We have an extensive knowledge of this area having lived and worked here for many years. In our opinion the best supermarket is 'Mercadona' situated just on entering the town of Torre del mar. The nearest bars and restaurants are in the town as well or there is a typical Spanish bar/restaurant in Almayate (next village) called 'Pepe Molina's'. Here you can often see the local bulls been shooed (yes they still use bulls to work the fields). There are numerous banks in Torre but they are only open Monday to Friday from 8.30am till 2pm. There are plenty of cash points doted around the town. We can inform you of many leisure activities and sports and inside the villa is a booklet of information. There is a water park only 10 min drive away but we recommend the water park in Torromelinos due to it's size and facilities. We are always happy to recommend places. The Alhambra palace (home of Henry VIII's first wife) is around 1 hrs drive away but you do have to book tickets well in advance.
The beach is only 5 min drive from the villa. The beach is located in Torre del Mar which boast the longest promenade in Malaga. There are many beach bars and restaurants and the town is very typically Spanish. The beaches are clean and you will find free sports and exercise equipment to use and also ping pong tables, volley ball courts and children's play area's. There is plenty of parking in and around the beach area. There is also a small marina at the far end of the town called Caleta.
There are 2 golf course's within 20 min drive. The first is Baviera which is less than 10 min drive from the villa and is a well maintained 18 hole golf course. The second is Anoreta which is 20 min drive from the villa and again is a well maintained golf course having amazing views of the mountains and sea.
The main town of Torre del Mar is just 5 min in a car and not only has the beach but also all the shops, supermarkets restaurants and night life. Nerja is just 30 min drive east of the vi
Sol y Nieve is in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just 90 min drive from the villa. This ski resort successfully hosted the 1996 World Ski Championships. The Sierra Nevadas can offer a long season, from early December through to early May, and with snow cannons covering 32km of piste, you are almost guaranteed good snow. With 87km of piste: 11 green, 36 blue, 35 red and 5 black runs, served by a good network of 24 lifts with a current capacity of nearly 48,000 passengers /hr, there should be enough to keep intermediates happy for a few days.
There is also plenty to do off the slopes. In the small resort town of Pradollano, non-skiers can perfect their spins on the ice rink or relax in the Turkish steam bath at the Montebajo Sports Club. On a fine day, take the lift onto the mountain and relax on the sunny terrace of one of the many restaurants, while admiring the spectacular views that stretch across the Mediterranean to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
