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.
The village of Los Romanes,(2mins) has a small supermarket which is very well stocked,Pepe's bar where you can meet the locals and Miguel's great restaurant.There are 2 great Lake side restaurants,visible from the finch,which can be reached on foot.
There are a variety of shops, banks,bars and restaurants nearby in Vinuela and Puente Don Manuel.(10mins)
A hypermarket and shopping mall can be found in Velez-Malaga,the capital of the Axarquia region,which has a beautiful 'old town'.
The nearest beach is Torre Del Mar, a bustling spanish coastal town with large expanses of beach and numerous beach 'chiringitos' where you can enjoy freshly cooked sardines and squid with a welcome glass of wine.
The area is perfect for walking and hiking (maps provided) and fishing. Sailing and horse riding can be arranged locally.

"Lovely place, lovely people, relaxed to the max"
A perfect vacation spot away from the crowds and the beaches, beautiful location, outstanding accommodation and truly welcoming hosts. Alex and Charles met us at the local pub for a welcoming drink then helped us along the final stretch of country road to the house, and to move our luggage, they made us feel at home instantly - thanks guys. The starter pack of groceries was a simple idea but very helpful, especially if your first day is a Sunday. As advised the holiday really needs a car, but the roads are quiet and well signed and you need one anyway to explore the spectacular countryside. We will definitely come back first chance we get.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and so glad you enjoyed your time at Casa Ribeyro. We would love to see you both again anytime. Thank you for your kind comments. Regards,Alex and Charles
