Beautiful Townhouse With Stunning Views. 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sun Terrace



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
House in Almunecar, Costa Tropical, Spain - In An Elevated Position, Just 1.5K To The Nearest Beach And Restaurants, 2 Panoramic Pools

This is a lovely and high quality 3 bedroom house in Fuentes - above the typically Spanish beachfront town of Almunecar, on the Costa Tropical with 2 stunning pools and panoramic views. The house is very well equipped with all modern appliances and WiFi is available. It is a beautiful and very spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (plus additional WC) with a large sun terrace. You will have stunning mountain and sea views from your lounge, terrace and bedroom and be able to enjoy a choice of 2 swimming pools both with stunning views of the coast and mountains set above the traditional Spanish town of Almunecar. The Costa Tropical is the lesser know part and more typically Spanish part of the Andalucian coast, just along the bay from Nerja. Still traditionally Spanish, Almuncar boasts a lovely meandering old town with a Moorish castle and has a buzzing atmosphere with many tapas bars and boutiques. The house is just a few minutes away from many beautiful beaches. From tiny coves to long expanses, some served by ''Chiringuitos''(beach bars) and some secluded, there's something for all beach-lovers tastes. In the evening you can dine in one of many waterside restaurants along the beachfront or enjoy the atmosphere of the old town's hustle and bustle - from basic Spanish tapas bars to some of the best seafood restaurants on the coast. Or, if you prefer to relax ''at home'', the spacious terrace has a large built-in barbeque, comfortable table and chairs with stunning views across the mountains and towards the coast. The house is less than 1 hour's drive from both Malaga and Granada airports. A car is recommended to reach the property and to get around, particularly on warm summer days when the walk back from the nearest beaches or the centre of town, although not very far, is uphill and can be a challenge in the heat!! Beach lovers will be spoilt for choice and those who appreciate the heritage of Spain will love ancient Granada and its world famous Alhambra, the unspoilt white pueblos and many places of interest. Nature lovers are just minutes away from the natural park of Pena Escrita, the beautiful, unspoilt promontory of Cerro Gordo and superb walking in the Alpujarras.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Very good

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good stay at this property. The listing was accurate as were the pictures. The property was very clean and had excellent facilities - all the white goods seemed new. It was very spacious. The owner was very easy to contact and answered all our questions promptly and provided excellent directions to get there. We would recommend the property. The pool was particularly good it was very clean and well maintained and even had a lifeguard. There were loungers and parasols available. The only drawback in our view to this property was that it was a bit of a hike to the beach and even more so to the centre of town. You definitely need a car for this location and I wouldn't have thought it was suitable for elderly people as the house is on three floors.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, delighted you had a good time. Just to clarify on the distances, it's only 1km from the nearest beach and a 10-15min walk downhill, but I appreciate the walk back uphill is more strenuous! The walk into the centre is longer, but quite nice along the promenade all the way? We then used to get a taxi back - about 7€. Thanks again, you and your family would be very welcome back any time! Steve

A lovely house in beautiful location. The house is modern with large rooms and everything you could need. The owners have equipped it with quality furniture and kitchen equipment. The balcony has a built in BBQ overlooking the hills. The view is stunning and we spent hours sipping wine watching the view. The pool areas - there are two - are immaculate. Again the views from each are so beautiful. The location is very peaceful and idyllic. We loved it and will definitely go back to this house. There is parking outside. The beach is a short walk downhill - a little steep on way back! Locally there are dozens of restaurants and tapas bars that serve delicious food. The two on the local beach are fab and we rarely went anywhere else. The town centre is packed with quirky boutiques. Shoes, clothes, perfumes, furniture and gifts all more reasonable in price than UK or nearer to Malaga. The late night shopping one Saturday until 2am was amazing the whole town was buzzing with dancing and music. Overall it's a lovely place for couples or families. If you want nightclubs and all day English breakfasts don't come here. This place is unspoiled by tourism and feels very Spanish but you can get by without speaking Spanish but the locals are patient if you try 😎

From the Owner

I chose the Almunecar area because although it has all the amenities you want from a great Mediterranean holiday - great weather, beaches and food it still retains its 'Spanishness'. It is a real Spanish town 12 months of the year. You've the option of scoffing free tapas with the locals in a local bar or enjoying fine dining at the Marina. And everything in between! The location is perfect all the local amenities on your doorstep and you can be in there less than an hour from getting in your car at Malaga airport. You can be in the glorious city of Granada within the hour.

Activity and Interests


Almunecar is a treat for beach lovers. Just over 1 km away are the local beaches of Velilla, Pozuelo and Tesorillo. Then there is Puerta del Mar and San Cristobel in Almunecar itself, and then Playa Cabria and La Herradura as you head towards the west including the Playa Cantarriján (nudist beach). Go just 15 min by car east and you reach the gorgeous town of Salobrena with it's long beach and glorious sunsets. You'll find many chiringuitos (beach bars) to relax and eat in.


Malaga is the closest airport. It is just under 80km to the house. The journey takes less than an hour by car and is motorway almost all the way.


Salobrena (15m) - a whitewashed township clinging to huge rock just back from the shoreline, topped by a Moorish castle and surrounded by lush sugar cane plantations.

Nerja (30m) - a lovely popular resort famous for its Balcon de Europa and beautiful beaches. The Nerja caves are on the outskirts and the attractive white village of Frigiliana lies just above.

Granada(60m) - the classic monumental cities of Andalucia its most precious jewel is the Alhambra. A visit here should not be missed

Further Details:

Almunecar is a traditional Spanish town on the unspoilt coast of the Costa Tropical. Almunecar town with its many tapas bars, restaurants and shops is just a 5 min drive away (20 min walk). There are plenty of nearby supermarkets and banks.

Founded by the Phoenicians almost 3000 years ago, Almunecar and its handsome Moorish castle sit on a small hill between the mouths of two rivers - the Río Seco and the larger Río Verde.

To the west of the town lies the Punta de la Mona, a pine-clad headland sheltering the attractive Marina del Este marina - a water sports base.

The most attractive part of Almunecar is the old pueblo Simply wander around its streets filled with boutiques and tapas bars and take in the maze of narrow passageways. Visit the old Moorish castle and gardens.

Both Almunecar and La Herradura offer a wide selection of restaurants of varying categories and styles. Many are located on the beach or near the beach fronts.

The beautiful bay of La Herradura is the envy of Almunecar and one of the prettiest bays along the south coast of Spain, and boasts a 2 km long sand beach. The village presents a typical aspect of whitewashed buildings climbing the gentle slopes of a small hill leading up from the beach.

Marking the western boundary of the town is the huge promontory of Cerro Gordo which stands alongside the bay of La Herradura. It has been declared a municipal park that's protected against development. A short hike rewards walkers with magnificent views

Almunecar has a waterpark which opens during the summer months, tennis courts at Velilla and Horse riding at Taramay. There is a dive school at the Marina and a paragliding centre.

For walkers there is the natural park of Pena Escrita, or the Alpujarras, the lower foothills of the Sierra Nevada famous for its walks.

From the Owner

You'll probably find the house more spacious and better fitted out than you might expect. That's because it wasn't bought to rent, but to be a second home for me and my family. I'm a sucker for beautiful views, that's why I chose this particular location in Almunecar. It's at the highest part of the town and there's nowhere with a more spectacular panorama.
