The Andalucia region

Situated in the heart of Andalucía, close to the city of Granada and the historic Alhambra palace, the property is ideally suited to all types of holidays from relaxing by the pool to sightseeing. The summer weather is hot and sunny especially June, July and August and a bit cooler May, September and October.

The region is well known for its agriculture, especially olives and asparagus as well as many other fruit and veg. It is also the only area in Spain where you still get FREE tapas in most bars with your drinks.

The area is renowned for its historic cities and architecture with Malaga, Antequera, Cordoba, Seville, Loja and Granada all within an easy drive.

There are also numerous fiesta and festivals throughout the year

In the peak summer months the temperature can hit 40 on a regular basis and in the other months a much more comfortable 25-30

Villanueva Mesia

Tocon is a small white village of around 1000 residents and has 9 bars, a couple of supermarkets, a chemist, doctors surgery and a church. Nearby are the larger villages of Mesia and Morelada as well as the town of Huetor Tajar with its restaurants, bars and large selection of shops, all within a 10 minute drive.

Further afield the large town of Loja offers a large selection of tapas bars, restaurants and shops.
