The Andalucia region
Come and visit the OTHER side of Spain. The region of Malaga is diverse, with mountains, sea and lakes. There are many walks in the National Park, Monte de Malaga, which is approximately 30 mins drive away. The whitewashed village of Comares (30km) is visable from the house, and is a lovely place to visit as it is mainly pedestrian. It is the highest village in Andalucia.
El Torcal, is a mountain range that has been erroded by the weather. It was once under sea level. It is about 45-60 minutes from the farmhouse and has been likened to the grand canyon - there is a visitor centre with lots of information, and on Saturday evenings in the Summer you can visit the telescope and see what is in the night skies.... a fantastic day out. Take a picnic - there are lots of places to stop on-route and on site, to take in the spectacular views.
The Caves at Nerja, (41KM) on the Eastern side, are also a good place to visit, and is well signposted from the Autovia. Ladies be warned - wear flat shoes!
Why not visit a Wolf Park, there is one near Antequera approximately 1 1/4 hr away, (64 KM). They live in a natural habitat and there are 4 different species you can see. They are not domesticated but are socialised, there is a tour you can go on with the owner round the various areas they live.
Malaga is approximately one hour away (49KM) but we would suggest catching the bus from Torre del Mar (24KM), as parking is bad in the City. There is a castle, port and a very good shopping centre, with plenty of places to stop for a drink and tapas.
The cities of Seville (225KM) 2 1/2 hours and Granada (106KM) 1 1/2 hour drive. Gibraltar is also a nice day out and is about 2 1/2 hours away.
From Torre del Mar you can get the bus into most of the local towns. There are many beaches in the area, with the best ones being in Torre del Mar and Nerja (Burriana).
If you want to know what the weather is like in the area please look at www.eltiempo.es/vinuela.
Tesorillo is ideally located for a quiet family get away from it all break, as well as bird watchers, walkers and bikers, with many tracks criss-crossing the area. Also it is lovely to relax after a hard day on the beach, in peace and quiet. As well as our own pool, we have a brand new village swimming pool, about 4 minute walk away.
Comares (30KM) is approximately 1 hour away, through the lovely countryside, can be seen from the house.This is the highest white village in Andalucia, and well worth a visit. The village itself is pedestrian, but the car park is free.
Marbella (112 KM) is about 1 1/2 hours drive away, and is a lovely place to 'people watch', tho be warned there are pickpockets there.
There are many fine restaurants/bars within a 15 minute drive, and one within a 5 minute walk. There is an excellent Indian Restaurant the other side of Los Romanes, (8 minute drive) which gets fantastic reviews. Between May and September there are lots of fiestas around the local villages (any excuse for a party!) and you may come across one during your stay. Definitely not to be missed! The Spanish have 26 Bank Holidays so they have the right idea we think!
You can fish at certain times of the year on Lake Vinuela but a license has to be obtained from the local town hall.
Velez Malaga, (17KM) is a working town, with a castle, and many churches to visit and is approximately 20 minutes away. There is also a great water park there open during the Summer. Wonderful fun for the kids!
Sea Life is another good day out, it is in Benalmadena, (82KM) about 1 1/4 hours away - we have some discount vouchers should you decide to visit there, please ask for one.
