As senior citizens and with my wife, family and friends, we have stayed in Casa Victor many times, usually late September through to the end of November. Never been disapointed. Fuengerola is a short car journey away from this quiet oasis, and is what I would call a town that never closes. Any time of the year what ever you want can be found. Equally the location is ideally based for those who want to tour to some great historic Spanish locations. Granada, Cordoba, Saville are all within easy reach by car or rail. Likewise, if you venture inland to some of the National Parks you will be surprised by the great scenery. Hiring a car through Maria will enhance your stay greatly, enabling you to find those off the beaten roads, where you pull into the village local for lunch to enjoy good food and wine.(Even if like us, you cannot speak Spanish). Yes, there are the more famous resorts on the coast, but inland can be found many a gem.
At the end of a wonderful day you return to a comfortable base to relax and watch UK tv with a bottle of good Spanish red wine, perfect.
