Hilltop apartment with views of Aguilas bay/castle
Description from the owner
Lovely apartment in secluded part of the Los Collados resort. Situated on the Costa Calida coastline, only five minutes drive away from beach and new shopping mall. The apartment and surrounding gardens have glorious views of the Aguilas and coast.
This is one of the few parts of Spain still relatively untouched by tourism. The nearby beaches are not overcrowded and the fishing town of Aguilas is just a few minutes drive away.
A car is essential to get to the beach and shopping mall and also to explore the nearby bays and coves.

Aguilas is a quaint, Spainish seaside get away, great for couples or families alike. The beach is only 15 minutes away from the apartment there is a pool right outside the front door. If you are after a relaxing Spainish holiday, away from the usual night life noise, this is for you. The apartment was clean and fully furnished with kitchen and dining equipment. There is also a small bar on-site and a large supermarket down the road.
