The Andalucia region
Costa del Sol is mainly known for the resorts on the coasts, with their English bars and nightlife. However, the Costa del Sol / Andalucia has much more to offer www.andalucia.com. The true Spain lies a few miles inland away from the hustle and bustle. In Axarquia, in particular, the culture of Spain is still alive and many traditional fiestas take place in the many white washed villages that abound in this area.
A trip to Malaga city with the new art museums such as Picasso museum www.museopicassomalaga.org, the Thyssen Museum and Revello de Toro should not be missed for any art lover (45min drive on the autovia or take the bus from Torre del Mar along the coast road). Malaga has a new 'port zone' with good shopping arcades and bars where one can sit and watch the sun go down with the backdrop of the city.
The city of Granada is only a 2hour drive with the famous Alhambra Palace www.alhambradegranada.org and of course the Sierra Nevadas are only a short drive away too.
If beaches are your need then the Spanish town of Torre del Mar offers this, together with a Water Park, Shopping Mall with Bowling Alley and Cinema that show films in English. A 20 min drive takes you to Nerja with its white sandy beaches and the famous 'Caves of Nerja'. Concerts are sometimes held in the actual caves! www.nerja.com
Two golf courses, Baviera www.bavieragolf.com and Anoreta www.anoretagolf.es are within a short drive 15mins and 20mins away respectively.
Los Romanes is a typical Spanish village and is famous for its olives and the local olive press provides some of the best olive oil in the region.
The local goat herder often 'walks' his goats down the hillside and it is always a fantastic sight, the age old traditions are still alive and well.
The village has a small shop supplying your basic needs, a bar and a restaurant which is a 3min walk from the villa. Three further restaurants are within a 5min drive; 2 of which are situated on the lakeside. There are further shops about a 5mins drive in the village of Puente don Manuel. However the hypermarket is in Torre del Mar about 15mins drive.
Lake Vinuela is a reservoir providing drinking water to the Malaga area. The lake provides a variety of activities; sailing, canoeing, fishing together with fine walks and off the road cycling. Power craft are not allowed on the lake therefore creating a tranquil place. Sailing dinghies and canoes can be hired from the sailing club just past The Vinuela Hotel 5min drive.
The famous whitewashed villages of the area provide fantastic day trips; Comares, perched precariously on the top of a mountain, is a must see experience, and provides the best sunset pictures offering a 360degree perspective of the area.
There are many 'routes' in this region; The route of the Grape, The route of the Olive The route of the Raisin - all available within a short drive of the villa. Many local fiestas take place during the year and one would be unfortunate to miss one in any of the villages. Sample the local delights and take home the true memories of Spain.
Andalucia is not just for summer...during the cooler months of October to March why not enjoy the sunny days of winter averaging 17degrees centigrade. The cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville, are all within a couple of hours drive from the villa. Malaga is of course a city that is often missed on the tourist map and is well worth a visit. only a 40min drive.
There is still an enormous wealth of attractions to enjoy out of season when there is less traffic and more importantly its CHEAPER!

"Very comfortable villa with fantastic views"
We had a fantastic fortnight at Casa 23. The villa is one of the best equipped we have ever stayed in. The views from the terrace and pool are outstanding and a photographer's dream. There is plenty to see and do in the area and a number of nearby good restaurants including one within walking distance which is always a plus. However we were enjoying the villa and pool so much we spent a lot of time there rather than sightseeing so we need to come back to see some of the things we missed!
I am so glad that you and your family had a good holiday at Casa 23. We would certainly love to welcome you back in the future.

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 night stay in this beautiful villa. Everything was just perfect, the villa is a real home from home and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The highlight for us (in addition to the perfect weather) was the absolutely stunning views from all the terraces, we enjoyed lovely evenings with good food and wine watching the sun set over the lake and mountains. Excellent restaurants can be found within a very short distance, one being just a short stroll away. Can't recommend this villa highly enough, so much so we are returning in September. Very many thanks to Sue the owner for sharing with us her delightful villa.
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I am sure you will enjoy September as much. Thank you for sharing you views.

Thank you for your review. I think though you must have exceeded the speed limit driving to Granada! I think you meant 1hour 40mins! Hope to see you back at Casa 23 next year.

"An Artists Paradise -"
I loved the peaceful setting, the stunning views which as an artist I appreciated and never tired of sketching. I was great being away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist spots. Although it is within easy access of the coast, Malaga city and Granada for a day trip out. The owner has thought of everything. The pool was delightful and the many terraces give you choice of space.
Thank you for your review. We hope to see you return to do more of your stunning art work of the area. Next time when it isn't so hot....maybe May time when all the poppies and spring flowers are about.

"Fantastic villa with breathtaking views"
What can I say!! We all enjoyed our visit to the villa it was everything that was advertised and more. We certainly were sad to say goodbye at the end of the twelve days that we spent there. The views are stunning and you never get tired of staring at it. The villa was well maintained and clean and had all the comforts of home. The weather was fantastic for the duration of our stay and it was lovely to jump in the pool when it got too hot, plus you can still see the lovely view.
I would highly recommend the restaurant which is situated about a 2 minutes walk away from the villa. We visited it three times and thoroughly enjoyed every meal.
I would thoroughly recommend the resort of Nerja too, we spent a day there sightseeing and finished off by visiting the caves which were beautiful and tranquil.
Thank you Sue for all your help and for making it a truly unforgettable holiday.
What a fantastic review. Thank you very much. We do try to make it easy for everyone. We look forward to seeing you again, hopefully!
