There are 2 bathrooms, large living, kitchen/ dining room. It sleeps 6/7 people in comfort (+ a baby or toddler up to 3 yrs). All rooms are well-lit with windows and blinds or shutters. There are two roof terraces - on the 3rd floor the large terrace has panoramic views of the town, castle walls, or out towards the sea and hillsides. Enjoy breakfast, sunbathing, a glass of wine or dinner outside.

A cool entrance hallway opens onto the ground floor, where you will find the bedrooms (this makes them cooler and darker for sleeping). The two main double bedrooms have king-sized beds, with new firm mattresses, double wardrobes with long mirrors, bedside cabinets/tables and lamps. These bedrooms overlook the tiny street and have two windows each, with shutters, external blinds and bars, so you can leave windows open quite safely. Adjacent are the two bathrooms, which are internal. One has a walk-in shower and the other has a small bathtub, with shower over the bath. Both have washbasins and toilets, bathroom cabinets, plug for razors/ toothbrushes and extractor fans. Beyond the bathrooms are two smaller rooms. One has twin-beds, with new firm mattresses, a bedside cupboard, hanging alcove, and lamp. The other has the travel cot, a high chair, foldaway single bed, and our own built-in storage cupboard. These two rooms at the back of the house enjoy skylights, that can be opened or closed, and are shaded by tailor-made blinds.

The black granite staircase leads up to the first floor, where you see the door that takes you out to the lower and upper terraces. First, go into the beautiful large living+ kitchen/dining room. This room has two windows that open onto the street with shutters and exterior blinds, so they can be left open for ventilation. The living area has a large, grey 3-seater sofa, 3 reclining chairs and one fold-up chair for extra seating. A solid wooden coffee table, small bookcase (with a few books available) and a TV bench. The new 32” Samsung TV, has Spanish digital (Freeview) channels and will play any UK or US programmes in English. Google ChromeCast is attached to the TV and you can access live TV or films from your own remote appliances. We use FilmOn for UK TV and Netflix. There is a dvd player below, with a choice of UK dvds available. The house has Wifi freely available with your rental. It works well, with decent speed.

The dining table seats six, with 6 matching chairs, and it can be extended to seat 8. The lovely new fitted white kitchen has ample cupboards and black marble worktops, which might inspire you to try some Spanish cooking. It's fully equipped with oven, 3 ring ceramic electric hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge with freezer compartment, sink, drainer, toaster and kettle. The crockery, cutlery, glasses, and cooking pans are all our own, quite an eclectic mix with everything you need to enjoy some fine dining – if you can keep away from the tapas bars and local restaurants! An iron, ironing board, cleaner vacuum and five floor fans are available. For winter rentals there is an electric radiator and a pellet stove in the living room, which really heats up the large space on those chilly winter evenings.

The door to the terraces has a stable window that can be left open as there are bars. On the lower terrace, there is a sink, outside lights and space to dry clothes, towels and swimsuits on the portable dryer. There is a suite of rattan furniture and a storage box for the cushions, which provides a more shady place to sit outside.

Up the metal staircase, there is the expansive upper terrace, with a picnic table and 6 chairs, 4 sun loungers with cushions, and two large parasols to protect you from the sun. The views are spectacular and the atmosphere totally relaxing. There are lights and switches up on the top terrace.

PLEASE NOTE: The property is managed by Sara & Louis, who live locally and have years of experience managing holiday rentals. They will be in touch with you directly before your stay and on departure.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

The house is nestled among the narrow, winding streets, typical of the 'barrio San Miguel', some are cobbled in beautiful mosaics. The area surrounding the impressive Castillo de San Miguel, an ancient Moorish castle with its own fascinating museum and the nearby Archaeological Museum, is hilly and difficult for vehicle access. Close by is the Parque el Majuelo, botanical gardens, with one of Europe's largest subtropical plant collections. The Loro Sexi, ornithological park, has over 120 different species of birds to view – you can tell by the infinite variety of bird song!

Just a 5 minute walk is the Plaza Constitucion (Town Hall Square) with delightful cafes, tapas bars and restaurants, as well as a chemist and, leading off the square, a myriad of tiny streets where there is a fantastic mix of clothes shops and boutiques, bodegas, bakeries, small vegetable and grocery shops. Continue walking and you come down to the beaches (5 – 10 minute walk) – Playa Puerta Del Mar and Playa San Cristobal. Both beaches have long promenades that have been well laid-out, with palm trees and tiled boardwalks. There are exercise areas on the beach, showers and toilets available. You can rent sun loungers from the local bars by the hour or day. You're never far from local cafes, restaurants (good value 'menu of the day'), even bars and nightclubs open into the early hours of morning.

Other local attractions
Just a few minutes' walk from the house, before you reach the Town Hall Square, is La Corrala bar and gourmet restaurant with excellent food and a varied menu. Every Wednesday, there is a Flamenco show which is a fun and entertaining way to spend an evening. Flamenco is offered in many of the local restaurants and sometimes you get an outside show in the squares.

There are numerous local festivals and fiestas at all times during the year, which create a wonderful carnival atmosphere. The weather in Almunecar (Costa Tropical) is noted for being warm and sunny, with long hot summers and, though it has to rain sometimes, even winter months can be hospitable and pleasant to sit outside. The average temperature is 20C.

The colourful covered Municipal Market is packed with stalls selling fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit. Every Friday, there is an outdoor market in the town's main car park and on Sundays a second-hand or flea market in the same place.
A very large Aquarium is in the centre of town. Also, for children, an Aqua Park (20 minutes' walk) on the beach towards Playa Velilla, has water rides, pools, bars and restaurants, so the family can enjoy a whole day out.

Access and parking
The Castle area is notable for its lack of vehicle access. The streets are narrow, winding and hilly, so it's not a suitable place for the disabled or infirm. Our house can be reached by car but there is no immediate parking. For drop-off of luggage or shopping, it's best to stop at the top of an adjacent street, transport everything into the house, then take the car away to park.

Street parking is available within walking distance, either by meters on local streets (with a free period in the middle of the day) Out of high season, you only need to pay from 9am-2pm, the rest of the day is free. There is also the main car park (free except for Friday), or the large underground car park on Paseo de Atillo with paid-for parking which can be by the day or for longer periods. Full instructions will be supplied on booking.

You don't need a car, but can take the long distance bus from Malaga bus station. Take a shuttle bus from the airport into Malaga, or taxi, then pick up a bus that goes to Almunecar (regular departures). You'll get plenty of exercise by walking around the town and there really is no need to drive, as everywhere is a 5 – 15 minute walk.

Almunecar

Exploring the area

Inland from Almunecar lies the Alpujarra National Park, where you can tour the pretty white villages, and visit the famous centre of water source Lanjaron. Granada, the city and home of the world-famous Alhambra Palace, is just a 50 minute drive along a new motorway. Try to book your visit to the Alhambra online in advance, as it gets very busy in the high season, but well worth the visit.

Golf courses. Horse riding. Skiing in the Sierra Nevada, are also nearby. Almunecar coastal waters offer great water sports and scuba diving is very popular.

La Herradura and Salobrena are typical unspoilt bays and there is an exclusive 500 berth marina at Marina del Este. Nerja is a pretty village along the coast, famous for its spectacular stalactite caves. For the adventurous, try a trip up into the hills to the Pena Escrita Nature Park. It's a tortuous, winding steep climb – not for the nervous driver! Once up there, you'll be thrilled by the wildlife zoo where the animals live happily in nature. The views are incredible.

“Lovely house in a lovely town”

Reviewed 20 May 2015

A beautiful, well equipped house with all modern amenities. The owner and the property managers were very helpful, both before the trip and during our stay. Location is best possible for those who love to explore Almuñecar and its surroundings by foot or by using local buses - and you get a lot of exercise when walking up the steep streets. We really enjoyed our two-week stay as tourists but at the same time living in the middle of Spanish "everyday life".

I'm so pleased your holiday went well. You seem to have made the best out of staying in the house, the Castle district, and also of everything Almunecar and its surroundings has to offer. It's a great town and you get plenty of exercise too!
