Dates for the diary are - the last Sunday in April which is the Feast of the Virgin de la Cabeza and the Village Feria which is always the second weekend in August and lasts for 3 days.
Sedella ( in the other direction ) is a slightly smaller village than Canillas de Aceituno but once again has all the main facilities that you would require. Also has a large municipal pool open from mid June to mid September.
Dates for the diary are - San Anton on the 17th January ( the blessing of the animals ) and the Village Feria which is always the first weekend in August and lasts for 3 days.
Both villages are well worth a visit , both are steeped in Moorish history and both have buildings still standing from the time when The Moors occupied this part of Spain.

"Scenic, peaceful and relaxing."
This is our second visit, we spent our honeymoon here in April 2011.
Lindsey and Jim made us feel very welcome.
The terrace is a great place to relax and take in the breathtaking views. Just before the sun was setting the wind would drop to nothing and you could here a pin drop.
We made good use of the bbq and well equipped kitchen.
We had 'menu del dias' at the Restaurante El Chiringuito in Sedella on a number of occasions which was very good value for money.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week here.
