Our Neighbourhood

In Edinburgh we are very close to the city centre.  The immediate area is vibrant, composed mostly of tenement flats.  There are local shops at the end of the street and a supermarket within 5 minutes walk.  There are a range of bars and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk, close to the theatre and cinema complex.

In Almuñécar our appartment has excellent sea and mountain views. The complex has a pool, tennis court, gym and beautiful gardens. There are lifts to enable access for all and we are 5 minutes walk from the beach. The town is a typical traditional bustling Spanish town.

About Our Family

We live in Glasgow where Richard is a semi-retired lecturer at University and Anne is a semi- retired teacher.  We have 3 grown up children who no longer a company us on holiday. The Edinburgh flat is a second home, available in JUNE and JULY only. Our Spanish appartment is a holiday home and generally available all year round. We have no pets.

Lifestyle

We enjoy outdoor life, visiting new places, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. 
The flat in Edinburgh is well-placed to visit all the attractions which Edinburgh has to offer.  It is possible / preferrable to walk to most places.  Public transport is also available.  A car would be useful for excursions outwith the capital.
