    "A little bit of paradise"

    Our week at Las Chimeneas was in the middle of our three week vacation in Spain and Paris. The property is just as it appears in the pictures and the amenities on the property and in the neighouring towns were fabulous. Lots to do in Almunecar, Solembreno, Nerja and La Herradurra but the option of lazing around the villa and its pool was one we loved too. The beach in La Herradurra was particularly pleasant and the caves at Nerja a must. Villa was quiet and very comfortable - the drive up to the Villa is not for the faint of heart. Owners and their property manager were wonderful to deal with. I would highly recommend this property. Accomodated 3 couples very nicely with grand vistas of the Mediterranean, overlooking the pool. Access to the pool would be a challenge for some with mobility limitations. A car is a must have.

    Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children and romantic getaway

    About the Owner

    Roger and Jane have owned Las Chimeneas for 5 years; they found this unique area on the Costa Tropical 12 years ago and have been enjoying holidays there ever since. Almunecar is authentically Spanish; it is a working town - hot in summer and winter sunshine and rich blue skies in the quieter months. One of our favourite pastimes is to visit the popular Spanish plazas where traditional Spanish tapas is served. We have jobs in the Uk but use the house when we can. Every time we go we 'pinch' ourselves because we never fail to be amazed by the beautiful scenery. We never tire of it!

    Year property purchased: 2005

    Why this location?

    We love Almunecar and La Herradura because it is a favourite destination for Spanish friends and families; they often re-unite for the festivals at Easter and Summer. It is a vibrant, bustling place in the summer months but quite tranquil during the out-of-season times. The area boasts a great variety of bars and restaurants as well as some of the most lovely coves and bays. We are surrounded by stunning mountain ranges, close to the Alpujarras and the cities of Malaga and Granada. There is an excellent bus service that will take you further afield to places like Cordoba and Seville.

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    The property is just five minutes drive away from beaches and the town centre. It is one of a number of unique, individually styled villas on the Rancho Rio Verde; quiet yet local. The large swimming pool is not over-looked.
