Penthouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Penthouse apartment in a private and secure development in Playa Serena, Roquetas de Mar. Apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, air con and fans in all bedrooms and living area, and satellite TV (Spanish TV and the usual English channels to keep up with the Soaps).
The apartment has a large sunny terrace with dining table, chairs, sun loungers and parasols. In addition, there is also a much larger private rooftop terrace accessible only from the apartment - it is fenced off for privacy and contains a dining table and chairs, an outdoor suite of furniture, sun loungers, small private pool and pool shower and a pergola with cover for shade from the hot midday sun. Dine, relax, read and sip wine in the shade or sun bathe in the full sun while the kids play in the private pool right beside you on the rooftop terrace.
There is also a large communal pool in the grounds of the apartment and beautiful gardens with sun loungers and parasols.
A short 10 to 15 min stroll takes you to fabulous beaches and bars, restaurants and shops. The entire Playa Serena area of Roquetas de Mar is flat for relaxed strolling. Bus stops located opposite the apartment provide opportunities to travel further afield to many different cities, towns and villages in the region.
The Playa Serena golf course reception & restaurant is a short 5 minute walk away. Another 5 minutes takes you to the start of the shops, restaurants, bars and hotels - and of course the beaches that extend for many kilometres.

The Andalucia region
• Costa Almeria has a little bit of everything a visitor could want. The Sierra María-Los Vélez Nature Reserves with their castle, their caves and their rich fauna, and the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Reserve, with its deserted beaches, wild cliffs, transparent sea beds and coral reefs, bring alive a landscape which offers the traveller the magic of snow, the Mediterranean forest , the desert and the sea.
To the west are the tourist resorts of Roquetas de Mar, Almerimar and Aguadulce. Further north are Vera and Mojacar which combines beautiful beaches with the typical white Spanish mountainside village.
The entire Almeria region spoils tourists with it's real Spanish feel combined with tourist attractions like beaches, golf, water sports and shopping, none of which spoil the attraction and feel of the region.
• Almeria City is a cosmopolitan shoppers delight with markets and high end shopping malls. Here you will also find the Alcazabar, a city within a fortress built around the 12th century. Almeria City is only a short drive from Roquetas de Mar.
Roquetas de Mar
