The Costa del Sol region
Malaga enjoys a subtropical climate. It has one of the warmest winters in Europe, with average temperatures of 17 °C (63 °F) during the day and 8 °C (46 °F) at night in the period from December to February. The summer's season lasts about 8 months, from April to November, although also in remaining 4 months temperatures sometimes reach around 20 °C (68 °F).
Malaga's history spans about 2,700 years and is one of the oldest cities in the world. The archaeological remains and monuments from the Phoenician, Roman, Arabian and Christian eras convert the historic centre into an "Open Museum" displaying its rich history of more than 3,000 years.
This important cultural infrastructure and the rich artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of Malaga as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture. The internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were both born in Malaga.
Las Golondrinas is perfectly situated to offer easy access to the rich bustling culture of Malaga City, including:
• Pablo Picasso Museum - situated close to the site of Picasso's birthplace, featuring many great works by the artist.
• La Malagueta - the Malaga Bull Ring and associated museum.
• La Alcazaba - an immense 11th century Moorish military fortress built on the remains of a Roman fortress.
• Kelipe Centro de Arte Flamenco - intimate show of traditional Flamenco by husband and wife.
• La Concepcion - the historic botanical gardens of Malaga.
• Feria de Malaga - Malaga's 9 day festival at the start of August. It begins with a great firework display at midnight on Friday, and from then on the city is filled with music and dancing, fun fairs and nightly concerts..

"Ian and Sally really know how to cook!"
This rural house is just 20 minutes outside of Málaga. It has a view of Málaga city and harbor that is stunning. The beds are good, There is a wood stove that is really enjoyable. One of our highlights of the weekend there was playing hodge-podge in front of a fire place. Our days had lots of rain, so the wood fire was important. The owners, Ian and Sally, are delightful. They agreed to cook two lunches and an English breakfast for us. The food was marvelous. As a group, we had lots of fun and got a lot of work done.

Come to Golondrinas and you will not regret it!
