Nueva Andalucia is a well thought out and attractive area just west of Marbella where, as its name suggests, the villas and apartments are based on traditional Andalusian architecture and design.
The bullring on the right marks the entrance to Nueva Andalucia, while the road climbs towards the mountains affording magnificent views of the coast. On a clear day, you can even see North Africa off in the distance. Sports enthusiasts can find plenty on offer here with tennis, paddle tennis and a gymnasium. For golfers in particular, the area could not be more ideal.
There are several magnificent courses within virtual putting distance, including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos, Aloha Golf and La Dama de Noche, which is floodlit for night time play. All the Nueva Andalucia golf courses are surrounded by stunning scenery with a backdrop of mountains.
Nueva Andalucia is also fast becoming known for its international cuisine which ranges from a American deli to the ultimate in cordon bleu.
It also boasts one of the most popular commercial centres in the area, Centro Plaza comprising quality shops, restaurants, bars and offices, as well as a supermarket, gymnasium and beauty parlour. In other words, this thriving commercial centre has everything that the consumer might want - from taking care of the weekly shop, to buying unusual and exquisite gifts, including carpets, antiques, luxury toiletries and, not surprisingly perhaps, everything you may need for the golfer in the family. There is also an excellent street market (rastro) held next to the bullring here every Saturday morning.
Aside from recreational, sport and commercial facilities, Nueva Andaluc�a has several schools, including the international Aloha College. It is also home to one the Costa del Sol's just two casinos, which boasts a vast gaming room as well as various other facilities.
For both residents and visitors, Nueva Andaluc�a is ideally situated, just a few minutes drive from the glitz and glamour of marbella and Puerto Banus yet close to the natural beauty of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range and San Pedro Alacantara, a refreshingly unspoilt pueblo with an appeal all of its own.
We consider car hire to be a very strong link in the holiday chain.
It is very important upon arrival at the airport (increasingly busier and stressful) that once through the arrival lounge, your car hire representative is there to meet and greet you and hand over your car in the least amount of time.
That is what is done!
