The Andalucia region
The many varieties of subtropical plants with the combination of sea, sun, light & water make the charm of the white, rural, Andalucía villages the escape that they are, to the traditional Spain, where the inhabitants are warm & friendly, the restaurants & bars welcoming with 3 course lunchtime menus at 8€ including wine, affordable for all.
Casarabonela & Ardales, both at about a 15 minute drive, are typical white washed villages of Moorish origin, retaining narrow, winding streets & Moorish-inspired architecture & handicraft skills, with most services & good restaurants available. Situated around the natural park of The Sierra de Las Nieves, one of the most beautiful National Parks in all Andalucía & one of Spain's richest natural enclaves, protected by UNESCO with Biosphere Reserve status. It boasts an impressive array of both flora & fauna & an abundance of wildlife including eagles, boar, lynx, cougar, pine martins, partridge etc. & yet you are within about an hour of the glitz of Marbella, Puerto Banus & the Costa del Sol generally Day trips may be made to cities such as Ronda, Granada, Marbella, Antequera, Gibraltar, Cordoba & Sevilla.
To the North, Ardales is on the Western point of the most some extensive & beautifully stunning fresh water lakes stretching through to El Chorro, good for walking, swimming, & canoeing, a couple of excellent restaurants & bars The El Chorro gorge & Antequera, with the enigmatic natural stone structures of El Torcal National Park.
If a day at the beach is required you can be on the coast at a beachside restaurant in 60 minutes. The coastal plain between the mountain ranges has a variety of quite different towns & resorts; including: Málaga, Marbella, Benalmadena, Mijas, Toremolinos, Estepona, & Fuengirola. At the far extremity is the historic port of Cadiz with Gibraltar in between & ferry trips available to Morocco from Algeciras. With such a vast number & variety, it makes it more enjoyable to visit a different resort rather than be in the same surroundings of just one. Therefore being based at Villa Flores for your stay it is convenient as a centre to explore both the coast & the countryside, although, we do not expect you will want to venture away from here except for the 1 trip to confirm there is no where you would rather be. Golf is very popular in the area with many courses available.
Málaga is an elegant port, retaining many of its original Moorish buildings, the Alcazar & hilltop castle giving impressive views. The inner city, just behind the harbour, has palm lined pedestrianized streets with interesting & impressive shops, café bars & restaurants. There is also the Cathedral & as Picasso's birthplace, there is a museum dedicated to the artist. There are many festivals in the City & area generally, which, with the wealth & influence of cultural heritage left by the Moors, some of this influence is reflected in the fiestas, music, architecture & dance, together with the magic of gipsy culture, costume, horse drawn carriages & dressage.
