About Nicky Rowley

We came across Salobrena and the Costa Tropical by accident. We were on our honey moon having just been married in Gibraltar in the summer of 2005. We have spent a lot of time in Spain and have found some beautiful areas but none compared to here. Salobrena is still traditionally very Spanish, unlike the other Costa's. We liked it so much we now have a home here. A great climate all year round and plenty to see and do, lazing around on the beaches or hiking about on the mountains where else in the world can you ski in the morning and be having lunch on the beach in the afternoon. Come and try it...we did!

Nicky Rowley purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Nicky Rowley chose Salobreña

Love the area the people and the climate. Easy access to airports, motorways are new and good and noooo traffic. The Spanish come here for their holidays so it must be good. It is still very traditionally Spanish. The Costa Tropical is still an unknown area to many & is so unlike any of the other Costa's. Who could ask for more?

What makes this apartment unique

Next to private residents facilities with tennis, a 25 mtr pool plus childrens pool in well kept gardens,footie pitch, play area,gym equipment, poolside cafe bar(seasonal). Security key access only (given on arrival) so completely safe for families with children. Near to the town for shops and restaurants, choice of beaches, places of interest to visit, mountain walks and skiing in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

we have had 2 smashing weeks with the family.The area is just what we looked for and the apartment was great and luxurious. We thank Kevin and Nicky for your hospitality and great service. We hope to be back in the future. Kindest regards Mike Hennie Sara and Sophie Janssen. Rotterdam. Holland.

We had a lovely time at the apartment, we had a warm welcome and Nicky and Kevin were very helpful during our stay. The pools and tennis and table tennis were a big hit with our family and very conveniently located to the apartment, as were the beaches. We look forward to coming back to this lovely part of Spain in the near future. Hewitt Family. Buckinghamshire.UK

1 Miles
La Caleta/Salobrena
Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

The surrounding area is renowned for it's spectacular walks and cycling routes, famous walking routes throughout the Alpujarras and it's villages right up through to the Sierras and Granada. Horse trekking routes are also available.


Monte de los Almendros rises just above the beaches at La Caleta and Salobrena,the walk down is quite pleasant and would take 15/20 minutes to the village. The walk back up would take longer and not for the faint hearted ! We would recommend hiring a car for ease of access to the town and it's beaches. Salobrena has a number of good chiringitos dotted along the beach and the town also boasts several good restaurants and cafes.


The Costa Tropical is easily accessed from Airports at Malaga (now less than 1 hr) and Granada (50 mins). Almeria is approx 1.5 hrs drive. To enjoy all that the Costa tropical and surrounding area has to offer, we recommend that you hire a car.


There is so much to see and do around this area, the towns of Salobrena, Almunecar and Motril are still very traditionally Spanish, very different to the other costas. They are steeped in Moorish history and probably the finest example of this is the Alhambra Palace at Granada just a short drive away, there are organised excursions and a regular bus service. Granada is a fine city with good shops and restaurants, well worth making a day of it.

Further Details:

From the apartment and villa to the local supermarket where there is good parking, will take a drive of 4/5 minutes, where you can stock up on local delicacies and fantastic wines. There are some nice shops and the local municipal market stocks local fish and meat,fruit and veg'.There are many banks and cash points. Shops do close at 2pm for siesta and re-open between 4.30 and 5pm. The larger supermarkets stay open throughout the day until late in the evening. Wander around the old town of Salobrena and it's narrow winding streets that lead up to the castle where you can enjoy spectacular views for miles around.
