The Andalucia region
Population of the city of Málaga proper was 558,287 as of 2005 estimates. Population of the urban area was 814,000 as of 2005 estimates. Population of the metropolitan area (urban area plus satellite towns) was 1,074,074 as of 2005 estimates, ranking as the fifth largest metropolitan area in Spain. Málaga, home to the new Picasso museum, is surrounded by mountains, lying in the southern base of the Axarquía hills, and two rivers, the Guadalmedina (its on the left bank) and the Guadalhorce, flow near the city into the Mediterranean.
The climate is mild and equable, the mean annual temperature being about 19 °C (66 °F). For its broad sky and broad expanse of bay the city has been compared to Naples.
The inner city of Málaga is just behind the harbour. The quarters of El Perchel, La Trinidad and Lagunillas surround this centre. The city has much revenue from the agricultural sector and from tourism.
The Holy Week, Semana Santa, and the Málaga Fair, "Feria de Málaga" are the two most well-known of Málaga's festivals.
A popular walk leads up the hill to the Gibralfaro castle (a Parador), offering extensive views over the city. The castle is next to the Alcazaba, which in turn is next to the inner city of Málaga. By taking the Paseo del Parque, a promenade that runs alongside a park with many palm trees and statues, one can walk to the harbour.
La Sierra de las Nieves (literally, the mountains of the snows) is, some would argue,one of the most beautiful National Park in all Andalucía. It is certainly one of Spain's richest natural enclaves, now protected by UNESCO with Biosphere Reserve status.
It is not particulary high, averaging 1,100 metres, with Mount Torrecilla the highest peak at 1,919 metres. It boasts an impressive array of both flora and fauna and is even more famous for its potholes, one of which is the third deepest in the world.
Although there are no towns within the Park itself, its perimeter is dotted with pretty villages, Alozaina, Casarabonela, Tolox, Guaro, Istán, Monda, Ojén and Yunquera. Of Moorish origin, they retain their narrow, winding streets and their Arabic-inspired handicraft skills.
Locally there is plenty of quality walking to be enjoyed (there is even a Roman pathway), as well as horse trekking, paragliding and a wealth of nature to be discovered.
Besides visiting the area of Sierra de las Nieves from La Era, day trips may be made to cities such as Ronda, Granada, Marbella, Antequera, El Chorro gorge and nearby lakes, Gibraltar, Cordoba, and Sevilla.
Granada, where the Alhambra is an obligated visit, is approximately a 135 km. drive from La Era. Antequera, with the enigmatic natural stone structures of El Torcal National Park close by is a mere 45 km. from La Era. El Chorro gorge and lakes is 35 km from La Era. To the monumental cities of Ronda and Sevilla there are 70 Km. and 220 Km. respectively. Marbella, city where the jet set abound is at a distance of 70 km from the villa.
As well, excellent beaches and golf courses can be found along all of the Costa del Sol - Torremolinos (45 Km.approx.), Fuengirola (55 Km. approx.), Marbella (70 Km. approx.) and Estepona (80 Km. approx.).

We spent 5 days in nuevespigas with 11 girls for a hen party! The villa and surroundings were breathtaking, a real lucky to be alive type thing!Even in October the weather was beautiful!!The villa wa… More

A large group of us came for my daughters hen party - we were anticipating something very nice but when we arrived we were amazed, stunned and a hundred other adjectives!! The pictures in the advert just don't do the place justice at all. It had everything we needed and more!! Every room we went in the views were just fabulous and we never got tired of saying 'how beautiful','how fabulous'. The roads are very, very steep but we managed, apart from emptying the bins down in the village and going to get a few supplies from the local village store (we did a big shop at Carrefour in Malaga on the way) we didn't need to go out at all. It was so great that my daughters future mother-in-law has booked it again for next year to celebrate her husbands 60th birthday and we are trying to arrange a hen party reunion!!! Or hoping somebody else decides to get married so we can back for another hen party.

"Great venue for reunions"
Nuevespigas was an excellent venue for my family (17 in total ranging from 9 - 58) to gather, relax and have lots of fun. The whole villa exceeded expectations, it was clean, spacious, well equipped, and well laid out to take advantage of the spectacular views across the valley and catch the evening breezes. With lots of nooks and crannies there were plenty of places to get away, or to congregate en masse. The pool is great - see if you can make a whirlpool! We enjoyed a Moroccan and Spanish meal cooked in the kitchen and eaten together in the large dining area. Isabel, Frank and Andy were great in helping to sort out any problems that arose. The steep approach is certainly a challenge, so best with a good engine! There are lots of nice walks from the village, simple local bars, and a trip to El Chorro gorge, Ronda and the beach are all recommended, as is a swim in the lake on the way back from El Chorro.
I have no reservations in recommending this, you can't beat it for a mix of privacy and family or group fun.

"Superb Summer in Southern Spain"
This past July, my family and I enjoyed a fantastic and memorable two- week vacation at Villa La Era. There were 18 of us in total with an age span ranging from 73 years to four months old, and EVERYONE equally enjoyed themselves. The accommodations were extremely comfortable, the villa itself and the surrounding property were clean and well maintained, and the view was a pleasure to wake up to every morning; But, besides the physical attributes we encountered upon our arrival, the best part of our vacation (and what truly made our experience so special) was the family that runs this little gem in the South of Spain. Isabel and her family all did their part to make our stay at La Era as pleasant as possible. From giving us great advice to help plan our itinerary, to finding us a chef to prepare delectable meals, they went above and beyond to ensure that everyone's needs were met, and that La Era felt like a home away from home.

"Luxurious with magnificent views"
This used to be an hotel so all the bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms, safe and hairdrier. The kitchen was industrial and fantastic with everything you could wish for. There were plenty of seating areas outside so you could move round with the sun. Nice swimming pool but a little cold in June. There were plenty of board games and books provided. Table tennis was also available. It is on top of a very steep hill and a little isolated although only 10 minutes from Casarbonela with supermarkets and restaurants which were basic. Warning - the supermarkets are closed on both Sunday and Monday so stock up in Malaga before you arrive.

"Paradise in Casarabonel"
According to the information on the Internet and in the brochure I got from my agency it should be a 'nice' place to be. Nice is not the right kwalification for our stay at this place.
It was superb. We didn't expect this at all. It was spacious with splendid views over the valley, clean, cool and very comfortable to stay. The kitchen was outstanding. Although we had great plans to dicover all the great spots in the neighbourhood, most of our time we 'wasted' at Vill la Era. We didn't mind at all. If you decicde to go there, be aware of the fact that the road is very steep. Tha't the only negative point I can find.
If you book this former hotel, that's what it is, you won't regret it.
