We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this lovely apartment. Thank you to our hosts Colin and Deborah for lending us their much loved property. Our kids adored the plunge pool and the adults loved the many terraces to escape to for a quiet minute or two!! The views are fabulous. The walk up the hill would be quite challenging, hence we always took the car. It takes 3 mins to get into La Herradura by car, it's a traditional Spanish seaside town with many restaurants and a few small supermarkets. If you want something bigger or more 'touristy' head for Nerja, it's lovely and only 15 minutes away by car. There are lots of places to visit within an hour away from here, we did our research and spent many days out and about. To summarise, here are a few 'pros' points :- big, well equipped apartment just as advertised, fab snorkelling, busy but relaxed low key nightlife, many good restaurants, enough shops nearby for retail therapy, amazing weather. The 'cons' :- you have to go home (at some point) which is just rubbish !!!
