For golfers there are 46 courses on the Costa del Sol!
320 DAYS SUNSHINE on average every year makes this apartment the perfect choice all year round.
GOLF: The apartment overlooks the Santa Maria golf course which will challenge all levels of handicap - the Club House is near the apartment. The first nine holes were designed by Antonio Garcia. There are a number of water hazards on the course which adds to its difficulty and a favourite hole is the dogleg 8th par 5 which needs a good tee shot to make it! Another favourite for the longest drive is the long par 4 and nearest to the pin is definitely the short 15th with a bird's eye view of the green from the natural terrain.
The Costa del Sol has not been nick-named the Costa del Golf without good reason - it is simply a golfers paradise with 72 golf courses in Andalucia of which 46 are on the Costa del Sol, four of which are ranked in the top 10 in Europe, one of these is the world famous Valderama course. Add to this the fantastic all year round climate and you are most definitely in golfing heaven! This concentration of quality courses with an excellent warm and sunny climate has proven to be a 'must' golfing destination for tens of thousands from all over the world every year .
SKI: Just a couple of hours from the apartment is the magnificent Sierra Nevada ski resort usually open from November to May. There are few places in the world where you can ski in the morning then head to the beach for the afternoon, but the proximity of Sierra Nevada to the Med allows this. Don't be fooled into thinking that the skiing will be second rate either. 20 lifts serve 100 km of piste and snowfall can be amongst the highest in Europe. The pistes lend themselves to the intermediate but there is ample off-piste skiing for the more advanced. For apres ski there are some good restaurants and lively bars. When you've had enough, simply head back to the sandy beaches of Elviria near the apartment!
