The Andalucia region
Casa La Naranjera is located in the heart of Andalusia, east of Málaga near Canillas de Albaida and Cómpeta in the province of Málaga (southern Spain).
It is a perfect place for walking, cycling and horse riding in the National Park, but also to discover the fascinating history of Andalusia with its beautiful cities and lovely white villages. The coast (Costa del Sol) also offers many possibilities to relax.
The climate is one of the best in Europe with over 320 sunny days a year.
Canillas de Albaida and Cómpeta are part of the beautiful Axarquía region, a surprising and diverse area in the south. Characterized by its white villages, often of Arab origin, it contains squares with colorful flowers, beautiful plants and terraces.
The Moors named this area "Ash-sharquia" (land of the East) because of its location to the east of Málaga. They came from North Africa in 710, conquering almost the whole country within a period of four years. Then they withdrew quite quickly in the southern part of the peninsula. The Moors called it "Al Andalus". They occupied Al Andalus for more than seven centuries. They established villages, built castles, fortresses and mosques. Their minarets are still visible in some villages.
Canillas de Albaida is a 10 minutes walk. The village, with a population of approximately 700, is about 580 metres above sea level on the slopes of the Sierra de Tejeda and Almijara mountains. There are some little supermarkets and shops, a few bars and restaurants. Try the tapas from Gustavo (Plaza Mayor) or the fresh orange juice at the Cherry Bar (Cerezo).
Canillas de Albaida is 17 kilometers from the Mediterranean coast of the Costa del Sol (beach, aqua park, golf). There is a bus connection from Canillas de Albaida and Cómpeta to the beach and Málaga several times a day.
Our holiday home is 2 kilometers from Cómpeta, a more touristic town with lots of shops, restaurants and bars.
Cómpeta is known as the pearl of the Axarquía. It is fascinating to explore with its labyrinth of narrow streets that date back to Moorish times and its spectacular views. The town is best known to many for its locally produced wine, available both dry and sweet.
In fact, the nearby surroundings of Casa La Naranjera offer everything to meet the needs of nature and cultural lovers.
The National Park and the "pueblos blancos" (white villages) in the area such as Frigiliana are worth visiting. Nerja has special caves to explore. The coast offers numerous leisure facilities. Each day you can try another beach of the Costa del Sol. The golf enthusiast will find lots of beautiful golf courses. Velez-Málaga has an Aqua Park, with spectacular slides. Children will really love it.
The Andalusian cities of Granada, Córdoba, Ronda and Seville offer culture and history. The Moors developed one of the most sophisticated civilizations of the Middle Ages. Each of these Andalucian cities still holds spectacular remains of monuments such as the Alhambra Palace in Granada.
You may want to go abroad by visiting Gibraltar, or even cross over to Morocco.
In winter it is possible to ski in the Sierra Nevada.
