The Andalucia region
Benamargosa is a typical white washed Andalucian village just 10 miles (16km) from the resort of Torre Del Mar and only 38 miles (48km) from Malaga airport.
The village is set in a valley of orange, lemon and avocado trees by the side of the river of the same name, and although only having a population of about 1500, has everything to make a holiday in the "Real Spain." Within a short distance are the hilltop villages of Cutar and Comares (which also has its own pool). Panoramas of the striking landscape can be seen from these viewpoints of the Sierras down to the Costa del Sol.
A few kilometers inland finds Lake Vinuela, where there is fishing and sailing. The villages around the lake - Vinuela, Alcaucin, and Periana - are also worth exploring, and there are breathtaking drives into the sierras which reach over 2000m (6000 feet).
The Arabian fortress town of Velez-Malaga, a short distance away, is steeped in tradition and has a bustling shopping area.
Not too far away along the coast is the resort of Nerja, with its famous caves and "Balcon de Europa", and the historic hillside village of Frigiliana with spectacular views back down to the sea.
During Easter the village has a festival Semana Santa and a larger procession with floats is held in Velez Malaga.
There are many festivals throughout the year.

"Holiday in a spanish village"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Benamargosa at Casa Azul. The village is slightly off the beaten track but has all the necessary facilities - supermarket, cafes and bars, cash machine etc which you may need during your holiday, and gives a real feel for Spanish village life.
The house is fully equipped and very comfortable and the roof terrace is excellent with great views over the village towards the mountains. It is situated up a steep hill but you can take a car to the door to unload groceries etc and then park in the village. There are several steps to the property and it would not suit a disabled guest.
A car is essential but, because you are not on the coast, it tempts you to look at surrounding areas and this was a particularly pleasant part of our stay. The nearby village of Comares is truly spectacular. Nerja and Malaga are easily reached via the Mediterranean motorway.

"A very nice and very well equipped houise"
We stayed in this house for 3 weeks, which was not to long. We really enjoyed everyday. The house are equipped for up to 6 persons, nice furnitures and knick-knacks, which makes the house cosy and "like home" The village have everything you need - supermarkets, pharmacy, baker, 2 fishshops, restaurants, bars ect.
But you need a car to get around, don't miss the village Comares on the top of the mountain 10 km.away.
The beachs are nearby - can be reached in ½ hour. We could recommend Nejra area, nice shops, bars, restaurants this town has everything you need.
We will be back in Benemargosa - absolutely.
