Villa overview

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 Almunecar maintains its authentically Spanish character while welcoming international holidaymakers, a key factor in our familys decision to invest here. We spend as much time here as possible!

The Costa Tropical runs from Nerja to Motril and is characterised by a variety of beaches and a sub-tropical climate that supports avocados, mangoes and bananas.

A variety of holidays can be enjoyed at our house, including relaxing by the pool, visiting nearby beaches, water sports, horse riding, scuba diving, golf, cycling and walking in the countryside. Spain's premiere ski resort is available in the winter and spring.

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.

The magnificent city of Granada with its spectacular Alhambra palace is only 60 minutes away by car, with high quality skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains from December to April. Skiing in the morning and the beach in the afternoon can be an option in the winter. Seville, another great destination, can be reached in 3 hours.

Gorgeous and peaceful setting
The house is in the community "Fuentes de Almunecar" (Fountains of Almunecar), perched strategically on a hilltop overlooking a spectacular coastline and backed by ranges of hills. The grounds are landscaped with trees, streams, 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, neither of the pools is securely fenced and young children need to be supervised. The Infinity pool is open from 15th June to 15th September. The Panoramic pool is open all year weather permitting.

The centre of Almunecar 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 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.

Almunecar can be reached easily by car from two airports: Malaga or Granada (each 60 mins). There is a wide choice of car hire options from these airports (we can provide suggestions if needed).

Our local manager maintains the property.

The house
The 4-bedroom house (one double, three twins) is on the corner of a group of four units. It has three floors and a large terrace with a dining table and chairs. The total indoor area is about 125 m2. There are two full bathrooms, one en suite with two showers, plus an extra WC. One bedroom has a private terrace. The interior is roomy and the ceilings high, contributing to a light and open house interior. Eight people are very comfortable here.

The main terrace is large and quiet, with an extraordinary 180 degree panorama view and opportunities to observe both sunrise and sunset. 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 in all bedrooms and central heating ensures that the house is comfortable year round.

Please do not bring your pets.

We arrived early, but we could leave our cases in the house while we went to do some shopping. The inside of the house was ideal, but the outside terrace hadn't been cleaned. The parasol was damaged and the base was broken, so it was unsafe to use. As commented in a previous review there are 40 steps down to the front door, so wouldn't be suitable...

We'll start by saying that we just checked with our local manager who told us that your arrival day (mid August) was incredibly busy and the terrace may indeed not have been cleaned thoroughly, which is inexcusable. We would have taken care of this (as well as the door lock) immediately had you informed us, but unfortunately you didn't - I don't...

Prachtige omgeving, mooi huis met alles erop en eraan. Zeer goede bedden en uitstekend ingerichte keuken. Het enige probleem zat het in het feit dat je alles met de auto moet doen. Er is in de buurt helemaal niets, geen winkel o.i.d. Je bent dus verplicht om alles met de auto te doen.

Here is this review in English via Google Translate: "Beautiful setting, beautiful house with all the trimmings. Very good beds and well equipped kitchen. The only problem was in the fact that you do with the car to do. There is nothing around, no shopping or the like You are therefore obliged to do everything by car." We do recommend on our web...

My wife Anne and I love Almunecar and the Costa Tropical and have been coming here since 2004. We originally visited as a winter break from our home in Norway although this is a great year-round destination and we have even enjoyed some mild and sunny Christmas weather here. We find that Almunecar and the Costa Tropica have a more authentically Spanish vibe than the Costa del Sol further west. We have always known Almunecar as an attractive town in a beautiful area with favourable weather. During the last ten years Almunecar has invested well in improving its beaches, landmarks, cultural monuments, shops and public services, and it now has an excellent selection of restaurants and access to a wide range of outdoor activities. When we first started coming our children were young teenagers, now they are adults and they still enjoy the area and keep coming back with their friends. In recent years we have usually visited Fuentes de Almunecar at Easter and again in October, and enjoy renting our property out to holidaymakers during the rest of the year.
