The Andalucia region

We are situated in the Rambla de Oria, in the Province of Almería, Andalucía, Spain,between Albox and Oria. There are beaches at San Juan de Los Terreos, and many romantic bays and coves with beach side restaurants, bars and chiringitas along the coast between San Juan and San Jose and we are only 90 minutes from the Cabo e Gata Natural Park. ?Perhaps one of the quaintest costal village sand one of our favorites is Agua Amarga ("bitter water"). Some 90 mins away is a little white-washed fishing village on the edge of Cabo de Gata nature reserve. It sits in a quiet and sheltered bay almost hidden on the coast between two cliffs. It is fringed by a magnificent fine, sandy beach that stretches for 800m in front of the transparent turquoise waters of the bay.

There is a strong Moorish influence over the architecture of the village. Agua Amarga has a relaxed atmosphere and the hospitality is warm. Moreover, Agua Amarga has been described as o­ne of the last hidden paradises of the Mediterranean. Of late, the village has gone through controlled tourist development that sympathetically mixes the modern with the traditional.

There are charming bars and restaurants to tempt you and for the energetic there are a myriad of water sports to choose from such as water-skiing, jet-skiing, swimming, fishing, diving, boating and yachting. If you prefer walking the Cabo de Gata Natural Park is o­n your doorstep to explore.

The Cabo de Gata is Andalucía's largest coastal nature park. The park covers some 38,000 hectares of land and another 12,000 hectares under water. It is an area of unspoilt beauty with unique scenery, volcanic craters, rocky headlands and sandy coves. Apart from walking and enjoying the scenery there is also cycling and climbing on offer.

One hour to the north we have NATURE PARK SIERRA MARIA - LOS VELEZ, Between the Chirivel and Huéscar depressions, there is an area of rugged mountains. They form a landscape of beautiful valleys, alternating with steep mountains. In winter, their peaks are dusted white with snow, highlighting the contrast with the arid landscape that surrounds them; this is the Sierra-María Los Vélez Nature Park.

If you walk on the Pinar de la Alfahuara Trail, you will find one of the best conserved forests in the province, and a Hunting Reserve that dates from the time of Philip II of Spain. The dense flora comprised of Aleppo pine, holm oak, Corsican pine and deciduous trees in the upper areas are home to mammals such as squirrels and badgers, and you can also see birds of prey like the booted eagle and sparrow hawk. For visitors interested in local fauna, there is a simple trail at the foot of the Sierra de María Mountains running through the Umbría de la Virgen Botanical Garden.

The extremes of temperature, along with low, but often torrential, annual rainfall, are the cause of drastic changes in the landscape. Where vegetation is scarce, such as steep slopes exposed to the sun, there is extreme erosion producing formations such as the large gullies and deep gorges of the Sierra de la Muela Mountains. Furthermore, these high, rocky peaks are safe nesting grounds for golden eagles, eagle owls and peregrine falcons.

Fuente Del Mojon

We are situated in the Rambla de Oria, in the Province of Almería, Andalucía, Spain. Andalucía is the southern most region of Spain lying between Portugal and the Atlantic in the west and Murcia in the East, the whole province has a costal strip either on the Atlantic or mostly on the Meditterranean, Almería is the eastern most province.

In the far Southeastern corner of the Iberian peninsula is this sun-baked province, with the highest hours of sunshine and lowest rainfall in Europe. Given Almeria´s climate, it´s no surprise that much of the province is comprised of semi-arid desert-like landscape. Due to the dry weather, much of this area is a sparsely populated wilderness. Almeria´s skies are also the clearest in Europe, meaning that Europe´s most powerful telescope has been installed here, near Gergal

Located between the better known towns of Baza and Huercal, the small town of Albox is flanked by the Sierra de las Estancias and the Sierra de los Filabres mountain ranges amidst stunning countryside of olive groves, orchards of citrus trees and dramatic hills and valleys. Several rivers and streams flow close to the town, including the rivers Almanzora and Albanchez which contribute to the area's rich agricultural heritage.

Albox is Albox is a municipality in the province of Almería, Andalusía, Spain.

The name Albox comes from the Arabic for forest and sounds similar to the Spanish phrase for the forest – el bosque.

Traditionally a market town, with narrow streets interspersed with small plazas. Despite its unspoilt charm, the town is not yet on the coach tour circuit.

Albox has a thriving market on Tuesdays when you can buy anything from a horse, chicken or dress to a pair of jeans, shoes or a fresh vegetable, fresh fruit and dried meats etc.

Albox lies in the Almanzora valley. The Rio de Almanzora rises in the province of Granada and flows into the sea at Villaricos in Almería.

Coming upstream from Villaricos, the river splits at Albox the left hand river is the main Almanzora river and the right hand one is the Rambla de Albox, this again splits into two the right hand one being the Rambla de Salient and the left bring the Rambla de Oria. All these rivers have dried up owing to the climate and the damming upstream to create reservoirs.

The Rambla de Oria is a fertile alluvial valley at the widest perhaps 2k and at the narrowest some 400 metres. It rises from the Albox plain to the Sierra de la Estancias.

The area around Cortijo la Chumbera is full of olive, orange and lemon groves, small farms and fincas where the locals grow their own vegetable s and fodder for their goats. The valley is tranquil and only the sounds of bleating goats, birds and the occasional barking dog disturb the peace. The bubbling of the irrigation system and the croaking of the natter jack toads in the depositos break the silence in the spring as do the flutters of swallows, martins and multicoloured bee-eaters.?

"Excellent accommodation, fabulous food and really friendly hosts!"

We stayed with Lesley and Alan for a short break and were accommodated in the 3 bed apartment, which was a beautiful , traditional building. In face we chose to sleep in one of the cave rooms which was fabulously cosy!
Alan and Lesley are terrific hosts finding the perfect balance - friendly but not intrusive! Alan's cooking is superb and Lesley makes a mean cheesecake!! We would certainly revisit Cortijo La Chumbera!

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, the food and the accommodation here at Cortijo La Chumbera.
We are also very happy that you have found your "Dream Home" here in Andalusia and look forward to welcoming you again either for a stay before you finalise your deal or a meal when you are here. We are always happy to help and advise on trips, sights and festivities.

"Clifftop experience!"

Rather precarious entrance to the property down a very steep and winding driveway. Although after a couple of attempts the approach became easier to navigate - especially in the dark! BUT - nervous … More

Many thanks for your review of our property and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay & dinner with us.
The directions to our house, on our website, do state that the drive is a steep one!
Unfortunately in this area of Spain all hostelries, cafes & bars etc expect customers not to put loo paper down the toilets as the drains are easily blocked and generally work on a pozo negro system, we are not alone!

"Relax in peace and quiet"

We had a lovely stay at Cortijo La Chumbera. The peace and quiet sat chilling outside were just what we wanted. Alan and Lesley cooked excellent meals for us, one of them being to celebrate my husba… More
