Accommodations in Costa Tropical- Granada

Although not as well known as its neighbour Costa del Sol in the west, the Costa Tropical of Granada is similarly picturesque with beachside holiday rentals but without the crowds. Costa Tropical villas and apartments lie in the heart of old Spain where holiday homes are scattered along small traditional fishing villages with the mountains and seas as its backdrop.

Places to holiday in Costa Tropical- Granada

Málaga- The city is a popular tourist destination and quintessentially more Spanish than any other city on the Costa del Sol. A popular walk in the Paseo del Parque leads up the hill to the Gibralfaro castle offering panoramic views of the city. Also as the site of Pablo Picasso’s birth, art lovers will be delighted by the opening of the new Centre of Contemporary Art and the Málaga Picasso Museum, where visitors can visit the house Picasso grew up in. Also worth seeing is the Moorish Alcazaba, a fortified palace started in the eleventh century and Málaga’s cathedral, which is Renaissance outside, baroque inside. Life in Malaga centres around the Plaza de la Constitucion and the main shopping parade, Marqués de Larios, which leads down towards the port.

La Herradura and Almuñécar- Forming the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical, La Herradura and Almuñécar is a relatively unknown stretch of Spain's southern coastline that belongs to Granada province in Andalucia. It lies between the more populous. Because of its proximity to Africa, La Herradura and Almuñécar have a geography and climate that is unique to any other coastline in southern Spain. Granada holiday homes are located along rugged hills or in steep valleys along the sea. Along the coastline, visitors staying in holiday homes can choose from a large variety of beaches and small coves, including Cabria, El Pozuelo, El Toserillo, Velilla, Puerta del Mar, San Cristobal, de Cotobro, del Muerto, and de la Herradura. Water sports are also popular and offer various courses and equipment hire.

Punta de la Mona- A rocky urbanized area, Punta de la Mona is home to some of Costa Tropical’s most luxurious holiday rentals. The area is home to several small beaches and the Marina del Este, which is centre of nautical life for the area. The port is a popular venue, sprinkled with several restaurants, bars and boutiques. Nearby is the Playa de los Berengueles, the Punta's only beach. Holiday homes in Punta de la Mona vary from large and discrete with private gardens to new apartments or pueblo-style holiday homes. But no matter what, visitors are guaranteed to have breathtaking panoramic views.

Salobreña- The jewel of the Costa Tropical is a white city township clinging with gorgeous beaches, a Moorish castle and surrounded by sugar cane plantations. Only 45 minutes from Granada, Salobrena has an ideal location for holiday home renters hoping to see the entire region.The Moorish castle was built in the 10th century. The Mudejar 16th century church, Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Rosario is built on top of the old mosque. The town is crowded with bars and restaurants offering anything from seafood to fresh fruits. Salobrena enjoys a colourful cultural scene, with concerts, plays and films all year-round. In the summer, outdoor shows are held in the Arab Castle, the Old Town, and Parque de la Fuente. It also has colourful annual fiestas.

                                                                                                      I'm not sure I want everyone to know about La Palomita but I am going to be very good and give it the review it deserves! Circumstances meant we'd been unable to travel much with our two daughters of 14 and 7 up until now. Making up for lost time, this spring we decided that a first trip to Spain for any of us would encourage the girls with their Spanish. I really wanted to avoid mass tourism and had a dream of Spain and Andalucia in particular that I feared reality couldn't match up to - particularly on our limited budget. When I was despairing of finding the place that suited us all at a price we could afford, La Palomita popped up out of a random search. Was it really this price I enquired? Yes it was! Gigi Sudbury, the owner, is that rare type of very interesting person who is genuinely interested in others and exceedingly kind . Both her and Gym, her friend, fellow artist and property manager ( who renovated and used to own La Palomita) dealt with our chaotic travel hiccups very patiently on the night we arrived. In the morning a busy Gym, who unfortunately had very little sleep due to us, found the time to bring some delicious jam, milk and butter and even ran after the bread van for us! La Palomita is like an artist's dream of Andalucia, with all of it's shades, colours, textures and spaces. No object is out of place and being in La Palomita is like living in a beautiful work of art, but with intense comfort in the essentials. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The girls loved all of the courtyards, the roof terrace and the nooks and crannies. Every day we saw something new we hadn't noticed before. The changing light is lovely in the interiors and courtyards. It is the most ideal destination for a family that are new to Spain and car hire, want to be away from the hurly burly and yet get into it easily whenever they want. Chite is a very short 5/10 minute walk along a panoramic pavement from the bigger Lecrin. From Malaga airport drive up motorway, turn left at Motril and then left again to Chite. In an hour and a quarter from the airport you are in the peaceful, friendly surroundings of the village looking over to the Sierra Nevada mountains. If you aren't confident to drive up the narrow street La Palomita is on, just park in the wider street towards the main road. There is always a space and the walk to the house is short and pleasant. We can't wait to go back.

We have now stayed at 5 different properties in Orgiva, and the last three of them have all been with Oliver. The reason for this is simple, everything work out seamless. Oliver has several properties that can be hired, all of them are absolutely favourable, but for different needs and purposes. All are completely equipped and you are well taken care of from the point you are entering Orgiva. Whenever coming back, we will not look for anything else. Well done Oliver ! Bonny and Kjell
