Modern, town house for 4 people (more with small children) with fabulous terraces set in landscaped gardens with excellent swimming pools. Charming town, beaches, restaurants all within 5 minutes drive
The town house 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 trees, streams, 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. 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.
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 town house
The 2-bedroom town house has two floors plus a large roof terrace with a dining table and chairs. The total indoor area is about 90 m2. There is one full bathroom plus an extra WC. One bedroom has a private terrace. The interior is roomy and the ceilings high, contributing to a light and open interior.
The terrace is large and quiet, with an extraordinary 180 degree panorama view and opportunities to observe both sunrise and sunset. 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 central heating ensures that the property is comfortable year round.
For year-round visitors with diverse interests
The Costa Tropical is an up-and-coming 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 house, 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 winter. Seville, another great destination, can be reached in 3 hours....Read more

Me, my husband and two kids(5 months and 4 years of age) spent fantastic 10 days in the house. What impressed me in the beginning is that everything looked exactly like on the pics, and some things even exceeded our expectations, e.g. the terrace with an amazing view where we had our meals, the short distance to one of the pools, Etc. Upon our arrival we found a guest book with lots of useful info from other visitors, some maps, we also came late so ordered a welcome pack (food and drinks). We had a car as it is an essential thing when you travel to almunecar - you can visit towns and attractions nearby. The way to the house is a bit tricky but we were sent the directions with pictures. During our stay we had troubles with one of the window shutters, this was solved very promptly by the property management guys. Overall,really enjoyed everything, all of us, will definitely come back.

Extremely well equipped, modern and comfortable accommodation. Beautifully landscaped gardens with two pools really close to the house. Lovely terrace with beautiful views, good location, close to the town and beach. Great family holiday. Will definitely return!

My wife and I had a lovely stay in the Wells town house 2 years ago. The unit was extremely comfortable with excellent views of the surrounding countryside and the ocean. Almuncar is a very nice town and there are plenty of local activities, if desired. Granada and some of the stunning andalucian towns are an easy drive if exploring is on the agenda.
We plan on returning as soon as we are able.

We had a wonderful stay in almunecar,
the house was perfect, Pools are very near, the weather was great... We had a problem with a store and sent a message to Roy who was there the day after in the morning!
Indications to find fuentes de almunecar was perfect!
Well nothing else to say, it was just a perfect and great stay in andalucia!
Just one thing: Th house would need air conditioning downstairs! But most of the time we had lunches and dinners on the terrace...
