About the home
Imagine sipping a tall glass of sangria, your feet dangling in the cool waters of your own private pool, whilst watching the sunset over the most beautiful mountain range in all Andalucia. The silence in this area is amazing, and guests will immediately feel the stresses of daily life washing away as they settle into mountain life. The traditional white village of Arenas is a short drive away, and boasts local bars and tapas restaurants, as well as a small supermarket, post office and open market on Wednesdays.
The nearby towns of Velez-Malaga and Torre del Mar play host to some great shopping, lovely beaches, an outdoor water-park for the kids, bars and restaurants catering for every nationality and taste and provide a good contrast to the tranquility of the mountain surroundings at Cortijo Tranquilo. Both towns have a weekly market which is well worth a visit.
Those with a car can take advantage of other activities in the surrounding areas, such as Horse riding, Kayaking, Canyoning, windsurfing, Jeep tours and much more. Your agents can help you to arrange some lovely days out. A visit to the historic city of Granada is a must, as are trips to the Nerja caves and the Botanical Gardens.

The Costa del Sol region
Boasting "the best climate in Europe", you will find the sunshine plentiful and the evenings long and warm. The area surrounding Cortijo Tranquilo is steeped in Spanish history, as one of the last strongholds of the Moors you will see the remains of ancient watchtowers and castles lining the horizons.
The traditional white village of Arenas, your closest 'pueblo', retains its Spanish way of life, with local run bars offering set menus of local fare and a small farmers market offering local produce.
Historic Granada is an hour away by car, and visitors are ceaselessly amazed by the Alhambra Palace there, as well as the beauty of the town itself. Nerja, some 40 minutes along the coast road, plays host to a wonderful set of natural caves, in its entirety, the largest cave network in Europe.
The Velez Malaga / Arenas area
Out of the hubbub of the tourist areas, you are still only 15 minutes drive from beautiful beaches, vibrant shopping centres and a selection of fine restaurants. Both Velez Malaga and Torre del Mar are within easy reach and have a little something for everyone.
You will find a guide to local activities, festivals and places of interest in your welcome pack.
