Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Torremolinos - Tres Torres
Sunny apartment in central Torremolinos - stunning views to the sea & mountains
Refurbished throughout and also fully re-wired, this sunny apartment boasts stunning views from its 17th storey position including mountain views to the right and town/sea views to the left. The lounge has a relaxing reclining armchair and comfortable sofa which converts easily into a double bed. New beds and mattresses are amongst many new items although some of the original Spanish furniture and flooring has been retained to keep the authenticity. The fully tiled bathroom boasts a new shower and vanity unit. A washing machine is provided. The new kitchen has all the utensils and equipment you will need and includes a portable oven and grill.
The mostly residential apartment block is 5 minutes from local shops bars and restaurants but is surprisingly quiet at night. For this reason, the apartment is suitable for the more mature guest or families with older children (because of the height) but not ideally suitable for groups of young people.
The apartment: The apartment is situated in one of the most unusual buildings in Torremolinos, if not the most unusual building. Tres Torres is as the name suggests Three Towers, and the complex was built in 1971 by Luis Alfonso Pagán. The design was influenced greatly by the Torres Blancas (White Towers) in Madrid. If you google these buildings, you will immediately be able to see the similarity between the two. Every floor is split into 5 apartments and because of the buildings unique 'round' design, each one is almost 'segment shaped'. Very different. There are 3 round lifts, round stairs, a round swimming and paddling pool, a round kitchen area (makes for very easy access to the cupboards and appliances) and before the refurbishment, the apartment even had a round bath!
Things to do and see: Torremolinos has a host of attractions and things to do to keep you entertained on your holiday. With more than 300 sunny days, this is an excellent part of the world to enjoy the many pastimes associated with the good weather - the beach, the pool, the water park, golf etc. But should you wish to see this part of Spain in more detail, there are numerous excursions available. There are trips to Cordoba, Granada and the famous Alhambra Palace, Gibraltar and the Barbary Macaques (not forgetting your purchase of cheap Duty Free goods), El Chorro lakes and mountains, Ronda and Nerja plus many other exciting places. Malaga town is worth a visit for both shopping and its historic value. The open top 'hop on hop off' tour bus is a great way to see the city The local Renfe train runs a very reliable and reasonably priced service between Fuengirola and Malaga giving you easy access to both destinations, not to mention all the other places on route. Local bus connections are also very good.
Shops, Bars and Restaurants: Torremolinos has all 3 in abundance! Almost any type of food you can imagine is available, and the restaurants range from cheap and cheerful to fine dining. Italian, French, Indian, German, English, Danish, Spanish, Moroccan, Chinese etc with many of the restaurants close to the apartment. There's even a Burger King and a 'chip shop' close by! Bars range from authentic Spanish Bodegas to large and lavish music bars with every style in between. There are bars to suit everyone. Why not have a drink at one of the many bars with outdoor seating and just watch the world go by?
Torremolinos has a very comprehensive range of shops. Local markets trade on different days in different places up and down the coast too. You're sure to enjoy taking time browsing as you stroll down Calle San Miguel. If you visit Malaga, take a trip down Calle Larios with its exciting shops and street entertainers. In December, the whole place comes alive in spectacular form with thousands of Christmas lights.

Hi there, my name is Ginny and I am the proud owner of this unusual property. I have only owned it for the last 5 years but before that it was the home on my beloved parents who moved out to Spain from England in 1984. Sadly my mum and dad have passed away so the apartment was left to me in their will. I thought about selling up but decided to keep the place on. After all, I have had such happy times there and in Torremolinos itself. Now my partner and I have many friends who live locally and having somewhere to stay if we fancy a visit is a very nice feeling.
The apartment was in need of an overhaul however so I spent much of my inheritance on refurbishment. This included starting with the basics by having the apartment completely rewired which included having a mains cable installed from the ground up 17 floors to the apartment and also fitting a brand new consumer unit. We continued by ripping out and replacing the old kitchen and bathroom units, and completely retiling the bathroom. We then bought new electrical equipment for the ‘new’ kitchen and bought new beds, dining table and chairs, a reclining armchair and a bed settee. The apartment was decorated throughout and new curtains were hung. We have kept the original floor tiles (which took some cleaning with all the dust created from the re-wiring I can tell you)! One day the tiles may be replaced but we love the original terracotta look which just seems to us so ‘Spanish’. Some of the original Spanish furniture also remains which again we think adds to the charm and character of the place.
We are very pleased with the results – and hope mum and dad would have been happy with our decisions too. If you choose this apartment for your stay, we hope you will love it as much as we do.
