Fuentes de Almunecar
Fuentes is set in lovely surroundings and has 2 magnificent swimming pools , an infinity pool which overflows to give the effect of flowing into the sea and a panoramic pool with views to the east. The infinity pool is only open from June 15-Sept 25 while the panoramic pool is open all year-round. The grounds are landscaped with trees, streams, fountains and waterfalls .
Fuentes de Almunecar is protected by security guards for your own peace of mind.
Situated just 5 mins drive from the sea and the nearby coastal resort of Almunecar, Fuentes nestles between the sea and the impressive mountains of the Sierra Nevada. It is situated above the historical town of Almunecar, which is a typically Spanish town complete with Moorish castle and old district.
The delightful cove of Tesorillo , the nearest beach is only 15 minutes walk away. It is downhill all the way - therefore uphill all the way back!
There are over 25 local beaches in the Almunecar and La Herradura area.
To get the most out of this holiday, the surrounding area and the many interesting places to visit, a car would be an advantage.
Almunecar and the surrounding area
Almunecar itself is an historical Spanish town with a handsome Moorish castle. The most attractive part of Almunecar is the old pueblo which is mostly inaccessible by car. Simply wander around its streets filled with boutiques and tapas bars and take in the maze of narrow passageways.
Those who appreciate the heritage of Spain will love ancient Granada and its world famous Alhambra .
Other places of interest include La Herradura with its beautiful horse-shoe bay, Salobrena complete with moorish castle built on an outcrop of rock, Nerja the popular beach resort and the Alpujarras (excellent for hiking and trekking).
On the west of Almunecar is the Punta de la Mona , a pineclad headland sheltering the attractive Marina del Este a water sports base. Also just over an hour away is ski-ing in the Sierra Nevada at Solynieve .
The beautiful resorts of Salobrena, La Herradura and Nerja nearby together with the Sierra Nevada mountain range, make this part of Andalucia very attractive.
Winter or Summer
The weather on the Costa Tropical has a sub-tropical climate (hence its name) which ensures that, even in Winter the temperature rarely drops below 10C. On average it rains only 20 days a year so it is an ideal destination during the winter months.

Fuentes de Almunecar villa rental was fantastic. The kids (11 and 8) loved the pools, the parents loved the quite setting. Great views of the mountains and parts of town. Fairly easy to get to and from town for beach visits, food, etc. If walking from the Villa to the beach give yourself some time as its a kind of a hike (we drove up and down to beach as we usually wrapped beach time with errands we wanted to run). The property is 100% turn key. All you need is food and drink. If you want a quite setting close to town but not "in town" Fuentes de Almunecar villa rental would be a good choice.
Nice property, well equipped - the bedroom fans were essential in August. The pool was great and just enough parking space.
Up a v steep hill, well out of town and a car is essential.
The property is set up in the hills and you have fantastic views. It is a lovely house, well maintained and furnished to a high standard. The house is in a beautiful area. I would definitely like a return visit.
It was realy nice to arrive late in the afternoon and find fresh bread, water, a bottle of white wine and a few other things!
The appartment, the pool, the mountains, the view, simply everything was very good.
All good thing can become even better. We have two suggestions; one for the house and one for the Fuentes-concept: A better frying pan for the kitchen and that they open the best pool in spring. It was sad to view this very nice area closed down until 15./6.
We found the place allright, but with a teenage-card-reader we were lost a couple of times.
But still: The overall conclusion is that it was a perfect week!
The description of how to get there was perfect.
The apartment was well equipped, but some additional plates and mugs would have reduced the number of times we had to run the dishwasher and thus reduced the owner's electricity bill.
There was a nasty smell of sewage when we came. This was caused by a leakage at the outlet of the washing machine and was quickly fixed after a call to the owner in England.
The soap dishes in the showers were made of glass and if you are not careful, you may inadvertently cause them to fall on the tiled floor and break. Plastic would be the thing.
But these are minor things. All in all we were very satisfied, and had a great stay in the appartment.
