Apartment in Velez de Benaudalla, Nr. Motril, Costa Tropical, Spain - Spanish Village Location, Local Tapas Bars,15 Minutes Drive To The Beach, 50 Mins To skiing
The property is within a secure complex in a small Spanish village with shops, bars, restaurants, banks doctors, dentist and church. The property and complex is fully maintained and serviced by a full time caretaker. The delightful village and locals will leave you wondering why you didn't come sooner! But you will need to speak some Spanish as there is very little English spoken. Amazing place ..

About Mark Bloomer
The property is owned by Joanna and Mark Bloomer, who live in Solihull, West Midlands. They have owned the property since it was built and Plan to retire there in about 100 years!
Mark Bloomer purchased this apartment in 2006
Why Mark Bloomer chose Costa Tropical & Lecrin Valley
We purchased the property as we just love the area and in particular the village and local slow pace of life.
What makes this apartment unique
We love the convenience of living in such a pleasant and well stocked village,, the proximity to the beach, skiing and mountain bike trails, the local hospitality (you will receive a different free tapa with every drink you have!!!) The beauty of opening the lounge doors to the open mountains and above all the peace!!!

Nice, well equipped, very clean, comfortable in the hottest weather, beautiful mountain views
We had a wonderful holiday - apartment was great, the location wonderful and the days were long! Emi, the complex manager very helpful in settling us in. Always on hand to answer questions. The wifi and beautiful pool satisfied my teenagers and gave us the peace we craved, the views from the terraces are spectacular, a great base from which to explore the Sierras. Each night we ate in local tapas bars; wonderful balmy evenings in an atmospheric location. A real Spanish experience. Would definitely recommend.
The apartment is very well equipped and we really enjoyed the roof terraces with wonderful views of the mountains. Velez de Banaudalla is a great base from which to visit many interesting places in Andalusia. Granada is only 45 minutes away, the coast 15 minutes, lots of unique mountain villages. Don't miss Nerja caves. The village of Velez de Banaudalla is friendly and fun to food shop with several bars and restaurants to enjoy. We had a fun and memorable vacation.
We stayed in Velez between 1st & 8th July. Set in loverly grounds the sun seemed to shine through the apartment in the right place at the right time. We did not use the A/C as the cool wind rolling down from the hills was perfect at night. The apartment is we'll equipped with all you need.
Velez is a beautifully peaceful town with enough bars and restaurants to satisfy the most ardent of food junkies. The coast is only a few miles away but for the ultimate chill out, lie by thé pool just outside your door, with a good book and let the rest of the world pass you by. I'll be back there as soon as i can. (Must visit) the dam just up the road and the snow topped mountains just in the distance.
Very comfortable apartment
The apartment is large, well equipped and very comfortable. We ate out on the terrace overlooking the hills most evenings which was fab. The beaches at Motril and Salobrena are a short drive away, as are lots of small towns offering walks, fantastic scenery and local produce. Would happily book the apartment again.
Just back from a very successful two week stay. The apartment was very comfortable and was very well equipped. It was beautifully situated with superb views from the two sunny terraces. We had everything we needed. There were plenty of places to eat and drink in the village with very friendly locals. The two small supermarkets and the wonderful local bread shops plus the weekly market supplied all we needed.
The complex and pool were beautifully kept by Emi who was very helpful.
Do explore the village. It has some beautiful gardens and many water features. This is a wonderful base for exploring this area of Spain.
