Nerja is one of those few places on the Costa del Sol which has suffered less from overdevelopment , mainly owing to its geography: Hemmed in between the sea, jagged coastlines, and rugged valleys, Nerja benefits from a unique warm microclimate, that draws visitors all year round.
The apartment complex is built on the site of an old sugar cane factory, where the land drops to meet the beach, with the ancient ruins of the fortified tower to the west, from where `La Torrecilla' gets its name.
Back then, Apartamentos Playa Torrecilla was a little more isolated than it is now, but as Nerja expanded, is now very much within the urban fabric.
The apartment complex was purpose built to take advantage of this unique microclimate, as well as its beachfront location and direct views over the sea. Cooled by sea breezes in summer, and warmed by them in winter, originally, the apartment complex catered mainly for Spanish holidaymakers from the cities , desperate to escape the dusty heat of inland Spain . Although with the expansion of international tourism, latterly, northern Europeans now also enjoy our warmer climate during winter.
