Buon rapporto prezzo/prestazioni casa spaziosa con vista spettacolare sul golfo
Per concedere la quinta stella ci sarebbe voluto un tavolo da 8 in terrazza per poter mangiare tutti insieme e qualche sistemata alle serrature dei bagni.
Nice house with great views of La Herradura
The house is roomy and well equipped. The views from the kitchen and the balconies are spectacular and the living area is spacious and comfortable. The fittings and furniture in the house are of a high standard - nice TVs, kitchen equipment and comfortable beds. It's a very pleasant place to spend a holiday. I'm happy to recommend it.
The pool is large and was never crowded when we were there. A car is necessary.
The agent (Rachel) who dealt with us was very professional and helpful.
Thankyou for your kind review of our beautiful home in La Herradura.
The views are indeed very special and are the main reason we chose this property. From the elevated terraces the mountain and sea views along this beautiful coastal section of Spain are truly stunning.
We are pleased that you found the house to be nicely furnished and inclusive of all you could need during your holiday.
But we are especially happy to be able to share our lovely home with travellers who enjoy it so much.
Thankyou also for leaving the house clean and tidy on your departure.

Magnifica casa e increíbles vistas!!
Excelentes instalaciones en urbanización muy tranquila, donde pudimos disfrutar de unos días de piscina y padel. La casa es muy amplia y cómoda, tan solo deberían dotar a la casa de televisión en español, ya que solo vimos canales por satélite de toda Europa menos de de España. Seguro que repetiremos!!

Dear Bob and Joyce,
Thankyou for your review. It is pleasing that we continue to maintain our perfect 5-star rating from all of our guests - meaning that everyone is enjoying our house and its many features, including the spaciousness, the quality of furnishings and inclusions, the wonderful terraces and certainly the magical views over the mountains and the bay.
The location of the house is ideal being just a little away from the township to avoid the crush but close enough to easily access the great bars, restaurants, markets, shopping and tourist activities by car. And everyone enjoys the serenity of our two terraces overlooking the majestic views!
We thank you for staying at our house and we appreciated you leaving it clean and tidy upon your departure. We will happily welcome you back again should you wish to stay in La Herredura in the future.

In one of the highest seaside vantage points overlooking the horseshoe bay of La Herredura, (the tourism gateway to the Costa Tropical), our house is adjacent to the Cerro Gordo National Park and offers magnificent views of the nearby mountain ranges and expansive Mediterranean sea views.
The unspoilt, Andalusia-style village of La Herredura lies between the coastal resort town of Nerja (a holiday hotspot, famous for its subterranean caves) and the historic town of Almunecar (founded by the Phoenicians over 3000 years ago) with its cobbled streets, a Moorish castle and busy urban centre .
The shoreline of La Herredura forms one of the most attractive bays along the southern coast of Spain, with its two large natural promontories, the Punta de la Mona and Cerro Gordo, protecting a beautiful 2km-long sandy beach.
Easily accessible for visiting tourists, La Herredura is just 70km east of Malaga, from where coaches to La Herredura depart regularly. Granada is just 85km north.
Golf: The nearest golf course is Los Moriscos Club de Golf located on the beach front near Motril, some 25km to the east of La Herradura. With 18 hole course, driving range, clubhouse and restaurant facilities the course was founded in 1974 and has a well established membership. The course is relatively flat terrain with two lakes and is rated at Par 70 with an overall length of 5702 metres from the men's tees. All rental equipment is available including electric carts.

Ski: The ski areas of the Sierra Nevada National Park are a winter wonderland which is easily accessed from La Herredura. Interestingly, at certain times of the year, it is possible spend the morning snow skiing and then drive back to the coast for an afternoon on the beach, due to the unique geography of the coastal region that forms a micro-climate insulated from extreme cold.
