About the property

Apartment in Albunol, Nr. Castell De Ferro, Costa Tropical, Spain - Beautiful Setting, Overlooking Traditional Spanish Town And La Contraviesa Mountains,

If you want to experience the unspoilt, traditional feel of rural Spain, with church bells ringing, cocks crowing in the morning and free tapas, this is the place for you!! If you want fish & chips, Benny Hill Bar & Bingo, sadly this is NOT the place for you!!!!! Modern, contemporary apartment, on a small complex built in 2008, situated overlooking the traditional Spanish town of Albunol and La Contraviesa Mountain Range. Shared swimming pool and 10 mins drive to the nearest beach, however there are numerous beaches for you to sample along the Costa Tropical coastline. A perfect base for a family vacation to Southern Spain, superbly located to explore the beautiful region of Andalucía. Situated at the foot of the Alpujarras Mountains, South of the Sierra Nevada, the Costa Tropical, known as the 'greenhouse' of Spain for its yearly average temperatures of 27 degrees, is bathed by the Mediterranean Sea. The apartment will sleep up to a maximum of 6 people, however its is ideal for a family or group of 4. Casa Teal an anagram of our Names Tilly, Ethan, Amy & Lee, is close to our hearts , as we have enjoyed many a happy holiday there.

The quiet, sleepy, traditional Spanish village of Albunol offers some bars and restaurants, is a 5 minute walk from the apartment, although a 15 minute walk back, due to its position on top of a hill and the very low priced drinks!! The Region is one of the last in Spain to still offer free 'tapas' when purchasing a drink. The village itself also offers a range of shops, banks & local services. This spacious accommodation is offered on a self catering basis and is a 10 minute drive to the nearest beach of La Rabita.

About Lee McIver

I live with my wife and 2 kids in England. A few years back some friends of ours bought a property in this part of Spain and we would holiday with them. We feel in love with the place and wanted a place in the Sun, that we could call home.

We have used the place at least once a year, more often twice per year.

This year we decided to start to rent out the property.

Hope you love the place as much as we do.

If you have an questions, please dont hesitate to contact me.

Happy holidays!

Why Lee McIver chose Albuñol

The property is located in the heart of Andalucia, it remains traditionally spanish and has not been ruined by commercialisation.

Free tapas are served in the bars, when you purchase a drink.

It is situated in the mountains, but is only a 10 mins drive to the nearest beach. The views are stunning, especially the sunsets, whilst sipping a gin and tonic relaxing on the balcony. You stare right at La Contraviesa mountain range and to the left is the beach resort of La Rabita.

It has a swimming pool. with kids that's an essential!!

What makes this apartment unique

It has a lovely swimming pool, where the kids spend most of their time!!

There are lots of beaches along the coast to explore.

It is based in a working town, so no matter when you go there is always life. We didnt want a property on a purpose built complex, as out of season, they are souless and like ghost towns.

There lots to see and do: golf, go-karting, fishing, water parks, walking, cycling, wetern village and the more commercialised resort of Roquetas De Mar is only 45 mins drive away, if you want that.

Over the years we have used as a base and explored many parts of Spain.

Excellent Spanish Apartment in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous stay in this lovely apartment. The apartment was extremely clean and had everything we needed. BBQs on the balcony having G&T watching the sun go down was our favourite time. The pool was clean and very refreshing in the hot sun. The location of the apartment was ideal to get to many local beaches most of had beach restaurants selling tapas and local brews. The local town was very friendly and had many bars which served drinks and free tapas. It is also in an excellent location for Malaga and Almeria airports. Well worth a visit.........
