Lobres is a small village in Southern Spain. It is in a region called the “ Costa Tropical” because of it’s micro climate and the fact that it has sunshine over 300 days per year.
It is approximately 40 minutes drive south of Granada and about 1 hour from Malaga.
The village has a town hall and post office, a bank, 2 small supermarkets, an artisan bread maker, a butcher ,and a lovely square.
Lobres is also about 10 minutes drive to Salobrena, which is a charming old moorish town , with an old town area , and a modern lower town. It is at the seaside and the promenade features many restaurants, bars etc.
Heading in the opposite direction from Lobres is Motril, also about 10 minutes drive. Motril is an old Spanish town and buzzes with activity. Both Spaniards and visitors alike live it and it’s the perfect place for tapas, which is a feature of this whole area.
The motorway going North is 5 minutes from Lobres as is the motorway to Malaga.
This is authentic Spain, though you manage perfectly in English.
It is also the cheapest part of Spain to visit and people from the U K and Ireland are amazed at the great value in eating out or having drinks or coffees. The Spaniards are very social people and the restaurants and Tapas bars are always busy.
