If you wish to rent a holiday apartment or villa this year you could do far worse than rent one in Calahonda on the Costa Del Sol, Spain. The resort nestles neatly between Fueringerola and Marbella.
The modern urbanisation of Calahonda flows from the coast to the undulating hills 300 metres above sea level. The height allows unrivalled panoramic views of the surrounding countryside running down to the sea and along the coast to Gibraltar and even Africa.
There is plenty to offer the visitor to this part of Spain. We can highly recommend staying at the luxurious Las Palmeras de Calahonda, an excellent choice if you are looking at kCalahonda apartments as they are a low rise apartment complex ,which certainly has the wow factor. Las Palmeras perches high on the hillside, on the road known as Calle Don Jose de Orbaneja, so called after one of the founders of Calahonda in the 1960’s.
Calahonda emerged following two estates being joined, previously owned by the Van Dulken brothers. The two estates formed a total of 280 hectares.
Merging with the many old buildings are selections of commercial centres to choose from including Centro Commercial Calahonda near Los Jarales campsite and El Zoco offering a wide choice of well stocked supermarkets, tourist shops, banks… in fact everything you need to survive without having to travel anywhere else.
Calahonda has a fort house reached by Calle Conde de Jordana. The fort is now known as El Campanario (first turn on the right towards Rattan Tom’s Furniture at the end of Centro Commercial Calahonda). It has previously been a monastery, police-station, prison, restaurant and nightclub and the main building of a major farm. It is claimed that it has even been a brothel in its past.
El Campanario dates back to the end of the 15th century. It is said that the building that now houses the church was built in 1575. The rest of the horse-shoe-shaped building was built a few hundred years later. The fort house had and still has very thick walls and small openings for the use of defenders through which arrows were shot.
There is lots to do and see in the area for the whole family. For example enjoy spending some time at one of the water parks at Fuengirola or Torremolinos. Enjoy the rides at Tivoli World theme park in Benalmadena, Fuengirola zoo or have an adventure day out at Selwo Wildlife Park near Marbella.
If you are into golf then Spain has the second highest density of golf courses in Europe and the Costa Del is the Spanish region’s capital, Calahonda is in a prime location. The region became popular for golf back in the 1980’s and the 80’s and 90’s saw the development of at least 17 new courses added to the portfolio of 30 existing courses.
For a gentle day out stroll around neary by Marbella or the scenic port of Puerto Banus and mix with the rich and famous and dream of owning one of the many large boats, shop at the exclusive boutiques, sit at the pavement cafés and watch the world go by as you while away the days.
So if you want to stay a while in Calahonda for you holiday this year rent a holiday apartment at Las Pamleras de Calahonda and explore the area as one of the many excellent options of Calahonda apartments available to offer.
