Stay at The Blandin Family’s sunny and restful three-bedroom apartment on the Costa del Sol located in the Nueva Andalucía community between Old Town Marbella and San Pedro de Alcantara (less than one hour by car from Picasso International Airport in Malaga, Spain).

The apartment is fully-furnished, child-friendly, and has three bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 baths, and two terraces overlooking beautiful gardens and a 6-swimming pool complex that includes a Jacuzzi and children’s wading pool. Casa Blandin is in the peaceful oasis of the Aldea Blanca Resort complex, where you can enjoy all the amenities of this outstanding area of the Mediterranean: splendid beaches, water sports, tennis, championship golf courses, casino, restaurants, night spots, and many other leisure time activities. It is within walking distance of the world famous Puerto Banus yacht harbor and Mediterranean Beaches which are filled with many options for fantastic dining, shopping and people watching.

From this beautiful base, you can easily enjoy other parts of Southern Spain and Northern Africa. Take a one- or two-day trip to Granada and visit the Alhambra and see firsthand the Moorish influence in Spain. Visit the Rock of Gibraltar and marvel at the views, or make the crossing to Tangier and get a taste for a totally different and exotic culture in Morocco. Other possible side trips include Seville, Ronda, Benahavis, Mijas, Casares, Estepona, Nerja, Coin and Tarifa.

Back at the apartment, you can relax and dine on one of two outdoor terraces, lounge around the multiple pools and Jacuzzi, gaze at the stunning Mediterranean scenery, explore charming towns nestled in the Spanish hillside, and indulge in fabulous meals and entertainment. This part of Spain is renowned for its fresh seafood and tasty dishes: try some succulent roast chicken, paella, tapas, flan and gazpacho made by chefs who infuse their cuisine with subtle taste and passion. In Spain, time is different and the relaxing Spanish lifestyle is sure to captivate you, as it has many others.
