Our apartment is situated on the Costa del Sol aprox. 12 km from Marbella between La Cala and Calahonda right on the sea front with fantastic views of the Mediterrean. It is two bedroomed and has all modern appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, condenser dryer and an oven. We have one bedroom with a double bed and another with two single beds, a bathroom with a bath and shower, an American style kitchen, a large living room with TV and DVD player (both English and Spanish channels) and a terrace with glass curtains which can be opened or closed. It is located in a very well maintained complex with lovel gardens, two swimming pools, a kiddies pool and a tennis court. Also located in the complex is the "Garden Bar" which is open daily and also serves food including dinner in the evenings. See www.apart4letrocasdelmar.webs.com for more information and photos.
From our complex there is direct access to the shoreline with beaches just a short walk both left and right and also some spanish Chirinquitos which serve lovely tapas! There is a bus stop right outside the complex from where you can visit any part of the Coast. Also trips can be booked on the Complex for such places as Morocco, Gibralter, Granada, Seville etc. Just a short walk away is Riviera where there are shops, restaurants, bars and a crazy golf course. Both La Cala and Calahonda can be reached in a 15 mins walk either by beach or road where there are many more restaurants, shops etc. If you are interested in golf there are an abundance of courses in the locality. Overall the area can provide everything from peacefull beach walks, beautiful food to good nightlife.
We are an Irish Couple, Brendan and Nuala. Brendan is a full time carer for his mother and Nuala works in an admin role. As we cannot exchange cars, we would prefer to stay somewhere within walking distance to a shop, restaurant etc. It does not have to be a city....we would hire a car but not for our entire holiday! So near a village or a town would be our preference so that we can walk to it.
