The largest towns are Velez Malaga and the adjacent coastal Torre del Mar, with every modern amenity but inland is really special. The Axarquia region is characterised by spectacular scenery and white mountain villages which still retain features from Moorish times. Thre are many local fiestas throughout the year and each village has its own theme (e.g. Wine, Mules, Moors, Black Pudding! ) as well as celebrations during the usual religious holidays.
Traditional way of life is evident and goats, almonds and olives still feature in the local economy.
Although winter months can be cooler the region enjoys good weather virtually all year. Spring and autumn are especially good for walking the many mountain paths and there is an abundance of wildlife, including eagles, mountain goats, vultures etc.
The east of Malaga is completely different from many peoples perception of the Costa del Sol. The villages are unspoilt but this rural mountain area is not too remote. Staying close to the house ensures a quiet relaxing holiday to lounge around the pool while enjoying the scenery, wildlife and spectacular sunsets. The coast and beach at Torre can be reached in 40 minutes, the pretty seaside town of Nerja in less than an hour and Granada and the Alhambra palace in about 2 hours. Malaga itself is often ignored but the old town is worth a visit and there are many museums, art galleries, theaters and restaurants to enjoy.
