About Graham Pyle

Maria Carmen and Graham Pyle have owned the Carihuela, Torremolinos property since 2001. We live in Enfield UK, although we have relatives in Torremolinos, who look after the apartment for us. We have enjoyed family holidays in Torremolinos nearly every year since we bought the apartment and our two sons now also use the apartment for their own family holidays.

Graham Pyle purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Graham Pyle chose Torremolinos

We got to know Torremolinos when Maria Carmen's sister went to work there and she introduced us to 'La Carihuela', which is a vibrant area both during the day and at night. Apart from the lovely beaches, there are many bars, shops and restaurants of all types, many of which serve seafood specialities, typical of this part of the coast. Malaga airport is only about 20 minutes drive away.

What makes this apartment unique

If you stay at our apartment you will be only 2 minutes walk from the fabulous sandy beaches, beach bars, restaurants and shops.

The apartment is on the ground floor with access through an open-air Andalusian courtyard, so no queuing for lifts or walking up flights of stairs!

We are happy to offer arrival/departure dates on any day of the week to suit your convenience and you can take advantage of lower priced midweek flights where available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thought the apartment was great and had everything we needed for our stay. The apartment was really clean & tidy and it was really helpful having the keys with us when we arrived, as we didn't have any waiting about to do.

Annabel G, Chorley, 31/08/12



We have spent our 2 week summer holiday each year since 2001 at different locations in La Carihuela and find that using your apartment for the past 3 years has best suited our needs, has been more relaxing and we would definitely stay at the apartment again.

Brian H, Wakefield, 4/11/11



It was absolutely fab! We loved where it was situated, so close to the beach, shops & restaurants, yet quiet enough at night time, it was perfect for our needs!

Samantha S, County Antrim, 13/07/11



Hi Graham. We had a wonderful few days – the apartment was great and I would like to book it again for a week in the spring. I discovered more restaurants this time around and loved the little tapas bar just round the corner.

First class apartment

  • 5 of 5

A great holiday in a great apartment. This apartment really is just 2 minutes from beach, bars, shops and restaurants. This ground floor apartment was clean, comfortable and with all the facilities you need for a holiday stay. Comfortable beds and a lovely large bathroom with walk in power shower. The kitchen has a good range of equipment, including a washing machine and tumble drier. Tv with good range of english channels to keep up with news from home. Booking was a simple process and it was good to have keys before travelling. Graham provided lots of useful information, eg local restaurants, instructions for tv & wifi etc. Graham proved easily contactable during a 'mini crisis' on our last day & his family were quick to help with cheerfulness & good humour !! Would not hesitate to recommend this apartnent to others wanting a great holiday in a great apartment.

Brilliant location spaciuos apartment

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location 2 minutes from restaurants and the beach . This isn't Torrelominos (as we know it) it is a district nearby and far nicer with hundreds of good quality authentic Spanish restaurants. The apartment itself is homely , very well equipped , clean and spacious. We loved it and will return . The communal courtyard entrance area, behind locked doors is beautiful and the property feels safe and secure because of this . The terrace is enclosed and a nice place to enjoy breakfast. There is no balcony or anywhere to dine alfresco but frankly this is not a problem - as why would you do this when there are a hundred restaurants on your doorstep . Thank you Graham – we loved the apartment and the locality . We have been travelling to the Malaga area for 20 years regularly and had never considered or heard of La Cariheuela as an area before – but it is wonderful locality.

Great Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time to stay at this apartment and We had no hesitation in booking it. It is close to all the amenities that the area has to offer. The apartment itself has everything you would need and is very comfortable to stay in. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property for your holiday base. The bus stop and taxi ranks are only a short walk away and if feeling athletic everything is within walking distance.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights and it had everything you need for your holiday. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The TV had English and Irish channels and the WI FI was excellent. Location was great it was near restaurants, shops and beach. I had my mother in law with us who was 82 years and this apartment was ideal for her as all the amenities were just around the corner. Graham was great informing us with details about the apartment and the location. We will be booking this apartment again when we visit Torromolinos.

Fabulous apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Set out for a short winter break and to take mother along too, so we decided a property may be better than hotel rooms. Having been to the area before, we knew the location was going to be great. Graham was fantastic, organising keys and sending a very full information pack, so we really couldn't go wrong. The apartment was even better than expected. Spotlessly clean, 2 full bedrooms, powerful walk in shower!, excellent sized living area and a kitchen with everything you could ask, even with washing machine and dryer. The complex itself was also very clean and the pictures are spot on. There's 2 main streets in the town and the accommodation was set one back from these, so was quiet and peaceful even though it was literally 1 minute from the main drag. There's too many bars and restaurants to fit in, so we were never struggling to entertain ourselves. It's a very welcoming and friendly resort and I couldn't recommend both Graham and the area any higher.

Carihuela
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The apartment is 2 minutes from the seafront (if you walk slowly!!). La Carihuela is at the centre of a long beach-front promenade, with its sandy beaches, which stretch from Torremolinos to Benalmadena.

There are all the usual facilities, including beach bars, sun beds and showers. Walks along the promenade are very popular and for the more active, water sports facilities, boat-hire, ‘banana’ boat, parascending, windsurfing and water skiing can be found locally.

Travel:

There are flights to Malaga from most main UK airports. The airport is located west of the city of Malaga, approx 9 kms (about 20 minutes drive) to the apartment.

Car hire is not essential, as all amenities are close by and buses/taxis are readily available. The railway station in Torremolinos town centre serves Malaga Airport and Malaga city to the east, Benalmadena and Fuengirola to the west.

Distances:

Torremolinos town centre (15 mins walk or short bus ride) for shopping etc. Malaga (17kms, about ½ hour by bus or train) for that big shopping trip!

The Costa del Sol offers much to see and do, from water-parks (including Aquapark in Torremolinos), bowling and Tivoli World Theme Park to local ‘fiestas’ and places of historical interest such as Granada (140 kms) and Sevilla (225). Other local resorts include Benalmadena (7 kms), Fuengirola (21), Mijas 29), Puerto Banus (54)and Marbella (54).

Further Details:

There are numerous bars, hotels and nightspots, some with live music and many restaurants, offering a variety of cuisine. For the energetic, there are discotheques and night clubs.

Within the nearby pedestrians-only area, there are many interesting shops, selling clothes, leather, souvenirs etc, as well as bakeries, banks, supermarkets etc.
