The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol is well known for its beaches and night-life but staying slightly inland provides a far more rewarding traditional Spanish experience.
Although Riogordo is away from the busy Costa del Sol, it still only 25 minutes from the beaches and attractions of the coast and with a superb road system, access to places like Granada, Cordoba, Malaga or Ronda is easy. Granada, or in winter the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada, is only an hour and a half away. There is a good bus service to Málaga from Riogordo and Colmenar, but a hire car is essential to take full advantage of the area.
Riogordo was built by the Catholic kings besieging Velez Malaga, although there are indications of earlier settlement by the Carthaginians and Romans. It is a classic Spanish 'pueblo blanco' (white village) with houses built in the typical Moorish-influenced Andalucían village style, some with interior patios, wells and stables.
Nestled amongst majestic mountain ranges, it retains a real sense of history while boasting a full range of shops, banks and restaurants. Life is tranquil and leisurely, the villagers friendly and welcoming.
