the village. Also Rhonda, one of Spain's oldest and loveliest towns, with it's breathtaking views over a 350ft deep gorge. Very close to Los Naranjos is also the beautiful small white village of Istan. This lies literally 15 minutes by car in the mountains behind our apartment's location and is well worth a visit.
But of course, if your interests include golfing, then you have so much choice in this area, with many top class and truly world standard golf courses, all within 5 minutes to 10 minutes drive.
Other places to visit are of course, the famous port of Puerto Banus, which has numerous shops, boutiques and every other type of retail outlet to interest the most avid shopper, whether for clothes from shops such as Dolce& Cabbana or shoes from Jimmy Choo, or oriental antiques and jewellery.
The bars and restaurants in the port are some of the best to be found anywhere on the Costa Del Sol.The Yachts moored here are quite staggering in size,with some of the largest belonging to the Saudi royal family, as well as the Russian owners of some well known football clubs and international companies. The most pleasant beaches are also to be found in the region of the port, so it is easy to walk from the apartment to the beach, (25 minutes)enjoy a swim, sunbathe and then visit one of the bars or restaurants, before taking a gentle walk back to the apartment.
Or if you prefer, take a pleasant stroll along the long promenades towards Marbella or San Pedro de Alcantara, where you will have numerous opportunities to stop and take a drink or snack in one of the many small bars along the way.
A short drive, or taxi ride takes you into Marbella, where you will find a huge number of shops and restaurants, catering for every taste and budget, with typical "Menu Del Dia" menus, supplying a lunch menu for as little as 8 euros! Our favourite place to visit is the ancient heart of the old town, "Plaza Los Naranjos" (Orange Square) which has little cobbled streets and interesting shops, as well as some really lovely outside restaurants and bars. This really is a small gem of a location where it is easy to while away your time shopping or eating, or just sitting with a cool drink, smelling the scent of the orange blossom, and "people watching"!
