The Andalucia region

Cortijo Barranquero is the perfect location for excursions to Granada, Seville and Cordoba which are less than two hours drive away. If you desire to visit Malaga we would recommend that you park your car in Torre del Mar and go into Malaga on the local bus to avoid parking problems and stress. Bur travel is also remarkably cheap. The best sandy beaches are East of Nerja 30-40 minutes drive away, though Torre del Mar and other local beaches are also very popular.

Lake Vinuela

Close to the outskirts of Los Romanes where Cortijo Barranquero is situated there are great walking tracks.There are five good restaurants in the area, one of them within easy walking distance.

May to Sept is Fiesta time and there are always plenty of fiestas going on in one of the local villages during this period.

The Villa is very well equipped.

"Everything we could hope for from a holiday home"

This property ticks every box for every age group (except toddlers due to the pool not being fenced). We were two couples traveling with 4 children aged 10,14,16 and 21. The pool was magnificent and from the terrace there are views across the hills to the white village of Comares -this looked magical at night - we watched their fire work display from the terrace on the final night of their fiesta. There are plenty of shaded areas to sit, plenty of sunny areas to sunbathe and great not having to take sun bathing towels - frees up a lot of luggage allowance. We loved sitting around the bar drinking sangria whilst we barbequed our evening meal. The butchers shop near to the 'British shop' is excellent value for meat (Carina will direct you) -its about a 10 minute drive and the british shop does supply most things but at a price so pay a visit to Lidl at the Velez-Malaga junction as soon as you can to stock up - however the wine sold at the british shop is an absolute find - 69 cents a bottle and very drinkable - and they usually give you a bottle of complimentary red as well!! so do try it. Beer is cheaper at Lidl and you can get wine at the same price at Lidl too. Try the cava at Lidl for 1.50 euro - excellent. The villa is well equipped with cooking facilities and we felt it lacked nothing at all (except maybe serving spoons). There is a great selection of up to date and classic DVDs and CDs to suit all tastes - the kids loved being able to just chill out inside every now and again. And the WiFi is of course the blood line of all teenagers - so they were happy on all fronts. My husband who is workaholic also feels able to go on holiday if he has internet access and can 'keep in touch'!. The village bar is not a lively place but is just a little village bar in walking distance that does serve Tapas but we didnt try it. The restaurant El Charco in the village is on the other hand is quite lively - we were there on Saturday night and there were musicians playing on there terrace - food was very nice - catering a little to the british but not so it lost all of its spanish roots. We spent a couple of days at the beach at Nerja which was very nice - restaurants on the beach serve seafood (and other things) and whilst it was full of british and was very touristy it wasnt done too badly. We absolutely loved it here and cannot speak highly enough of Carina the owner who was so helpful with all our questions and booked the table at the restaurant for us - a gem of place that feels like home from home but without the bad weather!!!
