Villa Costa Tropical
La Herradura, Spain
Villa Costa Tropical is a wonderful, beautifully appointed property directly overlooking the sea and is set in an exclusive bay that takes the name of the town, La Herradura, ‘Horseshoe’ in Spanish, and describes the shape of the bay the villa is overlooking. With more than 320 sunny days every year, you will enjoy a stay in a unique and heavenly destination all year around.
Calmness, serenity and privacy are just a few of the elements that define this exclusive property set among forested hillsides and the edges of a secluded beach. Villa Tropical is a mordern property situated along the Costa Tropical, a relaxed coastal region in Andalusia. The property has an area of 4300 square feet (400m2) on three floors, with a spacious living room that offers views of the sea and the coast and equipped with a fireplace to create a cosy atmosphere and connected to the dining room. When it is time to rest, retreat into the four bedrooms which offer queen beds and three bathrooms. Part of the magic of your experience at Villa Costa Tropical, is having a drink along the poolside while watching the sunset from the external pool that extend views from the mountains down to the sea and incredible views of Almuñécar in the distance.
For nature lovers, Almuñécar is located on a natural plateau, a unique area in Spain, which is known for its long beaches, warm climate and lush tropical and subtropical vegetation. Enjoy the large range of water sports activities that includes diving courses, sailing, windsurfing, snorkelling and jet skiing, as well as the ones in the mountains such as hiking, mountain biking or paragliding.
A short drive away from the Villa Costa Tropical, don't miss to visit the traditional Andalusian villages in the surroundings, like the white-washed village of Frigiliana, regularly cited as being the most beautiful village in Andalusia, where every corner is decorated with bougainvillea, geraniums and jasmine. About 10 minutes away from your property is located Nerja, famous for its charm, with whitewashed houses and narrow streets that lead to the iconic landmark Balcony of Europe, which offers spectacular panoramic views of the whole coast. Stretching for almost 3 miles (5-kilometres) the Nerja Caves are a series of underground caverns that contain the largest stalagmite in the world and that have been classed as a ‘Good of Cultural Interest’.
The location of the Villa Tropical is ideally situated halfway between Granada and Malaga and provides easy access to the cities and the best attractions the region offers. Málaga is home to some of Andalusia’s greatest historical monuments, such as the Gibralfaro castle, from where it is possible to enjoy a great view over the city, the port with its playa de la Malagueta and the 19th-century bullring. The bullring of Malaga and the bullfighters dressed in costumes inspired Pablo Picasso's masterpieces that you can admire in the Museum of Picasso. No visit to Málaga would be complete without a visit to El Pimpi, one of the city’s oldest and most-loved places in the city facing the Alcazaba fortress, the best-preserved Moorish citadel in Spain.
Granada is a city that will captivate all your senses, and you will be amazed by the most visited monument in Spain, the Alhambra, of indescribable beauty. Its palaces, towers, royal apartments and gardens show the splendour that Granada attained during the Nasrid dynasty. Walk down Paseo de los Tristes is one of the experiences you cannot miss, cross one of the stone bridges over the he River Darro and stroll around the city centre. Here are the Cathedral with the Royal chapel and the Bañuelo, one of the most complete and preserved ancient Arab bath in Spain. Complete your exploration of Granada and explore the old neighbourhoods of the Albaycin and Sacromonte, overlooking the Alhambra with the incredible Sierra Nevada in the background.
With Villa Costa Tropical, feel all the traditions of Andalusia, between sea and mountains.
