It's much bigger than it appears on the photos and the view of the beach and sea from the balcony makes for a lovely evening. Everything you need for a holiday with children and Michelle was really helpful with any questions we had.

Response from Michelle:
I am please you had a comfortable stay in my apartment. The swimming pool is open from mid June to mid September. This fact was given prior to the reservation being secured. I was told it was a shame it was closed but as it was on the beach it was not a problem.

Our family (two adults and two kids) spent a week in Michelle's apartment at the end of September. It was great time. We had all we needed and the week passed as in paradise. The sky was clear, the sun bright and the sea blue. The authentic character of Castell de Ferro was truly charming and its location ideal for our one-day excursions to the amazing sites around: the mythical Alhambra on the north, the secret calas of Cabo de Gata on the east and the fairy Nerja cave on the west. And in the evenings it was so pleasant to sit on the balcony breathing the fresh salted air and listening to the sound of waves !

All contacts with Michelle were pleasant. Before booking she provided us with lots of info and when arriving at her apartment building she and her husband welcomed us and showed us around. The apartment itself is all you can wish for. Spacious, clean, two comfortable couches in the living room, good beds, a very nice balcony so you can have your breakfast, lunch and dinner outside. The kitchen is great and with every utensile one can think of. There is excellent wifi, all kind of tv channels and even lots of films on dvd. Castell de Ferro is a small non touristic village where it's hard to find non Spanish tourists. You will have to adapt to the Spanish way of living. In the summer months shops are closed between 1 and 6 pm and restaurants open at 9pm. We were disappointed about the lack of sun loungers at both the pool and the (not sandy but pebble stone) beach and at first that the pool closed between 3-5 pm. But after a few days we did like the Spanish: have a late lunch and relax. Or went to the deserted beach :-).

Although we never met Michelle, she had everything completely prepared for our arrival. Her friend, Nicky, showed us in and checked us out when we left. Nicky had great recommendations for activities and places to eat. We absolutely loved our day trip to Junta de Los Rios; completely worth the drive. The condo was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Thank you so much Michelle!

El apartamento de Michelle y su familia es todo lo que prometen y más. Como ya han dicho otros viajeros, los detalles de la casa (sobre todo orientados a los niños) es lo más destacable, pero a eso hay que añadir que en el apartamento se está realmente comodo. Da la sensación que está equipado de la forma que a ellos les gustaría encontrárselo. Soy muy caluroso, y apenas he tenido que poner el aire acondicionado. Eso si, cuando lo he puesto comunicaba con todas las habitaciones y enfriaba rapido. El salon es muy luminoso y grande, asi como el dormitorio principal. La otra habitación es más oscura, pero no es algo que nos haya molestado. Si se te ha olvidado algún utensilio de playa, en el apartamento encontraras gran variedad. La urbanizacion es grande, pero no se tiene la impresión de estar en un sitio masificado, al igual que pasa con la piscina y con la playa. La piscina ha tenido toda la semana el agua algo caliente, pero tampoco ha supuesto esto ningun problema para mi ni mi familia. Hay un único chiringuito que cercano, justo frente a la urbanización. El trato es muy amable y la cocina y los precios bastante buenos. El centro del pueblo está a 10 minutos o menos andando, y allí encontrarás de todo. La cochera privada es algo estrecha, pero para un coche de dimensiones normales es mas que suficiente. La terraza es más grande de lo que me esperaba al ver las fotos, y aunque no da directamente al mar, si que se puede ver la playa y el estado de ésta, antes de bajar. No sé que mas comentar, salvo reiterar que lo hemos pasado muy bien en un ambiente relajado y muy familiar. Gracias por todo Michelle y familia.

Es war ein toller Urlaub. Die Wohnung war genau wie beschrieben. Es war sehr sauber und alles da was man braucht (sogar Strandtücher, Wasserspielzeug und ein Erste-Hilfe-Set). Der Ausblick vom großen Balkon ist super, das Meer vor der Nase, riesiger Pool und im Juli kaum was los. Michelle war sehr nett, die Kommunikation absolut top! Sogar der Kühlschrank war für das erste Frühstück und den ersten Sundowner bestückt!!! Zu Fuß alles ereichbar, kleiner Supermarkt direkt neben dem Geböude, ein etwas größerer ca 10 min weiter. Die Tapasbar direkt vor der Anlage am Strand unbedingt ausprobieren!!! Kleiner Wermutstropfen: das Haus ist sehr hellhörig und die spanischen Urlauber nicht gerade leise. Wir würden hier trotzdem jeder Zeit wieder buchen! Thank you very much Michelle, greatings from Munich!

Hello my name is Michelle. I am married and we have a daughter. We live in Spain. My husband and I own 2 apartments in the same building in Castell de Ferro, which we have owned from new. We spent 2 years looking for the right apartments for us as a family.
As a family we love the sea and beach & snow skiing.

We love the Spanish way of life, the fresh food, the weather & the people.

If you do visit Spain I'm sure that you will love it too.
