The Axarquia region in Andalucia was once notorious bandit country and later a stronghold of the guerrillas during the civil war. It is a mountainous area not unlike the Alpujarras in Granada region It has distinctly North African character with whitewashed villages with narrow streets dotting the hillsides. On the hillsides there are a lot of terracing and irrigation channels constructed by the Moors. Olives are the mail crop but there are some beautiful fertile valleys which grow oranges , lemons, mango and avocados.
The location of the house is great for visits to Granada, Malaga, Antequera and Ronda. Close by are 3 Natural Parks. Torcal with its fabulous rock formations, Montes de Malaga with it pine forests and the Serria Tejeda mountain range. All areas are abundant with flora and fauna, ideal for nature lovers, walkers and tourists. The last two have roads through and picnic areas. For more lively pursuits the coast 30km away has beaches galore, water parks an abundance of shops and restaurants.
