Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The Casita at Casa Pinar is a pretty, detached, Andalucian cottage. Cosy and traditional. Nestling in the quiet hills above Colmenar with great views. It is part of a small farm in a tranquil setting, adjoining The Montes de Malaga national park. The casita is approached from the old Malaga road by 2 kilometers of good track winding through the pine forest. Sleeps two adults in twin beds on a mezzanine level, with sitting room, small kitchen and shower room. Your very private terrace with bbq overlooks our vineyard, peppered with Almond, olive and fruit trees.There are plenty of outside seating areas and a wood burning stove with free logs for the occasional chillier evenings in spring and autumn. The Casita is the ideal base for chilling out, or exploring the national park by bike,on foot or on horseback. A bar and restaurant lies just 2ks distant and serves a variety of typical Spanish country fare. The village shops of Colmenar will supply all other needs. Use of our swimming pool is encouraged as is the consumption of our own wine !
This is the ideal spot for exploring the countryside or just a quiet break.

The Andalucia region
The Montes de Malaga national park amount to some 4,900 hectares criss crossed with tracks standing some 800-900 metres above sea level with some fabulous views down to the sea.This is an unspoiled part of Spain with Eagles and buzzards circling and herds of goats grazing. Wild boar can sometimes be seen and at the right time of year even pop out at night and devour our grapes ! There are many species of flora and fauna to be found, the wild orchids and flowers in the spring cover the ground. The Natural Park has an old museum of wine generally open on a Sunday. Malaga lies some 35 minutes to the south, The cities of Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada are all a day trip away as are some of the pretty typical white washed hill villages.
Colmenar is a pueblo of some 3,000 souls, with a museum of honey, many bars and a variety of restaurants. It has small supermarkets and all the usual services. It even has a very good 24 hr emergency Health Center. The locals are very warm and friendly. Market day is Thursday, the fiesta is usually held during the second week of August.
