About this location

The Andalucia 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, tranquillity 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 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 reasonable 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.

The village of Riogordo is five minutes away by car where most grocery items may be purchased as well as freshly baked bread. Fresh fish, four butcher's and two banks. Wednesday there is a street market. There is a good choice of local restaurants and bars near by, as well as dozens to choose from at the coast, catering for all tastes. 24 hour medical centre in nearby Colmenar.

Thanks so much for your kind reviews. I think our guests in 2015, may well be disappointed. No more dog visits as we moving a little further away, so not in walking reach for their little feet.

"Wonderful property in beautiful location with stunning pool"

Four friends in our late 20's and early 30's rented this property because we wanted somewhere away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by beautiful scenery and our own private pool. That's exactly what we got! The location was perfect, and a short drive to the nearest village when needed. The pool was amazing, clean and cool and a life saver in June's 30 degree heat.

Lisa and Julian were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Their two dogs also kept us company throughout :-)

Thank you Maja for taking the time to review Horno de Lena. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and that you also enjoyed Henry and Elvis company. We dont let them out if guests don't want dogs around, but this year they have had a very lucky year. Every guest has fallen in love with them both and I have to say they have got FAT.
We hope to welcome you back someday.
Julian and Lisa

"Beautiful, secluded hideaway to celebrate our first wedding anniversary!!"

A perfect 5 night stay to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Compact and tastefully decorated, perfect for a couple or small young family. Pool and hot tub were lovely, very private and with ama… More

Thanks for the review. The track has been tarmaced in the last few years and is now motorway to us !!!! Lol
We have a MG convertible and mange fine, and all our guests just have small hire cars and manage fine. So pleased though, that you had a great anniversary. The off the main road location does ensure lots of peace and tranquility. We are sorry we did not get to meet you, but hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back sometime. Lisa and Julian
