MEET & GREET
You will be met by our English speaking agent. The overwhelming feedback we have received is that being met on arrival starts your holiday off on the right foot and provides a point of contact in the event of emergency e.g. lost keys. It brings a little extra peace of mind and the guided tour of the apartment, ensures you do not suffer the frustration of attempting to familiarise yourself with your holiday home after an arduous journey e.g. how does the aircon work? You will be able to raise any questions about the accommodation and local amenities and then quickly slip into holiday mode.

THE IMMEDIATE AREA
If it’s a touch of real Spain you are looking for then go no further than San Pedro, which even boasts its own lake where you can cable-ski or take a boat out The beach & promenade stretch for 3 km and you will never feel crowded-out. It's a thriving self-sufficient little town, which accommodates tourists in its delightful local bars and restaurants. There are no pubs and no nightclubs! In complete contrast, if you want to mix with the jet-set, Puerto Banus is 10 minutes away. Try dinner overlooking the marina or designer shopping in its many boutiques. Ostentatious it is but you won't get bored! Benahavis is an 11 km drive and is a really pretty village with many restaurants around the central square and a good place to visit in the early evening.
Many top quality golf courses are within short driving distance. Selwo Safari park, the largest in Europe is just 15 min away and a wonderful experience for all the family

All the following towns and places are worth a visit:
Marbella, the hub of the Costa del Sol, for shopping and fine-dining. Go to Orange Square in the heart of old Marbella surrounded by bars and restaurants. Ronda a fantastic 45 minute mountain drive. First Bull-ring in the world was built here. Casares & Mijas, great examples of “white villages”. Estepona and Duquesa, to say you’ve been. Sotogrande, the most exclusive private estate in Europe - see how the other half live. Gibraltar (need your Passport). Take the tour up the Rock and see the museum and monkeys or take a boat trip dolphin & whale watching. Tarifa is a world-centre for wind-surfing. There are zoos, aqua parks, aquariums, museums (the Picasso Museum in Malaga has the largest collection of the artist's paintings in the world). The caves at Nerja are fabulous!
