From the owner

This special villa apartment sleeping 4 people has all of the advantages of renting your own holiday villa but without the high costs!

Located in a self-contained position within the grounds of our typical Spanish holiday villa in El Faro and less than a 5 minute walk along a pretty country path to the beach and a variety of excellent restaurants, this apartment is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Costa del Sol but is still surprisingly close to the main tourist towns of Fuengirola. La Cala and Marbella which are all just a short drive or bus ride away, making it a destination that is ideal for both memorable holidays and long winter breaks.

El Faro is best known locally for its iconic lighthouse and the soft golden sands of the beach are broken here and there with rock pools that draw children of all nationalities with nets and buckets and the desire to catch the biggest crab possible, making it an excellent option for lazy days in the sun. In the evenings there is a large choice of restaurants within walking distance, from those serving international cuisine, cocktails and nightlife, in a white, sophisticated atmosphere to traditional chiringuito’s on the beach where the menu is shorts, flip flops and fresh paella. Entertainment for the energetic is as varied, from water parks and sports to shopping for handbags in the local market or watching flamenco dancing in La Cala square.

The apartment is fully equipped with all the comforts of a home from home including full air conditioning/heating and unlimited fibre optic internet access with full British television including catch-up, all at no extra charge. The apartment is licensed by the Junta de Andalucía for holiday rentals under reference VFT/MA/02129 therefore meeting all of the legal requirements under current legislation in Spain and has won Certificates of Excellence in both 2017 and 2018.
