The Andalucia region

Andalucia is one of the most beautiful regions of Spain and the amazing direct view of Lake Vinuela and the mountain range of the Sierra Tejeda will not cease to impress. The beauty of the forever changing colours of the mountains,the tranquility of Lake Vinuela and the peace of the countryside are inspiring in this rural yet well connected region.

The many Andalucian 'pueblo blancos' are a short drive away and can be seen lighting up the hill side at night.

Granada,with it's fabulous Alahambra Palace, Cordoba, Ronda and Malaga can all be visited in a day.

The beautiful beaches of the Costa can be reached easily from the house.The nearest popular resorts being Torre Del Mar, Nerja and a little further along the coast is Herradura.

For those who like all things natural the flora changes seasonally and the nearby National Park of the Tejeda mountains can be visited and explored on foot.

Experience real Spain at Casa Ribeyro!
