About the area
The downhill walk to the beautiful beaches takes only 15 minutes. The beaches are man made and have specially constructed coves which make for very safe swimming. There are a couple of Beach cafes to enjoy coffee and cake (or a beer).
There is a courtesy bus from the Elba Palace Hotel to the beacha area and into town.
The Villa stands about 50m from the first tee of the "Old" Golf course which staged the 2004 Spanish Open. The Clubhouse is in the 5* Elba Palce Hotel which has an excellent restaurant. preferential green fees are available for guests.
The Airport is only 15 minutes away and costs approx 15 Euros in a Taxi (1.10 Euro on the bus!) The main town of Caleta de Fuste (formerly known as as Costa Caleta) is 35 minute walk but less than 4 euros by taxi. (Courtesy bus from the hotel is free).
The main shopping centre is a 15 minute, downhill walk, with a good selection of shops, restaurants, bank, cinema and bowling alley.
McDonalds and Burger King also.
We, as a family, are very keen skiers and would be interested in a swap for a ski chale/apartment, preferably in French Alps but ither areas considered.
Less commercial resort preferred.
