The Andalucia region
Alhama is perfectly situated, close enough for an easy day or overnight trip to the splendid cities of Granada and Malaga; the sea air of the attractive seaside towns of Nerja and Almunecar; and the striking and exhilarating mountain regions of the Sierra Nevada and the Sierras Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara which offer great walking and winter sports.
Everywhere you look the view stretches as far as the eye can see and takes in gentle hills, green valleys and craggy moonscape mountain peaks. The Natural Park of the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama offer secluded picnic areas, usually next to a river or lake, and lovely walks. For hiking, the peak of La Maroma is at 2080m and offers year round snow in chasms at the summit and wonderful views of the area.
A beautiful drive takes you down to the coast where you can enjoy the pretty seaside towns of Torre del Mar, Nerja, La Herradura, etc.
The attractive towns of Loja (40 mins), Montefrio (1 hour), Antequera (1 hour) and Archidona (1 hour) are all an easy, scenic drive away. Fabulous Sevilla and Cordoba are only 2 hours away and lovely Malaga just over an hour away. Bike hire, walking routes, walk/hike/cycle tours available.
Alhama de Granada
Alhama de Granada is a special little town full of history, culture, architecture, pretty squares, flower-filled balconies, and great bars and restaurants featuring .... delicious free tapas served with every beer or wine.

Spectacularly sited along the side of an enormous gorge the town is blessed with fabulous views, hot springs and great local walks, birdlife and flora/fauna.
