Further details outdoors

Swimming Pool: Our 12 x 6 metre pool is securely fenced with self-closing gates, all to the latest European standards, however parents should always be vigilant as the pool does not have a life guard. Parents may also appreciate that we have reduced the depth at the shallow end to ½ metre and now have easy access steps for children. Pool towels are not provided but may be hired for a nominal amount.

Further details

Anyone with a small baby or toddler should mention this when booking as we can provide many items to help keep luggage weights down. Baby bath, steriliser, buggy, changing mat, stair gate etc etc.

The Andalucia region

Periana lies within an area known as Axarquía, which in turn, is part of the autonomous region of Andalucía. The village has a population of around 3700 and is an olive and peach growing community with its own olive oil cooperative, and is on the “Route of Oil and Mountains.” In summer there is a ‘Festival of Peaches’ held in the village during August, and of course the olive harvest is marked by a ‘Fiesta of the Green Olives’ in March.

Ask us for a list of "Things to do" it runs to 14pages!


Away from the hustle and bustle of the Costa del Sol is the pretty village of Periana, surrounded by mountains on three sides and lake views to the South. It is 540 metres above sea level and just 50 minutes from Málaga Airport or 75 minutes from Granada. It has a sub tropical climate and has a myriad of wild flowers, almond and orange blossoms in spring, to rival any alpine meadow. In summer there is often a welcome breeze and the thermal currents over Lake Vinuela attract eagles and other birds of prey.

Nature lovers will find much around this area to please, as there are many walks and cycle rides to be enjoyed, with unspoilt villages and ancient ruins to be explored. The beaches of Torre del Mar are just 25 minutes away and of course the Alhambra Palace in Granada is on most tourist’s agenda, but it is essential to book well in advance. Málaga, is of course, a thriving area capital and has something for all, and no matter whether it is museums, art galleries, restaurants and tapas bars, shopping or theatre that you seek it is all to be found within this cosmopolitan city.
