Opazo Beach View. Well Furnished Top Floor Apartment With Outstanding Aspect

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Nov-2016
Apartment in La Herradura, Costa Tropical, Spain - Quiet Location at the Top of the Old Town, Easy Walk Down to the Beach. Pool, Parking and WiFi

The apartment is a brand new flat situated in 'Los Altos de las Maravillas', a small development situated at the top of the old town overlooking the bay of La Herradura and is just a short walk (450 metres) from the charming beach of this laid back Spanish coastal town. The accommodation is equipped to a high standard and is ideal for a couple, being spacious and offering an excellent level of comfort and privacy. It has a large double bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and a sitting room that leads on to a large and sunny terrace, orientated in a south west direction. Guests will be delighted with the quality of the interior, but what makes the accommodation Opazo Beach View special is the large terrace and the view - it is all about the view! La Herradura is a delightful place for a holiday at all times of the year. Much quieter than its more famous neighbouring town of Nerja it has a genuine Spanish feel to it and has a number of bars, restaurants and beach eateries that are open all year. It is situated at one end of the Cerro Gordo Natural Park, a beautiful stretch of protected coastline, outstanding for its natural habitat and picturesque scenery. It makes an ideal base to explore the inland coastal area of the Almijarra Natural Park and the delightful towns of Frigiliana, Cómpeta, Almuñecar and Salobreña. Visits to Granada and the fabulous Alhambra palace are easily managed as part of a day's excursion, and from December to April a day trip to the Sierra Nevada ski resort is very possible. Locally you can enjoy sports such as scuba diving, windsurfing, dinghy sailing and paragliding, or just enjoy soaking up the sun from one of the choice of beaches in the area, whether the town beach of la Herradura with it palm trees, the charming beach situated close to the Marina del Este, or the undeveloped coastline of the Cerro Gordo with is hidden coves where naturist bathing is permitted.

Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

We have lived in Spain since 2003, at Cortijo Opazo, which is located up in the mountains of Las Alpujarras, but not too far from La Herradura (about 80 minutes in car). Over the years we have got to know the area and have explored the coastline, from east to west. In our opinion La Herradura is the best location to be found between Almeria and Malaga, very Spanish, warm and friendly and in an area of extreme natural beauty. This is why we have chosen to invest in our third property rental, so we now offer coastal and mountain destinations.

Most of our time is spent working in our garden at Cortijo opazo, but when we want to relax, then La Herradura and Opazo Beach View is where we go.

Wonderful holiday in a superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

Opazo Beach in La Herradura is a lovely apartment with everything you could wish for.... and more besides.

It is located at the top of the old town in a peaceful residential area.

The property is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. There is a large balcony with superb views of the bay.. It is perfect for relaxing, sunbathing, eating out,.

We really enjoyed watching the stunning sunsets as we drank a glass or two of wine. Perfect.!

La Herradura is a lovely unspoilt laid back Spanish seaside town. There is a good range of eateries, small supermarkets, market.

There are good walks, beautiful coastline and mountains - a perfect base for exploring this lovely area of Spain

Wonderfull Holiday appartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all we expected and more. The sea views were stunning and the owner Robert was extremely helpful and easy to contact. The rooms were spotless and it has two toilet/shower rooms.. Although high up in the back of the town the sea front was easy to reach via steps down from nearby. On the sea front there are many restaurants and bars. Also mini supermarkets with a wide selection of British and Spanish produce. Eating out on the balcony was an unforgettable experience and an overhead canopy could be used to protect from the sun when needed. There is excellent parking facilities in the basement of the apartments and were very secure. All in all a holiday to be warmly remembered. I would highly recommend booking this apartment for a peaceful luxury break.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is wonderful the only thing it was missing is air conditioning a real must in the summer months !! A very hilly steep walk back up from the town but a very quick drive down to the town . Would definitely stay again !!!

Owner's Response: We are pleased you liked the flat and that all was in perfect order for you. It is true there are a few weeks when air conditioning would be a bonus and this is in hand for next year. Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments.

Very smart apartment, amazing view, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time in La Herradura. Opazo beach view is a really nice apartment, clean, tidy, comfortable, spacious, with amazing views from the balcony. The beach is very close and other towns and beaches are easily accessible if you hire a car.

Great apartment but be aware of the location

  • 4 of 5

Really bright and light modern apartment with all the necessary benefits for enjoying your stay.

Very clean and well presented with a large terrace overlooking the town and out to the sea.

Directions and access to the property well organised by Robert.

Having visited La Herradura many times over the years, we enjoy the local restaurants and they continue to improve.

My only caveat is that the compromise for outstanding views is the steep steps down to the town if you don't want to drive. They are a challenge for the not so fit or able.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you found the standard of the accommodation was good and that the views are everything they promised to be. The beach is only 450 metres from the flat and the town is closer, and whilst there are various routes you can take, each one of them is steep in places. Its position at the top of the old town ensures not only excellent views but a good degree of peace and quiet away from any noise generated by the ever improving selection of bars and restaurants.

An Amazing View and the Apartment was All You Need

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days over Easter enjoying this beautiful part of the Costa del Sol. La Herradura is a tourist town with a village feel. The apartment is in the older part of town which gives it a great atmosphere. You can drive to town but I'd recommend wandering down the (many) steps and getting to know the area.

Samana Santa in this village was very special. The Good Friday procession started around 10:30 at night and wove it's way through the narrow streets. It was interesting to watch the float bearers maneuver around corners. Watching the many villagers taking part in the candle lit procession gives you an appreciation for daily life here.

The apartment was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. In our experience one of the better rentals we have had. There is a booklet with the answers to all your questions but the owners will answer email promptly.

There are some good hikes in the area. It is a good location to visit the Sierra Nevada Park as well.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you had a good stay in our accommodation at La Herradura, and that the walk down to the seafront via the narrow streets of the old town was a positive experience for you - it's good to get the heart beating during this relatively short distance! Thank you for taking the time to share your holiday comments.

Location

From the Owner

We really like this town, it is easy to get to, has a good selection of bars and restaurants, the town is right on this great beach but it seldom feels busy or 'packed out'. We thought about buying in Nerja or one of the other towns, but our heart wasn't in it, La Herradura is where we want to be when not up in the mountains.
