Overview

The Costa Tropical is a very appealing 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 rugged cliffs falling to the sea, a variety of beaches and a sub-tropical climate that supports avocados, mangoes and bananas.

A variety of holidays can be enjoyed at our apartment, including relaxing by the pool, visiting nearby beaches, water sports, horse riding, scuba diving, golf and walking in the countryside. Spains 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. Daytime highs range from 16 C in the winter to 29 in July and August, with lows of 8 in the winter and 20-22 in the summer.

The magnificent city of Granada with its spectacular Alhambra palace is only 40 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 spring. Seville, another great destination, can be reached in 3 hours.

Gorgeous and peaceful setting
New in 2007, the apartment 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 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, 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).

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 area for extended periods. Our local manager maintains the property and, if requested, can arrange activities and excursions.

The apartment
The 2-bedroom apartment has a total indoor area is about 85 m2. 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 children. 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.

We had a great stay. The apartment was fine, and very clean. We enjoy the roof terrasse upstairs as much as the one outsite the bedrum.
Only thing we would had liked to know, was that there are no elevator and a lots of stairs. Absolutly a cosy and interessting town - Almuneca. A good spot to take out from. Lots of possibility near by.
We sure want to come back some day.

Nice House, we had a great stay. many stairs so I would recommend that children are at least 2 years old. unless you have child safety locks for the stairs.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely apartment/house. Very nice terrace with amazing view.

We had to rent an extra baby-chair for our youngest son, and also extra security for the stairs. I do think this apartment better suits family’s with older children 3+.

Will however highly recommend to friends, family etc.

Very nice apartment with a super roof terrace. Nice pools. However, we had trouble opening the front door on arrival, and in fact it was only my husband who could open it from the outside our entire stay. It required lifting the door while turning the key in a very special way. Apart from that we were very pleased with the apartment.

Reply from Michael

We are glad you enjoyed the apartment. We did, of course, fix the door as soon as we became aware of this problem.

A beautiful town house,set on a hillside in the pretty Fuentes de Almunecar.It had everything we needed,and was very clean and tidy with modern decor and furnishings. It had amazing views of the sea one side and the Sierra Nevada mountains the other.These views can be seen from an exceptional roof terrace which was very spacious and had a table and chairs, sun loungers and a barbecue area. It had a lovely lounge and dining area and two large bedrooms. We had a very enjoyable stay at this town house and will be returning in the future to see even more of this beautiful area of Spain

Private Owner From Gullaug, Norway Member since Feb 2006

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.
