What you will love about this home
My guest will love the tranquility and privacy of the chalet, during the day and the night. The nearness of the swimming pool, inside the plot of the house, which you can use at any time, day or night.
What you will love in the neighborhood
The street Laguna de la Ratosa is a very quiet place in town, only occupied by cars in the morning. After three o,clock the street is empty. However you can get a bus a 100 meters from the apartment by crossing the gardens to the west. Your neighbours: to the right, our kind and joyful Greta and Bertus (two Dutch people), living in number 7. And a couple of Irish people living in number 5, very nice neighbourhood, indeed. On the other side of the street very nice Spanish people, always ready to help foreigners if they need any help. Try it and tell me.
This area is called PARQUE DEL ESTE,(also called by somebody "El Limonar") It is a place with very new buildings of typical Spanish construction. The inhabitants are of a Spanish middle class people, always keen as mustard on helping locals and foreigners in case they need some information or they are in need of something important. Your neighbours will be doctor, lawyers, bank directors, teachers, collar workers and normal people.
In the area you find about 100 families of that kind, all of them with their private swimming-pool.
Walking down the street in the beach direction you will find a superstore called Supersol, where you will fid food like mountain ham (jamón serrano) and nice fruits at very cheap prices, as well as clothes. In front of the supermarket there is a hairdresser's and barber's shop where Ashley will speak English to you with her particular Brazilian accent.
Walking a few yards from there you will rich the Promenade and the beach. If you come in July or August you wil be able to live the "Feria de Vélez" and maybe dancing flamenco. In the beach you should ask for the "chiringuitos" to drink a very cool bear, and eat mediterranean fish. Certainly you will not forget this town in South Andalucia, called Torre del Mar belonging to the province of Malaga. Its nice airport can take you directly to GB in 2 hours and 30 minutes if you can take a direct flight. From MALAGA airport (AGP) there are 2000 (two thousand) flights to GB in summer.
