Property description

This is one of the best and most privileged locations on the Med! A few minutes drive east of Almunecar brings you to Playa Galera in the village of Taramay. From the pretty gardens you have private access to the sandy beach! **No road to cross**. No traffic noise.
There is a large well kept swimming pool in the garden, a great balcony (25sqm) for private lounging and eating. The views are spectacular!
Garage parking too. You won't find a 2 bedroom seafront apartment in the area that compares to the location, facilities, standard, and rates of our unique holiday home. Sunbathe, swim and relax or if you prefer a more active holiday try out the beach activities or the Golf at Salobrena 15 mins drive - skiing in Sierra Nevada just an hour away - hiking or mountain biking - Bike Park 5 mins cycle, Sierra de Cazorla 15 minutes drive - Sightseers can visit the lovely white villages, the Alhambra Palace or the Caves of Nerja.

Almunecar: is a holiday resort town with its own Roman aqueduct. The interesting seafront promenade is divided into many sections by the small coves and headlands that are typical of this part of the Costa Tropical. There are many restaurants and beaches but it is much more than this. History buffs will enjoy the Moorish castle, the Roman factory, the Moroccan built tourist office and newly excavated Phoenician ruins. Shoppers won't want to miss the Friday morning flea market where you can find everything from imitation Levis to hand crafted pottery. The municipal market (el mercado) in the centre of town is open every morning except Sunday and there you can find produce, fish, meat, flowers, teas and spices.

The Costa Tropical:
It is not nearly so well known as the neighbouring Costa Del Sol to the west.The Costa Tropical is picturesque and you will find it far easier to get away from the crowds. The mountains run right down to the sea and the coastline is typically a series of coves and promontories. A few minutes drive away is the white village of Salobrena and La Herradura to the west is pretty and unspoilt and located between the two attractive promontories of Punta De La Mona and Cerro Gordo. Nearby, in a protected cove east of Punt De La Mona is the impressive Marina del Este yacht harbour. Water sports and scuba diving are popular in the area, thanks to the variety of sea life and clarity of the water. Would you like to include some excursions? Day trips possible to Nerja, Granada, Ronda, Cordoba, Seville, Gibraltar and more.

Playa Galera:
Playa Galera was built by a well known Spanish architect and is an impressive sight, it is low-rise with, pergolas, chimneys and turrets of blue, white and terracotta. Very Mediterranean, and very different from the usual plain blocks to be seen on the costas. Once you have been, you will want to return to holiday here again and again just like our other returning guests.
Parents love it because it is safe, secure and private with remote control entry to the grounds. They like the relaxing atmosphere and the touch of exclusivity. Couples like it because of its romantic, peaceful setting on the beach. Everyone loves the nearby restaurants, beach cafes and the little village shop . Almunecar is great for evening walks - shopping, sundowners, restaurants and tapas bars. There is a water park a 5 min drive from Playa Galera and in Almunecar there are discos and clubs for the night owls amongst you.

Other Amenities

  • The view out to sea from the lounge is spectacular, even from the moment you enter the apartment. The terrace is large and comfortable and great for eating, sunbathing or just sitting and taking in the view. Designed to be shaded in mid summer and to catch the sun during the cooler months it is always comfortable which is helped by the marble floors throughout. The location of the apartment means you can leave the windows and balcony doors open at all times and hear the sea and catch the breezes. Very special. Although situated near to the town the apartment is in a quiet area away from the main throng and directly adjacent to a pretty unspoiled cove. Good quality furnishings, linen and equipment have been provided. The whole apartment is clean modern and bright....moreless

Car: Recommended

The province of Granada is in Andalucia and the town of Almunecar is on the Costa Tropical. It is a traditional Spanish town - a holiday resort by the sea. The apartment at Playa Galera is located 2 miles along the coast from the centre of Almunecar on the Costa Tropical in the village of Taramay. We have the best of both worlds, away from the throng but within easy reach. The apartment is an easy drive from Malaga or Granada Airports. Either one just about an hour away. A must-see is of course the Alhambra in Granada. Our holiday home is east of Malaga and the Costa Del Sol. Just a bit further on from Nerja and before you get to Salobrena passing nearby La Herradura on the way. We provide a friendly meet and greet service to help you settle in quickly. The Costa Tropical boasts a micro climate making it warmer during the winter months and producing an abundance of mangos, papayas, avocados and other exotic fruits..

Golf: The Los Moriscos Golf Course has 9 holes which are combined to create an 18-hole round with a total distance of 5,072 metres. Like the vast majority of golf courses, Los Moriscos lies in spectacularly beautiful countryside: its level grass is dotted with slender palm trees which give an inexplicable sensation of peace and serenity, with the sound of the waves of the Mediterranean washing against shore just a few metres from the start of the course. .

The course, designed by Ibergolf and Manuel Piñero, opened in 1974 and is mainly flat. However the large greens, two lakes, palm trees, sugar cane and the abundance of exotic fruit plantations, including papaya and mango, ensure that playing golf here is interesting; and with all these natural hazards, challenging too. An unbelievable setting for a game of golf where you will thoroughly enjoy the contrast provided by the views of the sea and the Sierra Nevada mountain range.


Owner info

About the owner: Our home base is in South Wales in the UK but we travel considerably for work purposes. We have three grown up children who are based in and around Bristol, UK.

Why the Owner Chose Costa Tropical and Granada Province:
We chose Taramay so that the children could ski in the winter in the Sierra Nevadas while non skiers could enjoy the sunny coast. Though these days we seem to enjoy lounging by the pool far more than anything more exerting!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It lifts your spirits the minute you walk in and see the view in front of you.
