Description from owner

Description

Casa Carabo is in the heart of Andalusia in the working village of Riogordo. Surrounded by olive groves and dominated by the "Three Sisters" mountains, Riogordo is ideally situated for touring and visiting the Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, the Alhambra Palace in Granada, the famous flamenco city of Seville and Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso. The region is connected by an excellent fast road network.

The house easily accommodates up to eight people in four bedrooms and with three bathrooms. The spacious terrace area with its refreshing plunge pool and bbq area provides a stylish area for al fresco living.

The village has its own olive oil factory and it is not unusual to see the workers returning from the fields on horseback, trotting through the village, stopping for a cold beer on their way home.

There are numerous bars and local restaurants serving excellent value tapas and traditional fare.

Perfect for walkers, there are hiking trails starting in

Perfect for walkers, there are hiking trails starting in the village as well as a whole range of walking in the Axarquia region.

Fancy a day at the beach? Torre del Mar is just 35 kms from the house. Great for a walk along the promenade and a delicious lunch of freshly grilled sardines at one of the numerous beach shacks.

Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

The inland Malaga province near Riogordo is very mountainous and quite different to the overdeveloped coastal region. Much of the area is allocated to Natural Parks including El Torcal Park Nature Reserve which is known for its unusual limestone rock formations, the Natural Park of Fuente de Piedra which is in a stunning setting especially popular with bird watchers and, also, close to Malaga, the Montes de Malaga Natural Park which is a region of dense pine forest crossed by small valleys and water courses and waterfalls, high up in the mountains overlooking Malaga and the Mediterranean. The caves and beaches at Nerja and the wine area of Montilla are both a comfortable trip from the house.

Riogordo

Riogordo is a typical Moorish style "white" rural Spanish village. It nestles at an altitude of 400 metres in the hills just 45 minutes drive inland from Malaga Airport in the Axarquia region of Andalucia in Southern Spain. The area benefits from its proximity to the coastal area but has generally remained unaffected by them so retains its local character and identity.The area has numerous tapas bars and restaurants that provide excellent, great value food.

There are a number of small but very well-stocked mini supermarkets in the village. The nearest are just down the hill from the house, five minutes away on foot in the main square. The banks and ATMs are also there. Larger hypermarkets are in nearby towns.

The nearest golf courses are the Parador at Malaga, Baviera at Velez-Malaga and Antequerra (where the par three 6th is quite spectacular - see gallery) - all are about 30 - 45 minutes from the house.Skiing is available in the Sierra Nevada - about an hour and a half away.From the house it is just about possible to ski in the morning and play golf in shorts in the afternoon!
