We are delighted to offer you
our beautiful Holiday Home!
Situated in Almuñecar in Southern Spain on the authentically Spanish Costa Tropical in Andalucia.
The house is part of a group of 8 and is on 2 floors.
An hours drive inland, near to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. City with a lot of historical monuments, cultural events, “bar de tapas” and good restaurants. The Alhambra Palace - One of the most brilliant jewels of universal architecture.
THE SIERRA NEVADA MOUNTAINS
Principal mountain area with The Sierra Nevada national Park and Pradollano, the Sierra Nevada’s popular winter sports resort. Also many sporting activities all year round.
A very beautiful mountain region that forms the southern flank of the Sierra Nevada. Steep and narrow valleys overlooked by small villages. Possibilities of hiking, guided walks, horse trekking, 4x4 and parascending. The area described by Chris Stewart in "Driving over Lemons"
Nerja caves and Frigiliana: Attractive white villages in the typical Andalucian style about 20 minutes from Almuñecar. Panoramic views over the coastline. The caves are just before entering Nerja.
There are at least 320 sunny days a year and you will often be able to eat outside or sit on the beach in winter. There are consistently and significantly more sunny days, higher temperatures and fewer rainy days at all times of year than just about anywhere else in Europe. Cooling sea breezes fan the shore for much of the year and there is no rainy season. There will only be serious rain on about 20 days a year, though when it rains it can be heavy. Winds are generally light to moderate, though you can get occasional bad weather. During the winter you will notice the sun higher in the sky and setting about 2 hours later than in the UK (usually about 6pm).
Hopefully the only brolly you’ll need will be a beach one!
Spring and autumn are frequently gorgeous, with summer being the time to come for the most sun and activities.
BEACHES IN THE AREA
The Almuñecar area has 26 different beaches!
SPORTS, ACTIVITIES & FACILITIES LOCALLY

The 11,000 feet high Sierra Nevada mountains provide skiing from early Dec to the end of April- and sometimes later- at the resort of Pradollano (Sol y Nieve). It is about an hour and 20 mins drive from Almuñecar.
If you’re feeling energetic you really can windsurf (or maybe just go to the beach) in the morning and ski in the afternoon! Pradollano is at 7,000 feet with a mid station at 9,000 feet. The top lift goes up to nearly 11,000 feet with great views of Granada, the Mediterannean and even North Africa on a clear day. There are about 25 lifts with around 70 runs. The skiing is good enough to have hosted the 1996 World Championships. It’s also a regular venue on the Snowboard World Cup circuit.
The Costa Tropical is the eastern part of the Costa del Sol, south of Granada, and stretches from Nerja to Motril. This part of the coast with North Africa on one side and the Sierra Nevada on the other side is superbly sheltered against the cold European north winds. Because of the subtropical climate with 320 days of sunshine throughout the year, the climate is ideal for "summer holidays" even in winter.
The nearest airport is Malaga Airport (about 1 hour drive), but also Almeria and Granada are an option. A car is recommended and car hire can be arranged.
