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!

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

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.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

The beaches of La Herradura and Marina del Este are two of the finest areas for Scuba diving; local dive centres offer a variety of courses. Alternatively,wander around the marina and hire a catarmaran for a few days. Wind surfing and Paragliding are available in La Herradura. For those who would like a 'winter stay' Spanish language schools offer courses for all levels.


A variety of beaches are only 5 minutes drive away. The water is crystal clear and holiday makers would sea swim from May to late October. Most beaches enjoy excellent Chiringito casual dining facilities; there are palm-fringed promenade beaches as well as secluded coves.


Malaga (most major airlines) and Granada airports are serviced by excellent motorway networks and is approximately 1 hour drive away. Car hire is essential and there are lots of reputable companies to choose from. Please contact for advice if necessary.

From the Owner

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.
