Description

Casa Almendros, our beautifully situated detached villa set in 2.5 acres of open countryside with mountains as a back drop yet close to a village - with all amenities, all less than 1 hour by car from Malaga airport. Set amid almond trees the property faces due South with 180 degree views to East and West from the terraces; it is easy to access via a concrete drive off a country road.

There are terraces to the front and side of the property with outside furniture for summer dining & sunbathing. However, as this is an almost brand new house the garden is an ongoing project. Swimming-in summertime there is a splash pool on the terrace plus a municipal pool in the village open during the high season.

Now with free WiFi.

Only a short drive to the World-famous 'Camino del Rey' footpath above the El Chorro gorge; just re-opened after extensive rehab.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

Coast/Beach
At the coast - another world, but only 60 minutes away by car, are the beaches in Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella.

For the more adventurous, we are only 1.5 hours from Algeciras if you fancy a trip to exotic Morocco - by fast ferry 25 minutes to Africa.

Golf
Antequera, 15 kms away, is a beautiful real Spanish town with much history and all facilities.
There is a superb 18 hole golf course, you can hire clubs on exiting Malaga airport.

Culture vultures will find we are very well placed to visit :-
Cordoba with its Mosque and Jewish quarter-about 1.5 hours.
Similarly the Alhambra is a must in Granada with its Moorish palaces and gardens - about 1.5 hours.
Sevilla famous for its Ferias, School of Equestrian Art and many beautiful buildings - about 2.5 hours
Ronda, impressive setting and the oldest bull ring in Spain.

Malaga itself, 1 hour, has much to offer both for culture and kids.

Antequera, 15 kms away, is a beautiful really Spanish town with much history and all facilities.

Overhead we have vultures, eagles, honey buzzards etc. plus the summer visitors of swifts, swallows, bee-eaters, and my new friend the black-eared wheat ear..

Markets
Several - where you can pick up bargains in clothes and shoes, as well as fresh fruit and veg.

Restaurants
Spanish food is plain and good, excellent pork and fish - we can recommend to you several around the village and in the nearby countryside.

Shopping – the village also has several little supermarkets, plus 5 bakeries, 3 ladies hairdressers, a butcher, Post Office, pharmacy and a 24/7 Heath Centre. The church and museum- lie in the centre of the this pretty white village with its cobbled streets, lying at the foot of the Sierra de Abadalajis

El Chorro

Our local village : Valle de Abdalajis, at 1.5kms is the hang gliding capital of Southern Spain - they jump off the Sierra to the North of the house, and somehow manage to land near the club house on the edge of the village.

Horse riding - we know several people personally who have good horses for hire – for hacking out on the many quiet tracks.

Rock climbing, mountain biking and hill walking are to be found on our doorstep - some of the best climbing in Europe is to be had here. 2 mountain bikes available for hire.

Close by is the lake district of Ardales & El Chorro - wonderful turquoise-blue lakes, where swimming, walking, picnicking, fishing are available.

“Heavenly”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

We booked Casa Almendros to use it as a base for touring Andalusia, as Granada, Cordoba & Seville are all readily accessible by motorway from nearby Antequera (30-min drive). However, when we saw the stunning location of the house our plans changed instantly. Why spend every day touring when we could enjoy stunning views and absorb the magic of rural Spain literally from our doorstep? And it was magic. Our most lasting memories will be of relaxing on the patio in the evening watching the moon rise, idly tracking the progress of cars across the hills and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere. The house itself was much larger than we had imagined from the photographs – a huge kitchen with everything that one would want for preparing meals, a large living room, more bedrooms than two of us required and a bathroom each. More comfortable than home! We did get to Cordoba & Granada, and Antiquera itself was a delightful surprise – the dolmens and Alcezaba are really worth visiting, as is the old town with it’s medieval streets and squares. The rock formations in the nearby El Torqual national park are also a must. We didn’t get to walk the El Caminito Del Rey (it was booked out), so we’ll just have to come back. What a lovely thought! Our thanks to Sue & Ken for laying on everything we could want - and for the sheer pleasure of staying in their lovely casa.
