It brings a little extra peace of mind and the guided tour of the apartment, ensures you do not suffer the frustration of attempting to familiarise yourself with your holiday home after an arduous journey e.g. how does the aircon work?

THE BARE NECESSITIES
Our local "hub", less than 1 km away caters for most everyday needs; the mini-market is open 365 days until 2:00 am, there are two restaurants and two bars, an ATM machine and a laundry. The All-in-One bar will also deliver food to the apartment and you can hire DVDs from there. Two large supermarkets are 5 mins away, as you enter San Pedro de Alcantara, where there is also a 24 hour pharmacy, English speaking doctor and dentist.

THE IMMEDIATE AREA
If it’s a touch of real Spain you are looking for then go no further than San Pedro, which even boasts its own lake where you can cable-ski or take a boat out The beach & promenade stretch for 3 km and you will never feel crowded-out. It's a thriving self-sufficient little town, which accommodates tourists in its delightful local bars and restaurants. There are no pubs and no nightclubs! In complete contrast, if you want to mix with the jet-set, Puerto Banus is 10 minutes away. Try dinner overlooking the marina or designer shopping in its many boutiques. Ostentatious it is but you won't get bored! Benahavis is an 11 km drive and is a really pretty village with many restaurants around the central square and a good place to visit in the early evening.
Many top quality golf courses are within short driving distance. Selwo Safari park, the largest in Europe is just 15 min away and a wonderful experience for all the family

THINGS TO DO, PLACES TO GO
All the following towns and places are worth a visit:
Marbella, the hub of the Costa del Sol, for shopping and fine-dining. Go to Orange Square in the heart of old Marbella surrounded by bars and restaurants. Ronda a fantastic 45 minute mountain drive. First Bull-ring in the world was built here. Casares & Mijas, great examples of “white villages”. Estepona and Duquesa, to say you’ve been. Sotogrande, the most exclusive private estate in Europe - see how the other half live. Gibraltar (need your Passport). Take the tour up the Rock and see the museum and monkeys or take a boat trip dolphin & whale watching. Tarifa is a world-centre for wind-surfing. There are zoos, aqua parks, aquariums, museums (the Picasso Museum in Malaga has the largest collection of the artist's paintings in the world). The caves at Nerja are fabulous! There is something for all the family. And if it all get too much, just cool off and relax by the pool!

We hope you enjoy your stay.

Stayed Friday 01 June 2012
We throughly enjoyed our vacation at this property. The apartment was very comfortable with a lovely large terrace to enjoy in the evening. Beautiful views across the hills to the sea.The pool was quiet and relaxing with loung chairs. Quiet location with easy access to resturants and shops. Would definitely return and highly recommend.
"AbFab!" The apartment was immaculate and had more than we could have hoped for. Use the electric juicer to treat yourself to freshly made orange juice for breakfast. We had the most amazing views waking up in the morning lying in bed and looking out of the bedroom balconies. Our two children had a ball around the swimming pool which was very quiet and we often had it to ourselves (there was a wasps nest nearby, which was cleared away as soon as we reported it). We found the natural rock pool at Benahavis and the children enjoyed diving and jumping off the rocks. Great location for visiting the area. San Pedro is a lovely town full of Spanish character although the high life of Puerto Banus a 10 min drive away was not for us! We went on a fantastic mountain drive to Ronda which took around 45 mins. Best restaurant, El Coto 10 mins away on the Ronda Road. Best beach - Heaven Beach 15 mins. We had dinner on the beach but cant remember the name of the restaurant - thought we were in Barbados. Several visits to San Pedro beach and Largos Bar, great value for tapas and snacks. Best holiday weve had. Highly recommended. Thanks Robert for making everything just perfect for us. Liz & family - London
