The Andalucia / Malaga Province region
Inland from Nerja and the Mediterranean Sea, you will find the county "La Axarquía". The road meanders through low valleys planted with semi-tropical date palm and kiwi, chirimoya and avocado, mango and molasses, then the landscape becomes a gentle vista of rolling hills and almond, olive and lemon.
Above all, this is a land of sun and enjoys one of Europe's warmest and sunniest climates ( the temperature rarely drops below 10º C, even in January) you can be swimming in early spring and late autumn, and sitting or walking under marvellously clear blue skies during 320 days of the year.
For nearly 800 years the Moors dominated this land, developing science and literature. Their mosques and minnarets still rise above the white villages. Today, of course, they are churches and bell towers, but you will sense the spirit of the former rulers, unmistakeably present in both architecture and atmosphere of the streets and squares and in the philosophic "Que será, será" attitude of the people.
The Competa / Canillas de Albaida area
Competa and Canillas de Albaida are the closest villages, just a few minutes drive from Casa Joven. Located seven hundred metres above sea level with stunning views of the surrounding mountains, countryside and Mediterranean, these villages are best known to many for its locally produced wine, available both dry and sweet, as well as being plentiful and cheap. One of the most popular annual fiestas in Competa is the Noche del Vino (Night of the Wine) on the 15th August which features a programme of flamenco and sevillana music and dance, plus plenty of free-flowing vino
