The Andalucia / Malaga Province region
Driving along the Costa del Sol overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, about 30 minutes away from Malaga Airport you will enter La Axarquia, a rural region still unspoilt by tourism. Green countryside with white-washed villages, tranquility and a different way of life under the year-round sunshine of Andalucia are waiting for you.
Going up from Torre del Mar into the mountains you will reach Lake Viñuela, a man-made reservoir surrounded by mountains, not only providing the area with water but also forming a spectacular and harmonic part of attraction of this unique and scenic landscape. here you will find several bars/restaurants offering fantastic food.
Heading inland from here you will reach the charming village of Riogordo, nestled into this stunning countryside with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Riogordo translates to Fat River, which is what the village is know for. . Torre del Mar with beaches and all facilities is 20 min away.
The Riogordo area
The pretty whitewashed village of Riogordo lies in the region of Axarquia. This small and unspoilt area of Andalucia –to the north east of Malaga - is still a well kept secret. Untouched by mass tourism, and surrounded by National Parks it is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty between the Sea and Sierras.
The village offers very resonable local restaurants and excellent shopping facilities. Only 20 minutes to the Mediterranean coast, and 40 minutes to Malaga international airport. Due to good motorway connections, Granada and Antequera can be reached in 1 hour, Cordoba and Seville in 2 hours. Lake Vinuela is 10 mins by car.
It is five minutes drive from La Capilla to the pretty white washed village of Riogordo in the region of Axarquia. The village is typically Andalucian with its winding streets and large selection on restaurants ranging from tapas bars, a pizzeria and several high class restaurants. Riogordo has a large selection of small shops including three mini markets which sell freshly baked bread every day, a pharmacy, four butchers, a fishmonger, a weekly market, a shop for stamps, a Post Office and two banks. The 24 hour Health Centre is situated in the next village of Colmenar.
Just 10 minutes drive and you will find the outstanding Lake Vinuela with many bar/restaurants and a little further to the coastal town of Torre del mar with its famous fish restaurants. Nerja just 10 minutes further along the coast is well worth a visit. Excellent roads are easily accessible to visit Granada (1 hour), Antequera (30 minutes), Ronda and Gibralter (under 2 hours),Cordoba and Seville (2.30 hours).

La Capilla was a nice size for our family of 5. The villa is well maintained and comfortable. It has a small unheated pool and a hot tub. We used the hot tub, but the pool was too cold and exposed to use during our stay (early April).
Wifi is available at an extra cost and it is best to contact the owner in advance if you require it.
The location is lovely but very remote so a car is an absolute necessity. The nearest town of Riogordo is a 5 to 10 minute drive from the villa, and there are no facilities within walking distance.The final road up to the villa is unmade and unlit. If you are looking for a quiet,peaceful location to completely unwind and relax then this is a perfect place to be.
Thank you for your review Julie. We are pleased you liked the house and that you had a good stay. The weather when you arrived 28th March, was very changeable, so I dont blame you not using the pool. We provided the spa from 2012 to enable guests to enjoy the outside of La Capilla and its lovely views, even in the cooler months, so we are pleased you benefited from this.
The pool is situated on the other side of the house for total privacy and benefits from total seclusion. This does mean however, it is open and exposed to the to the elements, which in summer, brings a lovely cooling breeze.
The wifi is included in the price in June July and August, but is on request out of season. We do this to try and keep the costs down out of season, then guests can choose if they would like to add the wifi cost.
We hope to welcome you back sometime in the future. As you say this villa is for guests who want privacy tranquility, yet only being a short drive to Riogordo with all amenities. Shame the weather was not better as there is a bar restaurant Ortegas within a short walk. For future guests , details are in the information booklet provided in the house.

Spent two weeks at La Capilla. Reasonably remote location 4K ftom the village. The peace and tranquillity are priceless. Having been off work recently with stress, this holiday was the perfect antidote. I would recommend La Capilla it is a beautifully maintained villa with all the home comforts including a washing machine. I arrived home after two weeks without any washing to do as i did it whilst sunbathing around the pool. The only negative was receiving the directions to the villa the day before travelling. Having said that, the directions were very clear and easy to follow.
Hi, Thanks so much for taking time to review La Capilla. We seemed to have resolved the problem with the directions. As with yourselves, we had sent them out, but you had not received them. We looked into this and it seems that because I attach photos with markers along the way, it was being blocked or sent to spam by some e mail servers. We have now taken the photos off of the arrival doc and all fine. Directions can be sent as early as clients wish. We hope to welcome you back one day and we were pleased that you all enoyed your stay.
