The Costa del Sol region
The Costa del Sol is one of Europe's most popular year-round holiday spots, stretching for 160 kilometres to the east and west of Malaga on the south coast of Spain and providing miles of magnificent beaches.
The coastline here is sheltered by hills and high mountains allowing for a kind of micro climate. This limits rainfall, and as a result the region enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is at its hottest during the summer months, with temperatures rarely falling below 30°C (86°F). The typically very mild winters, boast daily highs of around 20°C (64°F) and at night the low rarely falls below 10°C.
Malaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol and the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. It's Spain's second largest port and has a cosmopolitan flavour along with much traditional Andalucian charm amid its maze of medieval streets.
A supermarket (superb fresh fish counter), WiFi bistro with Sky Sport, restaurants, medical centre and chemist are just some of the facilities in the immediate vicinity of the complex, whilst even more restaurants, bistros and bars can be found a short 5 minutes walk from the apartment. You can easily go out for a meal or a drink and forget about the car.
It is a 15 minutes walk or short bus ride (bus stop close by) to Puerto Banus. Here you can experience the bustle of the marina and a wonderful selection of exclusive designer shops and larger stores. Puerto Banus, is home to some of the finest shops and restaurants in Spain and offers miles of blue flag beaches with views towards Africa and Gibraltar.
Puerto Banus is linked to the centre of Marbella not only by road, but by a car free promenade and a water-taxi. It takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete this peaceful, coastal walk or half an hour on the boat.
One of the best and largest markets on the Costa Del Sol is the street market at the Bull Ring only 5 minutes away from the apartment - every Saturday 9.00 - 2.00.
El Corte Ingles is a very large department store situated near to the port. This offers a full shopping experience with all the big brands represented. There are several places to eat / drink within the store.
Puerto Banus's relaxed friendly atmosphere can provide everything for a holiday stay and makes it an excellent choice for families and couples with something for everyone in this area of the Costa del Sol.
The Costa del Sol is also known as the 'Costa del Golf' due to the numerous golf courses in the area. Casa Carla is located in the Golf Valley, which means you are within 10 minutes drive of 5 courses - Las Brisas, Los Naranjos, La Quinta, Aloha, and La Dama de Noche - and within 30 minutes drive from at least 12 other courses.
The historic town of Ronda and the delightful White Villages are close by. The cultural centres of Seville, Cardoba and Granada are also possible places to visit. You can go on a day trip to Morocco or Tangiers from Algeciras and Tarifa or visit the apes on the rock of Gibraltar. There are many marked walks in the Andalucian mountains for those who like to explore on foot. Spain's vias verdes (greenways) are one of Andalucia's lesser known rural attractions and a great way to discover the countryside off the, sometimes well-beaten track. In the winter months you can ski on the Sierra Nevada mountain range - about two and a half hours drive - snow and sun in one day!
If you are holidaying with children - you are well catered for. There are aquaparks in Fuengirola (which also has an excellent zoo) and at Torremolinos. Near to the water park in Torremolinos, is a Crocodile Park. The Selwo Wildlife Adventure Park is well worth a visit, where you will find over 2000 animals from every continent living in semi-free conditions on the one million square metre site! Tivoli World, in Benalmadena, is a theme park with the usual rides, attractions and restaurants. For those who like their sports, there are tennis and golf activities - check with local press. Don't forget the blue flag beaches of Puerto Banus and Marbella! Multi cinemaplexes at Puerto Banus and Marbella - as well as American bowling. Of course, you may prefer to stay in the complex and let the family enjoy splashing around in one of the pools! Kid's morning sports club 5 mins walk away - variety of activities over a week with a weekly "award" ceremony. My nephews love it! (And so do their parents, as they get some time to themselves!!)
And if you prefer getting away from it all (as we do!) there are miles and miles of marked walks through the national park behind the Cost del Sol. The wildlife and flora that can be seen is just fabulous - we have a variety of guide books. Please use them - you'll be amazed at the "other side" of the Costa del Sol.
