Caserio de Calahonda is a relatively small gated community of 47 apartments in 3 blocks. Situated in the sought after area of Jardines de Calahonda, adjacent to natural parkland, the atmosphere here is distinctly Spanish, with Moorish inspired architecture, pretty gardens, a tranquil courtyard and the scent of blossom in the air.
This large luxuriously appointed ground floor apartment enjoys direct access from its spacious private terrace to a delightful pool. Offering peace of mind to families with young children, the pool is fenced and gated, and of particular benefit to guests with restricted mobility it can be accessed via a non-slip ramp. Additionally, there is no need to negotiate any stairs when entering the apartment via this poolside terrace.
Indoors, the king sized master bedroom leads to a full ensuite bathroom and the double and twin rooms share a shower room with walk in over-sized shower. All bedrooms have mirror fronted wardrobes with plenty of hanging space. A bassinet is available (on request) for infants and there is also a highchair, (both complimentary). Docking stations are provided in all bedrooms and there is a television in the living room, (IPTV with 60+ UK, Irish and Scandinavian channels), together with DVD player and entertainment centre. A selection of DVDs and CDs is on hand, as well as a choice of books and games. There is also a community library where you can browse through the large selection of books or borrow a DVD. There is a safe in the master bedroom and wi-fi is available at no extra charge. There is air conditioning/heating throughout. The fully fitted kitchen offers all mod cons and leads to the rear utility terrace, housing a washing machine.
In this wonderful climate al fresco dining is the norm and the terrace dining table will comfortably accommodate 6 people. There is a further suite where you can relax on the terrace with a pot of coffee or jug of sangria or you may prefer to lie back on a lounger and soak up the sun, (beach towels supplied). The terrace is partly covered and at any time of day offers a choice of sun or shade.
This is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing pool or beach holiday but due to its location mid way between Fuengirola and Marbella, Calahonda is also a perfect base for sightseeing and for visiting many wonderful locations in Andalucia and Southern Spain. The Costa del Sol is a great choice for golf enthusiasts and the nearest courses are just minutes away from the apartment. From autumn right through to April visitors can even combine sun and snow as the ski slopes of Sierra Nevada are only two hours away. The apartment is a great choice for those who choose not to hire a car as all local amenities are within walking distance, public transport is cheap and reliable and bus stops for Marbella and Fuengirola are within easy reach.

Perfect for a holiday at any time, the Costa del Sol is famous for its wonderful year round climate, with the temperature rarely falling below 60º F in winter and a year round average temperature of 75º F. Whilst this is a great location for a beach or golf holiday, there are numerous other attractions and activities to suit all ages. For a taste of the real Spain a short drive inland will take you to the ‘white villages’ of Ojen, Istan and Mijas and on a day trip slightly further afield you could discover Ronda, Nerja, Seville, Jerez, Cadiz, Granada or Gibraltar.
The area is served by Malaga airport, which is about 30 minutes drive from Calahonda. The main road is an excellent dual carriageway. Calahonda is approximately 14 Kilometres from Fuengirola and 16 Kilometres from Marbella and although a car would be useful it is not essential to hire one as buses run every half hour to these towns, and are cheap and reliable. The local beach is a pleasant 10 minute stroll. Calahonda has numerous restaurants, bars and supermarkets and there are many attractions for all the family, including water parks, theme parks, riding stables, zoos, golf and water sports, all within a short drive.
