The Andalucia region

This sun-soaked stretch of the Spanish coastline in the Province of Malaga, bordering on the provinces of Seville, Cordoba and Granada is steeped in historic, artistic and natural heritage. Nestling in the foothills of the Sierra de Tejeda under the benign gaze of Mount Maroma the many white villages have been influenced and shaped by their Moorish past. The Cortijo is set amongst a network of Roman roads, which criss-cross this area of rural Spain allowing you to feel part of its history. Discover the magic of the Alhambra in Granada, visit the sensual and faintly decadent city of Seville, gaze into the stunning gorge at Ronda, or look in on the world famous rock apes of Gibraltar.


The villa is situated in the mountains of rural Andalucia and is approached from the main Velez Malaga/Arenas road then 1.5 km on the old Roman road network of tracks which criss crosses the entire countryside. A dream for the walker, artist, bird watcher, mountain biker or simply for those who wish to lounge in the sun with nothing more than a pile of books and a glass of wine. There is a large library of books which should suit all tastes. There is also a wide selection of CDs and an iM310 Digital Speaker System for iPod and MP3 players. The villa is within walking distance of the village which offers a bank with cashpoint, a supermarket, a chemist (24hours), numerous shops, bars and restaurants, an internet facility and also a small local market on Wednesday. There is also a bus service to and from Velez Malaga on a daily basis. The area of Arenas village is home to the densest population of chameleons in Europe and is the mascot of the village. The village church still has its minaret from Moorish times and the ruins of the Castle of Bentomiz, which was one of the last to fall when the Christians finally drove the Moors from Andalucia, can be seen from the villa. The village itself is a meandering maze of streets which still retains the magic and atmosphere of old Spain. The residents are warm and friendly and ever ready to offer help or advice.Many other activities such as horse riding, water sports, taking a flight over the Sierras or organised walks can be arranged through the owners.There are numerous excellent golf courses, the closest, Baviera Golf , a 27 hole competition course, is visible from the villa and only 15 minutes drive away. pre book at courses can be found on or for a wider range search under costa del sol golf.Nearby Velez Malaga is a delightful historical town with ample shops and restaurants and an excellent open air market every Thursday.
