A very special country house in private estate in the hills overlooking Malaga.

Stay in one of the few remaining classic Andalucian cortijos, the location is unique:a totally private valley on the edge of Malaga city -just five miles as the crow flies from the cathedral. You can be in the city centre, at the beach or in the airport in under 20 minutes. The village has seven ventas (bar/restaurants) and a village shop which has a meals-to-order service. Additionally, in-house catering can be arranged

The house sits in 91 secluded acres of olive, almond and carob groves. There are wonderful panoramic views to the western Montes and the Mediterranean Sea. Built as an olive mill in 1854, the floors are terracotta and the rooms have beamed ceilings. In the mill itself -an integral part of the home- the original stones and press are still intact. The house has been restored using original Andalucian materials, colours and design features, while offering all modern conveniences, from the fully equipped modern kitchen and bathrooms to broadband internet connection and satellite TV.

The large pool (11metres X 8metres) sits on the hillside above the house and has a fully equipped cottage with kitchen and bathroom.

The Andalucia region

Las Adelfas is situated just outside the city of Malaga, one of the great cities of Andalucia and the heart of the Costa del Sol. Although this is Europe's great tourist coast, the main holiday resorts are mainly west of the city and Malaga remains a very traditional Spanish city. Its centre is ancient and unspoilt: a Roman theatre, a Moorish castle (11th century) and winding pedestrianised streets. From Las Adelfas it's easy to make day trips to the inland cities of Seville, Granada and Cordoba.


The estate is on the edge of the small village of Los Gamez. This is where the countryside begins for most Malaguenos and the area is well known for its ventas: these are the family-run roadside bar/restaurants. There are 7 of these within just one mile of the property so there's plenty of choice if you want to step out and eat locally. There's also a small village shop which prepares take-away meals to order.

The village is the cultural and physical centre of the tradition of verdiales, folk music and dance which extends through the Montes de Malaga and is said to predate flamenco. You will probably be able to hear and see performances of this unique music in the local bars.
