The Andalucia region

This area in Andaluicia is in the province of Malaga, with the stunning Mountains and wonderful coastline.

It is not over-crowded by tourisam.The local resort of Torre del Mar is 15 minutes drive where the beach is unspoit and there are many restaurantes and beach cafes. There are many white- washed villages which are steeped in history .

The very pretty resort of Nerja is 20 minute drive away where you will find the famous caves which are a must for any visitor .

Granada is reached in 1.5 hours with the Alhambra Palace ( tickets for this need to be booked in advance which the owners are happy to do at the time of booking your holiday ) and the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada are only 1.5 hours away

Velez Malaga

Arenas is a maze of narrow streets with many fountains and squares where you can sit and admire the traditional Moorish-style architecture The horse and mule are still common sights in this typical Spanish village, which has not been affected by the passing of time.

There is a bank with cash point, a chemist and many little shops ( although some of these appear to be in people's front rooms you will need to be brave and pull back the curtain and say hola ). Arenas has restaurants and many bars, where the locals always offer a friendly welcome.

Arenas is at the foot of Bentomiz mountain at the top of which are the remains of a roman fortress.

Velez Malaga is 10 km from Arenas and is the capital of Axarquia. it is an old market town. The Fortaleza is well worth a visit built in the 13 century it still stands as a symbol of the Moorish civilisation of Velez Malaga.

There are several 13 /14 century churches in the old town, and many shops and restaurants also a large air conditioned shopping centre for when the heat of the day is too much.

What a wonderful stay at Casa Mariposa!The track up to the villa is steep, but it's mercifully short and once you've done it twice you will have cracked it. Moreover, different to other vill… More

"Peaceful & secluded location for a relaxing holiday"

After quite a drive up the steep hillside negotiating hairpin bends the villa was an oasis of peace and tranquility. Everything you could want for self-catering with the bonus not only of your own pool but a hot tub too. Ann and Simon were on hand for any advice or emergency but left you alone if that was what you wanted - perfect! We would advise a big shop at the supermarket before you arrive as you may not want to leave for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and will definitely put it on our list of places we wish to return to in the future.
