The neighbourhood

The house sits on the hill overlooking Cotobro bay and is surrounded by stunning planting, beautiful flowers and trees adorn the area. It is truly gorgeous. Cotobro beach is in a secluded bay, with calm protected waters that make it ideal for children. If you are lucky you can watch dolphins swim past at different times of the year.

Almunecar is a wonderful place to base yourself, it offers numerous water sports, hiking, cycling, paragliding. There are many walks close by taking you to breathtaking places. With over 19 kilometres of local coastline you will be at a loss to choose which one of the 25 beaches to choose from. The old town is Medieval in origin with steep winding streets, full of shops bars and lovely places to eat which lead up to the Moorish castle. It is hard to get a drink without a free accompanying tapas. Culturally rich and historically fascinating there are many things to discover .The Costa Tropical is named after its tropical climate so the fruit and vegetables are grown extensively in the area, avocados mangoes and the famous Cherimoyas and papayas are common place.

Granada offers skiing and Motril has a lovely golf course. The drive is an easy one or you can take a bus from the bus station at little expense.

We have tourist information in the house so that you can plan what you might like to do when you stay. There is something for everyone in this beautiful part of Andalusia.

Getting around

We recommend a car which you can put safely in the private garage. There is a bus down the hill to take you into the old town which costs a euro. Taxis are affordable and we can recommend some reliable drivers to you for your stay.

There is also a bus station were you can take day trips to Granada to see the Alhambra palace. Nerja Caves. Sierra Nevada national park and many more places further afield such as Seville Ronda etc.

You can also charter boats to take you around the various bays. Travelling is easy here and not expensive.

Other things to note

We may have to come to the house to clean the pool during your stay and to care for the plants. We will always arrange this with you before we do this as we respect your privacy.

About The Owner

We are Swedish friends with teenage children who are delighted to offer our holiday home to Owners Direct guests.

As a family we all enjoy the outdoor life and Andalusia is rich in places to hike and cycle. There are many activities such as scuba diving, jet skiing, sailing and tennis close by. The location is perfect to go Skiing in the Sierra Nevada and to play Golf in Motril. The airports of Malaga and Granada are just over an hour away so it is an easy journey to get here. There are interesting historical sites and many cultural activities through out the year to experience. Music is an important part of life here with traditional festivals throughout the year. Semana Santa ( Easter week) is incredible. The food is fresh and delicious with free tapas to be enjoyed at the many bars and restaurants. There is always something to excite the mind and spirit. We will leave information in the house for your stay so that you can decide weather you want to be active or just relax and enjoy the space and peace and quiet that the house has to offer. Our property Manager Sara will meet and greet you when you arrive to make sure you are happy. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we all do. Thank you, El cuatro olivos.

Why The Owner chose Almuñécar

We fell in love with the house because of its breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding tropical location and of course the swimming pool. As the house has two separate apartments the children can use the downstairs accomodation and have their own space , while the four adults can have fun in the main part of the house.

What makes this villa unique

We have mentioned the benefits we find in the property above, the pool and the many terraces and views make this a lovely place to spend time in. We are happy to share our house with our guests and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday, 5 adults and 3 toddlers in our party. The villa was very clean and tidy with a very well equipped kitchen, like home from home. Plenty of entertainment, TV, DVD player with a variety of DVD's, books, boxed games or cards. Also Wifi is available at the villa. Brilliant views. So much space at the villa, you could relax in so many different places finding shade or sun. The pool was a great place to relax and big enough for all. As advised it is on a hill so a car is a necessity. The property has a spacious single garage. The agents were very friendly, informative and helpful.

We thoroughly recommend this villa for family holidays
