The Andalucian government requires all holiday lets to be registered and display the registration number on their website. The aim is to improve the quality of service in the holiday and rental market with minimum standards for accommodation. Each property owner must register their property with the tourist department of the Junta de Andalucía (Details Here). Properties that do not display this number are operating illegally. These properties should be avoided because they may not meet the minimum standards and if discovered will have to stop trading, with obvious consequences for your holiday. Our apartment is fully registered and we have a licence to let.
What better way to relax with friends and family than with a steaming cup of designer coffee and some delectable cake? Add to that a perfect Marbella location and it's a combination made in heaven. Or perhaps you would enjoy an ice-cream sundae whilst waiting for that Marbella sunset. Whatever the occasion, the coffee, cakes and ice-cream in Marbella will delight you. See our new page for a round-up of some well known cafes, coffee houses and ice-cream parlours in Marbella.
Just 5 miles north of Marbella is a beautiful white village with fantastic views of the mountains and valleys of the surrounding Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park - a Unesco Biosphere Reserve. Ojén serves as a gateway to the Sierra de Las Nieves from the Costa del Sol. Ojén has a typical Islamic layout. It is amazing that the village has remained largely unspoilt even though it is so close to Marbella on the Costa del Sol. You still get the feeling of old Andalucia as you walk around the maze of tiny cobbled streets. You will see balconies and terraces with beautiful bourgainvillea hanging down from them and many walls have lemon trees trained against them including the walls of the church in the plaza.
