Ladera del Mar stands on a cove on Andalucia’s Costa del Sol, just a short distance outside the town of Nerja. The beaches of Ladera del Mar are stunning, and easily accessible from any of the villas for rent in Ladera del Mar and its surrounding areas. The village is surrounded by lush plains covered in exotic plants, and the atmosphere is wonderfully relaxed, far from the noise and bustle of nearby Nerja town.
It is Ladera del Mar’s beaches which first attract visitors to villas for rent in Ladera del Mar, but upon arrival, you realise just how large the appeal of the village really is. The Mediterranean coast is particularly known for its golden sand beaches, and Burriani Beach, the main one in Ladera del Mar, is particularly popular with those who have discovered it. There are actually a whole range of small cove beaches to be discovered from a Ladera del Mar villa for rent, so there should be no problems in finding an idyllic spot to place your towel and set up for a lazy day in the sun. If you are looking to try almost any water sport, the beaches of Nerja are filled with water sports centres, and can be reached in just 5 minutes by car.
The Sierra Almijara are a huge asset for anyone with a love of the great outdoors staying in a Ladera del Mar villa. The mountains are just a short drive from the village, and offer some of the most impressive views in Axarquia. There are not only walking, hiking and mountain biking trails running through the rugged peaks, but also excellent 4x4 and off road trail riding trails. There are a couple of off-roading centres in Ladera del Mar, and no experience is necessary to take a tour. On the quieter side of life, the Sierras surrounding a Ladera del Mar villa are a haven for wildlife, and you can enjoy a range of bird watching trips.
There are also a range of golf courses available to play from a self catering Ladera del Mar villa rental. The closest, just 15 minutes away, is the beautiful Baviera Golf Course, which offers 18 holes of top class golf for a very reasonable price.
Nerja town, which is just a 5 minute drive from a villa for rent in Ladera del Mar, is a haven of activity. The water sports credentials are second to none in the region, and there are a handful of beautiful places to visit during your stay. The Nerja Caves are truly remarkable, especially during August when the national orchestra play concerts from the main chambers. The Church of El Salvador and Gardens of Capistrano Playa are also well worth exploration from a Ladera del Mar villa.
Ladera del Mar receives over 300 days of sunshine in an average year with monthly temperatures averages never dipping below 12˚C. In the summer months, it is exceedingly rare to encounter daily temperatures under 30˚C, and even in winter, a jumper is not essential!
Malaga Airport (AGP) is just 45 minutes from a holiday rental villa in Ladera del Mar. As the main airport on the Costa del Sol, Malaga receives a huge range of flights from across Great Britain, provided by almost every airline that has flights to and from the UK.
