About our home

This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment has a south facing balcony overlooking one of the pools. In the complex there's (free of charge) tennis, paddle tennis, table tennis, indoor splash pool, jacuzzi, gym, turkish bath and a sauna. Tennis racquets and balls plus table tennis bats and balls are in the apartment for you to borrow.

Wifi is available and there's air conditioning in all rooms. There are 4 swimming pools in the complex and 2 children's playgrounds plus an area for boules. This secure complex has spacious, colourful, well tended gardens.

The beach is about 300 metres from the complex. There is a promenade, parallel to the beach, leading into Almerimar harbour with bars, restaurants and chiringuitos along the way. The harbour is one of the largest in Europe and there is a multitude of bars and restaurants - Spanish (of course) but also Chinese, Indian, English, Italian, Irish. Being in Andalucia, all bars and restaurants offer a wide range of free tapas with each alcoholic drink. There is a 27 hole golf course in Almerimar and other courses within easy reach - the closest being in Roquetas de Mar.

Although Almerimar enjoys a great climate - said to be one of the sunniest parts of Spain all year round - the slopes of the Sierra Nevada are only a couple of hours away. It's almost surreal to sit on the beach in the sunshine and look at the snow topped mountains in the distance. For culture lovers, Granada is only about an hour's drive away and the Moorish influence is evident throughout the area. Apart from the beautiful mountain scenes of the Sierra Nevada Nature Park there are the spectacular beaches of the Cabo de Gata Nature Park. Also there are 3 Western style theme parks in the area (where some Spaghetti westerns were filmed.)

NB The pools are unheated and are only open from June to September, when lifeguards are present. The long beach is only a few hundred metres from the complex.

This is our holiday home so a non-simultaneous swap is possible - or a swap for points. We also have a 2 bedroom apartment near Murcia (220 km north of Almerimar) on a golf complex.

and a 2 bedroom apartment in Fuzeta in the Eastern Algarve - about 600 km from Almerimar.

If you wish to explore part of Europe, driving between 2 or all 3 of the apartments is a possibility although there are airports within easy reach of all the apartments.

As the property is a holiday home, there will be a charge for preparing/cleaning the apartment and for our key holder to 'meet and greet' you. For more details ask us via placesinthesun@gmail.com
