2 Bedroom apartment, sleeps 4.

Beach front 2 bedroom apartment .Free wifi internet ,Situated in El Palo. This is a typical fisherman’s house divided into 2 apartments. The rental property is on the first floor.There is a small terrace on the first floor and the large roof terrace is on the second floor. The roof terrace belongs only to the apartment and is not shared.There are 2 good size bedrooms. One with a double bed and one with twin beds. There is air conditioning in both bedrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need.

T,V, in various languages available via internet t.v. box.

The apartment is right on the beach and you can sit on the terrace and watch the world go by. The area where the apartment is situated is not really a tourist area so there is not much English spoken. All the neighbours are very friendly. The waiters in the many restaurants and bars along the sea front do their best to try and understand what you say.A great chance to practice your spanish!

Transport: From the Airport you can reach the apartment by getting a bus into the center of Malaga then a second bus to El Palo.

A taxi can be booked to meet you at the airport if you wish..

If you hire a car you can usually find a parking space in the street if not directly outside the apartment then a little bit further down the road.

There are buses from El Palo into the city centre every 5 minutes during the day and after 11.30 at night buses run every 45minutes all through the night.

Beach: The beaches in front of the apartment are made up of little coves so ideal for children . El Palo and Pedregalejo beaches even though being very close to town have a unique character, they each have their bars and restaurants and both beaches are well maintained., every summer they celebrate the Virgin del Carmen (16th of July), patron saint of the fishermen, they take the Virgin out of her church and out to sea in a boat, while being followed in procession by the fishing boats. You can walk along the beaches of El Palo and Pedregalejo and continue your stroll till the Baños del Carmen and from there to the maritime promenade of Malaga that will lead you to the entrance of the park and from there to the town.Malaga city centre is the perfect place to explore the many historical monuments, atmospheric little streets and squares with delightful café culture.

Malaga: Malaga: . Malaga itself is a lovely old town with lots of charm. It has maintained its Spanish character. Apart from a huge cultural offering of concerts and theaters, there are many museums and art galleries, the most famous being the Picasso museum and the Center of Contemporary Art. Malaga is famous for its tapas bars in the historic center and its fried fish on the beaches, it also has a fabulous nightlife. You can stay here for months and won´t run out of things to do and places to explore. Granada and Ronda being one hour's drive away .

Language Schools: There are many Language schools in the Pedregalejo and El Palo area. The house is within walking distance of most of them

A lovely apartment for chilling out.

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment for just relaxing and enjoying Spanish Mediterranean culture. We cycled and walked to Rincon de la Victoria, a little town along the coast, and enjoyed walking into Malaga city which was about 70 minutes walk. We enjoyed trying out our poor Spanish in all the shops in the town of El Palo. Thanks you Carmen for your home and Barbara for organising it all.

Lively and quiet, sea and city

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the beginning of March staying in the apartment of Carmen. The sun was giving a lot of warmth already so we spent a lot of time on the flat roof, reading. The house is on the beach front, and at night you can fall asleep listening to the waves on the beach. I really liked the fact that although the city is near (both Malaga City and El Palo), and it is easy to reach supermarkets and restaurants, the house is in a quieter zone, and you can distance yourself easily on the roof from the buzz of the street. Highly recommended for those looking for the 'real' ;--) Spain: this is a part of the coast/city that is not crowded by tourists, but lived in by the Spaniards themselves.

The apartment is lovely, and very clean. The owners take good care of it. Thank you Isabel (daughter of Carmen) for your recommendations on places to eat out. Our flight left late on Saturday, and as there were no other tenants we were welcome to stay longer, which was very kind (thank you Barbara, for offering to ask). And many thanks Barbara for taking the time to send my cardigan, which I left behind!!! That was above and beyond the call of duty.

In short, we felft as if we stayed in a friends house. Welcome, and at home. Almost on the beach, in Spain! :--)

Sun, Sea and authentic Spain experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely week in the apartment of Carmen in El Palo district of Malaga :--) The weather was great (beginning of March) and the apartment (with the roof terrace) combines the 'buzz' of the lively neighborhood with the relaxation and tranquility offered by a location on the very outskirts of Malaga, next to the sea (bring your flip-flops!). Supermarkets are near, also bakeries and restaurants. Isabel (Carmen's daughter, Spanish speaker) and Barbara (native English speaker) were great hosts, and did their very best to help us in every way. Thank you again for your hospitality! :--)

Perfect low-key getaway

  • 5 of 5

The beach is gorgeous and relatively uncrowded.

The terrace in the featured photo is perfectly accurate, although the terrace itself is Spartan. More enchanting is the small, terrace (!) just below, one floor up from the street, with some of the most beautiful sunset and evening views east of Málaga.

The neighborhood restaurants are all family-owned, not fancy, but friendly, and (again) great bargains.

Carmen's flat was spacious, spotless, and well-appointed. Great beds! Barbara is a long-time Málaga UK expat who handled booking and welcome efficiently and *very* helpfully.

There are many shops and restaurants within a few blocks of Carment's place. Few of them cater to tourists, but there's excellent 24/7 bus service into downtown Málaga and its tourist attractions.

El Palo is a terrific bargain for laid-back travelers.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

A very nice and lovely stay with so much local atmosphere as you can get . Spacious appartment. Kitchen is super with all you need also a washing mascine . Superb placement for a Holiday with Beach and city combination. El palo area is great with good restaurants nearby. We were there in a very hot period and the aircondition in the 1 main bedroom isnt enough to cool Down the other bedroom with no aircon which only has a fan. Despite this we really had a fantastic stay and would be glad to return Again.

Lovely apartment in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this apartment. Everything you need is provided, even a beach umbrella and chairs to take to the beach a few steps away.

Barbara had a taxi organised to pick us up from the airport and same on departure.

Carmen and Isobel who live downstairs were so nice to us and made our stay a pleasure.

This apartment is perfect for both a beach and City holiday as It is in a quiet location to enjoy the sun and seaside and yet only 20 minutes by bus into Malaga.

We plan on returning soon to enjoy it all over again!

Thank you Isobel, Carmen and Barbara,

Ger and Siobhan
