Apartamento La Fortaleza

Delightful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom ground floor apartment in the La Fortaleza complex with its tropical gardens and pool just across from Villaricos harbour and beaches. Recently painted and tastefully decorated with easy access to the well-maintained gated community and parking next to the complex. Just a few minutes’ drive from a top-quality international golf course and resort.

Four communal solarium roof terraces with spectacular views and plenty of room for sun-bathing. Two fitted bathrooms and an open plan kitchen and living room leading onto a sunny front terrace. Fitted wardrobes in both bedrooms and fully furnished throughout.

La Fortaleza is one of the most-attractive complexes on the Almeria coast and is ideally located within metres of the sea and a few minutes’ walk to shops, restaurants, and other amenities. On Sunday mornings the village is taken over by a colourful street market that attracts tourists and locals from all over the province and further afield.

Villaricos is an all-year round beach town but gets busiest in the Summer (July and August) when rental properties are nearly 100% occupied and rents are expensive, so some property owners take advantage of this to earn some extra income. The nearby towns are Palomares, Vera, Garrucha and Mojacar and in addition to golf, popular activities in the area include scuba diving, cycling, horse-riding, tapas routes, going to the beach and visiting historical cities such as Granada famous for its Alhambra Palace.
