Casares villas are a wonderful and relaxing holiday hot spot

By: keith lunt

One of my favourite spots for a foreign holiday is the wonderful relaxing Casares on the Costa Del Sol, in sunny Spain. Being only 25 minutes by car from Gibraltar International Airport makes the resort absolutely idyllic for short breaks as well as longer holidays. You can, should you wish, manage without hiring a car since there is a good, reliable, local taxi service and there is also a bus stop at the bottom of the coastal road. Casares Del Sol is also easily reached for new arrivals from Malaga Airport, just 60 minutes drive away via either the coastal or the faster toll road. We frequently use both airports based on the cheapest flights at the time of booking.

Casares Del Sol resort is based around a group of small intimate communities of apartments each having its own unique features on offer. Each community is run by a small community committee. At the centre of each community are the manicured communal gardens. Taking centre stage of each community is a wonderful swimming pool complete with bed chairs and umbrellas. Our block has a large main pool as well as having the additional benefit of a splash pool for the little ones to cool off in. The pools are surrounded with palm trees and other tropical trees for decoration. The owners have considered further potential developments for holidaymakers and now we have planned for our community for 2009 is a table tennis table, a small putting green, and possibly a boule court!

Casares Del Sol has a great location away from the main coastal road. Casares Del Sol is but 1 minute drive from the Mediterranean Sea at the bottom of the hill. If you wish to walk to the beach it is a mere 12-15 minute gentle stroll. There is a taxi rank at the bottom operational from about 10am until midnight if you don’t fancy walking back uphill and prefer to take the easy route back.

The majority of Casares villas have either sea, mountain or golf course views, or indeed a combination of these views. At the beach you will find two beach bars, the ‘Chiringuito Beach Bar’ which benefits from its superb location right on the beach and a little further up the beach towards Marbella, ‘La Perla’ The Chiringuito is a traditional beach bar frequented by locals as well as holidaymakers, whilst the new ‘La Perla’ has a more cosmopolitan style that is complete with sails to provide shade, coconut matting and decking. Both serve excellent fresh local cuisine. For a real treat you can have traditional paella!

Casaes Del Sol is situated in a greenbelt of golf courses thus ensuring that you are not surrounded by buildings. Right next door is the new mecca for golfers Finca Cortesin, which replaces from 2009 Valderrama Golf Course for the Volvo Masters Golf Tournament. Right across the road is Casares Golf. Casares Golf is a 9 hole par 3 and 4 course with a fantastic golf club as well. It is alsoopen to non members who just wish to use its excellent bar and restaurant facilities with fantastic views over the course to the Meditterrean.

There are a good selection of Spanish bars and restaurants to choose from on the nearby beaches of Sabilinas, 5minutes by car. Why not visit Marbella, Puerto Banus or Gibraltar for the day? All are easily reached.

So if you would like a nice relaxing holidayin the sun , either as a couple or as a family stay at Casares Del Sol on the Costa Del Sol!
