If you're a keen fisherman, then a week by the river may well be your dream holiday. These holiday homes have all been selected with fishing in mind - private lakes, unlimited fishing, boats, licences and angling tuition are among the attractions.
And if some of your party aren't that keen on fishing, then there's no need to worry. With beautiful countryside and beaches, thriving towns and plenty of home comforts, there's something to make everyone fall hook, line and sinker for these properties.

Thank you for the review. It seems that the previous people previous had eaten in the bed and left a mark on the bed cover. It was washed and a residue mark was left. She did not see it until she went to place it and did not have a spare. We have now bought a new one. I have asked her not to place stained linen again.
It is 20 minutes from Calla Mijas which is the way you chose to drive to the apartment (through Ojen). It is 7 minutes to Elviria. To be exact on my Moto I leave the apartment and 7 minutes later I am down the hill to Elviria, 5 minutes later I am in Marbella and 5 minutes later again I am parked at La Sala for brunch on Sundays.
They were also very upset that from the Tennis, swimming, paddle board, sauna, golf and all the other things that was used it seems that the main Spa was shut down as an employee was ill for health reasons. They were very upset at that. Seeing that I pay 60 euro for cleaning and that you had the use of all those facilities I still believe that you had good value for money for the 30 euro I received. am sure that it costs at least that just to hire a tennis court for an hour.
