About Graham Moran
I am retired, and live in the villa when it is not rented. I also have an apartment in the area.
Graham Moran purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Graham Moran chose Almuñécar
The Costa Tropical has the best climate in Europe and Cerro Gordo is the most beautiful location. The house is located in a protected natural park, so no further building is possible in the immediate surroundings. The natural park extends into the sea, so there is an abundance of sea life off the nearby beaches.
What makes this Villa unique
Beautiful views west, a very quiet area, a swimming pool which is 12 meters long and a maximum of 2 meters deep, the nearby beach of Cantarijan, Granada and the ski slopes one hours drive. The urbanization has security cameras on the entrance road. The house is unusually large, and the lower level can be used as a separate apartment.

"C''était notre second séjours dans cette grande villa située dans un lieu toujours aussi extraordinaire avec sa vue imprenable sur la Costa Tropical et ses couchers de soleil de cartes postales. Nous apprécions particulièrement la beauté du paysage et la tranquillité de l''endroit qui contraste avec l’effervescence des grandes stations balnéaires situées à l''ouest de Malaga. Après cinq locations long séjours en Espagne, cette propriété est la seule qui a répondu à tous nos critères et la seule que nous avons l''intention de louer dans le futur."

"The villa was for us a fantastic place to prolong the summer of Northen Europe. The villa is situated on a smal peninsula about 300 m from the coastline and about 80 m above sealevel. The wievs along the coast and the direct seawiev is magnificent and must be one of the most beautiful wievs along the southen coast of Spain.
The villa itself are well equiped and are suitabel for holidays with friends and family, or just as a couple.
We enjoyed the pool, the terreses and the roomy house very much.

"Description mentioned perfectly refers to the reality. The week spent in La Herradura was really outstanding, also Mr. Moran treated us very kindly. We can nothing but recommend."
En mycket trevlig vistelse på en fantastisk plats.
Ett hus på toppen av höga klippor (Cerro Gorde) med bedövande utsikt över Costa del Sol. Mycket bra tillgång til sov- och badrum. Ett kök utrustat i allt man behöver inkl. tvätt och diskmaskin - vi rekommenderar varmt detta hus och dess trevlige ägare. Krystyna och Emil från Hovås.
we were three families of four people each , two adults and two kids between 7and 12 years old and we spent on week in la herradura. the area is beautiful, the house is in a very luxury contest with villas all over the place. to reach the sea you have o take the car and drive shortly (10 min) to one of the beautiful beaches closeby. our experience was ok, the hose had everything we needed so we relaxed and enjoy our vacation. nevertheless we believe the price is too high for the quality of the house, which is old and has some defects , for example bed sheets , towels are of low quality and the floor close to the swimming pool is somehow not comfortable especially due to the main toilette in the bedroom . all in all our rating is three on five since we expected more quality, the owner wasnt there when we arrived but he promptly answered to all our questions and needs
From Malaga Airport follow signs for Motril and Almeria on the E15/A7. At the Almuñécar/La Herradura turn off at km 305 follow the access road down to the roundabout on the N340, then go right, back towards Nerja and Malaga. (Left is to La Herradura).
Just before the Cerro Gordo tunnel follow the sign right to Cero Gordo. Follow the road round the headland, past El Mirador restaurant, then take the first and only road on the right. Follow the road all the way up, past La Leyenda, and go right at the top,along Calle del Mar. Number 51 is the first house on the right, towards the end of the road.

The nearest beach, Cantarraján, has two restaurants and is partly naturist.

To the west, there are several secluded bays in the natural park between Maro and Cerro Gordo. To the east, La Herradura is set in a beautiful bay with a wide beach, with shops, bars and restaurants. Almuñécar is further east with large supermarkets, and a street market on Friday.
