|RATES & DETAILS|
This lovely holiday apartment "Apartamento Fuentes" is located close to the charming and authentical Spanish town of Almuñécar on the Costa Tropical in Andalusia in a gorgeous and peaceful setting.
The apartment is located in the community "Fuentes de Almuñécar" (Fountains of Almuñécar), perched strategically on a hilltop overlooking a spectacular coastline and backed by ranges of hills. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with lush sub-tropical vegetation, trees, fountains and waterfalls. Residents are Spanish, British and a sprinkling of other nationalities.
There are two communal pools, one an 'infinity' pool, and wonderful views along the coast and out over the Mediterranean. Both pools are no more than a two minute walk from the apartment. While one of the two communal pools has a daytime lifeguard during the summer, neither of the pools is securely fenced and young children need to be supervised.
The 2-bedroom apartment has a total indoor area is about 85 sqm. There is one full bathroom plus a WC. The interior is roomy, contributing to a light and open interior. Four adults are very comfortable here, plus there is a sleeper sofa in the living room that could suit two more people. The apartment is fully equipped throughout with new furniture, fixtures and fittings. The furniture was imported from Denmark.
The rooftop terrace is very large, quiet and partly shaded, with excellent views of the coast and hillsides. It is an ideal place to enjoy a relaxing meal or sunbathe. The terrace is equipped with a dining table, chairs and sun beds.
Air conditioning and heating ensures that the apartment is comfortable year round.
Please do not bring your pets.
There are excellent views from the apartment and the surrounding grounds are beautifully landscaped with trees, streams, fountains and waterfalls. Almuñecar can be reached easily by car from two airports: Malaga (60 mins) or Granada (40 mins). There is a wide choice of car hire options from these airports (we can provide suggestions if needed). We provide full information on our favorite beaches, restaurants and places to visit, as well as riding, scuba diving, walks, golf, shopping, etc., etc.
The centre of Almuñécar has a classical Spanish atmosphere and has so far avoided being dominated by tourism. The Moorish and Phoenician architectural heritage shows up in the winding passages and cobbled squares of the old quarter as well as the prominent castle. The town of Almuñécar also has several markets, some very good restaurants, a bird park, several beaches and a water park, all easily reachable from the house. Modern supermarkets, banks and other facilities are also available.
A car is needed to reach the property and to get around, particularly on warm summer days when the walk back from the nearest beaches or the centre of town can be a challenge. Driving in this part of Spain is not hard, the roads are in excellent condition and places are clearly signposted. In the house we provide a range of books, maps and suggestions for both driving and walking tours.
On arrival, our guests are provided with extensive information on local attractions and our favourite beaches, restaurants, shopping, night life, sports, sightseeing destinations, etc., many of which we have discovered by staying in the Costa Tropical area for extended periods.
A variety of holidays can be enjoyed at our holiday villa, including relaxing by the pool, visiting nearby beaches, water sports, horse riding, scuba diving, golf and walking in the countryside. Spain's premiere skiing, in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is available in the winter and spring.

Modern supermarkets, banks and other facilities are also available.
The magnificent city of Granada with its famous Alhambra palace is only 40 minutes away by car, with high quality skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains from December to April. Seville, another great destination, can be reached in 3 hours. Skiing in the morning and the beach in the afternoon can be an option during the winter. There are unlimited walking opportunities in the Alpujarra mountains within 1-2 hours drive.
The Costa Tropical is an up-and-coming area that has long been known to Spanish holidaymakers and is now starting to attract more foreign visitors. The town of Almuñecar maintains its authentically Spanish character while welcoming international holidaymakers, a key factor in our family's decision to invest here. We plan to spend as much time here as possible!
This may be the best climate in Europe. Compared to the rest of the Spanish south coast, the Costa Tropical is particularly mild in the winter and relatively cool and comfortable during the summer. There are more than 320 sunny days each year.
