NOMADS RETREAT a unique restored country house set in its own private grounds of mango & avocado just a few minutes from the sea!
Andalucia...... Costa Tropical......... This is the most beautiful region on the Spanish Costas. Historical stone look-out towers sit along the coast line, where messages were once sent to Granada to guard this "special "place.
Its very lush and green, trees that grow here are tropical -palms, mangoes, bananas etc,.. hence the name Costa Tropical ! Luckily for us this is an area has not been ruined by over development. Its an unspoilt dreamy, laid-back place... the people are truly warm, helpful and friendly. Even to this day it is not unusual to see farmers walking down the streets or ploughing the fields with oxon, donkeys or anything else that they can get their hands on!!!! One of the really special things about the area is that it is clean and safe, particularly for the children. The locals adore children and they are welcomed wherever they go, even in local restaurants late in the evening.
The nearest beach to Nomads Retreat, just below Alfamar, is a lovely 10min walk or a couple of minutes by car. There, the cove is quiet and peaceful, the beach is somewhat stoney, but the rock pools are a great source of enjoyment and adventure for the children, catching crabs & fishing.
there is nowhere better to spend a lazy lunchtime than in the coves little "tapas" bar whilst watching the dolphins!
Salobrena & Almunecar (only 10mins drive to either one)
Both historic towns are very pretty, white-washed houses; old town shopping areas & restaurants. Moorish castles, lovely narrow streets to saunter through in the balmy evenings.
National parks with Deer, Wild boar & breathtaking views.
Shop & supermarkets etc for your every need with some excellent places to eat & drink.
The beaches there are sandy and have Tropical "Chirinquitos" where BBQ or a cocktail can be served to you with sand under your feet!
Almunecar has a beautiful water park over looking the mediterranean with slides, pools etc. Large tropical gardens, restaurants, entertainment,face painting & fun things for the children.
Whilst they play safely you can relax with a drink under a palm tree!
Full day Only €13,(£8.50) half day €7 (under £5) There is also a tropical bird sanctuary under palm trees just below the castle.
The Waterfalls -this is another of my favorite places to visit, not many people seem to know about this paradise! Clean, clear water melting from the Sierra Nevada where two rivers meet.
It is a lovely hours drive through a cherimoya plantation, through the mountains & two small villages. Once there, you will not want to leave. Children and adults can dive into deep limestone rock pools. I like to sit in the shallow cascading fall & pools, its better than a jacuzzi!. Plus spectacular scenery and wildlife (there are always deer to be seen).
Take a picnic and cross the swing bridge over one of the waterfalls above a wonderful green valley, which was once a river bed, now filled with exotic trees & flowers and incredible rock formations and trickling streams. Amazing!
The Alpujarras (about 1hrs drive from Nomads Retreat) Curving mountain roads taking you through forests passing natural springs and caves to just below the Sierra Nevada (Ski Area) where there are pretty white washed villages selling local handy craft, woven rugs, cured hams, locally collected honey, organic cheese & the famous rich olive oils not forgetting the wonderful and inexpensive wines. One can spend a full day exploring this region eating tapas & local specialities, tasting the local wine and just taking in the views!
Nerja Caves are spectacular having the largest stalagmite or is that a nite!.....in Europe (well worth a visit).
During the winter months...there is much to do & see in the can enjoy a morning skiing in the Sierra an hour or so away...& get back in time to watch the sun go down enjoy a cocktail on the terrace by the ocean. Visit the fascinating city of Granada...learn some of Spains rich history & culture -browse the museums & the amazing Alhambra palace.
Or pop down to the millionaires playground that is Puerto Banus....& see how the other half live!
And having done all can just laze by the private relax in the outdoor hot tub watching dolphins playing in the distant Mediterranean from the luxury of Nomads Retreat! (which is ...MY particular favourite thing to do!)
