The Andalucia region
Andalucia has many dimensions. The coast and the rural areas such as the Axarquia where Casa 23 is situated.
In the Axarquia, the culture of Spain is still alive and many traditional fiestas take place in the white washed villages that abound in this area.
The cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville is only a 2/3hour drive with the famous Alhambra Palace www.alhambradegranada.org, the Sierra Nevadas are only a short drive away too.
A trip to Malaga city with the new art museums; 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.
Beaches at Nerja and Torre del Mar are a short drive away as are two golf courses, Baviera golf and Anoreta Golf.
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 Miguel's which is a 3min walk from the villa has some of the finest steak guests have ever tasted and a very reasonably priced menu. 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.
