Excellent location in the centre of Malaga,

5 of 5
The location was just what we were looking for, right in the centre of the old town so that we could walk out into the many restaurants in Place de Le Merced and then on to the main shopping area, the harbour promenade and the beach. The apartment has a well appointed kitchen and comfortable bedroom and dining/lounge area. We used the 'pull out' sofa bed which was excellent. The crowning glory for us was the balcony with fabulous views over the Cathedral and the old town. We were greeted by Aurelio who explained everything to us on arrival. On the night before we left, we managed to lock ourselves out of the apartment and Aurelio came to our aid at 20.30 on a Sunday evening which was more than we had any right to expect. We expect to return at some time.

Fabulous house. You must stay here!

5 of 5
The house was in an ideal location, right on the beach. It was spotlessly clean and the decor was lovely. We spent lots of time on the sun terrace which had great views. The restaurants and bars close by were very reasonably priced and we never had a bad meal. I would highly recommend this house and will definately be visiting again.
