The Andalucia region
This sun-soaked stretch of the spanish coastline is in the Province of Maslaga, bordering on the provinces of Seville, Cordoba and Granada all of which are steeped in history. The location of our property nestles in the foothills of the Sierra de Tejeda under the gaze of Mount Moroma where many white villages have been shaped by their Moorish past. Our finca is in a network of Roman roads that criss-cross this area of rural Spain allowing you to feel part of its history. Discover some magic a the Alhambra in Granada or visit the sensual city of Seville, or gaze into the stunning gorge of Ronda, or take a look in on the famous rock apes of Gibralter...or...just chill out and enjoy the ambiance of the Andalucian mountains.
The finca is located in rural Andalucia and approached from the main Velez Malaga road, than a drive on the old Roman road network which are driveable in normal hire cars but having a bigger engine is a better option especially in low season, the roads are regularly graded but sometimes weather does dictate the condition. The location is getaway from it all, A joy for walkers, artists, or bird watchers, mountain bikers or for those who just want to relax and do nothing more than read a book and enjoy a glass of the local wine. The finca is a 10/15 minute drive to Arenas, Daimilos is closer. In Arenas there is a bank with cashpoint, a supermarket, a chemist (24 hour), shops, bars and restaurants, an Internet facility and a small market on Wednesday. There is a bus service also to and from Velez Malaga on a daily basis from Arenas village. The area of Arenas village is home to the densest population of chameleons in Europe and is the mascot of the village. Arenas village is a meandering maze of streets which retain the magic and atmosphere of old Spain. Residents are warm and friendly. Competa is within 20 minutes drive.
There are golf courses, closest Vaviera Golf, a 27 hole course. www.bavieragolf.com
Nearby Velez Malaga is a delightful historical town with ample shops and restaurants and an ecellent open air market on a Thurday. There is also a Water Park open during summer month.
Torre del Mar and Caleta have good clean beaches with plenty of chiringuitos and restaurants. A promenade runs along the Mediterranean coastline from Torre del Mar to Caleta and it is a very pleasant walk or cycle ride. During the summer months there are market stalls, children's fairs and local open air entertainment.
The nearby Caves of Nerja are only 30 minutes away and there are many drives up into the picturesque villages of Compete, Frigliana, Periana and Comares.

"What a location! If you want to relax this is the place!"
This holiday villa was one of the most amazing villas i have ever been to. Sure the villa was a little basic, but what more do you need when you are perched in the mountains with nothing to distract you?
My girlfriend and i had the most perfect time at Casa Vacas. The Villa was cosy, yet bright and welcoming. The pool offers a chance to relax and get away from the heat.
I would suggest doing a BIG shop if you dont want to be travelling down into the town a lot as the drive is pretty long. The road up to the Villa is fine to drive despite some other comments, although i can imagine doing it in the pitch dark is another story. I would heed the advice to hire a better quality car although we had a VW Polo and it coped just fine.
If you want a holiday to escape the stresses of work then i can't recommend this place enough..
I will be returning.

"Beautiful tranquil spot with fantastic views, great for walking."
We have three young boys who loved the pool and the english tv channels for when they needed a bit of shade. We enjoyed the tranquil surroundings and althought the long track was daunting at first, we defeinitely got used to it. A beautiful house, not luxurious but very tastefully decorated.
