About the owner
We loved living in Almunecar, the atmosphere, the festivals, year round sunny weather, the sea and all the local activities. In one hours drive you can be up in snowy mountains of the Sierra Nevada or wander through the narrow white villages of the Alpujjarras, where chestnut trees grow and handmade rugs are still made in the local houses. There is the huge National Park behind Nerja with many hike trails, barbeque areas, acres of wild forest and high hills. Fish bars on the beach where you can order freshly caught fish, whilst sitting next to the sea. The old town is also very interesting to visit as Almunecar is steeped in history, there are Roman ruins and aqueducts, the Moorish Castle and caves, the cobbled streets and whitewashed houses all with sea views.
Why the owner chose a house / villa (old name) in this location
Almunecar is a very special town, rich in cultural history still seen and sensed today.
