"Nice, pretty silent location for cultural vacation in the triang"
This location is very much recommended, if you would like to calm down and enjoy the culture of andalusia. You are within 10 min at the highway and a lot of important sightseeing topics are only betwe… More
Just a point of clarification.
A shortcut brings the first grocery shop at under 3 km and all amenities are to be found in both villages of Villanueva del Rosario and Villanueva del Trabuco which are 6 km away, the small town of Archidona is a mere 8 km away. The villa destined for our guests is totally seperate from the owners accomodation but backs on to it.
