A perfect base for exploring the real Spain, away from the tourist traps of the western Costa del Sol. The house is beautifully furnished in modern style. You can enjoy peaceful hours on the sunny roof terrace, or get out and about and enjoy the many treasures that the Axarquia region has to offer. Benamocarra is a typical Andalucian village and has plenty of bars offering simple Spanish fare at a fraction of prices charged on the coast, as well as a small supermarket, banks, bakeries and butchers. The village pool is 5 minutes walk away and is open from mid June to mid September. Only 45 minutes drive from Malaga airport (there is a good bus service if you do not wish to hire a car, or we can arrange transport from/to the airport), 10 minutes to the bustling coastal town of Torre del Mar with its long sandy beaches and many bars and restaurants, and 30 minutes to the beautiful old towns of Nerja and Frigiliana. Ideal relaxing location for those loving the countryside with plenty of walks available off the beaten track. The El Ingenio shopping mall is 10 minutes drive away with its many shops and hypermarket.

The Andalucia region

Benamocarra is in the Axarquia region of Andalucia, renowned for its sub-tropical climate. One of the main local industries is farming, but you won't find miles of plastic greenhouses; instead you will see olive, lemon, orange, avocado and mango plantations.

The coastal town of Torre del Mar is 10 minutes drive away and has a large market on Thursdays and a hypermarket. As well as the long sandy beach, there are many bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and it is possible to have a Menu del Dia (3 course lunch with drink) for as little as €8.00.

Granada and the Alhambra Palace are about 1.5 hours drive away. Other places of interest are the caves of Nerja, the old town of Malaga with its Cathedral, Lake Vinuela and Comares, the highest village in Andalucia.

The Sierra Tejeda National Park is about 30 minutes drive away and is a great place for a hike or just a gentle stroll. Ibex are often spotted up on the hills.

Lake Viñuela is 20 minutes drive and offers a lovely setting for picnics. It also has a watersports centre for sailing, windsurfing and kayaking.

Other nearby attractions include Aquavelis water park, go-karting, various street markets, quad biking, golf, horse riding.


Benamocarra is an old Moorish village which still has the (sometimes steep) winding streets from when it was built. The beautiful church of Santa Ana dates from the 16th century.

The two main fiestas take place mid May and mid October. These are great fun with live music and flamenco dancing, numerous bars and food stalls around the town, and a party atmosphere which lasts into the early hours.

The village pool is set in beautifully landscaped gardens, with rustic sunshades and a cafeteria, and costs about 1€ for a day's visit.

"Book for a week and you will want to stay longer next time."

Deciding to have a short break , i returned back to this village which i visited earlier in the year. This time i choose another property to stay in, a recently refurbished house , with with fantastic facilities, large enough for a family or a group of friends . From the huge terrace the views were breathtaking !! . I was lucky to be staying in the village while a very colourful fiesta was taking place . the events were endless and allowed me to party away , and like my earlier visit , i was welcomed by the locals who remembered me . I hired a car again knowing as before the local bus service on sundays and also in the evenings does not operate.
