The area remains SPANISH, restaurants and tapas bars are varied and cheap. Motril Port area has many excellent fish restaurants . Nearby Motril town - 5 minute drive - is a thriving market town, busy year round. Not a purpose built tourist resort that closes 6 months of the year! Benefits from excellent shopping facilities supermarkets, including a large hypermarket, boutiques & daily indoor food market. Nightclubs limited and thankfully no British pubs or businesses! Nearby, village Puntalon (10 minute walk) has a restaurant and one small bar - but really need to centre on Motril for everyday needs.
The immediate location is semi-rural and quiet considering its proximity to Motril town - 3kms. The whole area has a fast growing economy, based around horticulture as well as tourism - mainly Spanish. All this is facilitated by the improving road network and easy links with three international airports GRANADA/MALAGA/ALMERIA. Although on a touring holiday, possible to use Alicante, Gibraltar, Murcia or even Madrid - less than 5 hour drive - excellent motorway.
Many sub-tropical fruits and vegetables are produced in the area, often for export to the large supermarkets of Northern Europe. Some surrounding land is covered with Invernaderos (plastic greenhouses) regular crops are cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and melons. On open land, often potatoes, leeks, lettuce & asparagus. The hillsides are used for sub-tropical fruits and further inland olives, almonds & chesnuts.
The Apartments mature gardens are home to many native plants, some fruit trees, palms and flowering shrubs. In season help youself to avocados & citrus fruits.
