A beautiful apartment in the "chic" district of Cotobro, Almuñcar which can be found in the Costa Tropical area of Andalucia where the average daytime winter temperature rarely drops below 18°C and reaches well into the 30's over the summer months.
The apartment "Los Cipreses", is located just 50m from the beach and comes with two bedrooms and two bathrooms together with a kitchen, lounge/dining area and a stunning 35m² terrace with some of the most amazing sea views across Cotobro bay and Marina del Este. The property is air conditioned throughout (with heating and cooling facility) making it an ideal apartment for year round use.
The modern kitchen comes fully fitted with an electric hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery, glassware, pots/pans etc and a Dolce Gusto Coffee maker.
The kitchen leads to an open plan lounge/dining area with a table and chairs. This follows through to the spacious lounge area where you find a 43" smart TV with the availability of local Spanish channels, an Android viewing box giving access to UK, continental/worldwide channels and there is a satellite receiver for Polish TV channels. FREE Wi-Fi is available and there is a Bluetooth tower speaker which will allow you to listen to your favourite music off your iPod/phone/mp3.
The first bedroom has a double bed and boasts stunning sea views and comes with wardrobe and dressing table. The second bedroom as two single beds together with a chest of draws. The wardrobe is located opposite. It also has its own en suite bathroom.
The covered 35m² terrace is accessed from either the lounge or master bedroom where you will find a stone dining table and a gas BBQ. Perfect for dining 'al fresco'. There are also two sun loungers and, of course, some of the most stunning sea views that you are likely to see!
There is also a baby high chair, travel cot and baby bath.
There are two bathrooms and both have shower/wash basin/toilet.
Outside is the utility room where you will find the automatic washing machine.
There is a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, guide book to Almuñecar and the surrounding area and and for your safety there are smoke/fire detectors throughout.
On your arrival, there will be a welcome pack to greet you with all the "essentials" required to get your stay off to a fantastic start.
The apartment also comes with a shared parking space.
Cotobro itself is a great place to "get away from it all" and really relax. There is a sandy beach and promenade and a restaurant and bar. A short walk along the seafront, with it's spectacular views, and you reach Almuñecar itself with a choice of restaurants and bars. Alternatively, there is a bus stop located on the promenade just below the apartment and this will take you into Almñecar and the surrounding towns and villages.
Almuñecar life definitely revolves around fish and seafood and the town dates back to 800 BC and the Phoenecians. Later it came under Roman control, Arabic rule before coming under Christian control in the 1500's. Evidence of the history is visible everywhere, even in Cotobro. With Roman remains, the stunning Roman aqueduct, the fish salting factory and the Moorish Castle. On reaching the cobbled streets of the 'Old Town', it is like stepping back in time. It's narrow streets are filled with quaint shops, fantastic restaurants and genuine tapas bars (where a tapas is free with every drink!) and if you love seafood, then it's definitely for you. In addition, you will find the local fresh food market which is open six days a week. On Fridays there is also a 'general market' and on Sundays there is a 'car boot sale'.
In the summer months, the Aqua Park is open together with other nautical pastimes such as jet-ski's, diving, pedalo's etc which are available along the beachfront. There are also the aquarium, tropical gardens, castle and museums which are all worth a visit.
Of course, no review of Almuñecar could be complete without mentioning the fiesta's and festivals. From the 'Semana Santa' processions at Easter, the 'San Miguel' fiesta in the Old Town in September and biggest one of all, 'La Fiesta de la Virgen de la Antigua' on 15th August, which boasts one of the biggest firework displays in Europe (and a whole host of others throughout the year) and not forgetting the "Jazz en la Costa" festival each July. There is clearly always plenty going on!
Almuñecar is also the perfect base from which explore other areas of Andalucia. Grandada and the Alhambra Palace is only an hour away and you can be skiing in Sierra Nevada in less than an hour-and-a-half. It is possible to ski in the morning and catch up on year tan on the beach in the afternoon! The Alpujarras are also a must! With some of the most stunning and individual villages that you will ever see including Trvelez, the highest village in mainland Spain. The Serrano ham factories here are worth a tour.
For most, a car will be useful if you wish to get about. However, Almunecar is accesible by bus from Malaga Airport (via Malaga Bus Station). If you require any help with transport please contact us and we will be able to advise you. Home delivery of shooping from the local supermarket is straight forward. Please contact us for more details.
IMPORTANT - Although you are able to park very close to the apartment, there still a few steep steps to negotiate to get to the apartment itself. Please take this into consideration.

About Ryszard & Ewa Cygan
We first came on holiday to Almunecar in 2009 and immediately fell in love with the town, the people, Andalucia and the Spanish way of life. We had only come for a week and before we left, we had purchased our first property in the town! Since then, we have spent all the time possible here, together with our children Ola & Adam (who are rather grown-up now yet still love coming here!). Ryszard & Ewa
Ryszard & Ewa Cygan purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Ryszard & Ewa Cygan chose Almuñécar
Having walked through the door of "Los Cipreses" for the first time in October 2015, we were all in awe at the amazing location, but in particular, the stunning views. Located in tropical gardens yet just 50 metres from the beach, the location is pretty unique and it offers itself as a fantastic holiday location. Cotobro is found on the outskirts of Almunecar which means that you can really "get away from it all" yet still have everything you need within a short walking distance.
What makes this Apartment unique
It has always been our intention to provide our guests with a unique and special holiday experience and hence why the property is finished to the highest standards with attention to the smallest detail. We have our property managers Gordon & Louisa who will be in touch prior to holiday, will "meet and greet" you when you arrive and will also be available 24/7 throughout your stay to ensure that you have the best possible experience in Almunecar.
