Description from owner
Bright & airy 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom FULLY MODERNISED apartment in the historic old town of Gibraltar located within the centuries old city walls; overlooked by Gibraltar's medieval castle complete with its Tower of Homage, Inner Keep and Quasbah!
The central location ensures you are a stone's throw away from the busy Main Street, an 800 meter long parade of duty free shopping ending at the 'Casemates' square and it's vibrant café bars and restaurants now housed in what many year ago used to be the old military barracks and ammunition store.
Free fast Wifi connection and Satellite TV available.
Free parking available on Queensway, seven minute walk away.
Free Beach towels provided for Summer rentals (please request).
N.B. this apartment is not suitable for children under 4 years old.
N.B. Property is not a B & B, self catering only
Town of Gibraltar
Immediately outside Gavinos Passage is Cornwalls Centre with Cheers Café for breakfast, coffees & lunch and a Mediterranean Restaurant inside the archways. Both offer sit in or alfresco. In addition we have a brand new Paparazzi's restaurant 20 paces from the apartment. There are two fruit and vegetable shops within a few meters, an Indian and two other takeaways, three convenience stores plus a Thai and Chinese takeaway around the corner. During the day our little corner of Old Gibraltar is very busy and has a definite buzz. We love it and is one of the factors that inspired us to get visitors to stay somewhere other than the usual places.
At night it's usually very quiet with the odd scooter buzzing through Cornwalls or Engineers Lane and most places in our immediate area are shut by 6:00 PM except for the takeaways and restaurants so bear that in mind if you expect to purchase a few items. The larger supermarket Morrisons, is 10 minutes walk from the apartment and is open until 10:00.
Main Street is a few paces away with plenty to keep shoppers happy. Make sure you walk up and down the entire length at least once to take in the wide range of UK and European shops and brands available. If you're buying anything electronic, do your research on pricing and then haggle! Make sure you get your 10% off any perfumes which is standard!
Irish town runs parallel to Main Street although is not as long and has its own unique character. It's full of all the other shops and services you would expect to find in a town and are not in Main Street. The proprietors are not prepared to pay Main Street rents and this is reflected in the type of businesses you'll find there. It is also where two of our favourite places can be found, Sacarellos for Breakfast, Coffee & lunch and Café Rojo for dinner. Café Rojo you almost certainly have to book in advance!
