Couple of minutes walk to beach and not much further to centre of La Cala. Convenient for buses into Fuengirola and Marbella. La Cala itself is a very pleasant seaside town.

Stock und hatte eine grandiose Aussicht auf Marbella, die Berge und das Meer. Die Lage der Wohnung ist ausserordentlich gut und kaum zu überbieten. Zu Fuss erreicht man alle schönen und wichtigen Orte in Marbella. Die Strandpromenade mit den vielen Restaurants und Bars und die Altstadt von Marbella lagen direkt vor der Haustüre. Aber auch grössere Shopping-Centers und Supermärkte waren mit dem Auto in 10-20 Minuten erreichbar. Die Bushaltestelle ist ebenfalls nur 100 Meter von der Wohnung entfernt. Wir waren froh, dass wir auch bei schlechten Wetter, wenn es etwas kühler war, ein gutes Heizsystem hatten. Auch sonst war alles da, was man für einen längeren Aufenthalt braucht. Die grosse Terasse haben wir, wenn immer es das Wetter zuliess, sehr genossen. Bei Fragen konnten wir uns entweder an Cath direkt oder an der Verwaltung melden und wir erhielten immer sehr schnell und kompetente Unterstützung. Wir können diese Wohnung sehr empfehlen.
