Summer sun...

If the grey days of winter are making you yearn for the sun, how about a spot of golfing on the Costa del Sol? Margaret Hancock, an education consultant and former teacher, is offering her two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in the newly built Casares del Sol development, near Puerto de la Duquesa, to rent. It's just 800 metres from the sea, set in tropical gardens and has a choice of six swimming pools.

The nearest airports are Gibraltar (35kms away) and Malaga (an hour's drive). You can tee-off at the Sotogrande, San Roque and Valderrama golf courses, enjoy waterskiing, sailing and horseriding, or just a cool cerveza in a beach bar.

Price: from pound;380 a week, low season, to pound;515 high season Contact:
