Wonderful winter holiday break

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally situated overlooking other very good houses and villas to the old town and the castle with mountains beyond.

The sea is just viewable from the roof terrace and is a 10 minute walk downhill to an excellent promenade with bars and restaurants. The beach,as in most parts of these costas, is brown earth with grit and pebbles but is extremely picturesque with lots of palm trees.

The old town is another 10-15 walk along this attractive promenade and is made up of alleyways and shops with a fantastic covered market selling meat and fish. There's a very good supermarket just 5 minutes drive away from the property.

There is an Anglican church just 5 minutes walk away.

The weather was very good.....often 20 degrees....with some odd showers.

Excellent very well equipped and comfortable house with outstanding roof terrace and pool

  • 5 of 5

Really great well equipped house with outstanding roof terrace with pool which we used every day even though early in year. (April/May) Very easy walking to bakery and supermarket just 5 mins down hill and easy 15 min stroll into town along sea front .... we had a car but only used it to go out of town. Many good restaurants and bars and we had special birthday meal at El Chaleco (5 min walk) which was exceptionally delicious and good value for that standard of food. Altogether great holiday with fantastic accommodation!

fantastic villa well placed for everything you need for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

we had a great holiday. Sharron was the perfect host in ensuring we had all the necessary details for every device in the villa, recommendations for hotels, bars and shopping. The villa is extremely comfortable and a real home from home - the roof top terrace is wonderful with great views out to sea, across the town and the mountains. The villa is spotlessly clean and very well equipped.

Rooftop idyll

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing, hidden gem! The rooftop is huge and we lived on it in temperatures in the mid-high 30s for the whole week! Swimming, table tennis, sunbathing and lazing with books in the shade, barbecues in the impressive built-in brick oven and card games by night. The beach and bars and restaurants were a short walk away, likewise supermarkets, although we did have a car, it is not necessary. The house itself is fantastic - it has everything you need, including a very well-stocked, spacious kitchen and the beds were really comfy! Great showers and water pressure was really good. The house has a wonderful atmosphere, everyone connected with it is so friendly and just wanted to make sure that we had a great time! This really added to the relaxation of the holiday. Really we would return tomorrow -- there are now good Easyjet flights direct to Granada from LGW, which I would recommend -- the drive through the Sierra Nevada was stunning - and the restaurant we loved most was L'Osteria, just across from the beach. Thank you, Sharron for sharing your wonderful house with us. We will be back!

Resort – Almunecar

Just a few minutes drive or a leisurely 15 minute stroll takes you into the heart of town. From once the old fishing village days of Laurie Lee, Almunecar has grown into an attractive town full of true Spanish flavour. The maze of narrow streets hosts a fusion of bars, restaurants and shops, where you can take a break in one of the many squares and enjoy the custom of free tapas served with drinks. The daily markets in Town are popular and renowned for its fresh fish and meat markets perfect for alfresco bbq.

Nearby Places:

Nerja, bustling by day and by night, has all the facilities of a modern resort, charming but lively with its twisting alleyways, lined with family owned shops and excellent variety of restaurants. Nerja has several popular beaches with lively bars and restaurants whilst others are quieter and more secluded with rock pools in which to explore marine life. . For walkers there are many way-marked walks taking you along the coast or inland. Inland, Lake Vinuela is well worth a trip to see this beautiful blue lagoon surrounded by the mountains. Take the scenic coast road east to Marina del Este, a bustling little port lined with bars and restaurant

Granada and the Alhambra Palace are just over an hours drive away and the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada just 20 minutes from there.
