My son and I offer apartments for rental in El Toyo. We are small but offer a friendly professional service with high quality apartments. The apartments are privately owned and have a great many personal touches to them which makes them feel more like home from home. We understand that your holiday is important to you and therefore it is important to us to make your stay with us an enjoyable experience. We do not like the impersonal approach of most holiday rental services and therefore like to invite you to feel at ease to ask us anything you would like to, so as to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. We live in El Toyo for a large part of the year and have good knowledge of the area. We like to provide lots of information about the area and what it has to offer so you can get the best from your holiday.
The concept of El Toyo was born when Almeria won the rights to host the Mediterranean games for 2005. Provincial and local governments decided to develop an area on the edge of the renown Cabo de Gata Natural Park into an 'up market' tourist area. It is still under development as the project was enormous but plans are to make it a tourist attraction for the more discerning traveller. Initially it was used as the 'Olympic Village' for the 2005 games and then as a residential/holiday resort. Almeria has long been a holiday resort for the Spanish people so if you prefer to be in 'Spain' rather than 'Spanish England' then this is the place to visit. I get to practice Spanish with the locals and they to speak English with me. This is why I decided to buy my place there.
When we first started to rent out holiday properties we were on a steep learning curve. We are still learning, not only the language but also how people differ in their requirements. It has been interesting and at times stressful but on the whole an fullfilling experience. We don't profess to have the answers to everything but we will always try to help you whenever we can.
